Most of the time, the quality of retirement plans depends purely on the amount you want to save for old age. Many people are dependent on social security or work pensions for their income once they retire. However, very often these are just not sufficient. Therefore, it is important that every person plan for exactly how much money they prefer to save for their retirement.…Continue

When you become a parent, you dedicate your entire life to caring for another life. Quickly, you learn the importance of putting others needs before your own. You happily give them all of your time, your space, your love, and sometimes your food (when they get a bit older), amongst many other things. You knew going into this that you would be dedicating your whole self to this little life you are bringing into the world. While that is an admirable…Continue

My wonderful husband and I have been together for more than 20 years. (Not married for that long, but together.) When I tell people that number they look at me in shock and then ask if we were high school sweethearts. I am hopeful that their initial shock is because I look too young to have been with someone for 20 years and not shock for some other reason.…Continue

I have an amazing team that I manage at work, and I often tell them that the point of praise is not to make them feel good about themselves. Rather, the point of praise is to give them positive feedback on the behaviors I want them to continue or repeat in the future. If it also makes them feel good in the moment, then that is a bonus.…Continue

Great storytelling comes to life because of words . Being able to paint a vivid…Continue

Like many working parents, I struggle with work/life balance. At least once a day, I wonder if I am spending enough time with my family, or if I am committed enough to my job. I do my best to model a family first attitude for my team, but I know they have seen evidence of me working late into the night from time to time. I hate not knowing how my son will really feel about having two working parents - and the effects upon his life from…Continue

I know… I know. Last year, I said I was done. I said that I was going to put all this costume stuff to rest, after I dressed up as the Nutcracker, for my son’s Christmas lunch and I was the only parent to do so. I thought I put the nail in the coffin when I did it, as I thought to myself, it may be time to close that book.
However, my son’s response to the DIY costume was priceless. Together, in the past, we have also done Captain America, American Dream, Spider- Man/Woman, Black…Continue

One of the raging debates of the twentieth century has been the question of whether abortion, as a form of infanticide, is wrong. What does legislation think about it? Science and religion? What does it all come down to? Morality? Logic? The controversy has gone even further with proponents and opponents being labeled as ‘pro-life’ and ‘pro-choice’ respectively. Whichever way you choose to look at it, the morality clause always takes a hit. Unless you want to apply common…Continue

I’ve been trying to find time to sit down and write my “end of summer” post, but when you’re a working mom AND a student… it’s almost impossible.
When you’re a working mom, summers don’t have as much impact as when you were a kid. The…Continue

After Juliet was a newborn I got her and Lincoln on the same schedule. My kids wake up the same time (thanks to Lincoln), eat at the same time for the most part, and go to bed the same time. With Juliet still being under one. She naps whenever she wants during the day and will eat in-between meals. Getting them on the same schedule is one of the best things you can do for yourself as a mom to keep you sane and make you feel a…Continue

What is wrong with my kids is a question I ask myself at least 10 times a day! Anyone here with me? Don’t lie! I don’t mean it in a bad way, of course not, I love my kids to the moon and back; more then anything. That question is more generally speaking because there really is no answer when it comes to this one!
There is nothing wrong with them, they are just normal, fun-loving, and BIG personality kids that I have created BUT is it really too much to ask that they learn no…Continue
