Show & Tell: I Am Woman Hear Me ... Sweep?

My 4-year-old daughter’s working very hard at becoming a woman.If she sees me applying lip gloss, she asks me to hand it over so she can “be beautiful.”If she spies me with a knife and cutting board, she races to chop those veggies along side me (don’t worry, her knife is plastic).If she hears the tell-tale sound of sweeping – and knows I’ve started without her – she tsk-tsks, “Mommy, you know how much I like cleaning.”For some reason, she seems to think that working, wiping, food shopping,…See More

Show & Tell: This Won't Hurt a Bit

This week I’m faced with two parenting dilemmas that I simply don’t have answers for. So I’m turning to you all, my parenting experts, for advice:First of all, my 4-year-old daughter’s ballet recital is less than two weeks away. We’ve got the moves down, the music blaring and the costume ready. But the closer we get to the big day, the more she curls into an armadillo ball of fear. Let me preface this all by saying that last year, after much cajoling, she performed on stage at the recital with…See More

Show & Tell: Unflappable? No So Much

My 7-year-old son had a cold this week so I kept him home one day to rest.I still haven’t recovered.Just a few extra hours together has produced a maelstrom of unexpected conversations – each one darker and more complicated than the last.I pride myself on being fairly unflappable. I’ve read the parenting books and web sites. I can handle gross bodily functions and private part curiosity. I was ready for the “tough” inquiries about how babies are made and why some kids are bullies. But that…See More

Show & Tell: Even Steven

Remember that Seinfeld episode where Elaine becomes George, George becomes Elaine and everything comes out Even Steven for Jerry? Yeah, life’s not like that.Ok, maybe I’m dating myself here by referring to a long-gone sit-com but I think, even if you’ve never watched the show, that you get my point.Life is not a scorecard, a balance sheet, a scale.Everything doesn’t come out even in the end. Everyone doesn’t always get an equal share.But try telling that to my kids.They have an innate sense of…See More

Show & Tell: Don't Eat That!

I’d recently reached what I thought was a wonderful parenting stage – allowing my children to play right outside our home without my eagle eye watching their every move. I’d become especially lax because they often play with the neighbor kids, who are all between the ages of 9-12. And, luckily, my home has lots of windows but no hurricane-proof glass, so I can pretty much see and hear all the mayhem without acting like a parental sentry.It was a great arrangement. In the late afternoon, I’d…See More

Show & Tell: When Your Little Salmon Swim Upstream

I was recently commiserating with a co-worker. She mentioned that her oldest, who has one more year to go before graduating college with a degree in engineering, has decided that even though his world is very comfortable (his parents were paying his tuition, room and board) he’s taking break to figure out what he wants to do with his life.Although she wasn’t thrilled with his decision – although she had made sacrifices in her life specifically so she could lay a soft, flower-strewn path to…See More

Show & Tell: Angst: It's What's for Dinner

I hate dinnertime.I hate cooking well-balanced meals that aren’t eaten.I hate glaring at children who refuse to use napkins and utensils – at least in the way they’re supposed to be used.I hate scolding the dog to stop begging at the table; the two-more-bites negotiations; the constant plea for dessert.Most of all, I hate the implied societal pressure that a healthy, happy family must endure a Brady Bunch-style dinner.Ok, so growing up I did have a Very Brady dinner every night, complete with…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a recovering journalist, a writer and a mother of two curious life explorers. My 7-year-old son loves sports, drawing and science experiments. My 4-year-old daughter, when not faithfully trailing her brother, cleans for fun.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Motherhood is a lonely business. And it doesn't come with a handbook. I find blogging amazingly cathartic. It helps me clarify issues and gain insight from others who share their experiences.
