Sticking it to Father Time

Two rookies hurtle into the unfamiliar

No Comments 01 June 2010

I’ve noticed lately that time is starting to pass more quickly than my brain can fully comprehend. I find myself stuttering every time I say, “Two thousand, uh, 10.” I frequently misrepresent my age, unintentionally subtracting a year or two. I think of the ‘90s as being “a few years ago.” (News flash: Even 1999 […]

Raiding the pantry to keep your house clean … sort of

No Comments 01 June 2010

If you should, as I did recently, open the pantry door to find your 3-year-old spraying window cleaner into a cup while her pal swills it down, I hope you remember, as I did, prior to calling poison control, that it’s just vinegar and water. There are plenty of good reasons to use white vinegar […]

A Cow Says Moock, by Alastair Moock

No Comments 01 June 2010

My daughter asks for the CD of “her friends,” as she calls them, singing nursery rhymes every single time we get in the car, so I needed something that would entertain her and not drive me batty. Thank God for Boston-based singer/songwriter Alastair Moock. A Cow Says Moock was inspired by Moock’s twin daughters so […]

If Holden Caulfield were in My Classroom, by Bernie Schein

No Comments 01 June 2010

If my stepdaughter didn’t attend The Paideia School, I’m not sure I would believe everything Bernie Schein writes in If Holden Caulfield were in My Classroom. Paideia is different from any public school, and probably from most private schools. The teachers work in unorthodox ways, and the students thrive because of it. Schein has taught […]

Sideshow performers take hobby to the stage

1 Comment 01 June 2010

When Chris “Capt. Stab-Tuggo” Steele and Elaina “Maybelle” Steele began sideshow performing, they had to consider the effects it would have on their two girls, Payton and Ava. They sat down with Payton, the older of the two, and explained that the crazy things she’d been watching Mom and Dad do for years at home […]

Atlanta Rollergirls balance motherhood, passion for skating

No Comments 01 June 2010

An elbow gets thrown into a gut; yells erupt as the jammer sneaks through an opening, moving fast, avoiding eager hands that grab out as she whips past. A crowd of ravenous, crazy-eyed rollergirls races behind her, moving together like a writhing beast; some blocking to protect her, others roaring forward to prevent her escape. […]

Give new life to objects with decoupage

No Comments 01 June 2010

I am not crafty. In fact, up until a few weeks ago, I didn’t even know how to spell decoupage, much less know what it was. But as I perused the Internet looking for ways to utilize leftover Christmas cards, I found a number of decoupage projects that looked interesting. Decoupage is a way of […]
