To honor the lovely moms that are in our lives, or those we often come in contact with, here is a fun and entertaining list of different types of moms. Let’s have fun with this piece! So what type of mom are you?
1. Helicopter mom
The mom who is constantly checking on her child’s academic and other experiences.
Family life for us is very busy. Every now and then we need an app or two or even a website to come to our rescue. Here are the top 10 apps and websites that our family loves.

Ladies, we know how difficult it is to find the right eligible bachelor to settle down with. Maybe you are looking in the wrong places; you may be dating the wrong type of men; or he is not that into you, but is stringing you along on this roller coaster ride. We all have dated the guys we are not going to marry, but to keep the boyfriend/girlfriend status we continue to be in those relationships. Continue reading
If you are like me, a busy mom with three young kids and a husband that functions with limited kitchen skills, then every now and then you deserve a vacation from your kitchen, and that’s where a meal at a kid friendly restaurant comes right in.
Most children like eating out especially at kid friendly restaurants, as they often create a welcoming atmosphere (not the type where people frown at the idea of your kids disrupting their perfect meal), they have kid’s menus, and of course expectation of a messy table. Kids also enjoy the experience. Continue reading
For most kids (and some adults), there is no day more special than their birthday! They might not understand what it means to be a year older, nor visualize all the responsibilities that adulthood brings, but they definitely know they will get cake, presents, and tons of special attention on this day! Personally, I think birthday parties are a way of showing my love to my children, and hoping they understand that this day, I am celebrating their uniqueness, and my joy at having them in my life. Every year, I start thinking well in advance of my eldest son and daughter’s birthdays to try to come up with a new and fun way to style their birthday bashes. (I start birthday parties at 3 years, so my 2 year old will have one next year). Continue reading
Planning a family vacation is always challenging, but planning a family vacation for 5 for a non-conventional Las Vegas family vacation is really ambitious. My husband was brave enough to suggest the idea, and I was nutty enough to evangelize that I can make it work. Off course I can, I am the queen of travel concierge and a resourceful mom.

As parents, the one thing we can all probably agree on is how difficult it is to find healthy, productive, yet fun, pastimes for our children, especially in that phase where they are no longer toddlers but also not adults yet. While it’s hard getting them to pay attention if they feel our approach is too pedantic, we may risk losing them along the way! It’s a very confusing situation to be in for us parents, until we find that elusive project that will involve our child, while also teaching them learned skills that will be valuable to them in the near future. For me and my kids, that turned out to be coding.
What is coding?
The coding I’m talking about is the process of using computer ‘languages’ to write ‘codes’, which are the building blocks of pretty much everything software based – apps, operating systems, websites, and games, etc. To be able to write this code, one needs to learn these ‘languages’ and then understand how it is pieced together, much the same way we would learn grammar and sentence structure when learning a new spoken language. With everything today moving to computer (or mobile) forums, with Continue reading
Most of the news you can find on different information mediums are abjectly depressing nowadays, and some of the worst, and most hopeless, is the perpetual damage that human kind is causing to the earth and our environment. ‘Green’ has become a buzzword, right up there with ‘social entrepreneurship’, with a lot of companies, organizations and individuals talking about what ‘going green’ means to them, and why it’s important. Recently, at a climate change conversation at Stanford University, moderated by Lesley Stahl and attended by industry bigwigs such as JB Straubel, CTO of Tesla, and George P. Shultz, former States Secretary, I realized that, as a Continue reading
