Once you’ve had your first child, the second baby conversation starts to happen… often.

You think about timing, age difference, and things like “is our home big enough?” or “can we really handle two kids?”

But let’s be honest: now that the hard part is over, you just wonder how in the world you can go through the first six months all over again (lack of sleep and raw nipples especially), but, at the same time, you don’t think it’s humanly…

Letter to My Clingy, Cranky, Teething Child

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.28.24 PM

knew I shouldn’t have gotten used to the great night sleep, perfect, clockwork naps, and how amazing you were doing with independent play the past few months… I knew that.

But I did… I sort of took it all for granted. That’s how well you were doing!

Until, of course, that nasty molar popped in a few months early.

This week has been rough on Mommy, you know. Between your ravenous appetite (most days you almost eat…

Why I Wasn’t Ready To Be a Mom

We were out in New York City with friends when we decided we were ready.A packed bar downtown, the kind of place you forget. We’d both had way too many nights like this one: too many watered down vodka sodas, nights spent shoving through the crowd, competing for the bartender’s attention.

This wasn’t the scene for us anymore, it was easy to see.

I don’t remember…

Fostering an Attitude of Gratitude in our Families

With the holidays approaching and Thanksgiving right around the corner, this is a great time to teach our children how to be thankful.  When I first became a parent, I thought my child would learn with ease how to not only say “thank you” but also be thankful.  Ahem…I have to say, it didn’t seem to come as easy as I thought it should.  When I began to hear myself repeating “Say, thank you” or “What do we say?” after someone would give my daughter a gift or do a nice act for her, 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…

How To Make More Time For Your Kids

There are a lot of parents who would think that a ride to school, or watching an hour of TV with their kids would count as “quality” time and would be enough.
