Face Value

I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy right after Lady Bug was born. So, on top of having a fussy newborn, I had a jacked up face, and everything that goes along with that. It ended up being a hard year. I’ve always thought the worse an experience, the better fodder it is for your writing. […]

It Gets Easier

I overheard the only dad in Sweet Pea’s swim lesson mention something about a baby at home in between blowing bubbles and practicing reaching and pulling. “We have a baby at home too.” I offered. “How old?” he asked. “Four months. What about you?” “Three days.” I smiled and offered congratulations. “Does it get easier?” […]

An update: pregnancy, the home birth book and definitely not feeling blessed

Remember when I was really excited about my home birth book project? And how I didn’t say anything about it for a while, and then I was consumed with Listen To Your Mother, and then I was obsessing about why, at this stage of my pregnancy, I can’t just wear a damn two piece swimsuit […]

Reality Check

Oh yeah, I have a blog. I’ve been too busy bellyaching about how hard it is to be 33 weeks pregnant to actually update this thing. And then on Monday, someone told me something I didn’t know I needed to hear. After the spin class I am subbing for a friend who just started her […]

Traveling with my Toddler: Heaven is Having My Lap to Myself

This holiday season an amazing thing happened. I enjoyed air travel with my toddler. I even read a few chapters of my book on the plane. See, I used to love planes. I loved everything about air travel. I liked to buy a magazine, a processed snack and a $4 bottle of water at the […]

Race Report: Urban 10 Miler

I was at a party the night before this race and I met some women who told me they got into running recently because bike racing was starting to be too much pressure. So we got to chatting and I mentioned I had this race the next day and they were asking me about the […]

Grateful

I was all ready to write about the trauma of trying to find the perfect outfit for the Listen To Your Mother Show. But then I heard what happened at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and blogging about my fashion woes seemed about as appropriate as tweets like “9 inches of snow. It’s […]

Home Alone

Last weekend I came home from my run to find my house looking like a drunk midget had burglarized it. I’m used to this, as I live with a 13 month old who is into everything within her wingspan. I called out to see where everyone was and got no response. I peeked into the […]

Another Awesome Birthday.

This weekend I celebrated my birthday. Do not misunderstand: I’m not saying one of the things I did this weekend was celebrate my birthday. I am saying I peppered the entire weekend with celebratory activities. Why everyone doesn’t use their birthday as an excuse to get friends together, eat cake, and do the things they […]
