My Toddler Nap Hacks (Tips and Tricks For More Daytime Baby Sleep)
As I write this, my 18 month old daughter is taking a nice, long nap! Nap time is when I clean up the house for real and get work a bit of work done. Sometimes, ever-so-rarely, I crochet or read. My daughter has never been a stellar sleeper and in the past she tended […]
Breastfeeding on Demand: a Cross-Cultural Perspective
I discovered the work of Gwen Dewar, Ph.D when ParentingScience.com covered her 2008 work on breastfeeding on demand, also known as “baby-led” and “on-cue” feeding. The basis of this practice is that baby, with the means they have developmentally at their disposal, initiates feedings with their mother. Feeding sessions begin with baby’s request and finishes when […]
Counting Down and Counting Our Blessings, New Year Family Traditions In the Making
I’m still on the gratitude kick (even if I’ve failed miserably at keeping up with my daily 365 Days of Gratitude writing on Facebook). Thinking about New Year’s has me thinking about the year-(almost)gone-by. The Christmas holiday just behind us, I’m also shoulder-deep in a desire to set more traditions in place in general […]
This “Hackschooler” Will Make You Think Differently About Education
Thirteen year old Logan LaPlante doesn’t go to school. Technically, he homeschools but he and his family go about it in a different way than most homeschooling families. He calls his self-developed education “hackschooling” and many other families are doing the same thing. In this Tedx video, Logan demonstrates how schools today are […]
How I Use (and LOVE) a Great Stretchy Baby Wrap
I’m going to start by letting you in on a BIG secret: I LOVE Boba! No kidding? NO KIDDING! Ha ha, right? The truth is that this is the truth. I wouldn’t be working for the company in myriad capacities over the years along with making sure every dear friend I have gets their products if […]
Adventures in Babywearing: Weddings!
Weddings are occasions that bring together family and friends, both near and far. They mark new beginnings and allow us to witness the love and commitment between two people. They also are fertile grounds for awesomely awkward toasts from distant relatives and a chance for your kooky cousin to show his best Macarena moves. And […]
How To Bring More Gratitude Into Our Families’ Lives Every Day
Last week, I wrote about how my family expresses gratitude at meals and how this simple practice connects us not only to the origins of our nourishment, but to each other as well. This week, I’m inspired to follow that one up with more talk of gratitude as a parent, as a family. There’s a […]
Celebrating Gratitude, Giving Thanks As a Family
Each autumn in the U.S. and Canada (October), we commemorate the celebration of harvest and peace between European settlers to the continent and local native inhabitants (check out this simple history of Thanksgiving from Kids National Geographic). We commemorate the pilgrims’ gratitude with our own gratitude for all we receive throughout the year, and with […]
Maybe (Probably) You’re Better Than You Think, Mom
What if all the things you think you do wrong every day – you know the things you feel all that mama guilt about – simply fell away in a moment of sheer appreciation for all your incredibleness? Well, that’s pretty much what happened for these moms and the effect was transformative (for them, and […]
Touching, Unguarded Portraits of Sleeping Parents-to-Be
I first came across Jana Romaova and her work in September, when Jordan G. Teicher did a feature for Slate.com on her totally captivating photographic series, Waiting, in which Romanova photographs 40 couples during their pregnancies. One photo of 40 different couples, one for each of the 40 weeks of what is considered a full-term […]
