How to Make Time Out an Effective Way to Modify Your Child’s Unwanted Behaviors

My son stayed home with me again today so that he could continue to heal and so that I could make sure that he was fever free before sending him back to daycare.  He acts like he is feeling much better today and his fever finally broke last night.  Thank goodness, I don’t like it when my baby doesn’t feel…

Birthday Craziness

     L's friend R had her 5th birthday today.  Both girls were invited to the party.   Before the party took SB  out to sell her girl scout cookies.  Sold 6 boxes in an hour.   Not too good of a sales day for a Saturday.   Last house we stopped at ended up being a girl scout leader.    We were informed in polite terms that we were trespassing on another's territory.   To my way of thinking if a girl hasn't gone out and sold in her territory halfway through the cookie sale then watch out.  …

Solve Your Child’s Behavioral Problems

Every parent has a different way of parenting their children.  There is no right or wrong way; however, many parents find that they have to tailor their parenting styles depending how their children respond to our guidance.  Every child learns differently, so what may work for one family or child might not work for another.  As a parent with multiple children, you may find yourself frazzled and stressed out because what is working for one child isn’t working on another.  Read more…

How to Treat Mommy in an Emergency

It was Saturday morning, so after a long, stressful week I was looking forward to taking a run around the block. By "run" I mean "mostly walk," but I managed to break into a slow jog a couple of times along the way. (I'm not much of a runner. My theory is that my ancestors were royalty from England, so it is not in my blood to be active or athletic in any way. But I occasionally attempt some sort of physical activity in order to avoid dropping dead of a laziness-induced heart… Continue

Things That Make You Go "Hmmm"

Nothing really surprises me when it comes to my kids, but I seriously don't know what possesses them to do some of the crazy, stupid things they do.  And sometimes, it's really really hard to be the parent and not laugh at those crazy, stupid things.  (Cause let's be honest, some of them are pretty freaking hysterical!)  The latest thing that made me go hmmm?  My son decided…

The Honk Off

I swear my husband gets his jollies by trying to embarrass the crap out of me.  He's always enjoyed putting the car windows down and driving around our neighborhood with the radio blaring full blast.  And believe me, I've seen many an eye roll from our fellow neighbors whenever we go thumping by.  It makes me wanna slump down in the seat and pretend like I'm not really there, even…

Act Like An Adult, Not Like An Idiot

If you have a kid in any kind of organized sport, then you've most likely witnessed some pretty awful sportsmanship at one time or another.  It's bad enough when it's another kid displaying the rotten behavior, but when it's an adult?  Well, that's just the lowest of the low.  And this past weekend I had the misfortune of observing THE most jack asinine…

Maybe My Parents Knew What They Were Doing

Remember when you were growing up and you said you'd never ever do to your own children the things your parents did to you?  Perhaps it was a vow you made to yourself in the midst of snot and tears as you slammed the door of your room so hard that it nearly shattered the windows?  Well, my sixteen-year-old self would probably punch me in the face for doing so, but here's me admitting…

The Breakfast Buzz Kills

Do you ever wanna just walk away from your kids in public and act like you don't know who the hell they are?  No?  Surely that's not just me.  Call me Mommy Dearest if you will, but when my kids have a brain fart and act like complete Neanderthals who've never heard of manners, I sometimes think it would be easier to point and stare and pretend like I'm disgusted by the horrible excuse…

What If I Threw The Tantrum For A Change?

I don't know about you, but sometimes, I can't help but laugh my buns off when my kids are throwing an all-out fit.  They just look so incredibly ridiculous to me as they're wailing and screaming and flailing themselves about the floor.  In fact, I've even videotaped one of my daughter's tantrums to show her just what an asshole looks like in action.  Of course, she doesn't find it…

Letting it all hang out

Not literally of course, that wouldn't be pretty at my age.  I'm referring to writing honestly and not holding things back.


In my professional life I am known as a very well-respected expert in the field of cat behavior. I have written 7 books on the subject and have worked full-time in this field for 25 years. I am IAABC certified and AABP certified and enjoyed having a career where I feel confident. That's when something happened to my common sense and reasoning and…

Defiant Children and Natural Consequences

It was a snowy morning at the bus stop, and the grass was wet and icy. So I told the kids to stay out of the grass and stand on the street so their shoes wouldn't get wet. For reasons I will never understand, Miles decided to take this directive as a challenge. He looked right at me…

And, The mUm Of The Year Award Goes To!

I recently posted a video that, while I thought was hilarious, failed to attract the humor within my husband and some others, thus prompting me to question my 'mUm' ethics when it comes to laughing at Michael's accidental mishaps, such as running into walls, falling off his know that kind of thing.

And, I… Continue

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.…
