So apparently there was another one of Those Articles this week? Or maybe it was last week and the online frothing carried over to this week, because everywhere I went online I saw headlines that were some riff on Having It All, Or Not Having It All, I Am Also Unclear On What “IT” Is MORE »

This is the last Westin-sponsored post from me (MOST. FUN. SPONSORSHIP. EVER!)…perhaps next week we can chat about more general travel-with-many-small-children topics? How we survived the plane, what we packed, what we forgot, what we packed and never removed from the suitcase, and such? The final activity on our Westin Kids Club itinerary was MORE »
Okay, all this “my kids had so much fun in Aruba” talk is nice and all, but now it’s time to talk about the night we abandoned them to the feral iguanas and had a grown-ups’ night out. Fine. I made up one part of that sentence. But seriously. A NIGHT OUT. ALONE. The holy MORE »
This morning, over Cheerios, Ezra gave me the puppy-dog eyes and asked, “Can we go to Aruba today?” Sadly, no. We cannot go to Aruba today. I asked him if he could name his favorite thing that we did there (you know, for RESEARCH PURPOSES), and he sighed a heavy sigh and said, “Breakfast.” True MORE »
My children are simple creatures, honestly. It doesn’t take much to delight and entertain them. It also doesn’t take much to thoroughly overwhelm and exhaust them. When we first arrived at the Westin Resort & Casino in Aruba, we were greeted by a friendly representative of the Westin Kids Club and handed an itinerary of MORE »
Seven years ago, my husband and I went to Aruba. I was about five months pregnant with our first baby. (And yet probably STILL about 25 pounds lighter than I am today. Grumblesagskinsneckfat.) I guess it was a “babymoon,” even though I kind of hate that term. But it was our last big vacation hurrah. MORE »
So. That last post I wrote here? That was really freeing to put together and publish. It’s not like it was full of Deep Shameful Seekrits or anything — I’m sure I’ve mentioned supplementing and Ferber along with breastfeeding and co-sleeping, but still. The Internet is weird. I posted a photo of Ike in his MORE »
So what would happen if TIME magazine showed up and asked me for photographic evidence of all my parenting beliefs and practices? Would I pass attachment parenting muster? HELL NO. In fact, they’d discover that I am nothing but a big bundle of contradictions, and why I refuse to claim adherence to any particular parenting MORE »
Yesterday I read this amazing post by Jane Roper, right here on Babble, about the “missing voices” in the (stupid, tiresome, dear God please talk about something else already) mommy wars: The disadvantaged women who have no choices, no safety net, no options when it comes to raising their children. The women who are just MORE »
Confession: I am writing about a video that I have not watched. That I will not watch. That I CAN’T watch. Now, I’ve seen a lot of messed-up things on the Internet. I’ve seen all the shock sites and videos, I’ve laughed at truly inappropriate jokes and images, I’ve backed away slowly from the weird MORE »
