Cashmere

“Pilly” I remember when I was younger my mother had this little thing, it looked like a handheld fan, that she would run across her sweaters to get the “pills” off of them.  “You don’t want your sweaters to look pilly,” she would say. There are words that stick with you.  “Pilly” is one of…

Parenting sucks. There it is, my first thought when the alarm went off at 5:10 this morning. If you have never read my blog before and you are thinking of clicking that FOLLOW button based on the above statement because you can’t stand your kids and you feel like this blog will be a place…

The child is the newbie, the one that just came on the scene and presumably knows nothing. Similar to a new job,…

School Clothes

A military helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan and our country lost valuable, precious, incredibly brave lives. The stock market continues to approach the drain and I’m not quite sure any of the suits walking around Washington know what they’re doing. As important as these issues are, and believe me they are important, my daughter…

Lime Green Pants

Being a mother is tricky stuff. I have always said I float between serial killer and valedictorian with my children every single day. There isn’t a right answer or a book that tells you how to raise a healthy, well adjusted, productive human being. In fact, when I think about the actual task of helping…
