  3. Family Life
    A summer ago, at a community gathering, I witnessed a beautiful relationship between a mother and her son. This observation allowed me to reflect on the cyclical nature of mothering. While nursing my son to sleep on the porch, our skin sticky from the heat, I gazed up into the night sky. The...

    Parenting is a beast of a job and, sometimes, it can feel like you're doing it alone. But, it doesn't need to be that way. Every mom needs a village of care. I thought being a modern mom meant not only doing it all on your own, but doing it well. "I can do this," I would think. "I'm a smart...

    Well, I certainly hope my kids don't need a perfect mother, because they definitely don't have one. I probably spend too much time worrying about the state of my mothering abilities. I would love to go into the ways I fail right here, but I am all too familiar with the cutthroat Mothering...

          Do you ever have moments that you just know will be funny in another 10 years? I do.   Except I didn't really think it was funny the other day. That is because it happened to me. (I hope that that YOU will find some amusement in this.)   I was in the bathroom today. I don't want...
  9. Pregnancy & Birth
    Maybe you have noticed one of the latest YouTube phenomenons- the Harlem Shake. There are dozens of them online. They all start in a similar way- one person dancing and then- BOOM- a room fool of craziness and chicken suits.   But of course, for any true birth nut a Harlem Shake fad wouldn't...

  11. Toddler & Child
    When I was a young girl, there were a handful of women that I had my own relationship with. My own mother had very good women friends and she encouraged me to have my own one-on-one connection with them. There was Victoria who lived across the walk street; I would cross the sidewalk to her...

      My mom, Leone in her birthday suit, and me. Photo courtesy of Christopher Briscoe. I went back to work after the kids went to bed last night and then James and I stayed up … talking (since Mothering is a family magazine, let's just say we were talking.) Leone woke to nurse...

    Mindful Motherhood, simply put, is being present in your body, and connected with your baby even when the going gets rough.
