I live in a SUPER hot and muggy climate.... 11 months out of the year. One Christmas it snowed, the next it was 80 degrees. Living in South Texas, I do not know what to do with all of the changes. Most people have a box of winter clothes and a box of summer clothes. I have never had the luxury of packing away the flip flops...
We can wake up to a 45 degree cold front, but by bedtime it is back up to 80 degrees. So, walking into Dillard in September and the ONLY clothes on the rack… Continue

I'm sorry if it seems I suddenly dropped from here...I haven't. I've been so busy trying to keep up with all the mom's blogs and plus my own. Plus have to copy/paste here when it would be easier if people can just go to my blog and read it.
I'm here...just very tired and have not been well lately. Please be patient. I also am the caregiver of my 20 year old son with a terminal illness. That alone is a strain and under an extreme pressure & exhausation!

My youngest is almost 2. She's been in the "terrible twos" for about a year already, with no signs of stopping. You'd think after successfully rearing 3 other children past the ripe old age of two, I'd be well prepared for the antics of an almost-two-year-old. Nope! This child has a knack for leaving a path of destruction in her wake everywhere she goes. How a two year old can drag a large, heavy, wooden dining room chair across the floor and into the kitchen, climb up onto it and open the… Continue

Young mothers often tell me how lucky I am that three of my children are grown. “Now you don’t have to stress about them anymore,” they say. “No more keeping track of their whereabouts. No more fretting over what they eat. No more worrying about their decisions.”
These well-intentioned women are surprised when I inform them that my worries are bigger. Mothers don’t stop being mothers just because their children grow up.
I still keep track of my progeny.… Continue

I have two Blogs ... I use to have more, a photography one, pregnancy one... blah blah - deleted them. I also had started another blog at one time, never could figure out how to delete that one, couldn't find it if I tried. LOL...
But then there is the blog I have now, or my blogs I should say.
A PAGE IN MY BOOK
.... is my blog. For me. To share what I want, pieces of my life, things I like, talk about TV shows,… Continue

With Mothers day fast approaching, I was wondering what all the other Mom's in blogoland are doing for Mothers day or are having done for them or what they are doing for their mother's? Any ideas, suggestions or even rants and raves over what's not being done, curious mind with curious questions. I most likely will get together with my friend whom I see once a year on Mothers day since neither one of our hubbys do anything for us (sigh) so we get… Continue

Day to day living brings about many unique challenges new and old, as well as unique rewards. It is very important to me that my children are able to appreciate their dual heritages. Being the mother of biracial children adds a dimension to parenting those mothers of “monoracial” children do not share. Preparing ones’ child to be confident about their biraciality in a society that does not always recognize or welcome them is the challenge that all mothers of biracial children face.

My blog is under construction today so please bear with me. You will see changes going on throughout the morning.
Anyway, it was an eventful weekend. Friday night Emily, and I sat making a basket full of purple and blue ribbons attached to childhood stroke information sheets. Emily was very proud of all the ribbons once we had completed them, and she seemed very geared up to spread the message. Saturday Em and I woke up at 7:30 to walk the neighborhood, and hand ribbons for… Continue

Katrina Carefoot, Mabel BlogHer correspondent, from Fickle Feline, is guest blogging for the next two weeks while Julie recovers from the birth of her 6th baby - welcome Finian Aloysius!
Blink. Is it over already?
After spending the past year on maternity leave with baby #2, I'm heading back to the corporate world tomorrow and shedding the mommy uniform (at least between the hours of 9 and 5). To be honest, I haven't let myself think too much about the fact that I'm going… Continue

For as long as I can remember, I have always dreamed of living in a foreign city - foreign to me, and not necessarily of a different language. First I have dreamed of 'making it' in New York City, on the little island called Manhattan that never slept. Then it was the dream of living in Paris, eating macarons, drinking lattes, and writing by a little window whose view showed off the Eiffel Tower. After visiting Amsterdam I dreamed of living in a narrow little first-floor flat, minimal in… Continue

As it’s getting closer to Mother’s Day I am doing a lot of thinking about motherhood. Just as with the stages of pregnancy, it changes and shifts as we move through each new stage and phase of our fetus/infant/toddler/child/tween/teenager… ah heck, baby’s life.
I have recently come across two books on UrbanBaby.com that echo my own parenting style: Rattled! by Christine Coppa and Bad Mother by Ayelet Waldman. They are both written by witty, honest women who openly share the full… Continue

Mamas... I've got a serious question on my mind. Can I use a rocker recliner instead of a traditional rocking chair in the baby girl's nursery? Check out my new post at ChitChatMom.com
and let me know what you think?!

We have had a very lazy Sunday, and it's been great. I say lazy, but we were up early to feed Jude, I went and fed my cousins dogs, made lunch, did dishes, and washed clothes. The reason today still classifies as lazy is because I took a nap in the middle of the day, which was greatness! Jude is still having some small spasms which results in twitches, and rapid eye movement. It's concerning, but he seems to ride through the seizure activity okay. I learned that his doctor appt had to be… Continue

After purchasing a stroller and having a not-so-successful jaunt to the mall
with it, I decided maybe Lily would enjoy taking it outside on a walk. It was a beautiful spring day. The weather had finally warmed up and there was no rain in sight. People were outside everywhere. Cars had their music blasting, windows rolled down.
It was the kind of day where a cute girl might just get hollered at by a group… Continue
