A Letter to My Child's Pediatrician

Dear Pediatrician,



I wanted to say, first and foremost, thank you for taking care of my son's medical needs for his entire life. I did not attend medical school, and I'm really queasy when it comes to giving shots--*insert any and all ironic jokes here about the tattoo artist who hates needles*--so I'm…

Family Tradition: Comcast Holiday Light Show

comcastxmas-cover

Part of our Christmas Holiday traditions includes attending the light shows offered all over the city, both commercial and neighborhood run. There are few things more spectacular during the holiday season than elaborately decorated displays with beautifully strung lights, rich deep reds and greens, and the smell of pine emanating from fresh cut Christmas trees. And in addition to the highly publicized, world famous Wanamaker Light Show (now Macy's), which I will be discussing…

The Timeline of a Typical California Divorce

Why We Started Celebrating St. Nicholas Day

Last year our family added a new tradition to our Christmas celebrations, the observance of St. Nicholas Day.

If you’ve never heard of St. Nicholas Day, don’t worry. Neither had I until my sister-in-law shared about it a few years ago, and it wasn’t until last November…

'Me Time' VS 'Time w/Me': How Blogging Has Affected My Parenting

I blog about motherhood. But sometimes, my blog makes me a bad mother.

These observations came to me slowly over the course of several weeks. I've only been blogging for six months now, but my competitive drive to inflict my writing on the eyes of others, to showcase every funny story or present informative product review videos, sometimes clouds my ability to 'mom' appropriately.…

The problems of a picky eater

At one point of my childhood, I stopped eating meat. It was a phase and didn't last too long, and my Mother just dealt with it by giving me lots of veggies. (Sorry, Mom!) When she tells this story today, she remarks that it was good timing because my brother was going through a phase of not eating vegetables and everything evened out.…

Family Traditions: Thanksgiving Parade



For many the beginning of the Holiday season begins on Thanksgiving Day, however, for us, it *officially* begins on Thanksgiving parade day...no, not the big New York parade or even the Thanksgiving Day parade here in Philly. Every year we take Eamon to get his first glimpse of Santa Claus at the Mayfair Thanksgiving Parade in northeast Philadelphia. There are dancers, Irish bands, the all-important Mummers appearances, and, of course, Santa. It's a simple parade full of…

Over the last few months, I have had several different people ask me if I’m a photographer, as in a “professional photographer.”

That’s rather flattering because, no, I’m not. I’m a mom with a nice camera who loves to take pictures of her children, and while I have been really…

Being Married to a Cheerleader

As a little girl, I was a talker, a mover, and a wiggler who was constantly dancing and singing and usually loud. Since my parents couldn’t afford dance classes for me, they put me in cheerleading to help me use up some of my energy.

I cheered for six years of my childhood, up…
