The Trump Era Twilight Zone

Where do I even begin. Is anyone keeping track of the absolutely outlandish and ridiculous thing the administration has pulled? It feels as though we are on year 10 of Trumps presidency… I can’t possibly go through the timeline of all of his craziness, so let’s just recap the week of alternate reality administration we…

The mental load of motherhood

Something I was mentally prepared for when I had a baby was something I think EVERY mother expects and EVERY mother gets warned about. You will be busy. You will have to keep a constant watch on baby and have a million things you always have to do because your time is now dictated by…

What kids need to know about Money

There is more to teaching kids about money then the philosophy that money doesn’t grow on trees. While I fully stand behind Dr. Phil’s rule that kids should not be involved in matters they can not control (money troubles, adults arguing, etc.) , I do believe that it is never too early to teach them how…
