Sarah grew up in Rhode Island and now lives in West Bridgewater, making brief stops in Quincy, Fall River, and East Bridgewater, along the way. She made the leap from Rhode Island to Massachusetts way back in 1999 when she decided to pursue a teaching degree at Boston University. She chose her career in 1987 and is currently teaching high school English to 10th and 12th graders, fulfilling a 6-year-old’s dream at the age of 22, a proclamation that often brings forth snickers from her students. She became a mother for the first time in 2016 to her daughter Cecilia, then doubled down in late 2018 with the birth of her second daughter, Adelaide. She currently lives with her husband, Jason, their dog, Nanook, their cat, Lanky, and six chickens. They share a home with her parents, who live above them and also provide the most amazing childcare for Ceci and Addie. Sarah couldn’t live without her family, her insulin pump (shout out to other T1D mamas), and Starbucks iced chai lattes. She could live without angry people, essay grading, and diaper changing.

This Will Not Last Forever

Motherhood is exhausting. I don’t know anyone who would argue with this observation. Sometimes it’s hard to be both in the moment and not resentful — to wish for a respite from the chaos...

‘Encanto’ Has Me Charmed

Well, Disney has done it again. Over the winter holiday they released "Encanto," their latest in a run of animated musicals. And let me tell you, I watched it 125,283 times in the first...

Bluey :: A Respite from Other Kid Shows

Much of what my girls watch on TV is mindless nonsense. Or, worse than mindless nonsense, it's sassy kids (or ponies) acting like the teenagers they are not. The days my daughter quotes Ryan,...
