Hope Springs

Hope Springs stars Meryl Streep (Love her!), Tommy Lee Jones (love him!) and Steve Carrell. It’s a must see for all the married couples who have lost that connection. While raising kids, sometimes the connection gets lost and that’s not fiction. So many couples I know (and I was one) are just like the characters, Kay and Arnold – some not even married 30 years. Make it a part of your to do list. And let me know what you think.

Potty Training A Boy…Ugh!

This has been the most trying time of parenting.  My son is so intelligent and comprehension level through the roof! But to go to the bathroom…No, mommy! I had to sit with myself, let go of my ego and expectation of him to let it happen in his time. We are better than before but still not there. However, no longer do I or his father stress about it; just our saying…he’ll get there.

Apparently I’m not alone, as other boy mother’s say the same…

Advice is always welcome!!!

Meditation – What A Stress Reliever!

I tried this during my pregnancy, after 10 years of the practice and just could not do it for long on my own. But as I spent the this past Thu. in guided meditation, it became clear that it would have been better served if I had done it with a teacher. Why? There was a women who sat next to me who said all her fears, especially self-doubt, had come up more. She began to cry…as I offered one piece of advice to her – Let Go! It made me realize how much this would have been helpful to me and can be for others.Image

Hello world!

It hit me one day, while watching “The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet” on Lifetime, that the new culture is 40. Not only having a baby at the age of 40, the transition that comes with entering this age is more than a notion. With re-entering the world of journaling, I shared with my over 40 friends my thoughts and feelings, and the journey was the same – men, business, children and sex. So why not blog about it…
