Power Outage in Snowstorm a Blessing in Disguise

It was the biggest snowstorm our area had seen in more than two decades. Nearly a foot of snow had already piled up by the time we woke up the morning after Christmas, and the snow continued throughout the day. We were… Continue

Easy Bake Oven is a Hot Mess

Whoever invented the Easy Bake Oven should be forced to eat nothing but Easy Bake foods for the rest of his life. These things have been around for almost 50 years. You'd think someone would have figured out by now that it's more fun to buy some real cookie mix, bake it in the real oven, and actually eat the cookies. The stuff that comes out of that cheap plastic, light-bulb heated contraption isn't even close to food. It's like some kind of dehydrated space food from NASA.



Here is my… Continue

Breast Obsession and Our Kids

Forgive me if this post violates the family-friendly atmosphere I try to maintain here at Momniscient, but I just had to make some comments about boobs. The issue of big breasts hit me (almost literally) the other day…

Best and Worst Fast Food Kids' Meals

I am a bit obsessive when it comes to feeding my kids. When I start looking at labels and realizing that EVERYTHING they eat has sugar, salt, and disgusting chemicals it just makes me crazy! Even so-called "healthy" foods like yogurt and granola bars are loaded with refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. It makes me want to move to a cabin in the woods and feed the kids…

Do Your Kids Sleep With You?

An article on the Access Hollywood Web site recently got my attention: "Mayim Bialik Talks Unconventional Parenting." I was interested first of all because it was about Blossom. Can you believe that show was 20 years ago? Will that poor girl ever NOT be Blossom??

 

Second of all, it was about "unconventional parenting," and I had to read it because I was sure…

Christmas Ideas To Stay Stress Free

Christmas can be the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, but it can also be the Most Stressful Time of the Year. All that shopping, planning, decorating, baking and traveling can turn a lovely holiday season into an anxiety-filled nightmare.



I'm as guilty as the next perfectionist. I want everything to look, smell, and feel just as it did when I was growing up. And when it doesn't, it means I am a failure. I have failed to "do" Christmas well.



I can't tell you how many times I…
