What are YOUR thoughts on school testing?

Here is my 2 cents on testing, GPA, education and sucking the marrow out of life: http://bit.ly/1Ho15Yg.

#education   #standardizedtesting   #optout  
There has been a thought keeping me up at night. A gnawing feeling, set deep, tickling the recesses of my brain. This thought bubbles up at random times throughout the day, stopping me in my tracks, filling me with a sinking dread. I try to push the thought to the back of my mind, ...

We've made this several times already - and I tried it with Broccoli and Cheddar filling last night. 

SO yummy and easy:

#Recipe  
I've got an easy dinner recipe for you! The other day I was planning meals for the week, and I mentioned to Hubby that I was thinking of doing my usual Grilled Pizza. He was up for it but seemed underwhelmed. So I took that as a challenge to think out of the box with the ingredients I had on ...

What messages are we giving our kids without realizing it?

Here is one thing I'll never let my daughters hear me say: http://bit.ly/1ukf0Le.

#Parenting   #moms   #MomOfGirls   #Daughters  
There are so many messages thrown at us each day. Buy this! Avoid that! This is sexy! This is beauty! This is healthy! This is harmful! From the commercials we watch, the ads we drive past, the magazines we read. If we sit back and really take it in, we realize we are truly bombarded.

It's Winter. Those 3 months that make up my least favorite time of the year. One of the hardest things to about the winter is being trapped indoors because of the cold. No playing outside in the yard or swinging on swings when it's 15 degrees outside. For kids, all of this "stuck in the house" ...

Don't believe the lies.

Sure, you can play Oregon Trail for free.

But Oregon Trail WILL PWN YOU.

#oregontrail  
I had a dream. That one day, I would take my covered wagon across the American frontier. In a covered wagon with modest provisions, I would brave the wild unknown and conquer the trail blazed by many settlers before me. I hoped against hope that amidst snake bites, river fordings, poor hunting ...

In response to the Gwyneth Paltrow/SNAP discussion from earlier, I wanted to share my thoughts on the topic.

In short: It's complicated.

#SNAP  
Our controversial celebrity friend, Gwynth Paltrow, is feeling the heat again. This time, it is because she took on Mario Batali's Food Bank challenge, where she lived off of $31/week to help bring awareness to the struggle (and limitations) of those using SNAP. Let me back up and explain SNAP.

I just don't get it.

The #fiftyshadesofgrey   hype.

But if you are into it - please share your thoughts.
I don't get it. The whole Fifty Shades of Grey hype. I just don't get it. Let me start at the beginning. I remember back to when the books first came out. Right on the tails of the Twilight series, I was intrigued by yet another love saga. (I am easily suckered into a good love story, ...

What are your favorite meals to bring new moms when they arrive home from the hospital?

If you love to prep a meal for new parents as they transition to parenthood, here are 10 recipes that are perfect to bring them!

#freezermeals   #recipeideas   #parenthood  
In the past 3 months, I've been amidst a great baby boom. Not my own, of course (heaven help me!). But, rather, many of my friends have made the great transition to being parents. I love getting to visit these new first-time parents, snuggling new little babies (that I can give back when I am ...

Does anyone else struggle with the months of January through March?
When January begins, my anxiety sets in.
For as long as I can remember, January through March has been my least favorite time of year. As a kid, it was the bleak season of going back to school after the hype of holidays and standing in the frigid temperatures each morning at the bus stop. I guess I have various idiosynchrasies for ...

Awesome stocking stuffer ideas from CVS (hint - they're all #GoldEmblem products).

 #HolidayEntertaining
As we finish up our holiday shopping, it's easy to forget the finishing touches. Whether it's ingredients for Christmas Day brunch, wrapping paper for gifts or even a last minute present or two. We find ourselves frantically braving the mall on Christmas Eve, battling lines, and clawing out eyes ...

Story
Tagline
A pee a little every time I laugh or sneeze. I also have a dangerous relationship with ice cream.
Introduction

One day when Steph leaves this world, she will be known for many things: Imperfect mother. English teacher's wife. Baking a wicked apple crisp. Shopping yet remaining unfashionable. Struggling to discern the line between reality and fantasy on TV shows. Passionately eating ice cream. Peeing a little every time she sneezes or laughs. Deep thoughts. Laughable housekeeping. Secretly crushing on MacGyver. And being a world-class blogger. Join her as she adventures through blogging, life, marriage, cooking, parenting and bringing sexy back, but not necessarily in that order. You can find her at Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom.

Stephanie loves community.  When she started blogging over 3 years ago, it was Steph's intent to reach out to any and every mother of the world, so they would know they were not alone on this journey called Motherhood. Since then, she has successfully (and somewhat humorously) redefined The Modern Day Donna Reed. Her blog has gained a faithful readership who explores parenthood, cooking, learning, growing, watching great TV shows and unabashedly loving the 90's.  The Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom blog has a lively and growing Facebook Page where there is a constant chatter.

Steph is passionate about things she loves, and is influential when sharing about something she believes in. She is the social media director/blogger for her local farmer's market, West Chester Growers Market, and is a regular contributor to thePhilly Burb Moms sites and MetroKids magazine, as well as the Philadelphia City Manager for SavvySource..  Steph is also an active member of Philly Social Media Moms.

I am the mother of 2 beautiful girls, the wife of a dashingly handsome english teacher, and I blog. I also may have showered today.
