Popsicles and Baby Bumps

I may be on a low carb/sugar free diet, but I know a good popsicle when I see one (or read the recipe to one…)!

And the great thing about making your own popsicles is that it is almost effortless.
Just throw everything into your blender, puree, and freeze in molds. SO. EASY.

Here are some healthy and fresh alternatives to the options the ice cream man carries.
Some might even help a pregnant mama stave off morning sickness and pack in some extra vitamins and nutrients!

Part Of My Mom Philosophy

It’s hard to find your mom groove, sometimes.
There’s so much judgement around how you choose to parent your children.

If I’m being totally honest, I thought I’d be much different as a mom than I am turning out to be. I’m not as overbearing, over protective, or overly cautious. I’m huge on trial and error, and letting my son try to work things out for himself (as much as a one year old can, anyway).

When I came across this topic on my BG editor’s topic list, I knew I had to write the article. It’s pretty representative of who I am as a mom. YES, there still are times when I make decisions to the contrary, but for the most part, I’m a ‘who cares’ mama, and a damn proud one, too.

Are you part of the ‘who cares’ mom tribe, too??

Alternative Spelling For Classic Names

As a self-proclaimed ‘weird mom,’ I would totally love to give my children an interesting and out of the ordinary name. But since they’re (the one, for now) not only my children, husband gets a say, which means unique names are reserved for middle names. My son’s middle name is Anakin (Star Wars parents, much?!)

I tasked myself with finding cool alternative spellings for some classic names, and I actually really like some of them!

And thus became my latest BabyGaga article!

Kardashi-What? ‘K’ Names.

I know zero things about the Kardashians, other than they’re super loaded and the one who had a sex tape is married to Kanye. I never quite hopped on that celebrity train.

While this is just a simple name list, I wrote it trying to keep the Kardashians in mind. That aside, maybe it’s a personal bias, but I do love me a good ‘K’ name.

If you’re looking for a unique ‘K’ name, or just enjoy name lists, check out my latest BabyGaga piece!

Where Do You Get Your Baby Name Inspiration?

I know that when my husband and I started trying to conceive our first child back in 2015, I was already skimming baby name websites before the end of our first cycle.

For a girl (yet to be had) I know that I want a name that is strong but delicate, and has a great meaning.

While writing another baby name list article, I found some inspiration for sweet and romantic baby girl names that I will have to consider using when the time comes!

I’ve been learning a lot on my journey as a freelance writer. Some information pertaining to motherhood and pregnancy, and some information that’s just good for life and health.

Did you know that Vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption and Vitamin C helps with iron absorption?! Yeah, me neither! LOL
