The Last Baby

When I was young, I imagined what my family would be like. I thought I would have two children: one boy and one girl (Obviously). Their names would be Cooper and Semmes, both family names that I’ve loved since I was a teenager. It was going to be perfect. And then real life happened. My […]

Dear Teachers, You Matter

The Lies Moms Tell Themselves

Step into my office.  Have a seat on my comfortable couch.  Lean in and listen.  I’m about to give you some free therapy.  Don’t worry, you need to hear this.  We all do.  And you will feel better afterwards.  You will leave feeling lighter.  You will be more empowered.  It’s time to expose the lies.

This Morning I Was Pregnant

This morning, I was pregnant. This afternoon, I am not. The last time I could say that, I had a baby to hold. A crying, red-faced, tiny being that I instinctively comforted and rocked. This time, I’m the one who is crying. I am the red-faced, fragile person in need of comfort. My arms are empty. My womb, created to […]
