I think most of us struggle from time to time with excess baggage that weights us down. Not just personal baggage, but also too much clutter in our homes. Clutter causes stress. Your subconscious sees your junk every time you walk into the room. Your brain takes it as a sign that you are exhausted, […]

The SAHM has us working moms at a disadvantage at all 3 days weekends. They have the daily schedule down to a “t” and don’t miss a beat. Not so for us working moms. In the past, we built up days off as these amazing events of pure fun with kids. Then reality hits. Adjusting […]
Ladies, It is time for loud music, grease-laden junk food, rides that you fear will fall apart with your precious children in tow, cheap plastic toys, and chain smoking attendants that bark orders at you or your beloved youngsters. Street Fair Time! Maybe where you’re from, it’s called a carnival. Or you don’t have such […]
Last Friday, I took my sons to be tested for ADHD/ADD and anxiety. One of the funnier things that came out of the day was when the therapist asked if the boys had different relationships with their sister. My reply. “Yes, definitely. The oldest gets along with his sister and the younger one is exactly like […]
Yesterday, both my sons decided that they just had to have this yo-yo that the school was selling for some fundraiser. Yes, I’m that mom that used to feel obligated to participate in fundraisers.

There is no right time to become a mom. We all become moms when we become moms. I can’t say that I was a better mother at 37 than I would have been at 25 when I started trying to get pregnant. That seems impossibly young at this point! Did life experiences help? Maybe. It is […]
How do you know that you suffer from mommy guilt? It’s not something that you can type into the symptom checker on WebMD and get an accurate diagnosis. Wouldn’t life be easy if it was like typing in-ankle is red and swollen; sore to the touch; can’t put weight on it. Did you fall from […]
Here is a quick list to help you determine if you are in need of some decluttering. You can’t get into your son’s dresser drawer because it is too full. When you finally tug it open without pulling it over on yourself, you are unable to find a pair of jeans without holes in the […]
I think the hardest part of being a parent is seeing your children hurting, sad, or in pain. I don’t know if that will ever change as they get older. Maybe, it will get easier. Time will tell. I’m not talking about a stubbed toe or a tantrum over not getting their way. I’ve overcome […]
