I should have seen it coming.

Mommy Musings - Spokes And Folks

Familiar faces will once again retire into the everyday life of our community. There is no question that the words 'You look so familiar,' will now haunt Connie and Mel Sanguinetti as they wait in line at the grocery store or sit in a corner booth waiting to eat lunch. If nothing else they're sure to be stopped by a parent or two stating 'We bought our bikes from you for years.'

Mommy Musings - No ‘I’ In Team

Just like any other business we here at the paper experience our fair amount of turnover or for some 'turn around.' A fair share of the staffers here (myself included) have departed from this building only to later return to its 122 S. Third Ave address. In all honesty ... It's just that good of a gig.

Mommy Musings - Invites And Commitment

This week's column was supposed to be about the topic of commitment. Not commitment in the way of relationships, but the struggle there seems to be with accepting an invitation.

Mommy Musings - Up At Bat

I've always been fascinated by human behavior. It's interesting to watch two people or a group of people interact with one another. The body language, facial expressions, even words chosen.

Mommy Musings - Travels To The Big City

I recently returned from a trip to New York City. It was an amazing experience, an opportunity I could not pass up. I was invited to be one of the chaperones on the Oakdale High School Drama trip to NYC.

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.
