Family Tree
Married for nearly nine years, and mom to two daughters, 7½ and 1½, and a cat. Moved to Charlotte three years ago from Pennsylvania.

Get Real
I’m a “piler” and a bit of a packrat, but I have one of those organized-clutter systems going on. It’s when I file my piles that I can’t find what I’m looking for.

“Don’t You Dare”
At-ti-tude! My husband and I can’t stand attitude. Thankfully, only our youngest daughter pushes that button with any regularity.

Parenting Rule #1
If you’re capable — you do it!

Fave Phrase
“In a minute…” Of course, this really means, “If I remember, once I’m done with what I’m doing.”

Top Tip
Do what works for your family — forget what others say or think. If it works for you, that’s all that matters. (However, if it’s not working, fix it.)
