Dear readers, we are finally in the final countdown for Baby #2! This morning I felt the anticipation building even before I opened my eyes: that now we can start to really number the days left before we have our second child, that we can start to take out the layette, clean the bottles, prep the bassinet, finish the nursery. I literally could not keep … Continue reading The Final Countdown
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.

Thomas had just arrived from New York the night before to spend a long weekend in the home my family has been renting on and off for … Continue reading Some big news!
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
