Does the Media Pressure You to be a Hot Mom?

Yesterday I slathered on sunless tanner (ahem, review purposes). I even dressed up a bit. OK, so I basically picked out a button-down shirt and ironed it, but I totally did my hair and make-up and wore cute shoes. Even accessories. For just me. It's like I'm back despite my three inch roots. I'm trying to hold on to who I was before I got pregnant this third time, because I swear this third pregnancy really wants to see me in sweats, worn out yoga pants and a ratty t-shirt on a daily basis. It… Continue

Deliver Us From Elmo! Scholastic DVD Collection Brings Classics to Life

Like many parents, I try and limit tv exposure for my kids,

attempting instead to fill their days with hands-on creative play,

together and independently while I go about my business.



Lately, though, my toddler’s morning routine has become character-driven, with an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba while I prepare breakfast, and an hour of Sesame Street afterward while I play with our

infant and get him squared away for his first nap.…

Oprah and Celeb Moms Give Us Hope

"Oprah isn't 'like' many of her viewers in terms of income, but she connects to them on a personal level," said Lou Manza, a psychology professor at Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania. "She has chronicled her own struggles in a very public manner, and this lets people see that while she is wealthy, she also has 'regular' problems and has managed to work through them. This gives people hope - 'If Oprah did it, so can I.'" This quote came from the… Continue

Did you know that the colors you wear can stimulate specific responses in the brain? According to “Psychology of Color” on ThinkQuest.Com, you can trigger responses beyond the brain and affect glands and other organs. I knew my red suit had magic!

"Mom, Dad's a boy, he has a peanut!" What you may ask yourself is my 2 year old talking about?

Gratitude is an Attitude of the Heart

The holiday season is here and most of us are planning and preparing to make our family gatherings a time of joy and celebration. From meals to gift giving, once November 1st arrives, the rush is on and anticipation builds.



For some, it can be a stressful time, for others it is their most favorite time of year. Most years, I find myself feeling a bit of both. When I feel the stress beginning to take hold, I am always brought back to my childhood and the lesson my parents instilled in… Continue

Gloria Allred, Nick Lachey and Butterfly, Oh My!

We are on a high and it's not the kind of high we fear for our children. Terry and I have just wrapped up our trip to Los Angeles where we continued our commitment to delivering inspiring and empowering mom mentor videos. Our interviews took us to Gloria Allred's office where she revealed that she felt as if she were in the midst of a Tsunami as the Tiger Woods case reached its climax (no pun intended). We witnessed the softer side of Gloria that day, a woman who was overcome with feelings of… Continue

14 Not Forgotten



Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre.



I was 18-years-old when the 14 women were gunned down. As an earlier adopter of feminism, I had already done much of the reading required of a budding feminist and had some very decent mentors in place.



When the Montreal Massacre happened, it rocked my young world. Twenty years have gone by and never have I forgotten that day. Throughout my life, I have… Continue

TIGER WOODS FOLLOW UP

This is a follow up to my previous Tiger Woods blog. Forgiveness is something we all need. Is that not true? I mean think about your worst transgression, now think about if everybody in America knew it. Know think about the person you are, and how you truly are not that worst trangression. You would not want anyone judging your entire life on your worst transgression. You are more than that. You are better than your worst flaw, your worst mistake. I think this needs to be said… Continue

Moving House







So we finally bit the bullet and are moving house. The thought of it is overwhelming – so much crap to be sorted, packed or purged. With six kids, I know you can imagine just how much crap we’re talking here. Adding further stress is the prospect of making our current house look nice enough that some other family will want to buy it.



Getting our house sale-ready will be a big job. My kids have left their marks – on the… Continue

Hello from Singapore

Although I am still in beautiful Singapore with my Daughter “the Gymnast” and “My Rock”, I thought I should communicate with you prior to my return.



First, Singapore is beautiful and we are having an amazing time. I am so blessed that I can travel and take my children with me. We have decided that we will take each child on their own trip– so this was Gymnasts trip. My other two children also had their “on their own trips” It is a whole other world… Continue
