The Truth About...My Life

The Truth About...My Life

Have you ever watched Wife Swap? Or Trading Spouses? I'll admit first hand that I am addicted to these shows, no matter how trashy or ridiculous they may be. Most of the time, it makes me feel much better about how our little family runs things. It's also interesting to see all the…

If You're A Mom Who Loves Red Wine, This Is For YOU!

Let's face facts. Kids make a freaking mess. How many times have I had my little ones eat in their underwear so they don't destroy their outfits? Whoa, too many times to count. You'd THINK they would eat over the table...I only scream out the request about fifty times a day!

But, fortunately for me and my obsessive-compulsive tendencies, a fabulous new product innovation was recently funded on Kickstarter and it promises to allay my concerns…

To My Sons: Don't Marry a Girl Who Won't Give You Her Last Chip

Dear Kaleb and Kaden,

By the time you are able to read this letter you will probably wonder just what in the world I was talking about.  Well, from the time  your first set of teeth cut your gums and grew, you two love food...especially SNACKS.  Any snacks your father and I had, both of you were front and center with big eyes and smiles repeatedly saying "please.. please...chips please...chips please".  Well at least you two had manners at an early age.  With manners like that, who…

Uh, You Weren't Planned

You know that Nana is very funny.  We all laugh at the stories she tells of mommy and uncle growing up and all of the funny and wonderfully weird things that we did growing up.  Now they aren’t as funny as the two of you, but maybe that’s because I’m partial to you two…then again, you two are quite the characters.  Your father and I can’t help but smile and laugh when we think of the things that you do or say, and not to mention the things that you do to each other.  It’s sheer…

Tips for equality in parenting

Describe the workload involved in being a parent. Are you listing out the physical tasks you help your child with (getting dressed, brushing teeth, reading bedtime stories)? Or are you thinking about the mental workout (worrying about them when they are away at camp, remembering their measurements, sizes and all their friend's names) as well? Did you remember to list all those ancillary chores that keep the household running smoothly…

Creative Ways to Teach Your Kids How to Say No to Drugs

The teen years can be a time of great anxiety for parents. Just as your child is really beginning to assert their own independence and starting to test boundaries, the very real concern all parents feel about raising teenagers begin to loom ominously – grades, sex, peer pressure, and possibly most frightening of all, the perils of illegal drug use and addiction.

Alarming statistics

Giving your guy a break

My husband is a good family man. He takes excellent care of me and our son, and he participates in lots of family activities with us - even when they are no fun for adults. He is the kindest and best of men.



But I also understand that he needs breaks. Several times a year, he takes a motorcycle trip and…

My child is really special (to me)

My son is building a pirate ship behind me right now. Along with the construction work to create the perfect pirate vessel, he is telling me about the various adventures we are going to have once on board. There will be buried treasure, sword fighting and a daring rescue of trapped monkeys. Listening to the way his mind works is a privilege for me. In short, my son is one of the most amazing people I've ever met.…
