Learn A Few Thoughts About Coping With Your Mommy Stress

"Mommy stress" might not be a term you hear before you wind up being a stressed-out mom yourself. It might feel impossible to prepare all the meals, be a perfect partner and mother, keep your house clean, and meet all your social obligations each and every day. Feeling like you're lacking in achievement contributes to your feelings of mommy stress. Will it really matter how well you entertained your little ones, folded the laundry, or changed diapers? You're staring all that down the next…

Taking classes on happiness

Above my desk is a sign that reads "choose happy." My son asked me why I decided to put it there.



"It is in a place where I can see it often and be reminded by it," I said.…

The pressures of being perfect

My son likes to talk through his reading homework with me. Each week he has to choose a book, choose four questions from a list and answer questions about the book. (It used to be way more involved than that, but I think there were parental complaints, so the teacher scaled it back a little.) As an adult, I fully understand what the homework is…

Not in the mood to cook

Think about one of those bad days at work. The kind of day in which nothing went right. Let's say you got stuck with some work you didn't want to do, had to smile through some negative comments from customers, figured out a way to stay out of your boss's cross hairs, got some moody text messages from a spouse and a friend, and then you had to fight through traffic the whole way home only to be reminded when you got there that you have to…

I'm Done with Thrift Stores

Deep Cover

It's been a while since I've hit the publish button on this website. I've been knee-deep in teacher-related stuff, chest-deep in master's coursework, and up to my ears in family life, as usual. I'm treading water, but the good news is...I just saved a bundle of money at GEICO! Sorry,…

Sending the kids to Grandma's house

My wonderful Mother recently took my son for the day. When I picked him up, he was very upset that he had to leave. Over the next few days, a series of stories about what they did in that one day together came out (played werewolf, had a pillow fight, played a concert on a keyboard, took care of the cats, checked out my Step-Dad's camera collection). The amount of stuff they did in that one day is almost staggering and I now understand…

When a Mom is "Alone" with her Thoughts -- Video

Once upon a time, a mom was alone with her thoughts... We all know that's a fairy tale.

There's a running monologue in my head 24/7, that is often both nonsensical and disorganized. If I were an internet browser, I'd have too many tabs open at once and quite a few webpages would be crashing.

No matter how many lists, apps, and calendars I have,  it's hard to keep track. Life stuff. Work stuff. Kid stuff. Love stuff. Health stuff. Home stuff. And how to prioritize which…

Children on planes

I was flying to San Francisco and had an aisle seat. Next to me (in the middle seat) was a little boy of 6-years-old. The man next to him at the window seat wasn't his dad.…

That might not be teenage angst

Take a walk through memory lane with me back to your teenage years. (Sorry, this may be a bumpy ride.) Were they mostly happy? Did you feel misunderstood? Did you feel stressed out? Did you ever feel depressed?…

How many times will you cook this weekend?

I feel like I spend a lot of time in the kitchen on the weekends. This is probably because I cook several more meals on weekends than during weekdays: While I regularly make my and my son's lunches in the mornings, breakfast is provided at his school.…

Thinking about ways to improve

At least once a week I have an argument with my son over homework. I fully understand his position: He doesn't want to do it. I am not sure that he understands my position, however: Homework is a part of school; it is a way to show comprehension of materials learned during the week. I am just trying to read him his spelling words.…

The best place to stay

I recently had a very unique situation in my life: My husband and son were gone for the weekend (a camping trip for cub scouts), and I would be alone. This situation - as most Moms will attest - is rare. It is very rare to have the house to yourself for an entire weekend.…

Where to save money on your vacation

I had an amazing time with my family on vacation last week: We had periods of adventurous fun and some downtime to just read and relax. It was a mix of everything to appeal to everyone. Some of our time was spent on paid excursions, and I didn't wonder at any point if they were worth the money: They were all super fun and I loved doing them.…

Another reason why I miss our cats

I really, really miss our cats. They have both moved on from us, and I still find myself missing their presence in our lives. I know my son misses them (well, the one he can remember), as he occasionally sings me a song about her and how sweet she was.…

Alert: Your child missed an assignment today

I know what my son's homework is: I know about the spelling assignments and the online math homework and the reading comprehension sheets and all the additional projects. I know all of this, of course, because my son's teacher sends notes - both physical and over email - on a very regular basis.…

Four Reasons Why Mothers Need a Life Coach

Most moms will agree that mothering is a full-time job. There is always something to do and your hours are not restricted to eight hours a day.
