Do you ever wonder who was the first wise mom who spoke the words, “No swimming for 20 minutes after eating.”? I think it was first uttered by a pioneer woman who had just finished feeding her brood and finally had a second to sit and scarf down some cold beans, when her youngest shouted, “Ma, swimming…want to go now.” Knowing that would mean forfeiting her chance to eat and relax for a moment, she… Continue

An occasional foray
Into the kitchen everyday
Has led to many nightly dinners
Of a meal made for winners.
Dear peanut butter jelly, just as night begins to fall,
The children start to call,
“Woe is me. I’m hungry!”
And now, my… Continue

apples and oranges, people were never meant...to be compared. By looks,
gender or what intellectually we've got going on upstairs. For we were
all created with a specific purpose...wired with unique and original
So why worry about trying to… Continue

Internet, this is what I see every night. Einstein or I will either read him a story from his fairy tale books or a different book and then he lays there and "reads" until he gets tired. Every now and then he'll ask if he can read us a story. It's usually a story that he has memorized. And if its not a memorized one, he'll just turn the pages and tell us what is going on in each… Continue

It is the Friday before Mother’s Day and I am reflecting on all that makes me a mom, especially a mother of internationally adopted daughters. I am a typical mother, Continue
I make sure my kids are well fed, with as little sugar and processed food on
the table as I can manage…although I tend to lose the candy game with their
Dad. I make sure they have clean
clothes and that they started out matching when I bought them…not always
successful on the fashion…

and one the games was a baby shower mad lib.

“Before whining about the distance you drive, think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.” ~Author unknown
I don’t think many of us ever realize just how fortunate we are. Yesterday, I had a chance to briefly enter the world of someone who has very little, and I realized how much I take for granted.
While talking to this man, I learned that they have a specific amount of money they can use for food every month; with the prices of… Continue

I just joined MBC yesterday, and WOW you ladies are friendly!! The welcome's that have come pouring in are wonderful and have definitely made me feel welcome. And all the tools available here are great! I love that there is so much help out there for a brand new blogger, like myself.
I have a long way to go to get my blog to where I'd like it to be. With 7 young children it's difficult to write everyday, and even though with this busy life I have a ton to write about - most nights by… Continue

A lazy Tuesday afternoon found me napping on the sofa, my husband playing the stupid xbox and my brother in law cleaning the house.
I know, what is wrong with this picture right?
Anyhow,it was one of those naps where I was in and out of sleep dreaming about Edward Cullen and chocolate. Can it get any better than this?
No, no it can't.
The 9yr old came home from school, I was still half asleep, but probably could have gotten up if I really wanted… Continue

I have two posts this week about Mother's Day!
Maybe a gift isn't what moms want, maybe they want help with their to-do list, a family activity, or just some quiet time.
Are you looking for ideas to tell your family?

I think I’ve mentioned before that I work with babies. Its not a high paying job but its emotionally satisfying. Hopefully soon I’ll find work in my field, but in the meantime I enjoy nurturing the littlest of little ones. One thing I find really interesting about the babies is their names. Names have changed over… Continue
