Editor's Blog

Betty Casey has been editor of TulsaKids for over 20 years – her youngest child was 3-years-old when she started working for the magazine. She and her husband Wes have three young adult children. Betty’s blog ranges from writing about current issues or information of interest to local parents, reflecting on her life without kids at home, and posting a few recipes now and then. (Cooking and running are two or her favorite past-times.) Betty is the author/illustrator of two children’s books, May Finds Her Way and That Is a Hat (The RoadRunner Press) and she is currently working on a third. She was named Blogger of the Year in 2014 by The Great Plains Journalism Awards and was a finalist in 2015. She has won numerous writing awards from the Parenting Media Association.

Hello Sunshine 

Bethanie Verduzco is a professional birth doula and owner of Hello Sunshine Birth Services in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as well as mama to two wild and silly kids, Noa and Asher.  Bethanie's work centers around empowering mamas to take charge of their own care by better understanding the birth process, advocating for what they want, and appreciating how truly amazing our bodies are! 

When she's not at a birth or writing a blog post, she hopes to find herself knitting, watching old episodes of ‘Rick Steves’ Europe’ with her husband Bhadri, or having a family dance party in the living room.

Tulsa Times Two 

I'm a stay at home Mom with twin girls who are 1.8 years old. Born and raised in Tulsa, I just moved back from Dallas and am excited to be back in the 918! It feels like I have been gone a decade and have never lived here as a Mom. Each week, I will be exploring the hip toddler spots in town. For those stolen moments that are kid free, I will share how my Mom brain relates to people who are older than 2 years old. My favorite show is Gilmore Girls, and java is in my hand 24/7. Raising twins, I strive to show them they are each unique and one of a kind. Hugs, embarrassing Mom dancing skills and good intentions are how I roll. I cannot recreate anything on Pinterest, but for our family, we are perfectly imperfect.
