Crib notes: You know you’re in EDH update

It’s been fun hearing from readers since the last Crib Notes was published, adding things to the You know you’re in EDH if…list. If you recall, I couldn’t help starting a list since we moved here more than 14 years ago because so many things are unique to El Dorado Hills alone. I appreciate your […]

Crib notes: You know you’re from EDH if …

I’m 100 miles from where I grew up in the Bay Area, but in the 14 years since we started our family in El Dorado Hills I’ve thought a lot about what makes where a person lives unique. For me it was things like hiking Mt. Diablo, water skiing in the Delta and living near […]

Crib notes: The sweet spots of growing pains

When my youngest child was 9-months-old she arched her back and turned away, refusing to nurse even one more time from that moment on. She went from nursing three to four times a day to nothing, just like that. I had this inexplicable and ridiculous sounding feeling that she didn’t need me anymore and I […]

Crib Notes: Take me out to the ball game

By the time this column publishes, we will know who our new president is. Regardless of the outcome, divisions in the country run deep. There were moments during the election season I felt so disheartened I didn’t even want to turn on the television or read past the newspaper headlines. As my children caught snippets […]
