Driving in the car. Talking, as we do, about whatever’s on their minds. Somehow we end up here: GIRL POWERS: But mom, how do you REALLY get a baby in your tummy? An aside: so far we’ve been very detailed and anatomically correct about what’s going on with Baby Powers as she grows inside me. We […]
One of my very favorite bloggers is Rebecca Woolf of Girl’s Gone Child. She’s a stupid-awesome writer and LA mom of four, and last year she wrote a post about baby names when she was pregnant with twin girls.

He’s also metaphorical, which is a good thing because I’m not supposed to be riding horses while pregnant. Right. You may not have known that. Hmmm, […]
Midway through our Portland trip last month, we drove to a state park near Salem to meet my aunt and a few cousins for a picnic. After lunch we walked through a grove of Filbert trees to the pebbled shore of the Willamette River, wide and unthreatening and perfect for the kids. The water was […]
