indoor playground

  Since I live in New England, and the ground is still covered with snow halfway through the month of March, my kids are getting a little stir-crazy, to say the least. And so am I. We live in a relatively small space, so during the wet, cold, windy, snowy months (which is about half of them), there isn’t a …

grocery shopping

I. Hate. Grocery shopping. I’ve written about how much I loathe it before, and my feelings have not changed in the slightest. It’s crowded, there are annoying displays in all the aisles, and they’re always changing the layout to try and trick us into buying stuff we usually don’t. I typically go grocery shopping on Fridays, as that’s when the new …

groundhog day

I equate being a parent to being in the movie Groundhog Day. You ask your kids to do the same things day in and day out, getting the same exact response every time, hoping desperately for things to change. But they don’t. Kids always act surprised and indignant when you tell them they have to do something like, say, brush their …

With Christmas and Hanukkah right around the corner, parents everywhere are probably doing what I’m doing right now – wondering what in the hell to buy for their kids! I find that the older my kids get, the more difficult it is to decide what to give them as presents. They have grown out of all the “little kid” toys, …

mom ninja

If you’ve ever watched the show American Ninja Warrior, you know the amazing feats those athletes conquer week after week. It’s SO inspiring, and while there are Moms out there who actually go out and train to become Ninja Warriors, I am not that Mom. So for Moms like me, I’ve come up with a more doable obstacle course comprised of …

dogs

When I was a new mother, I had several people make comments to me comparing their new puppy to my newborn human, person. This never made me angry, as it does some people, but it certainly made me a little “eye-rolly.” While I have never owned any dogs, at the time I had been around them enough to know that …

If you’re anything like me (and by that, I mean a procrastinator), then you haven’t started decorating your house for the fall season yet. I would love to decorate for every season and holiday that comes along, but as a busy Mom, it’s difficult to find the time. So I’ve come up with a few quick tips to decorate your home …

moms

I don’t normally share the specific details of my every day life, but over the past two weeks, I have been near bed-ridden. Coming down with what I thought was a 48-hour virus, but turned out to be pneumonia, has had me lying in bed for the better part of each day, trying to rest and allow my body to recoup. As …

school pictures

It’s that time of year again (at least, here in the U.S.). Time for parents to complain about having to shell out their hard-earned money for some head shots of their little cherubs, but eventually do it anyway. That’s right! It’s time for school pictures! I’ll admit that I used to purchase the cheapest package of school pictures they had …
