Mindfulness (or lack thereof), Christmas Rush and the Elf

Being mindful is not the easiest task when you are a mom, especially when you are new in the role. A lot of talk went on this summer over the Georgia father who left his child in the hot car to die. Numerous mommy blogs then kept popping up with moms confessing to accidentally leaving their child in the car, at the store, lost in the mall, and sharing their guilt. I personally don't feel that moms should be put on the spot about this and feel horrible that it become a news story that then morphed into a whole zeitgeist about lack of mindfulness in parents....more

The Hybrid Mom

That's Mommy Warrior To You

Here’s a newsflash: the Mommy Wars are bullshit. There’s no competition. There’s no blue ribbon, golden cup or flower wreath at the end. The best any of us can hope for is that our children will survive childhood and still speak to us.The truth is we’re all flying by the seat of our pants. Every last one of us.

I'm A Mama

After being in the weird category of "just a stepmom" for many years,  I'm a mama now. I'm coming out of the fog of the first year and reflecting on what this means. I'm a mama, I eat toddler tapas all day--bits of cheese, nuggets of either fish or chicken, random puffs and Cheerios as I try to get some housekeeping done while my son is napping. Haute on-the-go mom cuisine! ...more

10 Things All Mothers Should Know About Their Kids

Being a mom has to be the most incredibly fulfilling job on the planet. I wouldn't know. I'm far from being at a place in my life where becoming mom is either an option at all or a good decision. Still I can admit that I admire the women I know who are mothers and I slightly envy those who in a few months will become mothers. I adore my own mother more than words can say. Not to mention, aside from her I have an amazing "adopted" mom who is also mommy to my two year old little sister....more
