One of the coolest parts of my job is figuring out why people move the way they do. Our bodies are living, breathing, moving monuments to our history of experience. Take me, for example.

It’s baseball season and I’m a whiner. My son plays in the neighborhood league, where they warn you that failure to participate will mean you won’t be a part of the league next year. And participate?

Lord, have mercy!  We have been sick, sick, sick at my house.  There is a terrible stomach virus – norovirus? – raging in these parts and if you have escaped it, feel blessed.  This is on top of bouts of flu and vertigo we’ve had at our house the past few weeks.  Throw in a […]

Baby A turns nine months old today. That means the last full night of sleep I got was (drumroll, please) …nine months ago. All of my babies have been wakeful little sprites.  We’ve struggled with naps and nighttime.  Getting them down has always been a lot of work. [Please, no “Have you read Ferber/Ezzo/name-the-sleep-expert-who-helped-you?” comments. […]
