The Hardest Part About Being a Working Mom

I’m at work and my phone vibrates. I anxiously look at the caller ID information displayed. Crap. My fears are confirmed; the incoming call is from one of my sons’ schools.  “Hello?” I manage to get out as worst-case scenarios run through my mind…

Keep Calm and Carry On Gets a Makeover

I have accepted this into my life and let me tell you, it’s transformative. It helps keep a smile on my face and focus on my priorities and my people. This is not about ignoring injustice or letting people treat you poorly. It is about letting go of the little stuff.

5 Things I’m Loving This Winter

I’m trying to be more positive this winter so for my post for February I decided to focus not on the people I love (since I love them every day, not just on that ridiculous made up holiday) but on some of the things I’m loving right now that are helping me push through this season of misery.

Blossoming in my Late 30’s

Could it be that in my last year of my 30’s I’m finally comfortable with who I am? I think so. Could it also be that our family is now complete with a little girl who has shifted my priorities in the best possible ways? Absolutely. I’m finally hitting my stride with motherhood and it only took me 7 years!

Blurring the Lines Between Work and Home

I think the reason the stay at home mom label bothers me has nothing to do with staying at home or being a mom. It’s just an outdated term, and frankly, “working mom” is too. Who refers to “working dads” anyway? We are all working, always. And those of us who are parents are all parenting, always.

The workout I’m loving to hate

But nothing feels better than that post-workout “sore, never walking/picking anything up again” feeling. The amount of stress released alone makes every minute of torture worth it. However, those aren’t the only reasons I workout.

Midnight Musings

In order to keep myself awake I’ve been compiling list of things “to do” when no one else in the world seems awake. Simply getting up and turning on the light does not work anymore (plus who would want to wake up my darling husband).

When Mommy isn’t at her best

There are times we wish we’d responded or reacted differently or done something more. There are times our energy doesn’t stand up to our planned goals as parents. But I want you to know that we’re trying and we want you do learn to be okay.

Our February Pilgrimage

Four years ago, I somehow stumbled on an annual event held at the Lutz Children’s Museum in Manchester, Connecticut.  Apparently, the museum is the home of the “official Connecticut state groundhog” (who knew?) and every year, she or he makes a prediction about the end of the Winter season.  The public is invited to attend the special occasion.

Stage Three – We Can Do This

We certainly have had some missteps, in particular once my daughter started school in the fall. But we recover and hug it out. I made it a practice to stand my ground as a parent, but to do so as gently as possible. And to readily admit my mistakes when I made them.

Five Reasons Why My Mom Friends Rule

As women, even when we are not compatible, we should respect one another and their own personal choices for themselves and their families, but a). not everyone has gotten that message yet, and b). even if they do, it means they will do you no mommy harm, but it does not necessarily mean you will be great friends.

Mouse Assassin and Other Titles

Fall is more challenging than Summer.  This is just a truth.  Summer is the time for eating tomatoes from the garden with balsamic vinegar and calling it dinner.  For staying up a little late and chasing fireflies in the yard.  Fall is none of these things. None. Of. Them.
