My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

Carrie, had a great idea!

We made piles and piles of latkes also! I know you are dying to know when these boys opened their presents up see previous post). The first night of Hanukkah they opened a present from John and I.
The next night we are finally at my mothers and we made the latkes with her. I like that this year in my mother's house the focus was on Hanukkah and not on trees and December 25th. But I didn't know it would be like this beforehand. I like that we can share making the latkes together. Her cooking focuses on taste and budget. My food preparation (don't always cook, per say) has been focused on meticulous nutrition and organic. Years past I never entered the kitchen. We are sharing our opposite perspectives. The sharing is what I like. I don't need "gifts" for myself. I'd prefer not any at all. The boys opened presents from my Mom on the 2nd night and got some gelt.


The third night we were in the Magic Kingdom of all places. My spoiled rotten, xbox and weapon loving kids loved it ( I had my doubts if they would appreciate it). They never should a sign of being bored or tired (just hungry). What a nice present for them! There is more gifts too (they are making out like bandits this year).

Tonight we are heading to John's mother's. She celebrates "Christmas Eve." There is going to be a ton of people at her house tonight and then everyone goes home. Some people I barely know. And tomorrow will be a quiet day. Finally.

Glad that I had a great idea.. we are having company tonight and doing it all over again.. I am excited....

The photos look great and I am happy to know that it seems to have been fun and not to stressful for all...

I don't wish you were necessarily in the snow, but I do wish we could all be together. Someday we will.
