A little winter poem…

Posted by on Feb 4, 2014 in MCG Moms, Mom Perspectives | 0 comments

  All this winter hibernation has been inspiring my inner poet….a little something different on mcg today….   Today I drove through a snowstorm.   A white-out, they call it, where nothing exists beyond the muting cloak of snow, that is wondrous and sedate   and terrifying in equal parts. The car...

Rough Nights

Rough Nights

I once thought that the sleepless part of parenting belonged to the first few months of our baby’s life. Now between sickness, teething, growth spurts, and nightmares, I wonder if I’ll ever be able to enjoy seven hours of uninterrupted sleep again. Last fall, we think our toddler had her first nightmare. She came crying to...

Thanks to Sprout for sponsoring this post. Create YOUR holiday MOMent with Sprout! When I look back on holiday pictures from my childhood, happy smiles usually shine out at me from the little square (oddly Instagram-ish) pictures. With just 24 pictures per roll, you had to be picky, right? Now that I am a Mom, I love that I have...

We’re Thankful……Right Now

Posted by on Nov 27, 2013 in Be Inspired, Be Whole, Looking In, Mom Perspectives, Things We Love | 0 comments

Tomorrow our nation celebrates Thanksgiving.  Regardless of what traditions you adhere to when it comes to the day, I think we can all agree on the fact that it’s a day where most of us reflect on the blessings that we have in our lives.  Whether it’s been a year of plenty, a year where ends have been a struggle to make meet, a year...

The Practice of Gratitude

Posted by on Oct 16, 2013 in ...through MomColoredGlasses, Mom Perspectives | 0 comments

A couple of nights ago, I ended up in a hot yoga studio for the first time in over a year. The smell, the dry heat, the feeling of my yoga mat under my feet all felt familiar, almost comforting as I sat cross-legged waiting for our first posture. I smiled as she told us to take child’s pose, stretching forward and grounding my forehead on my...

Back to Work {lessons I am learning as a new working mom}

Posted by on Oct 9, 2013 in ...through MomColoredGlasses, Be Informed, Career "Re-Entry" Series, Mom as Manager, Mom Perspectives | 0 comments

 I sat in my office, trying to focus on the stack of exams sitting in front of me. Noisy voices spilled in through the door, as college students congregated outside waiting for their next class to begin. My stomach grumbled, even though I had just come from eating in the cafeteria an hour before. I looked at my watch. It was snack time, but I...

To Madi on her first day of school…

Posted by on Sep 4, 2013 in ...through MomColoredGlasses, MCG Moms | 0 comments

My kids were ecstatic to go back to school this week. Ecstatic. My oldest daughter Madi ran off to her classroom with barely a backward glance, and the other two were hot on her tail. I love that they are excited for school, but it did make me nostalgic for the very first day Madi headed off to full day school. So, I dug a little post out of my...

Being Content…with the Status Quo

Posted by on Jul 31, 2013 in MCG Moms, Mom Perspectives | 1 comment

We almost moved….again. I’m sure that some who know us well (or read my previous post about all our moves) wouldn’t have been surprised by this news. Over the past 11 years that my husband and I have been married we’ve been on the 3 year moving rotation. School, grad school, jobs…what can I say? We embrace...

Top 10 Things We Loved about BlogHer ’13

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 in MCG Moms, Mom Perspectives | 0 comments

This past weekend, we headed to our first BlogHer as a MCG Editorial team. We didn’t really know what to expect from the blogging mega-conference, but everything we read or heard seemed to agree that it was big and overwhelming. Yes, it was big. The venues were big, the speakers had big personalities, and many of the brands represented were...

Boy Mom 101

Dear Karen, Congratulations on the birth of your precious son, Isaac, on May 6th.  Since you have asked me to write a post for MCG during your maternity leave, I thought this would be the perfect time to welcome you into the world of being a “Boy Mom.”  Up ‘til now, you’ve only known a kinder and gentler gender with sweet Ariana. Honey,...
