Working Has Made Me a Better Mom

A little over a year ago I took the leap and went back into the workforce.

For seven years prior to that I was an English Professor. I spent the last 3 years teaching online only so I worked at home. Now I work outside the home and I LOVE my job.

I was worried about the effect it would have on my kids though. Big Brother was halfway through kindergarden and Little Brother had always been at home with me.

What I found is that my kids like school, most of the time. They…

On The Outskirts of the Playground -- A Mother is Only Ever as Happy as her Unhappiest Child

Things I Learned on our Family Vacation

I normally do these "reflective" kind of posts on Fridays, but I was just too swept up in Paradise last week to sit down and really use my brain for anything productive.  But now that I've been sucker-punched by reality once again, I decided to look back on the finer things I discovered on our family vacation....

** Every day should end in a…

Little Miss Perfect

I have a sensitive child.  She is beautiful, considerate, intelligent, exceptionally well mannered, and very, very sensitive.

Her sensitivity is one of the things I admire about her the most, and one of the greatest challenges in parenting her.  Besides being the What If Child, she worries mostly about being perfect.  She wants to have the best grades in the…

To Be Or Not To Be A...Rock Star!

“I’ve decided I want to be a Rock Star when I grow up,” Izzy said to me.  "Really?  Seriously?  A Rock Star?  Of all the things you can pick from...that’s what you want to be?  But you’re so smart and talented in so many other things."  I don’t actually say this to her even though I really wanted to.  Oh, the joys of being a parent.  What to say?  What to do?  Alas, I say nothing.  Because the truth is, as much as I don’t want her to be a Rock Star, I also would never want to stop her from…

iPhone Overload

My kids are driving me absolutely CUCKOO-KACHOO with all the friggin' apps they continue to want for the iPhone.  Every day it's something new.  My damn phone now has over 8,764 different games on it!  WTF?!  Ok, so maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but I seriously can't find any of the things that I need on it anymore cause it's so overcrowded with kid…

Moment by Moment

What follows is some serious soul-searching interspersed with cute pictures of my kids. Bear with me.



I feel ashamed to admit how often I lose my cool around my children.  In all honesty, not losing my cool at least once during the day is a rare exception. Not only do these kids know a great deal about how to push my buttons, but they are also extremely irrational. The combo of the two is a sure fire way to bring out what I call "Mean Mommy."…

A Peaceful Equation

Bedtime with my twinks continues to reach an all-time low around here.  Every flippin' night I threaten to sell 'em off in a 2-for-1 special at a garage sale.  Cause seriously, why did I have to be the one to give birth to the sleepless wonder twins?  I say it's high time I open up a can of 'Serious As A Heart Attack' and take back my nightly mother effin' me-time.  So, here's the equation that I hereby propose:…

Asparagus is not "yucky"

I was in the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and I over heard a conversation between a mother and her (maybe) 5 year old son.  They were standing next to a large display of asparagus in the middle of the produce section.  Here's what I heard:



Boy: Mom, what's that?

Mom: It's Asparagus.

Boy: Can we get some?

Mom: No, Asparagus is yucky.



This small interchange really stuck in my craw.  It took all my will power to keep myself from rushing the asparagus…

College Planning- The Prerequisite Course

Every job has its parts that we could live without.  For me, there is a significantly large part of my job that I am not a fan of. I mean, I really, really don’t care for it. College counseling.  Its not for me and is by far, my biggest pet peeve.  Which is unfortunate, because it takes up a large chunk of my time I feel would be better spent doing other things.

Let me begin with an…

The Sex Talk

I will never forget being in elementary school and my mother sitting me down to have the dreaded sex talk.  I can still see her sitting in the brown chair of our living room and hear her speak those disturbing, scary words, like penis, vagina and babies coming out of it. Oh. My. God.  Is she really saying these things?  Make it stop, God, please, make it stop, I remember thinking.…

Things I've Learned This Week

** If I ever turn up missing, a vineyard in Sonoma is most likely where you'll find me.

** Entirely too many people think they have the right of way.

** Elementary School Open House could also be referred to as Nuts on a Stick. …

Q&A Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

QUESTION

I have a very imaginative 8 year old boy who lies all the time. Sometimes it’s to get himself out of trouble, sometimes it’s just to add to the conversation as an “expert”.  How do I channel his imagination and need to be part of discussions in a positive way?

MY PERSPECTIVE

Imagination or no imagination, everyone lies at some point and the reasons for doing so are consistent.  Either we are trying to protect…

When The Time Is Right

There is one thing that someone can say to me that annoys me more than anything else. Usually because of the type of questions that I ask in order to recieve this particular response, it will be coming from my partner. This then usually results in me wanting to scream with frustration as I picture bashing him round the head with a saucepan or other heavy object. What reply am I talking about? ..."When the time is right".



In our five years together, I've heard this MANY times from…
