I never realized that my boys were listening to me every time I used the 'F' word.  My post about the day I stopped using it is up on +The Huffington Post  today.
I have often thought to myself that if I ever have a daughter, I would really have to watch how much I complain about my body. The last thing I would want is for her to grow up with a warped body image. I never once thought about what it could be doi...

I'm sharing my personal story about loss and celebrating motherhood over on +HuffPost Parents today. 
I felt fear that we might never experience the chaos of everyday life with children, that our house might never be filled with laughter other than our own. I cried thinking I may never trip over a toy on my way to bed or have a teddy bear to pick up ...

I am over on +HuffPost Parents  with 30 things I wish I had known about motherhood. It really is a learning journey that never ends. 
Motherhood comes with pressure. It comes with pressure from the people around us, but most of the pressure we feel comes from ourselves....

Great post by +Julie Maida of +Next Life No Kids parenting is a tough gig and even though it's filled with many different stages I have to agree and say it doesn't ever get easier. 
I have three children. My youngest is in diapers and my oldest in college, so I feel pretty qualified to speak about the fact that parenting, no matter how brilliant you think you are, is hard. If I've trusted someone and sai...

I am a mom. I was once a little girl who grew into an awkward teenager and eventually into a confident woman. I am now a mom of two young boys. If I do nothing else right in this life I promise you this....

A beautiful story about adoption filled with strength and love. +Jeannette B +HuffPost Parents 
In July 2002, I woke up doubled over in pain. I couldn't eat, I couldn't drink, and I could barely breathe. I went to my doctor and she immediately did an ultrasound on my kidneys and liver. She was certain I had a kidney infection. Four days later, ...

Story
Tagline
Stay at home mom to two energy filled, crazy, lovable boys. Traded in my salary to raise my children. They outsmart me daily. In my defense it's probably the lack of sleep.
Introduction
Before having children Jennifer thought being a stay at home mom would be a walk in the park. Now that she's doing it she realizes it's more like a run in a zoo (without cages for the animals). She traded in her salary for sloppy kisses, corporate lunches for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and sales meetings for finger painting sessions. Her two boys outsmart her on a daily basis although in her defense it could be the lack of sleep. She writes to stay sane on her blog Outsmarted Mommy and has been featured on Mamapedia, Scary Mommy and iVillage Australia. She is also a contributor for Felicity Huffman’s What The Flicka?  Her children are not the least bit impressed they just want to know what's for dinner.  You can follow their journey at Outsmarted Mommy, on Twitter as @outsmartedmommy or on Facebook.
