We are rolling through the second week of school, still acclimating to being back on a schedule, and homework packets and assignments have started showing up in folders. I have a third grader and a second grader in a...
Like I mentioned in my last post, despite the benefits, we still get weary about allowing our kids to cook with us. Especially the young ones. The key, is to understand what skills our kids should have at different...
I work in software, and I’ve travelled all across the world for my job. I’ve been to Budapset, Warsaw, New York, California, Detroit, even Cincinnati … Once I was invited to Buc, France near Versailles to give a training....
It's not that I'm not crafty. I am, or at least I like to think I am. Granted, not all of my projects turn out to be Pinterest-worthy (I'm looking at you, Sesame Street cake pops!) But I enjoy...
I recently laughed while watching a cooking show advertising a "quick" dinner. The woman was making some "easy" roast, and only needed 15 minutes of prep. I thought: "Wow, I need to learn how to do this for a easy...
I will admit that I feed my girls drive-thru easily once a week. Dry cereal in a Mardi Gras cup for breakfast? Check. We are go-go-go. That is likely no surprise for any busy mom. I'm living out the...
Wow!! It's hard to believe that we launched New Orleans Moms Blog FIVE years ago today!! We have published over 2,000 posts written by local moms all across the Greater New Orleans area from the Westbank to Metairie to New...

Call vs. Text: Which Do You Prefer? ::Phone rings:: My phone is ringing! Who is calling me? What do they want? I try to get my kids to quiet down, “Kids, please be quiet for just a second.” I become panicked...
School is out and summer is HERE! Ahh the excitement that the carefree days and nights hold is contagious. The nights are over of packing school lunches and making sure uniforms are clean and laid out. I’m beyond ecstatic...
I never in a million years thought I would find myself dancing in a tutu and fish net stockings in front of hundreds of people in  Mardi Gras parades. I am pretty conservative and very self-conscious, but in 2011...
I was inspired to write this letter following my recent visit to my alma mater to speak about my profession as an Architect. The previous time I had the honor to speak to young ladies on Career Day, I...
I Will Forever Be Young At Heart. If you look up "big kid," I seriously think you would see my face all over the place. I’m a huge Disney lover, I'd rather watch cartoons, and I try to enjoy life...
