Always On My Mind

Posted by savannahkase on May 19, 2017 in Pregnancy, Research, Woman Power |

We have all heard of “pregnancy brain” and I’m pretty sure it’s been around since before there was science to confirm it. I can imagine ancient cave woman explaining to their partners that they forgot to tend to the fire because they were out hunting for herbs and it completely slipped their minds. Through my […]

Friendsgiving

Posted by savannahkase on December 26, 2016 in Advice, Personal, Research |

As with most things in my life, this post is late, but I still felt it was worth writing.  There are many, many things I love about living in Washington, D.C. (or, since we moved to the ‘burb last year, “the greater D.C. Metro area”).  On a fifth-grade field trip, I fell in love with […]

The Art of Wooing

Posted by savannahkase on March 10, 2016 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Personal, Research |

This week’s Economist featured a fantastic little article about fairy-wren mating practices. Stay with me … Fact: Most males are reluctant to raise another’s children. Fact: Almost half of baby fairy-wrens are cared for by a male bird that is not their biological father. Daniel Baldassarre of Cornell University undertook a study to find out […]

Confident In Me: Part I

Posted by savannahkase on May 13, 2015 in Advice, Parenting, Personal, Research |

“I have confidence in confidence alone … Besides which you see I have confidence in me!” – The Sound of Music From the beginning, I have always been a confident person. My parents still tease me about a second grade choir performance of “Edelweiss” in which I sang a tone-deaf solo loudly and proudly. My […]

Random Rant: Please Vote!

Posted by savannahkase on October 30, 2014 in Advice, Current Events, Parenting, Personal, Research, Woman Power |

I believe that most Americans truly value our democratic system, and yet, we consistently fail to strengthen and uphold that system by supporting democracy’s central tenet – universal, confidential voting. Among members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), average voter turnout is above 70%, with countries like Austria and Italy regularly showing […]

Leading on Leave?

Posted by savannahkase on October 15, 2014 in Current Events, Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy, Research, Second Child, Woman Power, Working Mom |

With my second baby due in just over three months, I have begun to think about my upcoming maternity leave. The idea of having dedicated time to care for and bond with my new baby seemed idyllic before I knew anything about it. Although I consider myself an informed individual, I’ll admit I was shocked […]

My One & Only?

Posted by savannahkase on August 2, 2014 in Parenting, Research, Second Child |

Literally, from the day my son was born (one of my nurses had four kids and was very chatty), people started asking if and when I wanted more children. First of all, why do strangers care what size family I want? It’s not as if we are an aging society, destined to die out within […]

Sign of the Times

Posted by savannahkase on July 6, 2014 in Advice, Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal, Research |

Pre-verbal children using their hands to communicate goes back to the beginning of time and crosses all cultures and continents. It is natural that, once they are old enough to know what they want, need, feel, and see, but do not yet have the verbal skills to express themselves, babies will do whatever they can […]

No Time Like the Present

Posted by savannahkase on June 18, 2014 in Parenting, Research, Working Mom |

When people ask what I do for fun, I usually laugh and say, “Well, I enjoy my job as a litigator, and I love spending time with my husband and toddler, I teach group fitness classes in the evenings, and when I have “free” time I like to do something creative – journal, crochet, bead, […]
