Letting Go of the Things That No Longer Serve You

Marriage due to pregnancy

M. 3. asks from Twentynine Palms - Do you think this still occurs in today's society? If you had to give a percentage, how many do you think marry due to pregnancy?

13 Things Moms of Boys Should Know

May 25, 2015

Having two daughters in no way prepared me for the birth of my son on the 3rd go round. The dirt, the mischief, the Urine. Dear God the urine. The best way to describe my handsome little beast would be to morph Dennis the Menace and Curious George. Buttons must be pushed, doors must be opened, remotes must be taken apart. Things must be broken and smashed merely to find out if they can be. Like a moth to a flame, if it is dangerous or it has the potential to be life threatening, he will be drawn to it….More

May 24, 2015

Recently, I hit a milestone. A big one.

Twenty years ago this year, I stood with 364 of my classmates on my high school’s football field and got my diploma. As I sat in that crowd on that field, under a setting sun, my white cap affixed upon my Jersey Girl Aqua Net-styled hair, we ruminated over the highs and lows of our four years in the hallowed halls of our high school. We looked forward to our futures, and swore we’d “stay the same!” and “never change!” Our futures were bright and we were excited. And our hair was huge. HUGE, I tell you….More

How to Get The Picture-Perfect Family Holiday Photo

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
