Garrison Keillor in 1985 created the fictional town of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota. On his radio program A Prairie Home Companionhe will tell you that in his fictional hometown "all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average". Last time I checked I still lived in Florida.
There is actually something called the…

You're at playgroup and your 18 month old walks up to the toddler next to him. With little warning he gives him a good smack right on the forehead. You apologize, slightly awkwardly, for your child, and…Continue

As overly cautious as we are about protecting our children these days, it's a wonder any of us survived our own childhoods of yesteryear. Heck, many of us probably rode home from the hospital on our moms' laps IN THE FRONT SEAT OF THE CAR (without a seat belt, no doubt)!! All this fragility makes me wonder if our kids are missing out on some of the good…Continue

You can never truly understand a person until you have walked a mile in their shoes. I don’t know what it’s like to be adopted, or to be given up at birth, and I don’t know what it’s like to have reactive attachment disorder (RAD).

It's a dirty job, but, unfortunately, somebody's gotta do it. And this weekend? Well, I was the one who got stuck being the bad cop. Cause short people lying straight to my face is just not something that I take too lightly.
It all went down on Sunday, which was an unfortunate flurry of activity around here with the kids coming off the high…Continue
As I have confessed here a number of times, I haven’t always been able to write. Well, I’ve always been able to write, I just didn’t have any confidence in my writing abilities. When I was working in the corporate world, if I was required to write a letter, I would procrastinate for days until I made myself sit down at my computer and write.

I am starting to get a complex.
I think that there must be some sort of write up about me on some sort of babysitter/nanny forum that tells them not to contact me or take care of my children.
What is the deal!!!
I wrote last time about how my husband I haven't been on a date in over two years. Well it is over two years and still counting.... (Read Here)
I have laundry…

Kids sure have a way of (figuratively) punching you right in the gut when you least expect it, don't they? Their unassuming words can wash a blanket of guilt right over you in nothing flat. And before you know it, you're feeling like the suckiest parent in the world and saving your pennies for the future therapy that your kid will inevitably need thanks to…Continue
