I took a hot bath today.
Maybe that doesn’t seem newsworthy to you. It really shouldn’t be, I guess. But the fact that I took that bath at 3:45pm, in the middle of a workday, was big news to me.
I work at home.
That statement still seems unreal. For almost all of my adult life, I have worked in an office. The past 16 years haven’t been exactly all 9 to 5, since travel was a major part of my career, but I still left my house to go to work every day. Until this…

As many people know, drunk driving is a dangerous activity that substantially increases the chances of getting in an accident. These dangers have prompted most states to pass laws to penalize drunk driving and inform drivers about its dangers. However, the dangers of texting while driving are just beginning to become widely known. Most people who text while behind the wheel are younger children who lack a more mature understanding of driving. With limited experience, teens and young adults…Continue

This last week, as part of Big M’s in home therapy we all gathered the room full of toys together and sorted through them. The goal was to organize the toys to be easier to find, sort through them and pick ones to donate or discard and to set up a new toy system.
I am quite excited for this new toy system! We broke everything up into small bags and buckets. They get one bucket of toys in the living room at a time. Before they can get a new bucket out they must pick up and put the…Continue

With August approaching we realize summer will soon be over. As parents, summer reminds of our childhood memories—spending the day outdoors, soaking up the warm summer sun and playing hide-and-seek in the tall grass.
The same can’t be said for our children today. With the digital age upon us, the world moves fast and many children are missing the important moments in life that should be remembered and cherished.
With precious time left in summer, we challenge…Continue

Jackson hops in the car this morning where I am waiting to drive him to camp and my first question is: did you brush your teeth? "Yes," he replies. "Is that the truth," I ask. "Yes, I don't lie!" Alrighty then, car goes into drive, Mommy hits the gas, looks in…

I've always been of the opinion that Play-Doh, Silly Putty, and all things gooey should be "outside" toys. They just always seem to crumble into little bits all over the floor for someone's feet to drag throughout the entire damn house. And this is EXACTLY why I should have known better than to allow my children to…Continue

Happy Hump Day Mama’s! Let’s get right down to the nitty gritty. No one likes to be embarrassed, especially in public. As a Mama of 4 I can tell you that I have had my fair share of public embarrassment. I felt like I wanted to crawl into a cave and leave my child on the outside. I was not only…

My son is a picky dresser.
I've not been allowed to pick out his clothing for at least two years. Yes, I supply him with enough neutral pants/shorts so he generally matches, but it is quite clear that I am not allowed to pick out his shirts. If he needs new clothes, then he is picking them…

Back when Rick and I were just married, before Ricky was born, I had this great idea: I was going to work from home full time with NO HELP once we had kids. An infant can’t be that hard to take care of, right? Looking back, I really can’t believe that either of us were so naive to think that was actually going to work. But after he was born, we tried.
We tried, and tried, and tried. And surprise of all surprises, it didn’t work.
Here’s the thing: no matter how little or…Continue

Mommy Monday: Dry Brushing Posted on July 29, 2014 I need to get healthy. Like for real. I have a wedding in a little over nine months where I will be standing in an unforgiving white dress in front of people on a beach. I also will be standing again in front of people as a matron of honor for my sister’s wedding in November of next year. I say healthy because I have learned to appreciate my butt, boobs, and curves. But I got some stuff, like all mamas especially moms of twins or multiples,…Continue

There's the planning, the activities, the worry about the fun that you will or will not have, and the exhaustion from traveling.…Continue
