Life is all about the little details that go unnoticed. The little things that make life wonderful like a warm sunny day when the light comes into your bedroom to wake you up. Or that small available free time when you could pick up a book and read it from cover to cover. Or even going to the bathroom minus a crowd. …

It's the only logical explanation. Because if I were not truly crazy, then the other reality is that I'm a raging bee-otch, an alternative I am not ready to embrace. But certain things keep sending me over the edge, and I'm wondering if there are any made-for-TV movies about mothers ending up in loony bins due to any of the following: Continue

I love books. Always have. We have a million of them. From children's books that clutter the shelves, well worn and read, to my more mature books, boxed and protected away from tiny hands. We can not have enough books.
I am always on the lookout for new and exciting books that not only are interesting to my children, but also illustrate a lesson to be learned. A new voice that my children can relate to and understand.

I had been toying around with this idea for a while but, as with
everything else, had been pushed to the back burner because- well... I
kept forgetting about it. As I do with so many other ideas. ;) I got
this idea from a dear friend of mine over at the Awfully Sweet Mommy's
forum who said that she feels "frumpy" and "Who has time to be glam with two toddlers?". My answer to her was that ANYONE can.… Continue

November 20 is National Adoption Day. A day to raise awareness and celebrate adoptive parents and children everywhere. It's funny, I never even knew it existed, or really cared, until recently. Until my blog, really. Until I forced myself to post honestly about my feelings, about a myriad of emotions as a mother and realized, this event- my adoption - is more important to me than I thought.
I was an abused child. The daughter of a schizophrenic mother and truck driver father. The 5th… Continue

thanksgiving...let us offer prayer, for the leaders of the… Continue
