An excuse to hold more family movie nights

The Social Media Diet

I’ve recently had to put myself on a social media diet in order to prevent myself from going totally insane with the stresses of life and the state of our country. I’ve had to do a little trimming of people and organizations that I follow on Facebook to prevent “Breaking News” stories from plaguing my time line.

There is only so many times a day I can care about the new Kardasian love interest or baby daddy.

And everyone knows that politics is my thing, but I have stopped…

Gender in media does matter

My son is at a fun age where he can appreciate more movies than a few years ago. So, we have been watching Disney movies lately. He laughs at all the right places in Lilo & Stitch and dances next to me during A Little Mermaid. And I can't tell you how happy I was when he cited Moana as one of his favorites.…

Getting permission to post

My son was looking at the Waze app on my phone, alerting me to potential traffic in areas that were not actually on our route. He must have closed the app, because he started asking me about the other apps and what they did.…

The know-it-all in our household

I have made two key points very clear to my son over the past year:

  1. Mommy is not an octopus.
  2. Mommy does not know everything.

The first concept is an acknowledgement that I can't do everything at once, so if he sees me…

A lifetime of superheroes

When my son was four, he told me about Batman. He had learned about the superhero from his friends at school and was brimming with the type of facts that get garbled up when children try to teach each other information.…

Mothers Are Human Beings: We All Make Mistakes

I have a shocking revelation for you. Although we often look like superheroes, mothers are in fact HUMAN! This means that we are fallible, we make mistakes. Yes, all of us! We lose a child at Target, we leave a hot cup of coffee unattended for a moment, we don’t realize the basement door is open when our…

Mommy, please put the phone down

In my head, I still think I do a good job of not using my smartphone in front of my son. That may or may not be reality: I have been working a lot lately, so I know he has seen me distracted by my phone. But the subject is on my mind a lot: When I am with my son, I should be fully with my son.…

Being more than Mrs. Mommy

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).…

Another reason why my son isn't listening to me

My son and I have a deal to help him get through his school morning routine: If my little bear completes his tasks early (dressed, teeth and hair brushed) then he is allowed to play on his iPad. This gives me enough time to make his lunch and do my hair and make-up.…

Put your phone down and parent

My son is sitting on my lap as I write this post. He is watching the way my fingers move across the keyboard and he is reading the words as I type them.



I try very hard to not use my phone too much in front of my son. Yes, it is very rewarding when it is my turn in a game, or I get a text message from a friend. But, he is my son, and he is much more rewarding…

Teens spend more time on media than sleeping

I work nine hours a day. From around 8:30 until 5:30 (if I am paying attention to the alert that tells me to leave), I am answering emails, rescheduling projects, attending meetings, straightening out issues over the phone and reading more emails through lunch. Nine hours.…
