Embracing Our Post-Birth Forms, The Fourth Trimester Bodies Project
Postpartum weight. Stretch marks. Scars. Changes in breast size and shape. Differences in sex drive and sexual pleasure. These are just a few of the body-mind-heart centered issues on the plates of new (and not-so-new) mothers. For many, not much of what comes after pregnancy is deeply explored or educated upon. First things first, the […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.

Last November, a blogger named Tonya Ferguson, who writes her family blog 4littlefergusons, wrote a post that she title, “Dear […]

Mom Has a Potty Mouth? It is Time to Own Up!
I cuss. I do. I have wanted to write this post for a while, but honestly I am embarrassed that I use some coarse language on an almost daily basis. I didn’t grow up in a home where cursing was a regular occurrence. In fact, it was rarely heard, even though many a situation could have justified […]
Leaves of Change, Family Travel Keepsakes From Nature
Sitting here today, watching the southern hemisphere spring emerge, I started thinking of the leaves changing, flowers budding, things growing just as my young baby is growing before my eyes. I thought of my trip back to Boulder last summer and how I plucked some leaves to steal back with me to a wintery Chile […]
