A friend and fellow therapist put out a group text expressing her horror at the homework her five-year-old nephew brought home. Apparently at the tender age of five, he was tasked with putting X’s thru the “unhealthy” foods like pizza, ice cream and soda and circling t...

It’s been 15 weeks since my baby was born. 15 long or short weeks depending on where you’re looking from. This means, because I’m a US citizen, I have had to return to work. If I were Swiss or German or Danish or Canadian or Martian, I’d still be at the beginning of my...

People often ask me how I tolerate traveling frequently for work. “Isn’t it so hard

being away from your babies?” they ask. The first several times I heard some

version of that question, I felt a twinge of guilt. That nagging critical voice begging

seems to be the perfec...

Pregnancy is supposed to be the ultimate time for self care. When I was pregnant

the first go ‘round I envisioned prenatal yoga, massages, foot rubs and my husband

making midnight ice cream runs. Then reality slapped me in the face. Instead of

slowing down, I found myself...

Literally. This year has started off with every one of our head’s in every single toilet.

Thank you Opal. She spread new year’s germs rather than cheer. And boy did it

spread. Right after bringing in the new year snuggled up in bed, watching movies

and hoping for health,...

The holidays, as usual, were a flurry of activity. It was Opal’s third birthday and then shopping and cooking and parties, oh my. Each day I intended to sit down and write something about the most wonderful, stressful, tired, busiest, happiest, fullest time of year. I...

I’m back. After an unintentional hiatus, I’ve decided to get back in the saddle. An interesting analogy for me given that I’m terrified of riding horses. After I created the blog, my husband made it my internet landing page to help me stay inspired. Clearly that worked...
