The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Up again at 3 in the morning...

No rest for an already weary Jacqueline.

The nighttime pee breaks began only days after conceiving our little babe--as many as 6 a night (and I'm not kidding). This was one of my first clues that our efforts had paid off! Two months later, after my kidneys acclimated to managing all the extra fluid, my nightly pee routine was replaced by torment of a different kind: rising for the day at 5am.

Most recently, it's the hours between 3:30 and 6:00 that I am wide awake, which makes for a loooong tedious day of commuting, working, and gyming.

During this highly productive time, you can find me:
a) In bed, surfing the internet (sorry Andy)
b) Rummaging around in the nursery (smelling tiny baby diapers, baby lotions, and powders; rocking in the leather rocker; folding and refolding baby clothes; perfecting my swaddling technique; or playing with baby toys)
c) In the kitchen sampling food and concocting delicious snacks.

Each trimester has brought a new kind of sleep deprivation that will not be missed post pregnancy. As I type, I realize the irony in that statement.

Update: I'm taking a "personal leave" day from work which suddenly makes me feel soo much better!
