Good News! I got my car washed, and it's squeaky clean.
Well, maybe not squeaky clean....
My minivan gets disgusting. I have to clean it before going to the carwash: Pick up discarded cheese-stick wrappers and Goldfish bags, squashed Fig Newtons. Scrape up encrusted spilled coffee from the cup holders. Pry up from floor mats sticky candy canes or melted Gummy Bears.
At the carwash, I can barely look those…Continue
What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner!" - Colette
I usually give up chocolate, or pop. One time, I think, I tried to give up coffee. But not this year.
I'm talking about Lent, of course. Lent, for me, is a season of reflection, of spiritual housecleaning. I give up a little something, or try to add something meaningful to my life.
I'm not always successful - and in the past, my changes haven't…Continue

The other day, some girlfriends and I started trading “Motherhood was toughest for me when” stories. One friend, who I will call Kelli, admitted that when her kids were infants, she felt like she was going stir crazy. “They weren’t even talking to me yet. Being home full-time just wasn’t right for me.” That’s when Kelli decided she was a better mother when she worked. (Later on, she was able to work part-time, which made everything balance out.) Another friend who I will call Lila admitted…Continue

We had our 'mini' Thanksgiving in February over the weekend. My husband has 6 siblings, and they all have their own families that they spend the Thanksgiving holiday with. My sister-in-law, Cara, started a tradition several years ago. She felf that it was important for the siblings to have time together. So, she prepares the traditional Thanksgiving meal, and brings it to my home in Febrary. All the siblings that are available come and spend the weekend. This gives…Continue

I am turning 40 in twelve days and I have never worn makeup in my life, okay except for maybe a few unfortunate attempts when I was 14 and angry at the world….black eye liner!
Not wearing makeup was never an issue for me, until about a year ago. I have an increasing case of Vitiligo and it has come up onto my face, gone are the cute little freckles that used to speckle themselves whimsically across my nose and down onto my cheeks. It became…Continue

I have three boys. And when you have three boys it takes a lot to gross you out. Puke? No problem. Poop smears? Small potatoes. Green boogers dripping out of noses? Bring it. Watching your kids lick the boogers off their faces... ok I admit that one makes me shudder.
But I just recently encountered one thing that still makes me cringe when I mentally replay the scenario and how I almost lost my tough mom pin.
Soren has reached the Independence stage in his life.…Continue
Many bloggers sometimes complain that people don't follow back during blog hopping.. You are wrong if you think so. There was a time i thought it was true but later found out that it was not.

This is what your blog displays if people clicks on your…Continue

Last week I posted a story on a Dartmouth University study that detected high levels of arsenic in some organic formula that used organic brown rice syrup as its main ingredient. Although no specific brands were mentioned by the study,…Continue

Are you sick of washing bottles? Are you sick of sterilizing your bottles? Well, so am I! Ever since I found the Playtex Drop-Ins I have saved tons of time. The liners come pre-sterilized. All you have to do is drop one into the bottle, fill it up with milk, twist on the nipple and WAH-LA, you are ready to feed that little…Continue

A few months ago while waiting in line at the grocery store I happened to pick up a random tabloid and began flipping through it. Normally I shun such magazines, even turn them over so the back cover faces out so no unsuspecting girl, mother, grandmother, sister, or friend has to be subjected to the non-realities of such imaginary worlds that are portrayed in these magazines. But anyway, on this day, my mind must have been spent from the demands of lines, to-do lists, expectations and…Continue

"The quickest way for a parent to get a child's attention is to sit down and look comfortable."
Children are both smart and ruthless. They all have a sixth sense on when their parental units finally have a moment to breathe and they leap into action, determined to never allow a second of peace. MY kids have this down to a science.
Today is a typical day. By the time 10AM rolled around I…Continue
