The Karate Kid Check-In Part 2

Early bird gets the worm…

I don’t know what it is about this gym, but I really like it there.  The lady who seems to be in charge was there alone when we arrived early for class and I talked to her about Martial Arts a little since we had time.

With that time I immediately asked some…

Why I Hope My Daughter Experiences Playing on a TEAM

I spent my entire childhood surrounded by impressive young women. I spent long bus rides with them. Laughed with them, ran with them, and cried with them. This week the gym I grew up playing in got torn down. Well, the whole school is getting torn down, but I could really care less about that. I mean, I'm happy the kids of that town are getting a new school. It was falling apart when I was there 10 years ago, definitely necessary. Yet, something about that filthy old gym getting torn down…

Thank you, Daddy

Every since I was a little girl you have been my go to guy.  I don't know how many times I've even compared my husband to the man that you are.  Knowing that ever since I can remember you've set the bar far beyond reach even though my husband comes pretty darn close.

Every February 14th, you didn't forget me.  You love my mother more than your own…

Talking to your Daughter about Puberty and Periods

As a grade six learner, my daughter learned about puberty in her Life-Skills class.  What it said was that puberty is a time when the body changes from child- to adult-form.  It also said that during this time, adolescents could get depressed or feel emotional, especially if they do not know what to…

10 Things I Want My Daughters to Know about Dressing Themselves

At preschool drop-off another mom pointed out,"Your daughter's socks don't match."

I turned my palms upward in a je ne sais pas and wrinkled my nose, "Rough morning. Can’t win ’em all.” 

My then four-year-old was Little Miss Mismatched. She loved Disney princess dresses paired with rain boots and purple flowered leggings with her green and gold Packer t-shirt.

That morning, I picked my…

What To Expect When You're Expecting Something Completely Different

When I found out I was having a boy, I cried. Not beautiful, happy tears, no. I cried ugly, horrendous tears of mourning. I cried because I was not having a girl. That's right: my baby hadn't even left my uterus, and I was already the worst mother in the world.

Before you can comment on…

5 Reasons To Have a Tea Party

5 Reasons to Have a Tea Party With Your Daughter

My daughter loooves tea parties! She'll have tea parties with all the animals in her room, including any of her brother's toys that may have somehow gotten mixed in. Illy will throw parties for her brothers or bring me little cups of "tea" and "soup" (lukewarm water) while I'm working. She's even gotten the whole family to sit on the floor in the living room for a tea…

The Rewards of Parenting.

Ever since March 30, 2013 at 12:56pm, our world completely changed. Ella, our first child, had entered the world and has been our little firecracker ever since. I remember having such a hard time in those first few weeks home from the hospital. One of the recurring questions in my mind, and often whispered out loud to myself was, "what the hell did I get myself into, how am I gonna do this??" I thought I was prepared. I truly believed that besides the typical sleepless nights that came with…

Why this mommy needs her daddy

One of the greatest gifts my parents ever gave me was a divorce. Don't get me wrong; I honor, respect and believe in the sanctity of marriage. But my parents' relationship was not working out for them and had the potential to taint my relationship with my Dad. My parents divorced in 1983. I was just two years…

The day I met my second daughter

DECEMBER 2012

I spent the whole month of December praying that Baby S would be late. I was dreading the newborn stage. Plus, we did not know her name at this point (I wanted Scarlet, Eric wanted Fiona, neither of us liked each other's favorite name [I did not want my daughter's name to invoke the image of Shrek!! Like anyone would really think of stunning Fiona from…

My Heart Of Stone

I'll freely admit to you, right up front, that I believe in fairy tales. Sort of. What I mean is...I believe that two people in love can live happily ever after. I believe in the power of things unseen. I believe there is more to this world than just what we can pick up with our five senses. I believe in miracles. I have no choice in the matter. I have seen miracles, I have heard of…

It's Not Your Mama's Fault Part 2

Okay, so where were we? Oh, that's right...I left off right at the point where I was officially 'emancipated' at the age of 16. Whew. Heavy.

Guilt -- It's A Bitch Alright

 

Kids sure have a way of (figuratively) punching you right in the gut when you least expect it, don't they?  Their unassuming words can wash a blanket of guilt right over you in nothing flat.  And before you know it, you're feeling like the suckiest parent in the world and saving your pennies for the future therapy that your kid will inevitably need thanks to…

The difference between 9 and 10

My daughter turned 9 last week. This is the child who lives and breathes all things pink and all things Barbie.

 

As I decorated the house for her upcoming birthday party, she came up to me and announced that she had something very important to tell me. I stopped taping pink and purple balloons to the fireplace and sat down to listen to her. I looked into the serious brown eyes of my daughter as she announced that this would be her last single digit birthday. Single digit? Who…

The Princess Movement

When I had my first daughter, I vowed to never ever subscribe to the ever popular princess movement!  I have been against it through and through.  The whole princess thing has been a pet peeve of mine. It brings to mind images of obnoxious, entitled, spoiled little girls.



I have to tell you though that I… Continue
