Kids, NO Means NO…or Does It?

no-68481_640

How many times have you said “NO” to your kids, yet they still keep on asking? Ummm…how about every second of every hour of every day.  Yah…in my house too!  If your answer is never, I don’t believe you!

Does this scenario sound familiar?

“Mommy can we have ice…

Going from DINKs to parents

Dual-Income, No Kids.



That's what my husband and I were for a very long time. We spent years together working, traveling, figuring out who was the better chef (me), who was handier around the house (him) and having long discussions about the type of family we wanted to have one day. I had been with my…

Sticky Shapes & Colors

I have a confession.

I get that same fluttery feeling from appliance stores that most women get from Target. I browse countertop samples, light fixtures, closet systems, and cabinets for hours. I look at molding and backsplashes and flowers. Then, right before I leave I visit  my most favorite section- the paint samples....and I collect about 100 paint chips. (I'm not even going to tell you how long those will stay in my the…

The worst parenting advice I ever heard

When you are pregnant, you become a magnate for unsolicited parenting advice. (This is one of those laws of nature like gravity or the inverse velocity equation of children and is unavoidable.)…

MJ didn't get it either...What the heck is a meme?

Who you trying to school, fool?

That should have been Michael Jordan's response to the kid who tried to make MJ look like a fool.

Yes, even the great MJ got hit with the latest viral internet tsunami.

Memes.

I can hear you now, how the heck do…

Reviving the art of Appreciation

Kids become not what we want them to but what we are to them. It won't be wrong to say that kids in most cases are just the mirror image of their parents. From the time they are born till the age of six, they have a great sense of observation and their ability to imitate helps them learn and adapt to the world.…

Applebee's After Dark and other musings of a tween

Booze, chicks at the bar, lewd behavior, all on a Saturday evening and...

at the local Applebee's.

Ok, so, maybe there wasn't booze, chicks at the bar, or lewd behavior. This was the behavior my 9 year old daughter, Flower, "saw", what she cooked up in her head and swore off ever eating at an Applebee's again.

Let me explain.

Saturday is our day to eat out for dinner. The Hubs recommended Applebee's because he wanted to use a gift…

Why I created a Lady Lair and you should too

Nobody backs baby into a…closet? For all you youngins, go watch Dirty Dancing to partially get that reference.

Dear Facebook friends: Is blue poop normal?

There is a moment in most modern parents' lives, when you will find that your parenting instincts fail you. It's not a happy moment and you certainly aren't ready for it, but there it is.…

The Importance of Kindness to Yourself

According to our school calendar, we are solidly over the half-way mark for summer and this week, I started to feel the effects of trying to work from home while my kids are all basically home (with the exception of a few camps). I was mindful not to place too many expectations and items on my work To…

Families and Fighting…Is It All Bad?

stop fighting My husband and I recently got into an argument and while of course I was right, as usual, I could not just walk away.  I knew that my kids were watching but I needed to express how I was feeling at that moment and don’t regret it.

Aren’t we supposed to save our arguments when…

A Screen Time Battle With a Good Outcome

We were leaving for church last Sunday, and my 8 year old was playing on his iPod. This is not an unusual occurrence and my son is usually the first one ready each day when we need to leave so it is rarely an issue. But as is usual in the summer, our routine has gotten a bit lax, and he has had a…

How To Stop Tattling

I adore my children but having all 4 of them home all summer can get a little crazy!  Plus my husband working in real estate has a pretty hectic and inconsistent schedule.  So it's a lot of mommy versus the 4 little monkeys.  One things that really makes me want to climb the walls is the amount of tattling.  Yes, I know for children (siblings at that) under 7 years old this is very common but it doesn't make it any less…
