When my daughter was an infant/toddler, I was your typical Type-A mom. I had multiple bags neatly filled with wipes, Kleenex, Neosporin and band-aids, just so I would not run out and be left hanging if some boo-boo popped up.... Continue reading

I think that I need to force myself to lunch instead of just having calls with people, that way I have to look presentable

Good point about rotating outfits. That may be my next move and seriously look whats in my closet and weed uneeded stuff and buying missing pieces and rotate.

After I was laid off last year and given the rather sad job market, I decided to start a blog to enhance my social media skills which was a gap on my resume. Who knew, I would end up enjoying... Continue reading

Thanks for the feedback sorry I did not respond sooner. I used to get emails when people made comments and I dont get them anymore. Yikes need to check into that or is it just me.

After the 2008 election, I needed an online outlet that would fill the void leftover from the gazillions of hours I had spent surfing from site to site to track the electoral votes. After reading about how Facebook was the... Continue reading

yes single parenting is hard, I so agree. Thanks for a great post. And thanks for giving kudos to Sandra for adopting. She is getting a lot of crap for adopting an african american which makes me sad. I am happy that she did and you are right about AA boys not being adopted at the same rate as AA girls. I know this from experience, as one adoption agency I went to stated that you could not choose the sex of your adopted child for that exact reason. http://www.nycsinglemom.com

Nice post. I am biracial (half African American and Japanese) and I love that NYC has the highest population of Jews in the country because it adds to the diversity and vibrancy of the city. I grew up in a predominantly white suburb and went to a predominantly white college which as you can imagine that there weren't that many jewish people. I did not really learn that much about the religion until I moved here. That said, I love that my daughter will have a completely different upbringing than me. She goes to school with jewish kids, knows about the different jewish holidays, heads off to camp that celebrates jewish holidays and now knows how to make challah bread. Thats the way it should be. http://www.nycsinglemom.com

Goodness, I have one and I thought we were busy. I am with you on keeping them engaged. There something to be said about keeping them busy and working their hearts and muscles. My parents just let us sit around watching tv after school even though we had swimming pool and tennis courts in walking distance from our house. Thats why we moved there. Unfortunately, my parents thought we go on our own. Right. TV vs playing tennis in 90 degree weather, what do you think we chose. Keep em moving.

I am glad you had a great time and your daughter comment was wonderful. Dont you just love them. On the other hand, I totally sympathize with you on being disappointed in not being able to go to Paris. I have been struggling with this for the last couple of year and even now. I really dont want to go to Disney World and want to go to Paris. Hey there's Disney Paris, right. Unfortunately, financially Orlando is helluva a lot cheaper than flying to Paris. Hang in there, you will get to Paris.

I have only received one invite with a "no gifts, please" note and thats because it was a family with 3 kids in a a one bedroom, they literally had no space. I kind of felt bad not bringing a gift, its seems unamerican, right but I also knew if I went against the note, the parents would have been cursing me behind back "what the h**l are we going to do with this toy". Although they dont seem like that kind of couple but who knows right. So I had my daughter draw a card with a cute note and called it a day.

I am not sure how this will impact our loves in the future or our childrens future but no matter they are parts of the bill that will ensure a lot of peoples financial lives will result in bankruptcy or being denied health care. Great post

i so agree with you Joe Klein should more concerned about ensuring our kids are getting more exercise. the whole notion that pop tart/doritos is healthier than someones home baked goods is insane. Plus the school makes less money. If he is so concerned about our kids health, they should limit the number of monthly bd parties . In the month, march my daughters lst grade class with have 3 separate BD party celebrations resulting in some sort of sugar product being brought 3x times and how many bakes sales this month. ZERO.

I agree KarenTV. Thats all I care about is the learning and if I was in their shoes, I would be taking valium everyday. Teachers truly have the toughest job in the world.

PS I forgot to mention that I am also afraid of my daughter's first grade teacher.

We were lucky in Kindergarten, my daughter had wonderful teachers but I know from talking to her and other parents that some of the kindergarten teachers in particular one specific was a yeller. My daughter could hear her across the hall thats how loud she was. To your point every kid is different, there are some kids who thrive in that environment and actually learn and some who sadly, and I feel bad for the kid and parents in which the child is traumatized. And this year, my daughter first grade teacher "yells" but my daughter likes her and she is learning tons. Go figure.
