I recently watched a screening of "Sex and the City 2." Yes, the clothes were over the top. Yes, the indulgence was completely ridiculous. Yes, most of the movie was a fantabulously fantastic, overexcessive, and overabundant in richness---and we true SATC fans absolutely adored each moment of it!
I do applaud the introduction of the storyline involving the complexity of motherhood. In one of the… Continue

Mothers can have bad days – kids misbehave, work gets on top of you, the house is a dump, your husband is being useless, etc. Mothers often tell me that when they are having a bad day, they think of me and they instantly feel better. The chaos in my life provides them with some comfort in those manic mama moments.
But I have to let you in on a little secret: it’s not that bad. In fact, it’s pretty darn good. Sure, I don’t get a lot of sleep and nights out on the town are few and far… Continue

It starts the day you pee on the stick. I’m not talking about that
regrettable Valentine’s gesture toward your partner. The stick from CVS
that is 99.9% accurate, and of which you purchased four.
You pee on the stick and the plus sign shows up. Before you’ve finished washing your hands (wash them!!! Use hand sanitizer!!!!), you’ve been conscripted into a war that you… Continue

Anyone who has ever read my blog knows that I am a super advocate of
sisterhood. I think that cat fights between women are ridiculous and
that if we all spent a lot more time being real and supporting each
other, life would be so much better for all of us. Why does it always
have to be a competition? My kid does this, does yours? My husband
makes this much money, what does yours make? My house is bigger than
yours. It truly is a… Continue

Several weeks ago a friend who is struggling to find a way to get along with her 14 year old daughter asked me how I coped with raising a teenager. I told her that my daughter and I got along great during her teen years, and actually had fun together. A look of shock mixed with disbelieve came over her face. She asked, “So what is your secret?” Having never given much thought to the subject, I decided to ask my daughter… Continue

It seems everything we need to know in life we learn in preschool. My 4
year old has been repeating, "Mommy, to have a good friend, you've got
to be a good friend!" No doubt a piece of sage advice bestowed upon her
by her wonderful preschool teacher.Anyways, Bella tends to like to
share these words of wisdom with Mommy. Normally, I say ,"Yes, sweetie.
That is right!" But, this time I actually took the advice to heart and

Ok, Ladies its Tuesday and ,as I said, today is the day we can all vent "anonymously" if preferred, and get everything off our minds..without judgement:)I will start the ball rolling:
Is it wrong that sometimes I wish I was brave enough to dose my kids with ibuprofin, so they would go to sleep at a reasonable hour without me having to lay down with them?
Sometimes, I really miss my life before I was married or had kids, so much so that I fantasize about who I used to be:)LOL

While pregnant or even before, every woman inevitably thinks about the topic of breastfeeding. Will I breastfeed my baby? For how long? I think most women have the best intentions and try to breastfeed and then stop after different periods of time – they might breastfeed a week, they make it through the rough first few weeks and go on to nurse for a few months or a year, and then there are the extended breastfeeding moms like me.
Breastfeeding was one of the things I most looked… Continue

Many parents view their children’s excess weight as an aesthetic issue. They worry their kids won’t be liked in school, won’t be picked in gym, and won’t be pursued by members of the opposite sex. According to the American Institute of Cancer Research, parents have a lot more than looks to be concerned about. New research shows that about 100,500 new cases of cancer are caused by obesity each year.
Obesity is known to cause many deleterious health effects but this study is one of the… Continue

Last month, a colleague approached me about exploring the role of acupuncture in weight loss. As a traditional Western medicine physician, I was skeptical about its merits. While many of my patients have used herbs and other holistic treatments, I have never been a believer. But, since I am willing to do anything to help my patients, I decided to use myself as a guinea pig to see if acupuncture was something I should be recommending.
First, I did some research. I wanted to know the… Continue
