I know it is Spring: My car is covered in hyper-yellow pollen and my son and I have started to take our allergy medicine more seriously than in the other months. I used to think that he wasn't going to develop allergies, but a quick glance at his puffy eyes and runny nose has me breaking out the children's medicine so he can dry up and get back to bike rides.…Continue

I have two t-shirts that I thought I had specially made just for fun. The first one was shortly before my wedding. I had it made to say "Mrs. XXXXX" (but instead of the Xs, it was my husband's name). The second was right after my son was born and it says XXXXXX's Mom (but instead of the Xs, it has my son's name).…Continue

In my 20 months of being a mum, I have been found frequently banging my head against a wall asking – how can all us smart, savvy individuals be found stumbling into this state of motherhood as if someone got a stick and poked us in both eyes with it, and as if it hadn’t been…Continue
Everyone tells you your life will change once you have children. That’s probably the greatest understatement of a lifetime.
Having children, while hugely rewarding, is probably one of the biggest shocks you can encounter out there, as us largely selfish creatures have to shelve…Continue

When we are little girls, some of us dream of becoming moms, holding and loving our baby dolls while practicing to care for the real thing one day. Others sit in front of the mirror holding the hairbrush microphone, imagining themselves as pop stars, while there are those that sit for hours and draw up beautiful sketches of clothing hoping to one day become a designer.
Whatever the dream, from the time we have pigtails and bows in our hair, we are attracted to certain careers. I…Continue

Sometimes I’ve found myself wondering, who am I exactly? What is it that makes me, me? In my younger days, I thought that I knew exactly what I was all about, but youth sometimes plays tricks on you and makes you think that the world is a much smaller place than it actually is. As my world grew, so many things began to change and I began to see things through different eyes. Our race, gender, education level, social class and so many other elements make us who…Continue

Can white people call themselves ‘mixed’? Can they see themselves as something other than white, if they appear visually white? Sometimes, I don’t know. All my childhood, I struggled with that label…the label of being white, but not feeling white, and not being accepted by “whites”. To me, if feels uncomfortable to identify as white, even though I know that people see me as white, that society treats me as white. My childhood is a confusing one and it seems a bit risky…Continue

While I’m on the beach topic…I couldn’t help myself.
What in the world is that title about? Hotties?!
No, not a mid-life crisis. Just a thought or more as motherhood and age settle in on this thirty-something-mom of three kids.
A few weeks ago I had a lovely best-friends-date. Yes, two moms, happily strapped with one baby each (all older children left at home.) Lots of…Continue
