My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

First Day as Black Belts

When Scott saw William come out of the bathroom in his new black gee he was amazed, "OMG!You look like Hanshi!" After class, William says that you are treated like royalty from the peewees and the other black belts. We noticed previously, by observing the other black belts, that their instructors respect black belt status very much and you no longer got picked on. William found this to be true. Scott said he felt like he was at the beginning, the bottom of the black belts and only beginning.Black belts sit at the front of the class. And you can see David with his bright shiny new green belt. I think he is excited that he can see William and Scott now. And mutually I think the older boys like being positioned so they can keep an eye on David. The four new black belts with stiff new gees are lined up with their instructor leading class.
Black belts demonstrate the techniques to the rest of the class. For all you who are wondering about rank. In one year William and Scott can earn first degree. Two years after that you get second degree, three more years you get third degree and so on.... Hanshi, the teacher of teachers is a 1oth degree and 200 :) years wise.

Announcement: I can begin moving boxes tomorrow to our new house!
