Brussels sprouts, pancetta and crispy shallot pizza

Brussels sprouts, pancetta and crispy shallot pizza

It’s September, but that doesn’t mean that the best of the fresh produce is behind us. I can’t get enough Brussels sprouts at this time of year, so I’m using them in any way I can dream up. This weekend, that meant Brussels sprouts, pancetta and crispy shallot pizza. This amazing dish will be in...

A collision of first and lasts

A collision of first and lasts

My sweet Katie,
Tonight I plugged the drain of my bathtub, squirted in a healthy dose of bubble bath, turned the not-too-hot water on and lined your Polly Pockets up on the edge of the tub.
This was probably the millionth bath you’ve taken in your seven years.
It seems that so much of mothering is focused...

Give and get with Schoola!

Give and get with Schoola!

Okay, it’s no secret that I’m more than a little in love with Schoola and the work their doing to help schools in need. So now, I want to show you some super cute looks you can easily pull together from the site. A dressy outfit for Matthew would total $35, with $14 going back to his...

Time for Schoola

If you asked me to draw a perfect circle, without even lifting the pencil, I can already tell you that it would come out looking more like a square. If you gave me a mound of clay and asked me to shape it into a mug, I can assure you it would be lopsided and...

On and on and on

If we’re friends on Facebook, I’m sorry (#notsorry) for flooding your stream with Listen to your Mother updates, links, videos and endlessly gushing. Because this show? Oh, my friends…you can’t know the power of LTYM unless you attend a show. And each year, that gets easier to do. What began as a one-city show has now...

How?

How?

She turned to me at dinner, her eyes locked on mine. Can I tell you something, Mommy? Her face, so vulnerable, so engaged. Every night, after you and Daddy tuck me in, I sit up in bed, I fold my hands and I pray. It’s funny how you think you know everything there is to know about your...

Magic at Play, indeed!

Magic at Play, indeed!

We leave for Disneyland for the Disney Social Media Moms conference tomorrow. Or if you’re Katie or Matthew, we leave in 20 hours and 23 minutes. We’ve officially entered the oh-my-gosh-we-have-so-much-to-do-before-we-leave stage of travel prep. But Disney and Kohl’s made packing for the kids easier by sending over a gift card to stock up on their new...
