You may have heard the recent uproar about Baby Einstein's parent company, Disney, offering refunds on many of their DVDs after research has emerged that "educational" videos for infants and toddlers do live up to their claims. This comes after a growing number of research studies have shown little or no correlation between children's viewing of such videos and advances in language development. In fact, some research has shown delays in children's language development associated with viewing… Continue

My husband had a work party last night. I was so excited to get out. I had arranged babysitting and was determined to enjoy an evening with my spouse. Of course my little sidekick got to come, but after toting six children, toting one didn't seem like a big deal.
I've been feeling a tad frumpy, so I decided to go shopping. Now when I say shopping, I mean: go to Target, pray I find something cute, try it on in the largest dressing room so that the cart fits, change fast enough that… Continue

I did something stupid for which I am positive there are going to be repercussions. I knew I shouldn’t while I was in the middle of dialing. My heart was racing and that’s usually when I know. Wait. Don’t act now. I’m very familiar with this warning signal, and yet this time I couldn’t stop myself.
Dear Self, please try not to tell off people at doctors’ offices. It never ends well. Especially don’t tell someone off on their voicemail. Look what happened to Tiger Woods when he left a… Continue

I love Moody Mama's because they have transformed the way woman feel about maternity clothes once and for all. I don't know about you but I spent hours crying over what I looked like while pregnant and how clothes looked. I cried about those ugly jeans that go all the way to your neck (ok, not really but after wearing low rise jeans for so long that's what they… Continue

Pose this question to 10 different people and each one will have a different answer.
While in Cabo for Thanksgiving, I ran into a friend from high school I hadn’t seen in more than 20 years. We spent a few minutes catching up, and then he asked if my husband and I would like to go out with him and his friends that evening. Read More

I love Christmas... I really do. I love driving around, seeing the lights on everyone's houses and growl at those that don't have lights. This year, I feel a bit stressed. You see, I'm an early Christmas shopper. Love to have all mine done BEFORE Thanksgiving. Didn't happen. We moved in September and now I'm scrambling.
Just add me to the long list of people doing last minute shopping. What about you? Are you done??
Last year around this same time, I offered up a holiday cookie exchange. This year, once again, I'm asking for recipes for a favorite holiday treat. You can leave your recipe in the comments, or link to a post of your own. I'll keep an updated running list for the month of December.
Recently my hubby Chris and 15-year-old son Josh took a road trip across the state together. It was a long drive, and at one point Chris said to Josh, "I'm getting tired here, I need you to talk to me for a while."
Josh dutifully unplugged himself from his iPod and asked, "What do you want to talk about?"
"I dunno," Chris said yawning. "Um…why don't you tell me the first thing you'd like to do when you get your driver's… Continue

This is a follow up to my previous Tiger Woods blog. Forgiveness is something we all need. Is that not true? I mean think about your worst transgression, now think about if everybody in America knew it. Know think about the person you are, and how you truly are not that worst trangression. You would not want anyone judging your entire life on your worst transgression. You are more than that. You are better than your worst flaw, your worst mistake. I think this needs to be said… Continue
This morning I was awakened with a gentle stroke of a finger against my cheek. As I slowly stirred, reluctant to leave behind my dreamy slumber, that errant finger again tickled my cheek. I opened my foggy eyes intent on ridding myself of the pesky intruder until I saw him smiling at me. His soft brown eyes twinkled and silently said “hello my sweet, I didn’t want to leave without saying goodbye.”
I sheepishly smiled in return, knowing my face was flushed, my hair tousled and… Continue
I did it yesterday. I accidentally dropped the bomb.
I let the S word slip from my mouth in front of the children as I was driving them to school. My son immediately picked up on my mistake and began gleefully using it so expertly, I almost believed he comprehended the import of what I had just done.
I had just corrupted my children.
You must understand the level of shame and guilt I felt. I am not one of those mothers! In fact, I barely can drop those kinds of… Continue

There are so many factors that go into starting and promoting a successful site/blog. If you've read my blog for any amount of time (if you're new to the blog welcome!) then you already know how I feel that keyword research and SEO (search engine optimzation) or two of the most important factors to being successful online.
Whenever I'm doing keyword research I also do some "competition" research right along with it. I go look at the top 5 to 10 results and I "size" them up. One of… Continue
I’m downsizing. I weaned off of my prescription for anxiety now that I don’t need it anymore. It was making my ADHD worse because it suppresses dopamine. But now I keep trying to shove other stuff in my brain. I keep trying to tweak it, to feel better, then feel better than that. I’ll use anything, food, caffeine, music, movies. I tried meds for ADHD. I tried wellbutrin briefly but it kicked my neuroreceptors’ butt. I would have preferred a gentle nudge. I tried herbs that have to build up in… Continue

As far as Tiger Woods goes: We all make mistakes. We all have skeletons in our closets. I say this because I am not perfect and I have no right to throw stones. The troubles Tiger is having just brings to light a larger issue that no one talks enough about. When you cheat on your spouse, you cheat on your children. he pain in this world felt by so many children of divorce or conflict over infidelity is immeasurable and so damaging. Most people will still love Tiger, and most people will still… Continue
