Oh, the Humanity

We arrived home last night after bedtime. We were pretty much on the road the¬†entire¬†day, leaving the Philly suburbs at 10 in the morning, driving straight to visit my grandmother at the nursing home 90-minutes away, and then spending the rest of the day and into the night staring at break lights on the . . . → Read More: Oh, the Humanity

On the Road Again

We’re getting ready to travel for Thanksgiving. Last year, my big concerns involved making it through our road trip without my baby crying too much–he’s never liked car travel.

Nursing Through A Flight Debacle

Whenever I fly in January, I am reminded of the Blizzard of 2010, when I flew home from California to discover the East Coast was buried under many feet of snow and my 6-month-old and I got stuck in Ohio.

Actually, I learned about the mess when we landed in Chicago, where I was . . . → Read More: Nursing Through A Flight Debacle

Breastfeeding Blog Hop: Roadtrips and Breastfeeding

Neither of my babies tolerated the car while they were little. I felt truly cheated out of a sure-fire way to soothe fussy babies, since both of mine worked themselves into a proper lather the moment I turned on the engine. Since my husband and I are both transplants to Pittsburgh, we take a . . . → Read More: Breastfeeding Blog Hop: Roadtrips and Breastfeeding
