Happy Everything…

Happy Everything…

Well my lovely ladies, it’s that time of year again- christmas, holiday season, Nat King Cole and reindeers. It’s also the time where I close up the blogging shop for two weeks. Yup, I do. I rest my kepi (that’s Hebrew for head), and come back rejuiced with fresh content in January.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Erica Diamond New Brand Ambassador For LE CHÂTEAU

ANNOUNCEMENT: Erica Diamond New Brand Ambassador For LE CHÂTEAU

I am finally able to reveal some exciting news– I am the new brand ambassador for Le Chateau. It has been a long story in the making…

I remember shopping at Le Chateau when I was 16 years old – the Sweet Sixteen days. How my mother let me out of the house in crushed velvet bustiers and “hot pants” (remember the short shorts that barely covered your ….), I’ll never know. I guess it was what we wore back then! Then I stopped shopping there for many years, thinking that I was too old, or that the quality wasn’t up to par. Thinking that the clothes were for young girls, and not for a mother or businesswoman.

The Shooting In Newtown

I will not post any pictures, videos, or clips of today’s elementary school shooting- the biggest tragedy and devastation this world has seen in decades. My heart bleeds for the families, and I am crying as I hold my children extra tight right now.

I want only to quote Michael Moore, and then I’ll be done.

“The way to honor these dead children is to demand strict gun control, free mental health care, and an end to violence as public policy.” – Michael Moore

2012: A WomenOnTheFence Year in Review

Welcome to the home stretch of 2012. Another year down- CAN YOU BELIEVE? This year was, without a doubt, an interesting year. As has become somewhat of a yearly tradition on WomenOnTheFence.com, for the new and old readers, I recap our year.

How Hard is Too Hard?

How Hard is Too Hard?

Today I turn to you for your feedback, asking how you parent in these types of situations. Today, our topic is: how hard is too hard to push our kids? Where is the line between too tough, and not tough enough? (Insert word coddling, as my husband put it this morning, accusing me of not being tough enough).

Happy Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah

As we light the first candle on the menorah tonight, the flickering Hanukkah lights are a reminder of the struggle, courage, and fragile triumphs of the Jewish people. May it serve as a reminder, that after darkness, always comes light. Wishing you love, light, peace, happiness, and a BRIGHT Hanukkah.

On a LIGHTer note, I told my son how incredible the Shrek candle was on the right, to which he replied, “Mom, it’s a cactus.”

Ugh. #BadMommyMoment
