Listen To Them If your kids are like mine, they don't stop talking until they go to sleep. They go a mile a minute. There’s never a dull moment. You can ask me anything about superheroes and Sonic the Hedgehog. I know all about Cody’s dog in Jacob’s class. He was bitten by a snake this weekend! I know Jack’s friend AJ loves chocolate dinner mints. My kids never stop talking to me.  Most of the talk is about their favorite superheroes, planets, and monster trucks. But sometimes they tell you something you really need to know. It’s usually layered under other more mundane topics. A game of Would You Rather reveals so much. If you keep listening to them, you’ll...

Day after day I see moms asking for advice, for recommendations, for simple acknowledgement that they’re doing the right thing. From time to time I comment, hoping to help. I’ve been out of the breastfeeding game for 2 years now and I still miss it very often. I miss the bond with my children. I miss the milk drunk smiles and their little hands rubbing my face while they happily nursed. I look back on that time with so much fondness. I’ve breastfed 3 out of my 4 children. My daughter nursed for three and a half years, my two youngest sons each nursed...
An Open Letter To Moms :: When Your Child Struggles In School To the mom of children who struggle in school :: I see you. From experience, today was probably another hard day. Maybe you got a dreaded phone call from school, where the administration suggested another meeting. Perhaps it is a note about your child’s behavior written out professionally, but you can feel the frustration behind it. Maybe it is the judgment you felt from another parent when you mention your child’s name. Maybe the graded test papers were sent home with red all over. Perhaps it was the lack of positive reinforcement at school, the lack of a positive note of accomplishment in your child’s book sack. No matter the reason, today...
