Eating Naturally - Eliminating High Fructose Corn Syrup from Our Diet

A couple of years ago, I got really into the slow food movement. (It's the antithesis of the Fast food movement.) The principles are pretty basic:…

You let Daddy do WHAT?

I don't know what it is about being in a car, but that's where my kids ask me all of life's most challenging questions. Maybe it's the fact that they're strapped into their seats with relatively few distractions. Maybe it's that I'm strapped into my seat, and they figure I'm a captive audience. Whatever it is, it's becoming a routine and I'm starting to fear road trips.… Continue

I'm a Barbie Girl in a Barbie World

So, after confessing my crash dieting practices, yesterday, I spent last night looking at before and after photos submitted by local plastic surgeons. I've long considered a breast reduction or even a breast lift while summarily dismissing implants. (I'm big enough already.) I mean, it sure would be nice to be able to go to any store and just pick out a bra or be able to… Continue

Do as I Say, Not as I Do

Everyone knows that crash dieting is a bad idea and, in theory, I agree. That said, I'm going to Hawaii with my husband and withoutmy kids in just about 3 weeks. I don't have time for the healthy approach to long term weight loss. I need full fledged body sculpting and I need it NOW!!! (Sadly, I've thought through the mechanics of home lipo and while I think… Continue

The Long Awaited Spontaneous Trip

John and I are planning a trip to Hawaii sans children and I am soooo excited!!! We've never gone away by ourselves in the 9 years we've been married (I hope I still know what to say to him). I've always talked about going to Hawaii and I've been planning the trip for 14 years (ever since going there the first time) but despite all of that, this actually came out… Continue

My Battle with PIMPS

I don't know about the rest of you, but I for one am done having kids. I say that, knowing of course, that my resolve will only hold so long as all women I spend any significant time with are also done having kids. You see, I have found that I suffer from a rarely talked about syndrome…

Family Games are a Violation of the 8th Amendment

I'm not a good play-with-my-kids kind of mommy. (How would I find the time to blog if I was? Sheesh!) Still, sometimes I get inspired to try. It's getting easier now that we're past the Candyland stage. (I used to cheat at that one just so I could lose and finally end it!) I prefer games that involve at least some strategy - games like Scrabble*, Uno*, Dominos*, Clue*,… Continue

Form a Line, Boys!

I just picked my 3 year old up from preschool and one of the other mommies told me that her son says he's going to "marry Maddie's mommy" when he grows up. Apparently I am considered to be quite the catch among the 3 and under crowd.… Continue
