  • Waiting for Life to Begin

    When my kids were younger, I remember thinking, “As soon as they sleep through the night, things will get back to normal.” When the terrible twos (followed by the tantruming threes and WTF fours) kicked in, I prayed for strength to hang...

    Want To See Something REALLY Scary?

    I don’t think I’m ever one to second-guess other parents … until Halloween.

    On All Hallows Eve, I transform into Judge Judge-y McJudgerson.

    I am that mom. The one who cuts her kids off from trick-or-treating about the time they’re elbowing their way into puberty. I’m not following any developmental guidebook, and I haven’t looked up any studies on kids who later needed therapy because their moms put the kibosh on the candy corn prematurely. It’s just one of the many rules I was raised with that I have arbitrarily selected to enforce on my own progeny. READ MORE

    9 Ways To Keep Your House Illness-Free During Cold & Flu Season

    My children seem to be welcoming cold and flu season in with open arms. So far we’ve got chest colds, sinus infections, coughs, croup, pneumonia, and ear infections. Yay…..please note my lack of enthusiasm. With young kids around each other daily, eager to share their germs and not much else, the illness spreads pretty quickly. It doesn’t really matter how much I wash, clean, disinfect, and whatnot, I know those germs are going to spread regardless, but it’s good to know that everything is squeaky clean (besides the kid themselves).
