Those would be good stalker moments. I want to stalk men and see what they DO all day!

Praying is good medicine. You are right - her positivity inspires greatness. I know it is hard not to cry and normally I would say let it out! But you have to take care of yourself, for your family and friends. I'm here if you need anything, anything at all. Hugs.

You should be very proud!

I grew up in a house where wheat germ was a treat...needless to say I hoarded candy and chips whenever I got my hands on them. Moderation is the key, I agree. That being said, I am on a serious challenge to eat more whole foods and less processed foods. My son decided a few years ago that "he doesn't eat fruit". I HAVE to change that. I'm setting the example by cutting out coffee (I switched to tea a few months ago and feel great) and am trying out green smoothies. There is a lot that we can't control about our health, but we can control what goes in our bodies. As a cancer survivor, I feel like lifestyle and eating are big priorites. Stacy, if you want to meet up for a smoothie, let me know! Good for you :)

I agree with Robyn - there should be no correction of art (or other creation) in preschool. This is a formative time for self-esteem. Let them play and they will learn more!

I've loved reading everyone's posts, especially since the moms writing here are moms of teens, tweens, kindergartners, babies and grown women. It is such an important topic and our girls have to deal with more issues than ever.

The books "Where Did I Cone From?" and "Whats Hapeening To Me?" might be good ones to start with. From the 70's, but kind of keeps it light. Picture books, not everything you might ever need to know. The Body Scoop for Girls is something I'm sending to my niece (she is 15), but it's great to know it's there when we are ready! Thanks for participating in the SV Moms Group Book Club!
Thanks for this! My daughter is sick today and I have been traveling and out of touch with the news on this (darn overflowing email inbox). Reading the details now..

Haha, maybe now you will get to know all that your lovely daughters (and husband) are saying that you have been misunderstanding the past few years! You are wise to realize you shouldn't be left in the dark on this one. And I predict you'll have a wonderful time. Me, jealous? Yes! I'm with Akemi...I want to learn French in Paris! Maybe we can all go there next :)

Ugh.... Awful! I'm so sorry it wasn't a more pleasant trip. You deserve a makeup...perhaps without kids! On an airplane! I love your positivity...it could have been worse, ha!

I was at the park last fall with the kids when a police car chase came calmly around the corner. It was a slow chase because they realized it was a dead end and they were caught. There were about 4 cop cars and it was pretty exciting. My first inclination was to Get. The. Kids. Away. Hello? Car chase...possible gun shots, etc? Luckily it was pretty tame and over quite quickly. Many of the kids were oblivious. It is amazing how much can be going on around them that goes unnoticed when they are immersed in their play. On another note, I would be happy to have your husband around in an emergency. Compassion goes a long way.

Wow, you're a Super Mayor?! I am not ever a mayor....but I do enjoy a little foursquare. I check in mostly at Yoga Source in Los Gatos. Not disclosing the kids' school and my house...I do feel pretty private about where I live and where my kids go to school. I do think its fun, but it certainly doesn't reflect my entire life, which I think is interesting, because I'm sure this company is trying to amass info for marketing and advertising purposes about what people do and where people go. Will people check in at adult video stores or pawn shops? Hmmm...probably not too many. It is selective, in other words. See you at BlogHer, where we'll be checking into all the hot spots together!

I remember my "boyfriend" from when I was 5. He said he was going to marry me. I wasn't so sure...We moved away, but I do always remember him as my first boyfriend. It is funny - he married someone with my name! We did meet up as teenagers when his family came through the town we moved to and it was awkward, having the history, as innocent and play-like as it was. I actually think our parents talking about "us" and teasing us had far more of an impact than the actual play love thing we were doing. After all, mist 5 year olds play marriage on their own anyway! Don't make it a big deal and hopefully it will just be another little game she plays.

Happy Birthday Paige! I emphathize - as moms we are always doing so much for everyone else and it takes conscious effort to put ourselves back on the list. It's a constant struggle - may this next year you enjoy...yourself!

I have three too (the third was an accident after the twins!) and while I wouldn't have it any other way, it certainly complicates things. I can't imagine having more. To each their own, but I completely agree that our overriding concern needs to be for our kids. As parents, it is our responsibility to make decisions not just for ourselves, but for the good of our families - husbands and kids. I have to say you have struck a nerve with me, reminding me (once again!) that I need to take the stress level down a notch. It has been a goal of mine to do that, but it is hard - I am a motivated and ambitious person. I have to constantly remind myself that my family is my priority. Even though they are right there! That's why I force myself to do parent participation preschool and Art Vista, etc. to be involved with my kids on a very hands-on basis. Good reminders - hope it will touch someone planning to have a large family of the real stresses it can bring. Thanks :)

I'm a cancer survivor too (I was 28, no kids yet - 9 year survivor now, 3 kids!) and there is no RIGHT thing to say. It honestly might change with the day. The important thing is to be there. And be consistently there. Don't forget about her when she seems to be doing ok with chemo and the rest. And I agree with Cancer Mommy, expressing your feelings is perfectly ok. Getting involved with activism, walks, runs, whatever - it is ALL GOOD. Another great site for your friend is http://motherswithcancer.wordpress.com We can all help our friends fight. Just by being there.

So crazy! I look at my 6 year old and think "where did my baby go," but I know he is still a good snuggler. A new chapter for your family - enjoy the here and now....and the memories!

I love the magic, but I agree that it is all being taken much too far these days. Especially with this latest St. Patrick's Day. I don't remember any leprechaun happenings - we just wore green or got pinched. The backpack fairy I did this year...mainly because my kids were nervous about starting kindergarten and it was a distraction. Not that it helped, really! They promptly forgot about it and regained their nerves. All this stuff is invented by the party companies, right??? Commercialize every single holiday and they are sitting high on the hog!

I'm a fan of Gwen too :) Awesome, eh? I am much happier and focused when I write down my 3 most important things to do each day and do them. (Read "The Power of Less" by Leo Babauta, author of zenhabits.net) I find I have more time to...smile, pay attention to the kids...I actually get MORE done, because I am not sucked into putting out fires.

You're right, us moms all need to take a page of your new book! I feel a little selfishness coming on...but, oh, that mom guilt is so strong, isn't it?!

I think I missed my almost 4-year-old's latest round of vaccinations. Bad mommy! (She did get the swine flu vaccination.) I need to get on top of this and avoid the wallet crunch - thanks!

I just went to an absolutely crazy birthday party yesterday. Champagne, sushi, petting zoo, cupcakes, pinata, favors, insanity! It was like a small wedding. I know we got carried away when our kids were really young, treating them like they were little gods and goddesses. But we have scaled back in recent years. Yes, we still do fun birthday parties, but this last year we skipped on the goodie bags for homemade bookmarks and went for a fun activity (ice skating) with just a few friends. Homemade birthday cakes go a long way - my kids love to pick out their theme and help me make it. These are the things they will remember, the expensive stuff is just...stuff. It won't last.

Oh, I SO need a mani/pedi! I get one every couple of months when a friend forces me out, but I sorely need a treatment right now. Good for you for getting yourself out for some me time!
