Life gets so crazy and we all tend to get so caught up in our own little worlds. I know for me that during the week I get little time for anything outstide of my work, son and household.
My parents retired about 3 years ago and moved to an adult community. They absolutely love it and now have a more active social life than I do. And even though they now live closer to me than they did before, I don’t get to see them very much.
I am lucky. My parents are still young and… Continue

I have a problem. I cannot help myself when it comes to collecting recipes. I clip them from magazines or newspapers, get them from friends and coworkers, and print so many off the web. They are tucked away into piles and binders and envelopes all over the house. And I haven't yet mentioned the many back issues of Martha, Bon Appetit, Cook's Illustrated, and so on- I CAN'T just toss them- what if there's a recipe I might want? But finally I had to face it-… Continue

I am so sick of people telling me I need to stop being so overprotective. I tell NO ONE how to parent. So why do people think it's ok to criticize my parenting.
I don't want to run down the list of awards and recognition my boys have received...let's just say they have themselves together. Those awards should have our names in the fine print because we are damn good people and caring parents.
I am dealing with my children growing up and moving on as best I can, thank you… Continue

see what everyone is saying- great responses and so helpful! :) www.mamanotes.com
I hope ya'll can help me out today because I have a few questions!
1. How do you bathe your children? Up until recently we always took showers with Lucas. It was the easiest and Lucas seemed to like it. We only used the baby bath thing for a few days after he was born- he hated it! Now I think he would enjoy a bath better because it would allow him to play, but we haven't figure out the best… Continue

My mum keeps telling me that my beloved Grandmother (who was an entrepreneur and workaholic) used to say all the time "Holidays are bad. You switch off from everything and you face hell when trying to get back into a routine. So, you should never go on holiday" Well she never really said "Hell" as such, that is more my interpretation of it.

The past couple of days have been a bit hellish, the kids have hit the school holiday 'lets wind each other up every five minutes' kick and no matter what I seem to do nothing will go smoothly.
I decided to do some baking with the girls yesterday, whilst hubby was out, for a bit of four on one time with mummy. Everything went ok apart from the fighting over who was licking the spoon etc but the one thing I found the hardest is that 22month old is a bit too young to get involved with… Continue

The best thing I’ve ever done with my life is to be a wife and mother to our two boys. All the pretty pictures pass through my mind…the breastfeeding, crawling, walking, first day of school…. Then BOOM! Our oldest is walking up to the podium to give his valedictorian speech. AND BAM! Our youngest is “graduating” from 8th grade.
"Athletic" (oldest) wanted to move out right after graduation. Lucky for me he is only 17 so I told him I would not allow him to leave until he was… Continue

As opposed to a conventional copywriter who tend to mull over each comma, sentence, word or decimal point whenever they write, bloggers are freer and better at writing out nice little articles or blog entries that contains substance. The difference between what a writer produces and what a blogger produces is this – the length.
The lengthier it is, the easier it is to lose your audience
I don’t claim to be an authority of any sort in this respect although I blog AND I… Continue

I put together a new recipe last night and it was DELICIOUS. The best part is that it's simple to make and tastes like you spent hours. I served the sea bass with grilled asparagus and small grain brown rice.
Soak one bunch of asparagus in water for at least an hour. Drain and coat lightly with olive oil and salt. Grill on high for three minutes.
Short Grain Brown Rice
Combine two… Continue

I'd love to help other moms find products that are fun, unique, and useful. As an aspiring business owner, I do tons of market research on the net, in stores, and in magazines to see what other companies are doing. I have subscriptions to most major parenting magazines, industry magazines like Baby and Children's Product News, Earnshaws, and even study magazines from Europe. I'm constantly studying magazines to see what the new product might be not just for my business, but for me personally.… Continue
