There are some misconceptions about my parenting skills floating around out there and I think I need to clear some of them up. For honesty sake. For clarity. And for me. 'Cause it's fun!
I do not have a baby potty in my kitchen for my - potty trained for over a year - 3 year old to use. With 4 bathrooms in this house, that would simply be a waste of time and open up the opportunity for my 1 year old to get to it before I do. And if she does.... well, let's just say the water bill… Continue

Money Money Money. Mon-ey. Totally got that song stuck in my head.
I have a secret. I am not a millionaire. I'm not even an eighth of a millionaire. Heck, not even a sixteenth of one. In fact, to some I'm sure we are 'poor'. I'm ok with poor. We live rich.… Continue

We found this artisan design company, Village Designs, at a trade show earlier this year. We’ve been waiting for the appropriate season to roll in again to mention their unique take on holiday decorations. Their… Continue

I tend to have a one-track mind. Once I start something, that's it; everything else kinda gets put on the back burner until that thing is done. I've always known this about myself, but every now and then the reality of my blinders hits me. The most recent focus of my time and energy has been my blog. I get up in the morning… Continue

December in New Jersey. Day 6.
The Winter Solstice is quickly approaching and it's only getting colder
outside. I've heard reports that other portions of the state have had
snow already, however I have not. Spring time seems to be an eternity
away and all I can do is wait. I'm still freezing. But I'm coping.
Perhaps anyone who finds this journal will be able to find it helpful
with their survival...… Continue

The Panhandle of Texas is an interesting place. It is as flat as the proverbial pancake. It is a place where the wind blows constantly and the dirt is comprised of the finest red sand, permeating the skin, teeth, and nasal cavities. Tumbleweeds travel freely for miles because there is nothing to break their flight, and it is every shade of… Continue

I love the style of the 60s. The big bouffant hair, the mod little
miniskirts, the slim cigarette pants, and the effortless cool look of
the cat eye. When I think of that era I think of sexy Bond girls like
Ursula Anderson, and sultry movie starlets like Raquel Welch. But my
favorite star and one of my top style icons has to be Bridget Bardot.
Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot was… Continue

We had a friend's daughter here the other morning. From about 7:45 to 2, I had four wonderful, happy, playing children. They colored, played school, basketball, watch Mickey Mouse and thoroughly enjoyed each other's company. It was really nice. I was not beckened every five seconds and actually managed to get some things I wanted to do, done!
I savored it. Drank it in. Relished the peaceful play. Pretended it was all because I was a good mother and sitter.
And then she… Continue

Okay - I have come to conclusion that I needed a help with my blog that I put up in so long. Just a little of touch up like social media buttons, my blog button, so forth.

I considered myself to be a pretty healthy eater until this past Tuesday when I attended a lecture called "Special Diets for Special Children." As if traveling and eating healthy wasn't hard enough, now I'm faced with traveling and supporting a special diet for my kids. Talk about pre-planning...

I highlighted my scar with a marker smiley-face so you could see it. What's its story? In Christmas 1979, we were at the table for the big Christmas meal when my grandpa went to pass a dish, accidentally knocking over a taper candle, which fell on my wrist momentarily catching my wrist on fire. And… Continue

Santa won't be stopping at our house, this year or ever. This is a topic very dear to my heart and I know it's a very sensitive issue but I had to share the perspective of a family who does not "do" the whole Santa Claus thing....

It is inevitable that sooner or later, our "precious angels" will challenge our authority and power as their parents. Little do they know, we are usually always a step ahead and have the benefit of knowing them better than they know themselves... Continue
My recommendations are to not force or use intimidation to "control" their behavior. Remember, even though we are parents, we still don't have the God given ability to "control" another human beings behavior and attempting this with a…

For This stay at home mom/nanny it is quite a treat to be able to go to a
comedy show and Ball in the same weekend. Since most of my weekends are
spent playing catch up on loads of laundry, dishes or anything else
that needs to be done over the weekend, this Cinderella actually had the
chance to put make up on, dress cute and laugh and drink a little too
much. (Read More)

Today I took my first steps inside a gym (to actually use the equipment rather then the joining process or to have a look around) for a loooooooooooooooooong time. The last time I worked out in one was when I lived in London and I used to go to a Government run gym in Swiss Cottage, North London maybe 8 years ago or so! Blimey! Where do the years go?! Continue
'The Lawyer' and I both became members of a gym company here aptly (and laughingly) called…
