So there’s this baby…

April 14, 2010

Some of you may recall that my best friend had a baby last fall, and I was with her for the birth. Here’s a pic of Bridget, all growed up and wielding a light saber wooden spoon. Today, I had the joy of supporting another friend through her labor, and seeing another tiny human come [...]

Baby Envy?

May 1, 2009

note to self

June 30, 2007

Dear me, If you are lying awake in bed at night wondering, “Was that a real contraction?” the answer is pretty much certainly “No.” If, an hour later, you still lying awake wondering if you are too hungry to sleep, a glass of warm milk and a slice of fresh bread are a perfectly acceptable [...]

taking a note from the Queen, in an effort to counter the crankiness I’ve been spewing all day: I’m grateful for: – my kids – I’m healthy – my Womb-bat is healthy, and in a perfect position to be born when s/he’s ready – best. partners. ever. – bread pudding – comfy pants – awesome [...]
