The Toddler Years Revisited – Only Now She Has Her Driver’s License

“Letting go doesn't mean we don't care.  Letting go doesn't mean we shut down. Letting go means we stop trying to force outcomes and make people behave. It means we give up resistance to the way things are, for the moment. It means we stop trying to do the impossible--controlling that which we cannot--and instead, focus on what is possible--which usually means taking care of ourselves.  And we do this in gentleness, kindness,
and love, as much as possible.” Melody Beattie, author and…

Maybe My Parents Knew What They Were Doing

Remember when you were growing up and you said you'd never ever do to your own children the things your parents did to you?  Perhaps it was a vow you made to yourself in the midst of snot and tears as you slammed the door of your room so hard that it nearly shattered the windows?  Well, my sixteen-year-old self would probably punch me in the face for doing so, but here's me admitting…

The Evolution of Sleep Deprivation

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the dreadful toll motherhood has taken on my sleeping patterns.  Little by little, I'm starting to realize that this sleep deprivation shit is just a never-ending, vicious cycle that nobody ever REALLY tells you about.  Evidently, it never really goes away but just presents itself in different forms along the way, starting from the time…

Hey Society – Get Your Opinions Off My Body

Did you see this article? I saw it late last night and LOVED it. Even posted it to my Facebook page. In the spread, size 12 model Katya Zharkova poses nude next to a “straight size” model to show the differences between them.

I loved it… thought it was a beautiful spread, truer words were…

Gift Guide - For Men

My husband never writes a list for Christmas, or hints about gifts that he would like. Every year, I encourage him to please tell me what he would like and, every year, he says that I always know the right thing to give him (except the one year I gave him a vacuum – if you know my husband it really…

Going on 13

...When people told me to enjoy the moments of her childhood because they grow up too fast, I rolled my eyes. As I first struggled as a single mother, then with her diagnosis of her reactive attachment disorder, there were many times her childhood couldn’t end fast enough.

The Boy Next Door

Living in the country has a lot of advantages.  It is quiet, there is plenty of room, and we have very few neighbors.  It’s not that I didn’t like having neighbors when we lived in town, it’s just nice not having to worry that someone will be peeking in the windows when I am dancing around the house…

Somebody's Gotta Be The Bad Cop


It's a dirty job, but, unfortunately, somebody's gotta do it.  And this weekend?  Well, I was the one who got stuck being the bad cop.  Cause short people lying straight to my face is just not something that I take too lightly.


It all went down on Sunday, which was an unfortunate flurry of activity around here with the kids coming off the high…

Getting to College - Understanding Changes

By Kristin Thomas, College Consultant & Guest Contributor

Part of being a college consultant – and an aspect I love – is attending conferences and visiting universities. As I type from my 11th floor beautiful, ocean view dorm on the University of British Columbia campus, and reflect on the major changes young people are experiencing in this…

Teen Choice Awards Honors: Murder, Sex, Drugs & Hookers

The Teen Choice Awards airs this Sunday on Fox. I can't think of a show less appropriately titled than this one. Almost every one of the movie nominations are rated "R". I understand the whole "pushing the envelope" thing in the entertainment industry, but I really don't know why Nickelodeon (parent company: Viacom) keeps forcing adult content down the throats of kids.

Oh wait, yes I do. Advertising revenue. Instead of an awards show with commercials and product placement geared… Continue

College 101 - Summer Activities for the High School Students

By Kristin Thomas, College Consultant & Guest Contributor

Your teenager might still envision summer as the time completely disengage, but the reality is that more and more college bound students do actually plan ahead and think about what they do with their summers.  What would be the best use of their time? What activity meets their goals and would…

Parents...Really Bad Stuff Is Happening On Your Trampoline!

If you have teenagers  and a trampoline, bad things are happening in your yard. And I’m not talking about broken bones and twisted ankles.

There should be a new warning label on trampolines…”WARNING! TEENAGERS WILL MAKE OUT AND MORE ON  A TRAMPOLINE AT NIGHT!” I haven’t figured out what the graphic should look like for…
