Parents just don't understand

On days of high stress at my office, my coworkers and I will message one another with phrases we've picked up from the younger members of our team:

This meeting: I can't even.


I literally can't with this person right…

Rock, Paper, Scissor Parenting


Ok, yeah, I'll admit that my husband and I may have rock, paper, scissored our way through some of more undesirable aspects of parenting our twins.  (I'm pretty sure we're not the only ones who do this either.)  Because, sometimes, it just doesn't really make sense for BOTH of us to jump into a crappy situation.  For…

Almost Legal

Almost Legal

I knew it was coming up but I guess I just put it out of my mind. Did not want to face it. My oldest is turning 18 in two months. 60ish days that I still have any real legal say, at least in his mind and the governments, in what he does, says, doesn't do, etc. Of course I still say things that I swore…

"40" – it’s the new 16

Please believe the hype – forty truly is fabulous. I can’t say what it is like for all forty years old women. But for me (and most of my friends) - It’s an age where my children are out of the baby stage, my career is getting into a grove, my marriage is fun and comfortable. I have made peace with my stretch marks and I have finally forgiven my children for my saggy boobs. In fact, now that I have a great bra - I have really have started to appreciate my body.

Basically life is pretty…

Help! My Teenager was Caught Stealing. How Should I Handle the Situation?

Most teenagers enjoy hanging out at the mall for several hours on the weekends so that they can spend time with their friends and window shop, unless they have money to spend.  In fact, I remember doing this when I was a teenager, I enjoyed roaming around the mall and catching up with my friends.  Most…

Things I've Learned This Week

** Girls and drama go together like humidity and swass.

** Try as I may, I just don't have the moves like Jagger.

** It's best to look at the toilet seat before sitting down, at least in my house anyway.

** Clearly, my kids wait till I've just changed their sheets to pee the bed.

** Drinking cheap wine after having…

Love From Ashes

I peeked in on my son sleeping this morning, and was aghast at how tall he actually looked lying in bed. He is twelve years old, on the brink of his journey through Junior High, and I can hardly believe how much he's grown. I looked at his feet (now bigger than mine), and his hands (almost bigger than mine), and…

Mother And Son: breaking away and moving on

My son has a job as a lifeguard this summer, and today I drive him to work. Though he now has his driver’s license, he does not yet have his own car and so for the time being, we must share mine and he is being a good sport about it. I drive slowly; neither of us has an agenda and there are no external distractions. We are simply mother and son, each fully present, as we so often were when he was young; before I became preoccupied with the passing of time and midlife reinvention, and before…

Tame the Beast.

manipulate - vb: to negotiate, control or influence (something or someone) cleverly, skillfully, or deviously.

My kids are masters at building manipulation tactics that work brilliantly when dealing with me. As many of you know, I have the man-boy, who is turning 18 in a few weeks, and the baby girl, who is a three-year-old toddler… Continue

Back to School - BillMyParents Smart Spend Card

Finally a spend-smart credit card for teenagers! When my son was 16 years old, he had an opportunity to go England and train with the coach of the Manchester United soccer team. Chase (my son, not the bank) had a bank account but due to under-18 age status, he was restricted with his ATM debit-only card which he could not use as a credit card. So, we nervously gave him cash to take with him. I bought several travel type garments (socks, money belts) in which he could hide the money. Not a great… Continue

Make Money as a Teenager

My oldest son has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, and he’s always had a desire to make money ever since his first lemonade stand at age 8! Unfortunately, it’s impossible to find a part time job when…
