Advice to a New Mom: Just DON’T

Posted by savannahkase on August 22, 2017 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy |

Dear J, We have been friends since before we were born; our fathers’ bond bringing us together long before we had a say in such matters. We have always lived hundreds of miles apart, but our mutual affection kept as close as we navigated the unartful process of growing up in parallel, even when we […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

What It Means to Go “Back to Work”

Posted by savannahkase on July 29, 2013 in Advice, Working Mom |

A dear friend (thinking of you, Lisa!) returned to work last week, a colleague is coming back on Wednesday (can’t wait to see you, Liviya!), and a longtime friend has just left her job for maternity leave in anticipation of the imminent birth of her first child (hang in there, Jordana!), so I have been thinking […]
