What They Didn’t Tell You to Expect :: Year 1

Next week we will celebrate our son's first birthday — and with it, the one-year anniversary of our journey into parenthood. Like many first-time parents, my husband and I dutifully read through books that covered diaper changes, breastfeeding, bathing, skin care, swaddling, and everything in between. Now, a year later, I can tell you that [...]

The Organized Parent

Making Family Memories at a Music Festival

We had a blast, but I never thought I’d agree to another festival — never mind at age 40, with children.  But […]
