Birthing Facility at Oklahoma State University Medical Center in Tulsa

Oklahoma State University Medical Center in Tulsa unveiled a new Maternal Child Health (MCH) floor in the spring of 2015. The facility is built with patient-centered care in mind. Hospital equipment is discretely tucked behind sliding doors, cabinets or panels to enhance the quiet atmosphere of the private rooms. The MCH’s comprehensive services include Labor and Delivery, High-Risk Pregnancy Care, Post-Partum, Nursery, Pediatrics and a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The large birth and recovery rooms allow mom, baby and family to be together in a comfortable environment where moms labor, deliver, recover and care for their babies all in the same room. “We bring the equipment to the mom,” said Dr. Lance Frye, M.D., FACOG OB/GYN. “There is also an...

Must Read: The Nightingale

I know moms don't have a ton of time to read, so we have to make it count. The Nightingale is a core shaker and a must-read. Here's the synopsis...  In love we find out who we want to be. In war we find out who we are. FRANCE, 1939 In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front.

When a German captain requisitions Vianne's home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates all around them, she is forced to make...

A Gold Star for Zog

A good friend of mine gave my daughter A Gold Star for Zog last year and it quickly became our favorite. With a mixture of dragons and a liberated Princess, it has a great message for all.

The Chaloupe at Hodges Bend

Once in a while, the stars align and I get to go OUT. I swap out the sweat pants for skinny jeans, pull out the "good mascara" and join good people for good food and good drinks - it's all good. And when I do, my drink of choice is the Chaloupe (Saffron Gin, St. Germain, House Tonic, CO2) from Hodges Bend.

Visiting the U.S. National Parks with your Family

What is your favorite U.S. National Park? Which one would your children say is their personal preference? How familiar are you with the vast number of choices available within the grandeur of our national treasures?  A simple suggestion is to get the laptop, google U.S. National Park Service websites and maps (try National Geographic) and sit down as a family to identify what you wish to see firsthand and what will be most notable for your personal likes and tastes.  Sure, you know about the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone and they might be among your first considerations. But, you may choose less well-known Delaware Water Gap or Crater Lake in Oregon (one of my personal favorites). What’s cool is that there are more places to select from than there are number of...
