I'm the editor of Smart, a magazine for women in southcentral Pennsylvania. I said "I do" to my wonderful husband in 2002. We have two adorable children who have taught me much about life and love. With the birth of my second child, I bid farewell to my dreams of having a clean house, folded laundry and family dinners on weeknights.

Just get dressed already!

Smart Mama

Why, oh why can’t my kids JUST GET DRESSED in the mornings?

On a recent school day, Samantha wanted to wear a cute little summer romper with an American flag pattern. I told her I understood that she loves that outfit, but it was just too cold and rainy. I even calmly suggested she wait until later in the week, when it might be at least a little warmer.

I got hit with anger. Tears. Steadfast refusal to get dressed.
