Three kids 10 and under. Two working parents. One crazy, golden retriever. Every day we choose to accept the challenge to get out the door, on time and without screaming at one another. Yes, we are not battling sleep-deprived teenagers … yet. But I have to say our track record is good. My kids have […]

I had a really bad day yesterday. Like REALLY bad. My kids were driving me crazy. Noise was driving me crazy. EVERYTHING was driving me crazy. I felt overwhelmed and ready to not just lose the cape, but to turn it in for ever. I never knew how hard motherhood could be. I never realized […]
I recently came across an article on parenting in this new age of tech. In short, it detailed the digital world our kids have always known – a place where anything and everything can be googled, a finger swipe moves you from here to there, and selfies and smart phone pics happen daily. To say my […]
I don’t know many kids who LOVE homework. And let’s be honest, parents are typically fans either. Nightly math worksheets, spelling sentences, special projects. Ugh! Good times, right? But as a parent, I do believe I can help each of my three my kids conquer the homework routine with a few basic tips and tricks. […]
The New Year is not happy for everyone. Shorter, darker days, brutally cold weather, and recovering from all of the holiday “cheer” can make January and February tough days for many people. And as a busy mom, with the craziness of the holidays behind us, and so much to do to recover from two to […]

Talking to Coach LizzyMc about some Mommy Energy!
I never talked to anyone about how sad I was after my first child was born. Looking back on it, I’m sure I had post postpartum depression (PPD) and I didn’t realize it. We had feeding/nursing and sleeping issues, all very normal new mommy issues, but ours were compounded by extreme external events. Within three […]
