Just a Thought: Momzillas

Posted by savannahkase on August 31, 2013 in Parenting |

We all know one, and probably have to work hard at times not to become one – those annoying moms who know it all, have it all, or opine on it all.  I am posting to share a cute article on The Bump that identifies seven types of annoying moms – including the pack mule mama, the paranoid […]

Random Rant: Problems v. Inconveniences

Posted by savannahkase on August 29, 2013 in Advice, Personal |

I often listen to the radio while I walk to work, but usually my mind is already in office mode, so by the time I arrive, I have forgotten whatever I was listening to. But last week, Mix 107.3 morning DJ, Bert Weiss, said something that stuck with me. It was only a two-minute sound […]

The Empty-Nursery Syndrome

Posted by savannahkase on August 28, 2013 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal |

I vividly remember the moment it hit me that I was about to become a parent. We had received our carefully-selected co-sleeper as a gift back in October, but – as a matter of superstition and practicality – I had forbidden my husband to set it up before I was 38 weeks pregnant. When that […]

Pleasantly Surprised by “Modern Dads”

Posted by savannahkase on August 22, 2013 in Current Events, Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting |

Last night, A&E premiered their new reality show, “Modern Dads,” about four stay-at-home dads in Austin, Texas, and I feel compelled to admit that I kinda sorta liked it.  I was prepared to be annoyed and possibly offended by it, for a number of reasons.  First of all, it bothers me that stay-at-home dads are […]

My Parenting Philosophy

Posted by savannahkase on August 20, 2013 in Parenting, Personal |

Both Latin and Greek use the word philosophia, from philo- (“loving”) and sophia (“knowledge, wisdom”), to denote the “system a person forms for conduct of life.” Today, the Oxford English Dictionary defines “philosophy” as “a theory or attitude held by a person or organization that acts as a guiding principle for behavior.” We all have philosophies […]

Home Alone

Posted by savannahkase on August 18, 2013 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal |

I’d forgotten what silence sounds like.  My husband took my son to meet up with some other guys with babies at a pub, leaving me in a dreadfully empty house. When my husband first asked if it would be okay for him to have some guy time this Sunday, I pouted a bit (I’m usually […]

Baby’s First Boo Boo

Posted by savannahkase on August 15, 2013 in Parenting, Personal |

I have always found it strange that every time I see my mom (three or four times a year), she points out bruises and scrapes on my body and asks how I got them and what I am doing to heal them.  Without fail, I never know how I got banged up, and am usually […]

Lean In, Don’t Be a Pushover

Posted by savannahkase on August 14, 2013 in Advice, Current Events, Working Mom |

I am halfway through Sheryl Sandberg’s much-discussed woman-power tome, Lean In, which – as I expected – is sparking a lot of questions, revelations, and criticisms that will eventually make their way into this blog.  What I did not expect was to like the book as much as I do. I understand the perspective, expressed […]

My Better Half

Posted by savannahkase on August 9, 2013 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Personal, Working Mom |

I am not just a working mom, I am a “breadwinner mom,” one of the 5.1 million (37%) married mothers who have a higher income than their husbands. Unlike most of my peers in this cohort, however, I do not just earn a higher income, I earn the sole income on which our family depends. […]

Nurturing Norms

Posted by savannahkase on August 7, 2013 in Current Events, Parenting, Personal |

It’s the last day of World Breastfeeding Week, and the theme this year is “Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers” with an emphasis on peer counseling, so it seems like a good time to address this all-important topic. World Breastfeeding Week commemorates the WHO/UNICEF Innocenti Declaration of August 1990 to protect, promote and support breastfeeding. I applaud the […]
