I used to be a Martyrmom. Veiled as camaraderie, women perpetuate the idea everyday that it is funny to survive only on coffee and wine. Never mind the fact that it normalizes addiction as a method for surviving motherhood, can we examine that women only feel comfortable joking about their self-sacrifice rather than bringing awareness Read More
First, let’s remember that for over twenty years, I made a profession out of telling other people’s children what to do, so I have very few reservations when being assertive with my own children. In an attempt to make our house a place where people can feel (and express) their feelings and also a place Read More
New moons are for wishes. Full moons are for goodbyes. The full moon loves best to take worries we no longer want to hold in our heads or our hearts. Whisper your worry into your hands and toss it up to the moon, saying, “Goodbye little worry.” The moon will pull the worry right up Read More
First time in the car together in over a month, heading to a Birthday Parade for a sweet, sweet ten year old. Sunshine on our heads, love in our hearts. Feeling grateful for love and family coming together in isolation.

I always thought I would have zero nervousness talking to my kids about sex. But, by the time my oldest were three and five, I felt the awkwardness kick in and I knew I needed to start the conversation ASAP. I wanted to start them off with information that would lead them to a healthy, Read More
We had love. We had love like people have an antique vase, up high on a shelf. Or like a couple would check their apartment for appliances before making a wedding registry. Yes, we have that already. Check. But somewhere along the road I had decided I wanted more. I wanted to feel love. I Read More
I grew up in figure skating, a place where the idea that perfection is attainable was a very real thing. The 6.0. At every competition I would stand on the ice as the judges would display their scores, telling me, on that day, how close or how far I was from being perfect. In addition Read More
Two of my nieces are staying with us for the week while my sister and brother-in-law are in Spain. As long as I have a few hours to myself every day, I love a busy house. Lunches, snacks, activity schedule, sleeping arrangements, laundry, I got it. My focus has been on the girls, that they Read More
