About a year ago I wrote this post about how to make the most out of your school volunteer efforts. D2 wasn't enrolled in pre-school yet, so…Continue

My name doesn’t describe who I am very well. Jennifer isn’t an adjective.
If names were meant to describe who we are, mine would be: Clumsy, Awkward, ForgetfulContinue

My sister is 4 years younger than me. When we were just kids, those 4 years felt more like 40. We were, and remain to this day, total opposites. I’m reserved, she’s outgoing. I play it safe, she takes risks. I like books, she likes being active. I’m girly, she’s a tomboy. But growing up in rural Pennsylvania gave us few options for playmates. We had no choice but to get along or be alone.
Opposites or not, we could always get along long enough to play Barbies.
Our evenings and…Continue

I’m 10, have 5 siblings, an absent mother that yanked us out of our predictable home and away from my father whom I adored. However, she did not. At 28, with 6 kids, all she could understand was how she was robbed of her youth. She did not want to go to church, hang out with the other mothers, sew clothes, cook dinner, shop or clean. She wanted to march in protest lines, stand up for civil rights, hang out in the “hippy” section of Detroit and blare the Rolling Stones.…

Remember that story a few weeks ago when we lost the mother fucking Elf on the Shelf, and I was all panicked that it might be the last Christmas for believing in Santa in my household? Well, it saddens me beyond words, but I'm pretty sure the jig is up (at…Continue

…life was just about rolling in the grass and not caring if you got dirty?

As overly cautious as we are about protecting our children these days, it's a wonder any of us survived our own childhoods of yesteryear. Heck, many of us probably rode home from the hospital on our moms' laps IN THE FRONT SEAT OF THE CAR (without a seat belt, no doubt)!! All this fragility makes me wonder if our kids are missing out on some of the good…Continue

With the start of school comes the school supply list. I personally hate buying school supplies because I feel such pressure to get it right. What if I buy Hunter the wrong folders? Will I stunt her for life? What if I buy Elliott the wrong color for her zipped up Trapper Keeper? Will she be socially ostracized?

As a child in Phoenix Arizona, not one of the safest cities nowadays, I had free range over a 5 by 5 city block area. To my elementary school I walked about a half a mile down the road by myself grades 1st thru 6th. My grandmother or mother walked with me the first part of the school year in 1st grade, before the second half of the year I was walking it by myself. One of them would wait at the end of the yard after school to make sure they saw me, as soon as they had a glimpse of me, they'd…Continue

Two kids, two stints as a temporary stay at home mom….otherwise known as maternity leave. My second “vacation” as many ignorant people around me prefer to call my time off is coming to a close. Back to being a slave to the man next week. I have mixed emotions. I love my children. I have…

I am a child of the early ‘60’s, and everything that implies. My parents weren’t the hippy types, but more the Mad Men type of parents…without the alcohol. They loved to listen to music when I was little and on special occasions they would break out the record collection and the crème de menthe.
The coffee table in our living room was actually a record player cabinet. It was wood with two marble tiles on the surface with mesh fabric covering the speakers. The cabinet had a drawer and…Continue

I am a bit obsessive when it comes to feeding my kids. When I start looking at labels and realizing that EVERYTHING they eat has sugar, salt, and disgusting chemicals it just makes me crazy! Even so-called "healthy" foods like yogurt and granola bars are loaded with refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. It makes me want to move to a cabin in the woods and feed the kids…Continue

With the holidays approaching, everyone's spirits seem to soar. Festivities and family gatherings offer opportunities to make new friendships and re-establish old ties. Most people look forward to this season. Unfortunately, some people find the holiday depressing. Those without family or even those with family can get the blues because of circumstances. Some people just find the season stressful. What you may not realize is that one of those unhappy persons could be your…Continue
