Sarah Gilbert's fabulous birth story

It seems like pregnancies go by in the blink of an eye -- when they're not your own, that is. My best friend is due to give birth next month, and I swear she told me she was pregnant yesterday. And when Susan Wagner wrote in a tip that our own Sarah ...

Postcards from four years old: how life has changed

I clicked on someone's blog tonight, a mom who lives near me. She was feeling mom-ed out, ready to re-realize herself as not just a mommy blogger. I respect her and love her and even relate to where she is as a mom but: not me. A few clicks later I ...

Sarah Gilbert on the BBC

You knew that Sarah Gilbert can write, knit, and make exceedingly original birds (as well as create some of the most ridiculously adorable children on the planet.) But did you know she and her family are also saving the planet, and that the BBC is ta...

When is attention to your children, too much?

I just returned from a fun errand with Truman in the bike trailer. We hung out downtown, where everyone commented on his happy perfection. A man heading to his smoke break helped me park the trailer, which wanted to poke out into the truck loading zo...

Blogging Baby podcast: take one, relationships with other mamas

"Why not have a Blogging Baby podcast?" we all ruminated. Over a year ago. So when Sarah Gilbert approached the team a few weeks ago about the possibility of doing a podcast, we all said, "great! ... ummm ... how do you do that?" And 40 emails later,...

Reunion (with kids): it's not quite the same

My husband returned home tonight after two weeks of Army Reserve duty. And although it wasn't the first time he'd left me alone with my children, it was the first time since I had one baby on the outside and a full-time, all-the-time, work-from-home ...

Breakfast out with the boys: a photo essay

Last weekend after I returned home from my business trip, I made a point to play hooky from my computer for an entire day. First up: a late breakfast with my boys, the big one and the two littler (and equally cute) ones. The chandelier at Mother's wa...

Travelling day three: umm, much better!

I am sitting in my hotel room waiting for my colleagues to arrive for our meeting. Coffee is brewing in the cute little one-mug machine and two full Ziplock bags of breastmilk are resting in our little fridge. And best of all: eight hours of sleep in...

Parenting magazine: I don't fit any of your categories

If you're anything like me, when you read an article like the one in April's Parenting magazine about mom cliques, one of those with a list of "types" and a description, you immediately try to categorize yourself. I know how these articles ...

Leslie Morgan Steiner blogs mommy work for Washington Post

Leslie Morgan Steiner is me, well, almost. She's a Wharton MBA (I'm a Wharton MBA!). She works from home (I work from home!). She's taking a step down from her career as an "executive" to do something a little slower, to accomodate life wit...

Playdate, a timeline

9:02 a.m. Truman wakes, paws at my face in delight. 9:03 a.m. I look over my shoulder at the window. Rain streams down and grey light fills the room. 9:12 a.m. I pull myself out of bed. 9:43 a.m. Diapers are changed, bananas are procured, shirts and ...

Teething and the power of oxytocin

He's drooling... he must be teething! Fevers? He's probably teething. Oh, look at your baby chomp on those toys! He's surely teething. I've been listening to the old, and not-so-old, wives for pretty much the whole eight-some months of Truman's life....

Everett's room, a photo essay

Finally I have, after months and months, ok, years, of poor planning, of mess, and jumble, and piles of mis-matched toys, I have organization. It's a beautiful thing. And I had almost nothing to do with it. I'll tell you about it, though. Take a spin...

Blogging baby book: he stands! he stands!

2005.01.14.11:30 p.m. truman stands alone. kitchen. I'd forgotten how thrilling that moment was, the first instant your baby stands unassisted. Truman is eight-and-a-half months, almost to the day, and it was after I'd put Everett to bed. Truman, he...

Thrift store rules: buy two, give one

I just returned from a fantastic trip to my favorite thrift store (yeah, the one where I usually score my Hanna Andersson goodies). Not only did I get some great Hanna jammies (for me and for the boys), but I also found a primo Cranky from Thomas the...
