Keeping Gratitude on the Table

Before we eat dinner, my husband and I share something we’re grateful for. It’s a tradition we started shortly after we were married and decided to have dinner at the table instead of in front of the television like we’d done for years. Occasionally, it’s a big thing like, “I’m grateful the tests came back […]

Stuck in the Middle: Diastasis Recti and How I Fixed It

I have a confession to make: I was totally unprepared for this motherhood gig. I’m not talking about Moby wraps or Nose Friedas. I’m getting even more personal, mamas.  I’m talking about the war that raged between my pre-pregnancy and postpartum bodies. It was hardcore, and to be quite honest, it made me feel like crap for […]

Mom Amnesia

Y’all, Mom Amnesia is totally a thing. My husband (he’s a doctor, so he went to medial school and “knows things”) claims it’s not a real disease. But it totally is. If you have any of the following symptoms (although this list is not exclusive), you too may have Mom Amnesia: Forgetting why you called […]

The Guilt of a Working Mom

You clung to my neck, grasping tightly and sobbing. You didn’t want to let go, didn’t want to go over that threshold into the nursery filled with friends and fun. It’s ok – I didn’t want to let go either. We’d had another amazingly fun weekend together. We played, we sang, we snuggled. Monday morning […]

How I Found Myself Through Bellydancing

I didn’t really start dancing until my thirties.  I come from a musical family, but not a dancing one.  I had little to no exposure to dancing besides church choir choreography (which we all know was not helpful) until I was in middle school, and by that point, regular school dances were in full swing.

The Last Baby Crady Schneider Memphis Moms Blog

The Last Baby

When I was young, I imagined what my family would be like. I thought I would have two children: one boy and one girl (Obviously). Their names would be Cooper and Semmes, both family names that I’ve loved since I was a teenager. It was going to be perfect. And then real life happened. My […]

After sharing that perspective on our social media, we knew it was only appropriate for us to also share the other side of the discussion with our readers.

I Have To Dream

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” ― Martin Luther King Jr. As a child learning about the great Dr. Martin Luther King was required. As it […]

My Kids Have Rights, Too

Picture this: It’s a beautiful bright sunny day in August. It’s hotter than Hades out because we live in the mid-south. I’ve dragged my children into the car and out of it more than a few times. We’re all a bit sweaty and flustered. As we are leaving Target my oldest daughter, Evie, looks up […]
