I have a 3 year old daughter, E. and a new baby, S. So far I have found the Mommy job description to be extensive, including but not limited to elements of librarian, nutritionist, child psychologist, musician, artist-in-residence, social planner, spiritual advisor, jungle gym and dairy maid.

Mostly I go by Katie. But I secretly always wanted to be a Kate. It’s not about changing my name; it’s about recognizing that I am not yet who I am supposed to be, and that I stand somewhere between the sinner and the saint, or between the unexamined and the intentional. I am in progress, and I will continue making small steps towards my “Kate-ness.”
