Sometimes, things just come together and you wind up having the perfect day. Sunday was like that as Sophie and I discovered that less than a mile down the road from where we have lived for the past two years, is an enormous reservation with fantastic hiking, walking, and biking trails.
If you are ever trying to figure out something to do in NJ (especially…

The past few weeks have been BUSY! We had Missy's "Holiday Extravaganza" at gymnastics... kinda of like a recital, I guess... the parents got to come down to the gym floor with them and see what they could do. It was so cute and she was so proud of herself! As she was jumping and flying down the trampoline, she would look at me and shout, "WOOK MOM!! I DOING IT!! I DOING IT!!" She even learned a new skill that the next level up does!…

We've all been there. You're getting ready to throw a get together with friends or party at your house. Maybe you don't have family to rely on nearby to take the kids to. Maybe you have numerous adult attendees who don't have reliable childcare and would like to bring their children. Maybe it's just easier to keep the kiddos at your house and not hassle with shuttling them around.
So, you decide to keep them around during your get together or party. It's not ideal; it can…Continue

I live in the Pacific Northwest. We, of course, are known for our notorious Fall and Winter rainfall. September and October this year were beautiful, with record breaking temperatures and historically low levels of rainfall. We are making up for it in November. Day after day, it's been nothing but rain. And I am not talking the occasional sprinkle or light shower. That cold, beating rain that comes with wind occasionally.
I have lived here most my life,…

You have to be a special kind of person to live in or near Washington, D.C. You can expect to pay a lot of money for the smallest amount of living space, you can never take parking for granted, and traffic is a guarantee. But Washington, D.C. is an area better suited for the type of person who likes to go out and do things. You can jog the National Mall, take advantage of one of the bike trails, or visit countless museums, exhibits, or other attractions. In addition, this is an area with no…Continue

I have enjoyed shopping for a very long time. Years ago it was combat boots, stone-washed jeans, and nerdy graphic tees in my shopping bags. Nowadays it’s Converse sneakers, a dry pair of pants, and more nerdy graphic tees. But my shopping bags aren’t for me anymore. They’re usually for my…Continue

Exercise; one of the few subjects I have little to say about. I have avoided regular or vigorous exercise my entire adult life. When I was in high school, I picked a maximum weight and vowed to diet and exercise if I ever reached it. Fortunately, the only time I ever reached the maximum weight, I was eight months pregnant.…Continue

Although I am a working mom, my toughest job is being a mom. Children are complicated and they don’t come with any instructions.
I taught for five years before switching careers in 2008. My students ranged in age from 3 to 14 and the subjects I taught ranged from Montessori to Spanish. Some of the more friendly parents would talk to me about their parenting issues, and I assumed that someday I would be well prepared to handle it. As a teacher, I had to deal with potty fights (use your…Continue

Do not beware: this review does NOT contain spoilers!
Do you NEVER have time to read anymore? Yeah, me neither. If I did, I don’t even know what I would read. I am so out of touch with books, I’m not even sure they still call them books. Reading a book is a big commitment for me. I not only invest my time, but I also invest a little bit of myself in the characters.
I first encountered The Hunger Games on Twitter. Next, my coworkers were talking about…Continue

I am not quite ready to let M. go to Daycare. I know intuitively she needs to and she is ready to but it seems I am not. So I announced to JB that we needed to wait till April after flu season had passed. Yes, yes a pathetic excuse but it was the best reason I could come up with faced with…Continue

Ladies, and only ladies, I am talking dirty to you. I am gonna talk about big-girl potties. Get the giggles out now because I am serious about this issue.
I know a lot of women (myself certainly not included) who brag about their cleanliness and organization. You probably know them too. They’re the ones reorganizing their pantries, sterilizing their refrigerators, and scrubbing floor tiles with a toothbrush before 7 am. They post this on Facebook too and usually ask for intervention…Continue

I am not a good cook. In fact, I’m a really bad cook. If you think my family is starving (or worse, eating the terrible things I cook), worry not. I married my husband specifically because he is a really good cook. Also, I love him.
Our first date consisted of conversation and a supreme pizza from Pizza Hut. Classy, right? In 8th grade, I earned the one and only ‘F’ of my academic career in home economics. It’s not as bad as you think; mom and dad thought it was funny and I was able…Continue
