I’m Not (Just) Tired!

Posted by savannahkase on November 14, 2017 in Parenting, Personal, Work/Life Balance, Working Mom |

Many things change upon becoming a parent, but among the most profound is one’s relationship to sleep. However you previously felt about the inherent human need for rest, having children alters that dramatically – at least for a few years (I’ve heard it gets better, but my oldest is nearly five and my youngest is […]

Leaving

Posted by savannahkase on July 18, 2017 in Personal, Second Child, Work/Life Balance, Working Mom |

Yesterday, I saw a deer in the road. She was standing still, right in the middle of the road as a queue of cars formed behind her. As I was beginning to worry that she was confused, a young fawn appeared from the brush by the side of the road. His mother held her crossing […]

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 […]

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 […]

Is Pregnancy a Disability?

Posted by savannahkase on January 13, 2015 in Current Events, Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy, Woman Power, Work/Life Balance, Working Mom |

Does being pregnant entitle someone to special treatment? I think most would unequivocally agree that yes, a healthy young man should give up his seat on the bus to a visibly pregnant woman, and it is courteous (although not yet required by social etiquette) to allow a pregnant woman in urinary distress to cut to […]

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 […]

7 Facts About Me

Posted by savannahkase on August 30, 2014 in Personal |

The newest chain-game in the blogosphere (much easier than the ice bucket challenge) involves one blogger nominating another to share seven facts about him or herself. I’m not sure how it got started, but I’d suspect it was motivated by the fact that blog followers may feel they “know” their favorite bloggers based on posts […]

Working 9-to-5

Posted by savannahkase on November 24, 2013 in Personal, Woman Power, Working Mom |

I slept in on Friday (thanks to my superhero husband – love you, honey!), so sidled into my office un-showered around 9:30am. Before I had even logged onto my computer, my boss appeared in my doorway and asked if I would join him for a coffee. He said he was concerned about my work hours […]

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 […]
