« Family is What You Make of It | Main | A Short, Quick, Funny Story about Perspective »



Carmen this was a wonderful and touching post. I have followed your blog for years and have always appreciated your posts- vulnerable, intelligent, inquisitive and YOU LOVE YOUR FAMILY...and they LOVE YOU. Enjoy the moments. This was a reminder that I need to slow down and savor!


I just found your blog today. IF your kids want to spend time with you, you sure did something right!! My two are long out of the house, and I know if they called, I'd be at the grocery store with wet hair too!! Enjoy, savor and relish those moments!!

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
