There is no greater reward than being a mother, but believe me, for all those expecting moms out there, you sure do have your work cut out for you in order to earn that reward. It was only when I had my second child that I realized, being prepared for any scenario was better…
Keeping your home clean can be an exhausting task, especially if you have to squeeze it in between the chaos and work and keeping your family in line. And if your life feels like it’s nothing but cleaning and tedious chores, perhaps it’s…
The weather is getting hotter and hotter, and if you haven’t done it already, you are probably getting ready to open your pool and start the swimming season. Having a pool in your backyard is wonderful, but it requires quite some effort before you…
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm the mother of a 3 year old boy, Sebastian, and live in upstate New York with Bash (nickname), while my husband commutes to work in NYC every day. So, we're all always a little frazzled and exhausted and slightly tense. To allay the situation, we've decided to pursue our dream of buying and starting up an organic farm where we can create a cohesive and sustainable life (for us and as many other people as we can reach).
When Sebastian is sleeping or with his friends, I design and build jewelry from recycled materials and plants, and try to run my business, McFlashpants as sustainably as possible (even built a hydrotumbler out of old soda bottles).
We're all recovering New Yorkers who are born-again greenies, g-diaper afficionados, avid composters, rabid recyclers, local food buyers, and wood-stove-house heaters (clean-burning catalytic soapstone of course).
Lucky for me, Sebastian is a sweet natured, helpful child. But he's been suffering lately from a little PTSD (I think)--two years ago, I fell through my porch railing while he was napping (and still breast feeding), and got taken away to the ICU for a month. For two years, he barely registered the loss; but this month (the anniversary month), he has been unusually quick to anger (even for his age), nearly psychotic with clinginess and aversion to change (even something as simple as leaving the house), and fraught with nightmares. I think it's the accident, but then again, it could just be that we've been wintered into a small house together for months.
Like I said, I don't have much to go on but instinct, here.

Hi There from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York. My blog offers light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
