Slippers and Stilettos: Separating the Personal & Professional

Posted by savannahkase on September 27, 2013 in Parenting, Personal, Working Mom |

When my colleague forgot her breastmilk storage bags this morning (“mommy brain” is a real thing, and persists months after childbirth), I immediately called my husband to ask him to bring some by my office. We live a few blocks away and I have dozens of storage bags. Plus, I always love an excuse to […]

Am I Too Attached? Mom Enough?

Posted by savannahkase on September 24, 2013 in Parenting, Working Mom |

Back in February, some dear friends asked my husband and I how we would feel if they had a kid-free wedding in September. Our son was only a few weeks old at the time, but we assured our friends that by the time their wedding came around, we would be happy to leave him with […]

Mythbuster: Pregnancy

Posted by savannahkase on September 18, 2013 in Advice, Pregnancy |

Given how prevalent it is in the movies, on TV, in books and magazines, in my workplace, and within my (large) extended family, I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about pregnancy when I found out I was expecting. Being the scholarly type, however, I decided to get a few (read – two dozen) books so […]

Random Rant: Kid-pliments

Posted by savannahkase on September 11, 2013 in Parenting, Personal |

I have a hard time accepting compliments about my kid. Admittedly, I have struggled to accept compliments about myself, as well, but I am getting better at hearing and appreciating them. After all, I worked hard on that research project, so why not enjoy the praise? For the most part, however, I had nothing (or […]

Faith, Hope, & Love

Posted by savannahkase on September 9, 2013 in Parenting, Personal |

My husband, son, and I went to a street festival yesterday with some of our new-parent friends and, after maneuvering our strollers around the food booths, performance stages, and craft stalls for a couple hours, we agreed it was time to get out of the chaotic crowds. By the time we had gathered four couples […]

Children v. Career

Posted by savannahkase on September 6, 2013 in Personal, Working Mom |

This is the kind of post I set out to write when I started this blog, but the topic is so immense that it is impossible to do in 400-600 words. Rather than keep putting it off, or arbitrarily chopping it into two shorter pieces, I have left it as one long post on the […]

Grand-Childing

Posted by savannahkase on September 5, 2013 in Parenting, Personal |

The best mothers become Grand-Mothers … and the really wonderful ones become Great-Grandmothers. It is remarkable to me, in an era where medical advances and smarter choices are enabling people to live longer than ever, how little interaction I have with “elderly” people. As I have grown up, the “elderly” categorization has shifted, but has […]

Dear SuperDad

Posted by savannahkase on September 2, 2013 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Personal |

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.”  -Henry Ford Happy Labor Day!  I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the hardest working guy I know – my beloved husband. My husband and I are both strong believers in gratitude as an attitude (sounds corny, I know, but […]
