My husband once shared an interesting observation about our generation's way of parenting. He said that we tend to make changes for our children based off what we didn't like about our own childhoods:…

The biggest shock after having our son is that after four days the hospital was letting us take him home. Continue
Despite the baby prep classes and recovery time from my C-section and the video the nurses insisted that we watched, it seemed really soon. As in: We don't know what we are doing yet - are you sure you…

My son likes to tell me that when he grows up he is going to get a house about a block or two away and he and his wife will ride their bikes over every day to eat dinner with us. And although I am not sure what his future wife will think of that plan, it sounds perfectly reasonable to me. I would never prevent my son from moving away from me, but I would be thrilled to have him within easy visiting range in adulthood.… Continue

Unfortunately, you cannot decide you want a divorce one day and finalize the filing on the next. The process takes time and will likely involve several meetings and considerations to resolve asset division, custody considerations, and alimony. In the state of California, it will always take at least six months after you file a divorce petition to receive a… Continue

When I left the family nest to get settled into my first job, my Mom gave me some advice. She told me some things about my paycheck and finances, she gave me a few words of wisdom when dealing with my coworkers and when I got frustrated with that job, she told me to stick with it until I found something new.…

Over the last few months, I have had several different people ask me if I’m a photographer, as in a “professional photographer.”
That’s rather flattering because, no, I’m not. I’m a mom with a nice camera who loves to take pictures of her children, and while I have been really… Continue

I have returned to my Mother's nest twice in my life. The first time was right after college, when I stayed there for three months to search for my first job. The second time was when job situations caused me to live apart from my husband and I was pregnant and no one wanted me living on my own. I was fortunate that both times my Mom and Step-Dad were there to take me in and take care of me.… Continue

There are many challenges associated with ADHD, and often parents and children alike become frustrated and overwhelmed by addressing those challenges. Children with ADHD impact their siblings and parents unintentionally, but parents have the power to help their children focus their energy in positive ways and control and reduce their symptoms. Here are a few “outside the box” tips for doing so:
Be positive. Addressing behaviors and challenges associated with ADHD is… Continue

Who says parenthood fries your brain? On a new episode of MomCave LIVE, we talk about the Science of Parenthood with Jessica Ziegler. Jessica (along with her blog partner Norine Dworkin-McDaniel) is the mama behind the illustrated parenting blog, inspired by the madness of raising kids, which even science can’t understand.

If you’re anything like me, you probably fantasized for much of your life about having a little mini me one day.
Yes, there’d be a partner in the equation, but their genes wouldn’t matter much. Or something like that.
Of course, the reality of parenthood is that our…

While spending some time wandering on the internet, I came across this picture on Mseffie.com. At first glance, I noticed that they are using scrabble pieces and a globe to get their message across. Cute. Artsy. I really enjoy the antique effect they used to bring the picture together. However, before I could click on to another page, the message caught my attention again. Rather than the letters that spelled "Go There," I saw "Just Go Already!"
How many times have… Continue

They warn you about the pain of childbirth. They even express all the different means for managing said pain and in such depth that there are literally tons of books written on the topic! Ways to manage the pain often include Lamaze, water therapy, epidural, hypnosis, etc. I opted for hypnosis when this little lady graced us with her presence.…

Times have changed and so are the ways of Parenting. Thanks to the fast paced life especially in metros...where youngsters look for all the reasons to escape from Marriage. Even when they are finally tied into this relationship with the pressures from friends and family ....they run away from the responsibility of becoming parents and avoid it as long as they can until they again fall prey to the pressures of family and society.
Due to the changing lifestyle, Most of the… Continue

I wrote a blog post earlier in the week on shows from our time that has been forgotten and our children must watch. Weeeelllllll, I am on vacation in Alabama visiting family. My cousin, Isabell age 10, came to me with an idea. She stated that since I wrote a blog about shows children must watch, it is only right that I write a blog about children’s movies that Parents… Continue

When you first think of the word "date," it's easy to assume that it involves two individuals roughly around the same age who are in some type of romantic relationship, whether new or seasoned. While this may be true, "dates" can include kids, too. (preferably not in addition to the two individuals in a romantic relationship- that's what babysitters are for!) Special outings with just one child and… Continue
