A flood of memories

Editor's note: That's my house in the photo above, still underwater about a week after the crest of the Mouse River in Minot in 2011. Our home saw 5'5" on the main level (water that sat about 10 days), and many homes in the city saw up to double that. At the time, we had [...]

Northern Lights: the #1 reason to stay up way past your bedtime

I was up way past my bedtime last night. And this morning, I feel like I need a bathtub-sized cup of coffee. Why oh why do I live in the country, more than 40 miles round-trip from the nearest Starbucks?! Well, don't tell Starbucks, but I think this time, I have the better deal: I [...]

Mom's heart "Inside Out"

As a mother of young children, I sometimes feel like I'm drowning in tiny tears.“She took the one I wanted!”  Jealous tears.“I dropped an empty box of crayons on my big toe and it HURT!”  Wounded tears.“There are THREE greens and NO reds in my fruit snacks!”  Angry tears.Maybe that's why when I observe other people doing something as silly as [...]

1. Fingernails. Think for a minute: when was the last time your husband a) noticed one of your kids' fingernails had become jagged little weapons or b) searched for one of the dozen pairs of fingernail clippers wedged between the couch cushions to trim them back? My husband wears with pride his refusal to touch this task with a ten [...]

The fear of letting go

The baby didn't sleep last night. Again. She's really not a baby anymore, I suppose, at 16 months, cutting three molars (at once...delightful), learning to count, and running faster than her little legs can carry her towards anything resembling danger.And yet, I still see her as my baby in so many ways. She's quick to fall into my arms in [...]

Unlocking your child's mind

There's something inherently intimidating about interviewing a child. Will he look at me like I'm crazy? Will she speak unintelligible answers too quickly to be understood? Or (and this is the worst), will he say nothing at all, leaving an awkward silence and me fumbling to fill the verbal space?In my former life as a TV news reporter, I held a [...]

My Favorite Family Tradition: Indepence Day in Mandan

Moment of truth. I am 32 years old and I have celebrated 29 Independence Days in Mandan, North Dakota. That might seem normal if I lived in Mandan, as I do now. But for most of those years, I lived half-way across the country (in California!) but strategically planned travel to Mandan each summer for what [...]

​10 steps to becoming an actual grown-up

1. Wear lipstick. Is lipstick still a thing? I remember breaking out my mom's tubes of pretty pinks and red and playing with them when I was, oh, 6. Don't think I've touched the stuff since. But I should??2. Stop thinking of yourself as perpetually 16. (Not to be confused with dressing like I'm still 16; that body ship sailed [...]
