The Diaper Debacle: Comparing brands, price and... →
Finding the right brand of diapers can be a challenge for new parents. We think they’re all the same until our first blow out occurs, or it’s 4 a.m. and we’re changing our newborns soaking wet clothes for the third time. Then we’re willing to try anything and spend any amount of money to find the “super” diaper. Just like not all diapers are created equal, neither are our children, SEX...

When You Hit a Sandbar →
Life’s full of sandbars, isn’t it; we’re going along our merry way and –BAM- out of the blue a Goliath stands before us! We’re taught if we are strong enough and work hard enough, nothing can stand in our way and we don’t challenge this way of thinking until we’re faced with a set of circumstances we are unprepared to navigate. Cliché’s like “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” and...

How to Pack for Family Vacation
by Katie Newingham If you’re a mother who underestimated the prep time involved in planning a family vacation the first go around and now you’re nearly obsessive compulsive about it, you’re not alone. I boarded my first plane with a 1-year-old, no stroller, no pack-n-play and only five diapers. I didn’t realize the time it takes to get a crying baby to sleep on a plane or the stress and...

Terrible Twos, the Tale Spin & the Rod?
As my daughter moves in to the “terrible twos,” my husband and I have been forced to have that conversation; the one that starts out with “Are we, or aren’t we going to spank her?” To be honest, I’m the one that brought it up. I think my husband just assumed we would. Most people feel strongly one way or the other about spanking, timeouts or other types of discipline. I on the other hand...

Do you feel like the worst mom? Read this... →
The most important thing I’ve learned so far being a mom is that we never get a day off! Even if we wake up on the wrong side of the bed, put our left shoe on first and lose our keys, we can’t lose our minds. But it’s tempting isn’t it? This is how I handled my no good, very bad day in the worst way possible…

It starts with a brisk sigh, the slight slam of a dishwasher door, a cold glance as she passes. The lack of subtlety in her actions is no accident and he knows this. To avoid further provocation, he doesn’t stare directly at her but he can feel her fixed eyeballs, shooting her contempt through him like a hot laser. Yet he continues sitting there, like a lump, gazing at a wonderful box...

True Freedom Means Overcoming Fear
The dirt spun from her tires on that narrow desert road behind our small cinder block home. She was gone in minutes; I didn’t hear from her for months. It was at the tender age of 6 years old, I experienced my first heartbreak, but the wound would grow deeper with each new birthday, holiday and school dance that passed without her being present. Though I now know her own fears drove...

American Children, Poster for Malnutrition
by Katie Newingham The poster child for malnutrition is changing in the minds of many Americans thanks to the hit reality television show, “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.” The mere mention of malnutrition a decade ago would spark images of emaciated children from third world countries, now the poster could be an obese child from any city in America. Mal or “bad” nutrition is the lack of...
Being the Best You, You Can Be
Having my daughter changed my life. Her laughter brings me more joy than chocolate, wine or a great movie. After she was born, I would tell people “she was the greatest movie ever made,” spending countless hours watching her every movement. But motherhood is not without its challenges. I never thought I’d make it through that first month. I was not prepared for a child who nursed every hour,...
