It Is Always Sexual Assault Awareness Month Inside My Head

April 7, 2010

The weather has finally turned towards warm, and we’ve been outside almost non-stop for days. Rio learned to ride her bike, as I may have mentioned. Tonight, she rode it about a mile and a half, to a party at a friend’s house and then home again. That kid just blows my mind. Serena too. [...]

A Blog of One’s Own

March 16, 2010

My corner of the blogosphere has been in an uproar over the New York Times article scathingly titled, “Honey, Don’t Bother Mommy.

November 11, 2009

I’ve just joined the staff at Strollerderby, the “mother of all parenting blogs”. One of my first articles, “Hospital Rejects Birth Plans”, has started a little comments riot over there. To whit: A hospital in Provo, UT, has posted a sign telling women that if they want a birth plan, a doula or a Bradley [...]

Boycott the Marriott!

August 14, 2009

Apparently this is the week to boycott big businesses. First there was the Whole Foods boycott for health care reform. And now this lovely story about the Marriott blaming a mom for being raped in front of her little kids in one of their parking garages. The Marriott is arguing in court that this woman [...]
