*Dr Mama* – Initiations Into The Sandwich Generation, MamaBlogger365

This is my first of what is likely to be many posts about being a member of the “sandwich generation.” I’m writing about it today because it is all I can think about; the issue became suddenly salient for me as my mother, who has historically struggled with high blood pressure was hospitalized for a … Continue reading

MamaBlogger365 – I Was Fine ‘Til I Started To Sweat, By Joy Rose

Since the kidney transplant that saved my life in 2000, I’ve been on fire to do whatever I can, in whatever time I have left, to empower and celebrate women. This of course is all based on my own dis-empowering experiences as a child and then as a married mother of four. Joy Rose, MediaMom™ writes the first day of every month for MamaBlogger365, raising awareness for the Museum Of Motherhood, through Mamazina Magazine and JoinMama sites. Join her each Wed. at 7pm (EST) on MingleMediaTV for music, commentary & mom culture.

MamaBlogger365 – Two Roads Diverged, By Diva Mama Shira Adler

By walking unknown territory and choosing a path that leads where it may, we are available to delightful surprises no matter how they show up. Had I stuck to my plan and not been open to spontaneity, we wouldn’t have had such a glorious morning. Shira Adler, Diva Mama writes to raise awareness for the Museum Of Motherhood.

*Dr. Mama*, ‘On Letting Children Be’ – MamaBlogger365

So in some ways I have tried to live up to my youthful vow about what kind of parent I’d be. But the truth of the matter is that I have, many many times, been quite dissatisfied with where my children were at various points, and even now, there are points at which I regret the choices they make. I have found myself, and do find myself, wishing they could be more this or less that; I do find that my identity is quite wrapped in them and their choices. Dr. Amber Kinser writes for the MamaBlogger365 series each Thursday at the Museum Of Motherhood.

*Dr Mama* by Amber Kinser for MamaBlogger365 – Love Rollercoaster

When I think of parenting my kids I always hear the song “Love Rollercoaster” in the background (done first by the Ohio Players in the seventies and then more recently by Red Hot Chili Peppers). It has my mothering theme song for years. The ride is unpredictable and suddenly shifting, high highs and low lows in a very short timespan. I can neither predict nor control where we will be next. Fighting and ill-will one day, crawling up in my bed to lay a head on my shoulder the next, aloof and apathetic the day after that (“rollercoaster…of love…rollercoaster…ooh hoo hoo hoo). Dr. Amber Kinser writes as ‘Dr. Mama’ each week for the Motherhood Museum.
