Another reason why I miss our cats

I really, really miss our cats. They have both moved on from us, and I still find myself missing their presence in our lives. I know my son misses them (well, the one he can remember), as he occasionally sings me a song about her and how sweet she was.…

Finding a friend when you are sick

The weather in Charlotte has been crazy lately - it snowed a few weeks ago and then it all melted by mid-afternoon, there have been days with temperatures in the high 70s, only to have it all plummet the next day into the 50s with rain. You know: Spring.…

Hope for sunshine; plan for rain

I used to find pithy sayings kind of annoying. Sure, they are easy to remember, but do people really say things out loud like, "Tact is the unsaid part of what you think." or  "Opportunity is not a lengthy visitor." or "I can't adult today." (Disclaimer: I have a sign on my desk that says that last one.)…

The effects of PBS (Parental Blindness Syndrome)

You are in the grocery store.



In front of you is a Mom and her son. He is jumping up and down, repeatedly saying her name, grabbing items off the impulse rack that she then has to wordlessly return, and genuinely showing some bratty behaviors. And she is calmly ignoring it all.…

They may drive you crazy, but you might live longer

I adore my son. I think he is brilliant, funny, quirky, sweet and kind. I love the way he wants to read on the couch next to me when he sees me reading, and the way he throws his whole body around mine in a big hug when I come home from work. He amazes me with how quickly he learns new concepts and the way he digs deep into subjects that fascinate him.…

Making the case for regular friendships

My son has an ever-rotating list of people whom he calls his best friend. One week it is a certain child in his class, the next week it is the kid who waits at the bus stop with him and then the week after that it will be someone in his scouts pack. For the most part, I am fine with this: As long as he is nice to everyone that is enough basis for a friendship for a seven-year-old.…

Starting the substance abuse conversation

A few nights ago at dinner (heavy topics always seem to come up at dinner), my son asked me why people would want to smoke. We talked about smoking being bad for people's health and all the negative effects it has. He was able to list a lot of them as we talked, but then he pressed a little further. "But if people know it is bad for them, then why do they start?"…

To sleep and forget about it

My little bear hears his alarm, turns it off and shuffles out of his bedroom to my desk where I write this blog. He scrambles into my lap, we snuggle and I ask him some basic questions to determine his morning mood.



(Bad mood days are generally turned around by showing my son pictures of cute baby animals or…

Moving your way to happiness

I recently went through my work calendar and made a whole lot of appointments with myself to move more. I figure that if it is on my work calendar I will be more likely to do it, and it will also prevent someone else from getting on my schedule if I show as booked. I then went the extra step (no pun intended) of recruiting someone at work to do this with me. (I have found that accountability helps me stay on task.)…

In An Exercise Rut? Try Something New

As human beings, we are definitely creatures of habit. We find a routine we are comfortable with, one that fits into our daily lives, and we happily stick to it. Oftentimes to the point where we don’t even realize we have fallen into a rut, and have become uninspired and unmotivated. Many people are afraid to try…

Me and my little shadow

I was looking through our family photo albums when my son plopped himself into my lap. (Full disclosure: I love that he still does that.) He was about three years old in that particular album and as we looked through the photos and I told him stories, I realized how much time he spent following me around. If I was in the kitchen, he was there. If I went into the laundry room, he was there. If I went on any chore, he was there. I recall…
