How Not To Make Allergy-Friendly Breakfast Quinoa

I make a mean allergy-friendly breakfast quinoa. I’m talking dairy-free, egg-free, vegan, nut-free and  gluten-free. I am no domestic goddess, but this is one area where I excel. Except when I leave Dan in charge. Without telling him he’s actually in charge. *     *     * I crept into our darkened house and was […]

Why Being a SAHM Is The Best… For Your Partner

“I wish I could go to work,” I whined. We had a newborn and a toddler. I was sleep-deprived and completely overwhelmed. My husband encouraged me to go back to work. “But financially, it hardly makes sense,” I countered. Ever the optimist, he responded, “I don’t care if it costs us money. If it makes […]

I Don’t Feel Bad About Fighting in Front of the Kids

I’m suspicious of couples that claim they never fight. These people are either a) lying, or b) unicorns. My husband and I fight. I wish we didn’t, but both of us are way too stubborn for that. I get annoyed that he never knows where anything is. He finds it grating when I immediately ask for help […]

The Story Behind There’s No Room for Fear in a Burley Trailer

Not long after Dan and I met, he said, “It would be so fun to publish a book of your best blog posts.” I said, “Yeah!” And then after I thought about it some more, I said “No!” Dan kept bugging me about it, and I kept saying no, and after a while he started […]

A Happy Anniversary

Each year, Dan and I take turns planning our anniversary. Last year it was his turn to plan, which was good, considering I was four days postpartum and in no position to plan… anything. We did it lower than low key, at home, while my mom took Sweet Pea out to dinner. We were “alone” […]

Seven Valentine’s Days Later…

Dan and I met on Valentine’s Day. Four hours later, I refused to go home with him, although I really wanted to. The next day, he texted me, “Good luck!” I forgot I’d even mentioned I had a job interview that day. A year later I nagged him about the wrinkled shirt he wore for our anniversary […]

Listen To Your Mother 2014: My talk and a challenge.

I didn’t know whether I wanted kids. That’s what I’m talking about in essay I read at Boulder’s Listen To Your Mother Show. Here is a link to my talk, “The Joy of Pregnancy.” It seemed fitting that I should talk about pregnancy on stage, just two weeks shy of my due date. You will […]

Tough Love

Ever since I can remember, my New Year’s resolution was to stop pressing the snooze button. And not just every January- every September too, because I celebrate the jewish new year in addition to the regular new year. Every year for the last 20 or so years, I’ve had not one but two opportunities each […]

Letting Go

Do you ever have an argument with your husband and a day or two later, you can’t even remember what it was about? You remember how mad you were, how upset he was, but if, say, it came down to some government interrogation, the second they hinted at torture, you’d agree it was about the […]
