Well this is a controversial topic isn’t it? I honestly didn’t know just how strongly people felt about this until about a year ago when we were trying to decide what to do for our son. It seems as though there is no “grey area” when it comes to circumcision; people believe strongly one way or the other, they are either for or against. They are passionate in their convictions and conversations regarding circumcision can get quite heated very quickly if two people happen to
Things new mamas need to know (that they won't tell you!)
Your bladder is going to be in seriously bad shape…if that baby comes out your vag…don’t be hard on yourself about it. It’s going to happen. Two days after I had my daughter my husband starting recounting my birth stories and was taking some liberties with the materials. Well it was funny shit and I realized my bladder was a fucking mess when a 2 foot perimeter was saturated in piss and there was not a damn thing I could do about it…except grab for my newborn daughters spare
Recipe: Roasted Roots Buddha Bowls
This is such an easy, delicious, and healthy recipe that can be enjoyed warm or cold. I make a huge batch and eat it for lunch for a few days. I adapted this recipe from from my new Yum & Yummer cookbook (Beets & Sweets Buddha Bowls). Seriously, this is an amazing book. The best part? Each and every delicious recipe has a picture (so you know what you’re making), and a 1-minute online video. (Note: Bad Moms Canada is not paid to promote this book…it’s just one of my fav
5 random new mom thoughts
How did my Mom do it?! I don’t know about you, but I immediately felt a stronger bond and appreciation for my Mom when I became a Mom. I’ve always appreciated my Mom, but this was different. This was more like, “How the F did you do this? And then, how the F did you do this two more times?!”. True love, baby, that’s how. That, and survival mode. My Mom didn’t have a car when I was a baby, let alone the Internet, online support groups, a cell phone, strollercize classes,
My advice (for what it's worth)
My heart goes out to all of the new mamas in today’s world. Thanks to technology, there is just so much information readily available to expectant and new mothers and it all feels like it’s just too much. On one hand, the power of technology is great because we can all be more aware and more educated and are better able to self-advocate, but on the other hand, it can become an information overload. Everywhere you look you are bombarded with “how to”s and “what not to do’s”
The space between
This must be what happens at the end of all pregnancies, although I don't remember feeling quite so strongly about it when I was pregnant with C. I'm talking about the point in time where you are becoming so pregnant and uncomfortable that you just want the baby out! The thought of being pregnant and uncomfortable for too much longer is the only way that women actually want to get the baby out – it’s as though birthing is a better alternative than continuing to be pregnant fo
"One is like none, two is like ten"
Mamas! You all know this saying right? Or another one that goes along with it: "you don't know until you know"? I was completely unprepared, as even the most prepared and wise women often are, when I had my first baby. Unprepared for what true sleep deprivation is like (not the kind where you pull an all nighter studying or partying but the kind that rages on through years and years), unprepared to completely give myself up in order to keep another human alive, unprepared for
Online shopping for the win!
I’ll admit it. I love online shopping. It’s something I do for almost everything: clothes, beauty products, cookbooks, and some specialty/hard to find items that aren’t available where I live. The options are endless, and many companies offer free shipping and free returns. I can’t remember the last time I went shopping in a store/mall. I much prefer seeing all the options online and avoiding the crowds. What I didn’t think of until recently was ordering baby supplies on
A very wise person once said: ”Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere….write that down.” When baby No.2 was about 8 weeks old and we were 8 weeks into the nightmare that was his infancy as is well documented on this blog, I was thrilled when a relative volunteered to pull a night shift for me. Hubs was out of town and having experienced children with colic, this aunt was more than sympathetic to our plight. I was so thri
Bad Moms Resume
I’ve been thinking about the idea of a Bad Mom Resumé for a while now; since I recently updated my work resumé, the timing was perfect! Enjoy this fun little visual of some of the things that any Bad Mom could include. xo Leigh #BadMomLeigh #momming #parentinghumor #parentingwin #childbirth #newborn #postpartum #humor #motherhood
