Welp. We’ve had a month. The stomach bug hit our house twice. And while it was mild and only affected two family members, we were all on lockdown in our house. Then we picked up a cold from visiting family members and, once again, each of my children had a mild fever and cough that […]

At two years postpartum, I still don’t feel quite like myself. I carry extra baby weight, but it isn’t physical. It’s the weight of motherhood.
Recently, some friends and I went to brunch at the Fairmount Grille in Hyde Park. We talked about women from college who went full throttle into the working world instead of pursuing the mommy path after undergrad. After graduating, these women went on to pursue careers in law, medicine, engineering, and business. Many of them completed […]

My husband and I started watching “The Office” in 2008. The show was already in its fourth season, but we caught up quickly when we bought all the previous seasons on DVD (before the awesomeness of streaming). We fell in love with all the characters — Jim, Pam, Michael, and Dwight, especially. I do not […]
My daughter has always been described using what I believe to be “stereotypical” little girl descriptors. From the moment her infant lips learned to coo, she hasn’t stopped talking. Learning words has only exacerbated this process. She’s just a little chatterbox! As she stared out the window while learning to read, seemingly ignoring the world around […]
Saying “Yes, please” and “No, thank you” can ease our burdens. If we do, we make better mothers, better partners, better friends, and better selves.

It’s that time of year… that time from November through April, when your children’s noses are constantly running, there’s always someone coughing, and you keep feeling that incessant tickle in your throat. Having only so many sick days at work — and feeling guilty when I need to take one — it’s the time of […]
There’s just something about food that brings people together. But it’s hard to enjoy that bowl of pasta you just prepared for your family when you and your partner have had long, exhausting days and are shoveling it down in order to get something in your stomachs. The last thing you want to do is […]
Thank you, Ethos Early Learning Center, for sponsoring this post.
With Valentine’s Day approaching and prior holiday candy lingering, it’s a tug-of-war between my sugar addiction and healthy eating to adequately fuel myself to keep up with mom life. It’s the same story for my kids — the balance of letting them enjoy a few sweet treats while not overdoing it. This is alongside my […]
It was a celebration-filled weekend when one of my closest friends, after a 15-year hiatus, graduated from law school. As college “first-years” this friend was adamant that she was going to law school after graduation. She fell in love with law when she interned for a lawyer’s office the summer before we started college. The […]
