Breakfast-Smoothie-Popsicles-2

Breakfast Smoothie Popsicles

Every parent knows how creative you have to be in order to make sure your kids are eating healthy. The last few week my little girl has been addicted to popsicles. I’ve even caught her going to the freezer in the morning and try sneaking one for breakfast! I didn’t even know she could open […]

Their Space

  I’m conflicted about the state of my daughters’ bedrooms. They are thirteen and their rooms are a perpetual state of mess. One occasionally gets tired of her own mess and picks up. Her twin does not. I have always been a little OCD. Well, OK, maybe a lot. As a child my bedroom was […]

SIBLING RIVALRY

“If there’s no fire, flood or blood – work it out.”   “If there’s no fire, flood or blood – work it out.”  When I first heard my sister tell her kids that, it cracked me up. She’s 6 years younger than me but has been a mom a lot longer than I have. We […]

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 […]

5 tips on how NOT to be a helicopter mom

Okay, look – let me preface this by saying, I’m really in NO position to be giving anyone parenting advice. Not only have I been a mother for less than 3 years, but I’m only kind of good at it. I keep my kid fed, clothed and relatively happy but everything else is hit or […]

I have a Christmas baby…. now what?

My little guy was due on January 7th and I thought, perfect! He will be here after the holiday craziness is over… But on Christmas Eve of 2004, I woke up at 3:30 AM feeling horrible. Sure enough, I was in labor and I could NOT believe it! At 8:21am on Christmas morning (after barely […]
