My mind is racing today as I have come from a very long meeting involving one Principal and two teachers in my daughters school. My head is pounding and my heart is racing from all that both they and I had to take in this morning. You see today I went to the school to go about getting my daughter the intervention and resource hours she needs to help her achieve her full potential in a mainstream setting, this is no mean feat as the Principal and I are not on the same wavelength, the resource… Continue

Cub Scouts now, Rescue Worker later
This week I was feeling a little glum. I had a few close calls with the kiddos that really threw me off my game.
One kid didn’t hold the bus buddy’s hand on the way to the bus stop the other day. She stepped onto the road but jumped back quickly when a driver honked. I spent the rest of the day feeling like I was going to puke.
The very next day, I left baby alone rolling… Continue

Have you heard that new saying that 40's the new 20? Well, I don't know who's believing that load of crap but I'm pretty sure its not the 20 year olds and I'm fast approaching the 40 year end of the spectrum and I'm not believing it for a second. So, Oprah..please stop perpetuating this myth. First, there was the Million little Pieces guy and now this. Come on Oprah, just because you are spoon feeding it to us...some things I just refuse to believe. So, to be straight 40 is not the new 20, no… Continue

A friend from work popped into my classroom the other day bearing a humongous tissue paper pompom. "Could you use this?" she asked. She also had a large garbage bag filled with more where this first pompom came from. My initial thought was no way do I want more STUFF in my classroom, until she suggested that Munch might like them. Well, then there was no hesitation-"I'll take them!"
Up they went in Munch's room in shades of light pink, magenta, and coral. I figured they'd go well with the… Continue

This is a soothing oatmeal bath that I created about 8 years ago. I was using Aveeno bath powder but it was just too expensive to purchase enough for 3 people to use.(for itchy eczema)
What I did
I took some oatmeal flakes and processed it until it was as fine as I could get it like for the oatmeal face mask here
Then I took the finely ground oatmeal and put about 1 cup of it… Continue

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com here
As the due date rapidly approaches (5 weeks and 3 days at this posting), it's getting close to deciding what kind of family we will be.
Are we going to be a Huggies or a Pampers family? I used to think a diaper is a diaper but I now know this is not the case. In the land of "You get what you pay for", diapers seem to be a force to… Continue

The other day, a woman at work mentioned that she was terrified to one day find herself in labor. Without skipping a beat, I replied, "Women are so overly dramatic about it. It's not that bad."
Yes, I said that. Really. And at the time, I meant it. As soon as it left my mouth, however, a little voice inside of my head -- the Memory Keeper, perhaps -- laughed.
The first half of my statement I stand by. Hollywood paints labor as a gory, blood-curdling nightmare where women… Continue

Taking baby steps is going pretty good. I've joined an awesome online group. I've been honest with myself when tracking calories. I've recently started to tell people of my goal to lose weight or go under the knife. I'm off to a good start.
Yesterday, while at work, I passed on 2 cupcakes, a Little Debbie snack, and Goldfish crackers. Today, my husband got 2 large Pizza Hut pizzas. I did not eat one bite. I didn't even take a peek...but damn they smelled delicious.
Not one… Continue

When I posted the YouTube video of Miss Kitty a few days ago, it got me thinking about exercise and overall fitness in general. I've been feeling rather frustrated lately. This is due to the fact that I haven't been able to exercise. I mean really exercise, full out, for over three years.
Whenever I share this frustration with my friends, some of them look at me blankly. And others roll their eyes, "Uh, Holly, I'm perfectly happy not… Continue

She loves to play and will climb right on top of you as if she was… Continue

Well, today has not started as well as I thought it was. I mean I'm always clashing with how I think things should be and the way my husband thinks. Every day there's a routine I have to follow, at least when it come to the kids. Once everyone is up, breakfast, then the dishes must be washed, then the kids get their bath and if we leave to my mom's ( I should say that my husband co-owns a business with my dad) wich is where they do business and my mother and I take care of my kids and do all… Continue

Hunter is 16 months old now, and I'm simply amazed at how fast he's growing, learning, doing.
No longer does my little man wake up crying. He now sits up and carries on baby babble conversations with his favorite cushy -soft stuffed animal, Winnie the Pooh. This morning I decided to hang out in bed to listen to him for a few extra minutes. I was shocked, to say the least. Out of his mouth, clear as day, came "Winnie the… Continue
