So if you see something totally random pop up as a post, you'll know who the #1 suspect is.
And he looks so innocent!
Finish preparing for a home birth (and complete everything on my pre-birth to-do list)
Practice a couple self-hypnosis strategies for relaxing during the birth
Pick-up and organize the house just enough to help me feel comfortable giving birth at home and spending a couple weeks recovering here post-partum
Use the babysitting co-op to go on more dates with Matt
Take it easy!
There are more than 4,000 private Montessori schools in our country and only 200 hundred public ones. And yet several members of the creative elite attribute their success to their Montessori backgrounds, such as the founders of Google, Amazon, Wikipedia. The quality of our educational experiences should not be determined by our parents' incomes. I'm Sara Cotner, class of 1999. I dare to create public Montessori charter schools nationwide.

My husband and I are now expecting our first child (we found out it's a girl yesterday!) and I was hoping to get more of a real-life perspective on the cloth-diapering system. My husband and I don't seem to have any friends in the area that have done cloth diapering--in fact, they actually look at us like we're a little crazy when we mention that it's something we're interested in. (Can you tell we've had a difficult time finding like-minded friends after we moved?) Anyway, everywhere I look online is mainly about selling the product, and I'd just like a more realistic view of the whole ordeal.

Rinse the lentils, drain and put in a deep pot. Add turmeric and 4 cups of water and bring to the boil. Turn down to simmer and cook the lentils partially covered. Stir occasionally to keep lentils from sticking to the bottom, until tender, about 25 minutes. For added creaminess, cook and stir another 5 minutes. When the consistency is like pea soup, stir in the salt. Heat and stir before serving.

Absolutely love your child with every ounce of who you are. Honor their little spirits and tend to their needs. Do all that you can to foster secure attachment. But for the sake of your own emotional and physical well-being — don’t put yourself on a shelf in the process. Don’t do it!! If you’re like me, you mistakenly believe that if you give to yourself it means your child will suffer. That you won’t be giving to them. And you can drive yourself to the brink in the name of intended Love and Devotion. You really can. In the long run, no child benefits from a sick or unhappy mother!!
