skills

There are many skills you acquire once you become a parent. Some of them are obvious and well-known to most people, like Moms ears that can hear the tiniest of whimpers in a deep sleep, or growing eyes in the back of their head, while Dads become very adept at sleeping through literally anything. But the skills that I speak …

Spring is FINALLY here, which means it’s time for parents to open up those windows, let some fresh air in, and remind your neighbors why they like the winter so much.

birthday parties

When I was a kid, birthday parties were nothing but a group of your friends coming over to your house to play, eat some food, sing “Happy Birthday,” and have some cake.

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, …

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 …

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 …
