NaNoWriMo: How I Did It

November’s almost here. Which means it’s almost my birthday. It also means we are approaching National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). I took on the November NaNoWriMo Challenge in 2013 but I never blogged about it. Probably because I was busy writing a novel, and growing a human, so by December, I was too tapped out […]

I’m on Huffington Post!

I was all set to sit down at my computer during this Very Special Time and write a blog post about Hannukah. The Very Special Time of which I speak the Haley’s comet of my week when both of my girls are napping at the same time. Not just in their rooms at the same […]

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 […]

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 […]

No, I’m not pregnant with triplets but thanks for asking.

Maybe I was asking for it because I was wearing a two piece swimsuit. Or perhaps it was that that the body revealed by my skimpy attire begged for attention- with its abundance of stretch marks, silvery- taupe in hue, gently drifting across my pregnant belly in horizontal wavy lines. And let’s not forget the […]

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 […]

A Primer for Making Small Talk With Pregnant Ladies

I am now every-stranger-feels-the-need-to-ask-me-if-I-am-almost-ready-which-I-am-not-thank-you-very-much weeks pregnant, aka) 30 weeks. That means nearly three months to go. Three months until my body is mine again except not because nursing and holding an infant, plus managing the constant and ever-changing demands of my mean boss toddler. In case you feel compelled to make small talk with a […]

A Baby on the Way in Boulder

Having a baby is a lot of work, even the second time around. There are months of planning, prepping, getting all the last minute tasks on your to do list crossed off, and then you somehow pull it off and you don’t know how you did it but it turns out to be amazing and […]

Who is Pregnant, Anyway?

I used to cringe when I heard the words “We’re pregnant.” We’re expecting. Fine, no problem. My wife is due in June. Great. But We’re pregnant? This phrase, especially when uttered by a man, was like nails on a chalkboard to me. It reminded me of Elvin, from the Cosby Show. Remember him? He was […]

If I had a million dollars…

If I had a million dollars, I would encourage Dan to invest and save about half of it any way he wanted because that would make him happy.  I don’t totally understand his fascination with interest rates and mutual funds but I respect it and I’m sure I will be grateful for it when we […]
