When Allison's first child was born, she imagined stay-at-home motherhood to consist of blissful days filled with finger-painting and frolicking at the park. Three children later, the reality was more like a scene from Captain Phillips with her children surrounding her and murmuring softly, but sternly, "We're the captains now."

She draws from her personal experiences and her past education and clinical experience in Marriage and Family Therapy to offer solutions to other parents through her blog, Our Small Hours.
