Most working parents are occupied with work related tasks at least 40 hours a week, if not more. For me, it’s often many more given my line of work. My position also requires me to travel occasionally, sometimes more than I’d like. I personally love what I do, but at times it can be a... Read more »

I recently came across an interview with Tia Mowry that sparked my attention. She was quoted saying that she’s a” less traditional” parent than her twin.  After reading a little more into it, I realized that I too am a less traditional parent.

Are parents a burden for kid-free colleagues in the workplace?
I recently wrote a blog post about how parent-focused holidays like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day aren’t typically celebrated in the workplace. One of my readers replied with a perspective that I’ve personally never thought of. He shared that many kid-free adults may feel as if they already have to cater to us parents and... Read more »

Three holidays parents of toddlers would appreciate

The fourth quarter is my favorite time of year because of the back-to-back Holidays and birthdays in our household. My favorite holidays are those that bring loved ones together for fun times and good food. Although these holidays are great, they’re also exhausting to prepare for. If I could make up a holiday or two... Read more »

Reigniting the writer I used to be...
At one point in my life, I wrote for the sake of writing. I wanted to write novels and books of poetry for a living, and for fun. Besides maintaining my blog, and the mandatory writing I do for my career, I’ve pretty much given up on that dream. It isn’t because I no longer... Read more »

Flying 600 miles to trick-or-treat

SAHM...the job I never want
There’s been a lot of talk in the media lately about Stay-at-Home Moms (SAHM) who are now looking to go back into the workforce. At one point or another, these mothers decided to stay at home with the children and be mothers and/or wives around the clock. I tip my hat off to them, two... Read more »

Bulls Games and family travel.... its the little things in life

Bulls Games and family travel.... its the little things in life
Last night, Go-2-daddy and I attended our first Bulls game together. Despite the fact that we are both Chicago natives, we’d never been to a Bulls game. We had a great time mainly because of the atmosphere. The home team spirit and engagement of the fans is amazing, but what topped it off were the... Read more »
