    Life was starting (and sort of looks like it still is trying) to get back to normal after months of world-wide quarantine and isolation. As we look out from the middle of the tunnel, many of us are starting to see the secondary and tertiary effects that stem from the worldwide pandemic. The...

    The new school year is inching ever so close to many us, but for many parents, the question still remains- should I let my kids go back to school, and honestly? Will that even be an option? For many schools across the nation, school will look nothing like it did before COVID-19. Some schools...

    Summer is in full swing, but this summer looks markedly different than any other summer before. As we continue to deal with the global pandemic and prepare for a second wave, many of us are still keeping our families away from other people as much as possible to slow the spread. So many of the...

    A new report from the Korean Centers For Disease Control and Prevention suggests that people who recovered from COVID-19 but test positive again for the SARS-CoV-2 are not being reinfected. This is good news, as it indicates that COVID-19 reinfection after recovering may not be a burning issue...

    In the past few months, opening myself up to life's simple joys has been absolutely mood-boosting. I don't know about you, but I've been on an emotional roller-coaster ride lately. Some days I feel energized about all of the silver linings I've found during the current pandemic, and other days...

    Moms are often seen as powerhouse multitaskers that can do everything at once. We cook dinner, finish a load of laundry, and help with homework all while nursing our baby. But any mom can tell you that trying to multitask is stressful. Add in a worldwide pandemic and our stress is through the...

    The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention has just added several symptoms to its list of existing symptoms for COVID-19, and they include chills, headache and muscle pain. As we continue to learn more and know more about the COVID-19 virus, the list of symptoms continues to grow. Today...

    Community-supported agriculture is more important than ever these days, as COVID-19 threatens the daily life and normalcies of just about everything--including food chain and supply. Just what is a CSA and why is now the best time ever to join one? Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a...

    It wasn't a complete shock when our schools closed because of COVID-19 just over three weeks ago. As the weeks dragged on I realized that this homeschooling thing might be a long-term situation, but I knew our family wouldn't be able to keep up with distance learning for the long-term. I do...

    COVID-19 has turned our world completely upside down. Life as we knew it has changed dramatically, and life going forward will probably never be the same. Although its a huge change for many parents, our children have been greatly affected by it, too. Your child may be exhibiting some anxiety...

    Last week, we told you about some hospitals in New York who were prohibiting birthing mothers from having a spouse/partner/birth coach with them as they labored and delivered. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo put a stop to that, though, saying no woman in any New York hospital will ever be forced...

    A New York mom's husband hid his COVID-19 symptoms from the hospital staff where she gave birth last week, and now the new mom is exhibiting symptoms of the virus as well. Mamas, let's be honest. THIS IS WHY WE CANNOT HAVE NICE THINGS. No, no woman should EVER be forced to give birth alone...

    Odds are, you're probably picking up more items and having more packages delivered to your door. Do you know how to protect yourself from packages during COVID-19 and the 'new normal?' That's what we're calling, right? A 'New Normal?' All this social distancing and mitigation and...

    Families around the country find their new normal during life in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although most of us are still able to be around family, take walks outside, and even visit the grocery store, those who are in a complete isolation, like those in nursing homes and in...

    Some lessons we learn the hard way. The really hard way. That's what I'm starting to feel about lessons from COVID-19. One of the hardest, but best so far I've learned is how to get away from my Work FOMO. Every morning I wake up well before the sun and my children wake up. I have a morning...

    Coronavirus is affecting every single person in one way or another. It is an unprecedented situation that seems apocalyptic in nature, and everyone is experiencing an extreme disruption in their lives. Fear has gripped the entire world, causing us to reflect on the lives we used to lead and...

    Let's just be real. You're probably wondering just what in the WORLD is going on with COVID-19, and more, what in the world should YOU do about it? We're with you, Mamas. This is uncharted territory. Not even in World Wars have we, as a WORLD, essentially just closed down for any period of...
