About this blog: I'm a wife, stay-at-home mom, home cook, marathon runner, and PhD. I recently moved to the Silicon Valley after completing my PhD in Social Psychology and becoming a mother one month apart. Before that, I ran seven marathons including Chicago and Boston. Exercise is an integral part of my life. I hope to one day go back to long distance running and tackle the New York City Marathon. Right now I run after my one year old son. Although I am a stay-at-home mom, we are rarely "at home." My mom also stayed at home with my brother and me. She warned me that, although rewarding, it can be isolating. So, with her help, I learned the importance of getting out into the community and meeting other mothers. On the rare occasion when I am at home and have a hand or two free, I squeeze in time to scrapbook. As a new mom, many challenges are thrown my way. I hope my opinions, triumphs, and struggles help experienced parents reminisce, new parents cope, and parents-to-be get an honest glimpse of what the first years of motherhood can entail. (Hide)

Enjoying the snow from afar
Uploaded: Jan 24, 2016
With the blizzard on the East Coast, our son is hearing all about snow this week.
We've talked about which distant friends and relatives are affected by the blizzard and which are nowhere near it. We've looked at Facebook posts, YouTube videos and news stories related to the blizzard. And, not surprisingly, we ended up talking most about how the blizzard has severely impacted transportation.
It's not always easy to find current events that are appropriate to discuss with a preschooler. But I enjoy working them into our conversations whenever I can.
What current events are you talking about with your kids?
What is it worth to you?
