Some of my favorite mama bloggers and I are back with another round of mom talk! The topic this month? Sleep. You don't realize before you have a child how much of your life will revolve around their sleep. For those first few months, it was all about if she napped or didn't or how "put down" went.

I've spent years trying to figure out how to combat the dark circles that live under my eyes. As someone who doesn't sleep well, they're pretty much a constant in my life. In fact, I used to never take photos without sunglasses because I was so self-conscious about my undereye bags. The fact that I'm sharing a selfie that I took last night with no sunglasses is not something I ever thought I would do.
Break a Bad Habit Recap
Last month's wellness challenge was a tough one for me. The challenge was to break a bad habit, and my habit was biting my hangnails, something I hate that I've never been able to beat. I found that setting the intention to really focus on it for a month helped a lot.
I don't think that any new parent can possibly anticipate all of the gear that comes along with having a child. You think you know... But then double that. I expected a lot of the baby things and registered for many of them but I apparently didn't think hard about the fact that with every age and stage, there is a whole new slew of products that make life easier.
I love grocery shopping, and I always have. There is something about walking down the organized aisles of food that feels almost meditative for me. But if I go in without a plan of action, I get stressed out and/or end up buying way more than I need. If I go in hungry? Forget it.
As adults, we're all forced to be regular grocery shoppers (unless you are an order-in-aholic), and this is my professional strategy for keeping things in order during my favorite weekly errand.
