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!

Just an observation

As I entered the metro yesterday, all big and pregnant, a man actually offered me his seat. He saw me, noticed that I was pregnant, and said, "Would you like to sit down?".

This is news because over the past 9 months I have made the following observations:

1. Women are more likely than men to offer their seat to a pregnant lady
2. Women are more likely than men to assert that someone else get out of their seat in order to offer it to a pregnant lady
3. Men are more likely than women to occupy themselves intently with their reading material when a pregnant lady's belly is staring them in the face
4. In general, people are more likely to offer up their seat when they are getting off at the next stop.



  1. LOL, I observed the same things when I was pregnant. Gotta love people!!

  2. That is weird!! I guess women understand and men are really just oblivious!! I would have thought it would be the other way around though! WEIRD!!

  3. "Hey, lady. You're the one who chose to get pregnant. It ain't my problem!" LOL! Naw, I'd offer you my seat, Jacqueline--even if I was really engrossed in a great book or crossword or Sudoku. Sometimes I shut my weary eyes and don't see that someone needs a seat, though, in which case I'd be glad if they asked. ;-)

  4. Always the gentleman, Adrian! :) There is another side to all of this--that pregnant women expect everyone to read our minds [cause we want to sit!!!], and instead of asking, we!
