Munch got a birthday check from her very generous grandparents recently. Rather than just depositing it for her, I wanted her to understand and experience the process of saving it. So off we went to our bank where Munch told the teller that she had a "posit". The teller asked if she'd like to endorse the check, so Munch carefully wrote her name on the back. I decided that she could have $15 dollars of it to go shopping with, so the teller gathered up fifteen dollar bills and counted them out… Continue

As our pregnancy nears the end, our Friday nights are no longer our usual Friday nights. Friday night has always been (like many couples) a night to go out to dinner and spend the evening around the town as a way to unwind from the…
My 4 year old daughter has wanted to be a "movie star" since she saw
Eloise goes to Hollywood. Not that I think she really knows what that
means or what it entails but I have convinced myself that I will never
be the shatterer of hopes and dreams when it comes to my girls. If they
want to do it or be it, I'm going… Continue
I had an opportunity to meet Tricia at a business meeting in Dallas last month.
She is a smart lady!
It was great to meet and chat with, she is helping people develop their own businesses.
It was an honor to sow into her business and her life with My Wired Style!
It is wonderful to have lovely messages like this.
So to all of you who sow into someone else's life and business too....Thank You!
Welcome to the first Mom's in Boyland blog! I started this to document my quest for conceiving a child that does not have a penis, namely a beautiful baby girl. Let me give you some background. I'm 28 years old and have been with my wonderful husband , Brian, for 5 1/2 years. Together we have two wonderful boys; Bryson who will be 4 in January, and Tyler who will be 11 in January. I had Tyler when I was 17 with my high school boyfriend, Tom. Tyler spends a lot of…
With all of the excitement and anticipation of the baby coming, it can really start to be stressful. I think we have everything ready for his arrival. Our hospital bags are packed, the car seats are installed in both cars, the nursery is done, the baby monitor is running and all the toys are put…
It’s been about a week that we dramatically changed things here in the Bleasdale kitchen. After reading Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet and watching the movie Food Inc., my husband decided that he wants to radically change his eating habits to hopefully get rid of the pain he has been in for months.
In today's difficult economic times, saving money has become a necessary way of life. Parents (and adults) are packing their lunch everyday to help reduce extra food expenses. For parents of multiples, packing lunches means also having to buy more supplies, which is costly. A creative and efficient way to transport lunches is using the Easylunchbox system.
The Easylunchbox system has been created by mother of three and actress Kelly Lester.…
Today is World Cancer Day. This is a topic near to my heart. A year ago, my mother checked in to the hospital due to difficulty breathing, which she had been living with for weeks thinking it was some kind of a cold. After draining 2.5 liters of fluid from in and around her lungs, doctors reported that she’d almost died of a pulmonary embolism, caused by something yet more sinister – late-stage ovarian cancer.…
