Why Moms Are Always Late

When I was a kid, my family was notorious for being late to everything. We all blamed my mom. All four of us kids would be dressed and ready to go, but then we had to sit and wait for my mom to finish putting on her makeup, find some matching earrings, and then finally […]

More than 800,000 Lunch Combinations!

800,000+ Food Combinations for School Lunches

It seems as though the post I most often see running through my social media feed right before school starts is the “what to pack for school lunches?” post. Some are humorous, some are melancholy, and some just go for broke and stock up on Lunchables.  I really like handing over the lunch-packing power to […]

United in Laughter

We all have those days as moms where every possible thing seems to go wrong. Kids also have that amazing ability of helping us crash-land right back in our place when we get too confident in our abilities.

To the Moms of Super Fussy Babies

My youngest is about to turn eight, and today I started poking around for his birthday book in preparation to write my annual letter to him.

Play Dates are the New Happy Hour

Wine tasting once a month… Cheap margaritas and queso at Chuy’s… Girls’ Nights Out at innovative new restaurants at The Pearl… Yeah, I don’t do those things anymore. Or at least I don’t very often, and you probably don’t either. Why? Because having kids means reshuffling priorities, and almost weekly, I find myself saying no […]

Momentum Starts with Mom: The Great Inconvenient Truth of the Summer

We are moms, knee-deep into summer, and we hold this truth to be self evident: that nothing, absolutely positively nothing in the summer happens without our involvement. Our kids cannot go anywhere, eat anything, put clothes on, go to sleep, and sometimes, if we’re really winning, use the restroom without our supervision. I was only […]

Band Moms Rock: How My Working Mom Made It Work

Recently I heard some of my friends talking about chaperoning elementary school field trips. My kid isn’t to that age yet, so it’s interesting to hear other moms talk about their experiences. Some love it. Some go because they can. And some were never able to go because of work. My parents divorced when I […]
