I grew up in a sports driven family. My three older brothers have national and international experience in numerous sports. Therefore, it was a natural progression for me to follow in their footsteps. I absolutely love sports, and I have...
We found out that our eldest daughter was a girl months before she was born, but still went with a gender-neutral yellow for her nursery. We didn't register for anything pink. I happily accepted hand-me-downs from our nephews but...
In high school, I once got a menstrual period so bad that I blacked out in class, got dragged to the nurse's office by a classmate, and threw up in the principal's private bathroom.  I never knew when my...

Earlier this week, while enjoying a breakfast date with my 20-month-old son, a woman came over to us and commented on how cute he is. She continued to comment on how well he eats, how much he eats, and...
When I was pregnant, my husband and I didn’t find out whether we were having a girl or boy. We thought the anticipation was fun. That the surprise would be exciting. And that it didn’t really matter either way....
At 17 weeks pregnant, I received the news we would be adding a baby girl to our spunky family of three. Not only did we receive this exciting news, but we also learned our daughter had a rare chromosomal...
"Mom! I finally found a friend today at school, just like me!" Just like you?  "Yes! She plays with dolls too! But we don't tell anyone, cause they will laugh and think we are babies. It's ok that we still play...
