The Moral of Griswold Family Vacations

I have never been a world traveler. I’ve only ever left the country to go to Canada, didn’t go to Walt Disney World until I was 19 years old, flew once on an airplane when I was 2 years old and not again until I was 24, and I have never been on the West Coast.

I can still remember those random winter days when we would gather for a family meeting to discuss where we wanted to go for our family vacation. Being the ten year old history buff I was, I always suggested colonial…

Teens, Tweens and Finances

We forewarned our girls that this Christmas was not going to be a big one.  The Rooster had changed jobs halfway thru the year and my business was slower than last year. Even if that hadn’t been the case, when we saw the 13 YOs “list” it made us do a double take and realized that these kids needed a severe reality check. I’ve made the comment many times that there is NOT an M.D. behind my name. Sorry for the harsh truth kids, but we are not rolling in the dough.

We “gently” advised…

Kids Who Sell Stuff… And People Who Don’t Buy

I have 3 kids which means in our time and like everyone else, we’ve sold a lot of crap. We’ve sold cookie dough, pizza making kits, wrapping paper, God awful things they considered “gifts”, magazine subscriptions and of course, Girl Scout cookies.  We are VERY lucky that the elementary school we’re at now doesn’t participate in item sales – they just ask us for pledges and donations at the beginning of the year. And then nickel and dime us the rest of the year, but that’s a different…

White and Nerdy

When I think of a segway, there are two images that come to mind. The music video to Weird Al Yankovic's Song "White and Nerdy" and the movie Mallcop with Kevin James.

I found out about a place where you could take indoor segway rides in an older mall…

THEE Answer to all my child raising issues!

One of the best things I learned that helped me dramatically through the years of raising my beautiful daughters and now helping with my amazing grandchildren is reiki (ray-key). In 1985 a friend of mine talked me into taking a Reiki I class. She convinced me that it would help the learning disabled students I worked with - so I took the class which was held at her home in Boulder, Colorado.

Well I can tell you that was a…

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…

Did TLC Go Too Far? Toddler Dressed as a Hooker?

TLC's hit show, Toddlers and Tiaras, has long engaged my gag reflex. Something about pageants in general creeps me out, but pageants featuring girls barely out of diapers? Ick. The mothers are basically insane, and the pageant judges should seriously consider adopting a new profession. I mean, they judge little girls inevening gowns. It's just wrong, people.

But not one to be outdone by…

A 4d, produced Baby scan DVD!! I’m so excited, I just had to post a quick one about this!

The time has come for another (better) look at Baby Pregnantcitygirl. By another look I mean a 3d/4d scan. For those of you not in the know these are the latest in technological advance in the baby scan world; the Rolls Royce of scans! You can have them done anywhere from 25 weeks onwards, the later in the pregnancy the better the result. We have had a few 3d scans done already, early on at the CRGH and one that I mentioned in a previous post privately at the Royal Free (we are so dying to…

Mr. and Ms. Communication

I am a typical female.  I hear 95% of everything anyone says, I process it in my chaotic, busy brain, I store it in the appropriate compartment or break it down into lists, all the while talking a mile a minute and carrying on a witty conversation.

It’s how my brain works.  It’s how most women’s brains work.

Literally, Pack Up Your Clothes and Go

It’s the idea of my son starting his second year of college and the impending move that is having me love this patented garment carrier. The Clothes and Go allows you to easily carry clothes on hangers like no other carrier, box or piece of luggage can. Simply lay it on a wide surface (bed or floor), plop down the clothes right from their hangers, secure, close and go.…

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
