This post is actually a part of my blog
on how I win my daughter's back
from her attachment to her nanny.
As a Career Mom, I only have about 45 minutes in the morning and 1 hour at night to be spent with my daughter. During the day, she spends more that 12 hours with her nanny.
At first, I was so… Continue

Are you an entrepreneur, artist, blogger, musician, or writer who wants to make a decent living? You can! I already blogged about how I heard David Mathison speak about using social media to market what you are passionate about and to use social media to your advantage. His book, Be The Media
, goes into much detail about how you only need 1000 true fans to make a decent living. That seems entirely doable!
Be The Media
is one of those book you want all of your family and… Continue

Have you heard about the woman who's going to give birth live on the internet? That's right, according to Boston.com, Lynsee (that's two "E's"), a 23 year-old teacher from Minneapolis, is going to bring forth her 1st child live on camera for the whole world to see.
Am I shocked? Not really. Grossed out a bit, but not shocked. She's going to famous. Really, really famous...for like half a day...maybe longer if she goes for the Petocin. Now who doesn't want that?

Halloween falls on a Saturday this year- what a bonus for working moms! No need to race home from work to take your children door to door. No need to feel guilty that you can't make it home until past dark. Halloween is on Saturday this year- what a wonderful thing! My son is of the age where he thinks it's hysterical to dress up like a cheerleader and actually convinced me to buy him the outfit. Pom poms and all. My daughter, on the other hand, had her mind set on being Hannah Montana which… Continue

I just received some devastating news. My son informed me he is not going trick-or-treating this year! It was bad enough when my daughter stopped.
I’m having déjà vu. This reminds me of how I felt when my daughter was 2-1/2 years old and I learned that naptimes didn’t last forever. Ridiculously, it had never occurred to me that my child would actually grow older and not require that down time any more—regardless of the fact that mommy still… Continue

You know what’s sad and funny at the same time? It’s when you discover that something you believed to be true about yourself, beyond a shadow of a doubt, isn’t true at all. It’s especially funny when that thing you believed was flattering, like a special talent you thought you naturally possessed, but, in fact, was non-existent. What’s worse is once you discover the unspeakable truth you can’t help but take inventory, remembering all the times you shared that “talent” publicly. The feedback you… Continue

Century Old Fashioned "Handcrafted Soap".

This post could very well get me unfollowed on Twitter. Mommy bloggers all over are going to read this (this assumes, of course, that I have that many readers) and say "See? It's women like that who don't deserve a child." Look, I'm just one of those women who knows her limitations. I have one very awesome daughter and absolutely no wish to roll that particular set of dice again. Nope. I know when to fold and walk away from the table. And don't ask me about these gambling metaphors either.… Continue

Yesterday was a great day. (Not really, but for purposes of this post, it was fantastic) I finally had a meeting with the director of the organization, Friends of Seniors, where I'll be volunteering to drive senior citizens to their doctor appointments, or grocery shopping or wherever. Plus, I got my first "assignment" which was pretty exciting. (Omg...when I re-read that sentence, as noble as it may sound....dude...I'm a freaking loser) Anyway, the other thing that made it fantabulous was the… Continue

I'm not embarrassed to say it, "I love the 80's!" I'm sure I have a diary entry somewhere that reads "...when I grow up I want to be just like Coco (ya know, Irene Cara's character from the film, Fame)." I think it was a combo of my young age, the music and the fashion. Truth be known, I listen to 80's music all the time. In fact, my I-pod is loaded with tunes from Culture Club, Madonna, Donna Summer and The Go-Go's. And as much as I love me some 80's fashion I did make a promise to my husband… Continue

I recently read a blog article titled, “Controlling the Techie Tween,” by Gila Brown, parent coach, over at Mamapedia Voices.
I read with interest, her parental coaching tips regarding technology and tweens. She states, “While kids may not be able to articulate their need for gadgetry, parents need to understand and respect it. Trying to control the usage or censor the content, only serves to undermine the parent-child relationship.” And, “The bottom line is that trying to control… Continue

(Disclaimer: Adult Content or something....I couldn't make this shit up)
There was this guy. His name was Wayne but he looked so much like Kevin Costner that me and my best friend called him Kevin. Not to be confused with the real Kevin I was also seeing who owned a restaurant and did things that I'd tell him to do that I'm sure he'd never want anyone to even speculate about, let alone write about on their blog. But that's a whole 'nother post.
So I went out with Kevin… Continue

As a mom, you question everyday – heck sometimes every hour, if you’re doing the right thing as a parent. Whether it be how you discipline your children, the tv time you allow, healthy habits, etc, etc… There are many days that at the end of the day you wonder…did I do anything right today?
Last night Ella had an especially emotional, whiny night. She was exhausted from waking up at 6am, swimming for hours and not resting virtually the entire day. She was driving me and her brother… Continue

I do hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day, a holiday that originated in Canada out of labor disputes in the 1870's... who knew? Funny how these disputes press on some 200 years later as I remind you of the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act recently passed by Obama.
Although, I can't say I was in much of a celebratory mood this Labor Day as I absorbed the news of the recent death of Ted Kennedy and a lesser known, DJ AM. Loved him or hated him as a politician, Ted Kennedy leaves behind five… Continue

My 9 year old daughter informed our dinner companions last night that I have a "dark side."
Despite the fact that it's true, I was alarmed that my daughter picked up on it. Of course, my sister and cousin were hysterical laughing and pointing fingers at me. I told them to "shut-up."
Does a 9 year old even know what a dark side is? And if so, when did she see it? Did she see me scratch my nose with my middle finger at some old lady who cut us off the other day? Did she… Continue

My daughter loves animals. Let me clarify...my daughter is OBSESSED with animals. One of the aspects of Aspergers - it's her "passion".
When she was a toddler, we bought her plastic animals in bulk to play with and she would spend hours organizing them in a marching waves across the tv room floor. The penguins in front, polar bears off to the side - so they won't eat the penguins - monkeys pushing up the rear.
As a Jewish mom I didn't let it throw me. I just thought, "so,… Continue

I’ve been over thinking again, dammit, and this time it is about assholes. Ok here we go... It’s the little assholes in life that really irk me the most. This is my love letter to five recent assholes I’ve met.
To the dude that I smile and wave on and allow to cut in front of me in evening rush hour traffic while I’m racing to pick up my daughter before pre-school closes and they call child welfare on me for not being there on time and then charge me one dollar for every minute I’m… Continue
