Ready to Take Off as a Mother of Four

It’s almost here. Very shortly, I will become a mother of four. Four. Motherhood is in and of itself a true blessing. So how grateful am I to be blessed with the opportunity to be called “Mama” by four little people? Incredibly grateful! I’ve been told that mothering four is easier than three. If that’s true, then I know for sure that I’ll have this mommyhood x 4 in the bag.

The Due Date Waiting Game

My due date is officially a thing of the past. It came and went and nothing happened. I wasn’t expecting to deliver the baby that day, hardly any women ever do. But I was expecting to feel something. You know, a contraction or two. Or three or four. My body and I have been through this 3 times before. We know the drill. No need for a dress rehearsal, we got this. I was certain with all the nesting I nested and the cooking I cooked and the preparing I prepared, that I would have actually had the baby early. That clearly hasn’t been the case.

Celebrating My Amazing Year as a Disney Mama

I’ll never forget the day it happened. I was vacationing in Malaysia visiting my sister when I received an email inviting me to join Disney Baby. The start date would be April 1. Naturally, I assumed this was some kind of April Fool’s joke. Me? Work for Disney? How could I resist!? Luckily it turned out to be the real deal and I couldn’t be any happier!

Easy DIY Receiving Blanket for Baby

It’s no secret that I’ve been nesting. So much so that I’m pretty much nesting all day and into the night. Today, I had a dear friend come over for a visit. As we chatted, I sewed. Then I made chicken noodle soup. Then I… just kidding. That was it. Ha! As if that isn’t enough. All I should be doing from now until Baby arrives is rest. I just can’t help it!

Why Every Mom Needs to Try Freezer Cooking

I did it. I ventured into the world of freezer cooking and I’m not looking back. For a long, long time, as long as freezer cooking pins have existed on Pinterest, I’ve been dying to try it. Heck, even before Pinterest — gasp! I know, how did we ever survive? — I’ve wanted to try freezer cooking. I’m not surprised that I finally jumped into it during this crazy nesting spurt I’m going through. Without even having to think about it, I knew that cooking for a family of 6 postpartum would not make it on my “what I’d rather be doing” list. So I decided to finally grab the Ziplock bags by the box and go for it.
