People are working almost 24 x 7 these days. I have a lot of friends who work in corporate world and here is a short story on one of them:
A friend of mine had a very lucrative sales job and her team was based out of China and U.S.A. When I used to ask her about how that worked out, she told me that she would work with her team in the U.S.A. during the morning hours and then come back home, feed her kids, make them do their homework, put them to sleep and would be on calls with her…Continue

My son loves my office. On the few occasions I've taken him to visit, he received lots of attention from my coworkers, treats, hot chocolate and got to play with the stuff at everyone's desk. He calls my coworkers "his coworkers" and requests to talk to them on the phone sometimes.…Continue

Parents love their children from the time they are conceived. Anything that causes a child pain, causes them pain. Unfortunately, bullying across schools has increased and has taken a new form – cyberbullying. Here are some recent statistics on bullying from bullyingstatistics.org:

I am a fast eater. Probably too fast. Most days it takes me longer to prepare a meal than it does for me to eat it. This comes in handy for all those times I eat lunch at my desk (especially since I don't seem to suffer from heartburn), but it is definitely not something I want my son to inherit.…

Most nights, when I get home from work, I immediately start cooking dinner. The first hour after I get home is a bit of a blur: There is food to prepare, people to greet and those morning chores to complete (if I didn't finish them earlier). If I can get dinner on the table by 6:45, then it is a really good day.…Continue

I've spent most of my Mommyhood as a working Mom. I know the pain of leaving your baby with virtual strangers at a daycare, the difficulties in working from home with a sick child and letting go of your work self to…Continue

My left eye is twitching.
I didn't think that I was stressed out (because, I'm not busy anymore or anything), but my eye is twitching and that is a sure sign from my body that I am stressed. It happens whenever I have too much going on, or too much stuff on my to-do list.…Continue

** The end-of-the-school-year craziness must surely subtract five years off a mom's life.
** I am sooooooooo done with the packing of the lunches.

There is a parody tea mug on my desk that says: Keep Calm and Call Mom. And there is a lot of truth to that.Continue
Ever have one of those days where every-freaking-thing seems to go wrong? And no matter what you try to do, it all just turns to crap? (If you haven't, then it's safe to say that I kinda hate you, but I digress....) Well, yesterday was one of THOSE kind of days, where if I would have looked up, I…

Remember playing car-racing games at the arcade, trying to stay on the virtual road while going as fast as you can? In those videos, sharp curves keep switching and obstacles suddenly appear, causing you to crash and burn if your reactions aren’t fast enough.
It may be fun to play a game, but what about when life itself mirrors this wild ride? Whether you're actually on a…Continue

We all know it’s really difficult for moms to find precious and much needed “Me-Time” for themselves. Is that you? Do you rarely take a few moments from your busy schedule to kick back, put your feet up, and simply exhale to help relieve the stress? Little breaks are probably an afterthought,…Continue
In my house, the poop and the fan need no introduction. They are quite familiar with each other, especially when my husband is out of town. Because that's precisely the time that things tend to go very wrong. And usually, it's right at bedtime -- you know, when I've had just about all the fun I can take for one…Continue
I have been blogging since 2008 and yes, there have been periods of time when I think my words are pretty much spent. 'I've talked about this before' or 'No one's commenting so is anyone even reading my words?' or, a thought that happens more often than not, 'I re-e-e-ally want to write out this experience but if the people I'm writing about read this I would be mortified. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings'. These thoughts, and some others, have held me in what I thought was a blog…Continue

** Shamrock Shakes are 600+ calories of awesomeness.
** "Quiet" is most definitely NOT a word I'd use to describe my house.
** My son has apparently given up sleep for Lent. Lucky me.
** Sometimes when people say they don't need help, it's cause they're too overwhelmed to see that they do.
** Kids' ear…Continue
