My third child, & second daughter, is turning seven today. As she rejoices in being one step closer to getting out from under me, & having the ability to wear, do, say whatever she wants, I will be rejoicing in all she brings to my heart & my life. You are the burst of fresh air, the whirlwind of energy, the fierce, strong, independent child. You have never needed me the way… Continue

It happens to us all from time to time. We find ourselves engulfed in negativity. Negativity is soo incredibly bad for us. We all want to reach a higher ground with supporters not naysayers. No one wants to have their dreams shot down, their goals shattered or just pooooed on.... so I located a wonderful new spot for myself called Mom bloggers Club. I'm excited about the 3 friends I've just met and look forward to getting to know each of them.
For me Mom Bloggers is my fresh new start.… Continue

Yesterday as I opened the freezer, bags of bread butts (that’s what we call the bread ends at our house) slid out. I’d been avoiding the quick-but-nevertheless-annoying re-organization of the freezer.
We’ve been eating lots of peanut butter and jellys here, whittling down the homemade jam supply from last summer. And, as I’ve never had an appreciation for the ends… Continue

Let’s begin here: I originally misspelled the word ‘soccer’ in this post's title.
Last night Ben informed me that Mexico had beat France in the World Cup and therefore we were obligated to drink tequila. I obliged. I felt that this was the least I could do for the country of which I called ‘home’ for six months. What can I say? I’m a giver.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a soccer fan, nor do I understand the significance of Mexico’s win yesterday. [O.K. now,… Continue

Did you hear that?? That was the sound of me jumping on the blogging bandwagon. I've thought about blogging for a while but wasn't sure I had too much to say that was of interest and was convinced the only person that would read it was my best friend..and Im ok with that. If someone other than friends or family decides Im worthy of a bookmark then I'll be thrilled but in the meantime Ill just introduce myself to those that are reading even though they know me already.

Personally, I have always believed I was ready for motherhood. I was ready to be selfless, sleepless and hot-body-less long before I actually had my daughter. Every now and then, though, I catch myself doing something and thinking " I really never thought I'd do that":
So here are some of my cringe-worthy, cute (?) & normal(??)…

The got2b giveaway already has 2 entries. Excellent! I'm not anticipating a large entry number since it's my first giveaway so the chance of winning one of the prizes should be pretty good! :)
So, I "should" have done this a couple of days ago but I was so behind with the giveaway I didn't get a chance to yet. If you all care to look on the left sidebar, I have a new category because I was given TWO awards!… Continue

When I was expecting my first child, I was secretly hoping for a girl. I still would have loved my son, if I had had a boy, but deep down inside, I really wanted a girl. When she was born, I couldn't be happier.
When I was expecting my second child, again I was hoping for a girl. I know it might seem more obvious to want to have a boy, since I already had a girl, but I just thought it would be great to have two little girls.
I had never had a sister,… Continue

There are so many ways to increase your traffic. It can be confusing and overwhelming. I've found it works better when you pick one traffic strategy and focus on it seriously for a while, instead of trying to do a little bit of everything all at the same time.
One of my mentors says "When you put in unfocused effort you get unfocused results" It's the same, if you put in halfhearted, cursory effort you get the same kind of results.
If you put in consistent, wholehearted… Continue

Many of my friends have children and I have heard all the stories about their water breaking, labor pains and the mad dash to the hospital. They go on to tell me in detail how dilated they were and how they weren’t supposed to push. Then through their emotional tears they tell me about the final push and how this little miracle of life… Continue

Yep, it’s @$#*%! Friday again…where DOES the time go??!! And even though you know that I know that you know that I know that right about here is where I’ll throw some lame ass excuse about how crazy busy my week has been, I’ll say it anyways, even though it goes without saying by now, because you know that I know that you know that I know that I am ALWAYS crazy busy…thus the name… Continue

If you’ve paid any attention to my recent ramblings you’ll know a) I'm crazy and b) I’m reluctantly getting ready for number one son’s high school graduation. When I’m tense, frustrated or angry, it often helps me if I clean, so the past few days have been full of cleaning! Actual party prep began back in the spring. Here is what I’ve done in the past few months in anticipation of this… Continue

Last night, after the kids were in bed, I got on Twitter
and frittered away a good hour, or so. While I was there, I decided to check-out my followers’ profile pages. [And if you’re not on Twitter, that last sentence probably made about as much sense as if I told you that I keep a pair of tube socks in the glove compartment of my car just in case my hands get cold.] Anyway, I came across one of my ‘anonymous’ followers and thought it would be fun… Continue
