The latest entry in the ‘Real Housewives of . . . ‘ series is going to be set in New Jersey, where for a change of pace (not) we’ll get to watch rich, tacky, shallow women shop for size 0 designer clothes and fret about important priorities like redecorating their powder rooms and getting a last-minute Botox appointment. This time I guess the difference will be even tackier accents and the vague suggestion of mafia ties, but overall it’s the same excuse for ‘real’ real housewives to snigger and… Continue

There is no doubt my toddler is a girl. She dresses up with outfits, costumes, fake jewelry, hand bags, tiaras and purses galore. You'll even find her stepping into my husband's combat boots, too. Whatever she can get her hands on, it's on her in some costume-like fashion.
I had no idea how addicted to shoes she was until we were given a pair to try, Simple® Shoes called the Doodle in pink. She slept in them she loves them so much.
Simple® Shoes is an eco-friendly company… Continue

My poor yard has never been taken care of the way I wish I could- both time, energy, and know-how (wait, that's three things...) are obstacles to the lovely garden paradise I envision. Things REALLY went downhill after Munch was born though. I killed most of my potted dwarf citrus trees and some of my favorite fuschias. I guess anything that has survived, or unbelievably… Continue

It seems like it has been forever since I have been here! Life just sometimes takes over, and this is usually true during the good seasons for me.

I have been working into the wee hours of the nights lately, to bring you updates and specials at Diamond M Sales
, our Western and Native American Gift shop. I have also… Continue

Is anxiously awaiting the arrival of my son, who is 3, who just went to his first "Movie" in a big movie theatre with his gramma and big sister. I love how in AWE kids are and excited they are to do these things. I wish we could bottle it up!!! I think its one of the best things about kids is getting to see things for the first time again through their eyes. IT IS SO FUN!! Haven't got a phone call yet to come pick him up, so he must be enjoying it!! Weird how quiet the house is when both of… Continue

Many of us have discovered that children need time alone with their parents without their siblings vying for attention. Call me overly sensitive or a softy but I have yet to have a day or night out with just one child, other than on Outdoor Ed trips. As soon as I mention the idea I am met with tears and accusatory words, like “abandonment”, are spewed in my direction.
After a recent unexpected day alone with Brevitt, I am convinced that children need this time with their parents,… Continue

My firstborn has a gift of gab that regularly makes me smile, shake my head, or laugh out loud and/or temporarily lose control of bodily functions. But on the other side of all those comical quips are the occasional words that break my heart.
A few days ago, as I was administering morning milk and diaper changes and bleary-eyed snuggles as usual, both toddlers tugging on me and grappling for a prime lap spot, Gunnar firmly grabbed my knee, looked me in the eye, and said, "I want… Continue

Do you ever feel as a stay at home mom that your in a rut?? That you are living this life 24/7, 365 days of the year??

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE MY KIDS, but you know now that I am done having kids and we are constantly getting less needed, I start realizing there are more things that I want to do!!

Today's letter was O. Munch already knows how to make them with wood pieces, so she got started on that while I finished preparing our other activities. I taught her to write the letter and say its sound, as is our usual routine. Today's letter collage had us brainstorming words that begin with O and gluing spots of oatmeal-
Our craft was an adorable paper owl- you can get… Continue

Something happened yesterday that's bothering me and I just had to get it out.
Yesterday morning J-Man had his yearly physical. His regular pediatrician was booked up so we had to see a newer doctor in the practice. I really like our regular doctor and I admit I wasn't thrilled about going to a different one but I tried to keep an open mind going in.
It started out well enough with the… Continue

My friend called me with the name of a man who prescribed estrogen patches and I called him immediately to set up an appointment and investigate. Could it be that there was a cure for my Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde monthly syndrome? I had been searching long and hard for something…anything, that I could take to keep me sane and normal through that one week of hell every month.
His office was located directly next to my yoga studio and so I stopped by after my class. I walked in soaked… Continue
