Hi. I’m caro. I’m a writer, and I knit, garden, and run. I’m a former anthropologist and an ex-infertile.

My husband and I have two daughters (born May ’05 and August ’07). This blog is about how they grow. More than that, it’s about how I’m learning to be their mama. Sometimes that’s beautiful; other times, not so much.

I believe that one of the best things moms can do for one another is be honest about what it’s like to raise children. That’s the main reason I write this blog. For that same reason, I am sometimes willing to show you photos of my filthy kitchen.

Please leave a comment and tell me who you are and where you write. I love to know who’s here.
