STOP !!!!! DON'T KISS THAT BOO BOO !!!!!!

I worked in the optical industry for more than 20 years and I have seen children with minor to severe eye problems.  One of the more common problems was pinkeye. 

We love our children and hate to see them suffer.  We want to kiss their boo-boos away so that they feel better.  Today, I watched a woman kiss her son on the eye while he itched and rubbed.  It appeared to be pinkeye.  I know what you are thinking. Eewwww!  I felt the same way but I understood.

 I explained to the mom…

Empowered By Choices

There have been women in my life that have impacted me in many ways. I have heard their stories and been empowered by their choices. These women have triumphed and failed.  Let's commit ourselves to supporting each other when we succeed and when we fail.

“There is a secret in our culture, And it’s not that childbirth is painful, It’s that women are strong.”

The Best Valentine's Day Ever !!

I spent this Valentine’s Day with my oldest daughter while my husband spent it with our youngest. We had a great evening. She assisted me with a shopping event while updating me on the latest happenings in her life. I listened to her and thought…my daughter is now a woman. I pray that she finds a love that touches her soul the way her father has touched mine and the way my father touched my mother’s soul. My parents were married more than 50 years when my father…

Knowing When to Fold

What a week.  Last weekend I had a shopping event in Columbus GA and was noticeably tired. My trusty assistant and baby girl "J" was an enormous help to me when we returned home.  I thought I might be coming down with something so I told "J" I needed to rest.  Well, it was a little more serious than needing a short respite. I HAD THE FLU! and it knocked me on my butt. I thought to myself, I do not have time for this.  Well, it did not matter if I had time or not.  I folded hard.  I mean the…

DO NOT FEEL GUILTY.

The last 3 months have been a whirlwind. Kids out of school for the summer.  Do I need to say more! : - )  "J" is high maintenance folks and thinks she needs to be busy every minute of the day.  With that said I had to put on my Fab Mom gear tis summer and get moving.  Karate, beach activities, tennis, festivals, pool activities and the list goes on...... Many of you will appreciate why mommies need mommytime : - ).  Some of us feel guilty about wanting to spend time by ourselves. DO NOT…

"I am NOT made of money!"

I heard it from my mother a million times when I was a little girl and especially when I became a teenager. "I am not made of money." That may have been the case but I wanted what I wanted when I wanted it. I just didn't get it then.  My mother taught me financial responsibility the hard way.  As Fab Moms it is important to teach our children financial responsibility and the value of money. It will pay off in the end. Needless to say, I did not…

Fab Mom Summertime Bucket List

 

 It's Summertime and like me many of you are asking yourselves - " What am I going to do with the kids this summer?" or "What do I want to do in order to achieve some peace and tranquility for for myself?"  I know it's hard and the time is either flying by or moving at a snail's pace when the kids have nothing to do.  How about a Summertime…

Where Did The Time Go ?

 I have not posted on my blog or to the fab mom facebook page in awhile.  Where do I start? The past 2 months are somewhat of a blur. My oldest daughter graduated from college this month and I have been on a rollercoaster that would not stop.  There have been parties, graduation preparation, tears, apartment hunting,more tears, car shopping and even more tears....Why the tears you may ask?  My baby has grown up to be a…

'Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show': Moms Walk The Runway At Fashion Week

NEW YORK -- Forget the usual vacant model stare. It was smiles and high fives with Iman around this time last year as real moms of all shapes and sizes took over New York Fashion Week, working a runway Thursday with strollers and pregnant tummies, looking chic for everything from school drop-off to date night.



They walked in the first-ever "Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show," organized by two of their own at the city's Library…

We Need To Pray For Our Children

I enjoy meditation and quiet time to reflect not just on my life but my life with my husband and children.  We want the best for our children and want them to have contented lives. As moms we want our children to be wise and not make foolish decisions. We want them to treat their peers with respect and not disregard. We want them to be modest and not arrogant. Bottom line - We want our children to live  "Happily Ever After."  Well, I'm not sure if there is such a thing.  However, I…

READY, SET, DE-STRESS

Happy New Year Fab Moms!!!



   For many 2012 was a slowing moving blur and for others it flew by at warp speed. For some 2012 was filled with 60 hour work weeks; play dates; taking the kids to lacrosse, basketball, soccer or football practice. We chased our little ones through the mall, endured a visit from the mother-in-law, and tried to decipher 5th grade geometry.  Well, you get the idea.  The life of a fab mom can be stressful and the stress can be consuming.  With…

Establishing Traditions

Last week as I frantically prepared for Christmas day It dawned on me that I was missing out on what Christmas was really about. I was somewhat ashamed and angry with myself for spending hours in the stores only to return home absolutely exhausted and irritable. This was not me at all.  I enjoy the serenity of the holidays and spending quality time with my…

SUNDAY SUPPER - HUG YOUR CHILD

This evening when we sat down to supper my 10 year old daughter asked my husband and me about the shooting in Connecticut.  I was shocked as my husband and I had decided to wait until this evening to discuss it with her because we knew she would hear about it in school on Monday morning. In a matter of seconds  I grabbed "J" and began to hug her. "Mommy, I can't breath"  she said as she gasped for air. I was terrified for her to leave my side.  I begin to reflect internally on September 11,…

Encourage Your Child To Volunteer

Several days ago "J" and I spent a few hours volunteering. We were making a difference while sharing quality time together.  Volunteering is selfless and gets kids away from the mentality that everything is about them. Rather than starting out their lives with a view of entitlement, they are more likely to have a greater understanding of responsibility, compassion,  and tolerance. "J" has  met with people who have different cultural views, values, and economic circumstances.  Find volunteer…

Have you ever had one of those days? You know-those days when you feel like a broken record.  When you have to repeat yourself over and over and over and.......okay, I won't drone on.  I think it best to illustrate just how the day went. Check out thisYouTube video and please try to keep up.  It's evening now and the rest of the family is settling down for the…
