Snappy Turtle Momma

 

 

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…

Working (slowly) toward the power of positive thinking

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…

From a Mother to Another

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…

Pummelled

Crunching, snapping, grinding, squeezing, crushing, pulverising pressure was my first ever Christmas pressie from Boo. Then she went and ordered me a back massage. She does love me. I think.


I normally frequent beauty establishments where you are consistently referred to as 'love', prices are handwritten on florescent cardboard stars…

Thanksgiving in February

Hi Everyone:

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…

40 Year Old Makeup Virgin

Facts:

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…

Grossed Out

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.…

Messy

Mum's poorly. Don't feel bad; it's her own fault. She's decided to become one of them amcobolicks. 


At first I thought she was just on some marathon baby talk bender. Sprouting babyish gobbeldy-gook for AGES. Turns out she was just on a bender. She thought she was talking sense, and to be fair she spoke more than usual; it was the slurring…

She Had An Amazing Capacity for Love and Friendship.....

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…
