A Busy Mom’s Guide to Achieving Your New Year’s Resolution

A new year gives you the opportunity to start over and make changes that can affect your overall health and well being.  The number one New Year’s resolution each year for many people is to lose weight or to become more physically fit.  However, only 92% of people actually achieve their goal.  I normally don’t set resolutions for myself because I know that in order to change, I would need to set small attainable goals in order to see the results that I am looking…

Knocked-Out

This is probably terrible to say, but I was actually looking forward to my husband’s endoscopy today. In fact, he was, too.

 

“It’s sort of like our vacation,” Jeff said as we discussed the upcoming procedure. “I hope they knock me out.”

“I hope it takes at least several hours,” I added.

 

Clearly, we were desperate for escape. Between our 2-year-old’s potty…

Being a Super Mommy Isn't All It's Cracked Up To Be

There’s a mommy epidemic that’s been going around the nation lately. I read about it in blogs, hear it in news articles and see it with some of my own friends: the pressure to be a super mom. Not just a super mom – super woman. Before RJ was born, I almost succumbed to this mindset. And I was driving myself crazy. I finally reached a breaking point and realized that the image of a mom that society projects onto women doesn’t have to be…

Baby's First Food - RJ's Officially on Solid Foods.

I’m not sure if I mentioned this a few weeks ago or not, but RJ is officially on his first real food: oatmeal! It’s recommended that you start your baby on cereal – or their first solid foods – around four months because babies sometimes aren’t ready to start chewing {gumming?} their food until that point. RJ was ahead of thatmilestone: he showed all of the signs of being ready for his first solid foods, including being the…

READY, SET, DE-STRESS

Happy New Year Fab Moms!!!



   For many 2012 was a slowing moving blur and for others it flew by at warp speed. For some 2012 was filled with 60 hour work weeks; play dates; taking the kids to lacrosse, basketball, soccer or football practice. We chased our little ones through the mall, endured a visit from the mother-in-law, and tried to decipher 5th grade geometry.  Well, you get the idea.  The life of a fab mom can be stressful and the stress can be consuming.  With…

I quit my job and started a consulting firm. I got married to the love of my life and had a beautiful baby boy. And amongst all of these tangible life changes, I learned a lot about life, love and relationships.…

New Year, New Hope

I've been sitting here for a couple of hours contemplating what to write about 2012. How can I possibly convey in words what that year has meant for me and for my family?

There is a quote that instantly springs to mind, and I feel that it is more fitting in my life now than it has ever been before.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of…
