You know the scenario. Balloons, cake, your kid waiting in anticipation on their friends to get to their birthday party. You assume, as most rational people would, that because hardly anyone "regretted" the birthday party invitation that just about everyone is going to show up for your child's birthday party. Your child is super excited and can't wait. Then three kids show up out of about twenty. Your child doesn't understand why the rest of their friends aren't there because…Continue

It happened to us. I never thought it would. We had escaped it so many times. But then last Tuesday when I answered my cell phone, I heard the words I did not want to hear. Especially right then. I was not at home and I had so much to do with no time to get it done. And just like that, all of my plans for the week were stopped. Everything I had planned just went out of the window.

We all do it. I know that I am guilty of this. We all do things that we don't want our kids to do. We all have TV shows that we watch that there is no way we would ever want our kids watching.

It's time for the Reading Fair at my third grader's school. I would like to be blase about this, but I have to face it, I just can't be. Reading fairs, science fairs, social study fairs, all school fairs bring out the worst mom competitions because let's be honest, do the 8 year olds really care that much about their project? No, but we do. Well, some of us…Continue

It's the new year and my house is still not cleaned, my closet is still a mess, my resolutions are not written, and my energy is on vacation. I had grandioise ideas about how my new year would start out: I would have a clean, organized house with a place for everything and everything in it's place.
