In addition to dog training, Melissa kept up a couple of blogs regarding her adventures as a new parent.
Didn’t Expect That: Unexpected Things While Pregnant is a funny take on pregnancy. Melissa decided a traditional baby book wasn’t for her as it didn’t have places to put the “WTF? They make this?!?” that expecting moms are exposed to on a daily basis.
Letters To Little is Melissa’s writing to her daughter, starting with a (very dated) welcome-to-the-world post to her daughter, Aislyn which can be read here. Be warned – there is quite a bit of poo, but is mostly silly things her daughter has blurted out at dinner.
