Time to "Face" Getting Older

We focus so heavily on our children’s birthdays and how fast they are growing up and getting older.  Newsflash…that means we are getting older too!  As my husband is about to turn 40 and I am only a few short years away, I have been focusing more and more on what it really means to be getting older.  In our twenties, my husband and I always talked about what 40 would look like.  When you are 21, 40 might as well be 70.  Not sure how it…

Thank god she's not our nanny!

I read a lot of Mother's Day blogs and articles online yesterday, and one article was about the pressure to be the perfect mom. Moms are not even willing to admit to the every day silly mistakes that all parents make anymore, because no mom wants to expose herself to the criticism and scorn from the other "perfect" parents. Back in the day, you could screw up occasionally and admit it without fear of universal…

Other uses for diaper rash ointment: A handy tip from grayhairedmom



There are none. Especially, don't use it to brush your teeth. Yes, I tried it; No, not on purpose; And no, I wasn't even old or a mom yet, so I really can't use senility, "Mommy Brain," or sleep deprivation for an excuse.

I was babysitting my niece one day, and we both took a big nap after lunch. I woke up…

So this old, pregnant woman stumbles out of a bar.....

New York City is not a bad place to be pregnant at age 50. But even though most New Yorkers have seen it all and make fewer assumptions, I was prepared for awkward situations, I thought. I knew strangers might look at me, especially on the subway, and wonder, "fat or pregnant?" I've done it myself! I will stand up and offer my seat (most of the time as long as I haven't had a horrible day) to older people (and that…

Why Do Older Children and Teens Lie to Their Parents?

Parents it is very important that you have a continuous relationship with their child as they are growing up so that when your child becomes a teenager, you will know them well enough to determine when they aren’t telling you the truth.  Kids will tell you a story if they think that they can get away with it.…

Maybe 40 Won't Suck After All....

On Monday morning, I awoke to find even bigger bags under my eyes and four new grey hairs at the crown of my head.  I stared at my tired reflection in the mirror and thought, "Wow, is this REALLY what the next decade is gonna look like?"  Here I was all prepared to rock my forties like a champ, but the day sure wasn't getting off to a very good…

The older I get the more I appreciate!

Music and memories…what is your favorite kind?



It is funny how every generation has their own style of music. I remember being young and thinking, “there is not way I am gong to like old people’s music.” Well if the 80′s is considered “old…

Revenge of the MILFs



So MisssyM started it all saying she was a bit tired of the way older women are called MILFs when frankly mostly younger men were not that desirable: frisky, panting, a little lacking in the self control department, and all in all what you'd want in a dog not… Continue

J Myster is Another Month Older...

So yesterday I was going thru J myster's drawers and boxing up his 6-9 and 9-12 month stuff that he has grown out of. We have been lucky to receive most of his cloths from friends. I have boxes of cloths for him up to 4 years old. It is great to have friends who have boys! I did discover we had no size 4 shoes for him and he has pretty much grown out of 3's. Another thing that made me tear up a bit is Sunday J myster turned 20 months!! 20 MONTHS!! How did this happen? How did my baby get so big… Continue

Momnesia a Myth?!?

The British Journal of Psychiatry has published the findings of a new research study from the Australian National University. After studying 1,241 women, scientists concluded that women's memories remained as good during and after pregnancy as before. Prof Helen Christensen who led the study said "women need to be less automatic in their willingness to attribute common memory lapses to a… Continue

Am I a Slacker or Just a "Laid Back" Mommie?

John and Menopause Mommy



I'm one of those moms that opted to have my second baby in my mid-thirties. Since he’s a rambunctious three year old now, you can about guess my age. My first is an intelligent, well-adjusted eighteen

year old enjoying his first year away at college.



I have the best of both worlds.



With my oldest, the pressure is minimal. He’s…

And then what did you think?

Taylor's favorite phrase to say to me, is: "And then what did you think?" Well that, and the phrase: "No Mom, I don't want to do that right now. Here's the plan, I'll do what I want to do first and then I'll do what you want me to do. Okay Mom?"



Which brings me to my first point.



I used to think I was patient until I had kids. But now...



Well, I find it's my struggle every single day. I have to BREATHE. Sometimes very… Continue

Yep, I'm over 40.

I never really thought of being over 40 as an issue.

I've just been doing my thing for the past 20 years and haven't really noticed anything was different.



After college I married and had my career. Then came the kid thing. I gave up my career to be at home with my kids. Yes, I found small part time jobs and other methods of making money. Being home when my kids were home was my personal priority and something I've never regretted, even though I don't have the nicest car or… Continue
