Real Live Date Night


Real Live Date Night

    #1 - When you are a busy old married lady with four kids, it's easy to forget to have dates with your husband.  #2 - When you are a busy old married lady with four kids, and you FINALLY remember to have a date with your husband, it's easy to go to the same old places you always go and do the same old stuff. #3 - When you are a busy old married lady with four kids, and you FINALLY remember to have a date with your husband and you also make a point to try some place new, it's worth blogging about! Last night, Marc and I had our pseudo Valentine's date. The last two Valentine's Days I've been at the hospital with a doula client, and my husband isn't usually particularly interested in fighting the crowds at fancy restaurants...

My Kids Skipped School and I'm Not Sorry


My Kids Skipped School and I'm Not Sorry

I really try to do the right thing as a parent. I'm an information junkie and I've been known to research things to death. I can sometimes talk myself and others (especially my husband) silly questioning and asking advice. Although I'm a questioner and a bit of a rebel sometimes, I do tend to rely on the advice of experts. That is, until the advice of experts seems to go against my better judgement or common sense. I'm a firm believer that each of us gets to make the final call on parenting and we shouldn't have to answer to anyone else about decisions we alone have to live with. So, on the morning in question when the view out my front door looked like this: I decided my kids weren't going to school. Judging from a lifetime of living in...

Tony Bennett Made Me Cry


Tony Bennett Made Me Cry

I didn't know I was going to cry all night. I just thought I was going to a lovely concert with my cute husband. I had no idea what I was in for.  Last Fall, my husband Marc had the opportunity to see one of his all time favorite artists. This wasn't just any artist; it was Tony Bennett. Not only did he get to see him perform from the best seats in the house, he was also given back stage passes to MEET Tony Bennett. Don't believe me? Yep, there he is, right there next to the legend himself. That's my cute husband, Marc on the left, Mr. Bennett, and our friend Clayton on the right.  At the time I didn't feel too terrible missing the concert. I was glad to let Marc go with his friend and experience something that was so important to him. I...

Tulsa Youth Opera's Little Nemo in Slumberland


Tulsa Youth Opera's Little Nemo in Slumberland

Think opera's not your thing? Well, have you ever been to a youth opera? Did you know Tulsa has its own youth opera? I didn't until I got an email from my dad! My dad is so great about staying up on what's going on in the arts community in Tulsa, and often invites us to performances like The Nutcracker and many others. A couple of weeks ago, he sent me an email about Tulsa Youth Opera's performance of Little Nemo in Slumberland. He had put in the subject, "Wanna go? I'm buying." And, really, how can you say no to that? We got there as early as we could, but we still couldn't find seven seats next to each other, as the seats were general admission. The performance was in the John H. Williams theatre of the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, the...

Introducing Tulsa County BirthNetwork


Introducing Tulsa County BirthNetwork

Where do you go when you find out you're pregnant and need information? Most of us start with our doctors and then start asking our friends for information. It can be difficult navigating the world of pregnancy and childbirth, even in the information heavy world we live in! As a childbirth professional myself, I know there are several pockets in Tulsa and surrounding areas of educators and professionals whose passion is to assist and educate women during their pregnancies. For the layperson, so to speak, it can be next to impossible to find what you need and want unless you know the right people. Until now! I would like to introduce you to Tulsa County BirthNetwork. Imagine a one stop shop where childbirth educators, physicians, midwives, doulas, prenatal yoga...
