Be Silent and Listen

Posted by savannahkase on July 1, 2019 in Uncategorized |

Did you know “listen” has the same letter as “silent”? It’s no secret that to truly listen you need to stop talking, but that can be very difficult for a chatty extrovert like myself. In order to connect with my introverted, highly-sensitive son, however, that’s exactly what I am learning to do. My eldest child […]

A Whole New World

Posted by savannahkase on January 30, 2019 in Uncategorized |

I started this blog as a new mom, in a new job that suited my desire for flexibility and family time, but that I did not find meaningful or fulfilling. This tension between my professional aspirations and my new family priorities was a major impetus for this blog. If I was no longer defined by […]

Clabballaborative Story

Posted by savannahkase on June 3, 2018 in Uncategorized |

One of the ways our family likes to pass the time when we are traveling is to tell collaborative stories. We each take turns adding a sentence until we agree the tale is complete. The narration tends to be fast-moving, but this time I did my best to keep up so I could record this […]

Happy 4th of July!

Posted by savannahkase on July 4, 2016 in Uncategorized |

I have always felt blessed to have been born an American, and to be a beneficiary of the best this great country has to offer – beautiful landscapes, decent public schools, a diverse population, the ability to travel the world, and seemingly endless educational and employment opportunities.  I realize, of course, that not everyone is […]

Parent Training

Posted by savannahkase on March 18, 2016 in Advice, Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Uncategorized |

For months, my husband and I – along with our parents, pediatrician, friends, and some random strangers – have been telling our son (who recently turned 3) that “big boys use the potty” in an effort to get him on board with potty training. We do not believe in using force, coercion, or shame to […]

Happy Hectic-Days!

Posted by savannahkase on December 11, 2015 in Current Events, Lessons From Little Ones, Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Uncategorized |

I have always loved the holidays. Really, what’s not to love? Good food, time with family and friends, vacations, shiny decorations, presents, holiday parties, Christmas carols . . . peace, joy, and love all around, right? This year, for the first time in my life, I am beginning to see the other side of Christmas […]

Growing Pains

Posted by savannahkase on November 8, 2015 in Lessons From Little Ones, Personal, Uncategorized, Work/Life Balance, Working Mom |

Several times in the last few weeks, my husband and I have woken up to a pitiful whimpering from our son’s bedroom.  He cries that his legs hurt, and writhes in pain.  “It’s just growing pains,” my husband assures me, as he stumbles back to bed. They may not indicate that anything is wrong with […]

Life Designs

Posted by savannahkase on October 27, 2015 in Personal, Uncategorized, Work/Life Balance |

At a recent alumni event, I was drawn to a seminar titled: “Designing Your Life: What Do You Want To Be (When You Grow Up)?” I expected the room to be filled with recent graduates, wondering how to use their impressive credentials to make a living, as well as a few mid-career professionals looking to […]

Borrowed Time

Posted by savannahkase on July 19, 2015 in Parenting, Personal, Second Child, Uncategorized, Work/Life Balance |

It is as rare as a solar eclipse, and just as fleeting.  It is as sought after as an Italian white truffle and guarded like an embarrassing secret.  Any parent of more than one small child will tell you, when both/all kids nap at the same time, a euphoric schizophrenia sets in.  What to do […]

Independence is Over-Rated

Posted by savannahkase on July 8, 2015 in Advice, Parenting, Personal, Uncategorized, Woman Power, Work/Life Balance, Working Mom |

I’ve been thinking a lot about independence lately. As a synonym for “self-determination,” independence seems like a worthy aspiration for any individual or entity. Every child struggles to demonstrate self-sufficiency; even my toddler vehemently declares “I do it” when there is no chance he can carry the heavy grocery bag or fix a broken toy. […]
