Bridging The Distance With An Au Pair Candidate During The Phone Interview

A face-to-face meeting between the new host family and the au pair candidates is usually not possible, because an au pair will come directly from his/ her home country on a J-1 visa to live with the host family. However, there is the possibility of interacting through a live Skype conversation including a webcam, via e-mail and most importantly by phone.

The phone interview is a key portion of the selection process for an au pair. In addition to some questions suggested…

Taking Chances

It was another one of those nights when I couldn’t sleep. By 2am, one kid had woken up once, another twice, and I was wide awake from my efforts to get everyone back to sleep again. So, as I usually do, I

just laid there in bed thinking. Sometimes I think about what to pack

the kids for snacks for camp. Or I wonder if I forgot to put the

laundry in the dryer. Sometimes I think about the long list of things I

haven’t been able to get to. This was one of those…

What Is The Matter With Me?

This is what I asked myself the other day. Granted, that question is usually a daily utterance, after I do something like trying to start the car with a bottle of ketchup and finding my keys in the fridge.(You think I'm kidding, don't you?) Anyway, I was at my oldest son's soccer game and I met another mom who made me feel like the wallflower at a junior high dance. Initially, I felt superior because while my baby angelically at everyone, her daughter, who I called a "he", threw a 9.9 scale… Continue

To baby or not to baby, that is the question

The hubs is all about babies right now! It's been a few weeks that he's very openly expressed his want for another child. I get where he is coming from, really, I do. B is at an awesome stage right now...yes, even when its annoying and trying, the terrible two's are actually pretty awesome. She's talking like a college professor, has some very strong opinions about everything, is showing a rebellious, independent side, and is just so…

'Stay'cation recap & there's no place like home!

As I sit here and type this entry on this dreary, rainy, humid Tuesday, I'm asking myself how on earth

is it possible that I'm just as tired now as I was before Kevin and I

took our 'stay'cation? Yep! It's been back to the drawing board over

here and today feels like a Monday for me. I'm already pooped! However,

we did have a relaxing, extremely needed weekend to ourselves and it

was so nice to have the weekend for just the two of us. We laid around,

watched… Continue

5 Ways to Prepare for Natural Birth

When I became pregnant for the second time, it took visiting my local doctor once for me to decide that home birth was a must for me. And although I’d considered home birth on occasion, when I finally settled into that route for my birth, it became a life-changing endeavor for my husband and I.





Birth can be empowering. Transformative. And such a positive experience. Natural birth. Home birth. It can be all of these things and more. So, for whichever route you choose…

Back to Business

I discovered MomBloggers just in time - before today I wouldn't have had any time or space to do anything with it!


Our company left yesterday morning and now it's back to business - the business of summer!



We've just had guests stay with us for about 10 days. It was a good visit, but it was right on the heels of getting out of school for the summer, and I think my family was pretty tired.



We're all ready to not have to go anywhere or do anything… Continue

Food: A Post in Two Parts

Part I: Food, J-man, and Childhood Obesity



I was half paying attention to the Today Show today when the were covering a story about childhood obesity. Childhood obesity is, after all, all the rage for topics. Filled with dire health consequences, parental neglect (along with a good dose of guilt and shame), food makers, TV, and the Western lifestyle to blame, it makes GREAT copy for the media. And indeed, I do not at all deny that it is a real, true, honest problem. We eat…

To Tattoo Or Not

I have a dilemma. I want to get a tattoo. The perfect little Fleur de Lis on my ankle, but I am getting mixed support from my

family, and I can’t quite make up my mind.





See, I already have a tattoo…three to be exact, but I don’t count my tattooed nipples because that’s more reconstructive than self-expression. My tattoo is a

pink breast cancer ribbon tattooed above my right breast…the side I had…

Been Away

Alright, so I'm back after being away from MBC for a lloooong time!! I wasn't just away from here. I practically quit blogging on my blog as well. I only did a post here or there. Some months would only have 1 or 2 posts. I got so disheartened with the blog world. I was receiving some nasty comments. It seemed like blogging and my sites like this were just taking up WAY too much time. So, I sort of left it behind. I missed it, but I have to say that I was happy not having to worry about… Continue
