Things Not to Say to a Doctor’s Wife.

I am a wife. It happens to be that the my husband is a doctor.I have very few close friends that are doctor wives, as well.

How To Be A Wife And Mom.

I've seen a lot of Facebook posts lately about women venting about their spouse or significant others not 'helping' around the house or not helping with the baby and then, becoming resentful towards each other. In my practice of self-care, it took years (8 years to be exact) to realize that resentment can build up… Continue reading How To Be A Wife And Mom.

Hello Coffee.

I now understand the phrase, "...but first, coffee." I was never a coffee drinker, nor a caffeine drinker in any case. My husband thinks that is really weird, given the nature of my profession, working nights, and have given birth to a baby. I run on no hours of sleep since and on no caffeine… Continue reading Hello Coffee.

It was my husband's 34th birthday coming up and I needed to do something well-deserved for him. He's been working 12 hour shifts for 10 days straight - the life of a doctor. And, he's amazing. After a long day at work, he still manages to give baby his bedtime bath, read a story to… Continue reading Husband’s First Birthday as a Dad.
