Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom: Moving On to a New Stage

By Maureen Wilson My mama always said that life is just a bunch of stages, and whichever one you’re in always feels like it’s never going to end…until you’re long past it and suddenly realize it’s over, and then there’s nothing left but the pining. As with most things my mama says, I’ve discovered this […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom: Overachieving is Overrated…At Least in the Summer!

I’m writing this two weeks before school starts, and I am FREAKING. OUT. Not because the kids don’t have adequate clothes or supplies or I’m worried about the schools they’ll be attending– but because it’s late August and we have done NOTHING. Well, we’ve actually done EVERYTHING we wanted to, and nothing we probably should […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom: But Who Will Take Care of ME??

Recently I experienced one of those rare summer flu bugs that feels so misplaced in the glorious fun and sun of the season you’d swear you were in an alternate universe…or a dark comedy. It hit me unexpectedly, when I was home alone with the 5 yr-old, and it occurred to me after the virus […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom: Sports and How We View Them

We recently had our initiation into children’s competitive sports when our 9 yr-old tried out for a classic soccer team. Although most parents vehemently protest against the current system of youth sports that encourages (requires?) year-round play by late elementary school, we also all continue jumping through the hoops for fear of our children losing […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom: ROFL! My Life as an Acronym

My life is slowly becoming an acronym. Not in a hip, cutting edge way, where I’m two steps ahead of the texting lingo of today’s youth (“ILYSM!!” “No, you’re MY WCW!!” Emoji, emoji, emoji), but mostly from a condition a friend’s husband coined—and very accurately, I might add—OCI, or “Over-Commit-Itis”… where the most-used acronyms are […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom: The Fear of Asking Daddy = Askdaddyphobia

‘Ask·dad·dy·pho·bia’ (noun): The act wherein a child avoids asking father for help, despite the fact he is sitting two feet away, and will instead search every nook and cranny until mother is located, usually in a place of privacy, and pestered for desired answer. I experienced some Askdaddyphobia today when I had the audacity to […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom

Cruisin’ through parenting I really wish there was more to worry about in this whole parenting gig, don’t you? I mean, sometimes I just feel like everything is a little TOO easy, like we’re just cruising through, making all these flawless decisions, avoiding harmful viruses and accidents without a care, never raising our voices or […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom: 2013 – My Best and Worst Mommy Moments

By Maureen Wilson A year of Christmas letter reflection really doesn’t say it all; although we love hearing about the accolades of everyone’s children and all the vacations that were taken, a true recap could be caught in the daily quotes of our kiddos. Looking back, I found a few funny moments and a few […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom: Adventures in Family Travels

By Maureen Wilson November has become our month of family travel, and every year I think I’m a little closer to opening that novel and sipping a quiet cup of coffee on the plane… and then every year I draw the card to sit next to whomever is the baby at the moment, and the […]

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom:  Now that’s Embarrassing!

It appears that my current purpose in life is to embarrass my 6th grader. Initially I could pinpoint my transgressions to some of my more outrageous behaviors, such as humming along to the music playing in the grocery store, waving at someone I THOUGHT I knew but actually DIDN’T, or having the audacity to ASK […]
