Put a Record On

I think my success as a parent has already peaked. My toddler now thinks ALL music comes from vinyl records.

Unsaid Sad Birth

The Unsaid Part of Giving Birth

Tomorrow, I will have a two-week-old baby boy. This time I knew what to expect, but that wasn’t the case with my first-born. Following my first pregnancy, I was knocked to the ground with an encumbering cloud of despair. It caught me by surprise with no warning. Baby blues are too often the unsaid part […]
