Being a Mean Mom isn’t Easy

 

imagesCA5I832U

If any of you happened to see my Facebook status on Monday you know that I faced a motherhood dilemma.

Scenario; I had asked our kindergartener ½ a dozen times if he placed his lunch in his backpack and to which he replied, yes, each time. So, I drop the kiddos off at school. I get home and go to the fridge to get our 3-year-old a snack and guess what I see in the fridge? His lunch!! Mind you, I asked him like ½…

9 Ways Raising Babies Is Like Raving, Baby

So Ibiza has been in the news this week as a number of b-list celebrities jet out for some richly deserved look at me-time.

After I’d got over the envy of the perfect tans (I may be catching the sun on maternity leave, but my bright-white-foot-wide-nursing-bra-strap-marks make my arms look like they’ve been designated laybys by the Highways Agency), I was also forced to face the realisation that now I’m a mum I WILL NEVER GO RAVING AGAIN.

It doesn’t matter that the last…

Been a While... Let's Catch Up.

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/07/been-a-while/

I’m alive.  and large.  and Pregnant.  Still.  I haven’t wrote in my blog recently because honestly, by the end of the night (my blogging/writing time) I’m spent and my brain stops functioning.  Literally.  It stops.  I’ve been a busy little bee around our nest though!  Some days I ‘forget’ that I have an extra X lbs attached to my…

Our Life with Boys... through my iPhone

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/09/life-through-my-iphone/

There has never been a dull moment in raising our 2 boys.  Never.  Each day, each week, each month, each year has been such an awesome adventure and has opened my eyes to a whole new world.  My way of thinking  has changed, the way I view the world around me is different, our way of playing, how we talk… It’s always been…

The Mid-Parenting Crisis

I'm brainstorming here. I'd like this to be well thought out resonating post of parenting rationalization but the truth is that I'm sitting at my desk shocked by interactions that have taken place between myself and my teenage daughter in the past week, things that have come out of nowhere.

I know that over the past year I've come to a sort of mid-life-crisis in parenting similar to that of the 40 year old man that is mid-life minus the new Porsche and Viagra. My daughter is turning…

One For My Mother

I am not even sure what started the screaming match between my daughter and I, but all of a sudden our family dinner turned to tears and snot, grounding and a bunch of things being said – I don't know how it gets so out of control so quickly. She's so sweet and little until she decides she's grown.

I don't understand how you can clearly hatefully disrespect someone and then be like “I didn't do anything wrong” - so while we were sitting there playing the blame game it occurred to me…

Parenting Doesn't Always Feel Good...

Both my girls have their fair share of anxiety - I can be credited for passing that down to them, I guess. Neither one is worse than the other, and while their anxieties are similar, they're also pretty different and have to be handled differently.

Brooke is indecisive and has separational anxiety - she wants to spend the night with a friend, but then calls me at 10:30 not able to sleep, she invites friends over but decides later that she wishes they would leave. She wants to go to…

Steps to Deal with Bullying

 

By Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.

 

Remember what it was like to be in school, afraid of the big bully in the neighborhood? The documentary Bully reignited the national dialogue about this challenge for kids, following several students and their families over the course of one school year.

Maria's Random Rants - The Problem With Desire

It’s a hard thing to want something, and I mean really want something, with all of your heart, and every bit of your being. So much so you can barely contain the elation in your voice when you talk about it, nor the flutter in your belly attesting to both extremes of excitement and apprehension. You find yourself struggling to keep the knot in your throat from rising just thinking about it, dreaming on it.



Yup, desire can do that to you.



Twenty years  of…
