Why travel with kids? It can be inconvenient- dragging toys, extra clothes, portable electronics, and a huge supply of Capri-Suns halfway across the country. Not to mention if you have a baby or toddler and you might as well rent a trailer to haul everything you're going to need. Plus, the kids are out of their normal routine, might be missing sleep and are eating on the run. Nerves can get frayed and tantrums blow up, particularly if it's hot and standing in line is involved.

The last time I attempted to make a pot of Chili, it was so spicy that no one could eat it except for my dear hubby. I could only down a tiny bowl and it was a total bust. I’d venture to say that not many taste testers could’ve handled the heat. Why so hot? Well, I met a can of Adobo…Continue

Fantastic Friday - it is fantastic to fake confidence in front of clients until the real thing comes.

I feel like agents at my office are often times on similar wavelengths. This last week I had some similar conversations with a few different agents. What made the experience unusual was that the subjects were brought up to me in the course of the conversation by the other person. You know that feeling where you say, "that's so funny, I just had that same conversation with so and so." Yeah, that was me last week.
As some of the newer realtors are becoming more comfortable, me…Continue

Below is an excerpt from an email to my friends Sheila and Tricia (sisters and moms of two) last summer after my son and I experienced our first flight together or travel SNAFU without Daddy’s help. My son and I fly out for the same family vacation later today. My husband meets us later this week. I am optimistic the travel experience will be smoother for us today than it was last year……Continue

Today I'd like to offer up some suggestions for interactive books/journals for your kids. Only you'll find it difficult to keep your hands off of these bad boys, because they are so much more than coloring books. They're more like personal creativity trainers between two covers, as they are full of inspiration, fun, creative direction, and ways to make art in a non-threatening, playful way. Great for kids, but what adult doesn't need a little more of this in their lives,…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

Last Friday was the last day of Camp Runamuk (the affectionate name we call life at my house when the kids are off school and fun is involved) and I decided to host the First Annual Dugdale Trifecta Easter Egg Hunt.
Here’s what you get when you have 4 mommies + 14 kids + 225 eggs + 12 tons of sugar =

. . . was the question from the Dish Network installer at my house today as we were entertaining 14 yes, I said FOURTEEN, children.
. . . was the question from the very irritated and judgmental man who almost ran my children over in the Target parking lot! “YEEEEEEEESSSS!” was my defensive and embarrassed response.

I will never forget being in elementary school and my mother sitting me down to have the dreaded sex talk. I can still see her sitting in the brown chair of our living room and hear her speak those disturbing, scary words, like penis, vagina and babies coming out of it. Oh. My. God. Is she really saying these things? Make it stop, God, please, make it stop, I remember thinking.…Continue

We took the kids to NYC yesterday. We've never been as a family because the idea of taking three small children to the city drew strikingly similar fears to being covered in honey and laid over an ant hill.
But they're old enough now that we don't have to haul around strollers and diaper bags and 400 pounds of assorted travel necessities and since we had a free Saturday and we only live a short train ride away from the…
