Let's just say I am a bit overwhelmed by everything blog! I know I'm a beginner and I'm sure there is a lot to learn. But where do I begin?
The thing of it is, I know I have information that other women would find useful. I've been through a lot in my short life and have gained a ton of perspective. I don't like to give up on anything, and certainly do not want to take away time from my baby.
Maybe I need some good constructive criticism or…Continue

In October, after I lost my job, I shared 8 Job Hunting Sites For The Out-of-Work Mom. These were the sites I planned to utilize in my job hunt. I'm still utilizing them. There's been a few leads. On the very few interviews I've had, I came across and chatted with quite a few people.…Continue

My little monster never (rarely) takes a nap for me. She loves her mommy so much that she doesn’t want to close her eyes at all when I am around. Nevermind the fact that I enjoy quiet time and I can accomplish a lot more when she is down for nap. No, she parties hard when mommy’s around.
This semester, for the first time ever, I am taking day classes because I have to (budget cuts, lack of classes, last semester for B.A., etc.). So I go to school at 1:00. Guess what my little one…Continue
They say when you turn 40 you start to reflect on life and experience a bit of self-discovery. They also say that 40 years old is a good time to assess current friendships and to rid oneself of any toxic energy. I am not quite sure who “they” are but, I do confess (keep it low), I am turning 40 this February and it appears as if I have some work to do! My wonderfully, shorter than me, husband threw a celebratory…Continue

What does it take for us to trust our own instincts? Does having the confidence to pose a question mean that we have the guts to advocate for what we believe is right? Asking questions is probably the first step in trusting ourselves. It shows we value what we think.
But what does it take to trust ourselves? Experience. There's two ways to get that- the hard way- actually go through it or the easy way- learn from someone else. I think that's why stories can inspire us. To the…Continue

The second crucial component to so many people's New Year's resolutions to lose weight seems to involve running out and getting a gym membership and trainer...stat! We regulars annoyingly anticipate the influx of newbies, as they take our usual machine or place in class, because we know most of them won't…Continue

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to my iPhone. I can’t leave the house without it. I am always on it. I love it. Sometimes I think my husband regrets the day he said I should get an iPhone. The list of reasons why, as a busy mom, I love my iPhone include: Read the list here

Does yellow make you feel like a banana? Is red just like lava? And does purple make you feel like an onion? If so, then you, too, will succeed as an Art Mom in my child's classroom.
Being an Art Mom is simple: You prepare a little program that teaches the kids about artists or color or a style of art, and then develop a little project to go with it. It's a lot of fun - second graders are a very appreciative audience.
I decided to talk about color and moods - you know, how does…Continue

To Driving home from school one night last week I got a text from my husband “Don’t freak out, child is cleaning a big mess.” “Okay” I respond, trying to figure out what happened but not brave enough to ask. I do some mental preparations as I continue my drive home telling myself that it will be okay, it can’t be that bad. Then I walk in the door.…Continue

So, you've made your resolutions and promised yourself that this year, unlike all the previous ones, is YOUR year! You've joined a gym or invested in several exercise DVDs and have actually started implementing your workout plan...at least I hope so! You also cleaned out the junk food from your fridge, freezer, and pantry and have swapped out some items…Continue

Yesterday I was so tired and lacking motivation to get out of bed, I decided to stay in bed instead of getting up early and taking a shower before my little monster woke up. Boy, did I pay the price for that decision. Instead of the nice, relaxing shower I usually take while she is sleeping I had a really hot and then really…Continue

The kids crept in to wake us up at 6 a.m today, just as they promised.
I'm sure they'd been up much longer, but they know the rules - no one goes downstairs on Christmas morning before 6 a.m.
Soon after, the squeals and oohs and ahhs began. But not for the presents I expected.
The big-ticket items were appreciated, of course. But my son's favorite gift wasn't the Wii game we splurged on. It was a Mario figurine stocking stuffer from Santa. ("It can move its…Continue

A beautiful blogger and great friend of mine wrote a post today about being a fake stay at home mom (during break as a teacher.) She got a lot of well-deserved hits, and I laughed at myself, saying, "I'm going to post where you post, claiming that SAHM is a career."
But, then, I thought, what the heck, self? SAHM is a career.
She writes: As a teacher "for several weeks out of the…
