This weekend, I pulled out all of my Christmas stuff to prepare for decorating while J is visiting with his father and grandparents over Thanksgiving.  The boxes were all stacked in the closet of the room my brother is living in and he was kind enough to pull them all out for me. I couldn’t […]

Thanksgiving Yummies

It’s Saturday and I’m starting to get full on into the holiday spirit.  This past week, I stocked up on everything I need to make what I consider to be a traditional Thanksgiving.  Bear in mind I don’t eat meat, so I circumvent the traditional turkey in favor of a lot more veggies and potatoes.  […]


J woke up at 4:00 this morning, coughing like a pack a day smoker.  At 4:20 we were doing a breathing treatment. At 4:40 he was playing a game of climb on mommy and ask to get up.  This game continued until 5:45 when I finally relented. At 5:50, I took the dog outside while […]

The Universal Truths of Toddlers

Parenting a two year old is a full time job.  It’s both hands, both feet, both eyes at all times.  So if you’re closing in on the realm of true toddlerdom, allow me to share with you what I like to call my five “Not-so-Universal Not-so-True Truths of Parenting a Toddler.” The reason for most […]

Define “well”

I must be doing really well. I know that is true because people tell me all the time.  They smile and nod and pat me on the back and tell me that I “sound good” or “better” or “like myself.” Whatever any of that means.  So I must be doing really well.  Even though I feel […]

Welcome to the Imagi Nation

I loved having a baby.  I loved all the snuggles and the little noises he would make when he was waking up or hungry.  I loved that he was… you know, portable.  Sure, there were a lot of things I didn’t like about the age of babydom… but those things have been softly muted by […]

Making the Right Choices

As a working (outside the home) mother, most mornings during the week are really rushed.  It’s a game of how fast can I get myself ready, get J ready, walk the dog, eat breakfast, and dear GOD make coffee, and still get to work on time. Or in my case, early.  I am a morning […]

Friday in the Working World

Working moms need an “off” button. I need some sort of switch I can flip that says “Okay, you’re home with your son now, so please stop thinking about the discovery responses that are due and the phone calls you need to make in the morning.” And when morning comes, I need a switch I […]

Where I Don’t Talk about Penn State

I am not going to talk about Penn State. What I am going to talk about is the problem we seem to have in this country with victims.  Rape victims, domestic abuse victims, child abuse victims…. we have issues with victims.  And while I’m not sure exactly why that is, I think it’s because victims […]

Time is flying

I’ve mentioned it before, but my son says “sorry!” when he bumps into the vacuum cleaner. That probably means something profound or at least something hilarious, but I’m not sure what it is.  The fact of the matter is, he takes instructions and runs with them all on his own.  Saying “sorry” has become necessary […]
