Emily Fahle

After an illustrious career in politics (including stints on Capitol Hill and on a presidential campaign) and then reinsurance (yeah, that was a career change), Emily decided to once again make a bold move and stay at home after her first daughter was born. Daughter number two came shortly thereafter, and when daughter number three made her debut it became an official girl tribe! The Fahle girls keep super busy and active exploring their beloved town of Scituate and all that Boston and the South Shore have to offer! Emily is currently experiencing getting along with an infant who believes mom is a Holstein, a preschooler who is smarter than her, and a 2-year-old who has drama in her veins. Emily never knew coffee and wine would be such an essential part of her day.

Down a Kid and Gaining a Whole Bunch of Time

Only time will tell what I will do with my newfound free time. What I do know is that I will continue to try my hardest to enjoy this short period when I have kiddos home with me who want to be around me. Even on our most overwhelming days, they always know how to put a smile on my face and close the day out with love and a snuggle. That is a treasure I wouldn't give up for all the time in the world.

Easy Medicine Dosing :: OnCure App

We are in the heart of cold and flu season. With three active kids (two of whom are in school), a lot of germs go through our house. With those germs come many fevers. Many, many fevers. I was recently introduced to a really nifty app, OnCure, that makes tracking medicine dosages much easier (and safer!).

We Have Never Had Christmas at Home — and I’m Fine With That

They say there's no place like home for the holidays, but for us, the magic of Christmas is not lost when we don't wake up in our own beds Christmas morning. The magic of Christmas for our family is cousins piling on each other like puppies, Grandma baking too many cookies, and aunts and uncles bantering. Santa still finds us, and we get to share the excitement with our extended family. We may not have Christmas at home, but it's our holiday tradition, and it's special to us. Christmas may never be at "home," but home is when we are all together.
