I walked into a store today to pick up a picture frame and other nicknacks. After gathering my items and getting in line, an older lady looked down at my children (who were bouncing around like a couple of sugar-high human jumping jacks) and said, “I have two just like that. Well, my son has two just like that. I really think they should just have school all year round. Being out for the summer…Continue

Today has been a lazy day, but we have had a great day. It is starting to look and feel more like fall out. The leaves are not changing color as much, due to lots of rain.

I know its still a little chilly out if you are in the Northeast like me, but wherever you are, now is the time to start thinking about how your children will spend their summer. As my children were growing up (They are now 17 and 18 years old) I had one important goal for Summer: I did not want the time wasted. I grew up with days spent playing and learning. Most days of my youth were spent outside with friends and we only came home for lunch and dinner! It was a great way to…Continue

My husband will hate that I’ve shared our story. I love him, but mostly I don’t care if this bothers him or not. It’s my story too. It’s the story of how we met.
When you are in high school, everyone wants to know when you will get your driver’s license. When you are in college, everyone wants to know what you are majoring in. When you finish college, everyone wants to know where you are working. When you are working, everyone wants to know if you are dating anyone. When you are…Continue

Hi, it’s me standing on my soap box. Yes… again.
Moms make difficult decisions every day: Should I buy the generic diapers on sale or should I splurge on name brand? Breast or bottle? Is my child crying because he really needs something or is he crying because he’s a little fussy? Despite the unsolicited advice and lectures I have endured regarding my…Continue

My name doesn’t describe who I am very well. Jennifer isn’t an adjective.
If names were meant to describe who we are, mine would be: Clumsy, Awkward, ForgetfulContinue

In case you’re wondering why I look a little taller today, it’s because I’m standing on my mommy soap box. Check out Mommy DIY if you don’t want to read my statement, otherwise, read on.
I want to be a good mom, I really do, but I have no idea what I am doing! While I was pregnant I studied parenting literature, questioned other moms, and prepared myself for baby. Lately, people just tell me what to do when I’m…Continue

I talk about myself a lot. But then again, this is the place to do so. This is MY blog.
On Twitter I am known as DCWorkingMommy. Why? Because I am a mommy who works in Washington, D.C. Clever, no?
I don’t talk about the specifics of what I do, however I share some of the drama that I sometimes encounter.

I’m aware of the fact that I dream every night, although I usually (and thankfully) forget the specifics. The subject matter has not improved with age. When I used to suffer nightmares about showing up at school naked, I now suffer nightmares about showing up at work naked. Must say, my post-breastfeeding boobs look pretty good. I still dream about running and not getting anywhere, falling out of the sky, and being trapped in a car underwater. This might be a cry for help, but mostly I think…Continue

Snow; a word that incites panic and excitement. Panic for the adults and excitement for the young and young at heart.
On Friday afternoon, there was nervous office chatter about the snow and wintry weather headed our way. If you don’t know what that means in Washington, D.C., let me illustrate a picture for you. Although it is not necessary to stock up on toilet paper and water, it is necessary to conform with all the other panic-stricken zombies who are. Go to the grocery store…Continue

I remember that afternoon at the office water cooler. Two of my co-workers were discussing their summer reading lists. I jumped in to the conversation by admitting I couldn’t remember the last time I had read a book and I was curious if they had any recommendations.
When I was growing up, if I didn’t have a Barbie in my hand, I had a book. Yes, I was that kid. It started with an encyclopedia…Continue
