Front Seat Rider

 I really thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Nope, I did see a woman holding a baby in the front seat of a minivan while approaching the toll booth to go over the George Washington Bridge. There was tons of traffic. People switching lanes everywhere, horns beeping, hand gestures flying. In the middle of all…

Hey, Your Baby Can Read...Really?

 Okay, I'm coming clean. I became so mesmerized with the "Your Baby Can Read" commercial that I actually ordered the reading system that promises to help your child learn to read. But, it wasn't just the commercial that made me run to jot down the number and grab my phone and MasterCard. During my daughter's last well visit, the pediatrician asked how many words were in her vocabulary. My husband and I looked at each other, trying not to laugh. Vocabulary? Um, she was 15 months at the time. She… Continue

Finding Mom-ME-Time

  Every expectant mother hears it..."just wait until that baby comes, your life is going to change, forget about having any time for yourself." Yes, your life does change. Yes, your free time is severely restricted, but does it mean you have absolutely NO time for yourself and your previous passions in life? It doesn't have to, but a lot of times it ends up that way. You just have to learn how to put the "me" back in mommy.

   First let's clarify.."Me" time is not doing the dishes or…

Comfort Driven Society

     Everyone has heard in the news about obesity being a growing epidemic. Poor nutrition and overall health is a major concern in this country. Why wouldn't it be? In a high paced, convenience centered, fast food driven society, that's an obvious result. Fast food is a subject that has already been covered intensely by the media, so I needn't bother.…

Back To Basics

I realized something recently that my life has become too complicated and I need to get back to the basics. 

God, Family, Friends.

My God, I have put to the wayside because life was to demanding of my time.  I now understand, again, that by doing this I have made my life complicated.  Instead of quieting myself and hearing what God has to say, I busy myself with day to day activities.  When one of my day to day activities should be meditating on God's Word.

My Family, is…

A Working Mom's Guilt

   Merriam-Webster defines guilt as a feeling of culpability for offenses. This week I define guilt as a quivering lip and watery eyes of a sick child you leave as you head out the door to work as well as the utterly crappy feeling you have as you sit at your desk. At the first sniffle or cough, I will be the first one to call out sick and take care of my daughter. Unfortunately, the year got off to a rough start for my family health-wise, so I've used the majority of my sick time within just… Continue
