Now here's the party of all parties! Talk about economical, creative, interactive and downright fun ... this birthday party idea will be the hit of the neighborhood for children ages 3 - 8. The joy just won't be in designing their own cardboard car, but whatever movie you select and snack you…Continue
Miss K’s 2nd birthday is right around the corner (which I am finding hard to believe!) and I have been asked by at least 10 different people what kind of party we will be throwing her, are we hiring a place, getting in entertainers, having a bouncy house – I feel like I am surrounded by looks of horror when I say no, we are just going for a nice day out to the children’s museum – JUST THE FOUR OF US. She is going to be 2 not 16, she isn’t even going to know its her birthday!…Continue

I nursed both of my boys for a year each. Now I have weaned my sweet Baby B and its a little bittersweet.
At around 10 months of age, I decided to slowly over the two month span work toward using a bottle regularly. I thought it was because of B's extreme love of nursing and cuddling, that was the reason I couldn't sleep at night anymore. Some people sleep really well with their little ones and co-sleeping is a magical bonding time. For me it meant lying awake the whole night counting…Continue

It's hard to believe that I'll be 35 tomorrow. When I was a kid—and even in my early twenties—35 sounded ridiculously "grown up," and 40 seemed positively ancient. Yet here I am, feeling perfectly fine about the milestone.
I probably wouldn't be making much of…

** Half days of school are only awesome if you're a kid or a teacher. Or bat shit crazy.
** Birthdays are chock-full of calories.
** Sometimes it's better to pretend like you don't know your family.
** The front of my car is attracted to jackasses who don't drive the speed limit.
** Nothing says I love you quite…Continue

If you are like me, you keep a drawer or file folder full of cards for every occasion – because you never know when you will need a good card at the last minute. The last time I went through my cards, I realized that there were some that I no longer found funny, appropriate or even nice looking and really wondered why I bought them in the first place (see the not-so-pretty evidence at right).
I gave a bunch to my daughters to use for their art projects and realized…Continue

...When people told me to enjoy the moments of her childhood because they grow up too fast, I rolled my eyes. As I first struggled as a single mother, then with her diagnosis of her reactive attachment disorder, there were many times her childhood couldn’t end fast enough.

On March 5th, 1971 I was born. Yep, I just turned 40. All year I was talking about the big birthday bash we were going to have at our house – it was going to be quite the event! But the closer my birthday got, the more the idea of throwing a party became one big headache. So I started saying that I would have a party when the weather improved. When friends and family asked, I…Continue

Yes, you read that correctly! (*blush*) I admit, I was a little taken aback when The Dirty Mommy Club first asked me to take part in a threesome. Wait, what?? Dirty Mommy Club?? Threesome?? Ummmmm…it all sounds awfully risqué for someone in my, very public, position of power. Though I have to give mad props for her sheer brilliance, because…Continue
