Growing up, we had some neighbors who I will lovingly describe as hippies. The wife wore funky printed natural fiber clothes and always smelled a bit funky too — I later learned she was a fan of patchouli. Her husband wore tie-dye t-shirts that expressed his love for the Grateful Dead and often sported socks […]
Only three ingredients needed for these super delicious, quick, kid-friendly cookies! I love teaching my kids how to cook and bake, but I’m also a complete control freak in the kitchen, especially with multiple kids in the kitchen. These cookies are perfect for involving kids in baking, particularly if you are a control freak in […]
If there’s one thing I do well and do often, it’s procrastinate. Okay, so that’s not always a desirable skill, but it’s not all bad. A few years ago I worked this trait to my advantage to score the best family vacation we’ve ever had. I had an idea in mind of where we would […]
I’m lying in bed with my five-year-old daughter, trying to get her to think about going to sleep when all she wants to do is talk. She’s tossing her arms wildly around and talking as fast as possible when she announces that one day she wants to be a photographer just like her mommy. She’s […]
As moms, we all love a night off from cooking dinner, and it is even better when we can go out for a good deal! We have talked about Kids Eat Free before, and now we are taking on the list of where you can get a good bite to eat for a good price. […]
Growing up I always thought I was pretty good with my money. As soon as it was legal, I had a job so I could afford the things I wanted. My family wasn’t poor by any means but we weren’t wealthy. We lived in an affluent area and during the winter, most of my friends […]
Sojourner Truth. Susan B. Anthony. Elizabeth Stanton. Gloria Steinem. Sandra Day O’Connor. Sally Ride. These women, among countless other heroines, have fought long and hard for something that never should have been a question: equal rights. They helped us win the right to vote, implement Title IX, hold high-powered positions, and fuel confidence and #girlpower. […]
How often do you show up for a play date at a friend’s house, and they immediately apologize for the mess? Let’s be honest: their house is never not clean; it’s just that they have kids who’ve left a trail of toys like breadcrumbs through their house. So long ago, I resolved to no longer apologize […]
I took a turn and decided to make a huge change in my life that would affect my son. I didn’t know how things would work out, sometimes I still don’t, but so far I’ve been managing. But honestly, I wouldn’t change it for anything because I met my mom-mate, my son found a best […]
1. SLEEP Leave her alone. Like seriously, don’t wake her on that precious Sunday morning for anything big or small, if sleep is what she’s craving. You can figure it out, we believe in you, and really there are very few things that can’t be unraveled, replaced, or stain treated once she’s up anyway, so […]
Note to Self: (A poem for the Unicorn Moms) No pressure. There is no pressure to be the best mom ever Be the best mom you can be (.) There is no pressure to have all the things done Do what you can do one-day-at-a-time There is no pressure to do it […]
My five and a half year old daughter has a lot of interests. My husband and I do our best to let her try them out. In the last two and a half years, she’s played soccer, tee ball, taken swimming lessons, and started weekly gymnastics classes. When she eagerly came home from preschool recently […]
