My little brother was born today. He woke Mom up at three o’clock in the morning because he wanted to come out of her tummy. I was asleep so I didn’t know he was going to be born today. When I woke up, Grandma said, “Good morning,” and told me I was a big brother today. She made my favorite breakfast, yummy waffles with syrup and chocolate milk. How did she know that was my…Continue

A week ago, I was watching the “Sex and the City” episode “An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux)”. The scene where Steve takes his mother to the ER and discovers she unknowingly suffered a stroke that caused her to have significant memory loss, made me think of my paternal grandmother and grandfather.
Along with the millions of others who have stumbled upon my blog you may be scratching your head and asking, “What’s with the name, Diane? Why is this thing called ‘It’s All Good – Until You Burn Dinner?’”…Continue

These days, we know how special it is to receive a real note card in the mail. Like with a stamp on it. Handwritten and all… It’s even more special if it’s also addressed by hand… And how about if it was personalized with a photo stamp to identify to sender? Even more charming.Continue

Once again one of my very favorite holidays has passed me by faster than I could say, "Boo!" Yes, Halloween has come and gone and left me with a massive candy overdose. I seriously don't think I'll be able to look at a Twix bar the same without puking ever again (at least not until next week anyway). The festive weekend was certainly chalked full of all kinds of fun while it lasted though.
It all started with our annual adults-only costume party, which…Continue

** Little girls and drama go together like hookers and high heels.
** It's called a "hot" glue gun for a reason. Ouch!

A big question always churns up my mind. Why are the kids today so so very out of control. I wonder who's the real culprit !!! Is it the culture and the atmosphere there are growing in or am I showing signs of withdrawal with age?
My profession says I ought to have a good hold over kids, but its the other way round, they are more rebellious, indifferent and undisciplined, and its bothering me a lot. Why cant there be peace on both sides?
Its overwhelming the…Continue

Sometimes as adults we get caught up in the busyness of everyday living and children can take this very personally. We may notice that suddenly, there are behaviors that we can't explain. Sometimes 'bad behavior' is merely a way for children to tell us they need some quality time with us.
Here are some…Continue

** If you think they might spill it, they absolutely, most definitely will spill it.
** My blood is a molotov cocktail of Allegra, Singulair and Advil.
** It may feel like lice, but sometimes, it's just dry scalp.

I remember growing up we would say “sticks and stones can break my bones but worlds will never hurt me”; well we all know that is not true – words do hurt and in some cases they can kill. Given the recent cases of bullying, I feel that we as parents need to educate our kids as best we can about the dangers of bullying. See…Continue

It's kinda hard to believe, but the Nucking Futs clan has never ever had a professional family photo taken. Sure, we've had the kids photographed out the yin yang but never with my husband and me. So this past weekend, we decided to take advantage of the unbelievably gorgeous fall weather and round up our crew for a picture at the beach.
