A Quick Rant: Rewarding vs Bribing Children

by RealMomofNJ on January 31, 2013 in Life Lessons, Parenting Techniques

Last time I was at the grocery store, I witnessed a mother trying to persuade her son to get off the floor and walk so she could finish shopping. She was trying to reason with him, and I heard her offer him candy, French fries, and hours of TV to get him to get him moving. As soon as…

Hack Crafts for Ghetto Crafters

While I might be an ace at cooking wholesome meals and saving the planet with the kids, I am a GD zero at crafting. I’m a ghetto, wannabe crafter. Even before there was Pinterest to make my desire 10,000 times worse, I was desperate to be crafty in any way possible. Sewing, knitting, DIY furniture restoration, decoupage, whatever. But…

I’m Running Away

by RealMomofNJ on January 25, 2013 in Mom Stuff

All moms have moments when they feel like running away from their families. Generally after times of great difficulty or sleep deprivation, we fantasize about hitting the open road and heading for a life less complicated. A life devoted to beach sitting, sun tanning, mojito drinking, and cabana boy schtupping. Perhaps we envision our mates and kids at home,…

Lice? Whatever. My Son Had Scabies.

By guest blogger Meg

Whenever I hear about a lice outbreak, I can’t help but shake my head a little as other parents freak out. Lice? Whatever. My son had scabies, and I promise you it was way more disgusting than lice.

When he was 2 or 3, my boy developed a rash on his upper body that itched and…

Give Me Some Credit, Mom!

by RealMomofNJ on January 22, 2013 in Mom Stuff

One of my biggest parent pet peeves is when people claim their child hit a milestone that is impossible for them to have hit. Like claiming your 3-week-old calls you mama, or your 1-day old smiles at you. Or your 8-month old is potty trained and unloads the dishwasher. This drives me INSANE. Come on, people, do you research….
