  • The Incident

    Hands up MorphMoms, who loves Yoga?  I bet it's a safe assumption that a good number of you raised your hands (well, hopefully you didn't literally raise them, because...you know I can't really see you, right?).  Welp, I love yoga too. But today was the first day in 2+ years that I took a class.  It's been 2+ years since "The Incident"...aka "The Day The Yoga Died" (for me at least).  I had signed a year membership with the "It" yoga studio at the time, of Highlands Ranch the previous day.  I walked in that evening ready to begin my new life as a Zen, calm, "take it in stride" woman.  I was going to come back to my family, changed...shining from within...

  • Mom's First Children's Book

    Chapter 1: Ruthie awoke one morning to a mysterious noise. She turned to her left and she turned to her right but she could not locate the source. She looked under her bed and up to the ceiling and still could not figure it out. Ruthie finally climbed out of her bed - still wiping the sleep from her big brown eyes – and found her slippers and her glasses.  Then, she started to investigate.But no sooner had she started than Ruthie, still just a little too sleepy, tripped over something fluffy on the floor.  In fact, it was Fluffy, her most favorite stuffed animal, who had recently disappeared. Elated at Fluffy's return, she completely forgot about the mysterious sound that had brought her out of bed in the first place and began playing old familiar Fluffy games.

  • My Hero

    In 1943 my grandfather, a radio operator of a B17 , was shot down during a mission over Germany.  The plane exploded but all members of the crew managed to escape.  My grandfather landed in a tree,was injured, but managed to escape at night and attempted to swim to the safety of France.  As he emerged form the murky waters, he was greeted by none other than a Hitler youth who held a gun to his face and smiled as he said…"FOR YOU...the war is over!" My grandfather was taken prisoner and brought to the war camp, famously known as Stalag 17, where he would spend the next two and a half years of his life.Back in the states, in Fair Lawn New Jersey, Jeanne Fleming, a few months pregnant at the time, waited patiently for her husbands safe return home.  Unfortunately, the news she received was as far from that as she could have ever imagined.

  • Thanks Morphmom

    Kathleen-Thanks so much for starting this website. It’s come at a perfect time in my life. I've been doing the hardest job for which I've ever been "hired" for 3 years now- being a stay at home mom. After my previous two jobs, that of a Marine Officer and then founder of a non-profit, I thought this "time off" would be fun, easy and relaxing. I realized it’s the first job I've been in that is NOT a meritocracy. It can be relentless and exhausting, and I sometimes feel very underappreciated, but it is also the most rewarding thing I've ever done. That said, my little pretties are growing up and ready to get into a structured environment. Easy, now all I have to do is find a job. Wow, didn't realize that would be so difficult this time around. I find myself driving kids from one place to another, dreaming about that perfect job.
     Thanks Morphmom

  • All in a day's work

    Well HELLO again to all you perfectly perfect, impeccably dressed, fresh from the salon haired, professionally done make-upped Mommies that I always seem to run into at the supermarket when I'm looking my worst!  It's me, Sue! You know, the wrath of god look alike with the sweats and baseball cap? So yeah...about today. I'm well aware that you noticed me (and not because I was selected to receive a Regis and Kathy Lee Make Over). I've finally made peace with the fact that I'm (cringe, wince) NOT 35 anymore...ok, nor do I fit into the age group of 36-44. At 45, I've learned to embrace my 1.75 drugstore cheater specs. I marvel at the super absorbancy of my wafer-thin pads which allow me 60+ minutes of "dry" Tae Bo.

  • Welcome to MorphMom!

    At first glance, I am a 43 year-old stay-at-home mom. In truth, if not in reality, I am an attorney, an author, an actress, a singer. How to make what's true real?I wake up every morning with grand plans. I need to get started immediately! I may end up on on Good Morning America. I need to do this immediately. Got to fire off some emails, make some phone calls. Schedule meetings. What will I wear?And then as if a sudden storm has knocked out the electricity, I realize that it's 6:45 AM and my son will miss the train if we don't leave in 5 minutes. And he is still asleep. What will I wear? Looks like my pajama pants. Again.But, if I'm honest, is it really the demands of motherly responsibility that cause me constantly to put my grand designs on hold? Or is it the complete and utter lack of confidence and direction that a decade of tending to those demands has produced.

  • Stand Up for Yourself!

    I've been recruited as a blogger for reasons unbeknownst to me, by my sister in law, who has just launched MorphMom.com.  She wants me to start to collect all of my writings and post them...but here's the deal...I've been using facebook as my forum to bitch, moan, giggle, flat out GAFAW, gossip, weep, sob, fume, vent, accuse, deny, call out, embarass, educate, validate, idolize, fantasize, gratify, mortify, sanctify and even crucify my "Issue De Jour" and believe me my pets, there is an issue for every "jour on my infinite and on-going list of "Things That Aren't My Bag", Punctuality continuously hovers at the top. That being cited, I received a call this afternoon,from Owen's 1st grade teacher (no, not protecting her real identity), Mrs. Jones.
