One Recipe, Three Meals

One Recipe, Three Meals

Whether you work outside the home or from inside the home, there's nothing better than to smell the wonderful aroma of your dinner cooking and to know that all you have to do is grab a plate and fork. Sigh. There are a plethora…

Want to know my secret?

At a playdate with friends the other day one of the moms turned to me and asked what my secret was? For a moment I stood perplexed. Why whatever did she mean!? Did she want to know if I had found the fountain of youth? Did I really look that good? I just started using a new shampoo; maybe I was rocking a sweet do? I couldn’t help but smile as I inquired,” what secret?”.

Packing For Tomorrow

Packing for tomorrow

Last night, the kids and I had the opportunity to pack some lunches for the West Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) organization.

Kids and Cleaning -- Old fashioned methods that work

Back when I was growing up, our home was always clean. I don't mean tidy. I mean practically white-glove-test-clean. Some used to call my mother "The White Tornado." She'd just shrug and laugh it off. The thing is, though, I don't recall ever seeing her spend endless days cleaning. In fact, most days in the summertime…

The Secret to Getting Your Kids to Do What You Want

IMG_2277

I watched her seamlessly round up her four children as they splashed, swam, and dove in the pool.

She called out their last name to summon the two oldest boys, who were 50 yards away and in line for the slides. She motioned with her pointer finger to the middle daughter, who was paddling away and whispered something to her youngest daughter, who was romping in…

The Empty Crib Syndrome

I have really been in a funk lately. My mind has been a whirlwind of emotions & thoughts. Ever since my youngest, my baby, turned 4years old I have been giving myself a hard time.

He works outside the home.  I do all the household chores, all things clothes and food…
