Party Pooper

Posted by savannahkase on March 5, 2016 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Personal |

I have very fond memories of my childhood birthday parties. My parents weren’t religious, so birthdays were our primary holidays and they were a big deal. By contrast, my husband grew up in a family where birthdays were marked with a single gift and special meal, rather than the extended celebrations and “princess treatment” that […]

Borrowed Time

Posted by savannahkase on July 19, 2015 in Parenting, Personal, Second Child, Uncategorized, Work/Life Balance |

It is as rare as a solar eclipse, and just as fleeting.  It is as sought after as an Italian white truffle and guarded like an embarrassing secret.  Any parent of more than one small child will tell you, when both/all kids nap at the same time, a euphoric schizophrenia sets in.  What to do […]

Apologies

Posted by savannahkase on June 18, 2015 in Current Events, Parenting, Personal, Second Child, Uncategorized, Work/Life Balance, Working Mom |

These past few months have challenged me physically, emotionally, financially, psychologically, and socially, and “a new normal” is not in sight yet. The stress of having a baby, buying a car, hunting for and purchasing our first home, and moving, while also working full-time and breastfeeding exclusively, have forced me to focus on just putting […]

Growing up, I loved Christmas. I suspect most kids do, and for mostly the same reasons.

The Hard Work of Homemaking

Posted by savannahkase on October 13, 2013 in Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Working Mom |

Public opinion polls rarely result in shocking conclusions, and yet, they can be fascinating for the insights they provide into questions that might not otherwise be openly discussed or quantified. The newest study by the Pew Research Center is a perfect example. The headline is so obvious as to be laughable: “Parents’ Time with Kids […]

Random Rant: Problems v. Inconveniences

Posted by savannahkase on August 29, 2013 in Advice, Personal |

I often listen to the radio while I walk to work, but usually my mind is already in office mode, so by the time I arrive, I have forgotten whatever I was listening to. But last week, Mix 107.3 morning DJ, Bert Weiss, said something that stuck with me. It was only a two-minute sound […]
