We're fortunate to have my aunt's pool fairly close by. Munch loves it, of course, and is pretty comfortable in the water.
She's got the basics of swimming, without formal lessons (maybe next summer), but tends to bob up before she reaches her destination. For the heck of it, I decided to toss in some sinking submarines. She had a great time diving for them, and was so much more… Continue

I am so proud to work from home for a company that provides us with a benefit that is endorsed by the FBI and that is designed to protect our children. Did you know a child is reported missing every 40 seconds in the United States? Did you know that only 10% of families have samples of their kid's fingerprints & DNA?
Our company has a new program available to its Independent Business Owners that will help… Continue

It's P day, and we had a jam-packed day! We started off with our usual routine of wood pieces and writing practice
then we moved on to her alphabet sticker book, a gift from Grandma. I like it because she can match up stickers that begin with that letter- it gives her ideas for things to put on her letter collage. Today, we glued puzzle pieces onto the collage after… Continue

Never leave your cup of coffee unattended with a dog (especially when it's a 7lb puppy). Caffeine does not fare well with them.
You WILL run into an ex boyfriend, eventually. Just hope that it's not while you're at the supermarket. Also hope you're not wearing a baseball hat with your grey roots STILL showing, or in your "I just got my period and feel like a complete mess" clothing.
Make sure to hit "save" now and then if you are working on a project on your laptop. Especially when… Continue

Many of the movies that we see today are based on some excellent books. Sometimes a movie is not able to capture the true story as hard as they try. If you're really interested in learning more about the movies you watch then here's a quick list of movies based on books. Many people especially Harry Potter and Twilight fans read the books prior to watching the movies.
1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince / J. K. Rowling
2. Coraline / Neil Gaiman
3. Twilight Saga /… Continue

I would not be so quick to frequent a blog that only talked about how perfect the kids were, how well mom cooked from scratch, how clean and beautiful the house is, how unfrazzled she is at the end of the day…Sure, I like those stories, but if I have a bad day, or am making dinner from a box or cleaning the crayon from my entire floor, or changing the 3rd blowout of the day, or ready to pull my hair out for a variety of reasons, those posts just will NOT make me feel better. I need the kids in… Continue

I receieved my warning tonight and I thought I would pass it on to you.
August 2nd, 9pm is the kick-off to Shark Week.
There……you have it. I know I’m not alone in this Shark Week thing. I can’t possibly be, because the ratings are so high for the series.
Here is what the warning means in my household:
■There are no plans to be made that will have us home later than 8:30.
■There will be no sharing of the 60″ in the family room.
■There is no… Continue

For the past two months I had been toying with the idea of setting up my own Membership site
to teach other parents how to set up their own website/ blog or e-store. Am compiling all the information I have learned and experience this past two years since entering internet marketing.
It is still a site in progress and am aiming to launch the site by Mid August if… Continue

Having four children has made me realise a lot of things. It is amazing that on some levels when you have more than two children, any others that follow seem to hop on the bandwagon and you carry on living regardless.
I found going from one child to two children very hard, the fact that there was only a year and a day between them might have been a contributing factor. It was so hard trying to fit in another baby's needs into a day that was already full from baby number one. I… Continue

We're super busy around here! Especially during the summer. I'm noticing the older Easy gets the more outings we have planned. Everyday we have something. And as many Mom's know... outings with a toddler means a lot of preparation and snacks!
So when I came across the company Haute Lunch I was excited! They make coolers that look like purses! Not the basic, boring, and ugly cooler. Haute Lunch totes are so girly and they have many designs to choose from. These coolers are super cute… Continue

My guess is….that if you were born after 1970 you’ll pass right over this blog post, because you think she had something to do with manners. FYI, the manner lady is Emily Post. Thank you. (Emily taught me well).
If you Google “Erma Bombeck” (may she rest in peace), you’ll only get 50,000 results. AND if you’ve been a loyal blog reader here, you already know that google has 765,000,001 results for “blogs”. Clearly no one really knows who she is.
I did the googling for you… Continue

Today I woke up in a bit of an icky mood. Aside from the fact that I rose at 5:30 (not willingly) my freshly bathed dog rolled in crap and two giant zits had sprung up like weeds on my face sometime during the night. Fantastic. I thought people my age weren't supposed to get zits anymore.
With my less than wonderful disposition this morning came the question I ask myself once in a while "Why? Why? Why do I write this blog?" It started as a… Continue

I recently discovered Lori Hanson and her blog, Learn2Balance
, full of wonderfully insightful articles about eating disorders

I am new to blogging as you can clearly see by my very meager archive.
If you had asked me three weeks ago about blogging, I probably would have laughed at you . Who has time for sitting here and typing daily psychobabble when there is work, laundry, carpooling, house straightening, errands, homework, obligations and a shot at sleep to handle? And why would someone want to read about anything I have to say in the first place? To me, it’s up there with entering contests all day and… Continue
