New Year's resolutions with a twist
Over the New Year's holiday, my 4-year-old daughter asked me, "Why are we celebrating such a humongous number, Mommy?" It took me a moment to process her comment. I then realized she was referring to 2010, and I had to smile at my little Einstein's mind. "Yes, honey, 2010 is a humongous...

Our little 'Dancing Queens'
You know the saying, "Never say never?" Well, I never thought I'd be dancing to Hannah Montana music or doing the Hokie Pokie in my living room! Yes, now I'm a mother of two little girls who are both passionate living-room dancers. From lively polkas to Taylor Swift, my daughters...

The joy of receiving (and writing) letters
When I opened my mailbox last week, my heart skipped a beat. There amongst the bills and junk mail was a letter! The postmark was from Bismarck, N.D., and I recognized the neat handwriting -- it was a letter from my friend, Carolyn. Ah, the joy of receiving a hand-written letter!...

Movie night with my daughter
My daughter went to her first movie at the Cozy Theatre last week. I'm not sure who was more excited: me or her! Naturally, Ally was excited to experience her first movie in a theater. I, on the other hand, was excited to have a night out! OK, I admit, I also couldn't wait to munch...

Learning to let go of baby clothes
As I sorted through my daughters' baby clothes they'd outgrown, I couldn't help but feel a pang of sadness in my heart. When I folded a pair of soft-pink footie pajamas, I could picture myself rocking and singing Ashley to sleep when she was just a newborn. Then I came across a...

You know you're a mom when ...
As if being a mom wasn't challenging enough, we've got more to worry about these days. Between the recession, going "green," wood tick and mosquito season, and now swine flu, sometimes it's hard finding something to smile about. But then again, Mother's Day is just around the corner!...
