A few weeks ago, we went to Benihana for dinner on a rainy Sunday night when Nick and I were both too tired to cook. Daisy had just undergone her (hopefully) last hip surgery that Friday and she was in a new cast, uncomfortable and antsy. Ella was cranky too. I wasn’t...

As we gear up for Daisy’s first full year at school, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how to keep her well-fed at school with nutritious meals and snacks she is truly excited to eat. She is very eager to use her new, sparkly turquoise backpack (which she calls h...

The further I move into my journey as a parent, the more I appreciate the things my parents did right and the lessons they passed on to me. Certainly, there are things I will do differently, but there are lots of things I want to do just the same. Here are just a few:

After Daisy was born, I struggled to try to produce breastmilk. Given that she was eight weeks early and delivered by C-section, my body wasn’t prepared - and I was exclusively pumping. I worked at it for four months - pumping several times a day only to produce an oun...

The great philosopher Kris Jenner once said, on a particularly deep episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, that “one is one, two is twelve” when it comes to children. For some reason, that little nugget always stayed with me - and I now understand what she meant.

If Nick and I have learned one thing in the last few years, it is this: no matter how precisely you plan, sometimes the universe has something else in store so it’s best to prepare for all possible scenarios. When our care team asked us about a birth plan, we decided t...

 In the next few weeks as we prepare to and welcome Ella Rose, I will likely alternate between original posts and sharing pieces of inspiration or links to other writing that I find useful for fellow parents. I recently saw this posted on Facebook and it spoke to me on...

It’s hard to believe that in about 21 days, we will meet our second child, Ella Rose Marie Sullivan. (Well, it’s not hard to believe in the sense that I fully feel as though I am carrying another complete human inside my body and that I could erupt into labor at any mo...
