Is That All There Is?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Songs show up in my iTunes library without my knowledge of how they got there. Songs like “Is That All There Is?” – a live performance of song Peggy Lee made famous in the early 60s. The version in my musical cabinetry is a live performance sung by Sandra Bernhard, the comedienne known for her […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 6

I’ve been making videos SIX STRAIGHT WEEKS in a row! I’d say that makes a link-up better than any I know of. I tried doing this strictly through YouTube but they’ve decided that video responses and link-ups just aren’t as cool as they used to be. So here’s a glimpse at Episode 6 of my […]

Lessons My Son Learned At Tuckerton Seaport

DSC05259

At seven years old, I’m starting to realize my son is spoiled. I don’t mean in a disciplinary way. He has manners and is generally polite. He also has a lot of stuff but let’s face it – that’s the plight of the only child. When I say “spoiled,” I’m realizing that he hasn’t been exposed […]

For The Man Who Has Everything

I’m declaring it Men’s Week on my blog. Because I know you’re out there. I know you read my blog. Yes, men read my mommy blog. Truth be told, I totally do not consider this a “mommy blog” but I’m frequently lumped in that group. Frankly, you can call me whatever you want as long […]

All The Ways To Say… Why did I take that picture? {Giveaway}

bookstome-giveaway

A few short months ago, I made an infomercial highly entertaining video describing all of the benefits of using a service like BooksTo.Me. And I wrote a very informative post about what it was all about including a highly pinnable image. But just in case I can’t convince you to click back and read the entire post […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 1

You know how kids have show & tell in school? Actually, kids don’t even have show & tell very often anymore. God forbid they should talk about anything non-school-related when there’s learnin’ to be had. But let’s face it. Kids like to show off the cool stuff they have. Not to make other kids jealous […]

Getting Your Kids to Talk at the Table

Kid Conversations

From the moment my son learned to form words, he has literally never. shut. up. I’m not complaining. I’m a talker. I come from a family of talkers. I’m also a nervous talker. When it’s quiet, I feel the need to fill up the silence, which I find really odd because when I’m alone, I […]

It’s About Gratitude: A Twitter Party Just for Moms

Fadra and Mom

Every once in a while, something really cool happens to me in this space that I believe couldn’t have happened any other way. In this case, it’s the opportunity to work as a Working Mother Contributing Editor. Yes, THAT Working Mother. What’s even cooler is the reason for the opportunity. It’s all about saluting the good […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 4

This is it, folks. The last video from the celebration. And it was quite a celebration. I know there are plenty of naysayers out there. I know there are people that just don’t get the Disney magic. That’s cool. You can just go about your lives. But for those of us that went and want […]

2014 Disney Social Media Moms: Day 3

  The days are getting longer and my evenings getting shorter. So the time it takes to edit a video is getting rougher. Especially tonight. Tomorrow morning, I have to (voluntarily) be up and out by 5:30am. Honestly, it doesn’t matter if I’m on East coast or West coast time, 5:30am is still FREAKING early! […]
