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!

Roscoe's Turn

After so much attention on Little Sears this week, Roscoe had his 15 month appointment this afternoon--even though he just turned 16 months.

We arrived early and played outside in the (hot) sunshine for 20 minutes. Then on our way inside Roscoe tripped and cut his lip so we made a grand, bleeding entrance. After stickers and snacks he was feeling much better but his little wound continued to bleed for most of the visit.

We got to see yet another nurse practitioner that I did not care for. Do any other moms nursing toddlers get the side eye when breastfeeding is brought up? I do not get it. Otherwise, Roscoe got his vaccinations, and a flu shot--and they gave me mine too, which was convenient!

He's now in the 43rd percentile for weight, and 11th percentile for height. Little Shorty!!


  1. You mean they think it's weird that you're still breastfeeding? For real? Our pediatrician is super supportive that we're still breastfeeding, he always comments that it makes them "lean, mean fighting machines." I love it! Sorry to hear you have an icky N.P.

  2. I never nursed into toddlerhood but my pediatrician is super supportive of breastfeeding.

    Although at Miguel's first DOC band helmet, one of the NPs was weirded out when she walked into the room and I was nursing Miguel.

  3. I find it sad that they think that it would be strange. I can't speak from experience obviously but throughout most of the world breastfeeding through the age of two is completely acceptable and even the norm. I have to wonder, WHY it is so different here?

  4. Boo! Have you requested continuous care with Dr. C? He has been supportive thus far. I am upset at the nurse practitioner too :( Lillian confiscated one of Roscoe's toy cars so we need to return it to you!!! :) I hope his lip is OK! Hugs
