When Jordan was first injured, I searched for reason in every corner of my life, of God’s promises, in every insignificance I could find. I said very often to my sister that if it were Jordan’s destiny to be nearly fatally injured by her babysitter and to live with permanent brain injury, then I was glad God chose me to take care of her because some mothers would abandon their newly imperfect babies to the oh well Dumpster.…
I consider myself an expert in the field of Non-Verbal Communication. My husband is an engineer, which is to say he has a PhD in Non-Verbal Communication. He was on the Dean’s list when I met him. He flourished under the tutelage of a blue collar step-father, a man of few words: “Who left the milk out?” and “I’m going out.”
I am psychic. I can read my mind. I think everyone else should be able to, too. Especially if we’ve spent more than an hour trauma bonding. Or if we’ve been… Continue

I read this post today from Bored Mommy who is anything but boring. Someone left a bizarre comment about how being a Mommy (or Mummy) rather than a Parent, is somehow undignified and infantile. It's incredible, really.
It is now 10pm. We have internet, although this morning if you had seen or heard Principe stomping around the living room alternatively throwing and picking through the internet cables you would have thought we would never have it. In fact, he
claimed that we were not sent the right stuff in order to set it up.
But suddenly, as I came out of our room, I found him sliding on his
knees in a victory dance looking for a high five. His dark mood…
Did you know that your local library is a great place for family fun? Our library has many story time classes, craft days, movie days and after school programs. We also visit every week not only for books but for movies, books on tape, CD's and a great selection of magazines and local newspapers.…
Munch has discovered Barbie. I was unaware that she had them at her new daycare (which she started this past fall). So I was surprised when, at Christmas, she told Santa that a Barbie doll was at the top of her wish list. (And, from all accounts-because I wasn't with her- Santa assured her there would be one under the tree on Christmas morning- we won't be visiting THAT mall Santa again!) I loved Barbies when I was a kid- I had a bunch AND a dreamhouse- no Corvette though! But I just felt that… Continue

Munch got a birthday check from her very generous grandparents recently. Rather than just depositing it for her, I wanted her to understand and experience the process of saving it. So off we went to our bank where Munch told the teller that she had a "posit". The teller asked if she'd like to endorse the check, so Munch carefully wrote her name on the back. I decided that she could have $15 dollars of it to go shopping with, so the teller gathered up fifteen dollar bills and counted them out… Continue

As our pregnancy nears the end, our Friday nights are no longer our usual Friday nights. Friday night has always been (like many couples) a night to go out to dinner and spend the evening around the town as a way to unwind from the…
My 4 year old daughter has wanted to be a "movie star" since she saw
Eloise goes to Hollywood. Not that I think she really knows what that
means or what it entails but I have convinced myself that I will never
be the shatterer of hopes and dreams when it comes to my girls. If they
want to do it or be it, I'm going… Continue
I had an opportunity to meet Tricia at a business meeting in Dallas last month.
She is a smart lady!
It was great to meet and chat with, she is helping people develop their own businesses.
It was an honor to sow into her business and her life with My Wired Style!
It is wonderful to have lovely messages like this.
So to all of you who sow into someone else's life and business too....Thank You!
Welcome to the first Mom's in Boyland blog! I started this to document my quest for conceiving a child that does not have a penis, namely a beautiful baby girl. Let me give you some background. I'm 28 years old and have been with my wonderful husband , Brian, for 5 1/2 years. Together we have two wonderful boys; Bryson who will be 4 in January, and Tyler who will be 11 in January. I had Tyler when I was 17 with my high school boyfriend, Tom. Tyler spends a lot of…
With all of the excitement and anticipation of the baby coming, it can really start to be stressful. I think we have everything ready for his arrival. Our hospital bags are packed, the car seats are installed in both cars, the nursery is done, the baby monitor is running and all the toys are put…
It’s been about a week that we dramatically changed things here in the Bleasdale kitchen. After reading Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet and watching the movie Food Inc., my husband decided that he wants to radically change his eating habits to hopefully get rid of the pain he has been in for months.
In today's difficult economic times, saving money has become a necessary way of life. Parents (and adults) are packing their lunch everyday to help reduce extra food expenses. For parents of multiples, packing lunches means also having to buy more supplies, which is costly. A creative and efficient way to transport lunches is using the Easylunchbox system.
The Easylunchbox system has been created by mother of three and actress Kelly Lester.…
