I woke up earlier to a Billy Joel song-Paino Man
. I don't know where it came from but it is one of my Billy Joel 's favorite songs. Like his other songs, this one is a catchy song.
Now I'm listening to his CD of all his favorites. He is one of my favorite artists.
It is interesting how a lot of the music out there influence us. Not just how the song has been sung, but how most of the lyrics we can relate to.… Continue

My son is 23 months old and we started potty training months back (around 18 months). He was on the younger side, but was showing signs of being ready that I didn't want to ignore. He started off being very interested in his potty, and would simply sit and read a book while I wondered and waited. Most of the time he would go pee or poop. We'd get so excited! We'd scream, jump, and praise him! Because he was younger, I didn't force it. Nothing like a training exercise; just time to time I'd try… Continue

Today was D-Day. The day I begin the process of reclaiming my body from the depths of postpartum icky-ness. The day I stop nursing. If you don't want to read about breastfeeding and/or all the stuff that goes with it, please go to another blog now. That's right, move along, nothing to see here. In fact, here's one for you: Click here. There, I gave you one for free. Now, go! Away with you!
*Sigh* There were moments over the past year when I cursed breastfeeding. When Zeke would push… Continue

Sometimes there are days like we had this weekend: everything is perfect. We go for walks, we play, we read books together, we spend time together as a family. On Saturday, Josh and I even took Zeke to the pool for the first time, and he LOVED it! Here is a picture of the sheer delight:
Sunday was great, too. Josh preached, Zeke and I went out to get lunch for him, and we all had a relaxing afternoon. Monday? Also pretty good. Zeke skips his nap on Mondays so I can teach my class at the… Continue

Tomorrow, he will be a year old! I remember where I was a year ago today--at a friend's house playing games, I mean OWNING the guys at "Gimme 5," eating dessert, and experiencing the WORST headaches I'd ever had in my life. All the while praying that the hospital would have room for me in the morning. Turns out that the hospital did NOT have room, but the headaches were eventually enough to get me admitted and have the baby just 6 short hours after.
I was NOT ready to be a mom, but… Continue

I gotta tell you. I've been addicted to something (Coke Zero, bargains....) and I've worked with those who are addicted to stuff. Everyone is addicted to something.
According to a story that just ran on CNN, there are no statistics on "Facebook addiction" .
Social media addiction, as of now, isn't an actual medical diagnosis.
According to CNN, you know you're a Facebook addict when
1. You lose sleep over Facebook
2. You spend more than an… Continue

I just looked around at some other moms blogs and it looks like I have a lot of learning to do, to make my blog SNAZZY! HA!
I am pretty much slow to doing things and learning all the tricks! If you all have any suggestions that would be great!

"What R U Waiting 4 ?", is my question of the day for you.
I have contact with a lot of people on a daily basis and one thing that I have noticed a lot in the conversations taking place are phrases like, " I should...." or " I want to but..." or even " I can't get around to ...".
I thought a lot about it and I must say I do understand that everyone has a lot on their plate, I know I do, but what I don't understand is how we can put our own personal wishes, joys, and… Continue

I am breastfeeding a 2 ½-year-old toddler, and I have no problem doing it in public. In fact, I am so proud and glad that I am still breastfeeding that I have a breastfeeding counter on the bottom of my blog page! You would expect strangers to give me looks, but I actually have to justify my choice to friends and family more and more lately.
Why do I still breastfeed? Because Landon still wants to and asks for it, I love the bond we have through it and the convenience — and most… Continue

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, written, expressed my inner… I don’t know what, especially after my social media meltdown. You know, the meltdown I mentioned in my last video blog, but I never went into why and what happened. Not sure if I still wanna go there. Lemme just blog away and see what happens. I’ll try to stay focused even though my 10 year old continues to keep interrupting me every 10 seconds (literally) recapping her absolute faaaavorite book of the week. I may sound selfish,… Continue

First, let me begin to say that my husband has changed his share of diapers. My only problem is his nose picks and chooses when it works. My husband can smell when our daughter is wet, but poop doesn't seem to register with him. In fact, this happened again only yesterday. He was playing with her for a bit and suddenly asked me to hold her for a sec. When I came over to get her, I instantly smelled the poo. I told him she had pooped and his response, "What! I didn't smell a thing." It is… Continue

It's amazing how exponentially busier we get every year! There are so many ways to indiviually keep track of ourselves with palm pilots, blackberries, planners, iphones, etc... There are home organization systems for our junk, our storage areas, and everything in between. And there are these expensive and convoluted family organization systems that all these professional planners love to peddle to us through their own personal services and through the mass media of magazines and "talk… Continue

I must admit I totally and completely love Thursdays. Why? 'Cuz they're just one day away from Friday and nothing is better than Friday... except for Saturday. As a preggers mama I must admit I live for my weekends. I typically try to get in a prenatal yoga class on Saturday mornings to start my weekend off right and then meet up with a girlfriend or two for a lazy Saturday lunch and maybe even a movie. Sundays are "Baby Sundays" in my house (check my blog to find out just what a Baby Sunday… Continue

In 2009 is it possible to live on 1 income? My son is now 13 and we do want another child, but once I have another child will I be able to stay home? Or is is back to work after 3 months? I ask myself this question every month. How much money does it take to run our house hold? We live in a country where people do live on one income and it works for them, but can this work for everyone? What will I need to give up and go without? Can I live without certain things; such as getting my hair done… Continue

How to foster cultural awareness at a young age
We learn a lot from our parents—including the things we want to do differently in raising our own children. There are many things my parents have instilled in me for which I now intend to pass along to the next generation, like the pleasure of keeping family recipes alive, a love for all things outdoors, not to mention an ear for great music like The Stones and Dylan (yes, I am a recovering flower child). However, there are things I aim… Continue
