  • New Year's Eve and Traditions

    New Year’s Eve and the Value of Tradition in Parenting

    I wish I was the kind of parent that provided nap time at exactly the same time every day; that had a sit down dinner with the whole family every night; that had everything organized every day in a neat little box. But I’m not. As a working mom – and let’s be honest, is […]

    The Magic of Trees All Season Long

    I believe trees have magical healing power. If you’ve ever read The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, you know what I mean. If you have fond memories of sitting in a tree fort as a child, or climbing trees to look out and ponder the view from above, you know what I mean.

    On Being An EcoMom®

    Growing up in my family, most dinners began with the Lakota prayer,  “Aho. Mitakuye Oyasin,” which translates roughly as “To all my relations.” It is an expression of gratitude, and a reminder that we are all connected.

    The Baby Is Born: Birthing An Idea to Fruition

    Ok, I admit it. I’m a bit of a Type A. It’s not that I feel compelled toward great accomplishment, or that I can’t sit on the couch enjoying brownies (organic!), a trashy magazine (recycled out of my mom’s stash!), and a reality show all at the same time (I really can do all three […]

  • Fine Line between Insanity and Vision

    Fine Line between Insanity and Vision

    In almost every interview I’ve given since co-founding EcoMom®, I am asked how I got the idea. I answer that it came to me in the summer of 2006 on a mountaintop above my home, just North of San Francisco. But I don’t feel like I got the idea per se; Rather, I feel like […]
