Sarah Casimiro

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 six-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, and doubled-down most recently 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. She is looking forward to embarking on her maiden voyage into blogging with Boston Moms Blog and hopes you are too!

Preparing for the Post-Holiday Drop

For me, it is inevitable: Every year after the holidays, I experience a drop. I feel sadder, more irritable, exhausted, and a little withdrawn. And it makes sense, if you really think about it. With...

Five Things I’ve Learned From the Chaos of the “New Normal”

The "new normal" is what we're calling this chaotic time in our lives, and while it is new, it is anything but normal. For a mama who is completely averse to change, this has...

Avoiding the Comments Section Trap

I have come to the conclusion that I am far too sensitive for Facebook. Sometimes it's a passive-aggressive meme suggesting I am somehow weak for wearing a mask and fearing a virus that has...
