My Last Baby is ONE!

I laid my baby girl, my third child, my LAST one, to sleep for the last time as an infant. Today she is a big girl. She is walking and signing and throwing full-on toddler tantrums as a ONE-YEAR-OLD. All of the many milestones this year have been so different. When they said girls are […]

We Are All Broken

We Are All Broken

Do you ever feel like the universe is trying to tell you something? Well, lately, it’s been telling me this: We are all broken. I just finished reading Jennifer Weiner’s book All Fall Down about a well-educated, upper-middle-class wife, mother, and writer who becomes addicted to pain medication.
