Not-So-Guilty Pleasures

Posted by savannahkase on September 22, 2016 in Personal, Work/Life Balance |

Forgive me, in advance, for this brief rant about my frustration with our American need to feel guilty about things that bring us pleasure.  I’m not talking about activities that could hurt yourself or someone else – adultery, violence, gossip, stalking, etc.  Rather, I mean those people who always say, “My Sunday evening bath 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 […]

Mom Guilt

Posted by savannahkase on April 23, 2014 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal, Working Mom |

“Mom guilt is the phrase of the day,” wrote Jamee Tenzer on her Momiverse blog last week. Of all the pressures women face – as daughters, professionals, friends, students, athletes, artists, wives, politicians, etc. – it seems that we are most affected by our role as mother. Of course, I feel bad when I cannot attend a […]

Feeling Good For Nothing

Posted by savannahkase on October 10, 2013 in Advice, Current Events, Personal, Working Mom |

I have been feeling particularly useless lately.  I am my family’s sole breadwinner, but the federal government shutdown means that I cannot work and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it.  And how have I used my eight unplanned vacation days?  Visiting and spending time with my friends and family (clearly, not blogging […]

Guilt By Expectation

Posted by savannahkase on October 3, 2013 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Personal, Working Mom |

As he headed out to do some errands sans baby this morning, I announced to my husband, “By the time you get back, we will both be dressed, fed, and packed for our trip tomorrow, plus, the baby will have napped and I will have done at the laundry.” When my husband returned, about an […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Mommy Monday Blues

Posted by savannahkase on August 5, 2013 in Personal, Working Mom |

Okay, so I know working moms aren’t the only ones who dread Mondays, but I propose that the “Monday Blues” are different for mothers. I have never been the type to drag myself out of bed on a Monday, wishing it was already Friday, or at least, still Sunday. For one thing, I try hard […]
