Life Lessons

Life Lessons
When I think back to when I was a teenager, my mom and dad told me all kinds of things about life that I never listened to. I probably couldn’t tell you 3 things that they told me. It’s not because I didn’t listen, it’s because I thought it would never apply to me. I think about it and I wonder what lessons I have learned in [...]

Summer Bucket List

Summer Bucket List
This summer I wanted to nip those “I’m bored”s in the rear. I wanted to ┬ámake sure there were things to do that I could do on a whim with the kids or things they could do on a whim.

Private School: Did We Make A Mistake?

Private School: Did We Make A Mistake?
For the last seven years I have had at least one of my two children in a private school. When we made the decision to start my daughter (the first) in private school, the choice was solely based on the fact that the school was a parking lot away from my mother-in-law. I was raised in a Catholic family, but I attended public school. My husband was raised [...]

The Truth About Motherhood

The Truth About Motherhood
When I became a mother in 2001, I really thought I was prepared. I had been around babies, I read all those books, I bought everything I thought the baby needed, I stocked up on diapers like you could never buy them after the fact, I bought the most expensive bottles, I spent days washing clothes in the “baby soap”, I washed and sanitized [...]
