Cue the red carpet, marching band, and fireworks, y'all, cause today is my birthday! Yippee! But let's be real here, people -- I'm a mom, and we all know what that means. I'll be schlepping screaming kids from Point A to Point B, scrubbing skid marks out of little undies, and turning to my friend Google to help…

** Jet lag is not really the vacation souvenir I had in mind.
** Even the eyes in the back of my head have bags underneath them.

If your husband tries to talk you into flying the red-eye with your kids at the end of a family vacation, don't fall for it. He may try to reassure you that your kids will sleep on the plane, and all will be fine. But trust me, it will be anything but fine. And the only person who will be sleeping on the plane will be your…

I cannot be the only one....who has been with a group of people when your child decides to show a less than polite side of their personality, leaving you laying down the law in a little tougher of fashion than usual, much to your chagrin. This is exactly what happened while we were on our big family Spring Breakin' vacation.…

Going to the grocery store is definitely not my idea of a good time. Sure it's nice when your kids are FINALLY old enough that you don't have to drag them with you every time you need to run out for a loaf of bread. A few minutes of alone time can do wonders for the sanity. However, a quick trip to the store can very…

I have recently been talking to one of my close friends regarding parenting struggles he is having with his teenagers. The topic of protecting the parent-teen relationship in the context of setting boundaries and consequences has come up several times. I began to think about how to negotiate the boundaries and consequences all families must have to function effectively, within the parent-teen relationship.
In my friend’s case, he is concerned if he is too strict or pushes too hard he…Continue

Two travel soccer leagues, piano, gymnastics, horseback, theater and various school activities. And sometimes a lacrosse clinic. Or basketball. Or we may take a cooking class some place.
Sometimes when I write it all down, it freaks me out a bit, and I ask myself, “Are we doing too much? Do my kids have enough time to play, or breathe?”
And then I…Continue

When I hear the word Campbell’s my mind goes back to a simpler time. A time when the biggest decision of the day was what type of cereal I should have for breakfast. When my day would consist of play and not coming home till the street light came on, when there were no iPhones, emails to check, or bills to pay. When I hear the word Campbell’s I think of childhood and warm tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches, warm cheesy chicken casseroles, etc. Campbell’s was definitely a…Continue

It's no secret that parenting is hands-down one of THE hardest jobs on the planet. There are days when you love it and days when you want to turn in your notice and walk right out the door. The pay is…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who has been mid-argument only to stop and realize that the argument isn’t really about what the bickering is focused on, but rather something else all together. This was the case when the Hubs and I were arguing about the Sonny Boy’s upcoming T-ball schedule.
The Hubs wants Sonny Boy to play T-ball, he…

I cannot be the only one…who completely understands the need for school fundraising, but hates it just the same. During our first year enrolled in a public school there has been a fundraiser of one sort or another happening every month, whether our children are being asked to peddle wares from a catalogue or participate in a hoola-hoop marathon, there has been no lack of fundraising activities.
This list consist of my top 5 reasons I loathe school…

I cannot be the only one....who is a Mama to a child that believes they are the boss in your house. Giving directions in place of taking directions has become a normal Sonny Boy'ism, whether it be when the dog needs to be walked or what I will serve for dinner, his two cents are thrown around freely. Sonny Boy's bossiness is especially in full swing when he's playing, or rather supervising, with me or his dad.
I've seen this bossy behavior in other homes as well, like the time I was…Continue
