You Can Find Me Writing Here…the Baltimore Examiner

Here’s the thing. I need to admit something. I need to come clean. Breathe. I am HORRIBLE at self-promotion. There I said it. I don’t promote my posts…sponsored and not…on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and even Google+. I just don’t. I am a bad blogger. I am a bad PR person. If I won’t promote...

The Grand Opening…or So I Thought

What can I say? I was naive. It seemed perfectly plausible to me at the time. A new recreation center was opening in my town. So my sister and I decided to be the FIRST people at the opening of the recreation center. Seemed like an amazing idea at the time. We lived in a town...

Following, Not Leading Your Child’s #JourneytoCollege

My oldest child is a trailblazer. She’s my “out of the box” thinker. She does everything her own way. She’s the child who informed me after a lengthy timeout when she was 7 that she would do what I asked her to do next time but only because I asked her not because she...

Start the Conversation with #GrabtheGoodies @GoFAAR @AskListenLearn

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....
