Here is my Latest Philly Moms Blog Post
Philadelphia Snowstorm #4- Are You Snover It? Ready for Flowers?
I'm drinking my cup of french vanilla coffee watching the beautiful flakes begin to fall next to my daughter who is busy (for now) coloring in her girly garden fairy coloring book. "No school- yippee," she says as memories of my own childhood race through my mind.
Philadelphia's fourth snowstorm is already hitting us hard this morning, ironically, right before the Philadelphia Flower Show this weekend. While many people are Snover It, complaining and griping about our city's stinky effort this season to remove the snow from the previous few storms, I'm loving it! As much as I love warm weather, flowers and my gardens in the spring and summer, this record dumping snow has been a blessing and given me several days off of work this winter and more time with my kids.
My husband is gearing up his broom arm in an effort to save our trees from what they predict to be wet heavy snow accompanied by some crazy winds later today. The kids are already bugging him to build up and repair the half melted mini Olympic luge course in our slightly sloped back yard (Don't worry- it's truly mini and not nearly as dangerous as the Vancouver course!) And, of course, to bring our "Frosty" the snowman back to life again! It's hard to believe in just a month or so we will be watching the daffodils and tulips pop their heads out of the ground and the hummingbirds come out from hiding.
But for those of you who can't wait for spring to get here (and it's Snow Wonder!)- The Philadelphia Flower Show begins this Sunday- February 28th, 2010 down at the Philadelphia Convention Center. For an entire week, you can walk into a room of flowers and plants that have been fooled by artificial lighting and temperature controls. To those flowers, these winter storms didn't exist!

My Latest Philly Moms Blog Post... What do you all think?
Making My Car A No Phone Zone Is Just NOT For Me.
Cell phone I'm a huge fan of being a safe driver, NOT a distracted driver. I'm also a huge fan of Oprah. But I'm just NOT on board with her recent campaign to make our cars No Phone Zones. I've been in sales for 15+ years and have had a cell phone since as long as I can remember. I've had BIG phones, speaker phones, flip phones and now have a blackberry and an iPhone (yes, I have two phones!) I'm on the phone so much that I generally get a new phone every year. Verizon...LOVES me.
Talking on my phone while driving makes all the travel I do bearable and time efficient. It's lonely and tough being on the road so much, especially when I'm missing my three kids at home and thinking about all of the things that I need to get taken care of for both work and my personal life. And if I pulled over to the side of the road to make calls, I'd be there all day. If I waited until I got home, I'd be ignoring my kids and be a distracted parent. I'm all about time management. My car is my second home and my office. Would you take the phone out of your home or office?
I did think about signing Oprah's no phone pledge. I clicked on her website and when I thought about it, I just could NOT check all of the boxes. There were three boxes. The first, to agree to NOT text while driving. The second, to only use a hands-free device while talking. And the third, to completely agree to NEVER text or talk while driving- making your car a NO Phone Zone. I could only agree to the first.

Today I was in my very cold office trying to get organized and ready for tomorrow...back to work after having 13 days off in a row with my family. I looked up at my bulletin board- a board I put up 2 years ago as my Vision Board. Smack in the middle of the Bulletin Board is a picture my daughter made during her 1st year of pre-school that says, "Life will be Great in 2008!" I looked at the board and thought, "Is it really 2010?" I mean really? My husband and I have been together now 10 years (married 7 1/2) We have 3 healthy kids who mean the world to us- they are my heart. We are truly blessed.
And as I write this post, my little baby is sleeping on my shoulder making her cute squeaky noises (as usual). When I think that she is 5 months old already, my eyes tear up at the thought of how quickly this baby stage flies by. My big girl is 5 already- kindergarten next year. My son will be 4 this May. On New Years day, we put our Baby Bear in the jumper in the door way. She found her legs...jumping, smiling and bouncing all over the place. She's been giggling, interacting...growing up- just as fast (maybe faster) as my older two. I just want to soak up every minute with her, with all 3 of them.
So my #1 New Years Resolution is just that!
To soak up every minute of being with my 3 kids- which to me means a few things:
- Listening- When my kids are telling me a story, I vow to stop what I am doing and listen...really listen and be in the moment with them soaking up their little voices.
- Looking- When I am being presented with the latest painted picture or paper craft, I am going to stop and soak up the colors.
- Hanging up the Phone- I am promising to be with my kids on the way to or from school, talking to them, sharing and soaking up the things in their day- not planning a meeting or small talking with friends. I will also try to limit the phone at home for the few hours I have with them before bedtime.
- Updating that 2008 vision board.
- Fostering my friendships with those friends who make me feel good and with those who I aspire to be more like- not worrying about those friends who seem to never make time for me or make me question me. I heard a motivational speaker at work last month who said, "Surround yourself with your A team!"
- Sticking to a budget...yep- that means Starbucks trips may have to cease for a while.
- Eating less meat- making more vegetarian dishes. Eating more vegetables and fruits-not getting lazy with the kids either- encouraging them to try new foods.
- Yoga- need to find a class to go to again.
- De-cluttering! Getting rid of stuff I don't use and figuring out a system for all the paper.
- Blog more regularly and more authentically (not worrying about what people will think all the time!
- Less TV- not that I really watch that much, but I feel like it's always on in the background.
