As a parent, I'm trying REALLY hard to hold onto the whole believing in the Tooth Fairy thing for as long as is humanly possible. So when a kid's tooth falls out in this house? Well, I wanna be on top of that shit like white on rice. Unfortunately, however, I'm not always totally prepared for the curve balls that motherhood sometimes throws my…Continue

The very first time I went to Singapore with my girl was in March 2011. We took a VIP coach bus at 10pm and reached Golden Mile, Singapore at 5.30am. Never had we experienced such a tiring and exhausting night before, catching only a few winks on and off only.
The bus stopped three times for the passengers to answer some "nature calls" and we finally reached the immigration around 4.30am. Imagine how sleepy our looks were when we were at the checkpoint! :) Thank…

I normally do these "reflective" kind of posts on Fridays, but I was just too swept up in Paradise last week to sit down and really use my brain for anything productive. But now that I've been sucker-punched by reality once again, I decided to look back on the finer things I discovered on our family vacation....
** Every day should end in a…Continue

We all know about the importance of play for the emotional growth and development of children. It can enhance their imagination, increase social skills and boost self-confidence. So why don't we place more value on play for ourselves? According to a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, ½ of American women don’t have enough time to spend on themselves and the activities they enjoy.
Early on, girls tend to be collaborative, communicative and caring – you can see it…Continue

I've had an epiphany. A pretty huge one. I've had that moment where you realize you absolutely love what you do, but then realize you've fallen in love with (what might be) the wrong thing.
It is amazing…

My kids are driving me absolutely CUCKOO-KACHOO with all the friggin' apps they continue to want for the iPhone. Every day it's something new. My damn phone now has over 8,764 different games on it! WTF?! Ok, so maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but I seriously can't find any of the things that I need on it anymore cause it's so overcrowded with kid…Continue

You'd think past experience would've taught me not to trust my husband to cut my son's hair. However, I must've had a momentary lapse in judgment over the weekend, for I allowed him to get the old clippers out once again. Call me kooky, but I guess I figured it couldn't be THAT hard to screw up a buzz cut, could it? (Ok, stop giggling,…Continue

This story takes place a couple of years ago when Jake was in 3rd grade and ranks a magnitude 10 on the Richtor scale of embarrassment. This was when I was working again full time and less hopeless (I joke). Anyway, Craig and I usually spent our weekends…
Bedtime with my twinks continues to reach an all-time low around here. Every flippin' night I threaten to sell 'em off in a 2-for-1 special at a garage sale. Cause seriously, why did I have to be the one to give birth to the sleepless wonder twins? I say it's high time I open up a can of 'Serious As A Heart Attack' and take back my nightly mother effin' me-time. So, here's the equation that I hereby propose:…
