Losing or Gaining Your Identity?

When we are little girls, some of us dream of becoming moms, holding and loving our baby dolls while practicing to care for the real thing one day.  Others sit in front of the mirror holding the hairbrush microphone, imagining themselves as pop stars, while there are those that sit for hours and draw up beautiful sketches of clothing hoping to one day become a designer.

Whatever the dream, from the time we have pigtails and bows in our hair, we are attracted to certain careers.  I…

It's Not Their Fault...It's YOURS!!!

It’s really easy to blame your child when their behavior is less than stellar.  Right now in my house, my seven year old and five year old seem to feel they are entitled to everything and anything.  I have given them the “you need to be grateful for everything you have” speech, along with the “you need to earn these things, not just expect them” speech, and the ever popular, “money doesn’t grow on trees” talk.  I constantly feel like a broken record and after pondering why my words of wisdom…

Suit Up...It's Summertime!

What is the deal with women and bathing suits?  (That was a rhetorical question.)  Why are we SO embarrassed to be seen in one in front of our friends?  Guys could not care less and are the first ones in the pool after the kids jump in.  Yet we sit in the heat, covered, knowing our swim suit will never see the light of day,…

What Kind of Mother are YOU?

There are many different kinds of mothers.  Ones that are fun and silly, some that are strict and rigid, those that are selfless and compassionate, others that are perfectionists and sticklers, and moms who are in the process of learning what defines their style of motherhood.  For me, I fall into all of these categories, depending on the…

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.…
