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)

On Veterans Day, this Friday, 160 Girl Scouts from 22 troops in Palo Alto are participating in a Day of Service. They will be volunteering at 7 sites around the community including two nature preserves, Breast Cancer Connection, the One Warm Coat drive, Common Ground Garden, and the Magical Bridge Playground.
Magical Bridge Playground is always a wonderful to place to go with our kids. From the many swings to the fast slides to the two-story playhouse, there is so much for little ones to do.
On Friday the playground will have even more to offer. 25 Brownie, Junior and Cadette scouts will host a variety of fun activities from 9:30-11:30
for kids to enjoy. From face painting to decorating cards for hospitalized veterans, it should be a fun-filled morning for all. Everybody is welcome.
