I'd always thought that Mother Nature and I kind of had a connection -- you know with the whole "mother" thing and all. But I'm really starting to think that she's falsely assumed her title because no mama in her right mind would make it so damn cold outside that kids are off school and trapped indoors for days on…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who attempts to find the balance between my child becoming a world-class liar and not stifling his imagination when he is sharing his latest exaggerated tale. Don’t misunderstand me, I have very little patience for the, “I didn’t do that,” type of fibs when I clearly saw Sonny Boy squeeze toothpaste all over the bathroom counter, I am speaking more of the, “John’s dad came to school juggling chainsaws, he dropped one on his foot and cut off his…

I absolutely LOVE football! I really do. You may have read my article 5 Things Fantasy Football Taught Me About LIFE, which really gives you an idea of where my love for this sport came from and why I am excited for THE BIG GAME on Sunday!
Peyton Manning was my Quarter Back for Fantasy Football, so Super Bowl XLVIII is pretty exciting for me! It is kind of funny how he became my QB actually. Last year I was pregnant and we were trying to think of a name for our little girl that would…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who is amazed at their child's lack of ability to just simply get out the door in a timely fashion. Our school mornings have been hectic whirlwinds of velcro shoes, backpacks, and impromptu bicycle riding in the garage, adding up to a rushed and stressed out Mama that wants to throw in the towel. Just recently though, I've noticed that it seems like we might have finally ironed out the morning wrinkles, and have been arriving at school ON TIME.

Unfortunately, we hear on the news all the time about parents full-out losing their shit on the sidelines of their kids' sporting events. A bad call can somehow turn supposed "adults" into the biggest meatheads on the planet. It's both despicable and embarrassing. And I thought I'd seen some pretty horrific behavior…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who finds them self disenchanted with their experience as a newbie Mama to public elementary school. I have a variety of different reasons for my less than enthused feelings, one is the fact that the principle has already called me at work, got me really worried, and then dismissed the whole point of the call as "nothing really," and now I can add the first report card to my kindergarten dismay.
The impression I am making with that…Continue

** Supervising a chain gang would be more enjoyable than supervising homework.
** The world needs a whole lot more Tina Fey & Amy Poehler.
One of the hardest things about child care is keeping your cool, especially when your child is on the floor having a screaming fit. Of course these are the things that try a parent’s patience the most but there are also 5 things that can do to help you keep the situation from progressing. …
I cannot be the only one…who has noticed that some Mamas thrive on schooling you on what is good parenting. There are those Moms who I think are just waiting for a good moment to drop some superior mothering wisdom on you and the others who are all about passing parenting judgment, either way this schooling happens to me quite often.
I narrowed down the…Continue

Coming back from a family vacation is never a fun thing. The packing, the travel, the crabby kids -- they all add up to one giant pain in the ass. It pretty much makes you forget that you were even on vacation at all. But this recent sucker punch back to reality after our New Year's trip to…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who used to be able to handle the workings of an entire company, chat on the phone with her best girlfriend about the insane sale they got on their latest pair of killer pumps, and paint their nails all at the same time, and not miss a beat. Only to jump ahead five years and not only not own any pumps that have been purchased in the last two years, but can’t even remember why they are standing in front of the open silverware drawer staring at it’s…

I cannot be the only one...who is ready for their little one to head back into the halls of knowledge (or at least of crayons and construction paper). Today, though I am thankful that the Southern California weather permitted us to take to the streets and walk our little hearts out...please visit me at I Cannot be the Only One...for the rest of my Thankful Thursday.…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who wonders about the amount of influence the people who spend time with my child will have on the type of person he will become as he grows. Are our children simply mimicking the uncle who tells inappropriate jokes at the dinner table and groaning like daddy when asked to take out the trash, or are our little angels picking up all of our good and (mostly) bad behaviors along their way?…

Those pleasantries that we all learn as we get older. Those short pat answers and replies that flow off of our tongues. Right about now you may be wondering what I am talking about and are about to move on to the next post but I ask you to continue reading, you will see yourself soon or maybe you won’t.

I cannot be the only one…who feels like they have been wrapping (and unwrapping…pun intended) this past week up for days now. A holiday in the middle of the week, mixed with cookies and cocktails, can throw a Mama off her game. I have offered reflections of this Christmas, our attempt to find the perfect balance in the right…

I cannot be the only one…who is more than a little relieved that all the salutations of seasons greetings have been said, all the festive meals have been eaten, and all the wrappings have been unwrapped for this years Christmas. Now that the season has been said and done it is time for us to review, recap, and recite some of the holiday happenings.
First, allow me to start with the gifts not purchased from the multitude…
