6 Tips For Mothers Of Teenage Girls

Years ago when my daughter was 10, I realized that my relationship with my daughter was much smoother and easier than that of the average or typical relationship. Yes! I said easier. I have always been told, wait for it, things will change as soon as she’s a teenager.

Fast forward to age 14, the biggest challenge for myself was that she thought she was “ugly” because she has always been very tall for her age. Those feelings quickly changed after she became more involved in sports.…

The Mid-Parenting Crisis

I'm brainstorming here. I'd like this to be well thought out resonating post of parenting rationalization but the truth is that I'm sitting at my desk shocked by interactions that have taken place between myself and my teenage daughter in the past week, things that have come out of nowhere.

I know that over the past year I've come to a sort of mid-life-crisis in parenting similar to that of the 40 year old man that is mid-life minus the new Porsche and Viagra. My daughter is turning…

One For My Mother

I am not even sure what started the screaming match between my daughter and I, but all of a sudden our family dinner turned to tears and snot, grounding and a bunch of things being said – I don't know how it gets so out of control so quickly. She's so sweet and little until she decides she's grown.

I don't understand how you can clearly hatefully disrespect someone and then be like “I didn't do anything wrong” - so while we were sitting there playing the blame game it occurred to me…

Parenting Doesn't Always Feel Good...

Both my girls have their fair share of anxiety - I can be credited for passing that down to them, I guess. Neither one is worse than the other, and while their anxieties are similar, they're also pretty different and have to be handled differently.

Brooke is indecisive and has separational anxiety - she wants to spend the night with a friend, but then calls me at 10:30 not able to sleep, she invites friends over but decides later that she wishes they would leave. She wants to go to…

Dot Girl's First Period Kit

I have two little girls and I am dreading (I should say, embracing) the moment when they reach that time in their lives when they leave the innocence of childhood to enter the ever changing  (I’m talking hormones) woes of womanhood.

Ah, puberty. I remember the not-so-pleasant experience of getting my first period at school. I think that I remember wearing white…

Virtuous Lip Gloss - Positive Words for the Lips

I could certainly relate to Sara Buntrock as she talked about her tween daughter when I met her this last January at a gift show. Being a mother of a tween myself (any child between the age of 7 to 12 is considered one), I know that they start having very mature tastes at a very early age (thank you Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus and iCarly/Miranda Cosgrove).

Make-up is definitely one area that young girls love to explore. Although I do not encourage my young daughters to wear makeup, I…

LittleMissMatched Socks - Solution for the Sock Lost in the Wash

Over the holidays my family went to Downtown Disney, a street of restaurants and shops that links Disneyland, the Disneyland Resort and California Adventure Park, to have lunch. While we were walking around my daughters noticed a store, LittleMissMatched that featured vibrant socks in the window and asked if they could go in. Why not? They can always use more socks, their sock drawer being… Continue

Mommy's Make-up

When it comes to make-up I am no stranger. I’d say I exercise a reasonable restraint in resisting daily usage, but at the same time I enjoy the perfecting powers of foundation and blush on my tired mommy complexion. I never thought of my usage to be excessive or that it would have a negative influence on my daughters. But when my toddler started running up to me freshly done up with the make-up she took from her teenage Aunts room asking if she was “pwetty” I couldn’t help but wonder…. Was…

What *I* would teach at Cotillion

I returned from a conference recently and was reminded of the moment back in May where I (apparently) lost my senses and agreed to let my 12

year old attend Cotillion classes. Truth be told, I think they

were having a hard time filling the class, so they started calling down

the list. Our last name starts with "D".. we were doomed (no pun

intended).
Anyhow.. there it sat on my desk.. almost as complete as

a wedding invitation except this outfit would be a…

GirlMogul.com - Boosting Tween Girls' Self-Esteem

Andrea Stein started Girl Mogul as a t-shirt company in 2007 when she realized that today’s girls needed an alternative to diva and princess tees. The company’s popular blog has since grown to become an online community dedicated to encouraging tween girls’ (ages 9 to 12) success. The site – and the community encourages our daughters to dream big and reach for the stars.



As the parent of a now 13 year old daughter, I can tell you – from very recent experience – that the tween years… Continue

No Really, My Daughter And I Did Got Along Great During Her Teen Years



Several weeks ago a friend who is struggling to find a way to get along with her 14 year old daughter asked me how I coped with raising a teenager. I told her that my daughter and I got along great during her teen years, and actually had fun together. A look of shock mixed with disbelieve came over her face. She asked, “So what is your secret?” Having never given much thought to the subject, I decided to ask my daughter…

ADHD, Mommy Specific!

I am having a WTH is going on here day. It has come to my attention,

apparently when you have a moment..you realize a lot of not necessarily

caring to know information, that I have developed a very peculiar way

of cleaning my house. Remember the good old day when you could spend

all day cleaning out your closets?Ahh, and when it was done there was

sense of accomplishment and pride? Remember? You remember....think

hard. Now, it has…

Truthful Tuesday's 2/9/10

Good morning, my lovelies! It is once again that time of the week. The

day that we can come to our safe haven and expunge all of the wreckage

of the week from our souls! Don't be afraid, we won't bite. Just take

your load and dump it here! Happy Tuesday! I'm sure tomorrow will be

better!

So, that being said, here are my 3 (yeah its been that kind of week)

for the day; I wish so badly that my 2 year old could wipe her own

little butt. It's not that I don't like… Continue

My first commercial and all I got was this sparkly new hairpin!







My 4 year old daughter has wanted to be a "movie star" since she saw

Eloise goes to Hollywood. Not that I think she really knows what that

means or what it entails but I have convinced myself that I will never

be the shatterer of hopes and dreams when it comes to my girls. If they

want to do it or be it, I'm going… Continue

Truthful/Tell all Tuesdays

Ok, Ladies its Tuesday and ,as I said, today is the day we can all vent "anonymously" if preferred, and get everything off our minds..without judgement:)I will start the ball rolling:

Is it wrong that sometimes I wish I was brave enough to dose my kids with ibuprofin, so they would go to sleep at a reasonable hour without me having to lay down with them?

Sometimes, I really miss my life before I was married or had kids, so much so that I fantasize about who I used to be:)LOL

OK,… Continue

.5 you never stood a chance

Tonight, though I obviously have 107,000 things that I ought to be doing, I have baby on the brain. I think it was the combo of visiting my friend and her new puppy( get your panties out of the bunch , I am not comparing your little miracles to tiny hairy beasts) and all this talk recently of whose pregnant and whose not. Anyways, apparently , I am in that stage of Motherhood where I have 2 perfect daughters and I am undecided about a third. OK, lets' be honest, brutally honest. Let's just rip… Continue
