Kristen has a Ph.D. in philosophy, a birth doula certification and a deep, abiding hatred for the "cherish every moment" mantra. You can find her cherishing every other moment with her three young sons (and writing and working as a college instructor) in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to her blogs — the former one, Birthing Beautiful Ideas, and the current one, Every Other Moment — her work has appeared on BlogHer, Giving Birth With Confidence, and in the 2014 anthology, "The Good Mother Myth."
What was your favorite childhood toy?
An easel chalkboard. I used it to teach many a class to my sisters and stuffed animals.
