Is it ok to be totally in love with your kid? Cuz I am. She’s almost three, and talking up a storm. A few days ago, she was telling us about a boy she’d just seen at the library. She said, “He got frustrated because his sister was using the computer and he wanted to.” […]

  More on night weaning:   Of course, it helps that my daughter is now 2 years old (and 4 months) and can actually understand some reason. She’s a big talker. So one of the things I accidentally did right, early on, was getting into the habit of only breastfeeding in one spot. Just one. The […]

So, I still look at families who have decided to have more than one child (let’s save the fact they were able to have a choice for another day) and I wonder how the hell they’re doing it.  Here’s what I’m guessing: They have a fuckton of family and friends who support them and actually […]

  So, my daughter is … (I’m losing count)…. 2 years and 4 months old. She’s a really cool human.
