Femalities: A Breakdown of SXSW and a Lot of Other Stuff from a Woman's Point of View

Don't know what it is--the fact that I've just emerged from a weekend at SXSW, it was International Women's Day on Friday, I got snubbed by a "prominent" male investor/entrepreneur that in the virtual world I respected, though in person not so much--but I am feeling my womanness of late. And no, guys, it's not because it's that time of the month. If anything, it's the world who's experiencing a hormonal shift. ...more

How Do You Teach Twins About Being Twins?

I remember being fascinated by twins when I was in elementary school, having been introduced to the concept by a friend of our family who gave birth to a set of beautiful twin boys. I wanted a twin. I wanted to be a twin. My parents were glad I wasn't, I can tell you that. Deanna at It's a Crazy Beautiful Life is a mom of twin girls and she is currently trying to figure out how to explain all that is twin to her daughters. It is more complicated than it initially seems! ...more

OMG! I'm A Grandmother!

Johnny Mac Pippin, aka Aiden Samuel, was born at Tripler Army Medical Center on May 15, 2012 at 12:36pm. He weighed a whopping 8lbs and was 21" long. His mother had no drugs and the only assistance was breaking the water 90 minutes before he made his way into the world. Yep. My beautiful, tiny baby birthed a good size baby of her own -- and she did it fabulously. I was in awe of her strength and her determination. Two days later and I'm still in awe. Rockstar. Super Hero. Birthing Goddess. That's my girl!...more

Acceptance and Change: The Evolution of Family Holiday Traditions

It's Christmas time. The holiday season. I get it. But what's sometimes forgotten is that this includes Chanukah. Or as some know it, "the festival of lights." Or, as kids, we in the tribe knew it as eight guaranteed presents! It's such a cliche but, compared to the pomp and pageantry of Christmas, the festival of lights kind of blew. However, as an adult, I've come to dig the ceremonial candle lighting, now that I finally understand the meaning of Chanukah. (It was pretty lost on me until I had to explain it to my boyfriend's son.) And now, as the Girlfriend Mom, I spread the guaranteed eight presents tradition to the kids....more

Moms Clean Air Force: I'm Getting Involved for Olive

I don’t know the exact day, but it was sometime last year, when I was in my third trimester of pregnancy, and I noticed it—the air I breathe. I was driving to work and sitting in traffic. I realized that I’d forgotten to press the recirculation button on my air conditioning console; I could smell the sour breath of the exhaust from the car in front of me and I panicked. All these years that I’ve commuted to work, listened to loud music, and lived in some of the most polluted urban locales, I never thought twice about air quality. But on this particular day I was terrified, because I had a growing life inside of me who would be sharing the air. The thought of her breathing it in made me sick. ...more
