Clean your room. Study. Go to bed. Cut the drama. Hurry up. Why’d you get a C on that test? (I tend to repeat the same phrases when talking to my kids).
However, I’ve discovered that I…Continue
The increasingly harmful sexualized images of young girls can be seen throughout media advertising. Sexualized merchandise is offered to an increasingly younger crop of potential consumers and the consequences of this cannot be ignored. The sexualization of young girls is a social issue that…Continue

Are You Having Fun With Your Teenager? At first glance some of you may think this is a trick question! It isn’t. I ask the question for several reasons.

I know I quickly alluded to the fact that the Binkie Fairy made a stop at our house a couple weeks ago and I feel like I should expound on that statement with some background and an update on how it went. In case you haven't noticed from my many, many photographs, my children love their binkies. We are binkie people. My children are binkie children and they were binkie babies. Jax has been sucking on one since the day he was born. …

Ironflower requested a meal the other day. Lovebug asked for more apple just now. Hugmonkey is actually eating the food he asks for these days. Things are freaking weird around here.
My kids have always been lackluster eaters. Not only are they picky, they just don't eat a lot. Even of their favorite foods. After initial anxiety caused by our former pediatrician (who felt that, despite Ironflower's health, height, head circumference and achieved…

What do your children mean to you? Are they the light of your life and the most amazing gift you have ever been given? Why then are some denied the right to parent children of their own. Did you know that surrogacy is illegal in some states for all couples, or that same sex adoption is banned in many states as well?

When in doubt, or I should say riding some kind of mini-breakdown, I call my semi-alcoholic mother. Over the years I have figured out perfect timing before she goes in for the kill--"utter disappointment" is her nickname for me after say, 5 minutes on the phone. But until that point I find a kind of comfort, the imaginary mommy/cookies kind. Not that she was ever that person.
Despite my 15 years of wanting to live in a lovely white house on the beach, instead I have lived those…

We're in a funky stage right now, by which I mean "a stage which puts me in a funk." The kids are oblivious and happy, but I am less than enamored with their current conditions. Jax has decided that the art of listening is not high on his priority list and has deemed myself, his gymnastics instructor, his music teacher, and any other adult who tries to corral him into a polite or sedentary state as irrelevant. No need to listen to them; they're irrelevant. …
