That Bulky Thing

This may seem like a weird thing to be thankful for, but I’m thankful for that bulky mattress…

So, we upgraded to a new bed months ago. However, our old king mattress still lives in our home, much to my chagrin. The kids protested getting rid of it.  “Please mom, not yet!” It’s now become one of the kids’ favorite…

Unwritten

It's been a painful number of days; hard to write ...

My beloved dogs vanished from my yard; an oversight by my mother-in-law.  Truth be told, I couldn't even look at her because I was so upset. I believe I discovered first hand how "seething" actually felt.  That was an emotional jolt I don't wish on anyone; the side…

Baby Gear Mom: Children's ACCUDIAL

A new study by the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology shows even small overdoses of acetaminophen over time can be deadly.  Too much can eventually cause serious liver damage, among other issues.

And, studies also show, more than half of parents give their children inaccurate doses*. It can boil down a number of…

Do You Know Where Your Children Are?

The murder of Georgia 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera eats at me.  The thought the animal who did this is still out there, it just makes my blood boil and my soul hurt.  Bendito!

Playing Producer

3-2-1 … I’m a producer. While you sleep, I work. What does a producer do? I create the newscast you wake up to every morning.

The life of a TV morning show producer is simple on paper only. We crank out scripts, produce segments, supervise a live show, communicate concurrently to staff, etc. etc. etc., and it has to be…

Chips Ahoy or Oreos?

Oreos or Chips Ahoy?  That’s the big debate in my house.  Actually, I’m quite out numbered.  Oreos win by a landslide.  I don’t get it.  I can’t take all that creme after a while.  ¡Repugna!The kids and hubby love all the options Oreos have to offer: split them in half for a creme side, and a…

Thank You Xavier Roberts

Each year we hear about the must-have toys and gadgets of the season.  It's hard not to think of one of the first Christmas gifts I remember: my Cabbage Patch doll.  Her official name was Zia Terri.  I changed her name to Tina Marie.  Good ol' Tina with her bright yellow track suit, brown yarn braids,…

Life In An Instant

Taking pictures has been a hobby for as long as I can remember.  I’m not a pro or anything, but it’s something I truly enjoy. I remember the smile on my face when I took this picture on a small beach in Loiza, Puerto Rico.  We literally stumbled upon it during one of our “let’s get lost” excursions.  It was so beautiful, we…

Bending the Rules

Thanksgiving weekend tends to be a big deal in my house. It’s Thanksgiving, ShaiAnne’s birthday and also the weekend when we dust off the Christmas decorations. Who needs a calendar when our mini drill sergeants are on the case, asking “when Mom, when Dad?” They absolutely love it and squeal in excitement when it’s…

What's Your Playlist?

So excited, I got my new sneakers this weekend.  My pinkies (the name I gave them, although they favor a salmon tint) are finally being put to bed.  4 races, more than 100 runs, over 30,000 calories burned – it feels good.  I went a little goth with my new pick, mostly because these would match most of what I would wear.  Since…

The Soap Solution

 

When “All My Children” bit the dust earlier this year, the reason given – dwindling audience interest in soaps.  Immediately I thought of what I’ve heard from so many people.  American soaps just never end.  I think that was part of the problem. How many times is a character going to get married, change careers, get possessed, die and come back to life again?  It gets a…
