Just Give Me the Control-top Panties!

Yesterday was a lesson in control. A reminder of how little I have and a challenge to attain much more than I want. It was the Monday at the start of our three-week spring break, and I had to play mom the whole day. That is a role that has some annoying tendencies, but I guess I have no choice but to keep playing my part.

"Children...will you please join us for a family meeting."

As we sat in the playroom/ husbands' office I reminded our oldest (at…

A Love that Never Dies

“You taught me how to love; you taught me how to live; you taught me how to laugh; you taught me how to cry, but when you left, you forgot to teach me how to forget you.” ~ Hendie

Not too long ago, my mother was telling me about a friend of hers, Anita, who recently lost her husband after a long battle with cancer. Anita and her husband were married for almost fifty years, and were only a few weeks shy of celebrating their anniversary. Theirs was a symbiotic relationship - their… Continue

Yes, the Little Things Matter: Parents' Role in Helping Kids Become Socially Competent

Parents out there you know how it goes: you play the same game over and over again with your toddler or you help them put together a puzzle. This is the daily "stuff" of parenting and you may feel it doesn't make a difference. Well, turns out, it does make a difference! A recent… Continue

Surviving the Move

You spoke and thankfully, I listened.

To all of you who commented with moving advice on my blog post over at – if I could reach through this computer screen and give you a big squeezy hug, I would. I owe you my sanity. What those comments confirmed was that if you want the very best advice – go…

Meatloaf With a Side of Mathematics

I’m not like most mothers…or so I thought. I don’t particularly care to read to my kids at night (I end up wanting to go to sleep), I hated bath time (even with a book and a glass of wine) and enrolling my kids in endless activities and chauffeuring them around seems like utter torture. Don’t get me wrong, I love my children, but a lot of the… Continue

The Power of Our Beliefs

“Fear is faith that it won’t work out.” ~ Author unknown

While watching a comedy sitcom in which a kid was trying to learn how to swim, I saw my daughter become pensive for a moment. Then, with a puzzled look spreading across her little face, she said: “If I can swim, why is he having such a hard time with it? He can just float.”

I tried to remind her of when she didn’t know how to swim either, and how apprehensive she was when the swimming instructor first… Continue

Virtual Jewelry Party?

I just did this for my friend and it worked really well. She didn't want to host a typical jewelry party, but she did want to earn free jewelry. We decided to do a virtual jewelry party. She sent out an email to all of her friends and family and invited them to her online jewelry party. They selected her name as their hostess and she received a percentage of the sale in free jewelry.

If this is something you are interested in, please check out my website and look under hostess…

Recycling rates in Mass...very disappointing

This is a sad article about the stats for recycling in Mass.

I really thought they would be better, considering how much information is out there about how important it is to recycle.

Here are more of my thoughts on this article.

Please share your comments, and get the grade for…

Sibling Sunday - The Oldest

My first Sibling Sunday post is about my 12 year old step-son. He’s the oldest of our bunch and shares both parents with his younger 9 year old sister – their mother is baby momma #1 or the “nice one” as I like to call her.

Step-son is a very proud and protective person. You can tell that he holds his chest high above his sisters like he’s responsible for

whatever they’re doing and always keeps them in check.

Dog Wellness - Pet Killer Medicines

If you are a conscientious dog owner then you know the areas of focus for dog wellness, including exercise, diet, health and nutrition.

Are you also aware of the pet killer medicines that are probably in

your home right now and perhaps not put away safely?

When it comes to our children it goes without saying how very careful, maybe even paranoid we are about medicines of any kind left lying around the house. Are you as…

Not enough hands

I am a stay-at-home mom. I "retired" three years ago and now have an almost 3 year old and a 13 month old. I just started a little business venture and I feel like there isn't enough of me to go around. I don't know how you moms with full time jobs do it. Any advice?

Spring Break 2010

What would have been our first family vacation with our daughter has fallen through. We had planned to go to Valdosta, GA to Wild Adventures theme park. We booked the hotel and then come to find out, even though the park is open, its not open on the days we had planned to go. Option #1 - go earlier and pay extra hotel rates for weekend or Option #2 - find something else to do. We opted for #2 and I am now in charge of planning our hybrid staycation. My idea is that since we really haven't… Continue

How much sympathy?

How much sympathy do you have for homeless people or those that beg on the street? No, they are not always one and the same thing. Yes, sometimes they are one and the same thing.

The answer to this question lies much in the fact of whether or not you have ever lived in a big city where you go downtown often enough to really have contact with those who beg or live or both on the street.

You don’t get much of it in Small Town USA. One reason is because of

our loitering laws…

I Need to Punch Something

Ok, I’m pissy – I’ve talked to some friends and my husband, but I’m still pissy. So, if you do not like curse words – please DO NOT read on because there are a lot.
