Transitioning Mom: Where is my Epidural Now?

They warn you about the pain of childbirth. They even express all the different means for managing said pain and in such depth that there are literally tons of books written on the topic! Ways to manage the pain often include Lamaze, water therapy, epidural, hypnosis, etc. I opted for hypnosis when this little lady graced us with her presence.…

Whatever the journey, the beauty is in the baby.

I love the photo on the top-left and what it stands for.

It's gone viral and for good reason. After reading the article that was associated with it I couldn’t help be compelled to write my two cents worth. I’m part of a number of virtual community groups in my area and the first time I…

My Birth Story

A run to CVS to pick up Marlboro Reds and a pregnancy test. Yes, that's how it all started. I couldn't believe my eyes. Sitting in the toilet, starring at that faint pink line. It was so terrifying. It was unplanned, unexpected and I had no idea if I was ready. But really, who is ever ready…

Having a baby with an IUD on the side

During my first follow-up appointment after having my son, my OB/GYN looked at me and asked, "Do you want another baby right away?"

"Ummm...can I just enjoy this one for a bit first?" I asked.…

Having two too close together

I know someone who had her children in quick succession. For four years of her life, she was either pregnant or had just given birth and was breastfeeding. She is a happy mom of three children today, and she doesn't regret her decision to have her children be so close in age.…

The cost of family planning

Well-meaning friends and family members always have questions. When you start dating someone for a while, they want to know when you are getting married. When you get married, they want to know when you are going to have a baby. When you have a baby, they want to know if you are going to have another baby. (And, if several years go by, they really want to know if you are going to have another baby. If you hedge at all, they are…

I'm supposed to be the funny one

A few weeks ago at lunch, my coworker and I played a game of "we can guess your birth order" with the rest of our team.

At its basic level, birth order predicts that the first born will be extremely mature and a high-level achiever; middle children will be extremely diplomatic; and the last born children…

Are YOU Done Having Babies?

As I organize my older son’s closet, I am finding the most precious of memories in the form of pictures, school projects and love notes.  Last night, we all sat on the floor and looked through it all, which made me teary eyed.  Even my kids said they felt emotional.  My oldest commented, “those were good times mom…good times”.…

Why he'll always be my baby

"I'm not a baby. I'm a little boy," says my son. Often. And he is right. He is growing up so quickly (seriously...who knew time traveled this fast?). And he has every right to remind me that he is more boy than baby.

I may think of him as my "baby boy" often, but evidently, it's not entirely my fault.…

Is society controlling your life?

After getting the kiddos situation in the kitchen with an art project this morning I set off for the family room to fold clothes. Exciting I know!  While folding I turned on the TV and quickly found myself being pulled into a talk show. The topic was unconventional marriages.  The host was interviewing a traditional Orthodox Jewish marriage.  First I found it ironic that the topic was unconventional marriages and the couple was in a traditional marriage. My second thought was, when…

Dad’s Guide to Packing Hospital Bag for the Birth of Your Baby

Dad if you plan on staying at the hospital after your baby is born, you will need to pack a bag for your stay so that you don’t have to run back and forth from the hospital.  Of course, if you forget anything you have the luxury of going back home and grabbing items that you forgot (including items that your wife or significant other might have forgotten).  The laboring…

The day I met my second daughter


I spent the whole month of December praying that Baby S would be late. I was dreading the newborn stage. Plus, we did not know her name at this point (I wanted Scarlet, Eric wanted Fiona, neither of us liked each other's favorite name [I did not want my daughter's name to invoke the image of Shrek!! Like anyone would really think of stunning Fiona from…
