The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource

Mary Kanowitz



Originally from a small town in Middle America, Mary moved to Denver, CO on a whim after attending the University of Iowa. It turned out to be the best move she has made as it was here she met the man of her dreams, Aaron. Shortly after they got married, Aaron accepted a job offer that brought them to Memphis. The wife of a pilot and mommy to two little ones just fourteen and a half months apart, Josephine (Joey), born November 2012 and Ari (Danger), born January 2014, Mary finds herself exploring (usually un-showered and a little disheveled) all that the city of Memphis has to offer with her wee ones. A resident of Memphis, Mary likes to write, cook, eat, drink wine, read, and look for the end of the Internet in her spare time, which doesn’t really exist.

Daddy and Dad
"Old as she was, she still missed her Daddy sometimes." -Gloria Naylor I have missed my Daddy for twenty-eight years now. It's pretty rare that a moment in my own life goes by that I don't think about what life would be like if he were still here. I can still see him, feel his […]
Here’s To the Mothers in Our Lives
Mom, you gave me life and all that you have. Sometimes I was very ungrateful, but you kept giving. You kept going through tragedy and made sure my life was safe and that I could still be a child through it all. You did this on your own through so much loss. I know there […]
