I am mama to Grace and wife to Liesbeth. In August of 2009, Liesbeth and I moved from the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area to a small town in the middle of nowhere, Kansas so that we could afford to have babies and for me to be a stay at home mom. This blog chronicles our perspective on being gay, liberal, environmentalist, (kind of) attachment-parenting, Montessori-inspired parents out here on the plains. In my previous life, I was a postpartum doula and lactation specialist.
Liesbeth (30) is mommy to Grace, and of course, my wife. We were married in Santa Rosa, California on October 28, 2008. She is possibly the happiest and most sane person on the planet. Liesbeth is a middle school science teacher and blogs here from time to time.
Grace is our sweet daughter, born on May 17, 2010 in the water at home. We think that she is the cutest baby in the entire world. Her favorite things include playing with her kitties, riding on her Mommy or Mama’s back, saying “hi” repeatedly to passers-by, performing the motions to “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, nursing, climbing stairs, and playing peek a boo.
