When your child brings home something Fugly

I so wanted to be the mom who is able to celebrate everything my kids do, to see the beauty in their attempts, to set up shrines to their endeavors. But I’m not. I’ve gotten over it, so you should too – let’s get that out of the way right now so that I don’t […]

Holiday couch shopping: coasters

It was a gorgeous day outside, about 85 degrees. The Ass took the kids to the park to ride bikes. I had the house to myself. So what did I do? Shopped online for coasters. The men in my life drink a lot of ice water, which in sticky weather like this leaves huge puddles […]

My Crazy Sleep Experiment: Day eighteen

So I think I can call my crazy Everyman Sleep Schedule experiment a success, but only part-way. While I’m no longer tired (as long as I stick to the schedule), I’m finding myself rather unmotivated, which may be a result of the experiment, or possibly just my normal unmotivated self – hard to tell. :-) […]

Bring your budding bloggers to the Digital Family Summit

I’m so thrilled to be attending the very first Digital Family Summit in Philadelphia at the end of June, as a guest of the organizers. But it won’t just be me attending, it will be my kids as well – owners of a couple of websites that they can’t wait to get off the ground. […]

[The following post was commissioned by AboutOne.com] I’m kind-of a disaster when it comes to organizing some things. OK, most things.

Middle School: taking a chance

It’s middle school selection time in NYC, and with our oldest being in 5th grade this is our first time going through the process. Without going into too many specifics, it’s looking like our choice will come down to two public schools, which couldn’t be more different: Giant & Established vs. Tiny & Brand Spanking […]

Win a play kit from Let’s Play!

[The following post was written as part of my paid ambassadorship with Let’s Play, a part of the Dr Pepper/Snapple Group] A little while back I asked you to take the Let’s Play Pledge. Did you do it? Thank you! Or if you didn’t, why not? It’s really easy – you just pledge that you’ll […]

My Crazy Sleep Experiment: Day Five–not insane yet

So far so good. Waiting for some kind of crash, but so far, nothing! It can’t really be this easy, can it? I mean, if it were, everybody would be doing it! Originally posted on Selfish Mom.
