Long live Mom and Dad

My ears always perk up when I hear something getting linked to nature instead of nurture. (Science is cool.)I remember when I was pregnant and my doctor said I should find out if my Mom was early or late with her first pregnancy to help determine if I was more likely to be early or late with my son. (I learned that we hold onto the babies in our family for…See More

The eyes have it

My eye doctor's office texted me to say that it was time for my annual eye exam. And I immediately set up my appointment. To put this in perspective, my dentist and my regular doctor have also both notified me for an appointment. But I haven't responded to them. (I will, just not right now.)I love my eye doctor. I used to go to a mean eye doctor, but he was…See More

It must be hard being a guy

I am super glad that I am a woman. Like most people, I have thought about what life must be like to be the opposite gender (people do think about that, right?) and I have determined that being a guy must be hard. I can't imagine walking around with their equipment all day or having difficulty focusing on something and shoes at the same time. That seems weird to me.…See More

I am not interested in doing homework

The other day I reminded my son that camp would be over soon, and it would be time for him to return to school. He frowned at me.I ignored his frown and told him that when he gets home from school he will need to finish any homework he has before he is allowed to play. And he immediately burst into tears. After a few minutes, I was able to determine that his…See More

Delinking the food from the fun

"Mom, is it a dessert night?" I get asked that question almost every night. And I am pretty arbitrary in whether or not it will be a dessert night, as it depends on a lot of factors. To paraphrase Cookie Monster: Dessert is a sometimes food.But, we sometimes do have dessert, where I will have my son taking everyone's order and we customize their ice cream for…See More

Will my real friends please stand up?

When we are children, life is simple: We divide our lives into things we like and things we don't like. Candy is wonderful; vegetables are not. Summer fun is the best thing ever; school is a chore that is dealt with. People we know are either friends or not friends. It turns out that last one is still true in adulthood.Before I had a child, I considered myself a…See More

Getting back to a few good books

There is something odd about my life right now. My BFF at work asked me what I was reading these days, and after thinking about it for a few moments, I had to respond with "nothing."He immediately asked me if I was feeling OK. That was a valid question, as he knows that I am always reading something, and for a woman who once happily…See More

You gotta know when to push them (part 2)

On Monday, I shared some of the ways that I push my son so he learns about money and doesn't give up on trying new things. And that is all fine and dandy. But the real challenge for me will be pushing him academically without become a crazy, overbearing Mom in the process.…See More

Yes!  I totally agree that moods can be contagious!  Thankfully, it's been a while since I've had any kind of depression.  That doesn't mean I don't have my days when things overwhelm me and everybody around me can tell!  I've been trying to be conscious to not let things get to me so that the whole house doesn't end up anxious.
