In fact, I have now become the mom who is best known for the cakes that I create for my childrens’ birthday parties. I thoroughly enjoy decorating birthday cakes for fun and I am always looking at ideas and products that will help me achieve my desired designs. Enter Buddy Valastro. Buddy, aka the Cake Boss, is well-known for his over the top cakes and pastries. He is someone I have always looked up to […]

In a Minute… Independence

Lucas & Jaylen

While I was pretty sure that Lucas would be our last baby, it makes every first moment very bittersweet.  In an odd twist, Lucas has been the most carefree when it comes to firsts, making those moments one that I wish for and yet long for not to come.  For instance walking finally.  Everyone’s first question these days is, Oooh is he walking yet?  My response would always be a sad, No, not yet as I know he’s just taking a tad bit longer than his older siblings.  The pressure was on for him to take his first steps.  He […]

Glamping it Up! #Tuckerton

Tuckerton

While one of the perks I love about being a blogger is all the amazing experiences I can expose my children to, I am NOT a nature person.  Nature and I have a LOVE/HATE relationship.  I love the beach, and can appreciate a beautiful rainbow or sunset but the very idea of  being one with nature, camping, gives me hives.  I still have nightmares as I recall parts of my youth spent on nature walks and hiking.  The countless hours and days clocked mowing the family lawn were panic inducing.  I’ve convinced myself I’ve got poor body temperature control.  If […]

Rule the Car Buying Process in ONE easy Step #CarWeekNY

IMG_4002

This week is Car Week (Jun 9th-15th), so let’s talk cars.   Let’s just forget that I am a girl. Regardless of the fact, there is nothing more intimidating that the car buying process.  So many times I’ve walked out thinking, OH YEAH!  I got an awesome deal on my car, and then I realize… maybe not so much.  Leaving me with buyer’s remorse. It’s a very confusing numbers game, and most people would rather clean their toilets than negotiate buying a new car.  I’m pretty sure it’s a man’s world, because only in their world is the actual price/value […]

The Time Your Daughter called you a Terrible Mother

(C) SUZANNE M. CHAN 2010

I officially hate 6.  I can’t wait until 7, I hope it gets better.  After an entire day of running errands all things kids, working out details to her birthday party and then shuffling them to tae kwon do, I was deeply hurt when my 6 year old basically called me a terrible mother with a whole lotta attitude to boot.  Picture hand on hips and the all knowing chin raise with the judgemental eyes thrown in. I fully admit to spouting all sorts of profanity and sending her straight to bed, before bawling my eyes out.  I mean seriously, […]
