Hi dear readers, I’ve been silent because I’ve been sitting with some kinda writer’s block… also known as “SO pregnant and just TOO TIRED to think.” I’ve been grinding away at a more academic post on how people prioritize having a child of one gender over another, and tend to prefer to have families of at least both genders, but I’ve had to put it … Continue reading Babymooning!
Hi readers, I have been working on a post about the new baby, but I’ve paused it to write about New York’s new abortion law, because I think it needs to be addressed. I don’t usually veer political or religious on this blog because I don’t think it’s anyone’s business, but I think this is worth bending the rules for. I see a lot of … Continue reading On New York’s new abortion law
Hello kind souls, Since we last spoke, about two months have passed… which means (and as of today, officially) I am halfway through my pregnancy with Baby Number Two! We are so excited. The new nursery is taking shape: lighting is installed, the crib is ordered, the changing table is on the way, and the colors are chosen.

Any creativity I have is sponged out of my brain by attempting to entertain a busy 18 month old and trying to memorize Latin declensions and morphologies. Oh, and by the travails of sleep … Continue reading The sleep you ordered is out of stock!
Okay, okay, that title is kind of clickbait, so I apologize. I care more about something (someone) than I ever have in my entire life, so let’s get that straight. However, like a lot of moms, I find myself with very little bandwidth for stupid things lately. In arguments with my husband, I often find myself throwing my hands up and saying, “Honestly, I have … Continue reading How to not care as much? Have a baby!
Hello again, dear friends. Sorry for the two-day hiatus. We are sleep coaching B for the umpteenth time, and she developed a cold yesterday while I was away in the city. To say we’re tired is an understatement! More like we’re zombies who haven’t yet turned green and droopy. In any case, I thought I would tell you a little more about myself, since you … Continue reading Flying by the seat of my pants/ Channeling Elle
