My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

Friday Updates


  • No closing yet.

  • I still have dandelion greens left. Juicing them with carrots and apples wasn't bad. I must leave the celery out of the juice and it does taste ok. John even likes it.

  • John cooked steak tonight. Scott didn't touch it because I planned a healthy dinner and John didn't clear his plans with me. Scott sticks up for my meals (most of the time). Scott's in the photo with a castle he made out of the Math-U-See manipulatives. He got his long hair cut off this week.

  • Scott has been listening to Harry Potter on CD. That gives me a break from reading out loud. Our library has the whole series on tape. He's up to The Goblet of Fire.

  • William is reading the Twilight Series. He is almost done with the 4th book. Now do I have to worry about him dating a teen age vampiress and choosing to become one himself.

  • I've got a few books of my own I'm flipping through. I'd really like to read them all cover-to-cover (and share more thoughts about them). Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn, Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew, Making More Milk by Diana West IBCLC and Lisa Mascaro MA IBCLC.

  • On Sunday I am the designated "volunteer mother" at Temple during class hours. My main job is to bring drinks a 10am snack for 60 kids and then whatever else they need me for that morning. I got some honest kids juice pouches (No HFCS) and a case of bananas. Don't even ask me what parents usually bring; It's disgusting what parents bring for a Sunday morning snack. I'll probably be remembered.

  • David does not attend Sunday class and he is looking forward to being picked up by Mary for the morning. I told Mary she can take him to church. Ironic isn't it, that there is no accommodation for David at the Temple while I volunteer? So he's going to church instead? Before I rant too much, Mary is probably going to treat and spoil him, and not take him to church after all.

  • What's David reading? That's a good question. Is he going to be a natural reader? You'd think by 5 1/2 a natural reader would be showing some definite signs of naturally learning. Hmmm... I've been thinking about this and learning what to look for so he doesn't fall behind.
  • The boys have some celebrations to look forward to in May. Awards night at Temple. A Friend's Bar Mitzvah on another weekend; They are really looking forward to dressing up for this. I have to get them shirts and shoes. Finally they will have a belt test in karate at the end of the month.

Wow, you've got a lot going on! Do you have a closing date yet? We're still waiting on a closing date, hopefully soon!

Square Foot Gardening is a good resource. We used it as the model for our raised garden. It has worked really well (okay, except for the Japanese Beetles that decided it was an ideal nursery, the grubs are so destructive!). In the future I'm going to look for alternatives to vermiculite and peat moss that are more environmentally friendly.
