    Losing My Kid

    Although misplacing my nine-year-old son has become a commonplace experience, it is nonetheless still unsettling.

    The first time, he was eighteen months old, in the yard playing one moment, and nowhere the next. I found him in the dark garage — the second time I looked — shuffling amidst the dangerous-to-a-toddler bikes, laundry detergent, old paint.

    What To Expect [When You Go To A House With Young Kids]

    I get nervous when people who don’t have kids come over to our house. As a mom of a 3.5 year old and a 1.5 year old, I can say with absolute certainty that my house is never perfectly clean. While I have come to pretty much accept this, I still worry that people without kids will not understand that dusting is simply not in my repertoire anymore (unless I happen to have a used napkin balled up in my hand). They won’t get the fact that in any given moment a fresh disaster is about to unload on my carpet. Stains, huge primary-colored toys, and sticky countertops are a daily fixture of my life now; I don’t see that changing anytime soon. READ MORE

    7 Childhood Milestones That Are Actually Worth Celebrating

    There are some milestones in childhood that mothers look forward to with great anticipation, and others we look forward to with a fair amount of dread. There are the usual suspects, sleeping through the night, able to feed themselves, first steps, first days of school. We usually mark these milestones with a little fanfare. Write it in the baby book! Take a photo! Share it with friends & family!

    This post is not about any of those types of milestones. READ MORE
