What’s For Dinner: Chicken Chili

I usually leave the chili-making to my wife, she has it down pat. The other day, though, I was at the butcher getting some fresh chicken when I spotted a chorizo and inspiration hit. I had the butcher grind the chicken and headed home to throw some ingredients together to make my own chili- this is what I came up with. Oh, and trust me with the cinnamon. It makes the dish! Ingredients: Ground chicken (3 ground chicken breasts at the...

The Celebrity in Me

I do it too. We were talking about tabloids and celebrities in the office and it seems that I get a kick out of the “Celebrities do it too” pieces. I mean of course they do “it” too. They are people too (gasp!) and they have stuff that needs doing. So I thought it would be fun to be narcissistic honest about the things that I do… sometimes beyond my better judgement. I take my kids to the park… okay that’s a lie. I don’t...

Help for Preemie Parents

Let me first start this blog by saying that the NICU staff at both hospitals the girls spent time in are incredible at what they do. They made sure our girls were taken care of and received the best care possible and for that I will be forever grateful. The hospital that the girls were born in and called home for four days had amazing resources and support workers. Maybe it's because they specialize in preemies and know just how much help...

The Awful Loud Truth

My voice can get pretty loud sometimes, I am naturally a loud talker and I come from a family of loud talkers. Confession time: I sometimes yell at my kids and I hate it. My son is super sensitive to this and he has asked me why I sometimes yell. I’m not going to lie, when he asks me this, it breaks my heart a little bit. While I’d love to say that I never raise my voice at my children, it’s not true. I do sometimes. Way more than I’d...

Love Is…

You've probably experienced love in your life. Or at least I hope that you have. I feel lucky to be able to say that I've experienced it in many forms; from my parents and family members, from friends who I consider family, from my pup and of course from my husband. It wasn't until I had kids that I realized there's a whole different world of love that I didn't know existed: The kind of love that has you doing things that you never thought...

R.I.E. Parenting? I Prefer M.O.M. or D.A.D.

Another day, another parenting theory. You know when you hear the words “Currently taking Hollywood parents by storm” that it’s going to be a good one. And by good I mean one that might involve chewing your child’s food first for them or something like that. This one? It’s based on the book “Baby Knows Best”, a new parenting style, where the babies are not treated like babies, but like adults. R.I.E., or Resources for Infant...
