My Mom Fuel

When I was a little girl my mom always had a STRONG cup of coffee with her. She had a coffee (splash of milk and a little sugar) first thing in the morning. Then there was a cup of coffee next to her as she talked on the phone, smoking a Newport (yeah 80’s!), and doodling […]

Scaling Back Kids’ Activities

Growing up I had a close friend who swam competitively. She and her four brothers all swam on the same team. At the time, I felt sorry for her because she wasn’t allowed to choose her own sport or activity. Now as an adult looking back, I think her mother was brilliant. Five kids and only one activity at […]

The New Year’s Resolutions Pretty Much All Moms Should Have

We all come from different backgrounds and beliefs; we have different perspectives on parenting and family dynamics, but many of us struggle with similar obstacles because we share one thing in common: that title of “mom”.

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 […]

Flatbread – It’s What’s for Dinner

This is “the Summer of Flatbreads” in my kitchen. I’ve rediscovered the simplicity and diversity of flatbreads for dinner. Here’s my most recent flatbread creation. I started by spreading jarred bruschetta sauce over the flatbread. Next I sautéed finely chopped Vidalia onions, sliced portobello mushrooms, and chopped tricolor peppers in olive oil, adding the mixture over the […]
