Playground Wars, Round I (Mom vs Mom)

So I was at the playground today with my two littles ones and four other mothers and their children.  While there, I was introduced to a new mom by one of my good mom-friends.  We exchanged casual hellos, you know the typical greeting.  Fast forward an hour later and I'm realizing that this new mom's son is a little aggressive on the playground.  I have two daughters and my oldest is a little timid, at times.  Ok, here's the situation.  I am pushing my 15 month old on the swings and watching my…See More

Who needs a therapist? It's amazing what a little retail therapy can do to soothe the soul!

So, it's one of those rainy days in sunny San Diego.  I'm holed up in the house with two little girls and bored out of my mind.  What do I do?  Well while my two daughters partake in a PBS-feast, I log on to the Internet and start checking out some "sales."  Dangerous?  Yup.  Especially when you can find some great deals, i.e., no added costs (taxes) and free shipping.  But what else?  How about finding even more discounts?If you're like me, you love a deal.  And I always feel better about a…See More

HGTV's House Hunters makes home buying look so easy...too bad it's not!

I'm an HGTV fan fanatic. Really! My husband says that I have the channel on 24/7. Maybe because I'm slightly obsessed with buying a new home and/or updating our current living arrangements -- or maybe just because the show is kid friendly and I can have it on and not worry about my toddlers hearing or seeing anything that should not.One of my favorite shows is HGTV's House Hunters. I love that show. I mean three houses in a half hour and BOOM, the couple always seems to select the right one and…See More

Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane...(http://notanotherdirtydiaper.blogspot.com/)

Yup, call me crazy but I did it. I booked myself a flight to the psych ward...well, not quite but.... I did do what some believe is the unthinkable. I booked myself and my two "toddler" daughters on a cross country (San Diego to Newark) trip for the holidays and am flying solo....meaning no hubs in sight.Why? Well, have you taken a look at what airfare costs this year? In order to get the best deal possible...since we are paying for three seats now, I had to book myself and the girls on flights…See More

What are you thankful for this holiday season?

It's so easy to get caught up on the materialistic aspect that seems to come hand-in-hand with the upcoming holiday season. Seriously? Thanksgiving? I think more people are excited about Black Friday. But let's pause for a moment and really think, what are you thankful for this holiday season? Me? I'm thankful for my family and their good health. It's amazing how we take our health for granted. It isn't until you hear bad news that you realize just how reliant and how often times you take your…See More

Holiday Gift Suggestions (for the 1 year old and younger)

What to buy for a one year old? Especially when that (nearly) one year old has an older sister who has most everything! Well I did a bit of research and logged some time window shopping at Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Target and Amazon and here’s my suggestions…Leapfrog My First Book ($14.99+) There are two different versions available. Good Night Scout and Fide and Seek on the Farm. I opted for the Farm version and allowed my little one to do a test-run in the store. She loved being able to flip…See More

The birthday blues....

Did anyone else catch last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? If so, you saw two moms plan over-the-top birthday parties for their two toddlers. And yes, I said BOTH moms planned and held elaborate parties. I mean in comparison, one of the mother’s really went overboard (as did her plastic surgeon regarding her overly plumped lips)….and the final event didn’t even resemble a party for a toddler – more like an adult party with the child as an afterthought because let’s face…See More

Drama mama....

As a mom of two girls, I often wonder what drama their teenage years will bring. What will our relationships be like and how do I avoid the pitfalls that my own mother and I have experienced? The recent visit from my own mother made me stop, reflect and realize what an evolving and ever changing relationship mothers and daughters go through.My oldest daughter is only three years old but during the last few months, I’ve noticed that she is becoming more self sufficient or shall I say self…See More

Who put the Ma in Glamazon? Not me!

It’s late at night and I’m doing double duty as usual, the multi-tasker that I am. I’m in the shower bathing myself while also scrubbing the tub clean. Fun? Not. But hey, someone has to do it.It’s as I step out of the shower and catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror that I literally do a double take. I don’t recognize myself. Who is this overweight, pudgy, middle-aged woman staring back at me? A nightmare perhaps? I wish. I was screaming (inside my head) but now, this is my new reality.In…See More

What’s for dinner? Mmmm, Mmmm, good.

I often find myself wondering what to make for dinner. As a stay at home mom, I find myself feeling as if a home cooked meal is a necessity and part of what I term, my job description. I’m often times scouring the freezer and pantry to find the easiest thing – while also being nutritious for my girls.Well just in time for the fall and winter months, Campbell’s Chunky Soup has introduced three new varieties: Hearty Italian Wedding soup, Hearty Beef Noodle soup and Hearty Tomato with Pasta soup.…See More

Who's watching the kids?

So I write this as my two little ones are settled downstairs watching Blues Clues and playing – well when my oldest isn’t yanking her toys from her little sister’s hands! Let’s be honest, if they weren’t watching TV, I wouldn’t be up here in the loft getting some work done.This from a mom who swore that her kids wouldn’t watch any TV or if they were it would be limited. Well, good news is it is limited (both in amount of and kind of)….bad news, they watch TV.That being said, I do only allow…See More

Game on….or not.

This weekend I had the tedious chore of reconciling our latest credit card bill. Usually it’s pretty easy but this month I noticed a charge from an Internet company that wasn’t familiar. In fact, the charge description only provided an 866 phone number. So being due diligent, I called the number. Low and behold, it was a “store front” billing company and it was unable to let me know the name or nature was/is for the company billing me.Hmmm, really? Next call was to the credit card company to…See More

What about me?

As a mom, I struggle daily with whose needs are more important. With two kids, the oldest is three and the youngest is nine months, it seems that someone always needs something and what I need is placed on the backburner. My favorite line these days is, “mommy only has two hands.” Seriously, why can’t mothers grow a disposable third arm and hand that they can use and would automatically detach and could be discarded after the kids reach school age?That being said, I always hear from other moms…See More

Girlfriends = Sanity

Posted on February 9, 2011 at 8:54pm 0 Comments

Looking back at my life, I see how important my girlfriends are and were in my life.  From keeping me out of trouble; being the voice of reason; having my back; providing free therapy sessions; making me laugh through my tears; and just plain listening when it seems no one else could -- my girlfriends have all made lasting and important contributions to strengthening and supporting me in times of need. …
