It's 3 pm, and I can't remember what I'm supposed to be doing

For months, I've become interested in my son's memories: What will his first long-term memory be? What memories from this age will he retain? But at some point, I've realized that I've started losing some of my memories. I think back to my childhood, and parts of it just aren't there: There are pictures of vacations I don't remember, names of friends that escape me, everyday moments of home life that I…See More

"Lauren, I couldn't agree with you more. It's almost sickening how most things have been turned into how sexy you can be. I am a mother of two little boys and I never want them to look at me and think I dress too provocative. I want them to…"

What's your stress hour look like?

Most nights, when I get home from work, I immediately start cooking dinner. The first hour after I get home is a bit of a blur: There is food to prepare, people to greet and those morning chores to complete (if I didn't finish them earlier). If I can get dinner on the table by 6:45, then it is a really good day.But the…See More

Taking a page out of a millennial's book

A few weeks ago, my son and I went through his bookshelf. We pulled out all the books that he identified as "baby books," and ones that he didn't want to read. My little guy can read lots of words by himself now, and although he hasn't moved on to reading himself full books yet, I want his shelves to be ready for him. So, we said good-bye to the "I Love Daddy Because" or "Count to 10" books and took them to our second-hand bookshop.…See More

Stay out of my kitchen

I like to cook. It is one of those skills I came by through watching my mother (thanks, Mom) and with a lot of practice in making meals when I was younger. It is something that I enjoy, find challenging and try to share with my son.When I'm just making a regular dinner on a weeknight,…See More

Halloween is my favorite holiday. It takes place in my favorite season, I love seeing all the children dressed up in costumes, the candy is plentiful and everyone is happy. My wonderful husband takes our son trick-or-treating and I dress up and hand out candy at the door. But here's the thing:



I don't want…
