Hope for the Weary :: Out of the Parenting Weeds for One Blessed Minute

Most of my parenting life is spent in the weeds. You know them, I’m sure. Probably you’re in them right now. They wrap around you, weaving fatigue and loneliness with joy and delight, boredom and monotony with wonder and love. Because motherhood is nothing but a total duality of emotions. The weeds are reheated coffee […]

Baring the Boob :: Tips for Dressing While Nursing

Pregnancy presents many challenges, one of which is getting dressed each day. Dressing a growing baby bump isn’t easy.

I still probably wouldn’t be able to pick her out of a lineup, unless of course the lineup was comprised of normal people, because she’s surely taller, more bronzed, and altogether more superhuman than the rest of us. Anyway, I didn’t know, didn’t care about […]

A Year of Breastfeeding

In the beginning (the beginning before the beginning), breastfeeding is a holy thing. A sweet, perfect ideal. We’re talking Madonnas with halos, black and white photography with blurred edges. It is cast in gold with amber glowing light. It’s “best for baby,” don’t you know — 90% of Harvard graduates were breastfed, only 2% of breastfed […]

I Love You, Alyssa Milano :: Thoughts on Not Covering Up

I’ve always been a fan of Alyssa Milano. She’s a great actress, she’s definitely the best host “Project Runway: All Stars” has ever had, and she has a fantastic line of NFL apparel for women.
