2018 was another great year for the Columbia SC Moms Blog! We are so thankful to all you, our readers, who were right there with us as we shared stories about our families, highlighted all the fun things to...
Weight. “That’s a heavy subject.” Sorry – I couldn’t resist the bad joke. It’s what I do when I’m not sure what to do. I have always struggled with my weight. I was overweight as a child and didn’t exercise,...
It started with a fever. Our three year old woke up from his nap, cranky and hot. He had been unusually tired that day, but our thermometer readings of his temperature varied from normal to low-grade fever. We let him...
I have an awesome gift, perhaps it’s a talent, of motivating others. It’s partly why I am a therapist. I think it’s one of the reasons I am a good mother. The season my family and I are in...
I’m doing it, I’m actually doing it. I’m sitting in a comfy chair in my favorite coffee shop, on a weekday morning. I’m streaming Pandora through my ear buds and I’m sipping coffee and writing. All these things give...
In today's day and age, health insurance is more important than ever - especially when you become a parent. We all want the very best for our families, ensuring they are healthy and happy and have access to the...

Have you drank the Whole30 Kool-Aid yet (with no added sugar, of course)? If you have no clue what I’m talking about, let me introduce you. Meet the Whole30. A 30 day eating challenge that restricts many major food...
I've given birth to three beautiful children - a boy and two girls. My first two definitely fit the "wild child" description - full of life, energy, and love (especially the energy). They have very colorful personalities that I love...
I have a story to tell. I once heard about this woman. They said she had an air about her, that she was confident, fierce, and one of the most caring people one could meet. Some said she was...
