Dear Mom Bloggers,
be aware of SCAMS
. I just received a friend request in my MBC mail box regarding a large sum of money that I could make if I would only send them money for shipping and handling.
I joined this site so that I may develop my Mommy Networking Skills and learn from others that are trying to help other Mommy's. I choose not to post the language that this individual used but if you receive an offer, as such, in your inbox, PLEASE

Hope everyone is having a great first few days back at school. Those of us in Tulsa started yesterday or today, but I hear that some schools aren't starting until September.
We are finishing up our 37th birthday celebration this week and have had several people decide to celebrate with Dillon by supporting our humanitarian aid program, orphanCare. We're very excited about the orphanCare program right now, because we are now in 15 countries and on almost every continent and have a great… Continue

Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs you'll ever have. While raising competent, responsible individuals capable of making sound decisions is every parents goal, creating a balance of nurture with freedom can be a difficult balance for a parent to achieve. In my opinion, being a good parent means providing a consistent framework of guidance and nurture while letting go of a little control so your child can confidently learn how to make good choices independently. Someone once told me, a… Continue

I’m heavily involved in my town’s football program. My son is in the PeeWee division, going into 4th grade. Tonight was the first night of sizing kids for equipment. My son came with me.
■When he wanted to goof around playing football (no equipment on) with kids 3 and 4 years older than him, I shut my mouth.
■When I saw him “guarding” a kid forty pounds larger that him, I shut my mouth.
■When I saw him get tossed by another kid who was 6 inches… Continue

Simplifying your life can be very overwhelming. Kind of ironic that while making an effort to simplify you may be overwhelmed. You can’t simplify your life overnight. You can’t do it all at once. You must take small steps and work toward a goal. What is that goal? How do I know if I live a “simple” life you ask? I would venture to say that all of us (myself included) could simplify our lives. My idea of living a more simple life may be different from yours which is what makes us individuals.… Continue

I make this recipe with sea bass, but it can also be made with salmon or halibut. It is delicious, INCREDIBLY easy and a crowd pleaser. I serve it with an heirloom salad. Both recipes here

Do you even know what it’s like to let everything go, not care and worry about responsibilities anymore? Sometimes, when you take a good look at your life, do you sit there and wonder how amazing it would be if you could be a kid all over again? Kids have the best lives ever! They need to know that and I tell my kids all the time - that they need to be carefree and not stress out about minor things.
One of my kids refused to go barefoot and sit down on the grass while licking his… Continue

WARNING: Blush Alert..
The following may make you blush. I will admit that this probably is not something I would have written without having been provoked. However, when author or the book, "Churched", Matthew Paul Turner, requested articles from Christians about teaching your children about sex, to promote his new book, "What You Didn't Learn From Your Parents About Sex". I couldn't resist an attempt to ride his coat tails into the land of post modern literature. Now that it's… Continue

Read this blog to the tune of All She Wants to Do is Dance

I'm roasting tomatillos, turning on the grill
and they want to eat is junk, junk, junk
Mommies been mommies, will be mommies still
and all kids want to eat is junk
Tired parents walking 'round with sleep in their eyes
and all the kids are eating junk, junk, junk
Coffee by the potful is speed in disguise
and all the kids will eat is
all the kids will eat is… Continue

After having 2 kids in the space of 3 years, my body isn't the temple it used to be. I have always been one of those lucky people with a metabolism like a bullet train however I've noticed since having my little angels that it is less on time and more delays expected.

Gals do your sons play football? If they do, I am sure can relate. As a mom it is beyond scary! Yesterday was the first day my son put on pads and began hitting and I needed a drink BIG TIME! Full… Continue

Inspired by a past episode of J&K Plus 8, where Kate takes the little kids to do some painting, I picked up a few canvases at the beginning of summer. Munch planned the main colors and I added another complementary one or two as she painted. Here are the results-…

My husband went out of town for a few days. Yesterday evening we had a bad storm that passed through and it scared me enough to take the kids in the basement! It took me a while to calm down so I could sleep. I hate when I freak myself out!

1963 through 2008, me to my mom:
Very funny mom
2009 through ?, my son to me:
Very LOLish mom
In case you are not familiar with the term “LOL” (besides asking “where have you been?”), here is the definition from the Urban Dictionary:
It’s original definition was “Laughing out loud” (also written occasionally as “Lots of Laughs”), used as a brief acronym to denote great amusement in chat conversations.
Now, it… Continue

I thought I could do it. I thought I could take all the children of the neighborhood, and their friends too, and give them a fun, safe place to be this summer. It turns out that takes more inner strength than I possess. At least day-after-day.
I was able to get away for 2 whole nights last weekend. I had play-dates/sleep-overs arranged for both our girls, and our dog too. While away I received calls about behavior, along with "what should I do?" queries. Hmmm... I wasn't feeling so… Continue

My cousin just had her first baby, an adorable girl named Claire Maeve.
It was discovered at an early ultra-sound that the baby was going to have a cleft lip. Although minor on the scale of things that can go wrong, it is still news that parents need to digest. The mama and papa (to-be) were amazing - they digested the news quickly, did their research, met with professionals and spent the rest of the pregnancy excitedly anticipating the… Continue
