Have you ever bought a planner thinking it was going to fix all your problems? Or made a chore chart for your kids, just sure that this would be the thing that would motivate them to do their jobs with happy hearts? Two weeks in, the planner has never made it out of your purse and your kids are already complaining about which jobs they have to do that week. Been there. That’s the problem when we’re trying to solve things in our lives by looking microscopically. There’s a reason that planner isn’t going to turn you into a whole new person. We’re trying to bandage the symptoms rather than di ..read more

THANKS FOR THE COOKIES IN THE BREAK ROOM, BUT I'M STILL TIRED
The Modern Mommy Doc Blog

Picture with me this very common dinner time family scene: Chicken, cheesy potatoes, and steamed broccoli on everyone’s plates. Adults happily eating. One child trying everything on her plate because she’s a first born and “a pleasure to have in class.”  The other child has finished all of their chicken and potatoes and refuses to eat even a bite of their vegetables.  If you’ve been there before, you’ve probably seen the pattern that comes next: sweetly asking your little one to eat their dinner turns to “just 3 bites.” Which eventually leads to, “If you just lick the freaking bro ..read more

I TOOK MY AUTISTIC DAUGHTER TO SEE TAYLOR SWIFT IN TOKYO. SHE WAS WAY MORE READY FOR IT THAN I WAS

“Mom, you can film any other part of this concert you want to,” my 10-year-old daughter told me, jumping up and down as Taylor Swift prepared to take the stage in Tokyo, “But just be here with me in this special moment right now.” She was right. Three days earlier, we’d boarded a plane in Portland, Oregon, taken a twelve-hour journey, navigated a complicated train system, and were now waiting for her favorite artist to take the stage. As I pulled out my phone to record Taylor’s entry at the beginning of the show, my daughter gently pulled my ear close to her to remind me about the reason for ..read more

AN OPEN LETTER TO SUMMER CAMP SCHEDULING SEASON

Dear Summer Camp Scheduling Season, I hate you. I’ll get to why, but let me first start by saying how much I want to love you. For one, my Gen X, working-mom heart is enthralled by the possibility all your camps promise: freedom to work continuously during the summer months while my children frolic along nature trails at outdoor camp, compose masterpieces at music camp, and make the best of friends at sleepaway camp. The offerings you describe in your sign-up newsletters sound magical and adventurous all at once—a far cry from the mundane YMCA Day Camp I attended for weeks on end as a subu ..read more

We’re seasoned experts in setting boundaries for other people, aren’t we? Especially our kids. We make sure they don't run into the street, we control their screen time, we establish a schedule that keeps them rested and (mostly) sane.  But there's one boundary that we often forget about, because it’s WAY easier to set this one aside. Because it causes a lot less confrontation and requires less intentionality from us when we forget about it. This is the boundary that defines our relationship with ourselves.  I wanna dig into setting self-boundaries and why they're crucial for our ..read more
