Last week I posted about not qualifying fathers as "active." I'd like to believe that one day we will drop these adjectives from parental descriptions, so that we will be just "dads" and "moms" and not "active dads" or "working mothers." Especially, as the reality of dads who are involved with their children and moms that work become…Continue

Last week we were all stuck at home due to a lengthy visit from winter storm Pax. (Side note: "Pax" means kiss of peace, which made it one of the most horribly named storms ever.) Since I work for a business that doesn't close due to weather, that meant I was working from home. And my son was home from school. And those two things are not meant to mix.…Continue

Career-wise, I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. (I think we've talked about that before.) Once I dropped ballerina and astronaut off my potential job list, life got a little less interesting. But, I've always known that I wanted to be a mom. And now my life is interesting every day because of my son. I never know what that kid will say…Continue

There is a legend passed down amongst mothers. The details differ depending on who tells it, but it is about a woman who is able to fulfill her duties in a rewarding job, then be the perfect wife and mother to multiple children, all while still volunteering at PTA events and holding monthly cocktail parties. She also makes an excellent souffle.
It is the myth of the…Continue
Mommy Masters welcomes Ryan Currie, who shares great tips for mompreneurs.
Being a mom is the hardest job in the world…everyone knows that! But combine the responsibilities of motherhood and entrepreneurialism? It’s a recipe to quickly becoming overworked, overstressed, and overextended. The toughest part of all is figuring out how to find the time to work on business while staying home…
Emotions are integral part of any human being. All the behaviour, attitude rather the whole well-being depends on how emotionally you are balanced.

It is fantastic to balance obligations at home and work by avoiding concentrating on either area to excess. Excess is commonly defined as an amount that is more than necessary, permitted, or desirable. It is not ideal to live in excess. Balancing our obligations to home and to work is a balancing act. When I think of it I always think of a seesaw with the things I need to do for home on one side and the things I need to do for work on the other side. A reality is that many women work at home…Continue

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.
As you settle into the new year, do you sometimes feel like time is getting away from you? I make list after list of what I want to accomplish each day – and often get a large chunk completed - but never seem to get everything done. Now that I make my lists on my PDA, it's easier to just change the date and roll the reminders over to the next day. Yet the sense of satisfaction that I feel when I do finish a…Continue

I remember clearly being asked when my eldest started pre-school, "what are you going to do with all your free time?" At that point I still had a toddler under foot so really, what free time? Same question arose when the eldest went to kindergarten. The 2 yo went to pre-school from 9-12 and the newly minted Kindergartener from 11:15 to 3. The drive to one school from the other, twenty-two minutes in the Batmobile. Finally the youngest started kindergarten, he too went at 11:15 which meant…Continue
When we last left our friend, Nancy, she was living the dream… drinking acidic beverages & eating acidic foods; like they weren’t going to make them again. She’s paying for all of this debauchery, friends; Nancy just had her yearly physical, and the numbers didn’t look promising! Her blood pressure rising… check. High cholesterol… check. Endocrine values askew… check. Nancy talking to her doctor about her low-energy, achy-joint, bad moods, migraine-suffering state of life… check, check,…Continue
