Children keep you young” is quite possibly the biggest lie told to parents in the history of parenthood. Right up there with beating with leather belts will somehow discipline them in a good way!
First, the facts. Carrying a child, sucks out all of your nutrients, leeches your gums, ruins your breasts, mottles your once lovely skin tone and adds a layer of fat to your stomach that simply will never go away unless, of course, you go the surgical route.
On a mental health… Continue

I love denim because it is extremely versatile. It allows you to, effortlessly, transition from a dress down day with the kids to a flawless evening outfit for an outing with the girls or your favorite guy.
Here are four easy steps that will turn the most basic of outfits; jeans and a t-shirt, into a fabulous ensemble, perfect for a lunch date, a movie date or for anytime you need a little confidence boost.

This Friday J and I will celebrate five years of marriage, hence the Ooph logo. I spent some time Sunday looking through our wedding photos and reminiscing about the day we got married. I know I am biased but it was an insanely fun wedding, complete with hay bales, cowboy hats, Budweiser and margarita popsicles to help our guests cope with the hot September afternoon. I have only looked at the photos one other time right after the wedding and… Continue

So I know we are all busy with our lives and families, careers and relationships. Life seems to be moving ahead at a ”Warp 10 Mr. Sulu” rate (I promise that is the first and last Start Trek reference ever in this blog!) and we are all looking to technology to help us keep things straight or speed things up. We have email, Twitter, Facebook, texting and of course cell phones attached to all of our wrists. When things are moving this quickly, it is comforting to know that some things cannot and… Continue

I am a firm believer that things don’t happen without a good reason. I have always believed that everything happens within a bigger plan and when we look back on it later it will seem so obvious. I will also say that my experience has been that when I am in the midst of the drama it can be quite difficult to see what the hell it all means. It has happened this way almost every step of my life. For most calamities I have come to terms and found some peace in the way things turned out. There are… Continue

Am I the only one that likes finding obscure blogs? When I come across a blog that already has 1200 followers or 25 comments on every post I get a little turned off. Of course there are some exceptions. But as a general rule for me I like finding great new blogs. I don't know why this is.
I am the same way with following people on Twitter. The only people I follow on Twitter with thousands of followers are people like Oprah. I'm also this way with discussion forums - unless it's something… Continue

In today's world, almost every product created for children is just that, already created. The place to grow, imagine and be creative is hard to do when an opportunity isn't available. A paint by numbers coloring book tells you exactly where to paint and with what colors. Step by step instructions on how you should paint. A doll is already dressed in perfectly matched clothes with matching accessories. A building is already created, all is left is to add your men. The baby toy is complete with… Continue

That’s right: I cosleep with my baby. It is not something I do because I’m too lazy or inept to make him sleep on his own, or because I have some unhealthy need to make him overly dependent on me, or because I am simply too stupid to know better. It was not a “bad habit” that we formed. It is a conscious decision that I made based on research and what felt right for us.
This is a topic that has come up a lot for me recently. There’s been discussions with fellow co-sleepers about… Continue

We didn’t know our garage was being used as a crack house until this weekend when we cleaned it out. Judging by how long we’ve had some of the lawn products where we discovered the evidence, this appears to be a two-year operation.
We wouldn’t have suspected a thing if Skye hadn’t purchased a...[Please Continue Reading]… Continue
