After two intense weeks of tantrums, screaming, flopping, crying and whining, my kids have finally had a language breakthrough. For the past four days or so, they have not only been pointing at objects and telling me what they are, but they have been connecting abstract ideas together, using adjectives and nouns to specify their meaning, and using verbs and nouns to create basic sentences and to tell me what they are doing.
They’ve got the command down pat.

So I was trying desperately today to put some jeans on my son who is fitting nicely into 18 month clothes for Pj's and shirts and any other pant but jeans. Here are two pairs of his jeans that are BOTH 18 months…

Let me start this post with declaring I AM A DOG LOVER. Truly, I am. Until last April when I had to put down my beloved Ivan, I had three dogs. Two of them rescues, one purebred (my husband's hunting hopes gone wrong). If I was independently wealthy and had acres of land, I would have my own canine rescue. So, no comments on how I must not be an animal lover.
Today at the post…

My little girl LOVES guacamole. So we headed to the kitchen and whipped up our own batch. It was so delicious, I thought I would share the recipe with you....

I thought a lot about writing this post because I didn't want to sound like an expert blogger, because I'm not, but I definitely want to share the information that I know with those who might be interested but not know where to start.
I've had this blog since my son was born, but only since August have I decided to try and monetize it a little bit. It was hard to get going and actually I had no idea what direction to even head in, or how to get to where I am now without the help of…

Each Christmas I collect all my old cards and put them away for the next year. Not because I am sentimental, but because I know they can be re-purposed for the next year’s gift tags! It’s really easy to do. Read more about creating gift tags from Christmas cards.

A beautiful blogger and great friend of mine wrote a post today about being a fake stay at home mom (during break as a teacher.) She got a lot of well-deserved hits, and I laughed at myself, saying, "I'm going to post where you post, claiming that SAHM is a career."
But, then, I thought, what the heck, self? SAHM is a career.
She writes: As a teacher "for several weeks out of the…

The three most dreaded words my children say to me after a night with little shut eye.
Sarah went to bed at 6 pm last night. She was tired and cranky and hard to be around. So I wrapped her up and put her to bed. As a result of her early bedtime, she was up at 6 am. I think my husband dealt with her early, but at about 6:45 am, after her show was finished, she came to me. Poking me in my face and saying, "It's Up Time."
Katie, true to form, was up way…Continue

am no expert but my opinion is that Christmas chopping does NOT have to be so difficult. I have a novel idea and a very easy formula to make Christmas shopping easier and help you spend a lot less time in the hustle and bustle of hoards of people. Get a pen and paper and get ready to take…Continue

The children have been out of school one day - yes, one day - and I can already feel my sanity slipping away. I'll miss it.
My daughter is already using the time off to ask a few questions, like: When can she get her own computer? Why is her brother being so annoying? Why can't she have a kitten? Or a puppy? And what does Santa have to do with Jesus, and what is the significance of a Christmas tree?
My son doesn't have any questions. He's an entertainer! Ta da!!! So…Continue
