I've become that person, the one that looks at garbage and sees something she could make with it. Repurposing, recycling, upcycling, whatever you want to call it has become a mission. I just finished making a purse out of capri sun pouches.
Having fun with my junk journals too. I've officially learned to sew a binding so some of my journals will be done that way. It's not hard but it is time consuming so only special art journals and gifts to my… Continue

So I have been using this product on my girls now for a while and like it, but it has become more and more difficult to find. Menders prime hair-hair balance cream oil moisturizer was recommended to me a while back by my youngest daughters pre-school teacher. I fell in love with it, because it kept their hair moist and you didn't have to use a lot of the product, so it didn't weigh the hair down either. It… Continue

My son has reached the pinnacle of his pre-adolescent career. I know this because he will no longer let me brush his hair.
Now this seems like no big deal, to anyone who has not parented a child. But to this mother, who pushed this particular nine-pound child into the world eleven years ago, it symbolizes the end of an era. I feel like I should be sending out announcements.
I mean, most children scorn their mothers when they see a hairbrush coming towards them, especially… Continue

I'm sorry to barge in on this great community and just start talking, but I'm on a mission to give my wife, Amy, an amazing Mother's Day gift.
You can watch the video here for more explanation: www.theboobfund.com
My mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer while pregnant with my wife and chose to have the baby rather than start chemo. She died one year later, the day after Mother's Day.
This Mother's Day will be my… Continue

So I love the idea of having Dinner together with my family, what about you!? I consider it one of the most important times of the day to spend time together with your family. It’s the perfect time and place to reconnect and to show your kids that they are your priority and you care. It doesn't have to always be a home cooked meal, it can be take out or delivery, as long as everyone gathers around the table.
It opens up the door… Continue

My Mom seriously just called and told me that. "I just wanted to let you know I can't talk." Uh ok. "I am going to watch the Real Housewives on the computer because I missed it last night." Seriously, Mom, because I didn't call you. You called me. That was her nice way of saying, leave me the hell alone for the rest of the night........

I have never really thought of a well-functioning life to have any thing to do with Time Management, but lately it the word has been popping up everywhere. A number of blogs have taken to writing about it, there are whole books on time management for stay at home moms even, and I, as a Working-at-Home-Mom (or WAHM for short), realised that the key to success might actually be through time management.
Well, at least of some sort or another.
I dislike structure. I'm not a… Continue

This is an oldie but goodie that comes around this time of year around Mother’s Day. I love to be reminded of the responsibilities we have and chores we do, because somehow when you see it here in writing and can share these moments with like minded women, it all seems so important and rewarding and we can look back on ourselves and appreciate not only our Mother’s, but the family around us that makes us who we are today. Enjoy and share with another mom or comment if you like…

I'm sure you all hear that there was this sweet competition among bloggers to define what Mom logic means to them. I voted for somebody in the top 10, (Can't believe she is my friend in REAL life as well) Anyway, This blog post entry is to define what MY mom logic means. It will probably NEVER be enter into a contest just thought a few of you bloggers might want to know. Does any of this Mom logic seem familar to YOU?

The hubby and I are "negotiating" on baby names right now and it got me to wondering... what's with all the crazy celebrity baby names? Check out my daily post on ChitChatMom.com
Added by ChitChatMom on May 6, 2009 at 10:16am —
Looking through women’s magazines and news articles about celebrity moms, you might conclude that new mothers are treated like royalty, or at least the mothers of royalty. By these accounts, new mothers glow, parents and in-laws dote, partners are awed, and girlfriends constantly stream in to help with the house, the kids, and the shopping. But does it really happen? Ask your mom or grandmother what things were like when she had her babies. Was she treated like a queen? How was it for your… Continue
