I'd love to say this was just a funny little idea I had for one of the comics in my book...but no! This is real life people! So yeah...this really did happen between my husband and I. After a particularly bad night of frequent wake-ups my husband rolled over to me, "So he slept through [...]

“Lactavist” has become a dirty word. The more we share our feelings on social media about how we love breastfeeding, the more we are attacked and put on the outs. We are called a “lactavist” or someone who is “pushing breastfeeding” onto people. Any research that is shared is torn apart and disregarded. I've heard people say, [...]

  Although many social media and mainstream media out there would like us to “end the mummy wars”, what they are really doing is trying to silence our most inner passions and experiences.

2018-10-07T13:08:50+00:00May 7th, 2014|Just For Fun|
