Oliver’s Birth Story Since even before our little guy was born, people have been asking me: “Will you share your birth story?!” I know how much I love reading people’s birth stories, and subsequently usually would sob (once while watching a video folding laundry in our closet) at all the details.

There are a lot of phrases about mothers. First comes to mind: “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy…” Fortunately, I have a pretty awesome mama, which led to a pretty happy household growing up. I still to this day don’t quite know how the heck she managed it all… and as I get closer […]
