• 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.

  • Surviving Life's Derails

    Many women are lucky enough to find a profession they are passionate about, and they decide to return to that work immediately after having a child. Continuing to work through morning sickness, fatigue, and time off for doctor’s appointments is just a tutorial for learning the act of balancing work and motherhood before baby’s arrival really takes over. Some women find themselves dealing with issues they never considered experiencing while pregnant or as new mothers. These are issues that can knock a woman right off that balance.Enter Mary Kreis. I have known Mary for more than ten years and consider her one of my closest friends. She’s also a living Wonder Woman. I met Mary in 2002 while I was sidelined from sports due to pregnancy, and was serving as one of the women’s coaches on the US Military Pentathlon team.
