When I'm driving around a carpool of screaming ten-year-old girls, it's sometimes hard not to wanna drive the car straight into Lake Michigan. Seriously, these girls are capable of some severe damage to one's hearing (not to mention one's sanity). However, one of the benefits of driving them around is that I get to…Continue

I've been having a hard time lately with this whole growing up thing that my kids insist on doing. It's like every time I turn around, they're gaining an inch on me, wanting to run around town with their friends, and begging for a cell phone. Seriously, what is the rush already??!! I, for one, am not entirely ready to…Continue

Some women view cleaning up as a chore, but I view it as a step by step process that is organized, effective and actually relaxing (crazy I know). Allow me to explain:
Here is picture of my kitchen after dinner, which pretty much looks like a disaster. There are dishes everywhere, items to be stored and put away, dirty napkins, counter tops that are littered with cutting boards, grease and the remnants of a delicious meal.…Continue

Does your newborn constantly have scratch marks on their face? As a mom, this used to drive me crazy because I didn’t want my beautiful babies face all scratched up. When my oldest son was a baby, I found these cute mittens that covered up his hands to keep him from scratching up his face even if I just…Continue

I wanted to call this post I know best, but thought it might be a bit too presumptuous. So, I disguised myself as a Mother. Which I am. Since getting this honorary title, I have discovered it comes with so many responsibilities. The famous line of from J.F.K. comes to mind, somewhat altered though: "ask not what…Continue

As much as I loathe winter weather, there truly is something magical about the first snow of the season. Those white flakes falling gracefully from the sky always bring an unexpected peacefulness in my otherwise chaotic world. And being able to share that special moment with my kids makes it all that more memorable for me.
We got our first snowy dusting just this…Continue

Magnificent Monday - and just like that I was on my own, an ahhh, moment.
Each Magnificent Monday throughout the month of September will be about sharing an "aaaahhhh, that's when moment." This week's moment is the moment I realized I was an adult living on my own.
When I was nineteen years old I moved out of my mother's house and into my own one room apartment in Center City Philadelphia. I moved into the Lucy Eaton Smith Home for Girls.…

On Friday Luke and Matt were eating apples. Matt said "Ow, my teeth hurt!"
Uh-oh, I thought, he's finally going to lose a tooth! As it turns out, BOTH bottom front teeth are loose and as I looked into his mouth I saw *gasp* that his big teeth are already growing in…

So I got that old familiar pit in the bottom of my motherly stomach again yesterday. It happened when I dropped my son off for his first day of Sports Camp. Yes, it's that same ol' dreaded feeling I seem to get whenever I leave my timid little guy in a strange new environment. You see, unlike his mama, he's quite the shy type, and it takes every bit of my willpower not to play the…

My kids are getting to that dreaded age where every flippin' weekend they beg for a sleepover. As soon as school gets out on Friday, they start hittin' me up for a party in their pj's. And I don't know about you, but I am not a big fan of the sleepover, mainly because it ends up biting ME in the ass the next day.
Now my son is not really the issue, since he…Continue

If you're anything like me, making sympathy cards is not at the top of your list of favorite things to do.
When someone loses a loved one or a pet, one of the ways we let them know that we’re thinking about them is by sending them a sympathy card.
I have a little ritual I began when I started hand-making my own sympathy cards. I turn on some music…Continue

Weddings are wonderful, festive, life-changing, and occasionally disastrous events. I suppose Forrest Gump's famous line could apply to them, in that you never know what you're gonna get.
I was absolutely thrilled when my best friend asked me to be Matron of Honor in her New Year's Eve…
