He is the Teacher, I am the Student

One of the things that always impresses me and leaves an indent (sometimes literally) about my son is the fact that he is the teacher and I am the student. We were looking through our photographs the other day, and my husband said that one of them was from the time when I was having trouble getting him to nurse. For a while I didn't remember it (and even argued about it), but there was a period when I was having trouble. But I did figure out what he was trying to tell me, with his nonverbal… Continue

Flying Fir

This post is about finding and keeping the "perfect" Christmas tree. It's about a mom who had a one month old baby, a mini van, a 8 foot Christmas tree, one piece of twine and a red headed husband who was sick of the cold.

Oh, this tale can not turn out well.



We decided to cut down our tree last year. It was interesting to say the least. Logan took a hack saw to our sixty dollar selection and was nearly crushed by the falling Douglas Fir. Russ saved him in the nick of time. We… Continue

Suri Cruise Loves Her Ladybug Shoes, As Seen on Oprah with Tom Cruise - GIVEAWAY!

Did you know that ladybugs are lucky? Just ask Jenny from Monkey-Toes, and Katja from Skimbaco, two incredible sweet, down-to-earth mompreneurs who I'm blessed to know who are having their dreams come true, all because of ladybugs.



Katja's website, which offers upscale fashions for the whole family, was contacted by a friend of Tom Cruise sometime ago, and after a few choice items from Skimbaco were purchased for the Cruise family and made into a nifty gift basket, including the… Continue

A Thousand Words Thursday



D and his great-grandmother celebrate Thanksgiving. The years she has seen and the piles of children who have grown up to be adults, some even with children of their own, are professed in the lines on her face and the gray in her hair. The exuberant smile, wide eyes and flawless skin with a toothless grin on the nearly youngest in the family tree shows the opposite. Someday we will all wear our years like badges, just like Grandma does. For now,… Continue

Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Vagina

In grade school I used to love those jokes where a kid would learn the wrong names of sexual anatomy and then say things like, "I saw Daddy's submarine going toward Mommy's abyss (or whatever. I forget the wording). Anyway, telling and hearing these jokes was not only a fun activity, but it implied you understood sex and sex accessories: "Swords," "Tunnels," and "Headlights."

My daughter, newly four, asked the other night at the dinner table what I would do if someone asked me to show them… Continue

Holiday Ideas for Teenage Son 17 years old

Every year, I have stuffed my son’s Christmas stocking with hygienic supplies that he usually would not buy for himself, or are a bit more on the luxury scale to make it a bit more special. Mainly, these are items that aren’t too pricey, but he would never buy for himself, or don’t make the day to day budget. Here is an example of what he can expect from Mama-clause thise year (and hopefully he doesn’t read this blog, but if he does, I am sure he won’t be disappointed LOL!)… Continue

You Don’t Have to be a Duggar (OR a Hilton, Thank Goodness) to Live A Simple Life

Oh come on, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about. In fact, I doubt I even need to explain the title because you’re nodding your head thinking, “Love those Duggars, but MAN I don’t want to wear their clothes! And dang it, I like my eyeliner! I NEED my eyeliner!!” Calm down, I need my eyeliner, too.



I LOVE the Duggars. I watch “17 Kids and Counting” on TLC and have followed them since “14 Kids and Pregnant Again!” way back in 2004. When I first saw them on TV, I was impressed, to… Continue

I CAN'T HOLD IT IN ANY LONGER!!!!

I'm about to bust, because I've been holding some stuff in. I just can't hold it in any longer, because I am SO EXCITED! Once you're done reading this you'll probably be like, "What the heck, Rach? This stuff is NOT important at all!" My answer to that is--right now, they're important to me!

Early Reading skills

As an English Lit. tutor, I soon became frustrated with trying to teach cildren to read English. What a ridiculous language. With many other languages, words are spelt in a way that reflects the way you say them. In English, we add extra letters just for the fun of it. I mean, come on, someone was on the wacky weed when they decided the spelling for thorough or tough or lamb.



I was never a fan of teaching the alphabet either. Just how does knowing that the… Continue
