Jack of All Trades, Master of None.


It wasn’t that long ago that I had a formal job, where I had to actually report to a live, adult human being. I sometimes wore this unique style of shirt that had buttons and a collar – far different than my current ensemble. I was fortunate enough to have a job where we had


Flow on the Go: Potty Training Tips for the Road.


Back in the early 2000s, I was the unfortunate victim of having to suffer through Southern California traffic during late-day rush hour. Having an afternoon meeting on a Friday at one of the TV networks in the ‘Valley’ (San Fernando – over the hill) while living on Venice Beach couldn’t have been a worse scenario.


Hoppin’ Along the I-85 Bunny Trail.


Easter has long been one of my favorite holidays, despite that one year that I got the psychedelic bunny at the mall as evidenced in THIS previously written article.

The Tale of 26 T-Shirts.


There’s nothing more painful than having to move a family of five twice in one year. Throw in having to switch schools, adjust to different schedules and policies and then have half of the family get the flu (including myself currently), it’s been a borderline debilitating few months. Many thanks to my friends at Clorox


Making the House a Home.


As a few of you know from my last post, we’ve recently had a bout with black mold in our kitchen. The last six weeks have seemed like a massive game of rope-a-dope, with me stumbling from one corner of the ring to the next. The good news is that we found a great place


Head Lice, Sunburn and Constipation: The Child Health Apocalypse Year in Review.


It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since I’ve been partnered with the CHPA (Consumer Healthcare Products Association) and their #KnowYourOTCs campaign. One of the main reasons that I found this opportunity so interesting was that almost every single topic has either happened to me (er, the kids) in the past or we’ve


My New Year’s Resolution: A Little Less Staring, a Little More Caring.


EDITOR’S NOTE: I am partnering with Minute Maid for a series of stories to help parents realize they’re #doingood. All opinions are my own. There’s no perfect book written about how to be a parent. Sure, there are a few decent reads out there, heck I even wrote one myself (less self-help and more I

As you know, we’re teaming up with TYLENOL to celebrate all the different ways people family during the holidays, and to share #HowWeFamily. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday and I’m


Santa Loves These Sugar Cookies.


EDITOR’S NOTE: I have received information about #HowWeFamily from the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is sponsored post. As part of my partnership with Tylenol, we’re teaming up this holiday season to inspire conversation about how different people ‘family’.  My grandma’s sugar cookie recipe is a little piece of personal


Easing the Back-to-School Tradition.


I am partnering with Minute Maid for a series of stories to help parents realize they’re #doingood. All opinions are my own. Summer is an amazing time for everyone. Like most families, we look forward to the warm weather, swimming at the pool and maybe even a family vacation by the lake. Collecting seashells has
