On Tuesday I was fortunate to attend the Swiffer® Pet Event in NYC, recognizing the partnership between Swiffer® and the ASPCA in helping to find permanent homes for dogs and cats throughout the country. Last weekend, the ASPCA partnered with dozens of animal shelters to hold their 2014 Mega Match-A-Thon event, and  over 5000 animals [...]

As I shared last week, I am in the middle of making enhancements to Momof6 and across my social networks to make sure that all Moms have the tools they need to be prepared! This week I spent some time focusing on Momof6 over on YouTube, where I share tons of videos on how to [...]

Fo awhile now I’ve been wanting to freshen things up here on the blog. Not in a scrap-everything-I’ve-done-and-completely-rebrand kind of way…. (because that messes with your Pinterest traffic- big time!) but more of a let’s declutter-and-organize-the-site-so readers-can-find-my-good-stuff makeover. But before I got down to business on the cleaning up and organizing of my posts, I [...]

Guiding Kids to Navigate This Digital World

It’s really no wonder that my kids are constantly glued to some sort of a screen. Just look at me….. operating as a “role model”. I spend the better part of my day accompanied by my laptop- whether I am blogging, answering emails, making car pool arrangements for the kids, or even checking to see [...]

Last week I was working on a family photo collage for my in-laws for their 50th Anniversary celebration, and  I asked my kids to help me find some photos of themselves with their grandparents over the years.

You hear that? THAT’S the sound of September…. (a line from one of my favorite back to school TV ads). So yes, it’s true- the kids are back in school…. and while I am happy to have some quiet time back during the day so that I can work and get a few things done [...]

In a flurry of activity this morning, and filled with much enthusiasm, the kids all headed back in school. I kissed them goodbye with mixed feelings…. happy for the fresh start of a new school year, but sad that summer went by so quickly! (And I am sure that many of you feel the same [...]

Happiness…. A Great Summer!

Thumbnail image for Happiness…. A Great Summer!

Where I live, the kids don’t head back to school until after Labor Day, so we are still basking in the end-of-summer goodness that is hanging out with friends, playing in the backyard and staying up way too late (my good intentions of having the kids back to within a 1/2 hour of their regular [...]

I have been an Oprah fan…. For forever. I watched the Oprah show since the beginning. I’ve been a subscriber to O Magazine since the inaugural issue. I have always loved her interviews, her coverage of hot topics and issues, but most especially the way that she inspires people to live their best life. Whether [...]
