Traditional families in the game of Life

Santa brought us the board game Life for Christmas. I hadn't played that game since I was a child, and I was genuinely surprised at the amount of changes to it: The careers are different, there are lots more action cards and it is much harder to go into debt.…

More kids equals more stuff done at work

Parents develop skill sets that no one talks about. In addition to awesome time management and the ability to function on a lack of sleep, we also have the ability to make up songs on the fly, invent games to distract children while waiting in line and even build super-cool forts out of pillows and blankets.…

Bed time at my house. (A little late)



For now, I'd say bedtime at our house is pretty calm. I know that will all change once Oslo arrives, though. So I'm really enjoying these last couple of months of easy nights.



We have a pretty basic routine.  This wasn't always the case.  Getting my son to bed was such a hassle until the past couple of years.  But now, finally we have a routine that he actually enjoys!

There's a Lego underfoot

When I first lived alone, I was mildly afraid of the dark. I would hate investigating weird noises by myself and refused to leave the perceived safety of my bed in the middle of the night.



As a mom, I am afraid of the dark for a completely different reason: I am pretty sure I am going to step on a…

Shhhh...Let me enjoy the quiet

In about an hour from now, I will be in the car. I'll have dropped my little guy off at school for the day, gotten back into my car, and will be sitting in traffic.

Families interrupted by work

As soon as I got pregnant, two things started happening right away:

  1. Other mothers started telling me pregnancy- and child-related horror stories. (Seriously, why do women do this?)
