We generally struggle to find activities that will occupy the kids during church services on Sunday. I lug a large tote bag filled with different items each week and pray that we can keep them entertained enough for me to actually listen during the meeting.…Continue

My son is a boy's boy, a rough and tumble kid. He likes football, plays baseball, watches racing. He doesn't hold hands with mom much anymore, and he only says "I love you" at night.
So that's why I owe a big debt of gratitude to "Wallace and Gromit."
I don't know if you've seen this British series, but my kids love it. I think it's just okay - but I'll admit, it's growing on me.
There are "Wallace and Gromit" movies and "Wallace and Gromit" shorts, and they all revolve…Continue

In case you’re wondering why I look a little taller today, it’s because I’m standing on my mommy soap box. Check out Mommy DIY if you don’t want to read my statement, otherwise, read on.
I want to be a good mom, I really do, but I have no idea what I am doing! While I was pregnant I studied parenting literature, questioned other moms, and prepared myself for baby. Lately, people just tell me what to do when I’m…Continue

Each day that I walk home from Aliya's bus stop I chat with one of my neighbors who also has a child that rides the bus with her. We basically share our thoughts on general things like life, kids and whatever we can think of for our five minute catch up as we walk home.
I work from home and I didn't have the previous day scheduled to work so me being my Martha Stewart self (I like to think so) kept myself busy. I told her how I organized Ayanna's entire closet before she came home…Continue

Can someone please explain to me what 'quality time' is? I hear a lot about it, and hear that sometimes it's not the quantity of time that you spend with your kids but the quality of the time spent that is what matters most. It seriously makes me wonder what the hell 'quality time' is.
Take our recent evenings, for instance. My kids and I have found the TV show 'Sliders' on Netflix's instant watch, and we've spent the last 3…

There is something elemental about a pedicure. Not the neon bright colors that often adorn the toenails, nor the callus grater they use to scrub the skin to baby-butt soft, it’s about touch. Pedicures are about making a human connection. That and the opportunity to have your toes look like a traffic…Continue

Each quarter I think it's a good idea to check out my schedules and see if I need to make changes. School is back on the routine and my nephews had to get picked up from school this month. So October is really going to look different. So lets get started.
I want to make time for all of you here at…Continue

I get it, actually. There is something very rewarding about jotting down do-not-forget’s and to-do’s on paper. And there is an immediate, tactile satisfaction too in scratching off that “done” item and…Continue

If you had a free hour… or even a free day, what would you do with it? You may imagine that you’d read all the books and magazines that have been collecting dust in your home. Or maybe you’d rent the entire season of your favorite show from Netflix and watch nine episodes in a row. Or maybe…Continue

I have a number of working mothers in my marketing department and several have arranged flexible work schedules to accommodate their changing work/life demands. Flexible work schedules are becoming much more common as employers recognize it as valuable tool for retaining their top talent and promoting work/life balance. In my department we have a number of different kinds of…
