Growing Pains – Part II

Posted by savannahkase on June 9, 2016 in Lessons From Little Ones, Personal, Second Child, Work/Life Balance |

I am all too aware that my babies are quickly growing up into little kids (see Growing Pains). It seems like almost every day they can do something new, and they are increasingly asserting themselves as independent people (which terrifies me).  I spend far less time considering my own growth.  While it is easy to […]

Mom = Me?

Posted by savannahkase on May 4, 2016 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal, Working Mom |

Last week I had lunch with an old friend.  Our dads were childhood friends, so she and I were basically buddies from birth.  Although we lived in different states, our families got together every year for the week of Thanksgiving, so she and I grew up, if not together, in somewhat parallel lives.  We played […]

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 Birthday, (Not So) Baby!

Posted by savannahkase on January 21, 2016 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal |

  Three years ago today, my life changed forever with the birth of my son.  He made me a mother on January 20, 2013, but every day since he has made me a better person.  I have painstakingly taught him to count and to dress himself, but he has taught me to how to brush […]

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 […]

A Dozen Things I Forgot About Having a Newborn

Posted by savannahkase on March 10, 2015 in Lessons From Little Ones, Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal, Second Child |

It was only two years ago that I first became a mother, yet it feels like much longer. Before my son was born, I read parenting books and websites voraciously, discussed child-rearing principles with my husband at length, and solicited advice from family and friends. When my son arrived, my husband and I felt as […]

From Dawn Into Darkness

Posted by savannahkase on February 23, 2015 in Lessons From Little Ones, Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Pregnancy, Second Child, Woman Power |

My long-awaited baby girl, who we named Aurora (“Goddess of the Dawn”), arrived with the sun two weeks ago. The week leading up to her birth presented physical and emotional challenges I had not anticipated, but the two weeks since she was born have been more difficult than I could have imagined. I want to […]

2 Infinity & Beyond!

Posted by savannahkase on January 24, 2015 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal |

My baby boy turned two years old this week.  It’s the ultimate cliche to say that time flies, but with kids, the passage of time is all the more noticeable.  Over the past year, my son has transformed from a teetering baby to a confident little boy, eager to explore the world around him and […]

The Price of Love

Posted by savannahkase on December 24, 2014 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy |

“Grief is the price of love.” – Queen Elizabeth II, after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks I considered writing a Christmas Eve post about the magic of this season – with its benevolent Santa Claus, mischievous Elf on the Shelf, gift-giving of all kinds, nostalgic music, sweet treats, and general atmosphere of goodwill and […]
