Ever wonder if Cinderella was exaggerating her tale of woe because she was a teenager. Before we go our merry way villianizing stepmothers and portraying sea witches as bitches â€“ have we taken a moment to look at things from anotherâ€™s perspective?
Itâ€™s hard to be a teenager, especially in a culture of mean girl subtle bullying. I have a vague memory of being a teenage girl. I knew everything; my parents were morons. Or were theyâ€¦ Continue reading
Preface: I am not a doctor. But I believe in medicine. Science exists whether I believe it or not. My children exist today because of the miracles of modern medicine. Do I believe weâ€™ve achieved the end all of scientific advancements? Of course not. But do I think we should disregard current advancements due to the misinformed beliefs of a Playboy Bunny? Nope.

I write a monthly column over atÂ AlliOSNews. Itâ€™s a techie site â€“ extolling all the goodies and gunpowder on the Apple OS. (SHINY TOY!) Iâ€™m TechMom. And these are my stories on how technology is really used. This is what you must deal with, as I am a Silicon Valley nerd by day.
Iâ€™m well aware itâ€™s Thursday. TechMom Tuesday is typically published the first Tuesday of every month, (it was published last Tuesday as our TechFamily takes the new year by storm). I reserve the right to rant more or less as the technical goings-on, wellâ€¦go on. Continue reading

However, with the exception of the poor abused laundry machine forced to scrub the soiled garments of twins who refuse to potty train, this is a tale of the Walt Disney Classic. Continue reading
Good news. All the emergency notification alarms in our house work.
It was bright and early Sunday morning. I had two sprightly and awake muppets â€“ who do not understand the concept of a lazy Sunday. Perhaps it was the lack of caffeine in my system prior to the dayâ€™s dawn, but I was suddenly struck by inspiration to have a stereotypical suburban family morning.
Mickey Mouse pancakes for everyone! Continue reading
So either our boys arenâ€™t picky eaters or we need to be paying more attention to their social skills. The following was the dinner conversation on Tuesday night.
In either case, weâ€™ll be waiting by the phone for our Parents of the Year accolades. And not likely adopting a goldfish anytime soon. Continue reading
So I hear the Northeast is experiencing a bit of a snow flurry. Nevertheless, the boys and I got bundled up for our morning adventure â€“ gloves, scarves, and a Cheshire Cat hat for me â€“ it was 34 degrees and cold.
While out and about we encountered a fellow parent. The expected mundane chatter about weather ensued. The frozen tundra blanketing the other side of the country came up.
â€œI guess theyâ€™re Finding Nemo,â€ I chortled. (I know, Iâ€™m sure there are PLENTY of terrible puns going around. But thatâ€™s what happens when the media nicknames a storm â€œNemo.â€) Continue reading
I know it’s Wednesday here – but yesterday was Tuesday. So I was hanging out over at AlliOSNewsÂ – sharing my techie thoughts for the monthly TechMom Tuesday installment.
Enjoy. Continue reading
*Disclaimer. The clock time in that Mile 12 photo is the actual race time. Not my time. Subtract 45 minutes for my time. Because I started the race in corral F. And we had to wait for A-E to go first. Clearly they were slow.
At 9:30 a.m. yesterday morning I reflected upon my day. I had already run 13.1 miles.
â€œWhy?â€ inquired a concerned cousin. â€œWere you in grave danger?â€
