This week’s installment of You Know You’re a Mom comes to us from Jessica Bouzianis. Jessica moms it up every day with her 16 month old, Grace, all the while taking good care of that bun in the oven. Because of Steven’s job, Jessica and her family seem to find themselves in motion most of the time, and this keeps her on her tiptoes, listening in to heaven to see what might be next for them.

Jessica and I met a few years ago, introduced by a mutual friend. Over the years we found a million obscure lilly pads of commonhood: our unconventional roles with our husbands, our semi-hippie lifestyle choices, and at last, our natural births. Jessica turned me on to natural birth about 5 months into my pregnancy after I watched “The Business of Being Born”. After crying my way through the film, I was hooked. No epidural for me.
Since then, Jessica and I have ventured through motherhood together, through text, email and Skype – and when we can, in person. Here are a couple shots of our littles enjoying each other’s company. Well, it gets better.

Jessica had so many “You Know You’re a Mom” moments, but here are a few. There are hilarious…because they’re so true.

Thank you so much for sharing these universal mommy moments with us, Jessica. Love these. Hope to hear from you again soon when you can talk about being a mommy of two. 🙂
