PBN Blog Blast: The Truth About Motherhood - and it is the one you probably won't want to hear, either.

The Parent Bloggers Network is collaborating with Discovery Health to introduce their new docu-drama "Deliver Me" which follows three women - best friends, working mothers and physicians - as they balance delivering babies together in their OB/GYN practice with their lives outside the delivery room. Perhaps you're like me - having given birth to what will probably be her last baby, 6 years ago - and asking yourself, what's this have to do with me? Well, they're looking for bloggers to tell them the truth about motherhood and I happen to have a one that just might hurt, a little. Don't be surprised if your kids grow up NOT speaking to you...or, each other! I haven't spoken to my brother in a while. We seem to be missing each other, the last few Sundays, at my parents' house. My sister-in-law was sick on Good Friday and they couldn't make it... Read more →

Love Thursday: Smile, you're on candid karma!

This is a perfect example of why Mini-me was voted "Most Likely to Make You Smile" in our family! I was taught, very early in life, that having children will perhaps be one of the most important things that I will ever accomplish in life. Great. Probably the reason why I dreaded it so and, though I happen to believe I'm a very good mom, is it enough to guarantee happiness? A few years ago, a mommy-friend of mine gave me a gift. Nothing fancy, just a small token engraved with eight simple words: "Normal is a setting on the washing machine." Nothing heavy, just a small reminder that perhaps it was okay NOT to feel...you know...so, okay...all the time. Besides, one person's normal is perhaps another person's...well...let's just say that, growing up in a family that always had the weirdest stuff going on, it's perhaps easier for me to...

Wordless Wednesday: When Did Easter Become the New Halloween?

Holy Hannah Montana - it's a basket built for 4 - either the Easter Bunny's getting really, really lazy, or they were running low on Easter supplies at ALL the bunny markets, or maybe a little of both...damnit!

So, You From Joisey?

[This is an original New Jersey Moms Blog post - newest sister site to Silicon Valley Moms Blog - cross-posted here to This Full House and yes, I am VERY HAPPY to be their first contributing blogger!] Contrary to what other people may have told you - especially, if you've ever watched the opening credits of The Sopranos - there are some very pretty places to visit here in New Jersey, if you're willing to travel beyond the toll booths outside of New York City and away from the factories lining both sides of the New Jersey Turnpike. It's not called the Garden State for nothin,' you know. There are dozens of state forests, wildlife preserves and farmland that hasn't been taken over by the McMansions (not yet, anyway) and, of course, we've got "the shore." We live less than 15 minutes from the nearest beach - yes, we measure... Read more →

Picture Perfect Thursday: We Break for Spring, Sort Of!

How about a little more winter, to go with your first day of Spring? I know, I know - a lot of my blogging friends were hit pretty hard, this year - but, the kids and I were talking late last night (because, I was still awake) and figured out we only had two days of snow. When it actually, you know, stuck to the ground. Also, with only one snow day off, that...YES!...they would probably get out of school early, this year. Sort of makes having only a 3-day spring break seem that much more...STUPID! It starts today. They're back to school on Tuesday. Then, have Monday and Tuesday off next month, sometime around Passover, I think. Good thing we can't afford to, you know, go anywhere. Still, it would have been nice to get together with Kate, or perhaps visit with a couple of other family friends, who... Read more →

Wordless Wednesday: Better Late Than Never

So, Thing Two says, "Gosh, but it was windy today and good thing you remembered to move the basketball net, like Daddy asked you!" Then, I say, "OH SNAP...I didn't...but, good thing I can move the car, before Daddy gets home, and forget that this eeeeeeeh-vuh happened...that is...if YOU know what's good for you!" Thank you.
