Heather is just an ordinary mom trying to make her kids' lives
extraordinary. She plays dolls and trains, grows vegetables on the
deck, and tries to soak in every moment with her family. She does
chalk and bubbles on the building stoop, chases pigeons and watches
squirrels. She goes to
libraries, museums and kiddy classes. She loves
to attend, and often performs classical
music concerts herself. She builds sand castles at
the beach, and has sore arms from pushing playground swings. She
has a love/hate relationship with the CTA. She eats her way around
the world in the melting pot of Chicago and loves to cook. She used
to drive a double stroller, but has finally upgraded to a car. If
you're lucky, she'll share all her secrets about Uptown, the most
diverse neighborhood in the city.
