The One Lesson Our Kids Aren’t Taught In School

The One Lesson Our Kids Aren’t Taught In School

I have been obsessed with Trey Parker and Matt Stone ever since I can remember. It’s not that I even watched South Park – the hit show they created. It’s simply them together. I’ve seen them interviewed numerous times, and they are sheer genius. They think completely out of the box, and they trust each other’s instincts so intensely, that their quiet confidence and creative energy is palpable when you watch them. Simply put, I would die to have dinner with them.

When I opened my computer this morning and browsed Facebook, I came across Facebook friend Adam Braun’s page and noticed a link he had shared. It was a link from Upworthy, a site I frequently visit. And there was a video produced by Trey and Matt. Here it is.

Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents

Childhood can be a frightening and uncertain time for kids, and some mild anxiety is part and parcel with growing up in a fast-paced world. What many parents don’t realize, though, is just how many children are affected by clinically recognized anxiety disorders, and that their own anxiety can be a contributing factor to their children’s struggles.

Our book Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents tackles this complicated issue head on, with a fresh and somewhat unconventional approach to helping both kids and parents who are suffering from the effects of an anxiety disorder or anxious disposition.

Microsoft OneNote: Great News for iPhone, iPad and Mac Lovers!

Hello ladies! As most of you know, I have been a proud Brand Ambassador for Microsoft Office for a few years now. Why was this the perfect partnership for me? Cuz not a day has gone by in 20 years that I haven’t lived on one of Office’s many programs: Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and most recently, OneNote.

Dealing With Difficult In-Laws

Welcome back, ladies! Today is a good day. It was a clean sweep for my Montreal Canadiens last night who beat Tampa Bay in four straight games to proceed to Round 2 of the playoffs, AND my boys went back to school this morning. This is me happy dancing! Hallelujah on both fronts.

Happy Passover, Happy Easter and a Blogging Break

Happy Passover, Happy Easter and a Blogging Break

Hello beautiful ladies. Happy Friday!

Just a quick note to wish those celebrating a very Happy Passover. Wishing you wonderful times spent with family, friends and matzo. 😉

I’m never one to judge what others do in their personal lives, so therefore, I thought this was quite funny. It’s amazing how much hypocrisy lives out there.

39 Is Gonna Be Fine

39 Is Gonna Be Fine

So, my husband calls me URGENTLY on Friday and tells me that I must call Visa immediately, as it appears my credit card has been frauded. Visa was unable to reach me at home and they needed to verify suspicious transactions. He gives me the number to call ASAP and tells me to ask for Nelly.

I hang up the phone while en route home from carpool and call the number. I ask for Nelly as told, and proceed to ask, “What happened to my credit card?”

14 Surefire Morning Rituals to Start Your Day Right

Mornings are not easy. Doesn’t it make you wonder why those people in the coffee commercials are always ecstatic to roll out of bed, open their window drapes, and start the daily grind?

But more than just a perfect cup of coffee, there are tons of morning habits you can do to start AND end your day right.

The Black Bra

Girls, a little “Hump” in your Hump Day… no pun intended. 😉 My mother in law forwarded this to me a while back, and if you’ve been with your man as long as I have, you might just love this. Please don’t take it too literally.
