Finding November

I may be crazy to even think I can do it, but I’m going to try to blog every day in November. That’s right, I’m joining Nablopomo. There are so many reasons why this is too hard to even try. But there are so many more reasons why it will be good for me. This […]

Facing The Crowd

There’s something that draws me to a crowd. The anonymity. The possibility. The constant act of discovering something new. There is also something about a crowd that terrifies me. The loneliness. The overwhelmingness. The constant act of having to face something new. When I was 17 and deciding which University to attend, everyone pointed me […]

There is a tiny dot on my calendar every day from now until May 21. And there were four dots on the seven days that already passed by this month.

Stories I Tell

Almost exactly three years ago I told a story. I told the story of struggling with the boundary between myself and Nora’s teacher. I told the story of Nora sucking her thumb and everyone wanting her to stop. Except for me. And her. I told the story and for the first time people outside my […]

Filling My Cup

I am a better mother, wife, teacher, writer, person, when my cup is full (isn’t everyone?). When I feel challenged. When I have time to be creative. When I have new ideas spinning in my head, ideas that equal possibility. It is hard to keep my cup full when life does all it can to […]

I can review my year here on the screen, click through to see what I was a year ago and what I’ve become today. I can read and be happy that things have changed. Or read and be happy that things are still exactly the same. So if you care you reminisce with me, here […]

“There is no parent more vulnerable to the excesses of overparenting than an unhappy parent. One of the most important things we do for our children is to present them with a version of adult life that is appealing and worth striving for.” So ends the recent article in the New York Times – Raising […]

Small Blog Goes To Big Conference

This is the second of three posts recapping my weekend at BlogHer. This isn’t a big blog. I’m not a big person. But, this weekend, I went to the biggest blogging conference in the country. With over 4000 bloggers in attendance, I worried that I would feel out of place, that I would feel too […]

It Was Like Being Four

I’m going to split my BlogHer recap into three posts this week. This is the first installment.  I was four, standing in the hallway upstairs, waiting to hear my dad start to hum the signature music of the wooden soldiers. I stood by the cool railing, feeling my hands on my thighs as I readied […]
