  1. Baby
    It's the makings of a great joke, "You know you're a mom when..." And, though we mamas take our roles very seriously, where would we be in life without some laughs? (Or cries, as the case may be!) We talked to mamas in our Mothering Forums and asked them for ways to know it's obvious you're a...
  2. Family Life
    Have I mentioned that I have a two year old? 'Tis true. And she is one HECK of a two year old. In fact, she has always been an intense child. As a baby she awoke every hour or two. (I realize this is normal.) But she always woke up screaming. I would nurse her back to sleep or do whatever...

  6. Pregnancy & Birth
    Birth is sacred. It is the transition from couple to family, from woman to mother, from one to two. Birth is also, for most of us, a touch scary. It is still, after all these millennia, a mystery in many ways. And so, it is somewhat natural to dismiss the first birth. People often say...

    Recently a story about Baby Boxes given to new moms in Finland hit the news and struck a chord. The concept of one box packed full of everything a new mama needs for herself and baby is a great one and we wondered - what would Mothering mamas put in such a box? What would really be useful to a...
  8. Pregnancy & Birth
    In the 3 years prior to conceiving my daughter, I spent 7 months on clomid, did what seemed like endless months of injections and ultrasounds through failed IUI's and IVF's, had 4 early miscarriages, and had 3 surgeries just months apart on my pelvic region. There were also complications like...
  9. Family Life
    When my son was born five months ago, I expected to be a seasoned, confident mother. I had been mothering his sister for four years, after all, so I thought I had this parenting thing down. And, in some ways, I did feel more sure of myself. I skipped over many of the blunders and anxieties that...
  10. Family Life
    When I first became a mother I was always "there." You know. Answering every question. Watching every special moment. Paying attention so as not to "miss out" or "harm their self esteem." Of course as time went on and I added more and more children to the mix, this became impossible both...
