We will be holding a vendor party! It's called Work At Home Mom's That party!
Now, don't we all like it when everyone chips in and buys from us? Buying from a work at home mom is better then buying corporate... like those BIG huge companies where the owner is filthy rich... well lets change it up a little, lets help work at home moms STAY HOME WITH THEIR CHILDREN!
We want our children's futures to be bright and great, right? So why not start now and help a work at home mom STAY at… Continue

My morning started out in the same fashion. I open my eyes to two little people demanding everything under the sun. My bladder is about to bust and I shew the kids away before I really regret getting out of bed. Thank GOD I made it in the bathroom! I shut the door behind me as it pushes the kids on the other side who are trying to get in with me. The door slams and the kids have their cue to cry and whine. I turn my mom ears off to the noise and wonder if I have any coffee made.

Since I started spending time in the 'blogosphere' my husband has noticed a change in our checking account. The change is that there is a little more "change" in it.
Before I began writing my little stories, this was a typical family morning routine: wake-up to the alarm, make coffee, get my girls up, make breakfast, get everyone dressed, drive to school THEN go browse at Target, or Kohl's, or Michael's. You get the picture. There would always be a little something that caught my… Continue

I have a talent that I really didn’t pay much attention to until recently.
I can catch all kinds of stuff with my cleavage. No, seriously!

The Internet is one of the greatest educational tools a mom has if it's used right. Taking advantage of this enormous resource can make any mom a hero to their kids. From "what do gorillas eat", to "what's important about the number 100", to educating our kids about Black History Month. Get some great sites here
to help you make celebrating the rest of February fun and… Continue

So there I was about the age of nine years old all decked out in my wonder woman under-roos with my homemade tiara and bullet proof brackets. Positioning myself on top of the couch in my basement in Baltimore, I stretched out my hands and thought, "I AM WONDER WOMAN! and wonder woman is gonna FLY!"
Bravely, I took my leap of faith and yep you guess it I took a total nose dive (literally) and didn't get airborne. Disappointed, confused, and in pain, I stood up and did only what a… Continue

We've all been through, witnessed, or are going through the stages of being a mommy blogger.
It all starts when sign up with, probably blogger, to start your blog site. You use the basic minima template and upload a sweet picture of you as a mom or of your kids. Days, weeks, maybe even a month or two go by and you have maybe one comment. Are you getting any visits?
So, you either quit blogging and move on to something else or you start clicking through your… Continue

We can grumble about the onslaught of chemical fragrances out there but where does the true responsibility rest? There are some environments we cannot control, but we can make choices about what we put in our shopping carts and allow in our homes. If you have products that are synthetically fragranced there is a way to solve this problem. THROW THEM AWAY and replace them with unscented or truly natural scented items.

I tend to be a worrier by nature. It's something I must constantly work to overcome. As I reflect on this past week, I must confess that I allowed worry to get the best of me.
I do know better, but control freak that I am, it's a struggle to leave things in God's hands when I can't see the end in sight. When I step back I realize - who am I to think I can take control anyway? How easily I forget that every breath of air in my lungs and every beat of my heart is a result of… Continue

It was a cool evening in my suburban neighborhood. A beautiful sunset was finally resting making the Tampa Bay sky dance with many colors in pink, orange, and purple tones. Neighbors walk their dogs by my home are enjoying the breeze and listing to the wind blow through the palm trees. It is such a quiet hushing sound that calms any one from a stressful day. Suddenly, the ladies slow down and finally stop in front of my house looking at each other in horror wondering if they should be calling… Continue

It seems to me that, no matter what business opportunity you're promoting, or what product you sale,
moms will always be your target market!
Moms not only shop for themselves, they also shop for thier husbands, sons, brothers, nephews, cousins
in a nutshell moms are born shoppers! or woman in general when it comes to shopping, and always have
a good eye out for a bargain!
Moms would be just as much interested… Continue

Every time I turn on the TV there is news of another awful incident plaguing our community. Instead of getting depressed I think it's time we started looking for the silver lining.

the Birthday Express catalog!
We always have 2 laying around somewhere (If there is just one, a massacre will occur!) That catalog will occupy my children for HOURS! The pictures get studied intently, the pages get turned gently, secrets are told, and plans are made all with the Birthday Express catalog in tow... This catalog gets more love than Thomas books (and those are a MUST in this house)! Tonight, as I was cooking dinner, I glanced down and there on the floor is Miss Madison… Continue

Many, many, many moons ago I was a nanny for a family that had 4 girls. (The oldest is graduating high school this year! :o) This family became my family and the girls are still like my sisters today... I ate dinner with them most nights because I usually stayed through bedtime / homework....
After seeing the movie "The Story of Us" I stole the idea of high / low... Each night at dinner we all went around the table and shared our high and low point of the day.… Continue

1. Started yelling "Stop fighting!!!" before getting out of bed!
2. Madison asked to go potty 4, 617 times in the 15 minutes that i was TRYING to get dressed! (I had to remind Jason that he can take her potty and that I had a party to get ready for... geesh!)
3. Madison refused to put on her jacket and proceeded to throw a fit for five minutes. Said fit finally ended when I walked out the door to go to the party!
4. Anthony was pretty rude and threw LOTS of fits… Continue

Today's Love Dare
was accomplished with a skillet of Hamburger Helper, which my husband loves, but which I find barely palatable. I consider myself an above average cook and am always trying out new recipes or creating new dishes, and while Steve enjoys most of my creations, I get the most satisfied reaction from him when I stick with the basics.
Today I made an effort to stick with the basics of love--patience and kindness.
I have… Continue

So, Jacob's tooth is precariously dangling by a piece of rotting skin, really a stretched-out fleshy "gum tag" that is either suctioned to the tooth or attached by little teeth hooks or something. Or maybe it’s tape, or glue. I really don’t know; I didn’t bother to learn anatomy. Anyway, the tooth has been a shiny enamel mobile in my son’s mouth for over a week, and, no matter what we say or do, he won’t let ANYONE near him to yank the sucker… Continue
