Thanks to Kristin for spending the time to allow me to interview her and for sending me a copy of her book. I enjoyed getting to know her more apart from just being an author but as a mother and individual as well. I always enjoy an author who likes to connect with her readers on a more personal level and that I feel we did with our previous interactions for this interview. I'm just as thrilled as she was when she told me that her son designed the cover for the book. It looks great and gave… Continue

Hi fellow moms!
My company is hosting the 1st Annual Mom's Night Mixer (www.HoustonMomsMixer.com). This is a great venue for other mompreneurs to advertise their businesses- especially if it's related to families, and mom's in particular. Check out the website for more info. You can put an ad in the program/directory or reserve booth space - and MomsLikeMe members get really good discounts.

Does the term "working mom" sound at all redundant? At all redundant? Exactly. Do we say someone has a sick illness, or a hungry hunger? No, because that would sound silly. So, why do we say someone is a working mom? Doesn't the definition of "mom" imply that work is involved? A lot of work? More work than pretty much any other job out there? A job from which you can't retire, or take a vacation, or even a sick day? Now, I know that the term really refers to a mother who works outside of the… Continue

Passion for cooking
I truly enjoy cooking. Something about throwing a bunch of different ingredients into a pot and coming out with something that is tasty and smells good is really rewarding for me. Here is a recipe for scallops that I made for dinner tonight.
1 lb of baby scallops
6 mushrooms diced in big chunks
1 small onion sliced thick
3 cloves of garlic minced
3 tbs of lime juice
1/4 cup of white wine
2 tbs of olive oil
I don't… Continue

Mountain Mom Report
I like my New Hampshire Mama blog. I like to check out other mom's in locations blogs too but they aren't so easy to find. I found some nice ones in England. I'd love to find other moms like me all around the world, via their blogs.

By pledging to set aside at least 10 minutes a day, we, as parents can contribute to the national goal of 1 million reading hours committed. More important, we can reinforce the importance of shared reading time in our own family. All participants will receive… Continue

Or is it something more?
Pediatric bipolar disorder is a genetic, neurobiological illness that can present in childhood or the teen years.
It is often misdiagnosed as ADHD,
or dismissed as defiance,
out-of-control behavior, and even a symptom of poor parenting.
But pediatric, or early onset bipolar disorder
is very real and requires appropriate diagnosis… Continue

In My Professional Opinion twisted the arm of our friend and fellow makeup artist extraordinaire, Jose Teneza, until he agreed to guest blog! See, Jose is one of the most knowledgeable artists this Pro knows and he works at...well, we can't tell you, but it is a very large, cosmetic retailer and we knew that he would have the inside "scoop" on natural moisturizers.

Michelle Obama’s White House garden is inspiring. The First Lady’s agricultural endeavor both introduces and reminds people to get closer to the land; to conserve Earth’s precious resources; and the importance of growing their own healthy food. For some people this is feasible; for others, both time and natural space interfere with this green-thumb movement. There are many accessible sites to help start your own garden, whether it’s an herb garden in your window sill, planting a fruit tree, or… Continue

I'm currently writing an article for Mother's Day about mamas who don't have their own mothers around. It's fascinating to me that people can raise children when their own moms are not retired, living locally, emotionally involved or alive. So, you have that happy read to look forward to. In the meantime it got me thinking about another valuable player in the extended family - the childless aunt.
I had a childless aunt who we tragically lost to breast cancer a dozen years ago… Continue

WARNING: If you love your PTA, this might not be an enjoyable post for you. (Of course, this is only my opinion/experience - I'm sure your PTA is just faaaab.)
Five years ago, when my oldest started kindergarten, I was the epitome of enthusiastic, stars-in-the-eyes, get-involved moms. I didn't have that growing up, and envied the kids who did (my mom worked full time and overtime, and didn't speak much English, and I had no dad). My kids were going to see me as a regular presence at… Continue

So many of my friends think I am one or more of the following: a certified nut crunching granola; a penny pinching miser; or a miracle worker. The truth is I am none of the above really. I do care deeply about our planet, as I only get one trip on it and I need to leave it in better condition than I found it for my children. I do try to use my dollar wisely and politically but I don't live excrutiatingly just to see how far I can go on a cent at the expense of comfort for myself or my family.… Continue

It's true, and I'll say it again, A Divided Home is a Happy Home.
Remember awhile back when I talked about cheap therapy, and then I ranted and raved about marriage and family therapist, Shelby Riley? (If you're new, you can read it here
) Well, I decided to put into practice one of her e-books, 10 Weeks to Increased Intimacy and Connection.
