Mr. Independent demands he blows his own bubbles now. Kind of sad really. Not that long ago he would beg for ME
to blow bubbles and they'd make him so happy. Now... "Nooo... Mommy!" "I have it!" "Mine bubbles." *Tear* READ MORE HERE...

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!
Thought I would share videos of my little guys. Posted on my blog are little clips
of their love notes & treats they hid around the house for me. It was so sweet! - http://techy-moms-blog.blogspot.com/2009/05/happy-mothers-day-bit-of-history.html

It's Monday people and as my favorite gay, Tim Gunn, says, "Make It Work!" I always have a hard time on Mondays getting going. Someone has a case of the Mondays! I am just coming off a usually fun or relaxing weekend and it's difficult to get moving and face the week. JT has gone back to work and I am going it alone with CE and our pooch, Teddy. I usually need a little boost of something, whether it's extra caffeine or something inspirational.

Kimberley Clayton Blaine, MA, MFT
This scenario is all too common. Recognize it? Is this your household? 5:30 hits, the kids are cranky, singing loudly, asking questions, pushing siblings, the kitchen is hot and steaming with chicken baking in the oven while you answer the phone and say, “I can’t hear you, I’m a mom.”
It’s no secret that moms have a hard time finding time for themselves, let alone… Continue

Firstly, I'd like to thank you all for the Mother's Day wishes - it was oh so grand! A weekend of fun and relaxation - and nothing went to plan! On Saturday I took Princess to a movie, Monsters vs Aliens, which was cute, and we had a little picnic - then off to Grandpa's she did go! J & I spent the evening in, watching movies and eating pizza, our absolute favourite food in the world.
Sunday, Princess with Grandpa and his kids at Wonderland, J at work, I had a glorious day to… Continue

Katrina Carefoot, Mabel BlogHer correspondent, from Fickle Feline, is guest blogging for the next two weeks while Julie recovers from the birth of her 6th baby - welcome Finian Aloysius!
I survived my first week back at work. I’m not going to lie, the mornings came early, the days were long, and most nights I fell into bed not long after my kids. But I made it, and I learned some important lessons along the way.
Ten Things I Learned My First Week Back At… Continue

I am crushed, empty, and saddened to write this post, but reality has come to where we have to say goodbye. Yesterday, I said goodbye to the love of my life for another six (or so) months as he heads back to Afghanistan to complete his mission. It took everything in me yesterday not to cry, but that quickly shattered as I held him tightly knowing that I would not embrace his hug again for what seems like eternity. It was even harder to see him say goodbye to our son who he loves more then… Continue

It's mothers day. I woke up early at about 7am, and couldn't go back to sleep. Jude woke up right after me so I fed him, and then we lay in bed while he stared at me and smiled. It was a nice beginning to the day. Jude, and I stayed up together for about two hours while Mike slept......yeah yeah he slept on mothers day...ha. It's okay though because I was awake anyway, and really enjoyed my quiet time with Jude. He was very smiley today, and was trying to communicate with me. If I placed him… Continue

I had the privilege of listening to (and even speaking briefly with) Mark Blumenthal, the founder and Executive Director of the American Botanical Council. Mr. Blumenthal reviewed the recent clinical and epidemiological research regarding the health benefits of tea.
It is truly staggering, the increasing amount of research being devoted to the connection between tea drinking and good health. And it is difficult to ignore the daily reports about tea’s potential. Of course, as Mr.… Continue

Well, I gave birth to my lastest addition, Sarah Danielle, on Sat May 2nd. She weighed 6lbs, 12ozs and was 19 inches long. Now, I am just learning to balance my day with both her and my four year old, Sophia. It's going to be interesting, but I have faith that I will get it down soon!
I hope that everyone had a great Mother's Day!
This picture was taken in the hospital, not even 24 hours after her birth, she is such a great… Continue

Ok so after endless attempts I have finally made it on here and am super excited! Yeah me! I must first start by telling everyone that I am so not computer savvy at all! Which you probably figured out by my "endless attempts" words previously used. I am very new at all of this and I sure it will take time for me to figure it out but I will get there, some day! Hopefully before society is done with blogging and onto something else.
I will mainly be blogging about life's events that are… Continue

Any other mamas out there with the Monday morning blues? Maybe it's the "let down" after Mother's Day. Who knows. I know I've got 'em bad enough that my daily post today on ChitChatMom
was about wanting to crawl back in bed and pull up the covers.
If you've got those Monday morning blues... leave me a comment and tell me what your excuse is.
