How Moms Can be Savvy When Shopping High End

When you become a mother, there are some sacrifices you have to make. Say goodbye to free-time, your pre-baby body and, of course, the biggest loss of them all, designer items. The most exciting purchases you’ll make now are cute baby booties and miniature clothing you…

What to take on a trip with children, so that the suitcase is not overloaded?

To have a good rest during your family holidays, you are to get rid of extra load. It is about material or non-material issues, like business calls and overloaded baggage. It is possible! Since you’ve made up your…

Pepe Le Pew

For the last few nights, Indigo (our 10 month old Aussie) has been on the nocturnal prowl, barking at anything that moves…sometimes all night.  I imagine she is trying to protect her territory from raccoons, possums, coyotes, and skunks.

With the summer drought and winter in the air, these critters…

Shooting Stars

When I was little I watched shows like Star TrekThe Brady BunchThe Partridge Family, and Happy Days.  With the exception of flying through space at warp speed, and a family band touring on a psychedelic bus, these shows were about normal families, doing normal…

Tamales and Borscht

Tomorrow is Bunny’s adoption day.  It’s been six years since we brought our little bundle of joy home from Guatemala.  Every year I think about holding her in my arms knowing she was finally mine.

In years past we have celebrated with cake and singing, taking time to celebrate the expansion of our…

The Wheels On The Bus

...I can’t sneeze, cough, or laugh without peeing my pants, twenty pounds have decided to take residence around my midsection and along my jawline, and today I forgot to wash my hair when I was in the shower.  Completely forgot, and then wondered why my hair felt…dirty…when I was styling it. …

Guitars and Titty Bars

AUTHOR’s NOTE: This post is NOT X-Rated.  I Promise.

We live in the country, quite a few miles outside of the Kansas City suburbs.  I drive into “town” four or five times a week to buy groceries, to go shopping, or to go to the gym.  My drive is mainly spent on country…

Mothers and Daughters

Sometimes I wonder if I am screwing up my kids or if they are screwing up me.  A part of me has always thought that somehow my mother’s issues became my issues, and as hard as I try not to be like my mother…I’ve become my mother.  Frankly, I think mothers are the reason therapists have…

Where Are All The Wooly Worms?

One of the things I love about late summer and early fall is the wooly worms.  I don’t know what their technical name is, but I usually just call them wooly worms…or fuzzy caterpillars.

My grandfather always told me that the color of the wooly worms was an indication of how hard or mild the winter…

Scissors and Crayons

Sometimes international adoption can throw a curve ball when you least expect it.

When Elle was in the lower grades of elementary school, she brought home an assignment.  They had been studying the 50 states in school and how the states related to the students.  The worksheet was a map of the United…

The Boy Next Door

Living in the country has a lot of advantages.  It is quiet, there is plenty of room, and we have very few neighbors.  It’s not that I didn’t like having neighbors when we lived in town, it’s just nice not having to worry that someone will be peeking in the windows when I am dancing around the house…

Homecoming-On-A-Stick

Today is my high school homecoming.  For the past several years, I have made the pilgrimage home to partake in the festivities with my friends.

The weekend starts with pre-parade cocktails, followed by a ringside seat on the parade route.  After the parade, it’s on to a late lunch…followed by more…

Russian Hats

When I think of the Russians and what they wear on their heads, I think of furry military hats or colorful babushkas (head scarves) tied around the babushka’s (grandmother’s) heads. Before I adopted Elle, I rarely thought of baby beanies we put on our infants heads.

Soccer Queen

Summer is winding down, fall is in the air, school has started…and the soccer season has commenced.

I realize my popularity may wane when I admit that I hate soccer.  I don’t get it, I didn’t play it growing up, and I don’t understand what all the fuss is all about.  But, this doesn’t stop me from…

RADish Hugs

Radishes really can’t hug, but then neither can RADishes.

Reactive Attachment Disorder is a disorder of relationships, so it isn’t surprising that children with RAD aren’t warm and fuzzy huggers.  I never really noticed this with my daughters.  I am a hugger, so I was always hugging them.  I didn’t…

The Devil's Playground

The Devil’s playground is not would you would assume it to be. It is not Las Vegas, or a strip club, or Nordstrom’s handbag department. It is a suburban parking lot. With two exceptions, every fender bender I have ever been in has occurred in a parking lot.

Middle School Vogue

I pride myself on being a reasonably fashionable person.  I make an effort to keep my clothes up to date, my hair in style, and my makeup fresh.  So, it is with much angst that I have watched Elliott slip into the sloppy styles sported by her middle school friends.

Gulag Bunny

I have a very odd sense of humor.  I love nothing more than embarrassing my children by car dancing at stop lights, or driving a white VW Beetle convertible covered with colorful daisy decals, or driving around in the same car, top down, with a stuffed deer head in the backseat.

So, it isn’t really surprising that before…

It's Greek To Me

How many sorority girls does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Fifty. One to screw in the light bulb and forty-nine to sing.

Twenty-nine years ago I was a painfully shy, eighteen year old college freshman. I can’t…

Stress Fracture

Stress fractures aren’t an actual break in the bone and you can’t really see them on an x-ray, but they are incredibly painful and if not treated, they can create more complex problems later.

I have a stress fracture right now, but it isn’t in my bones.

It is in my…

Rubber Tires and Tennis Shoes

Today is the 13th anniversary of my first husband’s death.  He was killed in the crash of Swissair 111 off the coast of Nova Scotia.

This time of year is always difficult for me; some times are harder than others.  I call this time around his death my blue cloud period.  Some years I am so deep in…

Healing Hands of a Sister

You can never truly understand a person until you have walked a mile in their shoes.  I don’t know what it’s like to be adopted, or to be given up at birth, and I don’t know what it’s like to have reactive attachment disorder (RAD).
