Danielle Monaro, Z100, Pregnant, Tells Butterfly All About Life As a Mom & Famous DJ

as told by Butterfly Co-Founder Bradi Nathan

While the country is in economic turmoil my children go about their day without a care in the world. It is my job to subtly remind them that we are waiting to buy “extras” until the next holiday or birthday arises. All the while I remain constant around my kids – happy and carefree. My husband and I are concerned and even alarmed but on our clock, not…

Beyond Balance: 7 New Ways to Create Lasting, Meaningful Work/Life Satisfaction

Are you dissatisfied with the way you spend your time?

For most people concerned with “work/life balance” it means too much time spent on professional responsibilities and not enough time spent outside of work enjoying friends, family, personal interests, or other important events and activities. It may also mean that work has become all encompassing and there is no “other” time.
Regardless of your situation,… Continue

Don’t Drink the Bath Water

Kids will be kids; they do things that can sometimes make us cringe - like eating dirt, picking their nose, or drinking their bath water. But most of these things are harmless rites of passage that we can just laugh off. After all, drinking bubble bath water can’t really harm them, right? Wrong, says the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a national coalition of nonprofit health and environmental organizations that just…

The Celeb Factor

If you don't know this already, I'm hopeless with pop culture. Here is my list of admissions/confessions:

- I don't own an i-POD, MP3, and don't really know what a PVR does. And is Blu-ray just a fancy DVD?

- Despite my older children being ages nine, eight, and six, I have never seen an episode of Hannah Montana, heard a Jonas Brothers song or seen a High School Musical movie;

- I wouldn't know Adam Lambert if he sang a tribute to me;

- I know there… Continue

From the Mouth of Babes

What does it feel like to have a mommy that works? Sometimes it makes me feel um…like, happy that my mom is going back to work and I try to be happy because I know that mommy is happy and whenever my mom is happy, I’m happy. But, sometimes, it feels um, … like I feel really upset that I don’t see my mom anymore and don’t like to be with babysitters. When she comes home late and I don’t see her all day I try to hide my tears. Well, um…when I get off of the bus I hope my mom is home. When there’s… Continue

I am trying to build a network of thinking women at my blog:

My name is Elisha Webster Emerson. I am a feminist, writer, and a soon-to-be-mother. I was vehemently opposed to having children, and then my IUD took a sick day.

Now, I am learning how to embrace my motherhood, while remaining a serious and uncompromised artist.

I hope to share this process through my blog.

Topics covered (besides motherhood): Art,… Continue

All Love Means...

Note: A paragraph to positive change.

I wrote this poem and took this picture around the same time. It was 2007 and even though I was back in school, my change plan was something I wanted to achieve. The reality was I wasn't sure I knew if the decisions I was making were the right ones. You could tell through all my creative work the pain of change was causing. All I could do was… Continue

The Childless Aunt

I'm currently writing an article for Mother's Day about mamas who don't have their own mothers around. It's fascinating to me that people can raise children when their own moms are not retired, living locally, emotionally involved or alive. So, you have that happy read to look forward to. In the meantime it got me thinking about another valuable player in the extended family - the childless aunt.

I had a childless aunt who we tragically lost to breast cancer a dozen years ago… Continue

Segway inventor reveals 'toughest question'

By Thom Patterson


Segway scooter inventor Dean Kamen freely admits it: He often suffers sleepless nights wrestling over whether to quit a project that's not panning out.

"You end up lying there saying, 'I'm not stopping. It would be an act of shallow cowardice. Or you decide to quit and you say, 'This is one of those ideas that just isn't going to work,' " said Kamen, speaking by phone from his home office in Manchester, New Hampshire.

A Respectful Approach to Dealing with Separation Anxiety

By Kimberley Clayton Blaine

Babies can show signs of separation anxiety as early as six months – but the toughest time for most babies is between 13 to 18 months. This is when your baby is becoming a toddler and is realizing that they are completely separate beings from you. The good news is separation anxiety will pass and there are ways to make it more manageable. Every time I go to brush my teeth, I usually have my toddler hanging on one of my…
