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.

When someone says the words "food allergy", what comes to mind?

Hives, swelling, epi pens, asthma...

Did any of those pop into your…

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…

Why you should let your kids snack

I am a big believer in snacking.  It all started when I was pregnant with my little girl I've continued to keep up that eating style and found it really works for both of my kiddos.  Less mood swings and tantrums equals a happier family overall and it helps me get them to eat more food groups over the course of the day.

But I know that not everyone is as mad about snacking as I am.  Some people think that it takes away from eating balanced meals and adds a lot of uncounted calories to… Continue

Grandchildren, BINGO and Alzheimer's Disease

I think that one of the saddest things about Alzheimer's disease is the fact that it often robs children of their grandma or grandpa. Children are very astute. They know that grandma or grandpa is there "physically", but they can usually sense that they are not fully "present".

Little ones might be frightened. Tweens might get very quiet, and teens? They might just get angry. So how…

High Fives To My Husband


Unlike the back-assward days of the 1950s, I, for one, do not always believe that Father knows best.  However, as much as it might pain me, I've gotta give credit where credit is due.  And sometimes, every once in a blue moon, my husband actually comes up with a semi-brilliant parenting strategy.


Like many households, getting our kids ready for bed at night…

Vent, Rant, a Little Bit of Whine

It's almost the end of the summer...and what awesome adventures have we gone on? None. Why? Well I can't get ANYTHING done. Nothing. EVER. Half way into any chore I get sidetracked by kid A fighting kid B or kid C taking kid A's toys. Then I give up and we don't get to go have fun. And this happens every. single. day.

Ugh. I'm in such a rut and today started off worse than normal. Usually I wake up earlier than everyone because I need time to wake up or I'm a monster, and it's the only…

Maria's Random Rants - What The !@#$%^& Is Going On Here?

I’m a warrior, a road warrior. Well, among other things. Really. Just hear me out.

Being a family of six limits our options when it comes to travel. Heck, being a family of six limits us financially in several respects, because as you can guess six times any dollar amount usually equals much more than most people can afford.


Hence, over the last few years this family has become a band of road warriors, trekking it across…
