Talking Openly with Your Teens

Talking Openly with Your Teens

When I was growing up, my mom was very open about “everything” — even stuff that I thought was embarrassing. She openly talked about body changes, drugs and relationships (sexual or otherwise). She was always an advocate for me and never doubted what I told her. Knowing that she was always on my side gave …

Lending an Ear to Our Teens

Lending an Ear to Our Teens

When I was a teenager, my parents were going through a long and drawn out divorce. As much as my mom loved me, she had three other children and a divorce to deal with, so I didn’t talk to her about the things I was going through. (This was the 1980s in an affluent Chicago …

Summer Fun

Summer Fun

I cannot believe my daughters have finished 3rd grade. Time sure does fly by. Summer camp is so expensive – especially since I have twins – so two other mothers and I are having the kids rotate houses every day. From 11 am to 5 pm, the kids swim, play board games, play with Barbie …

Keeping Your Kids Busy This Summer

Keeping Your Kids Busy This Summer

I cannot believe that summertime is here! While other parents have been planning for months what their kids will be doing this summer, I have procrastinated as usual. I’m a huge fan of downtime, but I expect my kids to be active. I also can’t have them just hanging around the house because I’m working …

Coming Up: Mom Confessions

Coming Up: Mom Confessions

Our next segment on the show is coming up on Thursday, June 30th! Barb and I came up with the idea of “Mommy Confessions” from experiences we have had with guests on our show. All too often, women are embarrassed about ways they have acted toward their kids or feel guilty about ways they may …

Nobody Is “The Perfect Mom”

Nobody Is “The Perfect Mom”

There is so much pressure on women with children today to be “the perfect mom.” We listen to other moms brag about when their child was potty trained (at six months? Really?) or how well they discipline their kids, and all the experts flood us with advice that we couldn’t possibly remember because we’re too …

Why New Moms Should Splurge on a Spray Tan or Blowdry!

Why New Moms Should Splurge on a Spray Tan or Blowdry!

I remember being a new mom – I was sleep deprived, still wearing my maternity jeans or sweat pants long after my twins were born, hair in a pony tail, and taking a shower seemed like a luxury. (I wish I had been made over by Gretta!) Years later, I now know that being a …

Advice for New Moms

Advice for New Moms

As Gretta now knows, once you have a baby, there is very little – if any – time for yourself. That includes time to sleep and get dressed! I remember living in a blue Juicy Couture sweatsuit after I had my first child. I thought I looked cute until my husband pointed out that sweats …

Do You Have Regrets?

Do You Have Regrets?

The other day the girls and I were having the best time and I felt an overwhelming sadness and regret that I did not have them earlier so that I would have more time with them. The girls said, “but then you wouldn’t have married daddy” and they were right. So I guess I am …

Are you the parent that screams on the sidelines?

Are you the parent that screams on the sidelines?

Are you the parent that screams on the sidelines of your kids sporting events? And you know I’m not talking about “go team” or “great job.” If you are that parent STOP! You are embarrassing your child and yourself and making your kid a nervous wreck! I was at my girls soccer tournament all weekend …

How I Keep My Girls Healthy and Active

How I Keep My Girls Healthy and Active

Keeping my girls healthy is the toughest challenge I have faced as a mom, especially for one of my daughters, who is a book worm and a complete foodie — not a great combo when trying to stay healthy. At our annual visit to the pediatrician, one of my twins was told she had to …

Being a Healthy Role Model

Being a Healthy Role Model

Healthy eating is something we are constantly struggling with in my house. My son is very thin and doesn’t eat enough protein. He exercises a lot because he is into sports, so that isn’t an issue, but I have to talk to him about making healthy choices when he eats. My daughter is the opposite. …

I Thought I Would Always Be “Cool” in My Children’s Eyes!

I Thought I Would Always Be “Cool” in My Children’s Eyes!

I remember being mortified by my mom on many occasions when I was younger. Sometimes it was something silly, like the long necklaces she used to wear that would hang around one breast. I’m sure no one else noticed, but somehow that would be SO embarrassing to me. Or the times she and her friends …

Could Embarrassing Your Kids Be A Good Thing?

Could Embarrassing Your Kids Be A Good Thing?

When I was growing up, my mom was an advocate for everyone who couldn’t stick up for themselves (and as we know, that’s a lot of people!). You can only imagine my embarrassment when we would be at the store and the salesperson would be rude to a foreign lady or an elderly woman and …
