I live on the South Side of Chicago with my husband and two daughters.  When my oldest child was born, I decided to give up my accounting career and become a stay at home Mom.  My children attend public school and I am a product of CPS.  I have a passion for parenting and education.  I was on the design team for a public high school here in Chicago.  I am so excited to be blogging for ChicagoNow!

I am a very opinionated person, so blogging is right up my alley.  I’m not afraid to say what other people are thinking but would never say.  I started my blog in September 2011.  Some of my blogs are controversial because everyone has different parenting styles.  I believe in “Old School” parenting.  My children are not my friends and I expect them to fear me.  I’m not a “Tiger Mom” but I understand her methods.

If you enjoy reading politically correct blogs, you will be disappointed in my blog, but I encourage you to express your disappointment in the comments section. Feel free to contact me with questions, comments or suggestions at:
