I haven’t been a blogger for very long, really. Sixty posts to be exact. Very short career so far, however I’ve come to see that there are two kinds of bloggers out here:
1. The bloggers who write to share, vent and keep an online diary. Maybe make a few friends along the way. Get some creative ideas or insight. Be a part of a community of intelligent and diverse women.
2. The blogger who is more of a “get as many followers as I can by giving away lots of stuff”. They get… Continue

I am no perfect parent. In fact, I'll be the first to admit that I am FAAAAAAAARRRRR from being a good parent.
My kids play Nintendo too much, they Youtube too much, they don't read, are lazy beyond WORDS!!! I don't spend enough time with them and I'm not too good with mind games and chess. They don't go for tuition enough and they CAN get better grades in school if I pushed them enough.
These past couple of… Continue

I am new to blogging and would like to get readers to give my blog a try. I blog about my grandkids I am raising and the lessons they teach me (some i've learned the hard way). I also write humorous and family oriented essays and poems.

The other day, as I was once again trying to get my three-year-old son, Bennett, to fall asleep in his bed (by making the cardinal mistake of lying down with him), he began to throw a temper tantrum because he wanted me to put his closet light on for the nap.
“No,” I told him. “You don’t need the light. It’s daylight outside.”
“I want the yight!” he yelled.
“No!” I said.
“I want the yight!” he screamed louder.
“No!” I said, beginning to… Continue

Hours after his birth, my perfect 8 pound 11 ounce son turned tomato red and wailed in anguish. Try as I might, I couldn’t latch him onto my breast. What should have been a natural act was a disaster. I was already a failure as a mom, unable to comfort my starving, yowling newborn. Eventually I got the hang of it and was able to push my nipple into his mouth, but not until both of us had shed our share of tears.
Little did I know that wearing and frustrating first attempt at nursing… Continue

Did you ever feel like you are really really stupid and missing the point or that you are simply smarter than everyone else and it is so much more simple than they are making it seem? That is how I am feeling right now. I just don’t get it.
Most confusing to me, why would people be threatening to keep their children home from school because the president will be speaking to the kids about education?! I am stunned. He is our president, as was his predecessor. You don’t have to agree… Continue

All I can think is I know she is with my boys,they needed her
Bye Mom,I love… Continue

She is probably so sick of hearing “if it is meant for you, it will not go by you” and “maybe next time” and “please don’t give up”.
In my desperate attempt to bolster her broken heart…I try to think up all sorts of “you can get through this” and “things will start looking up” and “it will soon be your time” words and phrases.
I don’t think she believes me anymore.
And, honestly, I am starting to not believe me either.
My darling daughter, the blue… Continue

Yesterday, as I drove to pick up my five-year-old from school, I saw a large electronic sign that had been parked by the side of the road to his school - the kind of sign the city uses to announce road work. It read, "WE WILL MISS YOU JUAN." I wondered who Juan might be and why the city was using its resources to post a message like that. Maybe someone special in the public works department?
On the return trip… Continue

My sweet little girl isn’t as “sweet” as she was yesterday. I should have known when she got in the backseat at the car rider lane that something was up, but I was too distracted with some antics of her brother. Normally the routine conversation goes something like this, “So guys, how was your day?” Julia will always speak up first, “Well, Johnny had to pull a strip and Susie just can’t seem to be quiet and Mary had to change seats because she wouldn’t stop talking to Bobby. It was a good day… Continue

I started my blog in July. I seemed to get a lot of followers at once then it seemed to just stop. I even started doing giveaways and posting more but I seemed to have slowed down the amount of people following. Sometime I don't even get a comment left on posts I write. Am I doing something wrong or is my blog just not interesting? :-(
