Open Letter to Parents Magazine

Posted on November 22, 2009 at 6:07pm 1 Comment

Over the course of the 13 months of being a parent I have learned two very important lessons: 1) Parenting is the hardest, scariest job in the world. 2) Excluding the few monster moms flashed across Fox News (if it bleeds, it leads), most parents are doing their best so try not to be such a critic of others‘ parenting styles.

The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Posted on August 19, 2009 at 12:52pm 0 Comments

Back in my teaching days, whenever my kindergarten children were having a crummy day we always pulled out Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

On the back cover of Nutrition Action Healthletter, one of my favorite sources for nutritional information, there is a section called “Food Porn” which highlights some of the worst foods you can eat. If I was to create a list entitled “Baby Food Porn” Gerber Graduates Cereal Bars would be high on my… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
