“Nursing is easy and fun 100 percent of the time!” said no one ever. “Training for a marathon while nursing is easy and fun!” Also, said no one ever. I had made a personal goal after my second baby to train and complete a full marathon. I set my goal for the Honolulu Marathon, which […]

I am going to just come right out and say it. I have been having an affair … with H-E-B. The first time we met, I didn’t know what I had. I was young and foolish. I used you to buy almost ready-made meals and cheap beer or a bottle of Strawberry Daiquiri Boone’s Farm. […]
When the nesting urge struck me recently, it struck like lightning. Everything that lingered on my to-do list for the last eight months suddenly felt more urgent than ever before. In one hormone and coffee fueled afternoon, I reorganized a hall closet, sorted through all the baby clothes, set up the crib, and ordered a […]

As it goes with any overseas move, during these 10 weeks, we didn’t have our household goods because in the quite accurate words of our 4-year-old daughter, […]
We found out that my wife was pregnant with our first child and that I had orders to Aviano Air Base in Italy at almost the exact same time. Up until that point, my wife worked full time as a pediatric psychologist at a local children’s hospital. She spent most of her day in and […]
When I think back to my time using a breast pump with my first child, my memories are pretty ho hum at best. Mostly, I remember being alone in a confined space, with a ticking clock, telling me I needed to hurry back to work as I eyed the bottles awkwardly attached to my body […]
