License to Kill, Literally

Peace and Love on this Sunday morning.

It has been an extremely sad week for Humanity but is it really anything new? And the fact that I can so easily think that isn't that even sadder?

Letter to My Clingy, Cranky, Teething Child

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.28.24 PM

knew I shouldn’t have gotten used to the great night sleep, perfect, clockwork naps, and how amazing you were doing with independent play the past few months… I knew that.

But I did… I sort of took it all for granted. That’s how well you were doing!

Until, of course, that nasty molar popped in a few months early.

This week has been rough on Mommy, you know. Between your ravenous appetite (most days you almost eat…

To the Mom Using Food Stamps : I See You

mom-foodstamps-cereal



To the mom using foodstamps, I see you.

I see the fear in your eyes when someone gets in line behind you.  You wonder if they’re judging your food choices, not knowing that the cupcakes you’re buying are for your son’s birthday.  Last year your family had to buy his cake because you couldn’t afford it, you never want that hollow feeling in the pit of your stomach again.  You felt like such a…

Why I Wasn’t Ready To Be a Mom

We were out in New York City with friends when we decided we were ready.A packed bar downtown, the kind of place you forget. We’d both had way too many nights like this one: too many watered down vodka sodas, nights spent shoving through the crowd, competing for the bartender’s attention.

This wasn’t the scene for us anymore, it was easy to see.

I don’t remember…

Teething Essentials

13450932_10100293262528465_4588418572177776565_n

My little man is four months old already. How the heck is that possible? I swear last month was February. We can't possibly be nearing the end of June right now, can we?! I've learned a lot the last four months about my little guy. He is quite a bit fussier than his big sister. He does NOT like his carseat. He's not crazy about the swing. He is chubby and pudgy in all the right places. He loves to be held...all the time. I call him my little hot tamale because he puts off…

From City to Suburb: Top 5 Toys for Outdoor Play

When we lived in a city, my kids went to the playground daily. In my stroller basket, you could always find the essentials: helmets, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and balls. Then we moved to the suburbs, a somewhat rural suburb, where we no longer walk to the park, and kids ride in cars and buses. Would our playground toys gather dust in our new home? Happily, minus the stroller, my city kids have stuck to their roots. And yes, our first big purchase for the house was…

Lazy Parent or Teaching Independence?

Originally posted on Just Playing House.

I'm a lazy parent! At least where it counts. This realization was inspired by a friend's similar confession. That may seem like a really strange thing to say, but it's true. I try not to do for my children as much as possible. That means…

10 THINGS I LEARNED AFTER A DAY WITHOUT MY PHONE

I woke up Sunday as if it were any other day, in a whirr of excitement to get ready for church. For some reason I’m just not a morning person, so I wake up with just enough time to shower, get little E ready after he eats and head out the door.

While waiting for church to start, I was talking with Trevor and his sister. She started talking about how her smart phone is so distracting. She’s constantly looking at it and was even thinking of switching to a flip phone.

Parenting Standards… Lowered. | Anna Lane on MomCave LIVE

Dear Parents I Used to Nanny For,

Twenty years, twenty pounds, and a marriage and two kids ago, I was your nanny. And I judged you. My parenting standards were based on unrealistic expectations. I knew nothing of the shit storm that is parenting. While I made bewildered mental notes about the state of your home, the behavior of your children, and your fashion choices, you were keeping actual human beings alive. I apologize.

I have seen the light. And so has Anna Lane, who…

Why I Hope My Daughter Experiences Playing on a TEAM

I spent my entire childhood surrounded by impressive young women. I spent long bus rides with them. Laughed with them, ran with them, and cried with them. This week the gym I grew up playing in got torn down. Well, the whole school is getting torn down, but I could really care less about that. I mean, I'm happy the kids of that town are getting a new school. It was falling apart when I was there 10 years ago, definitely necessary. Yet, something about that filthy old gym getting torn down…

A Mom's Musings

Welcome to my life. Well, I should say a part of my life. I’ve been thinking about blogging and because I love to write and I have a few interests in certain areas, I decided to put it all together and start a blog. Where’s the drum roll? So if you’re a mom, you know exactly what somedays look like. For example, have you ever looked around the house and asked yourself “Good gosh, what the heck did I even do today?” But really, you did a lot there just isn’t much to show for it! Been there,…

Why I put oil in my coffee & how I lost 35 pounds

This morning I brewed my coffee and then poured it in the blender with a tablespoon of organic fair trade extra virgin coconut oil. 

"Making your oil slick again, eh?" my husband commented.

If someone had told me a year ago that I'd be drinking coffee with no sugar or half n half, I would've scoffed at…
