At this point in my parenting career, I'm pretty good at taking others' opinions in stride. Think cloth diapers and home schooling are the way to go? Fine. Neither are for me, but who cares?
But every so often, I kick myself for not addressing a remark more clearly (or at all). So, behind the shield of the Internet, consider exhibit A...
What? You shower with your son? Gross.
As a person with generous sebaceous glands and kids that wake before dawn, I was… Continue

I am so excited to tell you that the first official Give-Away on Penelope's Pitstop is from Sweaty Bands. I absolutely love my Sweaty Bands and blogged about them a few weeks ago. On top of being a stylish and CUTE headband, the folks at Sweaty Bands are so nice and very much value good customer service. They are generously offering 2 Sweaty Bands to 2 Penelope's Pitstop winners! Once you fall in love with these, you will find that they are wonderful gifts. I have already given them as gifts to… Continue

It has been a crazy few months here at Dillon. We started out with Vietnam Heritage Weekend and continued the craziness with India Camp, China Camp and Korea Camp. We had more than 200 kids at China Heritage Camp this year and almost as many at Korea Heritage Camp. Both China and Korea camps were preceded by Discovery Days for teenage adoptees. Teens and staff spent a couple of night at Bridlecreek (a lodge and campsite north of Tulsa) doing everything from riding horses to delving into the… Continue

This is the number one issue that I hear from moms in particular. You might think that you don't have time to workout and eat property, but you CAN find the time. Frankly, you MUST find the time for yourself! If you are not healthy and fit, your family can't count on you. Your work productivity will decrease, and you won't feel good about… Continue

So just when I think I don't have to talk about poop anymore.
I am sorry. I guess it's just that season of life; poop has anchored itself into every corner of our life, we can't wash it out, get rid of the smell, make it go away...
My kids of course learned to poop in the toilet, think the word poop is funny when made into a constipated word...wait, I mean compound word, like poophead, poopyhead, and poo-poohead...
But now they use poop as a way… Continue

I’m a huge fan of the IPhone. I’ve unofficially, officially declared it the phone of the ifevolution.com blog. The phone has about 15,000 downloadable applications to date.
There’s a new one though, that I thought would be worth downloading just because it’s so relevant to the safety of children.
The Offender Locator.
According to the Washington Post:
The app allows you to see a list of offenders based on your current location (using the iPhone’s… Continue

Jessica is critical of her mom for buying her way into a greener lifestyle. But I think any attempt to ditch conspicuous consumerism is better for our kids' future, whether a person arrives there from wealth or not. And who bankrolled Jessica's education to allow her to choose her profession? And why did she feel unloved?

To me at least!
If you love stuffed baked potatos with bacon and cheese on it, you’ll love this one.This salad is great chilled for a barbeque or while still warm as a side dish.
Not the healthiest thing in the world, especially since I use more of the artery clogging ingredients, but it really is awesome!

It is the first full week of the school holidays and i had the girls to myself today. Hubby sleeps most of the day because he works overnight Sunday night so it is up to me to entertain the brood!
Pudding and 21month old are teething at the mo, pudding is getting her top two teeth and 21month old is getting her last set of molars which is making them both very grizzly and grumpy.
I decided that i needed a few things from the shops so i packed them all in the car and set… Continue

Let me take you back, way back to last Friday (I know, if this day wasn't burned into my memory I don't think I'd remember that far back!) Anyway I had decided that I would meet my best… Continue

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
