Hi!  Welcome to my blog!  My name is Gretchen and I am a part-time family physician and a full-time wife and mother of two crazy, wonderful boys.  I’ve been writing casually for years but this last year the writing bug really bit me and I haven’t been able to stop putting pen to paper (or, more appropriately, fingers to keyboard).  I write for my work newsletter and periodically contribute to an online magazine (www.childrenswritersguild.com) but I started this blog as a place to share my thoughts on parenthood, medicine, doctoring, wifedom (what, that’s not a word?) and anything else that tickles my fancy.  I hope my musings will inspire, entertain, and challenge you.  My opinions may not suit everyone’s taste, but, if I spark emotion or discussion, then I count myself successful!  I look forward to your feedback and hope you enjoy the Adventures of Doctor Mom!
