BOSS LADY Jessica, and her kids Zoe, and Ezra

Jessica Youngsma

Where do you live:
Redlands, CA

Child(s) Name & Age(s):
Zoe Jaimes 18 months (9/23/08)
Ezra Phoenix 4 weeks (3/16/10)

Whats your favorite thing about bein a mom?:
Observing. You can learn so much about yourself and who you are as a mom and as a person by observing your children. What they do and how they interact is a direct reflection to what environment you are providing them. (Except when it comes to the terrible 2's, cause really, you probably don't throw your body on the floor when you are out of bananas...)

Whats your least favorite thing about being a mom?:
Post-partum depression. It ruins your confidence about being a mother.

Tell us something unique about you:
I can breastfeed, change a toddler diaper and watch Maury all at the same time. This is a newfound talent.

Tell us why your kid is the
Zoe is the coolest kid I know. She's a performer. A true comedian and dramatic actress all wrapped up in one.
Ezra, so far, just sleeps, eats and shits which is cool, cause he doesn't give me any grief... Just engorgement.

One of your favorite "remedies/ or tricks of the trade"(for gas, teething,sleep,ANYTHING):
Cry out loud. Its not all rainbows and sunfuzzies whens it comes to motherhood. Zoe had colic for 6 months straight, I had PPD and it sucked. When I cried, I cried hard. Don't bottle it up, cause you will become crazy. My suggestion is; when you've had a rough day put the kids down (somewhere safe, of course) go to your room, grab a pillow and scream as hard and as loud as you can into that pillow. Allow yourself 10 minutes of uncontrollable crying, then wipe your tears and proceed with your day. It feels so freeing. Hell, I did it the other day and felt 1000x better.

To my Dearest Pella James....

A tattoo to symbolize how you are my little babushka doll!
and I love you more then words can say, or money could buy!

When I leave to go potty, I will come back!
When I shake and heat your bottle, I couldn't do it fast enough as you sit there SCREAMING as if I haven't fed you in days.
When I have to Force you to nap, and as relentless as you are with going down with a fight, I promise you ...You will wake up happy, and one day you will be BEGGING to take a nap, its just years from now unfortunately.
When you scream and push and strain to work a poop out and I lay you down and pump your legs, I put every ounce of positive energy into it, that YOU WILL POOP!

Hey! This is Allie from It's a Wonderful Life. I love your "Featured Boss Lady" idea and have filled out the survey below...Hope this helps! Thanks!

Name: Allie

Where do you live:Georgia

Child(s) Name & Age(s): Henry, 2 1/2months (born January 19th. 2010)

Whats your favorite thing about bein a mom?: I love knowing that he needs me more than anybody right now. I love watching him grow and get a kick out of making him smile.

Whats your least favorite thing about being a mom?: Having to plan everything I do around his schedule. I've had to put a ton of the things I like to do on least for a while.

Tell us something unique about you: I grew up on a family farm on an island in Washington state. We raised our own meat and grew our own vegetables. I come from a huge family of seven...Don't know how my mom handled five kids, I can barely handle my one sometimes.

Tell us why your kid is the H is awesome because he's so easy going and has made our first baby experience so wonderful and easy! Also, he just got this kick ass pair of baby sunglasses...Ooooh man.

One of your favorite "remedies/ or tricks of the trade"(for gas, teething,sleep,ANYTHING): We've recently discovered that if H has gas, sitting him up (facing outward) on our laps (like a "big boy") and patting his belly usually makes him poop. When he cries, we cry with him and he usually gets so confused that he stops and starts laughing! Also, SWINGS. Those things will save your life.

My Birthday in a Nutshell

Went to opening day of the dodger game!
managed to wake up with a sore throat, said EFF IT! im going to the game anyways!
My car over heated 2 miles from Dodger stadium!!! which mind you is a 2009! So I parked the bitch, locked her up and made the 2 mile walk, we made it just in time, even ran across Rhianna on the way into the park, kinda cool I guess. Game was awesome, Dodgers WON!
made it back to my car which thank the lord was still there, untouched! and put a gallon of water in that beast and made the trek home!!! It was smooth sailing!
So with some minor obstacles and this ANNOYING sore throat my day was good!

10 weeks old today! I love her :)

Happy Birthday to me!

Im 25 years of age today!
Lets hope 25 has some good times, and good luck in store for me, because let me tell you, 24 years old was the WORST year of my life! Im ready to move forward and live my life to the fullest. Ive been held under water for too long, always hoping things could be different, trying to make things work out...but I cant do that anymore...I vowed to myself I will roll with the punches, take the heat, and be the better person, I didnt ask or what to raise a baby Single. But it is what it is...and 25 let there be fuckin LIGHT!

Cloth Diapering DAY 1

I just realized "Oh my god!, duh I have all those cloth diapers, and she may fit in them now..."
so I tried it on her and we are good to go!
So let the cloth diapering begin!
Day 1
She already had a bowel movement in one, I literally wiped out the poop and tossed it in the wet bag!

I am using Rumparooz one size cloth diapers with the velcro rather then the snaps, I will post updates on how its going, pros, and cons

words of Wisdom!

saw this on another blog that I read...and its sooo true. and such powerful words to live by!

Today Peej got her 2 month shots :(
she handled it like a champ! screamed only until I picked her up and cuddled her
She weighs 9lbs 7oz and is 22.5" long
shes such a tiny little Peej! but to me she getting BIG!
The Dr. has me putting her on Nutramigin formula mixed with her similac for her gassy/fussy/constipation. So hopefully it helps, minus how much that formula costs!!! what a RIP OFF!

Easter was a doozy, but non the less was her First Easter and she was loved by many!
heres a few of my favorite pics of her from this week!

Pela is a band that I love, and I just thought Pella sounds cute and looks also means "Rock" in greek
