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…Continue

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…Continue

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.

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.
If you were to take a step back and look at our family as a business (romantic, I know), you would see that we have an excellent…

I struggle with my mother-daughter relationship. When I first found out I was having a girl, I worried. I'm not a girlie-girl and I don't really know what to do with one of those. Even more so, I had a strained relationship with my own mother for as long as I could remember. Finding out I was having a girl brought back so…

I was sitting working on my blog and registering for sweepstakes one day during my daughter's quiet time. It's time I get to use to be productive or have a break from the insanity. One particular day, just a few days before Christmas, I was thinking of all the presents I still have left to wrap, and then I began to think about our Elf…
As we take time to celebrate and remember the life of a man who forever changed the landscape of America, let's do more than consider it a day off of work and school. Although my children are too young to truly understand the impact of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s work, I am committed to using his powerful…Continue
