I ran across this article on the ever present mommy guilt issue for working moms. I’ve known enough working moms to know that daycare drop-off can be the worst part of every day and the fear of missing a milestone moment can be demoralizing. But ladies, the grass isn’t always greener. Don’t we all haveContinue reading “Got Guilt?”
While filling out the new patient paperwork at a new eye doctor’s office today, I came to a halt at “Occupation.” I had a hard enough time writing down “sales” while at my previous position. Technically, that’s what I did, but I felt more like a communications consultant. Semantics…maybe. But that’s how I approached theContinue reading “Finding it Hard to Fill in the Blanks”
I admit to being a little behind in my reading, so it was only Monday night that I read last week’s My Turn column in Newsweek. Tuesday, Mojo Mom reacted to the same piece. Since this kept coming back to mind at random times over the last several days, I felt compelled to offer myContinue reading “One Mom’s Opinion”
You may remember Boy Shakira…well, he got a makeover this week on “America’s Got Talent” (oh Lord, yes I’m addicted). Check out Boy Britney (last I looked, BB was the featured video).
Date night. Why this term sends shivers down my spine, I don’t know. But since peanut’s arrival into our world, I certainly understand its necessity.

As part of the third Disability Awareness Night at Fenway Park, a young man with autism, was invited to sing the national anthem and got a little nervous: If we could all be so supportive of those with disabilities every day. What a truly patriotic moment.
After five days barefoot by the pool, this high heeled mama is finding it hard to put her shoes back on. The family vacation was a success. Peanut met three of my aunts, two of my uncles, two of my cousin’s kids, two cats, a bunny rabbit and a swimming pool. And he loved themContinue reading “Re-Entry”
I didn’t think I could look forward to vacation as much now that I’m not working as I did when I just needed to unplug from the corporate world. But man, I’m looking forward to our trip this week. We’re headed to New England to visit the family. In some circles, this type of familyContinue reading “Leaving on a Jet Plane”
Not since Dirty Dancing has a summer been so full of “Baby!” This winter, I realized that between April and Labor Day, I knew 8 couples who were expecting. That’s a lot of babies! So far, beautiful Natalie, little Lexie, adorable Liam and cutie Charles have arrived. In the next few weeks, two more munchkinsContinue reading “The Time of Your Life”
