Part 1 – Our strabismus burden Everyone loves baby photos! Those sweet cheeks and big, bright eyes… who could resist?! When my daughter turned five months old, we knew she was undeniably cute, but something was off. There was something...
I write about motherhood as an access point to the soul. Motherhood was the thing that cracked me open for the first time and exposed all my vulnerabilities. There was no hiding the unfamiliar, the learning curve of caring...
There’s one part of every kid birthday party I hate: the food part. It’s always pizza and cake, and usually my son doesn’t care that he can’t have any. He eats his meal before the party, and I bring his...
