Losing or Gaining Your Identity?

When we are little girls, some of us dream of becoming moms, holding and loving our baby dolls while practicing to care for the real thing one day.  Others sit in front of the mirror holding the hairbrush microphone, imagining themselves as pop stars, while there are those that sit for hours and draw up beautiful sketches of clothing hoping to one day become a designer.

Whatever the dream, from the time we have pigtails and bows in our hair, we are attracted to certain careers.  I…

On Being Kind

Kindness

This “Mommy Wars” thing is a real. This term was first coined to describe the “us versus them” attitude of Stay at Home Moms and Career Moms; but really, it has become so much more. I feel like nowadays, everyone has an opinion about how you’re raising your child, and how you can do it better. And now that we’re all online, posting on Mom…

It's Not Their Fault...It's YOURS!!!

It’s really easy to blame your child when their behavior is less than stellar.  Right now in my house, my seven year old and five year old seem to feel they are entitled to everything and anything.  I have given them the “you need to be grateful for everything you have” speech, along with the “you need to earn these things, not just expect them” speech, and the ever popular, “money doesn’t grow on trees” talk.  I constantly feel like a broken record and after pondering why my words of wisdom…

End of the School Year Madness

1340509283247_6049743

Maybe it's just me, but the end of the school year always seems to bring with it a boatload of unwanted stress.  Finding a "place" for all the papers that are sent home, trying not to drown in the flood of never-ending emails, buying the gazillion and one thank you gifts -- IT NEVER EVER…

Cleaning Out the Closet

This weekend, I finally tackled something that I've been needing to do for a long time - I finally cleaned out my closet.

I've had some half hearted attempts in the past year, where I pack away some things that are out of date or torn, but I never truly sat down and thought about what I actually use. My closet was still filled with tiny clubbing dresses (ermigad, the shame), old corporate clothes (that I have not worn in over a decade) and things that were not age appropriate…

Ever have one of those days where every-freaking-thing seems to go wrong?  And no matter what you try to do, it all just turns to crap?  (If you haven't, then it's safe to say that I kinda hate you, but I digress....)  Well, yesterday was one of THOSE kind of days, where if I would have looked up, I…

Power of the Pen!

Some people would say that the cost of silence is free. Those people are not mothers. There is always a cost. Like when your toddler is having a full on tantrum during the 2nd hour of a 14 hour trip so you give him the remaining ½ of a chocolate bar knowing full well that it will leave the worst mess on him, the car seat, the car, etc. but your sanity and that of your husbands is well worth the mess.  Or maybe you plopped junior in front of the TV…
