5 Reasons I Loathe School Fundraisers

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…

Fair or Homogenized Holidays?

I cannot be the only one...who wonders if removing any real discussions of religious holidays from our children's public schools, in an attempt to not push religion and/or not create an uncomfortable learning environment (I'm not really sure that either of these are the reasons), is limiting our children's…

Breastfeeding In Public Helps Increase Awareness and Boosts Confidence For Other Mom’s Who Plan On Breastfeeding Her Baby

I couldn’t believe some of the posts that I have seen where people were bashing nursing mothers for choosing to breastfeed her baby in public.  Most of the posts that I saw said that breastfeeding was gross and they were complaining that they were offended because they saw a mother breastfeeding her baby in public (mostly in restaurants).  When we were created,…

PottyCovers Review and Giveaway

It never fails. Every shopping trip, as soon as my kids notice the "Restroom" sign at a store, they suddenly have "go to the bathroom badly"! I have two boys, so it's supposed to be easy right? Wrong! My 4 year old has asked for privacy before. Thinking he was just going to stand and handle his business like a "normal" guy, I found him undressing himself completely, because he's more comfortable going to the bathroom naked. Goodness, we're not home! Sometimes he sits, sometimes he…

"Are you watching these children?!"

. . . was the question from the very irritated and judgmental man who almost ran my children over in the Target parking lot!  “YEEEEEEEESSSS!” was my defensive and embarrassed response. 

It’s Spring Break and my “oh sh*t, I’m a stay at home mommy” hives have kicked in.  I have to entertain the children all day and maintain some semblance of my sanity.  It’s gonna be a long week.  But, on the bright side, Camp Runamuk is in full swing.

Here’s what I learned about…

The Day My Daughter Spared WAY More Than A Square

You know you're up a shit creek when your kid comes out of a public bathroom after ten LONG minutes and says, "Uh, can you come in here and help me, Mama?"  You might as well just take a deep breath, roll up your sleeves, and prepare for the worst.  I speak from experience because I dealt with this very same scenario over the weekend when I secured my status…

Do You Put Your Makeup On In Public?

Earlier this week, I was waiting to pick up my son from preschool and in addition to my two year old, I had In the car with me my brother-in-law. Apparently, it was quite entertaining for him to see me putt my makeup on while we waited in the parking lot of the school. He said something like "Man, you will just put your makeup on anywhere, huh?" My immediate thought was "Uhh, yeah...why not?" Then I starting thinking that maybe that is a weird thing to do. So I made…

Why I chose public school

Last year at this time, I was tearing my hair out, in tears trying to figure out where Isaac was going to school for kindergarten. He had just come out of an amazing integrated preschool, where he had been for 3 years. I wasn't handing my crazy boy off to just any school. I had only a few weeks left to make a choice. I had options for Isaac to go to private school, public school or even… Continue

Traveling to Germany with a Little Boy (and Breastfeeding in Public)

The second day of our visit to my girlfriend’s farm we spent at the local pool. For such a small town in the country, they have a very sophisticated pool with tons of water features, and the boys were in and out of the water for four hours. Since I didn’t have a bathing suite and had just burned my skin to a crisp on Nantucket, I was in no mood to swim, so Karen “swam” with the boys and I took… Continue
