2 siblings who passed away in the same week

Posted by on Thursday, June 26, 2014,
I have a wonderful boss. She is like another mother who I wish was my own. She took me under her right wing and treats me like family. She gave me my own office and made sure I was set up to succeed. 

Well, this week, 2 of her siblings died unexpectedly. As she was flying to another state to attend her sister's funeral, her brother passed away. I couldn't even imagine it. I feel sick to my stomach thinking about it. I've already sent my condolences earlier this week when her sister passed away...

3 Things I Wish Someone Told Me About the First Months for a Baby

Posted by on Sunday, June 8, 2014, In : Motherhood 
As a first time mother of a 4 month old baby, I've learned so many things about taking care of a baby. However, there are certain things I wish I knew so I could make a better decisions about some of these things early on.
1. Flat Heads 
Every reading source and and health professional would tell me to put my baby on his back to prevent SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). What they didn't tell me is that this can cause flat heads. I noticed my baby started getting a flat side on the back of hi...

Once a full time worker, now a stay at home mother

Posted by on Tuesday, April 8, 2014, In : Motherhood 
When I was 21, I had no idea if I was ever going to get married or when I was going to have kids. I was a senior in college, finishing my last semesters for my bachelor degree and just started discovering alcohol. I graduated at 22 with my degree and started working full time right away. I realized quickly that working full time is so overrated. We go to school striving to get good grades and work hard for a degree and now I'm at an office working 9-5 and living for the weekend.

After working ...

I've come to realized that Breastfeeding is a full time job

Posted by on Saturday, March 29, 2014,
One side of one of my breasts is extremely plugged right now and it is very hard in this area. I feel at least 5 bumps in there so my ducts in that area are plugged. I have no idea how to unplug it and I've been sitting with my pump to try to empty that breast the for the last hour. My baby is napping right now so I can't directly feed him at the moment because it's a much needed rest for him. I've come to the conclusion that breastfeeding is a full time job in itself (in order to make sure w...

Amount of breastmilk I am producing - from less than 1 oz to now over 5 oz

Posted by on Tuesday, February 25, 2014, In : Motherhood 
When I first started pumping my breast milk, my first 15 min session produced under 1 oz and that's including both breasts! On the 3rd day after I gave birth was when I started pumping to get more milk coming. Now, 15 days later, I am finally producing over 5 oz. What a difference and relief! I'm finally making a surplus for my baby.

 We are no longer supplementing my baby's diet with formula.

Many old timers are not susceptible to change

Posted by on Saturday, January 25, 2014,
I guess when I get to my 50s, I might be this way but as a 30 year old and being surrounded by a lot of 40s and 50 year olds, I noticed that old timers are not susceptible to change.

With new technology, there is always going to be new tools introduced to an industry. Not only old timers don't accept the new processes easily, they even outwardly complain. They have no problem or shame and voices their frustration even before the process and changes have happened.

Anyone experienced the same t...
