Being a mother, though the most amazing gift in the world is not always the most glamorous! It is messy! The house needs to be cleaned, meals made, laundry done, kids chauffeur, etc. There are no red carpets, no amazing award shows, and no races requiring fancy hats! Let’s just say my son’s Boy Scout Pinewood derby is the fanciest derby I will be attending this year! Haha! So why dress up? Why wear jewelry? Why not just be comfortable? Why…Continue

As mothers we are always wondering if we are present enough in our children’s lives. Lately, I have actually pondered if it’s possible to be too present???
As a stay-at-home mother (who works from home), I take my “job” very seriously and put 110% into parenting my children (and my husband). I make sure I am involved in their school and know their teachers well, drop them off and pick them up every day, know who their friends are, invest the time to tailor…Continue

Are you need some great gift ideas for your baby this Christmas? As you know babies don’t need very many toys, especially during the first four months. Once your baby turns 4 months old, he or she will need to begin spending time on their tummy to help develop their motor skills and strengthen their core muscles. Even if your child isn’t quite ready to play with the toys, babies are always interested in looking around and exploring objects around them. Playtime is also a great way…Continue

Is your child attached to a certain stuffed animal, lovey, or a blanket? Do they love to carry it around every where they go? Most toddlers go through a phase where they are attached to a a stuffed animal, lovey, or blanket. They want to take their security object with them everywhere that they go. When my son was born he was given several of those new…Continue

In June of 2011, I began using a breast pump on a regular basis to start building a stash of breast milk for my baby so that he would have plenty of milk once I returned back to work. When I returned to work, I knew exactly where I would have to use my breast pump but I never did put much thought into how I planned on cleaning my breast pump parts after I finished a pumping session. Luckily at my job, we had a break room that had a clean sink. Thankfully, I didn’t have to worry about…

It's impossible not to bump up against these articles on helicopter parents, hovering parents, attached by the boob parents, you get the idea. It seems to have turned into it's own cottage industry with celebrities; some write books like Mayim Bialik (I don't know who that is but she seems to…Continue

I feel like agents at my office are often times on similar wavelengths. This last week I had some similar conversations with a few different agents. What made the experience unusual was that the subjects were brought up to me in the course of the conversation by the other person. You know that feeling where you say, "that's so funny, I just had that same conversation with so and so." Yeah, that was me last week.
As some of the newer realtors are becoming more comfortable, me…Continue

Let me start out by saying that I'm in no way claiming to be super mom or that I have it all together because I don't.
I have however, found an idea that works for our bedtime routine. I thought it might be helpful for other parents who also struggle with the challenge of wanting to end your…Continue

Letting go seemed as though it has been a major theme in my life this year. I had to let go of my daughter. She went away to college. I had to let go of my middle son. He went away to college. And I had to let go of my eldest son who transitioned from completing college to entering the workforce. Many people ask me, “How does it feel to know that all of your children are ‘grown’ and ‘gone’. I usually respond, “It feels different!”
Learning to let go can be difficult. For me, I thought…Continue

A couple years ago, while pregnant with M, I read on a parenting forum about being trapped in a wardrobe rut, always wearing the dreaded "Mom Uniform", khakis and a button-down shirt. At the time, I chuckled and made a mental note to mix up my body coverings once baby was born. After M was born, however, I found myself in the Totally Let Myself Go Uniform - I wore the same PJs all day (and night) several days in a row, even though they stunk of spit up. I just didn't see the point in…Continue

It’s the idea of my son starting his second year of college and the impending move that is having me love this patented garment carrier. The Clothes and Go allows you to easily carry clothes on hangers like no other carrier, box or piece of luggage can. Simply lay it on a wide surface (bed or floor), plop down the clothes right from their hangers, secure, close and go.…Continue

Those who divorce often experience hateful feelings towards their ex at some point, especially if their partners cheated. Obsessing about what happened as it all unraveled, replaying the disappointments, wounding and shocking betrayals–all leading to horrendous feelings of loss and loneliness. They…Continue

Do you ever feel, that as the centrifugal force of the house, that mommy’s mood sets the tone for the the whole family? This Blog post came to me a couple of weeks ago, when my girlfriend said, “Can you Blog
about how when we are not good, the rest of our family never feels good?
And how we can pull ourselves out of these slumps?”
So really, what happens if mom’s not happy?…Continue
