lly and I wanted to do something special for Daddy, just to show him how much we love him. We sat down to brainstorm a couple ideas of what to do and finally settled on making a collage for Daddy. The collage would contain things that he really enjoys and something that describes him. Although our Daddy is one who likes to wrestle and roll around on the floor, he also really enjoys dressing up and looking nice!
Check out our finished picture and see how you can make one…Continue
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
