Everglades Holiday Park Experience (Home of the Gator Boys!)

I was as excited as my husband and kids, anticipating this trip. When we got to the park, everything went smoothly. We picked up our tickets and went to the covered area waiting for our ticket number to be called for the airboat tour. There were a lot of people there, but the wait for the airboat tour was only about 10 minutes.



I know from seeing…

A Polar Vortex Punch of Reality

Coming back from a family vacation is never a fun thing.  The packing, the travel, the crabby kids -- they all add up to one giant pain in the ass.  It pretty much makes you forget that you were even on vacation at all.  But this recent sucker punch back to reality after our New Year's trip to…

Book Review: The Nameless Prince, by Dominick R. Domingo

The Nameless Prince is a beautifully-crafted debut YA novel about faith, disillusionment and innocence.

Ten-year old Seth Bauman lives in the gang-ravaged streets of Silver Lake. Abandoned by his mother right after his birth, he shares a very dysfunctional and loveless home with his mean Uncle Troy and his uncle’s girlfriend Cheryll. Rather than care for the young…

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…

The Kim K Barbie



I'm a recovering Barbie-addict. I played with them until I was like 16, and I still would if I didn't have all boys. I'm a little burnt out on trucks, pirates and Spiderman, so anytime we're at someone's house and they have little girls, I'll immediately wonder if they have Barbies. I even have a method:



  • I'll make eye contact with the girl. Whether she's across the room or simply in the seat next to me, eye contact will be…

Reality TV Parenting - The One Week Challenge RESULTS

 

So how did you do?



One week ago, I challenged you, along with myself, to see if we could collectively stop the habit of using Reality TV Parenting as a way of spending time with our kids. Borne of my own guilt of using the latest episode of Survivor or anything on The Food…

Reality TV Parenting Redux - The One Week Challenge

I recently and unwittingly hit a parenting nerve.
A post that I wrote a while back entitled "Reality TV: A Parenting Reality" was the most popular and commented-upon piece that I have had to date. Exactly why, who knows, but one can certainly…

Is Reality Television Killing The Traditional Soap Opera?

When As The World Turns was cancelled in 2009 that caught my attention because it was noted as being the longest running soap opera on television. I didn't watch it so I wasn't losing any "connections". However, I was sad for those actors that would be losing their jobs and it's just sad the idea that the longest-running-soap-opera-on-television wasn't needed any more.



Now, with the news of One Life To Live and All My Children being cancelled I'm a bit miffed. AMC was my soap opera.… Continue

The Princess Movement

When I had my first daughter, I vowed to never ever subscribe to the ever popular princess movement!  I have been against it through and through.  The whole princess thing has been a pet peeve of mine. It brings to mind images of obnoxious, entitled, spoiled little girls.



I have to tell you though that I… Continue

Reality returns, and it's making me jittery

I think the last thing to go back into storage was the "Cookies for Santa" plate.

Tomorrow the kids go back to school, and I go back to work. Holidays are over, and reality returns. I'm not sure I'm ready. In fact, I have that unsettled, nervous feeling in my stomach - the one I used to get on Sunday nights when I knew I had a test Monday morning.

I don't have any exams tomorrow. I guess handling the morning routine will be a test in itself - seeing if I can get two sleepy kids…

Five things I learned watching reality shows

I have a confession to make: my name is Teri and I love reality shows!



Now, not every show is my cup of tea, but several have me by the remote control.



One is the Real Housewives series on Bravo. I am intrigued by different

cultures of women as well as the variations from coast to coast. Oh

yeah, I like the clothes too.



The wannabe sociologist in me is fascinated by people's behavior,

motives and… Continue

Unrealistic Reality TV

The obsession with my newly found identity crisis led me to believe that the labels put on SAHM’s strictly came from the 50’s and 60’s Susie Homemaker persona; however, the eruption of shows like The Real Housewives of… (pick a city, any city) has 21st century housewifery represented as gossiping cats with faux fur who claw at each other at social events. This new 21st century housewife has no responsibilities except to keep a high social standing and…

Mothers; No matter how old our children may get, they will always be our "babies'

Today, I had an amazing realization. I used to hate when my Mom or my Mother in Law would call and ask all kinds of questions, or try to tell

us what to do, how we should be behaving or spending ( rather saving)

our money. It used to drive me crazy, back when I was in my 20's,

before I had my own little precious gems.And now I know, now I

understand fully...Now, I also realize I will be 10 times worse! We…

Celebrate Martin Luther King and Butterfly, Born January 15th!

January 15th is synonymous with two things: the birth of the great Martin Luther King and the birth of MyWorkButterfly.com. Exactly one year ago on January 15th, 2009, Terry and I stood proudly in the home of Malaak and Chris Rock, who embrace Butterfly's mission, and stated the following in front of Butterfly's amazingly talented contributors, family and dear friends. Here is what we said:

The Fate of Child Reality Show Stars and Their Misguided Parents

I know I may be alone on this but is anyone else fed up with and disgusted by reality shows?? I feel like if I watch a show of a family exposing themselves to the world, I am contributing to the downfall of the children. Are all of those kids destined to the scary child star fate that has destroyed the lives of so many young and famous?
