December 2, 2015

Guest Post by Lisa Smith Last week, my 11 year-old boy woke up on the wrong side of the bed. He was very unhappy with everyone and at everything (including me). I couldn’t do anything right. My mere existence irritated him. We rode to school in silence. When we got there he continued to look […]

You are five.

February 25, 2015

Who were you when you were five? When I was five… I loved flowers — I vividly remember the plants from my childhood – the sunflowers in my backyard, the rose bushes by the patio, the filbert orchards and the Oregon grapes with berries you couldn’t really eat. I loved to swim – that feeling […]

Sexy Moms, Little Golden Books and The Truth About “Perfect”

January 21, 2015

I used to want to be a “perfect mom.” Before the 3 you see up top, I’d fantasize about life with kids. I could smell the fresh baked cookies as I pulled them out of the oven, my hair perfectly coiffed. Somehow, I managed to look motherly yet sexy wearing a ruffly apron and high […]

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

December 14, 2009

I am about to make a very embarrassing confession.

How Many Cupcakes Does it Take to Feel a Feeling?

October 12, 2009

Anthony, my 19 month old son, was playing with a train at the Sip and Play Café a few months back. As he was innocently pushing the train around the track, another toddler shoved him in the chest.
