The Mother’s Day Gift to Give Yourself

Mothers can have bad days – kids misbehave, work gets on top of you, the house is a dump, your husband is being useless, etc. Mothers often tell me that when they are having a bad day, they think of me and they instantly feel better. The chaos in my life provides them with some comfort in those manic mama moments.

But I have to let you in on a little secret: it’s not that bad. In fact, it’s pretty darn good. Sure, I don’t get a lot of sleep and nights out on the town are few and far…

Brenda Novak's Online Auction to Benefit Diabetes Research

Diabetes is a killer. My 15 year old son was diagnosed with it when he was 11. It's been a tough almost five years, but things are looking up. I met Brenda Novak, a NY Times bestselling author, at a local writers meeting. Her son has the disease, too. Brenda is a dynamo. She took a proactive approach and started her Online Auction a few years ago. Since then, it's raised more than $700,000 for diabetes research!!


I host a page on the auction site, and this week Brenda is…

Giving Kids What They Don’t Want

I posted a blog recently about the value of saying “No” to kids. The gist was:

1) Your kids will be fine if they don’t get what they want all the time.

2) If you’re going to say “No” then be sure to follow through – unless you like to lead the double life of parent and white noise machine.

I just discovered another good time to say “No”– when it comes to buying them nice things. Ya know why? Because they don’t…

What's This "Internet Stuff" About?

Hubby DOES NOT understand anything that I do on the internet – EVER. I am completely addicted to my Blackberry and way ADD with it. I get antsy when I’m not doing this with my hands – weird, right? I’ll be sitting on the couch watching t.v. talking with my hubby after the kids are in bed and I’ll get antsy. Either I’m crafting, drawing, or on my Blackberry. And it drives him crazy… why? I really don’t know other than he wants me to pay attention and be 100% focused on…

Empowering Your Child...A Crossroad for Parents

The word "empowering" is floating around the parenting community quite a lot these days. When asked, most parents are in favor of it.



When you speak to parents about educating their children about the principles of the law of attraction, most are in favor of it.



Parents love the part about their children thinking positive thoughts, choosing positive actions, and being grateful for what they have in their life. However, as you go further into the meaning and purpose of… Continue

I want Moooosic Mummy!

This morning, after the dulcit tones of



"Mummmmmmyyyyy I wake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"



Swiftly followed by footsteps more befitting of a baby elephant than a 2 year old, my toddler arrived at my bedside.



We did our normal ritual. Wee wee, Peppa slippers, screams because I try and get away without carrying her down the stairs (oh my poor back).



Finally we arrive in the kitchen for milk. Things went wrong when she fell head first off the work surface and…

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
