We are working diligently to raise them into thoughtful, caring, resilient people, and when I see them thriving and doing good in the Read more

And, on the breastfeeding bit, check and see if your health insurance provides for a lactation consultant (they should under the ACA) and find one before you have the baby.

This. Call it whatever you want — the ability to breathe and focus your mind through pain WORKS. I sort of figured some of it out on my own as a way to manage asthma symptoms when I couldn’t get to my rescue inhaler right away—a combination of slow, counted breathing and learning to find and release areas of tension Read more

This. Thrift and consignment are the wave of the future. I recently decided to give up new clothes a la Jane Fonda and with internet thrift sites like ThredUp, The Real Real etc, it wasn’t even hard!
