"You know I Honestly think you are right in the situation with telling your daughter to remove herself from the situation. And honestly the new mom...did ask and you told her exactly what occurred? So yeah, some people, do not like hearing the truth.…"

Playground Wars, Round I (Mom vs Mom)

So I was at the playground today with my two littles ones and four other mothers and their children.  While there, I was introduced to a new mom by one of my good mom-friends.  We exchanged casual hellos, you know the typical greeting.  Fast forward an hour later and I'm realizing that this new mom's son is a little aggressive on the playground.  I have two daughters and my oldest is a little timid, at times.  Ok, here's the situation.  I am pushing my 15 month old on the swings and watching my…See More

Who needs a therapist? It's amazing what a little retail therapy can do to soothe the soul!

So, it's one of those rainy days in sunny San Diego.  I'm holed up in the house with two little girls and bored out of my mind.  What do I do?  Well while my two daughters partake in a PBS-feast, I log on to the Internet and start checking out some "sales."  Dangerous?  Yup.  Especially when you can find some great deals, i.e., no added costs (taxes) and free shipping.  But what else?  How about finding even more discounts?If you're like me, you love a deal.  And I always feel better about a…See More

Love, love, love : Valentine's Day

So Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I have to admit tonight's episode of GLEE really put me in the mood for celebration.  To my defense, I have already been prepping for the love-fest by handcrafting Dum Dum lollipop flowers for Paige's preschool party on Thursday -- and making extra for her playgroup party on V-Day.  Note the picture and presentation.  Quite impressive, if I do say so myself.I gotta say, the girl (Paige) was excited to do the craft with me...for about five…See More

Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane...(http://notanotherdirtydiaper.blogspot.com/)

Yup, call me crazy but I did it. I booked myself a flight to the psych ward...well, not quite but.... I did do what some believe is the unthinkable. I booked myself and my two "toddler" daughters on a cross country (San Diego to Newark) trip for the holidays and am flying solo....meaning no hubs in sight.Why? Well, have you taken a look at what airfare costs this year? In order to get the best deal possible...since we are paying for three seats now, I had to book myself and the girls on flights…See More

What are you thankful for this holiday season?

It's so easy to get caught up on the materialistic aspect that seems to come hand-in-hand with the upcoming holiday season. Seriously? Thanksgiving? I think more people are excited about Black Friday. But let's pause for a moment and really think, what are you thankful for this holiday season? Me? I'm thankful for my family and their good health. It's amazing how we take our health for granted. It isn't until you hear bad news that you realize just how reliant and how often times you take your…See More

Holiday Gift Suggestions (for the 1 year old and younger)

What to buy for a one year old? Especially when that (nearly) one year old has an older sister who has most everything! Well I did a bit of research and logged some time window shopping at Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Target and Amazon and here’s my suggestions…Leapfrog My First Book ($14.99+) There are two different versions available. Good Night Scout and Fide and Seek on the Farm. I opted for the Farm version and allowed my little one to do a test-run in the store. She loved being able to flip…See More

"Mine is People Magazine. As soon as it comes...usually on a Thursday. I savor the moment when the two kids are asleep and I can enjoy catching up with my gossip. Because we all know I'm BFFs with all those celebrities...Ha!"

The birthday blues

Did anyone else catch last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? If so, you saw two moms plan over-the-top birthday parties for their two toddlers. And yes, I said BOTH moms planned and held elaborate parties. I mean in comparison, one of the mother’s really went overboard (as did her plastic surgeon regarding her overly plumped lips)….and the final event didn’t even resemble a party for a toddler – more like an adult party with the child as an afterthought because let’s face…See More

Drama mama....

As a mom of two girls, I often wonder what drama their teenage years will bring. What will our relationships be like and how do I avoid the pitfalls that my own mother and I have experienced? The recent visit from my own mother made me stop, reflect and realize what an evolving and ever changing relationship mothers and daughters go through.My oldest daughter is only three years old but during the last few months, I’ve noticed that she is becoming more self sufficient or shall I say self…See More

Who put the Ma in Glamazon? Not me!

It’s late at night and I’m doing double duty as usual, the multi-tasker that I am. I’m in the shower bathing myself while also scrubbing the tub clean. Fun? Not. But hey, someone has to do it.It’s as I step out of the shower and catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror that I literally do a double take. I don’t recognize myself. Who is this overweight, pudgy, middle-aged woman staring back at me? A nightmare perhaps? I wish. I was screaming (inside my head) but now, this is my new reality.In…See More

Girlfriends = Sanity

Looking back at my life, I see how important my girlfriends are and were in my life.  From keeping me out of trouble; being the voice of reason; having my back; providing free therapy sessions; making me laugh through my tears; and just plain listening when it seems no one else could -- my girlfriends have all made lasting and important contributions to strengthening and supporting me in times of need. …

Just stopping by to say, "hello" :) I haven't been at Twitter Moms for a while because I have been getting everything ready for the launch of my 'The C.H.A.M.P. Within' book. It has been a lot of work, but the paperbacks are here and I am
EXTREMELY excited. While I was waiting to get published, I created the trailer for the coordinating Teen Reality Show and am now featuring successful single parents and supportive people in my new video blog series called Heroes At Home TV.

I have just posted the 1st video here at Twitter Moms - http://www.twittermoms.com/video/heroes-at-home-tv-1st-video - please check it out and let me know what you think.

Our mission is to reach as many parents as possible, therefore your feedback is extremely important to the success of this program.

I am also interested in learning what's new in your life - family, work, programs - I look forward to your stopping by my page and letting me know how you are doing!
