Time to "Face" Getting Older

We focus so heavily on our children’s birthdays and how fast they are growing up and getting older.  Newsflash…that means we are getting older too!  As my husband is about to turn 40 and I am only a few short years away, I have been focusing more and more on what it really means to be getting older.  In our twenties, my husband and I always talked about what 40 would look like.  When you are 21, 40 might as well be 70.  Not sure how it…

March Parenting Tip: Time to Get Stricter with your Sitter’s Pictures!

When we leave our children in the hands of a sitter, we typically go through a checklist of items, to ensure we are all on the same page.  Some examples may include discussing bedtime routines, going over any necessary medications, emergency contact information, how late we might be out, etc.  We rarely think about social media and how it affects our sitter and more importantly, our child.…

Can We Be Too Present?

As mothers we are always wondering if we are present enough in our children’s lives. Lately, I have actually pondered if it’s possible to be too present???

As a stay-at-home mother (who works from home), I take my “job” very seriously and put 110% into parenting my children (and my husband).  I make sure I am involved in their school and know their teachers well, drop them off and pick them up every day, know who their friends are, invest the time to tailor…

The Mommy Masters January 2014 Parenting Tip-Get Organized & Get your Kids to Help!

The new year is here, which means it’s time to get motivated and get organized!  Easier said than done, right?  Well, I feel your pain.  Having the kids home from school has left my house in shambles and very little time for myself or to get anything done around the house.  As I pass my laundry room, I can feel the evil stares coming from my heaping piles of laundry awaiting to be washed.  As I stroll by my office,…

Is your House Gender Appropriate? Why?

 Are you buying gender appropriate gifts this holiday season?

As the mother of three boys, whose husband travels for work, I spend A LOT of time with my little men. It would only make sense that they have a lot of feminine exposure. If I come home with a new pair of shoes, they want to see them and tell me how cool they are. When a commercial comes on…

MAIN LOGO WITH MM

Mommy Masters welcomes Stephen Greene, a dad who brings us his perspective on raising a bilingual family.

What’s your mother tongue?  Mine’s English, and it is probably called ‘mother tongue’ at least in part because traditionally the main care giver would have been your mother or another woman, and you would have received most of…

Some women view cleaning up as a chore, but I view it as a step by step process that is organized, effective and actually relaxing (crazy I know).  Allow me to explain:

Here is  picture of my kitchen after dinner, which pretty much looks like a disaster.  There are dishes everywhere, items to be stored and put away, dirty napkins, counter tops that are littered with cutting boards, grease and the remnants of a delicious meal.…
