Addicted to Playdates

Is there a playdate addiction group somewhere?  If so, then I'm totally sending these kids of mine.  I'm tellin' you, these two short people are beyond obsessed with playdates all day, every day.  Now some days, that can be a good thing (like when the playdate's at someone else's house, for example), but there are other days when I wanna kick the inventor of the playdate right…

Dirty Laundry

Ok, I just need to get some things off of my chest here.  This is family drama.

My cousin A and I are only 9 months apart.  Her mom and mine share a birthDAY although they are two years apart themselves.  Out of my mom and her 4 siblings, I think that she and A’s mom have the closest relationship.  We also have that close…

What If I Threw The Tantrum For A Change?

I don't know about you, but sometimes, I can't help but laugh my buns off when my kids are throwing an all-out fit.  They just look so incredibly ridiculous to me as they're wailing and screaming and flailing themselves about the floor.  In fact, I've even videotaped one of my daughter's tantrums to show her just what an asshole looks like in action.  Of course, she doesn't find it…

A Happy Heart

 

You know how every once in a while, you have one of those parenting moments which you wish you could just freeze-frame forever?  They can be few and far between, but that's probably what makes 'em so darn special.  Well, I was lucky enough to have one of those "this is what it's all about" memories this past weekend.

 

The setting was my son's…

Let Us Not Forget About Them (I am excited, my post was published on http://www.swirlinc.org/

Large clouds of smoke were darkening the sky and screams of pain, fear and helplessness were deafening the big apple. It was chaos:  Nobody knew what was happening. A cold intense fear spread across the city and on the faces of the people when they realized they were under attack; terrorists had infiltrated the country.  That heartbreaking tragedy had awakened the world on September 11, 2001.

 

Today, I am watching the program, “9/11: Ten Years Later” with my baby.  I can’t…

Birthdays, Target, UPS and Lessons Learned

My middle child turns 22 today. It is the first birthday I have ever missed and I am feeling kind of low.



Like most 22 year olds who are living on their own for the first time, all she wants is a gift card to Target so she can buy food and curtains.



So on Monday, I went online and ordered her the gift card and a few extra little things. I paid extra for… Continue

Sari and Her Ray of Sunshine

There are certain people you come across in life who just always make you smile.  They are able to see the glass as half full and bring positivity wherever they go -- kinda like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day.  You can't help but to admire and respect these people cause they make you want to be a better person yourself.

 

My friend, Sari, is one of these amazing people.  I am in constant awe of her optimism, courage and strength.  She somehow juggles three kids,…

Suburban Roller Coaster

 

As overly cautious as we are about protecting our children these days, it's a wonder any of us survived our own childhoods of yesteryear.  Heck, many of us probably rode home from the hospital on our moms' laps IN THE FRONT SEAT OF THE CAR (without a seat belt, no doubt)!!  All this fragility makes me wonder if our kids are missing out on some of the good…
