  My oxygen mask fell off yesterday. Big time. One of the realities that parents of small children live with is that we often don’t get enough sleep. Sometimes that lack of sleep starts to accumulate. I was determined Sunday night to go to bed earlier in order to catch up. Parents of small children …

  I have been (not so patiently) waiting for two pieces of news from my employer. Remember the Spanish test I was watching TV for…ahem…studying for? I should have gotten that result back in no more than two days. As I headed to the airport for work the other day (almost one full week later), …

  The kids and I have been working our way through our summer bucket list.  I was determined that this summer 2014 would be a fun one. And because I believe in saying things aloud and blessing verbally, I began blessing our summer long before it got here. In case you haven’t read about it …
Yep, that’s it.  That’s the one.  It is the one of which I was going to have “one small slice”. The good news is that the box didn’t go into the trash completely empty.  The bad news is that it was almost full when I got started on it. If you read my recent post …
How many times a day do I find myself asking my kids this very question?  Their little bodies sometimes crave one thing while their minds seek out something else.  Their body whispers “green beans” while their mind shouts “chocolate chip cookies”!

Confession: I am a former junkie of Mexican telenovelas. I started watching these syrupy melodramatic soap operas in college when I was learning Spanish for the first time. My best friend (a Brazilian) and I would watch them at her apartment in the evenings after class. Mexican soap operas are very different from American ones. …
Today was one of those days that if I wasn’t looking for a muzzle to put on my mouth to prevent me from saying (or yelling) something stupid, I was looking for my foot to put it in afterwards. Everything my kids were doing or saying seemed to get on my nerves. Today was one …
The first time I ever saw New York City was from the bird’s eye view of an airplane. It was September and not a cloud in the sky. I flew over Manhattan on a flight from Boston to Washington, D.C. I never realized how large Central Park really was. I would later move to NYC …
My daughter had been asking me for days to buy brownies at the store. Since I have been making lifestyle changes, sugar is one thing I try not to keep around the house. However, it is difficult being the only person in the house trying to avoid sweets and other junk food. So I gave …
I always dreamt of being a stay-at-home mom. For as long as I can remember, I hoped and imagined that when I had kids someday, I would be home to take care of them rather than working. I admit that I even judged some moms who worked rather than staying at home. I was convinced …
