Parenthood, we have a problem. My sweet baby girl has gone off the deep end. Even though she's only eight years old, I'm seriously considering enrolling her in Maury Povich's boot camp. Or a chain gang. Or both. Cause seriously? This shit's gotta stop. The kid has been sent to the principal's office not once but TWICE in one week, and one of those times was on…Continue

Obviously, I love my kids with every little fiber of my being, but I swear to, well......you, actually, that they're involved in some sort of conspiracy theory to drive me straight to the loony bin. Seriously, if I didn't know any better, I'd think they'd bought stock in Crazy Town, which is clearly where I'll be residing soon enough. Any potential…Continue

http://singlehoodtomotherhood.blogspot.comFor most of my adult life I worked in real estate. There are many perks to being self-employed; the hours, the flexibility, the independence. The downside of course is the lack of steady income. If you are not good at time management or self-motivation it can be really tough. This is why, industry wide, there are always seminars on how to manage your time effectively, how to…Continue

We've all had a conversation with THAT mom at one time or another. The one who can't talk to you like a normal human being because she's so busy telling you how talented and smart and perfect her child is and "don't you think he's amazing?"

** Your cabin fever's reached Code Red when you're jealous of the squirrels outside breathing in all that fresh, freezing cold air.
** Trying to work a crossword puzzle when you're tired just makes you feel stupid. And tired.
** I've washed my hands so many times over the past few days that I may no longer have fingerprints.

When people used to tell me, "Get the sleep you can now because you'll never sleep again," I laughed. I now know the kind of fatigue I battle on a daily basis is nothing like the days after late nights at work or cramming for tests in college. I'd also hear about "mom brain" and how formerly brilliant women have been rendered useless by the theory that pregnancy feeds off brain cells. I thought that was a myth too until I found myself…Continue

Boxing Day used to be a high point for many of us parents. After a year of buying full-price retail items and perhaps getting some items on sale every so often, this one day of the year promised to relieve us from the financial strain of raising children in a modern world. Kids, after all, are expensive.
While the holidays proved to be a high point of the year, let's face it: getting a snowsuit or new running shoes for our children at 60 per cent off was almost too much to bear.…

I love the end of the year. It's a great time to reflect on your life. See what you have accomplished and set new goals for the New Year. Don't you agree?
One of my goals for the New Year is to really build up my residual income. I LOVE residual income because it pays you for a lifetime for all the work you have already…Continue

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through our pad,
Every creature was stirring, being exceptionally bad.
The stockings were hung too close to the floor,
And Goatdog was eating each one that he tore.
The twins were bouncing off the walls in their…Continue

I am also a Penn State alum and a mom of three children, two of them young boys. I share your disgust and I mourn the loss of innocence of all of those victims. I also mourn the loss of our icon, Joe Paterno. Paterno was more than a football coach. For decades, he embodied how to lead with respect, honor and high standards. Unfortunately, now he must be judged himself by those same high standards. I agree with the board's decision, but I do not applaud it. There is nothing here to…Continue
