5 Ways Be a Better Parent If You Are Suffering with Chronic Pain

Mom Explaining to Chronic Pain to Her Children Last fall we decided to take my youngest son out of daycare so that he could stay at home with me during the day.  At first I was nervous because I wasn’t sure how I was going to care for him during the day.  I am thankful that he has started learning how to play independently and can entertain himself for a few minutes.  During those first several weeks, I was so excited and wanted to continue teaching him the things that he was currently learning in daycare.  Things changed…

What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Anyway?

You can find serenity in learning that even if you do have a problem, there is always a solution. When a person experiences a serious, traumatic event, she should be prepared to have many people tell her that she that  she will suffer from post traumatic stress syndrome.  When two of my children and I were struck by a hit and run truck driver recently my husband joined the chorus of people telling me to watch out and that I was suffering from PTSD aka post traumatic stress disorder. I am a…

Finding out that you are expecting is the most exciting news that a mother to be will ever get, aside from getting married.  After getting a positive pregnancy test, most women call the doctors office immediately to get prenatal care so that they can determine how far along that they are.  Once you have a…

How Do Women Even Shower When They Have 6 Kids???

I was at the pool this weekend and started talking to a woman holding an infant next to me.  She asked me if he was my first and I told her how he was actually my second.  I asked her the same.  She replied, “Oh no, he’s my sixth.”  I couldn’t hide the shock in my face.  Six kids?  Six???  She didn’t look like a character from a TLC show -  she looked like a woman my age. She had a great haircut, cute bathing suit, and didn’t look frazzled in the least.  How was that possible?  How could she…

Fear and Beyond

Last week I called the instructor at the local Ropes Course. We were set to attend with our homeschool group in a few days, and I realized that although it may be interesting to watch the older kids climb, zip and whirl, it'd be more fun if my two oldest could participate fully.



The answer I got: The harnesses can be fit on very young children. It's more about their personal will and interest.



So, we woke early a few days later, tossed our picnic in the car, and drove as…

Meltdown in Aisle 5: Top 6 Tips For Keeping Your Kids Calm at the Supermarket

It's an inevitability that every parent has to experience. A rite of passage, the "supermarket shakedown" is one that indeed shakes your maternal/paternal resolve to the core. This unique meltdown of sorts is atypical in that it is usually precipitated by the perpetrator's viewing of candy-coated confections, promptly followed by an unequivocal "No!" http://bit.ly/pp9UhB

Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better....

Perhaps it started way back when in the prehistoric annals of domesticity, the 1950's. If one went by the media and popular accounts of daily life that were portrayed at the time, women wanted to do nothing more than to keep a beautiful home and cook a wonderful meal. The name of the game was perfection and the holy grail was a sparkling kitchen floor and a husband's shirt that was devoid of the feared "ring around the collar." Apparently women enjoyed just being able to please their husbands… Continue

The Power of Hate



Those who divorce often experience hateful feelings towards their ex at some point, especially if their partners cheated. Obsessing about what happened as it all unraveled, replaying the disappointments, wounding and shocking betrayals–all leading to horrendous feelings of loss and loneliness. They…

Acts of Civil Disobedience

My twin boys Aubrey and Erik regularly commit Acts of Civil Disobedience.

No, they are not civil rights crusaders, nor are they proponents of Mohandas Ghandi. They have no idea who he is.

Today's world can be a terrifying place

I had a nightmare Saturday night - jumbled, disjointed, frightening scenes. It started with our family going to a store's grand opening. It ended with me being trapped inside, watching a plane crash-land in the parking lot and skid into the building as panic and chaos erupted all around me.

I couldn't find my husband; I couldn't find my children.

In the dream, I think I was in a Wal-mart, but I might as well have been in a Safeway, because I'm sure the murderous rampage in…

My Home Is Now An Empty Nest

I now have an empty nest.



Last week I took my youngest child to college and helped set up her dorm room. It was an exhausting and hectic experience but a very productive day, to say the least.



My son is a senior at the same university. He moved back into his apartment on the same day that we moved his sister into her dorm room.



I came home to a completely empty house. For the first time in my adult life, my home is empty. My children are "grown."



I am happy… Continue

Positve Thinking And What It Can Do For You

I used to be a positive thinker! I didn't know to be negative, really. That was a couple decades ago, though.

Then, along came adulthood.

With adulthood came marriage.

My marriage was not the best marriage. It could have been and should have been a great marriage. But, for some reason, the sweet man I married turned into someone not so sweet.

With my husband's put-downs and all the ugliness of our marriage, I began to think…

A Day in my shoes

I am wearing a pair of shoes.

They are ugly shoes.

Uncomfortable shoes.

I hate my shoes.

Each time I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.

Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.

Yet, I continue to wear them.

I get funny looks wearing these shoes.

I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not

theirs.

They never talk about my shoes.

To learn how awful my shoes are… Continue

My Mom Logic (or Not): My Entry into the Mother of All Bloggers Contest

When I found out I was officially nominated for The Mother of All Bloggers contest I was so happy and then kind of mortified because in order to win, I have to tell you all what my "Mom Logic" is. My response to that is "Um, what?" I know there are tons of books, websites, and even blogs devoted to this unexpected and un-perfected art that tout secrets and formulas for getting to be "the best mommy ever" down to a science. But seriously...since when is motherhood really that… Continue
