The dangers of single parenthood

My Mom is an amazing woman (thanks, Mom!). And she is a tough woman: Being a single mom to two children while holding down a full-time job is a rough gig. Because she worked 60+ hour weeks, I learned how to cook and clean, as well as how to look after myself and get myself where I needed to go. I'm probably a more independent person today because of her.…

Talking about our weight

My son likes to tap on my fitbit. He likes to see how many dots I have and (after I explained what the dots are measuring) he encourages me to move around more to get all my dots for the day.



Most parents admit that they are uncomfortable talking with their children about…

Seven hours of sleep at night

It's 10 pm; the house is quiet. I double-check the locks on all the doors and go room-by-room, turning off the lights. The dishwasher is humming, the cat is following me, and there is a slight glow at the top of the stairs from our hallway nightlight. I slowly push back the door to my son's room to check on him. (I cherish the way he looks in slumber with one hand up by his face and an arm wrapped around his favorite stuffed animal.) I…

Are Your Jeans a Bit Snug?

Know that feeling when your favorite jeans are feeling a bit snug?  You know, when you have to do the bunny hop to get them all the way up or you have to lay flat on the floor to get them buttoned?  Yeah, you know exactly what I mean ladies.  At that point, you start to blame the dryer for shrinking them or your husband who put them in the dryer!  How dare he!…

You’re too old. As if! Growing old never looked so good! (Giveaway!)

I must admit, if you would have asked me my thoughts on ageing 10 years ago my reply would have been a negative one. And why not!?! Everything I had seen on television, in magazines, conversations with friends, etc. told me that once you get grays & wrinkles your life was pretty much over; you mine as well curl up into a ball and wait to die. Nothing about getting old seemed glamorous. Old people always complain about this breaking, that not working like it used to, etc. Ugh! Who…

Don't wake that baby up

In our household I think about sleep a lot: Who is getting enough of it and how to get more quality sleep. I am obsessed over my own sleep as well as that of the bears I live with and help wake up in the morning.…

You might be making your spouse fat

My husband and I both work full time. And there was a long period where we worked in the same company (albeit different departments). And we both worked really long hours.



Then we had our little guy and life had to change: There were more important aspects to our life together than work.…

THE 'WORK-LIFE-BALANCE-THING'

People are working almost 24 x 7 these days. I have a lot of friends who work in corporate world and here is a short story on one of them:

A friend of mine had a very lucrative sales job and her team was based out of China and U.S.A. When I used to ask her about how that worked out, she told me that she would work with her team in the U.S.A. during the morning hours and then come back home, feed her kids, make them do their homework, put them to sleep and would be on calls with her…

How to Prevent Child Skin Rash

I have changed a few diapers and it doesn't look like I'll be in the clear for quite a long time. My kids have outgrown them, but besides being a nanny for many years prior to having them, I am the assistant director of early childhood for a large children's program for infant through pre-schoolers, so still around babies and toddlers daily.



Yes, I've wiped a good share of bums and am proud of it!…

I'm stalking myself

I asked for - and received - a fitbit for Christmas. I thought it would make me move more throughout my day. And maybe it does. But what it has really done has made me obsessed with my sleep.



Every morning, I sync over my data and look at my sleep efficiency. I stare at the magenta areas: What is waking me…

The highs and lows of marriage

I like being married. I still get little thrills sometimes when someone refers to me as "Mrs. Markman" or when I get to introduce my husband to people. There is a security in being united to my husband who is not only the love of my life, but my best friend.



He's mine. I'm his. It's nice.…

How old do you feel?

A few weeks ago, one of my coworkers asked me how old I was. She said she wanted to know because I seemed to have too much energy. I asked her to guess, and she said 28.



First of all, I thanked her, since I am actually in my mid-thirties. She seemed shocked and asked my secret. I explained that my son…

Does milk still do your body good?

I grew up watching those milk commercials where a scrawny tween drank milk to capture the attention of an older, hotter teenager. And to this day, I drink milk. I don't drink the supposedly recommended three cups a day, but I do generally have a cup a day. From a young age, I bought into the whole marketing campaign: Yes, I want strong bones and teeth and I understand that milk provides me with the bulk of my daily calcium…

Something is growing in your car seat

Sometimes when I am at work I look at my keyboard and am disgusted because I can't remember the last time I cleaned it. This is usually followed by a bout of spraying and swabbing it.…

Exciting News Big Changes

Three years ago I thought it would be a great idea to create a blog.  I had no idea what I was doing.  I logged in to Blogger and went through the steps.  It was easy to get started but then I was stuck looking at a blank canvas not knowing what direction to take this new project. 

 

Over the years my blog has become something more than what I originally thought…

It's 3 pm, and I can't remember what I'm supposed to be doing

For months, I've become interested in my son's memories: What will his first long-term memory be? What memories from this age will he retain?



But at some point, I've realized that I've started losing some of my memories. I…
