My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

US Olympic Boogie Board Team





These guys have an important message about sun protection. They hate sunscreen and that's why they cover up. Big Will always wears a T-shirt and the other guys always keep their spring suits on. They do all their practicing in the early morning hours before the sun has a chance to come over the houses. All three have worn spring suits since babies. That little one on the right has one just his size, but he likes wearing the larger suit now that he's BIG and doesn't need a baby floaty to swim.

When the team is out in the middle of the day, even with their dark natural coloring, we insist on hats, sunglasses, and Mustela sunscreen (doesn't was off in the water and uses a mineral base, safe enough for babies*). Well, they do put up a fight: "He has my hat," "He broke my glasses, " " You got it in my eye, WAHHHHHH!" But we try.

The boys look like a lot of fun!

Funny post I enjoyed it very much! It is nice to see the boys always enjoying each other so much! I like the photo of Scott helping David on the boogie board! And even a great message about sun protection to boot! I don't know if you have this problem but people are always asking me in a scolding tone if I put sunscreen on my child because of his naturally dark skin tone even though I take every precaution possible!
