My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

LOVE expressed by 2 four year olds

This memory has always been a favorite conversation with my oldest son:

As my son turned four years old, I was concerned that he was accumulating too many material gifts. I wanted him to enjoy what he was given, but I also wanted to teach him what was most important. After turning the lights out one evening, I asked him, “William, do you know what the most important gift of all is?”

Without a hesitation he stunned me, “Love," he said. I was very proud of him as we cuddled. He thought about my question a little more and then said, “Mom, breastfeeding is love,” and he nursed to sleep.

I was reminded of it this morning. My youngest son who is four expressed his love through a knock-knock joke.

David: Knock-knock
Mom: Who's there?
David: David
Mom: David who?
David: David who loves you!
