Parenting is a great gig. If it isn’t, something needs to change.
Your children are capable of falling asleep without you. They are learning new skills all the time; they can learn this too!
Sleep is fundamental. Everything (*literally*) depends on a basic human level of sleep. You think you can power through for months or years without it, but you can’t.

Anything else you care to know? Drop me a line!

When I’m not working, I am a slow trail runner, a sloppy nordic skier, and a bad Crossfitter. I read a lot of romance and fantasy novels (I adore Rainbow Rowell, Maggie Stiefvater, Ilona Andrews, Rachel Smythe, etc.).

I am a political rabble rouser, a terrible housekeeper, and a good friend who has a quality bottle of wine on hand at all times, for emergencies.

I live in Vermont with my husband (who is French and adorable), our two boys, two dogs, and a cat.
