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!

Good Buy

We were cautioned by many that babies either love or hate swings. If it is the case that you buy a swing before the little one arrives, and he loves it: good buy. If he hates it: big waste of money....

We decided we would wait until Roscoe was born, then tow him to the store to get his opinion before purchase.

Six weeks later, while dreaming of having two working arms, I remembered that we had yet to pursue The Swing.

Last night Andy brought home this gem:

Today, I woke with Roscoe at 4:00 am. I nursed him, played with him, and as he was getting drowsy, I placed him in his new swing. For TWO HOURS he slept soundly.

I took full advantage and decided to bake my favorite cookies (6 of which I ate this afternoon, yum!), pump, and take a shower. Such a great start to the day!

Here's little Roscoe demonstrating the power of The Swing:

For those interested in the details, a link to a demo of the seat's many functions...wish they made one of these in my size.


  1. I am very happy to here that little Roscoe likes the swing since this is the one that we have. It is put together & is sitting in our living room just waiting for our LO!!

  2. YAY glad to hear that Roscoe loves his swing. Bella HATED hers, lol! I bet it felt great to get some "me" time too.

  3. WOW!! LOL 2 hours!! That must be NICE!! YAY! Glad he loves it!! It looks comfy and matches my lamb seat thing I got you guys!! CA-UTE!!

  4. I was looking at your blog and saw this post and thought "I almost forgot how small he used to be". Awwww ;-)
