Waiting for the Storm to Pass Fake it till you make it.  Keep your head up.  Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain. All those things.  Right?  You know what I’m talking about?  Sometimes putting one foot in front of the other sets all things in motion.  Inspiration breeds inspiration.  Right?! One Hell of a Year So, let’s back up.  It’s been a minute since …

  Breast vs bottle.  Co-sleeping: yes or no? Cry it out or rock them to sleep?  How the heck do I know?  I am not a psychologist.  Nor do I hold anything even closely resembling a medical degree.  This post will not answer any of those questions for you.  Because here is what I do know: the only person who knows what the f&#k is best… is you. Still with me?  Good.  I apologize for …
