I’m a Vegetarian But My Kid Isn’t

I played softball growing up. Sometimes we’d have late evening games, and would have to get dinner on the way home.  I remember sitting in Arby’s one night, after winning a game, and having a roast beef and cheddar sandwich. I was thirteen. I’d taken a bite and suddenly it dawned on me that I [...]

Gear for Baby 2 - Reusing

Our photographer, Leeann, surprised my husband and me by putting us in front of the camera, too. Neither of us were dressed for the occasion or prepared, but they are some of our [...]


choosing a name
