Around this time last year, I was entering my third trimester with our second child. Anticipating the logistical juggling act of 2 under 2 with great trepidation, I was in the market for a double stroller roomy enough to accommodate our tall toddler and the new babe, but small and flexible enough to service our highly mobile urban lifestyle.
After much research, I narrowed the field down to a BOB Revolution Duallie, the Bumbleride Indie Twin, and the Maclaren Twin Techno. I had… Continue

My theme for tonight's blog serves two purposes...it is to help me and (hopefully) you get a feel for how different the world must look from an autie perspective...
...that, and to shamelessly indulge my love of Monty Python.
I found this quote on an article from FAMEBaby (Baby Center's Celebrity blog) today:
“I will tell you what I can’t abide - and I think the Internet has really created a space for it - women criticizing other women and mothers criticizing other mothers. It just makes me crazy, whether it’s between staying at home, going to work, how long you breast-feed, if you use formula. I feel like we should just assume everyone is doing the best they can. Women should take care of each other,…Continue

My boss said that to me once. And it really stayed with me. We are all raised being told that you have to do your best and excel and be an A student. Nothing I disagree with. But then you get into the real world and realize that just isn't real life. Sometimes, C work is good enough. And sometimes, C work is actually really, really good.
I was invited to participate in a research study on working moms and balance (ha!). I probably can't say too much about it as I have a feeling I… Continue

To teach or reinforce basics, get back to basics! In this day of ever increasing technology, it is still beneficial to give it all up for at least a few minutes and get back to basics.
I'm sure you have observed that in schools these days, as in other parts of the world, technology is king.

There are computer and hand held video games and systems and… Continue

I should have known my life would resemble tectonic plates not meant to hold still when my first sentence at the age of nine months was “eff routine”. I didn’t say it out loud, of course, or even know the words. But inside I felt their meaning. I couldn’t walk or talk yet, but I threw myself into the part. A restless method actor.
I knew, when at a year and a half, I reached over the top of my net playpen for the scissors my sister left too close to the edge of the dining room table,… Continue

One of the biggest struggles of Work at Home Women today is lack of time in the day to complete all that they are expected to. Between being a homemaker, mother & wife in most cases, this in itself is a job. Then when you throw in the tons of duties that you have each day to make sure that your business gets the attention that it needs there is very little time left for you and/or your family.
We want to help you change this! That’s why we created a place where you can truly… Continue

(Didn't have internet yesterday to plug in this post. So here it is today.)
Having movers pack your stuff is a strange experience. Right now Queenie and I have been pushed to a corner in my bedroom, made to get out of the way. Every time we dare to leave we bump into someone, making us feel in the way and outsiders in our own home. For awhile we were huddled in the kitchen having breakfast on the floor while playing with her choo-choo. it was fine until she saw a… Continue

"Oprah isn't 'like' many of her viewers in terms of income, but she connects to them on a personal level," said Lou Manza, a psychology professor at Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania. "She has chronicled her own struggles in a very public manner, and this lets people see that while she is wealthy, she also has 'regular' problems and has managed to work through them. This gives people hope - 'If Oprah did it, so can I.'" This quote came from the… Continue
