About Margo

As one of the expert Baby Bunchers of the group, Margo makes managing her two boys look easy. Nevermind that they are age 2 and almost 4 years and have more energy than tasmanian devils. Never one to stay at home, she can be found at Disneyland, Legoland, Hullabaloo or any number of kids events or activities around San Diego and her boys are still alive and uninjured...oh, wait - she did go through a broken toe with her oldest... You'd never guess she is actually a CPA who works part-time on top of everything else she manages around her house. Her hubby Mark even helps out once in awhile, too!

Crazy kids

Mom Truths

I started thinking about Mom Truths the other day when I went shopping for some skinny jeans at Nordstrom. The sales girl that was helping me was in her early twenties and was shocked that I didn’t have a pair of skinny blue jeans yet in my wardrobe. She basically asked me where I had […]

Reading to Your Kids (maybe not you, but someone!)

Looking for an alternative to TV shows when you need to keep your kids occupied for a few minutes? My kids and I have discovered a couple of websites that contain videos of people reading children’s books aloud and my kids love it. The videos do not show any people, they just show the book […]

Jedi Mind Tricks Or How To Get Your Kid To Eat Their Dinner

When I became a mom about 5 years ago, I didn’t have any real, recent experience with kids. So, I read a lot of baby books along with my pregnancy books and I developed a clear plan on how to deal with the midnight feedings and swaddling. When my oldest got to be a toddler, […]

The beginnings of our disaster kit

Updating Your Family’s Disaster Kit

As a mom, I have started to think more about disaster preparedness – not the normal day-to-day disasters but earthquakes and flooding and, especially here in San Diego, fires. I am thinking that no longer will my one flashlight with old batteries in it suffice as a disaster kit. So, I did some research online […]

Souplantation - Eating out with kids

Eating Out with Kids – Souplantation

Nothing pleases me more (well, perhaps that is a slight exaggeration) than watching my kids eat vegetables and other healthy food. Whenever I see my kids eating broccoli or tomatoes or even corn, I feel like I must be doing something right. I just imagine their little bodies growing stronger and healthier with each bite. […]
