I don’t think there are really any winners when it comes to temper tantrums. But if there were, I’m pretty sure I would have come up on top for this one. Certainly not because it didn’t exist, I have…Continue

"I actually set out to supplement our family income so that we could do fun things with the kids and save for a vacation.  I just purchased a cruise for the whole family.  Can't wait!!!"

Why do you blog?

I always had an affection for writing. It seemed like an easy way for me to get out my thoughts. English teachers from when I was very young were complimenting me for my advanced writing skills. Although writing always had a presence in my life, I never really focused on this skill or passion for that matter.When I was very young, I used to write long elaborate stories (usually having to do with friends and boys of course) in notebook after notebook. I always felt a big sense of relief when a…See More

Xanax Please - www.mommystwocents.com

Recently a local child died in a tragic accident at his overnight camp. The first thought that came to mind was that my kids are never going to overnight camp. I must keep a close eye on my children at all times. At first, the thought of my kids being under my supervision as much of the time as possible seemed to relieve me.

Gulp @ www.mommystwocents.com

As a working mom I felt the prejudice of stay at home moms that seemed to judge whether I was making the right choice for my family by working. I forgot that there would be a reverse bias when I crossed over.
