This Yiddisheh mama has a major confession to make. I’ve been holding this one in, so bear with me. It comes from a lifetime ago. You SAHM’s, like my Mrs., oh how I want to be you. Let me schmear (spread) some broad, sweeping caveats, loudly and clearly, that you, by far, have the single hardest job...

This past week, I avoided watching the inauguration, and instead, had lunch with a girlfriend. Then I continued to avoid watching it by running errands and drinking iced coffee in the sunshine while I worked. I suspect if I’d started watching all the coverage, I would have started drinking alcohol instead, so avoiding that kind...

I don’t know if everybody gets it, but I’m grateful for my divorce. Or, I guess I should say, my separation. My divorce isn’t yet final, but it’s on it’s way. And I’m thankful for that. This is the sort of thing you’re not supposed to say. Maybe it’s right up there with having hidden...

My son is a strapping young man. He’s handsome. He’s confident. He’s burly. He’s a jokester with a soft heart. He’s got a mess of wispy blonde curls and bright blue eyes. He’s like the prankster you grow to love (and excuse from all his pranks.) He kisses and hugs with wild abandon, and speaks...

No, it’s not that you’re beautiful, nor is it that you’re the hottest POA in here although these are both very nice things to hear in their own personalized ways of course. Just in general, food for thought, these are nice things to hear on any day or well everyday (okay, realistically, bi-monthly or at...

I’ve learned quite a lot in the last year. On top of navigating the challenges of motherhood, I began the slow and steady building of my personal health coaching business, MindBodyBespoke. I learned how to make a website, how to market myself, how to use social media to my advantage, and much more. What I did...

At a certain point in your parenting experience, you stop dreading snow days. You no longer have to spend every snow day entertaining your children with sledding, art projects, and your very own circus acts. Your kids stop screaming at each other. And you. No one is going stir crazy. Instead, you relish the opportunity...

If you’re like me you grew up on Disney. I loved the princesses, I sang the songs, I watched the movies – hell, I even bought the soundtrack to Aladdin when I was around 14-years-old (don’t you judge me!). But as I got older I realized that not only did Disney give me totally unrealistic expectations of...

How many times have you heard someone tell you, “My child would never do something like that,” only to know that the child in question is guilty of the wrong-doing in question? No matter how old you are, no matter what your intentions, it is always best to mind your own business when it comes...

There are days that I still think that I am 22.  Really.  Maybe it is the delusion of old age.  Maybe it is emotional survival.  Maybe it is that everything after 22 happened in the blink of an eye. And then there is today. Today, my college roommates messaged me to reminisce about the olden...

Those are words you should never say to another woman (ok maybe not NEVER because there could always be an exception to the rule, but Be CAREFUL.) We all want to protect our friends. We all want them to be happy. But suggesting leaving a marriage that isn’t yours is a slippery slope! A marriage...
