Just Hang On.

It's safe to say that becoming a parent changes things; specifically a marriage. Nine years together, four years married, and two kids later. We argue more than we should, about things that we shouldn't. We go to bed angry at times. A whole day can pass without kissing or hugging. And somehow, we don't have a real conversation for days. But, in the midst of the overflowing laundry, the oatmeal stained faces, the abundance of toys, and the daily tantrums--I still see you & I need you to…

A Lesson In Responsibility

Growing up my mother kept a clean and tidy home. She taught all five of us kids the importance of taking care of our things and the home. As an adult I get anxious at the site of… Continue

The Rewards of Parenting.

Ever since March 30, 2013 at 12:56pm, our world completely changed. Ella, our first child, had entered the world and has been our little firecracker ever since. I remember having such a hard time in those first few weeks home from the hospital. One of the recurring questions in my mind, and often whispered out loud to myself was, "what the hell did I get myself into, how am I gonna do this??" I thought I was prepared. I truly believed that besides the typical sleepless nights that came with…

Well my first reaction literally came out  as a shock.. like Why ?? with a big question mark.but as we spoke further.. I kind of came to terms with the fact that it is an option…

Taking Care of You.

A trip to the gym in well over a year. A stop at Dunkin' for my iced coffee (duh!) A hop, skip, and a jump right into the pedicure chair. Eating out to lunch while the food is still hot. And lastly, a relaxing trip wandering the aisles of Target (skip the last part of the sentence hubby)...and spending money. What is all this, you ask? This is a morning filled with ME. Alone. No kids. And it was glorious.…

Kids, NO Means NO…or Does It?


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.


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.…

Putting the landing gear on helicopter parents

Are you a cheerleader or a coach?

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.…
