Does your husband help too much?

“Help Has No Fury… A new study says the more Dad pitches in with the kids, the more annoyed Mom gets.”

This is what I read while skimming through May’s issue of Parenting. No way… I have never heard any of my girl friends vent that her husband is helping too much with the kids. Parenting must have it wrong, I had to keep reading.

“…a recent study published in Developmental Psychology observed the co-parenting practices of 112 couples over the course of a year. The… Continue

Last week we travelled down to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  And when I say the "outer" banks, I mean it... really far away outer banks... down to Cape Hatteras type of outer banks.


It was our first time to NC.  Last summer, we drove almost 500…

Making You and Your Health a Priority

Each morning you wake, usually in response to the cries of a child or to the buzzing of an alarm. As you bound out of bed, you anticipate the day that lies ahead of you. If you are like many moms, most, if not all, of your day will be spent tending to the needs of others.

As my introductory post on Meridian Momtourage, I really wanted this post to be inspiring, but at the core, I have to be honest: I just make too many excuses.

Allow Me To Introduce Myself

Writing a new blog is like a first date:  you give facts and figures designed to entice one to learn more.  So here goes.


I am a 50 year old married stay-at-home mother of two.  In my past lives (meaning the era before kids) I was a Secretary, Marketing Assistant, Marketing Manager, Newsletter Editor, and now a Writer/Reporter.  My college degree is in Psychology but upon graduation, I realized I just didn't have the patience to listen to the problems of others.  Now, as a…
