Mom Brain — It’s So Real

My husband and I were driving home from brunch with friends on a gorgeous, sunny day while two children wailed in the backseat. The house, the final destination, was in view. And then, in the rearview mirror: blue lights flashing.  My husband pulled the car over, on our block, and rolled down his window. Of course, our […]

Crafting a Family Culture

Last fall, our older son turned 3 and really started getting excited about holidays, birthdays, and traditions.

I was suddenly obsessed with crafting our […]

Finding Time to Read… as a Mom

“Little Blue Truck.” “Dear Zoo.” “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site.” “Moo, Baa, La, La, La.” My guess is you have no trouble finding time to read these books. If your house is like ours, a small person is constantly clamoring to crawl into your lap and read another book. Every night my son begs for just […]

The Great Name Debate

You know those couples interviewed in design magazines who are always praising each other for their “excellent aesthetic” and “good eye”? Yeah, that is SO not my husband and me. We’ve argued over almost every piece of furniture we’ve ever brought into our house, and we’re still in a standoff (going on six months now) about […]
