The Tacky Box Can Help Parents Take Charge of A Potty Mouth or Stop Kids Saying Hurtful Things

Have you ever slipped and said a tacky word in front of your child?  I know that I am guilty of this of accidentally saying something I will regret later or said something that wasn't appropriate for my children to hear.  I have always tried to be aware and watch what I say and do in front of them.  I want to make sure that my kids aren't picking up bad habits.  Believe it or…

Social Media Common Sense for Bloggers

As many know, I made a personal commitment to dig back into my personal blog in 2012 and I’m  proud to say that, in my opinion, I’ve done a great job.

What many of you may not know is that in my 9-5 life, I own a company thatspecializes in digital and social media marketing. Sometimes it’s…

Teaching Kids About Differences Using Eggs

I thought today was a fitting day to tell the story about one of my favorite school events. When Mackenzie was in the 2nd grade, her school held an event to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. They used  this event to show the kids that no matter how different we may be on the outside, on the inside we’re all the same.

That in itself is very nice, but…

Teens, Tweens and Finances

We forewarned our girls that this Christmas was not going to be a big one.  The Rooster had changed jobs halfway thru the year and my business was slower than last year. Even if that hadn’t been the case, when we saw the 13 YOs “list” it made us do a double take and realized that these kids needed a severe reality check. I’ve made the comment many times that there is NOT an M.D. behind my name. Sorry for the harsh truth kids, but we are not rolling in the dough.

We “gently” advised…

Kids Who Sell Stuff… And People Who Don’t Buy

I have 3 kids which means in our time and like everyone else, we’ve sold a lot of crap. We’ve sold cookie dough, pizza making kits, wrapping paper, God awful things they considered “gifts”, magazine subscriptions and of course, Girl Scout cookies.  We are VERY lucky that the elementary school we’re at now doesn’t participate in item sales – they just ask us for pledges and donations at the beginning of the year. And then nickel and dime us the rest of the year, but that’s a different…

Sunscreen Absolutely Necessary

School is out and all of my kids (nieces and nephew) came to visit. It is my job as an aunt to keep everyone entertained. From 5 years old to 11 years old, what a mess! Since they come and all want to do a collection of things I have decided to set up stations at the house. Of course, swimming, the doll section, the Wii, two TV zones, my nephew refuses to watch anything that has to do with dancing princesses, etc. They move around in the different areas, but the whole house becomes a disaster.… Continue

Another Mom Hat: High School Choice Researcher

We've come to that moment of parenthood that came much too quickly for my preference, but nevertheless, it's here. We are now looking into high schools for my first-born. I've always been a private-school, Catholic school kid & parent so now we're transitioning to the public school system. I've decided to go out of my comfort zone because we're fortunate to belong to an awesome school district with great high school pathway options. I've done some outside research & now it's a matter…

Motherhood is a Learning Journey


...This week has been a true test of my sheer will and strength as a mother--sending my 13-year-old, my first-born off on a 5-day retreat miles away, off the grid---no contact! It's been emotional--up & down--happy for him, worried for him, excited for him then missing him. Very much missing him.  And I survived. My Huz has survived (barely) & his younger brother (very bonded to him) also survived.  We missed him SO SO much!! But we love him and want him to experience…
