I've been in a whirlwind of things lately. The crazy train has made friends with the constant re-runs of 'Thomas the Tank Engine' on PBS and I don't know when it will ever slow down around here!
A short time after my first blog, I did a radio interview for WOR710 in NYC that will air mid-Sept to hype the book. I am so excited to hear how the editing will go on that show! It was extremely nerve-wracking, but after that short 13 minute telephone call, I was hooked. I told my…Continue

I am so happy to find this local site where a new mom like me can surround herself with other local moms - I can't wait to hear from you all!
More than becoming a new mom recently has been the excitement of becoming a newly published author as well. My debut novel, "The Early Bird Cafe" went live on July 1st, from Page Publishing in New York City. It is a journey that started when I was very young and it's an experience I hope to share with you all as time goes on. I never really…Continue

I opened the refrigerator and stared. I opened the cupboards and stared. I write about food for a living. What in heaven's name was I staring at?
Breakfast. Or rather the lack of it.
I know breakfast is important for kids and grownups. But especially for kids going back to school. They can't graze the refrigerator and cupboards any more. At work and at home, grownup have their stashes, well, stashed, in desk drawers, purses, etc., for when the hungries hit. In the worst case,…Continue

Back-to-school has been much anticipated in our home. Starting middle school is a big deal, at least for girls. The whole social dynamic changes - they seem to change over the summer from little girls to preteens (complete with the complexes). Picking out the right thing to wear the first day consumed no fewer than 2 hours. And involved the right to change the whole thing the next morning.
It's at these times when I think boys must be so much easier - jeans, T-shirt, clean shorts,…Continue

For my daughter's 10th birthday, we invited local hula-hooper Anna Haller to give a demonstration and lesson to the girls.
I was met with a lot of, "Oh, I know how to do that."
But they didn't know how to do a lot of that. Haller showed them how to walk through the hoop, hoop with hands, hoop with feet and all kinds of other hoopla.
Each girl went home with a hoop.
Note to moms - hula hooping burns about 480 calories and hour and is great for abs. You can…

My daughter is a lot like me at her age - wondering why on Earth she has a parent who insists on driving to North East (heaven forbid) to pick berries. A 5-minute trip to Wegmans would accomplish the same, in her mind.
But not in mine. I spare her the blackberry picking story and the bear warning (she's heard it so many times, she'll tell it herself). But it doesn't stop me from going to area farms. Sure beats the back woods of Warren County.
We came home with 6 quarts of…Continue

As the school year dawns, my daughter's birthday approaches. She's an end of August child, making her the youngest in her class. But, unlike my own birthday at the start of summer, she gets to celebrate her birthday outside most of the time.
It's a wonderful time of year for a party, and we've planned pirate parties, craft parties, zoo parties, pool parties, petting farm parties. I enjoy the planning probably more than she does the event. However, as she gets older, she wants less of…Continue

Why stay inside for a story on a beautiful Erie summer day? Head on over to Whitford Park (corner of Iroquois and Boyer) for stories, fingerplays, and a simple craft for the little ones.

We'll be meeting every Monday morning at 10:30AM all summer long.
Wondering what stories we'll be covering? Check out the schedule here: …
