NO KIDS, NO CLUE!

Why you shouldn’t be upset when people who don’t have kids criticize the way you parent.

Before becoming a mom, I was one of those people that would shake my head in disapproval when I saw a temper tantrum in a restaurant. I would dish out advice about how to discipline a child…

Dear Relatives, Here's Why You Can't Give My Kid Cake

Dear well-meaning, loving, kind people who offer my daughter sweets,

I would love to give my daughter cake just as much as you would. I would love to give her cheese cake on my birthday. I would love to give her more than one tiny bite of one little Swedish fish for Valentine’s Day. I want to say yes to her, and I want to say yes to you when you offer to give her a bite…

Parenthood: Push or Pull?

Parenthood is an aberration of insanity. In a sense, it's its own mental affliction or state of mind. It's like living with a never-ending battle between push & pull within your brain. Being faced with new challenges in every waking moment, it's like running stuck in overdrive, turning the brain into a computerized robot of sorts. Input challenge, output choice of push or a pull. Yet, as with all computers there's always the occasional viruses, glitches, & freezes. Some parents have way… Continue

Hard Conversations: Discussing Death with a Child

Every once in awhile something happens with us, and I’m torn about writing it. As a blogger, I don’t want my blog to necessarily come off as doom and gloom, but these things do come up. So bear with me as I get this off my chest. Perhaps it will help another parent out there.

Sunday night, Alex asked if I would snuggle with him in bed. I said fine, as the boys had Monday off from school. I’m not as strict about sleep on…

February Parenting Tip: Staying Sane at the Supermarket (with kids):

We all know errands are best done sans kids.  Everything is faster, less hectic and we can actually concentrate on the task at hand instead of praying that no one has a meltdown in public.

A Conscious Approach to Youth Sports

soccer

This was a weekend full of sports in my family. My 12 year old had a basketball game and my 7 year old had a soccer game and swim meet. As Rachel Macy Stafford says, I love to watch my children play. I have grown so much from the days when my 12 year old was just getting into sports - when my ego came roaring out to the field, the court, the pool - and I wanted him to excel at all costs. Regardless of his reasons for joining a team or for playing a sport (uh, maybe because…

NIP SIBLING RIVALRY IN THE BUD!

I am a very recent mom to two beautiful daughters. When I conceived my second child, I started to feel anxious and worried about how my older daughter would treat her younger sibling.

My second baby came into this world last year and it’s safe to say that even though there was a little bit of jealousy, my older daughter took on really well to her younger sister. So much so that she is very protective of her sister. Being a mental health professional helped me through this…

24 Hours of Thoughts from a Mom:

I don’t know about you, but I have a constant string of random thoughts running through my brain at all times.  Sometimes I wish there was a mute button for all my opinions, impressions, ideas, conclusions, judgments, feelings and theories, but…there’s not.  Before my brain explodes, I “thought” I would share with all of…

How to Prevent Child Skin Rash

I have changed a few diapers and it doesn't look like I'll be in the clear for quite a long time. My kids have outgrown them, but besides being a nanny for many years prior to having them, I am the assistant director of early childhood for a large children's program for infant through pre-schoolers, so still around babies and toddlers daily.



Yes, I've wiped a good share of bums and am proud of it!…

Perfect Date?!

A perfect date...oh my word.

Sounds like a lot of pressure, honestly.

I've come to realize that perfection is an impossible standard for this mere mortal. I actually attempted a romantic getaway with Wolf, the hubby last month.

It didn't go well. If you want all the gory (albeit funny) details, including stockings becoming slouch socks, you can read it here.

Anyways.

So,…

The family business

My husband wears a lot of different titles: He is the love of my life, a dynamic dad for our son and my best friend. I also like to think of him as my business partner.
