FUll Disclosure

I am a lawyer…kind of. In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit I have never practiced. Not a day. It’s not because I couldn’t find a

job…I didn’t even look. It’s not

because I didn’t get good grades…United Missouri Bank (UMB) thought I had a

promising career in estate planning.

It’s because I wanted to be a lawyer…but I didn’t want to be a lawyer.…

How To Teach Children to Sew

I’ve been working on a little project with my girls. I don’t get to it everyday. And, the lesson doesn’t last too long (I am working with a 2 and 4-year-old, you know). But, we’re learning to sew.



Truthfully, sewing with children is a lot of fun…though it does require that you use plenty of patience.…

Fun and Educational All In One



Children love to play with toys that are fun. They sometimes entertain themselves for hours with a favorite toy. Wouldn't it be great if they spent that time learning instead of just playing?

Educational toys allow children to play and learn at the same time. Finding toys that your child enjoys playing with and learns from might take some trial and error, but it is well worth it. The right toys can help your child learn skills that she will need in school, and those…

Mommy Necklaces

As a mom to 3, 2 of which are rough and tumble boys, I am always on the lookout for durable products...be it furniture, clothing, shoes, or jewelery for myself, I need things to be able to stand up to the test my boys are sure to put them through. When my 4 year old was younger and even still now, if I put on a nice new necklace, he is sure to run right up to me and in an attempt to "look" at it, grab it and yank it as hard as he can to get a better "look". And my youngest is still nursing and… Continue

The Wettest Yard Sale. Ever.

Today was our neighborhood's much anticipated GIANT Yard Sale. For the past several weeks, I've rummaged through our house, gathering up items long since forgotten, covered in dust, just waiting for the perfect occasion to come out of storage. After four and a half years in this house, we've finally come to terms with the fact that the perfect occasion was this sale.



This GIANT sale.



More than 20 families, signs galore, advertising out the wazoo.



And we were… Continue

THE "SKY CURTAIN" SEPARATING ME FROM THEM!!!!!



Look familiar? Ah, yes, the paradoxical gird-iron (thin-as-toilet-paper)

curtain that separates the plane into 2 groups. I've been flying for 32

years & only once have I been on the other side of the curtain.

Admittedly, when I had that chance, I LOVED it! I felt like a princess.…

Homeschooling 101

For various reasons, more and more families have opted to teach their children at home. Parents are dissatisfied with the quality of education in the public school system and concerned about the safety of their children. Here’s a brief summary based on my own experience with my daughter from kindergarten through third grade.



Social Development: You, as the parent, need to schedule a lot of play dates, plan various field trips, and do as much as possible as a family… Continue

Repotting: Not as Hard as It Seems

Have you ever procrastinated about caring for your plants merely because

your didn't know how to do it? Well, that rang true in my case. I have

this house plant that my sister gave me, which my other sister had given

her. It is a beautiful, thriving plant but the stems are pushed all the

way to the edges. It actually needed to be repotted about 8 years ago

so I'm not sure how it has managed to survive this long.



I had no idea how to put it in a bigger pot… Continue

Is Partylite Worth it?

I love candles. They don't really add that much heat but that soft glow just makes you feel nice and cozy inside. All that mattered to me was that it looked nice and burned. About two years ago, my sister had a PartyLite party. Now I only use PartyLite!



The quality of the products and the customer service are unmatched. The wax doesn't get hot enough to burn little fingers but the candles burn completely and cleanly (pure paraffin and… Continue

Facebook

I had this really good friend in high school. We even lived together for awhile. We were really close, I thought.



After I became pregnant things slowly changed. My biggest priority was having a healthy baby. I lost a lot of friends who still wanted to be kids themselves and party it up... nothing wrong with that at all.



I… Continue

feeling better

I am slowly feeling better. I started feeling sick Wednesday so four days is long enough for me to be sick. Not that I have any say in how long a cold stays in my system but you know what I mean. I’m done with it. I’ve pretty much laid low and stayed near the house except for the few “emergency” outings I needed to take. Meanwhile, during my resting periods I’ve been reading and looking things up on the Googles. I’ve read several of my new raw food books and I fear that I’m not quite as…
