I’m a mommy who lives near the beach in Hawaii. Going to the beach on a sunny day is a frequent outing for Bree, my twenty-month old daughter, and I. Leaving the house is not easy; there are many essentials I must put into my enormous beach bag to make sure I am prepared for our beach-day. Thirty minutes before we’re meant to leave usually finds me running wildly around my house, trying to prevent Bree from scattering toys and books around (I prefer to leave my house somewhat clean), while… Continue

Over the course of the 13 months of being a parent I have learned two very important lessons: 1) Parenting is the hardest, scariest job in the world. 2) Excluding the few monster moms flashed across Fox News (if it bleeds, it leads), most parents are doing their best so try not to be such a critic of others‘ parenting styles.
With these lessons in mind I was disheartened by a recent article in Parents magazine, Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Baby?, that centered on the theme “Get over… Continue

What stresses you out?
For me, it is the daily grind, the feeling that I am biting off more than I can chew often getting this sense of failure when I don’t accomplish all 1,005 things on my to-do list.
Why do we do it? Why do we feel like we are indestructible until we have that first breakdown? I feel that as parents stress and tension has become so entrenched in our day-to-day lives that we often don't recognize it anymore. Often… Continue

I once read somewhere that when you are adopted, you end up living a life not knowing where life started for you. You grow up yearning to know who made you, what does your mother look like, what your father worked as and if you had your father or mother's smile. You end up wondering if that crooked front tooth was genetic. It probably isn't but, as someone who is adopted, you may start wondering that despite the silliness of it all.

There can be times in our lives we look back and think about missed opportunities. I know I can think of countless times when I said to myself, "I should have.....", "Why didn't I go...." or Why didn't I say..." We have all heard the old saying that hind sight is 20/20. However, instead of focusing on the past what we should concentrate our energy on the present.
One element to leading a successful life is to focus on today and the future. We have to stop looking backwards and… Continue

My five year old's Montessori class held its annual Thanksgiving celebration feast this morning. I signed up to bring the turkey, stuffing, gravy and vegetables. Did I start cooking yesterday? No. I started cooking at 6:15am and delivered everything to the school by 10am. No sweat.
Preparing Thanksgiving dinner does not need to be stressful. I've outlined, below, a simple menu that can be thrown together very easily in a matter of a few hours.

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each time I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are… Continue
