You got your child a cell phone. Congratulations! You’ve made a momentous decision that will impact multiple lives including those of individuals who you have never met. I’m sure it wasn’t an easy choice to make. It took a lot...
Phew, this summer was fast, furious, and fun! It came up quickly and was over in a flash, and it’s taken me the entire month of September to recover. My thinking, creative brain is mine again, however, I haven’t...
Sight. Touch. Sound. Taste. Smell.  Take a deep breath and imagine yourself at your happy place. Take in everything around you- the sights, the sounds, and the aroma. Think about how your body feels in your seat, if you’re sitting,...
I will never forget the words the doctor spoke while I was in labor and delivery with my daughter, before I’d even seen her myself: “She has tons of hair, and it’s so blonde!” After her first bath, it was...
I am one thousand percent team #FreeBritney. I have to admit, however, that something about the movement doesn’t sit right with me. If you’re not up on the news, the queen of 2000s pop, Britney Spears, is currently in a...

My husband and I are both artists and we really enjoy being creative with our daughter. Recently, we’ve had fun with some easy fall art projects. In my most recent post, I highlighted ways to approach making art with young...
A friend told me about a poem she recalls from her birth class. The gist of this poem is that your child takes his first steps away from you on the day he was born. My only child, a...
It’s World Breastfeeding Week and once again my social media feed is filled with photos of beautiful mothers nursing beautiful babies. If this makes your skin crawl with a range of hard-to-handle emotions, you’re not alone. I feel it...
