I am the proud mother of two boys, ages 4 and 16 months old.  Though they look similar, they are as different as night and day. Even my pregnancies were different. (I will share that experience on another blog.)  I had my first baby at age 39 and my little guy at 42.  Some had the opinion that maybe I was too mature (OLD) to have a baby. Though they are entitled to…

#ASKAWAYFRIDAY with Jodi From The Noise of Boys

It has been two weeks since I participated in #ASKAWAYFriday because of the holidays.  I love connecting with new bloggers and learning more about them.  I decided to participate because I don’t always share a ton of information about myself and thought it was a great way for everyone to get to know me on a personal basis.  For those who don’t know what #ASKAWAYFriday is, you exchange a set of 10 questions for another blogger to answer. Below are 10 questions that Jodi asked me and I hope…

My Bad Mommy Moment

I don't know what it is about October but it has been one hellacious month. My days have been packed full of meetings and nearly every project that's on my plate is in high gear.  I'm also traveling every weekend this month which means I spend Thurdays and Friday nights frantically packing as well as prepping Dr. D. to watch D2 over the weekend. To add to it all, D2 has been…

What's in a Name?

Does my son know I'm his mother?

About a week ago I was picking D2 up from the half-day toddler program at Montessori and just making chit chat with his teacher. I asked her how he was doing. "He's doing great" she tells me, "but he keeps asking for someone named Eva. Who takes care of him in the afternoon?" I tell her Eva is his…

What Your Jealousy is Telling You

Put Jealousy in Perspective

Last weekend I watched the hilarious comedy Bridesmaids.  Besides being a side-splittingly funny view of two best friends' (one the bride and the other the maid of honor) adventures in wedding planning, there was a serious message about jealousy.  The protagonist, who is…

Number Two on the Brain

I've got #2 on the brain. Not that number two. I'm talking baby number two. It's not a coincidence because lately it seems everyone is wondering if I'll have a second baby. I find this questioning only slightly less invasive than having  my belly felt up when I was pregnant. D2 turns two in November and whenever anyone asks me how old he is, it's always…

Soul-destroying Meetings, Chatty Cathys and Other Workplace Time Sucks

When I was a young singleton working for a large PR agency in New York, I was always jealous of my married colleagues who would leave the office "early" (that's 6pm in the PR agency world) to pick up children from daycare or relieve nannies. The rest of us worker bees would work until about 8 or 9 at night. We'd often slag on the offending managing director behind her…

How to Get Ready for Work in 15 Minutes Flat

Oh, how I fondly remember those days before having D2 when I could roll out of bed at the last minute, listen to the news while eating breakfast and then head off to work. Those days are long gone. I now pride myself in being able to get ready in the morning in less than 15 minutes. It's not something I set out to do but after I had D2 there was so much more that needed to…

How to Rebuild Your Local Economy One Job at a Time

You don't have to be an economist to know the economy sucks right now.  Unemployment has yet to drop below 9% and in some states like my adopted home state of North Carolina, that figure is way above 10%.  Fourteen million people out of work and those are just the ones still being counted. It's downright depressing. This week the media is abuzz about President Obama's job…

How Much is TMI at Work?

A few weeks ago I coached a successful business woman who was struggling to understand why her staff didn't trust or confide in her. One of the key pieces of feedback she received was that she was too impersonal.  Her staff complained (anonymously) that they felt like they didn't really know her and that she didn't take time to understand their personal lives outside of…

Where's Your Easy Button?

This past Saturday I went grocery shopping with D2 in tow.  He was restless and trying to escape from the cart's child safety belt as the checkout clerk loaded our cart up with bags. Observing that I clearly had my hands full, the bag boy asked me if I needed any help out to my car. I told him, "No, thanks.  I got it."Just the other night, I was putting D2 down for bed with our…

The Taming of the Shrew?

My boss, a retired Navy admiral, likes to tell this joke about a conversation he had with his wife:

Her: You're the General and I'm the Major.

Him: That's great! Sounds good to me.

Her: Right. You make all of the general decisions and I make the major ones.

 

I love this joke. It got me thinking though. I was talking with a good friend the other night…

Working Mom Maintenance: High or Low?

I've just had my first hair appointment since returning from vacation a week and a half ago and I have to say I am feeling pretty great. My amazing stylist, Carl, decided to switch up my normally shoulder length bob to a shorter version for the summer. It's inspired by the classic Vidal Sassoon bob and I am loving it.

Over the years, my maintenance routine has varied with my job…

Liar. Liar.

Why Telling the Truth is Hard

We are hosting Dr. D.'s three nieces  (two aged 11 and a 7 year old) for the summer and it's certainly been an adventure to go from one toddler to four kids in the house. One of the things I've  observed in the time the girls have been with us is how much elementary school aged children lie. Over the past several days I've caught the girls in any number of lies ranging from big ("We…
