Time to Be Resourceful

When I created this website I chose the name Resourceful Mommy because I fully intended the content to be useful, clever, helpful – maybe even a little enjoyable. But lately I’ve been so overwhelmed with keeping track of my own “to-do” list that I’ve been of no help to anyone else. Today that is going […]

Help a Resourceful Mommy Out!

I recently received an e-mail from my children’s pre-school – no, they’re not in trouble…yet – asking for the school family to rally around one of our own. Through the power of blogging and social media, I’d like to see if we can all help this family in need. My family is lucky enough to […]

Just for Fun: From Winnie to Weinie – Familiar Voices of Cartoon Characters

Women and Choice: Part 2-The Myth of Our Mothers – "Having It All" – G’s Story Begins

In the quiet, early morning hours of July 16, 1975, Gerald Ford was meeting with his cabinet regarding troubles in the Soviet Union, the Stones were resting up for the concert they would play that night in San Francisco, and a 26 year old woman, in labor with her first child, was quietly walking the […]
