Let Them Do It Themselves

One of the hardest parts about parenting a young child is having to do everything for them. You’re taking care of another person, completely responsible for their well-being and livelihood. It’s time consuming and stressful. But one of the things I have learned in my two years of being a mother is that we sometimes put […]

Redefining Productivity

I am lucky enough to be married to a man who has never once come home and asked me what I did all day. This could be because he values his life, or it could be because I’m a bit of a crazy person when it comes to “accomplishing things.” Babies didn’t even slow me […]

Just Call Me June Cleaver

In January there was the Women’s March. In March there was “A Day Without a Woman” for International Women’s Day. I want my daughters to live in a society in which they are respected and have equal opportunity to their male peers. Yet with this recent surge in feminist awareness, many times I still feel like a […]

Something for Everyone :: Meals for Picky Eaters

I never thought I’d have a picky eater. As a child, I loved (even craved and begged for) vegetables. As a baby, my son happily chomped down anything and everything (thanks, baby-led weaning). And then toddlerhood rolled around, and he started turning up his nose at previous favorites, like sauerkraut, and meticulously picking out all […]

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day With Kids

There’s no question that we live in one of the most Irish cities in America. Boston and Irish heritage are practically synonymous! So when March 17 rolls around each year, it’s hard to miss the gaggle of green that flanks the city, from parades to celebrations to the melodies of bagpipes and fiddles tucked around […]
