Tortured Bliss

Posted by savannahkase on May 27, 2017 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal, Second Child |

It is the best of times, it is the most exhausting of times. Those first few days and weeks home with a new baby are never quite the fairytale we anticipate, or that we see on diaper commercials. Even those of us who have been through it once – or twice – before suffer from “mother’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sugar, (Hold the) Spice, & Everything (Mostly) Nice

Posted by savannahkase on November 23, 2014 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy, Second Child |

It is common knowledge that every pregnancy – like every child – is distinct, and yet, with nothing but prior experience as a frame of reference, I found it difficult to imagine what would be different this time around. [Please note, although I often try to back up my observations with actual science and research, […]

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 […]

You Heard It Here First

Posted by savannahkase on September 23, 2014 in Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy, Second Child |

It’s official – my family will be welcoming a new addition early next year. Exactly when our bundle of joy will arrive is uncertain, as I was still breastfeeding regularly when we conceived so had not had a period in over two years. That was the first interesting lesson to come out of Round 2 […]

These Are the Days We’ll Remember

Posted by savannahkase on February 4, 2014 in Parenting, Personal |

In the year since my son was born, I have received more advice than ever before in my adult life. Always well-intentioned, the parenting advice has come from family, friends, colleagues, and strangers and has ranged from the obvious (“your life will never be the same”) to the absurd (“get on several preschool waiting lists […]

Mythbuster: New Baby

Posted by savannahkase on January 29, 2014 in Advice, Parenting |

This past week had me reminiscing on bringing my son home from the hospital one year ago. At the time, I was not worried because I’d done my research on newborns – I’d read dozens of articles and a handful of books, plus I’d polled my friends and family who had lived the new baby […]

Happy First Birthday!

Posted by savannahkase on January 20, 2014 in Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy |

My friend and fellow mommy-blogger recently posted (on her blog at Mama Instincts) a gorgeous letter to her daughter to mark her baby’s first birthday, which inspired me to do the same. Carolina, mimicry is the most sincere form of flattery, so I hope you won’t mind if today, the anniversary of my son’s birth, I follow […]

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 […]
