What’s mine is yours

I had barely pulled my dress over my head when my daughter walked into my room without knocking. She was in need of a rubberband for her hair despite the fact that I had already given her one the night before....more

QuickByte Fridays--Be Positve Mom's Before I Was a Mom

http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2011/02/quickbyte-fridays-be-positive-moms.html Ahhh, after a week of prepping the nursery, cleaning out more closets, digging out from under more snow, cleaning up after a potty-training toddler, doing a bazillion loads of laundry for baby and said toddler, trying not to catch this cold, staying caught up with the onslaught of work at my "real job", my head is literally SPINNING!...more

Bottom of the barrel

I am going to try very hard to not let this turn into a rant. There are Jr.-HighSchool girls who don't have friends. My daughter finds herself to be one of those girls. Let me lay it out for ya. She's overweight, she seems to be a late bloomer (both emotionally and physically), she has to work hard for her grades, and she was given more than just a "measure" of compassion for all creatures great and small.  I have read articles that describe bullies and their ability to detect those who are vulnerable to their bully ing....more

To Vegan or Not To Vegan

http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2011/02/to-vegan-or-not-to-vegan.html To build off of my last post, featuring a friend and fellow blogger that completed a 30-day vegan cleanse, I wanted to talk more about the vegan part of the equation.I thought it was super timely that Oprah hosted a show focused on veganism and offered a week-long vegan challenge to her staff. One of her guests was Kathy Freston, known as The Veganist....more

QuickByte Fridays--Fit & Healthy Mommy's Vegan Cleanse

http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2011/02/quickbyte-fridays-fit-healthy-mommys.html Today's featured supermom is a fellow P90X friend, Debi Mikolowsky, whom I met through my postings for Project Supermom on the Facebook P90X page...an incredibly supportive group of people, I might add! Anyway, Debi kicked off 2011 with a self-imposed vegan cleanse for 30-days. Now, I have been curious about cleanses for awhile, but I haven't actually partaken in one....more

Permission, Imperfection and Pizza = The Best Baby Gifts of All

My toddler is transitioning from crib to bed. Every time he wakes up, he realizes that he’s no longer confined. What does he do? He JUMPS! An excited thunder from bed to floor, from floor to bed and then back again....more

Price for being a Career Mom...

I was touched while reading a post today, about the price of being a career mom, from a well known blog, Women on the Fence. This story is a common thread with “working” (a term I find redundant) mothers....more

Exhausted but fulfilled

"Exit Interview for a Mommy" just finished choking me up (BEAUTIFUL PIECE!), so let me get this off my chest. It's 11 p.m. over here and I had no idea that this day was about to be over, because I have yet to stop. I had one meal today, and just now remembered that because as I sat down to write I wondered why my stomach hurt. Could it be all the mayhem that took over my life today that's giving me a scatterbrain? Let's see... the twins got naked about four times, I retrieved several pairs of abandoned socks, washed and folded about six or seven loads... OH!...more

Am I a Tiger Mom?

Third post in less than 30 mins... This blogging this is kind of fun. Anyways, since I'm Asian the news of the Tiger Mom spread quickly. Though she writes from a Chinese mother POV and I'm Laotian, I'm kind of sad to see some traits in how my parents raised me....more
