Mom Burnout – It’s Real

Maybe I am feeling this burnout more right now because of the time of year, or maybe I just haven’t given myself the space to revive recently, but I am in major burnout mode. I work from home and have two boys. On the majority of days I work (including work with the kiddos and […]

Easy Ways to Decorate for Fall (Even If The AC Is Still On)

Living in Florida all my life means being totally dependent on the calendar to tell when each season begins and ends. Fall and summer feel pretty much the same for the most part, except we are starting to see the end of the daily 4:00 sunshowers and it takes a little longer to be drenched […]

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 […]

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”. The responsibilities are rigorous, the schedule is demanding, and the sacrifices are great, but we wouldn’t change it for […]

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 […]
