Whether it’s a cosy hot tub, a full-sized pool or something in between, having a private place to take a dip at home is one of life’s greatest luxuries. There is little that compares to shrugging off the day’s troubles with a few relaxing laps or a good book and the gentle massage of…

Surviving The First Year With Twins

Some things are better in pairs. Socks, earrings, puppies. Babies may not be on the top of that list, but in my mind it should be.

My girls just celebrated their 365th day of life. I say that because, technically, their birthday won't come for another three years (yes, they are identical twins, born on a leap year). A year ago I was begging my doctor to push my delivery just one more day, a year ago I…

Lessons from Shadow: My Life Lessons for Boys and Girls by Shadow Bregman

What a wonderful book for children. Not only is it cleverly written by a worldly black Labrador called Shadow, of course kindly penned by his human daddy Walter Bregman, but it contains some important life lessons for children to learn, and other dogs of course as long as…

The thing about girls and math...

When I was in fifth grade, I missed a few days of school due to sickness and when I came back, I had some trouble getting up to speed on fractions. They were hard and awful and I cried at school one day because I thought that I would never understand them. And I am pretty sure that in that moment, I decided I wasn't good at math.…

Getting rid of the term "tomboy"

My Mother put me in a dress almost every single day. (And looking back over family photos, a large number of them were plaid...) My room was done in a very flowery Laura Ashley pattern (wait - weren't all Laura Ashley patterns flowery?) and my favorite color was pink. I had lots of My Little Ponies and baby dolls and Barbies. I was sometimes referred to as a girlie-girl.…

Celebrating My Growing Tween

These past few years have been so fueled by angst, change and growing pains; that I haven’t embraced this age for the beauty that it is. I’ve spent more time mourning the loss of the little-ness that is slowly disappearing than celebrating my growing tween. In just over a month she turns 10, she hits double digits. It doesn’t sound that old, I know. But trust me, it’s significant. The battles have begun over stealing my shoes, wearing lip gloss to school and shaving legs . . . the list goes…

WTH, ABC Family??!!

My kids have always LOVED commercials.  Maybe it's because their dad works in advertising, or maybe it's because, unlike me, they never ever get tired of hearing the "Flipeez" theme song that seems to play on repeat between shows.  Whatever the case, when an ad pops up on the screen, my twins are completely riveted.  So when a totally inappropriate commercial was shown during a KID movie on…

Trying to Keep My "Cool"

keep-calm-and-never-grow-up-102

I swear it wasn't that long ago that my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING with me.  But lately, I'm starting to realize that maybe I'm not quite as cool as I once thought I was.  (*What the hell?!!*)  Fifth grade is bringing on a whole new desire for independence, and friends are…

Women are smart: We need more of them as scientists

I'm getting my niece a chemistry set. 

Well, not now. She's still little. But when she is old enough, I plan on getting her a chemistry set and then help her create small explosions. (I have a feeling we'll be doing this at my house and not at my brother's.)

Eavesdropping: One of the Few Benefits of Driving Carpool

When I'm driving around a carpool of screaming ten-year-old girls, it's sometimes hard not to wanna drive the car straight into Lake Michigan.  Seriously, these girls are capable of some severe damage to one's hearing (not to mention one's sanity).  However, one of the benefits of driving them around is that I get to…

Running in Circles…One 5K at a Time

Ah….the year is finally winding down, yet, I am still running in circles. Camp forms need to be completed, sneakers need to be replaced, closets need expunging, duffle bags require fumigating.   I’m a one woman show.  I amass the camp clothes, label, wash all the pool towels on a regular basis and I wonder sometimes, do my kids actually know how much behind the scenes preparation it takes just so they can have fun? The answer is a…

No Justice When It Comes to Tween Body Image

No Justice When It Comes to Tween Body Image

Like most 10-year-old girls, my daughter loves to shop at Justice. So I was flipping through the latest Justice catalog that came in the mail, and I noticed a disturbing trend. Before I point out the obvious, see if you can see what's wrong with the following…

Choices Moms Make

When I was a little girl, the majority of my friends did not come home to an empty house like I did.  They knew that their moms were waiting for them with a hug, a smile and some cookies and milk.  Their moms were there to make sure they changed out of their “school clothes” so that they could go outside and play.  And once their dads came home from work, they knew it was time to “wash up for supper” and join the family at the dining room table.  I’ll admit it; as a little girl, I…
