I was originally going to write a post entitled A Change is in the Air, about Elliott and how well she is doing with her RAD therapy. We have spent the last 18 months meeting with a therapist, changing the way we parent, turning… Continue

What is your favorite place to go for a playdate? Thanks to a recent bargain, the science and history museum is quickly becoming one of our favorite places to go. I quickly scooped up the museum's Groupon deal a few months ago for an annual family membership for just $30.
Considering one adult admission is $10 - this was a huge savings. We've already gotten our money's worth in just… Continue

For several months I had a very hard time posting anything to my blog. I was in a low place with postpartum depression and everything I did or didn't do brought me down lower.
So I decided to do something about it! I decided that I would work on a big, huge project...and that would be to blog every day for a year.
And that is how #blog365 was born. Fairly simple idea, with a huge amount of work. I started just over 2 weeks ago and am having a great time doing… Continue

"Hey, that’s a nice baseball bat you have there” the guy who I thought worked at the store told me. “Yeah, it’s for my son. He’s playing t-ball and needs to practice” I said, thinking I was just participating in friendly store-customer banter.…

Probably one of the most common reasons someone wouldn’t buy a gift card
is the impersonality of it. A gift card can seem impersonal if you don’t put a personal touch to it of course.
Here are a few ideas of how to make a gift card more personal:
If you are determined to not put a lot of time into the gift, put the gift card inside a funny, personalized greeting card. Write a… Continue

Not sure what to buy your out of town friends? When you’re Christmas shopping for friends and family who live out of state, the biggest issue can be shipping costs, especially if you buy large toys for the kids. And if you’re sending several gifts for the whole family, well the shipping costs can break the bank. Instead, why not give gift cards!
The beauty of a gift card is it’s always the right size, the perfect color… Continue

I love the look of little terrariums in old jars and bottles but I've not owned or made one before.
Since I have lots of vintage bottles and the art box I've been working on seemed to be going nowhere and the kids went to lunch with grandma, I thought I would give it a shot. But... http://hushmama.com/2010/10/19/light-bulb-terrarium/

Today, I hang my head in shame. Attempting to keep the tears at bay & failing dismally, I contemplate ending it all & making that leap over the Brink Of Insanity. Surely I deserve such a fate, throwing myself in to the abyss, after a day that finally saw my children turn on me…nearly in unison, almost as one, declaring me the “worst Mommy ever!”. And what was it that brought… Continue

Last week ended on a tense note, so Ben and I snuck out for a quick drink and a few moments alone on Saturday night. We deserved this time together. Actually, if we’re going to be fair about it, we deserved a trip to Europe but I’m grateful for anytime alone.
We didn’t go anywhere fancy. Still, I wanted to take it up a notch so I wore this necklace, which had belonged to my Granny Bea.… Continue

Stay or go? Do this or do that? Don't do it or maybe do it.
I'm starting to realize that being confused is a normal part of the process of life!
My girls and I like to use the word 'confuzzled'. You know what I mean though. Those times when you're standing at an intersection in your life and you need to make a decision. Some of us, like myself, tend to come back around to the same intersections more than once. Either way...a choice has to be made.
We have to… Continue

Today I could write about the amazing fall colors (which I do love), or the smell of burning leaves and how they are life's ultimate aphrodisiac. I could write about the changing scenery and weather, and how it's a perfect analogy for life. I could weave in the poetic fabric of our shifting world with everyday life… Continue

I was not going to blog on this topic. I was not. It has nothing to do with my family, my kids, or motherhood.
I wasn't. Really.
And then I decided to record the whole 6 or 7 episode mess and now, well now, I have a few thoughts that I must get on paper, lest they well up in me, cause indigestion, and possibly an ulcer.
No one wants that.
Even though I know the possibility of losing cherished readers is high, especially in Utah, and the backlash for… Continue

I receive many emails like most of you do. Funny stories, pictures of babies with puppies, breast cancer awareness, political and personal accounts that somewhere along the line most of us can relate to. There is one email that has disturbed my foundation more than any sent to me. So much so, that it convicts me almost on a daily basis.
