Favorite Halloween Memory

As part of Etsy bloggers, I have to blog on certain subjects each month. This month being October the subject matter is Halloween.



Without having to think about my favorite Halloween memory is of the Chainsaw Murderer. My friends and I were trick or treating and we came to a house at the end of the street. Nice house with a beautiful landscape area sitting right in the middle of the yard. We approached the house and got our treat (pencils) and as we were leaving the guy asked if we… Continue

Newborn Cloth Diaper Review

Emery is our first little one to have a fluffy bum from birth. I chose to go with mostly fitteds and covers for the newborn stage. I also ordered some all-in-ones for this stage. I love the fitted option for a newborn! Those explosive newborn poos never leaked with our fitteds and covers. If the poo somehow managed to make it out of the fitted, which was rare, it was still trapped in the cover. So, no up-the-back-and-into-the-hair poo messes with Emery. And his little bum was oh-so-adorable!… Continue

Life

How much of what we put out into the universe is true to who we are as humans?





It seems to me that life is like that of a work of theatre. You have your opening act, birth. You make your way front and center and become the one person that everyone pays attention to. As you grow you realize that people stop paying attention to every little detail that is your life. You start to become a diva as you enter toddlerhood. Constantly learning but struggling to stay the… Continue

A Word of thanks

Saying Thanks.







When someone does something for you so amazing, how do you say thank you? How can you possibly use two words that have become so over used in today's society, when it means so much more than just a simple thank you.



I am very grateful for the friendships that I have in life. Only because I don't honestly have that many. I have people who I talk to and would go have supper with now and then, but true friendships, I can literally count on the… Continue

Out of the closet!

OUT OF THE CLOSET!



No, not the broom closet LOL But the guys at work officially know that I am a surrogate, and they are cool with it. THANK FREAKING GOD! I feel like a weight has been lifted some. I was worried about the reaction as many of the people I work with on the dock are really close minded. And I literally had to explain the process because they had no idea it was possible to do that. SO yea, tells you how close minded they are.



But now that its out I feel like I… Continue

Mommy What is heaven?

Mommy, What is Heaven?



For the last two years, I have been dreading this moment in time. My five-year old asked me with a curious look in his eye. My mind raced, my heartbeat sped up. What do I say? How do I answer that question?



On Monday, September 21st, 2009, my husband lost his last grandfather to heart failure. We told the children that he died. They know what death is and are somewhat okay with the idea. They understand it when bugs and animals die, but they have… Continue

Top 10 Reasons You Couldn't PAY Me to Have Another Kid

This post could very well get me unfollowed on Twitter. Mommy bloggers all over are going to read this (this assumes, of course, that I have that many readers) and say "See? It's women like that who don't deserve a child." Look, I'm just one of those women who knows her limitations. I have one very awesome daughter and absolutely no wish to roll that particular set of dice again. Nope. I know when to fold and walk away from the table. And don't ask me about these gambling metaphors either.… Continue

We Attended the World Breastfeeding Challenge

When I heard about the World Breastfeeding Challenge, scheduled for October 3, I immediately knew I wanted to go. I’m up for a challenge! All over the world mothers would unite and latch on their children at the same time — what a great idea to promote breastfeeding! So Landon and I drove to the White Plains, New York, location, which was Full Circle Family Care. I told him there would be a lot of babies, and since he loves babies, he was all exited.



I was proudly sporting my “Yes,… Continue

I'm dreaming of a white.......halloween??!

I am sitting in my living room listening to the wind whip everything that isn't nailed down around. I really hope nothing goes through our living room windows!lol.

Dare I say winter is upon us and the warm weather is just a memory that will have to keep us warm for the next five months.

All summer you hear people complaining about how hot it is, how unbearable the heat is, blah blah blah. Now the cold has arrived and a new wimper will be heard around Alberta. "It's too cold, is it… Continue

Don't Cry For Me Argentina, You Whore

Yesterday was a great day. (Not really, but for purposes of this post, it was fantastic) I finally had a meeting with the director of the organization, Friends of Seniors, where I'll be volunteering to drive senior citizens to their doctor appointments, or grocery shopping or wherever. Plus, I got my first "assignment" which was pretty exciting. (Omg...when I re-read that sentence, as noble as it may sound....dude...I'm a freaking loser) Anyway, the other thing that made it fantabulous was the… Continue

Are Bloggers "Starving Artists?"

Here are some truisms about “starving artists:”
  • Most artists will indeed continue to produce work throughout their lives whether or not they ever receive payment, sufficient compensation, or recognition for his or her work, simply because they want to.
  • However, most artists like to be paid for their work rather than continuing as a “starving artist.”
  • Some artists “go commercial,” attempting to combine their…

Children are our mirrors.

Did you know that your children are sometimes your mirrors? They come into this world to teach us something about ourselves? What does your child teach you about yourself?

My daughter taught me determination, persistance and perseverence. My 4 year old daughter is a very independant child. She wants to do everything by herself and she will try and try and try until she will succeed. Sometimes she will get frustrated when she tries to button a shirt or some pants, but she will persist until… Continue

Incredible Buttermilk Biscuits

I had a big carton of buttermilk left over in my refrigerator from a recipe I tried recently- what it was, I don't even remember now... but with the little chill in the air, thought I'd whip up a hot batch of biscuits. My go-to recipe has always been Fannie Farmer's baking soda biscuits- sometimes with… Continue

We are beyond happy but never relieved. This past few weeks has brought many declarations of bad news in our little… Continue
