Zap! Pow! Kachow! #MarvelUniverseLive

Last week was rough. Busy. Hectic. Stressful. I barely had time to do anything extra. Everyone got to school, work, but that was it. I haven’t had a start to the school year this crazy in a very long time. Friday afternoon as each kid came home from school…I got back from driving carpool…and...

I can be an ostrich. I can bury my head under the sand. Sing La La La when confronted with a situation that makes me uncomfortable. But I’m an adult. I can’t avoid unpleasant conversations with issues that affect my kids. I need to remove my head from the sand, come up for air,...

#MarvelUniverseLive Comes to #DC

Finding a movie for all five of us to watch as a family used to be so easy. I would pick a Disney movie or another animated movie and everyone would be happy. Once my oldest turned 12 or so, her interest in animated movies waned. My middle and youngest were still game to...

College Days: Two Weeks In

Two weeks. Fourteen days. That’s how long it is since I saw my daughter last. Dropping her off at college seems like months ago. It’s not that the house is quieter without her. She’s a very quiet person. But even her quiet, reserved presence is noticeably missing from the hub bub of the house....

Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No! It’s the Superman Hall of Heroes! #EverydayHeroes

I Spy With My Little Eye…a Quick Dinner Option for Summer Nights #familydinner #familygamenight

Even in the most ideal and favorable circumstances, cooking dinner is not my favorite activity. During the school year, I cobble together reasonably decent meals for my family. Come summer all bets are off. My school administrator husband steps up and manages dinner prep for most of the summer when he is home from...

Experiencing WWE Raw for the First Time #WWEMoms #RAW #DC

This past Monday I stepped out of my comfort zone. Waaayyyy out of my comfort zone. Want to know what I did? You won’t believe it if I tell you. My friends certainly did not believe it even when they saw my photos on Facebook. I took my family to WWE Raw! What a...
