The “Entitlement Generation”

April 29, 2015

“If your parents had to use a wooden spoon on you, then they clearly didn’t know how to parent you.” Yep. I got that email last night after I posted my blog.  I honestly had to laugh. Here was a stranger criticizing my parents. I tend to think they did a pretty good job. They […]

We are PARENTS – not FRIENDS

July 4, 1993. (You’re now doing the math to figure out how old I am, aren’t you? lol) I was 16 years old and was out with my friends for the fireworks.  It was the only night that I was allowed to stay out past my 10pm curfew. “Be home by midnight. Not a second […]

Saying goodbye…

“You command attention.  That is one of your greatest strengths. Whether it’s when you walk into a room or when the ON-AIR light goes on in the studio, you just captivate people. Promise me – you will keep giving ’em hell.” It’s part of a goodbye speech that was written about me when I left […]

Britt McHenry. Before today, most people knew her as a pretty young reporter with potential for ESPN. Now – people may know her for something much different. She’s being referred to as a narcissist…spoiled…arrogant…and many other words I’d get flagged for if I shared on this blog.  Long story short – McHenry’s car got towed…she […]

And it all surrounds stuff that is BEYOND SUPERFICIAL. Let’s talk about my red lipstick that I like to wear from time […]

“Mommy, I don’t want to go to school today.” I knew full well that my daughter wasn’t sick this morning when she said that. “What’s going on, G? Why don’t you want to go to school?” “Remember that girl I told you about a couple of weeks ago? Well, now she’s starting to be really […]

Am I the only mom who hates those party favors??

Growing up, birthday parties were simple. There was Chuck E. Cheese. Then you had the good ole’ roller skating party. And you can’t forget about the old school McDonald’s party. Having a party at Mickey D’s was HUGE on the east coast in the early 80s. A Happy Meal with an orange drink AND a […]

To the mean girl back in high school…

A story really grabbed my attention earlier today.  It featured women who were responding to their childhood bullies. They did so simply…by just holding a sign. Their bullies verbally attacked them YEARS ago…many happening DECADES ago. More proof that words can be used as weapons and they can leave lasting injuries. I read through some […]
