Growing Pains – Part II

Posted by savannahkase on June 9, 2016 in Lessons From Little Ones, Personal, Second Child, Work/Life Balance |

I am all too aware that my babies are quickly growing up into little kids (see Growing Pains). It seems like almost every day they can do something new, and they are increasingly asserting themselves as independent people (which terrifies me).  I spend far less time considering my own growth.  While it is easy to […]

A Dozen Things I Forgot About Having a Newborn

Posted by savannahkase on March 10, 2015 in Lessons From Little Ones, Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal, Second Child |

It was only two years ago that I first became a mother, yet it feels like much longer. Before my son was born, I read parenting books and websites voraciously, discussed child-rearing principles with my husband at length, and solicited advice from family and friends.

“Harder Than You Can Imagine”

That’s what everyone warned me about having a second child from the moment I announced my pregnancy. It is also pretty much the worst advice I have ever been given. Telling me that I cannot even conceive of how difficult it will be to care for two kids does nothing to help me prepare me […]

Posted by savannahkase on October 21, 2014 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy, Second Child |

If you were expecting a post about sex during pregnancy – I’m sorry, my parents read this blog! [But the Preggie Pals have an amusing take on that.] I mean the sex of my baby, more commonly referred to as its “gender” (perhaps because we are somewhat uncomfortable discussing the “sex” of a child created […]

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 […]

My One & Only?

Posted by savannahkase on August 2, 2014 in Parenting, Research, Second Child |

Literally, from the day my son was born (one of my nurses had four kids and was very chatty), people started asking if and when I wanted more children. First of all, why do strangers care what size family I want? It’s not as if we are an aging society, destined to die out within […]
