Talking All Things Toddlers
Imagine being a senior in high school excited for your senior prom then hearing the words, “You might not be able to have kids.” That was me. Obviously, as an 18-year-old I wasn’t thinking about my future children right then but as previously mentioned, when asked...
Saggy breasts, excess skin and my favorite, the love pouch. Like most women, my body changed after having kids. It wasn’t until I knew I was done having babies that I considered plastic surgery.
Our lives change when we have kids. When did welcoming your little miracle into the world segue into a funeral for your friendships?

Kids in K-12 Grades
We all hate to see it. The play is over, and players in the pile get up, but one player doesn't. Sometimes you see the injury as it happens. Sometimes it is a mystery. Either way, nothing quiets a crowd like a sports injury. It does not matter whether it occurs in...
I have shared that I loathe cooking and baking of any sort with you all before, however, I do value nutrition. I seek out blogs, conversations and articles about healthy cooking, providing healthy snacks and connecting with food. I recently listened to a sports...
The kids are out of school, and we’ve banked up just enough vacation time for this exact moment. After a few years of travel being limited, it’s time for a summer trip! Do you recall that one summer vacation or that one family trip as a child that was etched into your...
Words of Grandparent Wisdom
I’ve blogged about my Pickleball experiences before but I continue to play and it’s on my mind. As a senior, I know my ability to perform any athletic activity is fleeting at best. But I do continue to enjoy this sport, probably the socialization as much as the...
The weekend of June 18 was certainly a fun one for me. It was filled with my involvement in a couple of community activism events. I’ve always worked hard to include my grandkids in my community activities. We marched in the Martin Luther King Youth Rallies for years,...
My husband, John, and I read the paper online every day. It’s not a perfect method as it adds more screen time for each of us and we actually prefer holding a paper in our hands. Print media is fondly remembered, but the online option was a decision we made and we’ve...

Our Health Experts Weigh In…
Over my 19 years of practicing complementary medicine, since earning a master’s degree in Oriental Medicine, the most common question I hear from people is: “Will acupuncture treat my _________?” Fill in the blank. About 90% of the time the answer is YES! Acupuncture...

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar? It’s Sunday afternoon and while sitting in my recliner watching television, I end up taking a nap over two hours. Why am I not able to fall asleep at my normal bedtime hour? I had to work late and ended up eating later than...

Babies & Toddlers
Hello! I am born and raised in Lincoln, and I never plan to leave. As a small child I knew I wanted to be a mom. My mom is my best friend, and I wanted that bond with my children. I went to college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated with a degree in Journalism, but my one passion was motherhood. My husband and I have been married for over 11 years now and we have two children. Cohen, my son, is 10 years old and Collyns, my daughter, is 7 years old. We recently got a dog, Maya, who is now the baby of the family. In addition to the time I devote to being a mom, I also work full-time at a local television station. It’s a balancing act, but being a mom is one full-time job I never want to quit.
K-12 & Teens
My husband and I have three kids. Our oldest is a sophomore in college, our middle daughter is a sophomore in high school and our youngest is a seventh grader. Like most families, our calendar is color-coded with professional meetings and family and kid activities. In my free time, I like to read, write, exercise and travel.
Grandkids & Grandparents
Where can I even begin to explain the magic that consumed me when I found out I was going to be a grandparent? It didn’t take long, and I was a grandmother of four wonderful kids. With the birth of each one, I was in awe of my emotions and my love for these bundles of joy.
