My six-year-old daughter came home from school, threw her backpack on the couch and blurted out, “We talked about what we wanted to be when we grow up.”
“Oh, yeah? What did you decide?” I asked going through a mental list of all the possible choices that would eventually lead to her unprecedented success.
“I want to be a mom like you.” My heart sank into my stomach. At a moment… Continue

Those who desire to work at home often want to do so because they want flexible hours, to spend more time with family and be there own boss
However, it's difficult knowing when to stop working when you're just starting
out. In an office environment, your time was planned. You had a time you
resumed at work, your lunch hour, etc.…

After being out of work, and living on one income plus a small amount of unemployment, we decided that I needed to go back to work. Violet was older, she was more adjusted and a little less clingy. We decided to
give it a try - again.

Recently, I heard a speaker say that, “the home is the domestic church.” Home is where the family flourishes, traditions are created, memories are cherished, where morals are instilled, and most importantly where our children learn their values. The church is place of worship that provides Christians with fellowship, instruction, and comfort.
Bringing our children to church is an integral part of their Christian education. The church is a wonderful place for families to gather and… Continue

The thought of starting a business can be exciting and daunting at the
same time. It can be exciting because finally, you are taking steps
towards achieving your dreams. It can be daunting because, you do not
want to make a mistake and ruin everything.
Therefore, to avoid becoming a static, another number in the list of
failed businesses take the time to read once in a while. It is often
said that, "Leaders are… Continue

When I was younger, I never thought that I would be a stay-at-home mom. I had thought that I would finish school, work for a while, get married and then have kids. I guess I never really gave much thought to
what would happen after I had my children, but I also don’t think that it
would’ve mattered because from what I have learned, nothing is like it seems on
Leading up to having my daughter,… Continue

Tis the season...the season for heavier and carbier foods. As soon as the weather gets cooler and I add my extra blanket to the bed and dig out my favorite fuzzy pink slippers, my body starts to signal that winter is near by berating with cravings for all things carbs! Seriously, like bears, I swear it's some biological need…

I'm not sure if the lines have blurred because my work has taken over my life or because I haven't slept!
My work requires me to travel a lot. I live on the east coast, but have clients on the west coast, so I work late a lot. I have a very unusual job in that I work with celebrities and people in the film and publishing field.
I love to travel. I love creating videos. I love reading and writing. So, my work and my hobbies are nearly one and the… Continue

Yesterday I was at Madison's basketball game just like I have been every weekend for the last umpteen
years. Everything is so nice... enjoying the game... winning...all is good. Problem is, lately I can't actually watch the game because Hudson gets so much attention. Everyone that passes by tends to say something. Of course I don't mind. Most any stay-at-home mom
will tell you they love any adult conversation, so this is a good excuse for some small… Continue

When I made the decision that I needed to find something I could do from home that would help us out with our finances I never really imagined how much “work” it actually entailed! I have been working from home now for almost 2 years, and it has been a huge learning experience for me.
It really sounds great when you think about working from home - really, how much better can it get? You don’t have to commute, deal with traffic, gas, getting up early,…

The obsession with my newly found identity crisis led me to believe that the labels put on SAHM’s strictly came from the 50’s and 60’s Susie Homemaker persona; however, the eruption of shows like The Real Housewives of… (pick a city, any city) has 21st century housewifery represented as gossiping cats with faux fur who claw at each other at social events. This new 21st century housewife has no responsibilities except to keep a high social standing and… Continue

I have been misplaced by a weak economy – trapped in a small house with three children, stripped of my self-worth and blind folded to any clear direction. Though I have been a stay-at-home mom for nine years, five of them have been spent trying to build a career. Unlike most moms I didn’t choose to be a stay-at-homer; I was cast into the role when the $800 a month daycare bill was pushing us toward the poorhouse. Since landing this role I have been fighting to eke out a… Continue

I was in the middle of a time-honored tradition, the 5:00pm banging of the pots and pans, when my oldest came in the kitchen and asked, “Are you cooking dinner?” I replied with a nod of my head which provoked a spontaneous reaction of his nose wrinkling and a follow-up question, “Do we have to eat the black parts?”
It is no secret that I can’t cook; furthermore, I hate to clean, I hate sitting at the park…

In order to supplement my income, I sell clothes on eBay
. After doing my research I have found that certain name brand items sell better than others. Here are a few of the brands that do well:
- Ralph Lauren (anything with pony logo on the chest)
- Banana Republic
- Brooks Brothers
- Tommy Bahama
- Juicy Couture
- North Face
