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!

Feeling behind

I realized last week that I have only until mid-February to finish all the requirements needed to complete my Bradley Birth certification. November feels like it was only a few weeks ago, where has the time gone?

With Andy in California all week, I'm taking advantage of the lonely nights and instead of blogging or doing anything else, really, I've been reading and outlining the required books (three down so far!).

Still, I have what feels like a long list of unfinished items to complete in the next month, including to:
  • Attend one more La Leche League meeting, and write a report on my experience
  • Attend one Bradley class
  • Read the final book: Husband Coached Childbirth: The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth
  • Write a book report and identify 20 questions with answers for each of the four required readings
  • Compile a comprehensive binder of local resources for expectant and new parents
  • Interview two local hospitals on their labor and birth policies, and procedures
Think it can be done?

With my job winding down (and last minute projects ramping up), a new work schedule and a new nanny starting next week, and 'round the clock mothering, it's been a challenge to balance my and Roscoe's needs over the past two weeks. Roscoe's been in bed by 8:00 and out of necessity (early rises, and no naps) I've been asleep by 10:00. Two hours a day isn't a lot of time to do much of anything, so I've had to prioritize.

I can tell that the days and weeks left between now and the time that Little Sears is born will be jam packed with necessary to-dos and a lot of well intentioned effort to accomplish all the other things that will help us to feel prepared for the baby's arrival--because we now know that for at least the first few months I won't be doing much more than nursing, and kid tending.

  1. That is quite a to-do list! I don't know how you have the energy...or motivation. But it will certainly make the next couple of months FLY by! Before you know it, the new baby will be here!
