    A To-Don’t List

    Yesterday, a friend forwarded me the HuffPost “50 Things Every Woman Should Know by 50″ list. It reads like a To Do list for maturity, but I would argue it’s more like a To Don’t list. At first glance, the items on t...

    If You Want To Be Happy, Don’t Have Kids

    If you want to be happy, you shouldn’t have kids. That’s a fact. Or at least, Time magazine and the sociologists who conducted this study believe so.

    Parents get less sleep, have less money, and less independence. Parents have more stress, more marital arguments, more expenses. READ MORE

    If You Say You Don’t Want Kids, I Have Just One Thing To Say To You.

    This has been a really hard week. We have been in the middle of a crazy heat wave, with no relief in the evening and my son has decided that sleeping at night just isn’t for him. I have now spent three nights out on the couch, not really sleeping. I am exhausted and hot and trying to find the mental strength to get through the next day. It’s moments like this I wish I had unlimited amounts of money and time and I could just hop a flight to an exotic destination and just go relax on the beach. I don’t even care if it’s just for a few days. READ MORE

    Mother’s Little Helper: My Performance Enhancing Drug

    The Best Toys To Grow With Your Toddler

    Many toys seem to come and go in our house, but it is so nice when I see my kids (now 4 and almost 2) continue to play with certain toys months– or even years– after they first receive them.  I love it even more if both of my kids will play with a toy at the same time.

    Here are a few favorites that fit the above criteria.  READ MORE

    The Loneliness

    After Lillian was born and my 6 weeks of maternity leave was up, I headed back to work part time. I worked 5am-9am so Luke took care of her in the morning, then dropped her off with me on his way to work, and Lils and I would walk home for the day. While the hours were super early, and I worked for a remote call center, I still had some guaranteed adult interaction five days a week which was so great and awesome and necessary. READ MORE
