Oh the joys of TV

October 5, 2011

Sadly, one of my most favorite ways to relax is watching tv. So with the fall comes the new programming. Playboy Club, which I did not watch, was cancelled so it made me think of what new shows I absolutely love. Top three shows of the season… 1. Up All Night What parent can’t identify with this show?! Not to […]

No Need for Red-Headed Sperm Donors

September 19, 2011

Sperm is sperm, right? You need it to create a baby. And if you got an egg, you gotta find somewhere to get the sperm. According to an MSN article by Kimberly Hayes Taylor, a sperm bank called Cyros International no longer wants to accept sperm from red haired donors. In fact, they really would like Caucasian, Mediterranean and a […]

The American Dream

September 10, 2011

People have said that real estate prices are falling at a slower rate, progress? I think not. It seems like no matter how it is spun, the bottom line is the real estate industry still stinks. Everyone keeps saying that it’s a buyer’s market, so where are all the buyers? I was reading this article explaining that requests for mortgages […]

The Car Seat Debacle of 2011

August 17, 2011

When Drew was first born I researched the variety of car seats available for an infant and settled on a Graco. It was quite practical; universal with most strollers, had lovely attachments to fit into different bases for different cars and allowed the child to be carried while sleeping without being moved. I discussed with other mothers the value of […]

Child-Free Dining

August 1, 2011

Recently people have been blogging, discussing and arguing the topic of having child-free restaurants. I caught up on the issue here… http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43718876/ns/business-small_business/t/restaurant-says-it-has-heard-enough-bans-kids/ As a parent you can’t help but feel slightly put off by the idea of your children being forbid to dine somewhere.

Xanax Please

July 25, 2011

Recently a local child died in a tragic accident at his overnight camp. The first thought that came to mind was that my kids are never going to overnight camp. I must keep a close eye on my children at all times. At first, the thought of my kids being under my supervision as much of the time as possible […]

You are perfect just the way you are!

July 18, 2011

I recently starting thinking about what it takes to raise a well-adjusted girl, on the heels of celebrating Gabby’s new found love for food. Boys have their challenges, don’t get me wrong, but everyone knows that raising girls comes with an emotional hormonal roller coaster where mothers frequently can’t do anything right. I was reading an article this morning… http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/07/18/us-heavy-teens-idUSTRE76H15320110718 […]

Who Cares?

July 12, 2011

For the last few years, every time anyone breathed a word of Casey Anthony, Caylee or anything along those lines, I wanted to run the other way. And fortunately as years of the trial carried on, I was able to stick my head in the sand. In recent weeks, it’s become impossible to ignore. Every channel you turn to is […]
