Baby Fever Is Real – Help Me Shut It Down

Baby Fever is Real @Tinystepsmommy

Baby fever is real. It’s a scientifically proven feeling that can creep in from time to time. In my late twenties and early thirties, it was all I could think about. I wanted a big family. I wanted to surround myself with little ones and absorb all of their baby cuteness. I didn’t care about […]

Darkness VS Light: A Battle of Wills

Darkness vs light - A battle of wills

From the time I was 6 months old, I had a preference for light. As my mother recalls, I would cry in my crib until she flipped on my clown lamp. I was hooked early and spent years sleeping with my overhead light on. Even now as an adult, I use a nightlight to sleep. […]

Parenting Different Stages of Childhood

Parenting different stages

Open, shut them, open, shut them. I can hear her sing-song voice repeating the phrase from the kitchen. I peer around the corner and see the concentration in the folds of her forehead. The little fingers on her right hand are perfectly tucked into the holes of the pink-handled blunt-tipped scissors. A paper plate is […]

Are you striking a balance with the loves of your life?

You cannot take anyone in your life for (1)

I Am A Sports Mom

I am a Sports Mom

I am a sports Mom. I thought I knew what this meant. I was comfortable with my role. Register your child. Drive your child to practices and games. Cheer for your child without jeering the other coaches (even if you want to sometimes). Devote many hours every weekend to your child’s activities. Buy snacks and drinks. Refill […]

Would Your Parenting Pass the Scrutiny of a Video Camera?

“To err is human; to forgive, divine” – Alexander Pope I think people need to remember that parents are human. We are going to make mistakes. We are not always going to make the right choices.  We will be distracted and our children will fall. We will leave a bag of candy within reach and they will eat themselves sick. We […]

My husband went out-of-town this weekend to visit his brother in California. It was actually a surprise birthday present from me. When I purchased the tickets I thought, he is so amazing he deserves some time away. I thought, he loves visiting his brother and it has been two years. I also thought, four nights […]
