"How many of these kids are actually yours?!"

. . . was the question from the Dish Network installer at my house today as we were entertaining 14 yes, I said FOURTEEN, children.

Today we had Camp Runamuk, Day 2 – Gettin’ Dirty.  We made “mud” cupcakes, bird houses, paper butterflies and mommy made a sad attempt at a cardboard boomerang . . .

. . . and here’s what we learned:

1)      Bribing the children with Fun Dip for breakfast will ensure that they get their rooms clean in no…

"Are you watching these 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. 

It’s Spring Break and my “oh sh*t, I’m a stay at home mommy” hives have kicked in.  I have to entertain the children all day and maintain some semblance of my sanity.  It’s gonna be a long week.  But, on the bright side, Camp Runamuk is in full swing.

Here’s what I learned about…

Working Has Made Me a Better Mom

A little over a year ago I took the leap and went back into the workforce.

For seven years prior to that I was an English Professor. I spent the last 3 years teaching online only so I worked at home. Now I work outside the home and I LOVE my job.

I was worried about the effect it would have on my kids though. Big Brother was halfway through kindergarden and Little Brother had always been at home with me.

What I found is that my kids like school, most of the time. They…

Life Labeled as a ‘Working Mom’

Hi, it’s me standing on my soap box. Yes… again.

Moms make difficult decisions every day: Should I buy the generic diapers on sale or should I splurge on name brand? Breast or bottle? Is my child crying because he really needs something or is he crying because he’s a little fussy? Despite the unsolicited advice and lectures I have endured regarding my…

Freaking Out About Co-Sleeping

Working Mom's Guide to Social Media

I talk about myself a lot. But then again, this is the place to do so. This is MY blog.

I don’t talk about the specifics of what I do, however I share some of the drama that I sometimes encounter.

  • Driving in DC makes me CRAZY! Trying to avoid all social media until my chill pill kicks in.…

The Blame Game

When I sat down to blog this morning I was all set to write some funny anecdote about Jenna “frowing” up. Seriously she’s eight and genuinely thinks it’s called frowing up. I can’t bear to correct her; it was a beautiful glimpse of the little girl she still is.

I started perusing the internet and well, procrastinating, and came upon an article placing the blame for teenage obesity on moms, specifically improper toddler/mom bonding.  The author vehemently wondered why all the blame is…

Bikini Bod By June?

I had a visit from my former work out bud Tiffany today. The gal who would run and walk with me and of course help me indulge at times too in Starbucks coffee dates. We haven't seen each other much this summer. She's a teacher, she's been on vacation, just doing tons of stuff and our goal was to have knock out bods by June of this year so we could feel comfortable in swimsuits. …

End Weekend Insanity

Get More Out of Your Weekend

I used to be a madwoman on the weekends.  Dr. D. avoided me Saturday mornings as I rode around on my broom frantically trying to cram in as many tasks before noon as possible.  As a busy working mother, I found that my weekends were consumed with catching up on all of the stuff I couldn't  get done during the week -- laundry, cooking, errands, you name it.  Even before…
