Cheers! Summer is officially here. And based on the weather here, summer didn't want anyone to forget it.
It was H-O-T all week.
After weeks of back and forth warm-and-then-cold-rainy-days, summer is here full throttle. And I'm excited that our tall, seeding grass will die back soon, so I can perhaps breathe clearly again. Sniff sniff.

I'm thrilled to announce that Four Little Monsters has recently partnered with Better Homes & Gardens to represent the great state of Pennsylvania in the first ever "State Cookie Contest". That's right! Four Little Monsters is Pennsylvania's one-and-only cookie delegate and will attempt to out-bake forty-nine other blogger delegates from all the other states. Can we do it? Of course, we can!
This weekend, I'll be crazy in the kitchen coming up with the winning recipe (Duh) and…

So, here I am on the Mom Bloggers Club! Among my own kind finally! How fabulous is that? I would love to meet all the mom's and interview them on my show -- mom to mom! Sounds so fun! I hope you will consider it! In the meantime, here is a little news on me today. I was so excited to share my Power Mom Food Fund passion of feeding and funding families and it's so rare I get to see good news on myself that I am fairly brimming with excitement. I hope you don't mind if I share! Cheers…Continue

As my kids grow older, I'm becoming a sucker for anything that measures how little they are at this stage in their lives. I love crafts that use their finger or handprints, like here and here. I have their infant footprints framed in my bedroom. I imagine that twenty years from now I will cherish all things that…Continue

Would you recognize the signs of a heart attack in yourself or a loved one? I thought I knew all of the signs and found out I was wrong. Earlier this year Dr. D's mother died very unexpectedly of a heart attack. I became motivated to educate myself as much as possible about heart disease which is the number one killer of women in the United States. I'm very passionate now…Continue

I love that term. But I can take no credit for it. Me-Covery is actually marketing-speak. It’s a term coined by well-known marketing firm, Saatchi & Saatchi, to describe how consumers are now looking for ways to take care of themselves (a recovery of self), especially following the financial and emotional hardships caused by our Great Recession.
Indeed, as overworked, overburdened, overstressed women, doesn’t a little ME-covery sound perfect just about……Continue

The mind of Temple Grandin is fascinating because it works very differently from most of ours. She is a visual thinker, thinking in pictures. Recently there was an HBO movie about her life, starring Claire Danes, that won many awards. The movie beautifully illustrates how her mind works.
Why does this matter? What can we learn from Temple…Continue

I had big plans to make the decorations for Em's Easter birthday party. They were all crafts that came from toilet paper or paper towel rolls, and I thought they would be an easy touch to her party, something homemade by her brother and me. But as the date approached and I had more and more things on my plate, the crafts were pushed to the wayside. It was all well and good because her party was beautiful just the way it was, with…Continue
