We Need a New Word for Busy

Oh hi. It’s Claire, author of a new book and mother of #3under3 who is traveling and speaking and writing and fighting with health insurance about preemie vaccines and cleaning up asking my husband to clean up the mess the neighbor’s dog makes of our trash every morning. Here’s the thing: Last week I told […]

Is Hustle a Dirty Word?

Recently there’s been a revolution of sorts around the word “hustle”. Long the mantra of entrepreneurs, “hustle” has started to get a bad rap, and some folks have started waving a big white flag calling for a cease and desist. I’m considering throwing my hat into the ring. Last week I came out with a […]

Run YOUR Race

Hello from an increasingly autumnal Southern hemisphere. In a few days, I’ll be flying up North.

Since I started flying as a kid, […]

My 2017 Word of the Year Is…

Hello from twin central. After seven weeks in tne NICU, we brought our preemie twins home last week, and they’re growing like bean stalks as we speak. This year my end of the year goal-setting was a bit different than most, as I was full up in the craze of being a new Mama to […]

How to Have a Healthy Relationship with Your Smartphone

This weekend, I had the bizarre impulse to text my two year old to tell her something. Although it would be an effective way to communicate important updates (“Emma’s mom is picking you up at preschool!”), I clearly don’t want to rush my daughter’s childhood. I know I’ll find myself too soon sitting across from […]
