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…

Somebody's Gotta Be The Bad Cop


It's a dirty job, but, unfortunately, somebody's gotta do it.  And this weekend?  Well, I was the one who got stuck being the bad cop.  Cause short people lying straight to my face is just not something that I take too lightly.

Guilt -- It's A Bitch Alright


Kids sure have a way of (figuratively) punching you right in the gut when you least expect it, don't they?  Their unassuming words can wash a blanket of guilt right over you in nothing flat.  And before you know it, you're feeling like the suckiest parent in the world and saving your pennies for the future therapy that your kid will inevitably need thanks to…

Food Allergy vs. Food Intolerance: How to know what's what

Food allergies and food intolerances are a couple of those things that no mom really wants to know about first hand. However, knowing about food allergies and intolerances can help you avoid a great deal of headache should someone in your family have to deal with food allergy or intolerance.

Mixed Messages: When ‘White’ Doesn’t Quite Fit

Can white people call themselves ‘mixed’?  Can they see themselves as something other than white, if they appear visually white?  Sometimes, I don’t know.  All my childhood, I struggled with that label…the label of being white, but not feeling white, and not being accepted by “whites”.  To me, if feels uncomfortable to identify as white, even though I know that people see me as white, that society treats me as white.  My childhood is a confusing one and it seems a bit risky…
