Best Blinds for Families

Keeping a neat, tidy, and beautiful home can be a challenge when you have kids, but it can be done. You just have to be smart about how you decorate.

For example, leather furniture is much easier to clean than suede, and…

Eating After a Lip Lift

A lip lift is an operation that modifies the appearance of the lips to a more appealing one. It reshapes them to enhance the facial area above the lips. Most people who undergo this procedure usually have an elongated gap between their noses and lips and want to make the…

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…

The Devil Hates You

That's what my husband said to me last night.  I had just told him I was really unhappy and felt like I was being punished for 15 years of selfish decisions.  He saw it differently.  This is what he had to say:



We have two incredible children.  The older is brilliant and funny and incredibly hard to lead.  He lives life with complete emotion and isn't easily swayed to do what he knows is wrong.  The younger brought to earth the joy of heaven and a smile that can brighten even the… Continue

MamaBlogger365 – HOW CAN WE IMPROVE The Experience of MOTHERHOOD by Patrice Moerman/ Posted by Joy Rose for JOIN MAMA

This is from my friend Patrice Moerman who is part of the MAMAPALOOZA Festival in Washington DC.

The MAMABLOGGER365 series examines these issues and attempts to answer the question(s) 'What is a mother' and what are the issues mothers face'. All while raising awareness for the brand new 'Museum Of Motherhood'. -- Would love your input, help, participation and friendship.…

All about My Mother: How Touch Helps Us Take Risks

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=all-about-my-motherStrong emotional bonds between mothers and infants increase children’s willingness to explore the world—an effect that has been observed across the animal kingdom, in people, monkeys and even spiders. The more secure we are in our attachment to Mom, the more likely we are to try new things and take risks. Now researchers are discovering that this… Continue
