Wax On, Wax Off

To wax or not to wax. It’s never been a question. At the ripe old age of 14, I began a dutiful pilgrimage to the nail salon in the center of town to have my eyebrows separated and defined. “No baby oil, please,” I’d request for fear of the dreaded post-waxing pimples that would surely […]

An Earth Day Potty Training Tale

April 22nd is Earth Day and it also marks my son being potty trained for a full year. Hallelujah! We’d had some false starts, and there were times I wondered when and how this would possibly happen, but it did. I thought saying goodbye to disposable diapers (at least for one child) on Earth Day […]

Technology Alternatives And Games from Our Childhood

Oh, technology! You horrible, evil, wonderful thing! Our lives revolve around it – computers at work, cell phones and laptops at home, flat-screen TVs, iThis and iThat, apps, gaming consoles, and hand-held gaming devices. I could swim in a sea of them and revel in the joy of having everything I need within an arm’s […]

Cleaning Your Makeup Brushes

Keeping with last month’s theme of “Spring Cleaning”, I want to do a post all about cleaning your makeup brushes. Brushes should be cleaned regularly; spot cleaned at least every other day and deep cleaned once a week, or at a very minimum once a month. A good rule of thumb is to treat them […]

Mom Patrol

Last Saturday night I went out with a friend whom I’ve known since nursery school. Thirty-six years (thirty-seven in her case, but who’s counting?!) of friendship, and we actually now live in the same city. It was destiny.  But friendship isn’t where I’m going with this post. Although I could fill pages with the love […]

But what do April snow showers bring?

Winter broke like a fever and suddenly it’s spring, birds chirp merrily in the trees, darting down to the spongy moss covered earth that’s bare and raw, snow drawn back like a curtain, exposing little shriveled fermented apples and wiggling earthworms. The air is warm and damp and full of excitement because spring is literally […]

Fighting The Mom Brain

I wouldn’t say that I was ever SUPER organized, even before kids. But I did, at the very least, manage not to miss appointments or show up 20 minutes late to everything. I remembered to call my mom and didn’t have to overnight birthday presents because OHCRAPISTHATTOMORROW? Now, though? Now I feel like the biggest […]

A Hair Story

There are many adjectives that can be used to describe my daughter’s hair: curly, twisty, kinky, coily, afro, poofy, big, natural, 4C and nappy just to name a few. Some I embrace and use regularly with pride and some I stay away from because of the negative connotations that they carry. A little background: My […]

Paternity Leave

I’m not a big sports fan.  I watch the Olympics, but not with any regularity.  I tune into the World Series, maybe every other year.  And the only reason I know that the World Cup is held every 4 years is because I danced for the 2010 WC game kickoff in Seattle.  That being said, […]

Protecting My Kids: Beyond the Playground

For  many of us, when we spend our first days as Moms, we can’t help but fall madly in love with this new gift in our lives. This precious being that we have been ordained to care for. A creature so innocent and helpless. Their very survival depends on our ability to care for them. […]
