Five Parenting Mistakes I'm Doomed to Repeat

April 17, 2014

I consider myself to be a fairly quick learner. I’ve memorized the names and faces of every engine from Thomas and Friends, all the cars in Disney’s Cars and Cars 2, about 40 species of dinosaur, and more space facts than I could list here. Keeping up with my three year old is better than Sudoku for keeping the mind sharp. It helps to counteract the brain cell death from chronic sleep deprivation, excessive whining, and Mickey Mouse Club House….More

Slowly but surely my various different social media news feeds are being cluttered with the latest Easter ideas; crafts, baked goods, clothes, etc. I like a good Easter craft or new idea as much as the next person, but today, I saw something I didn’t like. No sir, I didn’t like it one little bit – the color coordinated Easter egg hunt.More


Teenage maturity

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot. The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
