Pampers Swaddlers Honors Nurses with #ThankYouNurses Awards

Pampers_Logo_Teal

Nursing isn’t just any career, or a routine way to make a living. It’s a profession that takes a certain type of passionate and caring person. Nursing feels more like it is an art form that requires devotion, dedication and a strong sense of compassion. Being a nurse often means putting others before yourself and often being away from your family to care for someone else’s.  Most nurses can say that they have missed countless holidays and family moments over the years. Despite all this, we, as nurses, don’t go to work looking for recognition or praise. We go to work every day […]

It’s a Merry Merry Baby’s First Christmas!

court

I can’t believe my Marcus is turning 6 years old in just a few days! It seems like just yesterday I was telling myself I wasn’t in labor because it was simply too early.  I even managed to sit and breath through breakfast with my daughter and husband before asking to be dropped off at the hospital just to be checked out.  I remember being so sure that they would just watch me for a few hours and then send me on home. At exactly 36 weeks he decided to make an earlier arrival and what an entrance he made! […]

As a nurse, who washes her hands multiple times a day, I have tried many brands of many moisturizers in attempt to keep my hands from becoming cracked and dry.

My UltraShape Story – Part 2: First Impressions

IMG_0301

If you haven’t read Part I : http://momconfessionals.com/2015/06/skinny-fat-ultrashape-ultrayou/ Before I started my treatment I got a chance to sit down with Dr. Marina Peredo of Skinfluence where I am getting my treatments.  First of all, she’s gorgeous and if you’re going to take skincare advice from anyone, let it be someone you’d want to look like too. If you had to go by looks, I’d say we were in good hands but she’s got the creds to boot too.  In addition to being a board certified Dermatologist, she is also an Associate Clinical Professor at Mount Sinai training physicians on various skincare techniques […]

Call Me Mom BUD (Baby Under Development)!

8F5CD7F5-EE59-410C-874A-44A90FA2D742

One of my dearest friends just found out she is pregnant for the very first time. I am so excited for her to embark on this journey to parenthood.  Just like any first time parent, she’s incredibly nervous and excited at the same time. She shared her news almost immediately, just shy of 5 weeks into it and I silently wished she hadn’t so soon as all the painful memories of my losses came rushing back to me. I know too much. I had to remind myself of the excitement I felt when Vin and I first found out we […]

Chic Moms, Welcome to New York’s Séraphine Maternity!

seraphine

At 20 weeks I had the pleasure of being invited to the Grand Opening of Séraphine at their newest location. Welcome to New York Séraphine! As a first time mom-to-be, I gave no thought really to what I would do for maternity clothing. My whole life I’ve been told “you’re so skinny” and for the majority of the pregnancy “you’re so small”, but I grew to know this thing called comfort in the short stint of being pregnant. I always wore my clothes very tailored prior to pregnancy so the time between me switching from those pants and jeans to […]
