I remember when I was at my first real job out of college. My co-worker I shared an office with got pregnant and she would be so tired she started to take power naps to make it through the day. Now I’ve always been a lover of naps since I was a kid so napping as an adult made sense to me. But I had no idea what the phenomenon of a power nap was until I hit adulthood and I didn’t get the necessity of them until my first pregnancy.

I was 11 when I first got my period. I still remember it to this day. I must have read “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.” at least a dozen times in preparation for my big day. I’d read some book that talks about how different cultures celebrate puberty and periods with young girls so when it happened, I knew what it was.

When it comes to doing what’s best for your health, waistline, and planet, you shouldn’t have to decide what’s more important. In truth, all of these things are pretty high on the totem pole of importance for me which is why I love the premise behind OMD: Change The World By Changing One Meal A Day. Written by Suzy Amis Cameron, OMD gives an easy to digest way of diving into the plant-based diet.

Confession: This is the busiest time of the year that I’ve yet to experience with my children. Mini is preparing for her first Nutcracker performance AND robotics competition all happening the same weekend. Abc is, well, a four-year-old. And BC is an inquisitive 1-year-old who is trying to get into all the things. We’ve been experiencing late nights, full days, and lots of running around. Oh, did I mention that my husband happened to get called out of town for work giving me a week’s notice to figure out how to manage all this plus work and keeping kids healthy?

Mud butt. It’s more officially known as diarrhea but in my household we’ve given it the lovely nickname of mud butt for the obvious reasons. It feels like it was just yesterday that I dealt with our first bout of terrible diarrhea with Mini.
