Safety Tips to Prevent Your Dream Pool from Becoming a Nightmare

Whether it’s a cosy hot tub, a full-sized pool or something in between, having a private place to take a dip at home is one of life’s greatest luxuries. There is little that compares to shrugging off the day’s troubles with a few relaxing laps or a good book and the gentle massage of…

Ninja Mommy

My sister told me the other day they were going to put a bell around my neck...

Like a cat...

So they always know where I am.



I took great pride in this statement.



I started with the whole 'ninja' thing (it's in just about any profile of mine you can possibly find- Twitter, Top Mommy Blogs, Facebook, everything) a few years ago, and it started…

When I Was a Kid...

Most days I look at my kids and think, ‘Are you sure you are my kids? Did they switch you at the hospital?’ Don’t get me wrong, they both look just like me, but it’s only every now and then that their actions or mannerisms scream that my DNA is somewhere inside of them.
Take my son, for example. He is an amazing artist, and every now and then, he’ll stick his tongue out of the corner of his mouth while he’s drawing. He got that from me, and I got that from my dad-…

Clothing Battle Won (For Now)

Every morning there’s a constant struggle in my household. My daughter is 9, going on 16, and thinks that she can dress like it. Thanks to society telling her via TV shows, music, movies, and “cool” clothing lines that it’s okay, she doesn’t quite understand why her mother is so opposed to it.
 
“But Mom, I want skinny jeans. Everyone at school wears skinny jeans, why can’t I?”
 
Because not everyone has a mom with PMS (…

15 Things I've Learned in my 30s

Another year has gone by, another birthday is upon me. This time, though, today, I turn 31. Blah. Last year was the big 3-0, but it marked the beginning to a new era. This year? Just one more year into that era, so it's nothing big. Just makes me feel one year older.



Today, I wanted to share some of the things I learned in the last year of my life, the first year of my 30s:

  1. Wrinkle cream is amazing. I started out with Garnier Nutrisse…

I Suffer From PMS (Not What You Think)

I suffer from PMS... badly. And no, it's not what you think.



Paranoid Mom Syndrome, or PMS.





I'm quite a proud sufferer of it, thank you.



What is PMS? It's a disease that affects some mothers (the good ones, if you ask me) from the moment they find out they are pregnant, and lasts, well, forever. PMS gets worse as the children get older, and can actually…

'Quality Time'? What's That?

Can someone please explain to me what 'quality time' is? I hear a lot about it, and hear that sometimes it's not the quantity of time that you spend with your kids but the quality of the time spent that is what matters most. It seriously makes me wonder what the hell 'quality time' is.



Take our recent evenings, for instance. My kids and I have found the TV show 'Sliders' on Netflix's instant watch, and we've spent the last 3…

Cheap(ish) Family Fun Night

I happened to have a day off from both of my jobs, on a Friday nonetheless, and decided it was time for some family fun. I asked the kids what they wanted to do, and my daughter comes up with going to see a movie. I sent them off to school and started researching (it's been since last Easter that I've been to a movie theater). $10 for each adult ticket, $7.50 for each child. Wtf?? Maybe if we went directly after school, matinees are any showing before 5, right? First off, no, matinees…
