Grandparents:: The Most Important Members of Our Tribe

There is so much talk about how important your “tribe” is today. Don’t get me wrong, finding supportive friends is amazing, helpful, and definitely needed. However, the most critical part of my family’s tribe are our Grandparents. I’m not sure that we would have made it through the early years without them. Actually, that’s not […]

The Extras When You’re a Preemie Mom

I’ve been a preemie mom for over 6 years now. As with any aspect of motherhood, it’s something that lasts your whole life. Things don’t just go back to “normal” once your baby comes home from the hospital. You live a new normal that includes a lot of “extras” that I didn’t experience with my […]

Identical or Fraternal? :: The Great Twin Debate

As any new parent can attest, taking an adorable mini-human into public is basically making yourself a magnet for questions and comments: “Awww! How old is she?” “Is he a good sleeper?” “Look at all that hair!!” Take twins (or triplets, I’m sure!) into public and you may as well schedule in an additional 20 minutes […]

Meet Heather

You’d think that after 33 years experience, I would kind of have this life thing figured out. Oh, you know… all the “stuff”; how to bake a chocolate chip cookie that is neither burnt nor mushy, how to have a conversation with a stranger without coming across as aloof or desperate for adult conversation, how to be […]
