Pictures with Santa

I lived in Little Rock for six years. My husband and I had our first child the first August that we were there (I don’t recommend moving in June when you’re in your third trimester of pregnancy). A few months later, we did what every parent of a newborn did and took him to the […]

Handicap Halloween

When I was a kid, I loved Halloween. The costumes, the candy, running around outside in the fall air; it was a magical holiday. Then I grew up. And Halloween became sexy costumes for the women and foolish costumes for the men.  It was awful and predictable. And then I became a parent, and Halloween […]

The Double Name

I did it. I gave my daughter a double name. And honestly, I didn’t think anything of it. My husband and I like the way her first name and middle name sound together, we live in the South where double names are more common, and basically it just wasn’t a big deal. Except that it […]

If you have any of the following symptoms (although this list is not exclusive), you too may have Mom Amnesia: Forgetting why you called […]

True Confessions of a Pediatrician’s Wife

My husband is a pediatrician. Now, I know what you’re all thinking: Wow! How lucky you are! You must have the most healthy children! Yeah, no.     First, I must confess that my husband is not a general pediatrician. He did an additional three years of training to become a pediatric emergency room doctor. […]

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 […]
