If you're happy and you know it, tell your Mom

There are certain questions that I ask my son frequently:Did you know that you are very special to me?What questions did you ask today?Did you flush and wash your hands?What did you do today?Seriously, did you flush and wash your hands?Are you happy?It's that last question that has been on my mind lately. Because sometimes, it is really, really hard to tell. The Journal of Experimental Child Psychology recently published a study trying to determine if…See More

Going from DINKs to parents

Dual-Income, No Kids. That's what my husband and I were for a very long time. We spent years together working, traveling, figuring out who was the better chef (me), who was handier around the house (him) and having long discussions about the type of family we wanted to have one day. I had been with my husband for thirteen years before I got pregnant, and I know him better than any other person in this world.…See More

"Math is a challenge and I don't know if your area has adopted common core math but Oye vey! They don't even teach math like they did so it's a double slam! Good point on passing down anxiety to kids:)"

"My favorite subject was literature. I had awesome literature teachers that made the classes interesting. My love for it spread to both my kids, which is so great to see. Thanks!"

Why are we all scared of math?

Full disclosure: Math was not my favorite subject in school. But even though I didn't care for math, I still made really great grades in it. To me, math was too finite. If I was writing an essay, I could write my way out of a corner. With math, you were either right or wrong with your answers. And my teachers usually only explained one way to solve the problem, which was hard to follow.I…See More

Science cracked the biological clock

Posted on August 25, 2015 at 6:23am 0 Comments

I didn't believe that there was such a thing as a biological clock. And then I reached my late 20s and really, really wanted a baby. Fortunately for me, I already had the perfect guy and we were on the same path to marriage, baby and happily ever afterhood. I have a lot of friends who heard the ticking of their clocks earlier in life and had several children before I had my first. And I have a few friends who wanted to get their careers…

Subject Line: WFH

Posted on August 24, 2015 at 6:35am 0 Comments

It usually happens on a Friday or a Monday. I'll be in the office, waiting for my email program to start, and they will start to filter in: The Working From Home messages.



One or two emails that come in with the WFH subject line are common enough: Sick children, sick adult, work being done at the house and…
