The Goddess Myth: Dealing with Disappointment

  “Mothers will do anything. I knew that going into my research for this story,” writes Claire Howorth in her cover article for TIME magazine from October 30th, 2017. “But for all the communal aspects of bearing and raising children, for all the prescriptions we follow on the path of shaping another human, motherhood is […]

Who Needs Sleep?

Maybe my son and I have more in common that I thought… Like, climbing into bed with Mom & Dad most nights!

A Dream Come True
