“Be aware of that place where you are brought to tears. That’s where your heart is and that’s where your treasure is.” – The Alchemist, Paulo Cohen I’ve been wrestling with my soul in the strangest of places lately: In my car on the way to work listening to the soundtrack of Moana! It may […]
The opening scene from the musical Wicked is a song called “Thank Goodness” where Galinda the Good Witch is addressing a crowd of her supporters and fans. If you know the score, you know what I’m talking about. She has a seemingly perfect fiancé and is lavished with attention from both the public at large […]

What would your Google search history say about you? Are you a hypochondriac googling every sniffle, poop color change and slightest sign of a rash? Are you a development-obsessed mom who wants to know if walking after 12 months is normal? (It totally is.) Do you constantly have to know the answer to something to […]
Ladies, let’s just be honest: being a Mom is by far the hardest, most demanding job we will ever have. It is also the single most important job we will ever have. There are sleepless nights, days you want to pull every last hair out, times you sit in the car and cry because you […]
It’s the Murphy’s Law of parenting that right when your kid starts to get the hang of potty training, that road trip you’ve been planning is suddenly right around the corner. How do you tackle long car rides and other pottying-on-the-go dilemmas? Plan, plan, plan. 1. Prepare the pottier A few days before the trip, […]
The challenges of motherhood are many. But, for me, none have been as heart-wrenching, tear-jerking and mentally, physically and emotionally exhausting as coping with lip and tongue tie with not one, but two babies. (And I’m not out of the woods yet.) We’re all born with tissue that connects our top lip to the gum […]
We all know that mom, especially on social media. She’s the one you can count on hearing from when you post that pic of your kid with the Lunchable. She’s the one that can somehow type out an audible “tisk” on a wide variety of parenting topics, from cartoons to co-sleeping. You read her passive-aggressive […]
About a year and a half ago my husband and I bought a fixer-upper. It is our dream home, with a pool and gorgeous yard, but the inside is…dated. Like 1983, green carpet, wallpaper on every wall in every room, and a kitchen that looked like Mardi Gras puked in it. I kid you not. […]
When I was in college, the gym was life. I’d wake up well rested, had an overflowing amount of energy, didn’t have little people to worry about. Most of the time I flew by the seat of my pants. I’d work out in the mornings and catch a kickboxing class on my way home in […]
Once upon a time, before my husband and I had kids, we took a magical trip to the city of San Francisco with two other couples. And on this magical journey we took a wine tour visit to Sonoma. After lots of stops and maybe a few glasses of wine, we sat down for lunch […]
You’d think I’d be used to it by now… Perched nervously on the ultrasound table just a few weeks ago, the hubby and I excitedly awaited the news about what we’d be adding to our brood: Boy or girl? Blue or, finally, pink? With two boys rolling around at home already it would be easy to […]
