It’s that time again! Did you attend MommyCon last year? If you didn’t, I’m sure you at least heard about it.

Mom Date Day Break: Coffee Cake Muffins & McCafe Coffee

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #McCafeMyWay #CollectiveBias

I spend my days cleaning up messes (lots of them. everywhere.), changing diapers, playing “go fish,” watching Daniel Tiger (meow meow) and Rescue Bots, and sometimes speaking to no one over the age of 4. Sometimes…. I feel like I’m losing my mind. Just a little lot. It took me far too long to realize that I need to also take care of MYSELF. I need to create

Did you know May is Pregnancy Awareness Month? They’ve been celebrating motherhood and pregnancy all month long, including some awesome twitter parties each week! I’m thrilled to be jumping on board for the final twitter party of this month for Nurture Week!

Planning a Girls’ Night In: Raspberry Coconut Daiquiri

I love my kids, of course, but I love my mama time, too. I think some girls’ nights are an absolute must to save sanity! I have great groups of friends to get me out of the house once in awhile—the local moms club has a monthly “moms’ night out” and a group of friends I’ve known forever also tries to get together once a month! We usually take turns hosting and making dinner, sometimes we do something crafty, but we definitely always hang out and chat.

You’re doing OK, mom! (raise money for Save the Children)

When you’re going to have a baby you do so much research on caring for them, right? You read books about the pregnancy and birth, you read about newborn issues and interview pediatricians, you get your home prepared… but what you aren’t going to be ready for is something that isn’t often talked about: mommy guilt and worry.

You will start to question every decision you make, you’ll feel pressures from society that will make you wonder if you’re a terrible mother, and you’ll wonder if your kid is developing at the “right” speed.

5 OTHER uses for diaper rash cream

~This post was written in a partnership with Pinxav. Any opinions are my own.

Okay, moms, we’ve all been there. We all have some sort of diaper rash cream or ointment on hand, we’ve all wiped it on the baby’s bottom. Did you know 75% of babies will develop diaper rash at least once every six months? Eeek. We try to prevent it and when it comes, we treat it. Lots of diaper rash creams create a barrier to repel more wetness against the skin, right? But do they also help soothe and heal?
