5 Women I Want My Daughters to Know About

This month’s Yahoo! Mother Board topic is a celebration of Women’s History Month.  I know that my daughters will learn about a multitude of great women in their school years, but these are women that don’t make the classroom  – even Margaret Sanger unfortunately.  If you have a woman who you want to make sure […]

Top Ten Parenting Truths of 2010 (learned the hard way)

If your child is a raging maniac for no reason chances are they will wake up in the middle of the night vomiting with 103 degree fever. Always put a bowl next to your child’s bed if they say their stomach hurts before bedtime. The first 6 weeks of school are always terrible.  It will […]

Nothing Says Thanksgiving Like Jell-O

Yes I am one of those read-all-the-labels, organic milk buying, farmers market shopping, will not make mashed potatoes from a box kind of moms.  But then Thanksgiving rolls around and every inch of my Midwestern rooted soul craves some particularly 1950s-centric foods.  I spent every Thanksgiving of my childhood in suburban Michigan, staying at my […]

The Serendipity of My Family’s Library

The first time I held a Kindle in my hand I almost dropped it.  I have small hands and keeping the Kindle in its little cover required some maneuvering that I am not used to while reading.  I finally figured out the most comfortable way to hold the thing and read my way through Lorrie […]

I am one of THOSE PTA moms – and Proud of It!

In the last few months I’ve read several blog posts railing against the PTA moms at various schools.  The complaints are usually the same – they’re overbearing and pushy, busy bodies trying to vie for the principal or teacher’s attention, do-gooders who get off on making the rest of the parents feel bad.  Yeah, yeah.  […]
