please come back

Dear School Year, Please come back! I know what I said before, but I swear I didn’t mean any of it! I wasn’t in my right mind! I was in a stupor from chaperoning too many field trips, and I didn’t know what I was saying. Please, please come back! I don’t know if I can take any more of the arguing, the …

school year

Dear School Year, Listen, we need to talk. I think it’s time for us to take a break. It’s not you! It’s me. I love you, and you know that. I love how you take my kids for seven hours a day, five days a week. You answer their infinite number of questions so I can get a little break. …

breastfeeding

If anyone reading this is pro-exclusive breastfeeding and/or anti-formula, you should probably stop reading now. It’s been over eight years since I had my first child. Breastfeeding was a hot-button topic then, and for reasons beyond my comprehension, it’s still something that is considered controversial and “newsworthy.” Personally, I started breastfeeding my children right away for one main reason – …

to-do list

I am a big fan of the to-do list. I make one for myself every week. I even write things on it that I’ve already done to make it seem like I’ve accomplished something (and also to remind myself that I did it, and do NOT need to do it again, which sometimes works).

Once you become a parent, you instantly realize that there are certain types of toys that you will most definitely hate, like anything that requires batteries and/or makes noise. Almost everything else falls into the category of toys that you will hate to love. Anything in the arts and crafts department makes the latter list for me, thanks to the folks …

save money

The New Year is always a time for people to reflect on how they can better themselves – exercise more, eat healthier, and save money are usually at the top of the list. I try to do all of these things throughout the year, oftentimes sporadically, but I find myself especially drawn to any article I see that focuses on …
