Mommy Musings-The Beauty In Believe

Mommy Musings – Here Comes Santa Claus

I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I blinked for a moment sometime in October and somehow found myself in the middle of November. Perhaps it was the late change of seasons, the delayed temperature drop or those two kids I spend much time chasing … I'm really not sure.

Mommy Musings - Third Time’s A Charm

Last week, I promised myself I would not write another sports related column. I am the 'mommy' after all and we do have a very well-spoken Sports Reporter on staff.

Mommy Musings – Together Everyone Achieves More

Oakdale Elementary Schools are once again at the ready for their annual Jog-a-Thon events this Friday, October 10. It is 'the' quintessential fundraiser for the Parent Teacher Clubs of each elementary school. I borrowed the theme from this year's event to title this column. I like it. Together Everyone Achieves More or TEAM is the slogan which will appear on the ever popular jog shirts this year.

Releasing The Toxins

A few weeks back I shared my struggle with a passion for eating. First, I must clarify … I'm not what one would call a 'foodie,' my palate is pretty simple. Fine dining is nice and fun on occasion, my previous piece was primarily about my love of simple fresh foods - produce and proteins … And of course water. Lots and lots of water.

They Did It Again

Each year I pen this piece or one similar, I think the same thing ... I need to put this topic to rest. Then- before I know it- I'm faced once again with the task and challenge of the birthdays. Yes, plural, the celebration of birth of both my children 24 hours apart (with three years in between).
