VTech Learning Toys Review

VTech gave me the super awesome opportunity to review 4 of their hottest toddler toys for the holiday season.  That means that I had the opportunity to play with a bunch of toys and now I get to share my experience with all of you.  Yay! You guys, Baron learned all of his colors in less […]

Guilty!

My mother and I went out to lunch, we began talking about the difficulties of being a woman and she looked at me straight in the face and said, “I feel like I have failed you all as a mother.”  Now, I wasn’t sure if I should pity her, be highly offended that she was looking […]

Real men change diapers

We believe in Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, fairies and that all toys are gender-neutral.  When my first daughter was born and she showed interest in trains, I purchased the entire Thomas the train collection.  When my son showed interest in cross-dressing, baby dolls and all things pink, I didn’t think twice about letting him […]

Back to School with Allermates

Once upon a time there was a girl who lived in a bubble.  The girl then grew up and married an accountant.  She later gave birth to three children.  Two of those children having lactose and gluten allergies from the moment they were born. I have done my part in teaching my children that they cannot […]

Can’t we all just get along?

“No one cares what you look like.” I hear this comment come out of women’s mouths so much when referring to my attire.  It usually comes along with a side of, “You’re so dressed up.  I used to do that but then I realized that no one cared what I looked like.”  Okay, so what is really […]

How to book a quiet flight

Prepare to be amazed! Do you want to know how NOT to book a flight and be near a screaming child? WELL! Here’s a tip for you! Book a charter! Fly Private! Other than that, have a seat and shut the hell up. On my way to San Jose, CA I was on a 5 hour […]

Mind your manners

Okay, what the hell goes on in the park?  Like many other parents I detest taking my children to the park.  First and foremost, I’m a helicopter mom. I am not ashamed.  Secondly, I’m not a germaphobe but how often do you see someone giving the monkey bars a good rub down? I mean.  There HAS […]

Drivers wanted

I have reached a stage of motherhood that I was never warned about.  On most days I feel more like a personal assistant and chauffeur than anything else.  Long gone are the days of enjoying my children because now they have something to do every day of the week and most of the time on […]

All I wanted

All I wanted was one good picture.  Just one.  The anxiety my family makes me go through to take a picture is unreal.  This past Sunday we went to see fireworks and all I wanted was one picture.  One picture with my husband and children facing me while the glorious fireworks were in the background. […]

Rites of Passage

If you ever want to feel good about your parenting,  grab a seat next to me.  I love my children.  I live for them, they are tiny pieces of me.  Sometimes even annoying pieces of me but not as annoying as my stretch marks which are not so tiny by the way.  Like every other […]
