Take a Break
Finding respite in Copenhagen isn’t difficult, especially in the summer. This is a city that isn’t urban or high-rise, so it rarely feels overwhelming. It’s the capital of a culture that places great weight both on the natural world and its maritime roots, which means that in Copenhagen you’re never far from water or from ...

Dealing with teenage negativity. Tips please!
Easton will turn 13 next month, and in perfect timing, he is beginning to act like a teenager. Suddenly, it seems that I can't do anything right, and he feels compelled to complain about everything: The specific t-shirt he wants to wear isn't clean. We're not leaving on time; we'll definitely be late. The music in ...

What chores do you give your kids?
Growing up, my siblings and I had loads of chores. Beyond the usual daily chores, my dad even assigned bigger project-based chores for us to do, especially in the summer time when we were home from school. He believed we should be kept busy working and helping around the house.  We were given chores like ...

Baby gender, orgasmic births and other unsolicited pregnancy advice
I have always really enjoyed the social aspect of pregnancy. I love that a baby bump seems to break down barriers between people, making it easier for strangers to strike up conversation. Pregnancy provides an easy talking point, and one that many people can relate to and enjoy speaking about. Personally, I love talking about ...

Over the past ten months of our travels, Michael and I have fallen into a bad habit. We try to encourage Marlow to walk wherever we go, but she never gets far before asking (and then demanding...) to be carried.

Until this week, Marlow couldn't swim. In fact, she was never really enthusiastic about getting in the water and when she did, she wore floaties to keep her afloat.

Crying it out. When is enough, enough?
Earlier this week, while camped at a beautiful beach on the Coromandel Peninsula here in New Zealand, we encountered a situation that has whirled around in my head ever since.
