Blaire was a sweet little frank breech baby, which means she was butt down, with her head, hands and feet all up in my rib cage. …This resulted in a scheduled C Section for me. I had several friends who had C Sections, and I did tons of research, so I felt really comfortable with what I should expect from my C Section. Well… Some things I was right about some things and wrong about others.

When I was putting together my baby registry, I focused entirely on things for our baby. I knew I’d need things for myself, but just figured I’d grab them at some point before Blaire was born. A week or two before my C Section, I hit up Target for the things I thought I’d need: one nursing tank and one nightgown. I thought I was set! (Insert crazy laugh here.)
Sometimes, when mama doesn’t feel well, it means PJs, popcorn and Paw Patrol in bed at 5PM. And sometimes, your toddler, who you still consider to be your little baby, is just so, so adorable. And that makes you realize you don’t care how terrible you feel. You just have to take some pictures and capture these sweet, sweet moments. Tonight was one of those nights. I felt terrible all day, but had back-to-back meetings most of the day, so I had to tough it out. But, you bet the moment we got home, we changed into our PJs and jumped in bed with some popcorn.
Just this last week I realized how many times I apologize to my friends. For having a messy house. For not having makeup on or my hair done in my off-time. For being dressed
like a bum in comfy clothes. For… who even knows what else. I’m done apologizing. And I think you should stop, too. I think you should stop apologized for who you are and who you’re not.
Can you believe it’s almost May? Which means Mother’s Day is less than 3 weeks away. This year is just flying by! As a mama, I look forward to Mother’s Day as a day to spend with my family, where we get to do whatever I want to do. Sleeping in. Coffee. The Farmer’s Market. FOOD… those are a few of my favorite things. And it’s exactly how I want to spend Mother’s Day. Getting the mom in your life something she will love doesn’t have to be hard. Below, I’ve rounded up a few of the things I’m loving for Spring in my Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Clearly I’m obsessed with bright colors.
