Thank You, Teenagers (This is not a paid advertisement.)

My eyes were sore from rolling them last year. I finally stopped reading when I saw, “I’m thankful for the love...

Hybrid Rasta Mama

Cold and flu season is in full swing and that brings sore throats and coughs of all kinds. I don’t know about you, but I become a big ol’ baby when I have a sore throat. Aside from intestinal illnesses, there is nothing that sidelines me more than a sore...

Hybrid Rasta Mama

Show of hands. Who here has tried cranberry and gingerbread rolled into one delicious somewhat sweet, somewhat spicy, somewhat tart treat? Oh, you haven’t? Well then…let’s change that right now!

These Moms, They Don’t Know Me

I don’t recognize any of the faces at pick-up. It’s been two years since kindergarten, and I stand in the hallway like the nanny in our small town of well-dressed, Volvo-driving mommies. They chat like old friends, tossing the occasional glance my way. I know there are checking me out, wondering which kid I...

Ironic Reactions and Ravioli Season

I’ve noticed lately that when I read certain stories in the news, my first reaction isn’t always…typical. In fact, I guess it could be called ironic. Like, for instance, the other day I read a story about a dad who kidnapped his 9-year old son in Seattle instead of returning him to his ex-wife,...

Small Steps to a Healthier Pet: Eliminating Artificial Colors

Nov 17, 2014

Hybrid Rasta Mama

My friend, Shannon, is a nutritionist, and she is one of the most non-judgemental people I know. I always think that when I speak to someone who is so dedicated to putting healthy things into her body that she’s made a career of it, I’ll be sized up every which...

This Is What Happened When I Started Brushing My Hair, Again

Nov 13, 2014

Hybrid Rasta Mama

Guess what? I didn’t brush my hair for, er, about 25 years. Yes, you read that right. 25 years without one single hair brush touching my locks. Heck, I didn’t even own a hairbrush during that time. I have curly hair and from everything I read I concluded that brushing...
