Managing The Impossible

So I went back to work. After four and a half months home with my baby, I returned to the classroom to teach Kindergarten. Despite all my fears about leaving her and taking on yet another challenge, I did it. To quote Tina Fey: “You go through big chunks of time where you’re just thinking, […] Read more…

Cora’s 5 Month Update

I used to see preschool graduation photos and think, “good grief, it’s only preschool. Let’s move on already.” I know, that’s insensitive. I’m sorry, really. Now I finally know the way time just slips through your fingertips like sand in the most beautiful and sad way. Every moment is worth trying to cherish. I get it […] Read more…

I Said I’d Never, Ever Do An MLM

I can almost hear the groans from through my computer or cell phone screen any time I mention to someone that I’m a consultant. For good reason, the multi-level marketing retail model can often make people shudder. It’s a stigma that has steered me away from companies both as a consumer and as a possible […] Read more…

Feel The Fear. Do It Anyway.

This weekend, I made the decision to attend Beautycounter’s Annual Leadership Summit in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I did not think Minnesota was going to be my first travel destination post-baby.

What’s In A Name?

Since I announced this blog, a lot of people have questioned the name. How did I come up with it? Who’s grounded? Who’s grounding you? Is Cora grounded? How are you staying grounded? And so on. Well, I have all the answers for you! Just kidding I have about zero answers to anything at all, […] Read more…

The Start Of Something New

So, I’ve officially started a blog. This might be the scariest thing I’ve ever done. Well, other than birthing a child. Other people are going to read this? The thought alone makes my cheeks burn and my palms sweat (or is that the hormones?). So why am I doing this; putting myself out there for […] Read more…

Riding The Postpartum Rollercoaster

I’m not sure why I wasn’t more prepared for it. I mean, every doctor I saw leading up to delivery told me that it was normal to get the baby blues. Any friend that had recently had a baby told me the same thing. Family made sure to remind me, too. My life was about to […] Read more…
