About Allison

Allison just returned from NYC where she received the Mom of the Year Award for her tireless devotion to all things motherhood. And then she woke up, realized her son was late for pre-school, her daughter hadn't had a bath in 3 days and her own eyebrows looked like they belonged on Chewbacca from Star Wars. On a day-to-day basis she juggles all the tough stuff that most Moms do, but tries to remember that at the end of the day it isn't about how perfect her life appears to be to everyone else, it's about how perfect it is for HER that counts.

Thinking Thursday: On Nature vs. Nuture

Do you ever think back to that Biology class you had in high school, to that day when the topic of “Heredity vs. Environment” was introduced? I loved that session, and I loved it again when it came up in my college Psych class. I loved it again when I came across it in a […]

Mom Fail Friday: The One Where I Yell A Lot

I find that I am really struggling with what I have recently heard termed “Mommy Deafness.” You know what I am referring to? If a friend or neighbor asks your 3 or 4-year old to pick up a toy, or stop pedaling their bike vigorously toward the street they oblige quickly, willingly, sometimes even with […]

Thinking Thursday: On Accepting Change

All the while that I was fretting—I wasn’t thinking about the most important thing—was my son happy? Was he building strong relationships with his teacher and his friends? Did he look forward to going to school?

Are The Children Being Properly Buckled?

It happens every day as the pre-k pick-up line of cars inches slowly forward. Two classes of 18 or so children, a car for each one, and you do the math. That’s a lot of cars pulling into line, creeping up toward the door where a teacher walks a student up to the vehicle and […]
