For as long as I can remember, I have been “the fat one.” The fat friend, the fat sister, the fat daughter, the fat ____ (insert role/title here). Three or four times in my life, I have managed to lose an amount of weight equal to that of a kindergartner, but still only just enough to […]
I sit here typing this, 38 weeks pregnant with my third child, munching on two servings of Trader Joe’s mini chicken tacos and doing some needed post-baby research. There are so many articles suggesting how to prepare for the arrival of your baby. It is good, solid advice, like eating small meals often so you […]
As I walked (quickly) off the trampoline, I could feel that my jeans were wet from my butt down the backs of my thighs. Yep. I had peed my pants.

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.

Happy New Year? This whole celebrating the New Year with excitement, vim, and vigor has never resonated with me. Are you kidding me? After the holidays, I feel like I just ran a marathon. I’ve got nothing left. That mindset was bothering me. And then I thought about it. My burgeoning business recently started taking […]
I have known my friend Cheri since middle school — we’ve sustained our friendship for over a quarter of a century. Though never best friends, we have remained a constant in each other’s lives. From sitting together in the high school cafeteria and reconnecting at summer gatherings during our college years, to connecting through Friendster […]

Many women evaluate birth control options based on ease of use, rate of failure, and types of side effects. Birth control is supposed to make your life easier and help you make the best choices for your health and well-being. But if you or members of your family have a history of blood clot or […]
Thank you Boston Medical Center for sponsoring this post.Whether you’re a first-time parent or an experienced pro, raising a child is challenging. From birth to third grade, your child is in a critical developmental period for cognitive, social, and emotional skills. As a parent, knowing what role to play in your child’s development and knowing […]
Can we be honest for a moment? I’m completely nervous writing on the internet about the birth control method my husband and I use. It’s such a personal topic — personal both in that you can’t get around talking about good ole S-E-X, but also personal because each couple has to make the decisions that […]
