Today, I found myself pondering again what I have thought about a few times since Landon was born: do I want another child? Landon was only months old when family members and friends started to ask about the second child, and a lot of my mom friends seem to be having the second child now or are pregnant or working towards it. Not us. Thankfully, I don’t have a huge urge to have another one, although I loved being pregnant and had such a wonderful drug-free birth experience. I say thankfully… Continue

So I just caught this story from the news the other day and it has been festering in my head since then. This little six year old boy brings his cub scouts knife, spoon and fork combo deal to school to use it for lunch because it is probably the coolest trinket that he thinks he has because it is a combo of a spoon and fork and the school decides that he has to go to a school for troubled kids as his punishment!! This poor kid is in cub scouts, I am willing to bet that if cub scouts are willing… Continue

Today there are so many things that can make life a little tricky and add stress to the daily grind. Sometimes you just need to let it out in order to move forward. It can be hard to find a place to do that without someone there to tell you how wrong you are to feel that way.
I started a group so that we can all have a safe place to let our feelings, good or bad, out without that fear. We all need to get things off of our chest sometimes.
I hope that everyone who wants to have a… Continue

My grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. She had a mastectomy at a time when I was too young to even understand what that meant. I am now 38 and acutely aware of what it means as we honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My grandmother outlived her cancer, dying of natural causes, and I know many of you who are taking care of your elders or dear friends are praying for the same outcome.
Not too long ago I was introduced to a few remarkable women who created the TNBC foundation in… Continue

So it is now the middle of October, scarey yes I know, October just started, or more less, school just started. We are basically having the beginning of winter here in great ol' Minnesota. Cold, damp, cold, windy. That about sums it up. One thing that just frustrates me is having to bundle my kids up to go trick-or-treating. How in the world are they suppose to show off their costumes that they are so excited about? Not easy. Yes, it is true, if you have seen those emails that talks about… Continue

Yesterday, a case-control study looking at SIDS risk factors was published on BMJ. Since then, news stories have sprang up across the US with headlines like "WARNING: Co-sleeping With Your Infant Can Kill Them" and "Over Half of Cot Deaths Linked to Cosleeping." These headlines are meant to grab your attention--and scare the living fire out of you. (They worked, didn't they?) However, once you take a closer look, you'll see that these news articles not only are misrepresenting the findings (big… Continue

I have been working some extra shifts to catch up to so many bills that have accumulated over the past months and years. I am grateful beyond measure that I have a job to work at and that I am able to get some extra work occasionally. That being said, I was driving home the other night thinking about how lucky previous generations of our Mothers were and how they had it so much easier.
Imagine just being able to have that One Hat to wear ~being a mom and housewife minus the taxi… Continue

(when a week’s worth of domestic business is conducted in 48 hours and no one knows what anyone is doing because it’s just not possible and besides the toddler has broken into and is ransacking the bottom kitchen cupboard and who can remember what dangerous implements might have been tossed in there the last time anyone put anything away—whenever that was?)
