7 Childhood Milestones That Are Actually Worth Celebrating

There are some milestones in childhood that mothers look forward to with great anticipation, and others we look forward to with a fair amount of dread. There are the usual suspects, sleeping through the night, able to feed themselves, first steps, first days of school. We usually mark these milestones with a little fanfare. Write it in the baby book! Take a photo! Share it with friends & family!

This post is not about any of those types of milestones. READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - No More Epic Fails

    No More Epic Fails

    Recently, I’ve heard mothers throwing around the term “epic fail” in regard to their parenting efforts. It is supposed to be a funny/sarcastic way to look at various minor disasters, but it’s the self-deprecating aspect of the phrase that I’m feeling some aversion to.

    For instance, say a mom takes her kids out for lunch, and one of the kids drops food on the floor, while the other one cries, while the tired mom shovels in a couple mouthfuls of food before abandoning mission; she might refer to the outing as an Epic Fail. READ MORE

    And The World’s Worst Mom Award Goes To…

    Did you ever have one of those mornings, that despite your best intentions you screwed up and you are guilt-ridden the rest of the day? I recently had a day like that. It all started with a 90-minute school delay. I actually like a school delay on occasion; it gives both me and my kids a chance to catch up on some most-needed sleep – especially my little night owl. Last week brought an overwhelmingly large amount of homework for my 5th grader and she had been working diligently to finish it each night. READ MORE
