Making It Through the Breastfeeding Blues

I chose to breastfeed my daughter – and I’m so glad I did. We had a truly amazing experience, one that I would not trade for anything. Now… before you start hating on me, thinking that I’m gloating, making assumptions about my journey, know that it was not easy. Not at all. I was not […]

On Raising a Spitfire

  Spitfire [spit-fahyuh r] noun A person, especially a girl or woman, who is of fiery temper and easily provoked to outbursts.   Last month my husband was a guest writer and defined the word “plan.” Which is now ironic, because I started this blog post a few months ago and for various reasons had […]

No, My Husband Doesn’t Need a Boy

There’s a question every mom or dad of two girls is asked at least once per week. Strangers, family, friends, doctors, co-workers, people you’ve just met, parents of friends, friends of parents, zoo workers, mail people, the little old lady at Target–you get the drift–they all seem to have one burning question.

Lori Parish Memphis Moms Blog introduction

Welcome! Lori Parish

Hi! As I sit here after bathing, reading to, and tucking in 4 little kiddos, folding mass amounts of laundry, packing lunches, checking homework, putting away previously mentioned laundry and doing ALL THE THINGS,  I’m finding it hard to write about myself.
