She wouldn’t be using one… I mean, I didn’t want her using one, but… well, we ended up needing to.” Almost apologetic, my friend prefaced putting the pacifier in her child’s mouth, giving us the full disclaimer to […]

Read a Book Day

“Read a book!” It’s a constant refrain in our household. My three-year olds’ clamor for books to be read to them all day long. They can sit through a stack of books the way other kids can sit through entire movies. My youngest, now a year and a half, surprised us all at 10 months […]

Why I Needed a Parenting Coach

I’ve always known that parenting was going to be hard. Seasoned parents are often quick to point out this reality with new parents.

Why “Good Enough” Is My Motherhood Mantra

As every mom knows, the pressures of motherhood are endless. You’re surrounded by opinions on how to do everything right. Internet forums, bestselling books and seemingly everyone you talk to all have strong (yet conflicting) voices about what’s best. The result: Everything you do seems wrong.

Family Trips: Adventure Ahead

Adventure is an understatement when it comes to family trips. Whether you are driving cross-country, flying to your destination, or arriving by any other method, bringing a family along is ALWAYS unpredictable. I am no expert on family trips, but I do have an honorary degree in changed plans and missed expectations. This I know […]

Motherhood: A Thankless Job… Until Now
