What’s in your attic? For most of us, the answer is probably, “A lot of junk.” There may be some old family photographs or useful artifacts up there, but generally speaking, it’s easy to haul something up to the top of your house and then stop thinking about it for awhile. In the classic novel Jane Eyre, Mr. Rochester kept his mentally ill wife locked in the attic, but unless you’re a character in that book, attic wives are … Keep Reading!!!
How many breastfeeding moms out there have heard one (or all) of these comments?
By Bridget McGann
Car accidents are relatively simple unless we’re talking about the most minor of fender benders. That said, there are some cases where fault is clearly established and others where it’s clearly not. Let’s say you’re in a car and a pickup truck driver behind is following at an uncomfortable distance. Then a person runs out into the road right in front of you and you have to slam on the brakes. If the car behind you then crashes into you, … Keep Reading!!!
This blog loves co-sleeping and breastfeeding. We love nursing to sleep. We love wearing our babies to sleep. We love cuddling our babies to sleep.
Jamie wrote here about co-sleeping. Co-sleeping is safe. Just like in a crib, there are certain steps that need to be taken to make a baby’s sleep environment safe. In a crib, there should be no bumpers or blankets – only a flat sheet. The same goes for co-sleeping!
I think our support for co-sleeping … Keep Reading!!!
We are framing this photo for Samuel, taken by Kyle LaMere in Ethiopia, September 2012. Under the photo will be Maya Angelou’s “Love Liberates” quote.
How beautifully she sums up the importance and love of the birth mother and family. How true love frees; it does not enslave.
Someone once said, “Children need two things: One is roots and the other is wings.” I know Samuel’s birth mother was strong enough to provide our son with wings. Now our prayer … Keep Reading!!!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Houston Waves for Water Fundraiser to bring clean water to Ethiopia. It was a blast!
Kayla and Omar Dar of Baby’s Breastie and Fayye Foundation put the entire event together in six short weeks. Because of their dedication to the clean water project in Ethiopia, we were able to bring people of all walks of life together to raise $7000, which in turn will bring 7000 people clean water.

Old Folks Laugh by Maya Angelou
They have spent their
content of simpering,
holding their lips this
and that way, winding
the lines between
their brows. Old folks
allow their bellies to jiggle like slow
rise up and spill
over any way they want.
When old folks laugh, they free the world.
They turn slowly, slyly knowing
the best and the worst
Saliva glistens in
the corners of their mouths,
their heads wobble
on … Keep Reading!!!
We live in an age that encourages and supports do-it-yourselfers, possibly one much like yourself. Whether you are erecting a new home or other structure or are performing maintenance work, blogs and videos online can teach you how to do just about anything from start to finish. If you have the time and handyman spirit, you can do learn to do projects like tiling, deck building, fixture installations, and so much more. However, when it comes to tougher, heavier jobs, … Keep Reading!!!
We’re at week four and these stories of real attachment parenting dads have taken off! People are loving dads getting the accolades they deserve.

A story was told to me a few nights ago about two brothers and their love for each other.
This is a story of hope and love led by example of the most unfiltered, precious, and discerning people on the planet- children.
Parents tend to boast about their children’s Western accomplishments. Various awards are given out for excellence in academics, sports, and the arts. We all know, or are guilty ourselves, of bragging about physical attributes of our children. How … Keep Reading!!!
“The Brightest Light . . .” Letter from Laura Farruggio
I am proud to say my husband is speaking out and representing “attachment parenting” fathers in the February issue of Natural Child World.
The author of the article did a great job dispelling the myths presented back in May about the lack of presence fathers have in “AP” families, or that they have been dominated by their wives or significant others. It probably helps that Brian just happens to be a stereotypical “manly man” since many of the articles … Keep Reading!!!
