For years, home-cooked meals were placed on the back burner and we “treated” the family to fast-food more than multiple times a week. This was hurting our health and was depleting our wallet faster than the paycheck was rolling in. Desperate for a change, and after a…Continue

So...if you've been following me on social media, you know that Mila has turned the big T-W-O! Which means now we enter those "terrible two's" that everyone talks about! I've never really thought there was any truth behind that stage, or maybe I just thought that all kids have their difficult phase at different times, because all kids grow differently, right? Well, in my case, I was WRONG!…Continue

Are you the kind of mom who buys both her clothing and her wine from Target? Can you tell a Sofia from a Fancy Pants? Hobbs & Hayworth are back with a TARGET white wine taste test. The comedic duo selected three of “Tar-jay’s” finest vintages to sample. It’s possible they may have just chosen them by the looks of their pretty bottles. See how Harmony and Audrey did at identifying the different types…Continue

Being a mom means lots of different things. As a mom you are responsible for other beings. You have someone else to take care of, provide for, teach about life, and protect. We are the ones who give hugs and cuddles, wipe away tears and give words of encouragement. We are housekeepers and…Continue

Recently I had the privilege of taking Illy out on a date. We'd been talking about it for a while and were long past due for an outing, but there always seemed to be something else going. "Dates" don't always have to be a big outing, in fact, some of our dates have been a sweet treat and girlie movie. No BOYS allowed! ;) This time, however, I wanted to do something special and…Continue

It had been a while since the last time Illy and I had gone on a date. Sure, we'd done things together as a family, but it wasn't concentrated time with just us. We checked out the calendar, selected a date, and put our names in the box. This was our date and Nothing was going to change that... hopefully. Well, the day finally arrived and, although I was already tired from a full day out with all three…Continue

Some people would say that the cost of silence is free. Those people are not mothers. There is always a cost. Like when your toddler is having a full on tantrum during the 2nd hour of a 14 hour trip so you give him the remaining ½ of a chocolate bar knowing full well that it will leave the worst mess on him, the car seat, the car, etc. but your sanity and that of your husbands is well worth the mess. Or maybe you plopped junior in front of the TV…Continue

For some time now, I have thought about writing something in support (aka protest) for Moms WHO DO IT ALL!!!(or those that think they do). It wasn't until the other day that something in the news inspired me to get this going.
Let me backtrack for a moment, when I found out I was expecting my first child in 1999, I was twenty five years old; old enough to become a mother, but still young enough to be naïve about what it took to be successful parent.
Though I totally loved my…

I just recently read a comment on a friend's blog about her decision to stay home for her next baby girl.. while I don't want to be part of the already ridiculous fervor of the so-called "mommy wars", the comment struck a nerve with me. Especially because, the comment's last sentence meant that (although I know the comment has nothing to do with me and I could just be projecting here) the choice of going to work means that one's priorities aren't straight. In any case, stay at home,…Continue

Lately, I have two types of days. A good day, and a miserable day. Today was a good day. I took a leave of absence from work to deal with what's going on in my life. Good for me and my kids, terrible for my wallet. But my routine became to wake up, take kids to school, come back home, crawl into bed and just lay there. Sometimes I would sleep away the day, escaping the misery I was feeling, other days I would just lay there…Continue

I'm a new mom with ants in my pants. Well, maybe I'm not so much ansty as busy. Along with my newborn I have a part time job, a business to run AND I'm trying to maintain a small amount of an adult social life. I know I am not the only mom with this kind of a schedule. Along with changing places I am frequently…Continue
