My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

Give-away winners announced

Thank you to everyone who entered and thanks for your comments. I suspected that the breastfeeding related posts may be some of your favorites, but now I know for sure. I'll definitely be giving some homeschool updates soon. All my boys activities are fun and educational, but I will post more about our more formal activites and progress. I appreciate Kelly's comment (below)because sometimes I even wonder if my own personal extended breastfeeding blog entries can reach younger mothers. Even if they don't (but I am glad it did) I like perserving my thoughts for myown record.

I decided to let each of my boys pick a name!

William picked Trish the Dish

"I love reading about breastfeeding and baby wearing. It helps me feel more prepared for what is coming any day now!"

Scott picked Kelly

"My favorite thing I read on your blog was about how you are still breastfeeding your oldest and not sure how much he is actually getting but you pointed out that breastfeeding satisfies more needs than just nutritional. I really needed to hear that the day I read it - and today. I'm struggling with my milk supply but don't want to give up the breastfeeding bond just yet. I've stuck with it this long, and I'm determined to make it through yet another obstacle. Oh, and I would love to read your book. Your insight has been much appreciated!"

David picked doctorjen

"I especially enjoy posts about your practice and clients - they give me ideas about the ideal type of practice I would like to have. I also realy enjoy your posts on homeschooling and all the discussion on dyslexia gave me some ideas for helping my youngest child (who I don't think is really dyslexic but was having some issues learning to read and you at least inspired me to look for ways to help her.)"

Feel free to post comment, but please send me your mailing address privately to

I will be mailing each of you a copy of Permission to Mother! It is filled with stories of me working through birth and breastfeeding issues.

So how do I send you my address without it being published over the internet? I guess you could write your email in a comment on my blog and I won't publish it. Then I could email you my address.
