I’ll be back to “People Who’ve Made Me Who I Am” very, very soon– I have a great one in the works about an important person in A’s life.
In the meantime, however, I wanted to jump way, WAY back in time. Over seven years back in time, in [...]
We tried ballet. Though she was adorable, it was a bit of a disaster. Not only was the coordination and keeping up difficult for her, but the girls from that class (and their moms) were catty as all get-out.
We tried karate. Though she made a concerted effort and [...]
Mothers’ Day just passed. I didn’t say a whole lot about that.
For many, it was a day of joy and celebration. For some, it was a time of excitement and anticipation. There were those who faced bittersweet days of acknowledging blessings while coping with loss. And still others faced pure [...]
I feel like it hasn’t been too long since I shared the latest US NICU rankings with you all, but that’s probably because I was slacking last time.
The new findings by Parents magazine have been released and I’ve got ‘em for you. Our beloved Riley is back [...]

(In case you’re not as libation-savvy as I, you should know that’s what you call a drink made with 7-Up and Seagram’s 7 whiskey. Get it? )

The point is: skinny kids aren’t [...]

Well, this one’s for you. According to U.S. New & World Report, these are the current [...]
It’s that time of year again! No, no, not Thanksgiving (though it’s ALWAYS a good time to give thanks)– tomorrow, November 17th, is World Prematurity Day. This is always super easy for me to remember because it is also my sister’s (a former preemie’s) birthday.
This is not a compensated post in [...]
I’ve had a child in contact lenses for a couple years now. And she’s not yet seven.
This is sometimes often shocking to people. I get lots of incredulous looks and tons of questions. So, just in case you’ve had some of the same queries, I thought I’d go ahead and address [...]
In the seven years I’ve been a mama, I have met a TON of doctors and specialists.
Pulmonologists, ophthalmologists, radiologists, neonatal audiologists, developmental pediatricians, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, infectious disease specialists, pediatric psychiatrists, nutritionists, retinal surgeons, and on and on… PLUS all the usual pediatricians and dentists!
There is one question that [...]
