Greetings!

Hello! Thanks to all who welcomed me in Liza’s post and greetings to our Lesbian Family readers. This will be in the way of an introductory post, we’ll get to the nitty gritty stuff in a week or two. I am very glad to be here and writing – first […]

Babies, Round 2

As my lovely wife and I get ready to “really” start trying to have a second child, we’ve been acknowledging our fears about it. In a big, vague way, of course we worry about how we’re going to afford “everything.” But in a more intimate way, we worry about things […]

Mommy/Mama

It was always the same series of questions: how did you get pregnant? Who is your donor? What is the baby going to call you? We developed easy, quick answers to the first two, but that last one was a doozie for quite a while. We just flat-out cialis soft […]

Sometimes, I think it would be easier to be the Dad

I have a draft post that I started, oh a couple of weeks ago, called “Ten Things I Have Learned in the First Week Home with My Son.” A mix of the tender and the humorous, the pretty and the very very stinky. Except that one of the things on […]

(just a quick note: this post was not inspired by Art’s recent post. I hesitate to post this as I feel it covers similar ground, but I think there may be a few other angles to discuss.) So tell me… Are you, as a lesbian parent/queer parent and parent to […]

Tradition….tradition!

As the Jewish holiday of Purim (Think Halloween crossed with Mardi Gras, with a little St. Patricks Day thrown in for good measure, but unique all on it’s own) passes us by, I’m left thinking a lot about religion, and how the decisions we make about it now will affect […]

An Order of Retail Therapy with a Side of Frustration

I have been meaning to write a review of Peggy Drexler’s Raising Boys Without Men, but I never seem to have the time.  So here’s some thoughts on a somewhat tangentially related topic…   In an ultimately futile attempt to distract myself from my most recent bout of adoption anxiety, I decided […]

The parent crunch

This afternoon I spent three and half hours putting my son down for a nap. He’s been sick all week, and, while he’s on the mend, he’s still cranky and fantastically snotty. The progress we’ve been making in getting him to sleep enough at a stretch that his mamas are […]
