MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). BBM (Building Better Moms).   Mommy and Me.   Johnson County Moms.   Northland Moms.   Kansas City Moms Blog.   And the list goes on and on for groups and resources available for Kansas City moms. What is missing from the...
Dear Husband, It was a question that you asked during my pregnancy — “How am I supposed to be a good father when I didn’t have one?” I didn’t have an answer then because I don’t know what it’s like to...
Many modern families are migrating toward new and unique ways to manage a work/life balance. The old-fashioned view of a working family structure, where dad kisses his wife on his way off to work while mom stays behind and...
It was just another ordinary night when my son unknowingly crushed my feminist soul. The family dynamic in our home, at the moment, is one in which I am home more often with the children than my husband. This means...
The dads I know give midnight feedings. The dads I know play hours of peekaboo. The dads I know cut every meal into tiny toddler bites. The dads I know change diapers. I'll never forget the first time my husband and...

It was, dear children, the unlikeliest of meetings. Really, when I was growing up I had no idea that I would end up with the tall, dark and handsome man from across the world that I eventually did. (Did...
Dear Girls, I'm writing today to tell you the story about how I met your father. It's not some fairytale romance so don't worry - I won't embarrass you with mushy details about it being love at first sight and how I...
It’s strange, the seemingly instinctive progression of how we view our fathers. I remember counting down as a child until dad would walks through the door, attacking him with pent up vigor upon his return. However, as we grow in our independence,...
