Forgiving Ourselves As Parents

Feeling guilty when you are parent is something that seems to become second nature. ​​You just can't help yourself! Very often it's the little things that will rack you with guilt, sometimes (but rarely) it might be something big. This 'big'…

Mom brings home the bacon. (And the milk.)

My son was six weeks old when I returned to work. And I had the same thought every day when I dropped him off at day care:

This is crazy. Why am I working? I should be staying home with him. I mean, my salary covers our healthcare and the cost of his school and some other bills, but I think we could live without it.…

Navigating Life's Twists and Turns

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.


Remember playing car-racing games at the arcade, trying to stay on the virtual road while going as fast as you can? In those videos, sharp curves keep switching and obstacles suddenly appear, causing you to crash and burn if your reactions aren’t fast enough.


It may be fun to play a game, but what about when life itself mirrors this wild ride? Whether you're actually on a…

GEMS for Working Moms


Is your life an endless cycle, revolving around work and taking care of the kids? If so, you’re not alone. In a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, ½ of American women say they don’t have enough time to spend on themselves and to choose the activities they enjoy. We all know that saying ‘yes’ to more responsibility can make us feel safer with the boss and help us avoid conflict in the family. But too often ‘yes’ is our default mode with just about…

Siblings: Love > Guilt

There's the perennial discussion... is it better to be the oldest or the youngest sibling? There are obviously pros and cons to both and it also depends on each individual family, but I think, and my opinion is obviously bias, the older siblings definitely have one thing on the younger siblings. 


Older siblings have to live with Older Sibling Guilt (OSG).


Being an older sibling myself in all my years of talking to other older siblings, there is not one, NOT…

Tooth Fairy Fail

If I could take myself into a dark alley and kick my own ass, I totally would cause I seriously dropped the parenting ball the other night (once again).  Yes, I completely failed my duty as the Tooth Fairy, y'all.  Now I know that plenty of people have said that they, too, have forgotten a tooth here and there, but I swore that I would never…

Conflict Resolution

I just recently read a comment on a friend's blog about her decision to stay home for her next baby girl.. while I don't want to be part of the already ridiculous fervor of the so-called "mommy wars", the comment struck a nerve with me. Especially because, the comment's last sentence meant that (although I know the comment has nothing to do with me and I could just be projecting here) the choice of going to work means that one's priorities aren't straight. In any case, stay at home,…

Guilt Free Bedtime Routine


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…

The Creature From The Back Of The Fridge

The meal was "out of this world." That's why it was saved, presumably.

And indeed, it may have been heavenly in its original form, I'm sure; now? Not so much.

A science project, perhaps, a study in microbiology and the tenacity of bacteria. Mould is a very curious but fascinating thing, I'm embarrassed to admit.

Of what do I speak? Surely you know: the evil that lurks at the back of the fridge (contained in Tupperware, of course).…

Favourite Kid Syndrome, Anyone?


In the last few days I became uncomfortably aware of an article doing the rounds promoting the notion that parents have a favourite child (apparently there's a guy promoting a book about sibling rivalry, which I don't need to…

** Screaming is evidently my son's new favorite hobby.

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…

The Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy Walked Into a Bar...

Yea, this would likely be a pretty funny joke if it existed. Perhaps it does, somewhere out there.
Nonetheless, whether or not it exists doesn't detract from the fact that these entities - ones that millions of Western children hold dear - might very well be....well....not exactly real.…

Maria's Random Rants - The Price We Pay

The dictionary defines guilt as “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, or wrong, whether real or imagined.” Real or imagined, that sounds about right. Might even be more accurate, at least helpful, if they added a footnote, “Warning: Duration of guilt known to last several years. Atonement not guaranteed.” Now that’s the kind of guilt I know. Come to think of it, I didn’t know there was another kind.


It’s taken me a while, but I’m fairly proud of…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
