Role Mommy on the Run
I bet that if someone would have told me 10 years ago when I first started blogging that I'd be featured in Costco Connection as a blogging expert, I would have said they were insane. But you see, that was before I logged my 10,000 hours as a blogger and learned a thing or two about cultivating online relationships, identifying bloggers who are genuine and talented and finding a home for me to share stories about the people and experiences in my life that I truly cherish. ...

In the summer, I love making use of fresh, local corn but I have recently become obsessed with using corn nuts in all my dishes for an extra crunch. As always, I have added in seeds and dried fruit for extra flavor. Make a big batch and enjoy for a few meals! ... Read more
When it comes to commuting in New York City, I like to fancy myself as the ultimate navigation expert. I know how to traverse the streets of Manhattan via subway, bus and even pedicab. But when it comes to parking, you definitely need to up your game - especially if you decide to drive into the city during your workweek. ... Read more
How many arguments did you get into with your parents growing up about not monopolizing the house phone? Call waiting was the greatest invention as far as my mom was concerned. I could no longer be oblivious to the fact that someone else might be trying to contact her while I was yapping to friends about nonsense. Parents and kids just don't have those fights anymore. The busy signal has become virtually obsolete and since anyone and everyone has their own mobile phone, there is no need to quibble about whose call is more important. And while technology has eliminated that problem, it has created one far more severe. Those smartphones are creating a generation of socially awkward misfits that only know how to express themselves with their thumbs and not their mouths. I am shocked and somewhat dismayed by the inability of most teenagers to talk on the phone. I don't want to pat myself on the back too much, but I have actually been able to get my daughter to talk to her friends on the phone and even call potential employers for summer job opportunities. I'm still working on it with my son, but it is definitely moving in the right direction. ... Read more
I recently read an article in the New York Times about the generation that's striving to make a difference in our world. They're called Generation Z and I recently met an extraordinary teen who embodies the Generation Z spirit -- Jack Jones, an 18 year old high school senior and student athlete who has travelled to Africa every summer where he has learned the importance of preserving and protecting nature. The youngest of four children, Jack has just published a inspiring new children's book that helps raise awareness and educate children and their parents about the importance of saving Black Rhinos. ...

It started innocently enough. I caught a few promos of a new show featuring Sutton Foster and Debi Mazar and I was intrigued. A show about Liza, 40 something divorcee who was struggling to break back into the publishing world after a 15 year hiatus. Sounded totally plausible. But then, there was the twist. After being interviewed by the dreaded GenX nemesis...Millennials, Liza was doomed. She was deemed irrelevant, old, a mom who should just give up and pack it in. That is until she went out drinking with her BFF Maggie and they run into a 26 year old tattoo artist who actually thinks Liza is the same age as he is. ... Read more
