Veggie Burrito Bowl

Here’s a secret about me: I never eat vegetables. Not never never, but definitely not as much as I should. And that means neither does the rest of my family, since I prepare most of their meals. But now that a tiny human is dependent on my cooking for his nutrients (NO PRESSURE), I guess I need to get in gear and level-up in adulting. Level 5: Vegetables.

So when this recipe caught my eye on Pinterest (ya know, because it had the word “burrito” in it), I figured I should give it a try. I’ve tweaked it to make it a little simpler, because I don’t know anyone who has time to get fancy with things like “rinsing rice in a fine mesh sieve” (um, what?), and it’s since become one of our family favorites—husband even requests it sometimes, which is unheard of for something without any meat in it.

And best of all: this is a one-pan meal, AKA THE BEST KIND OF MEAL THERE IS.

My Infertility Journey: Why I Love My Baby More Than You Love Yours

This blog is served with a heavy helping of snark, which doesn’t always translate appropriately, so I want to be very clear: my baby is very, very loved. Like, obnoxiously so. He’s for sure going to be that overconfident jerk who thinks he can do no wrong when he’s older. (Sorry about that.)

Sure, I make fun of him occasionally (a lot). Yes, I complain about my exhaustion (if you’re not going to whine about how tired you are, are you even a parent?). And yes, I call him names like “monster” and “demon baby” sometimes (okay, almost all the time…). But hey, I bought and paid-in-full for his crazy ass; you better believe I’ve earned my right to a sarcastic comment every now and then.

You see, he was a long time in the making. Over two years, to be exact.

31 Thoughts Moms Have While Pumping

Ah, the breast pump. A nursing mom’s best friend and worst enemy. On one hand, it gives us the option to continue breastfeeding when we go back to work, or when baby struggles with his latch, or any of the multitude of reasons that could otherwise prevent a mom from nursing. But on the other hand, it sucks (…see what I did there?). It’s uncomfortable, it’s time consuming, and it downright messes with your mind at times. Between watching the ounces creep along in the collection bottles while simultaneously watching the minutes of your life tick by in solitude, the inner monologue can be confusing, to say the least.

PSA: Enjoy the “Golden Period”

A few months ago, a veteran dad pulled me aside to pass on some advice. “Oh, here we go,” I thought. “The ‘new mom’ sign on my forehead must be lit up, just begging for some unsolicited advice.” What I didn’t know was that he was actually about to give me the best advice I’ve gotten yet, and just in the knick of time.
