‘Tis the Season…for Accidents

‘Tis the season…for accidents. If your holidays are anything like mine, you’ll agree that this time of year is an accident waiting to happen! Ladders are pulled from storage to hang twinkling lights, tempting breakable ornaments are hung from trees just inches away from our inquisitive toddlers, and a plethora of flickering candles scented of cinnamon apple permeates […]

Lessons Learned – The First Year Of Cell Phones

I caved to the pressure last Christmas and convinced my husband that it was time to get our twelve year old daughters smartphones. They were two of the few sixth graders at their school without phones. Before sixth grade they were never alone, always either with my husband or me, a sitter, or at school.  I’d consistently said […]

The School Facebook Page and the Moms Who Post There

This year our daughters transferred from a small K-8 school to a large public middle school. To put the change in perspective, their current 7th grade class is about the same size as their entire old school. While the transition has been easier than I expected, it’s been strange to go from knowing most of the parents […]

Dear Mom – How Parenting Has Changed Since I Was A Kid

I recently attended a baby shower and found myself fascinated by some of the gifts – new baby products that did not exist when my almost thirteen year old twins were babies. I thought of my own mother, who passed away when my girls were not quite two, and how she would be astounded not only by […]

Living in the Moment

A friend posted this quote last night on Facebook: The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. … I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three […]

Making Mom Friends

I lived the first 34 years of my life in New Orleans, where my parents and their parents and their parents (and so on) lived their entire lives. I had no intention whatsoever of living anywhere else until I met my future husband on a vacation. He lived in Orlando. And so I moved to […]

Ditching Artificial with BodyArmor Sports Drinks

I have a confession, but my guess is I’m not alone: I do not drink enough. Well, nothing that hydrates me anyway. I have always had a hard time drinking enough water, and I really hate sports drinks. Their unpronounceable ingredients, artificial colors, and questionable “enhancers”? No thanks. I remember choking down that highlighter-colored stuff […]
