Nice is not a four-letter word

In a former job, I used to have a mean boss. The kind of boss who would tear you down in public, make you feel worthless and mock you if you went to your car during lunch to have a little cry. My coworkers and I became adept at figuring out her triggers and avoiding them wherever possible. Some days we spent more time at work analyzing how she would react to something than doing our jobs. That was the least productive I've ever…

Thinking outside the lunch box

My son is in Kindergarten, and he is excited. He is excited about all the new classrooms, books, children and fun to be had. But he is more excited about one particular part of Kindergarten, more than anything else: He can bring a lunch from home.



Up until this point, he has eaten the provided lunches at his…

Back to School Organization

Back to #School #Organization from @MomTattles #B2S #DIY Monday morning, my Facebook feed was filled with proud parents as their children started their first day of school. By 2pm, those enthusiastic statuses looked a little uglier, grimmer, and much more stress filled. A new school year involves lots of moving parts, but what are some of the ways you and your family can make back-to-school an organized…

Why are we all scared of math?

Full disclosure: Math was not my favorite subject in school. But even though I didn't care for math, I still made really great grades in it.



To me, math was too finite. If I was writing an essay, I could write my way out of a corner. With math, you were either right or wrong with your answers. And my…

Back to school means it's time to stress out over homework

In my little corner of the world, school starts next week. And all around me I hear the moms talking about various after school programs and which ones they are avoiding because they don't encourage children to complete their homework first.



And I can hear that they are already stressed out over their…

Back to School with a tween...Oh My! helping your tween coordinate outfits

"You wanna wear that?!?!?"

This was the response I silently whispered to myself when my tween, Flower, walked into the room one day wearing an outfit she had picked out.

Oh lawd, I knew this day would come sooner than later. After all, at the time, she was around 7 years old.…

Are parents pushing their kids for good?

Life is a series of challenges filled with surprises.. And that's what makes life interesting. One of the biggest challenges could also be bringing up our children who are closest to our hearts and means the world to us... It can be an out of the world experience for many whereas many would have their world upside down with lack of patience n perseverance ....…

Schooled Too Fast

Each morning, Stephen, my baby, asks me if he has to go to school.  "Third grade is boring. We don't even do anything. We don't have enough recess. School is for attendance."  Oh, baby... you don't know boring yet, I remind.  Get dressed.  Did you eat? Get your backpack.  Do…

The case for more home economics classes

Like many people, once I established my own home away from my parents and started my own job, I started to think about how my education had failed me. Yes, I had many years of dedicated schooling around math and science and communications, but some basics alluded me. I knew how to cook, for example, (thanks, Mom!), but I didn't know how to use a drill (I should have taken shop class). I could balance my checkbook, but didn't have the…

Expecting your children to make the grade

As mentioned before in this blog, my Mom told me that my job was to be a good student. She expected me to make excellent grades, and she was clear on her expectations. (Not Tiger Mother level of expectations, but her point was clear.) She told me I was smart; I believed her; I did well in school.…

What are your demands?

As a young teen, I once asked my Mom if I could get an after-school job. Her reply was: "Your job is to be a good student." So I tried my best to do a good job and balance my school work with all the other chores I did around the house.…

The questions around homework

I have some memories of doing my homework when I was little: The phonics workbooks at the small table in the kitchen while my mother cooked; math homework with a friend where we didn't understand what we were doing and later found out we did the homework completely wrong; studying spelling words alone at my desk in my bedroom (that last one never worked out for me).…

Mom brings home the bacon. (And the milk.)

My son was six weeks old when I returned to work. And I had the same thought every day when I dropped him off at day care:

This is crazy. Why am I working? I should be staying home with him. I mean, my salary covers our healthcare and the cost of his school and some other bills, but I think we could live without it.…
