Eco Baby Steps: Planning an Earth Friendly Kid’s Birthday Party

April 21, 2017

I can hardly believe it’s already been two years being a Mommy to our little one. Romeo’s due date was April 22nd, Earth Day, but he decided to come a day after. So last year, when I sat down to plan his first birthday party, I wanted to create a party that would be fun and eco-friendly as Zen Mommy possible. After mapping it all out, I realized I could only try my best to be eco-friendly. I mean, come…

Mommy is My Mantra: Parenting As A Spiritual Practice

February 16, 2017

Years ago, I considered myself “spiritual”. My daily meditation practice was pretty solid.  I studied the work of the world’s top spiritual healers and leaders. I read tons of books and even created quite the new age library.  I thought I’d taken and taught the best spiritual classes and workshops of all time. Then I had kids. “Those who consider themselves spiritually inclined sometimes confess to being mortified by how unspiritual they feel sometimes around their children.” –Susan Stiffelman My toddler…

Find Love in Five Minutes or Less

February 3, 2017

What the worlds needs now…is LOVE sweet LOVE. Yep, we need love more than ever these days. So many of us feel paralyzed and angry about the state of the world. You can’t go a day without hearing about politics- so that means our attention is on injustice, hate, bigotry, and division on a daily basis.  It’s left me feeling a bit cold-hearted and disconnected.  Day after day, I’m bombarded with a multitude of videos and articles on Facebook that…

Baby Boundary Bonanza

November 23, 2016

When I was pregnant, strangers on the street would ask me the magic question: “Is it ok if I touch your belly? I’m asking because I hate when people just touch pregnant women’s bellies without asking.” Touché, non-pregnant person. Touché. Their cheap trick worked because they were oh so polite about invading my personal space therefore I had to give them a feel. Being pregnant is certainly a spectacle. You already feel like a circus animal with all the growling, eating and the…

Sex is Medicine

November 22, 2016

“You knowwwwwww……once you have kids, your sex life really changes,” said every know -it- all parent known to mankind. Really? First- why are you telling me this while I’m pregnant, when there’s no way for me to rewind what’s already been done? Second, do you have any advice for me after that statement? That’s what kills me here. A lot of experienced Moms tell us newbies this but then just kind of walk away like it’s just a mandate. I…

The Vagina Spa Experience

November 22, 2016

Years ago, I had an evening with my husband  that I will never forget. It was one of those days: the moon was high, I was cracked out from swallowing a ton of Midol, the room was dim and I was in the fetal position with the most terrible cramps in the world. There was no doubt that within the past week, my PMS had taken my significant other for a true roller coaster ride in and out of Crazytown.…
