Maybe it’s a prelude to choosing a dress for prom. Maybe it’s a right of passage we are just now finding out about. Maybe it’s just our own, quirky kid.
Whatever it is, we went…Continue

Did anyone else watch "Who knows best? Kids won't Sleep" on Tuesday night? The show put 2 "sleep experts" to the test, both who believed in different approaches to getting children to sleep, to see who would come out on top. One method was the soft love approach and the other was the tough approach.I could see both sides of the sleep battle, agreeing with some of the things one of the experts said but then agreeing with something the other one had said. I don't think there is any right or…Continue

You are no less of a super mom (or dad) should you find yourself feeling so pressured that you want to cry.
In a previous post I share how it’s OK to cry. Life as a caregiver can sometimes bring you to the place of emotional overwhelm and crying is an acceptable way to release some of that
But what happens when…Continue

I used to be a positive thinker! I didn't know to be negative, really. That was a couple decades ago, though.
Then, along came adulthood.
With adulthood came marriage.
My marriage was not the best marriage. It could have been and should have been a great marriage. But, for some reason, the sweet man I married turned into someone not so sweet.
With my husband's put-downs and all the ugliness of our marriage, I began to think…Continue

The road to adulthood for most teens is a challenging one. Puberty, mood swings, insecurities, and peer pressure are just some of the hurdles young people encounter as they prepare to face the even bigger challenges lying ahead for them because of the pressure to fit in and be “popular”. I can clearly remember when the dilemma to wear my IZOD polo shirt…Continue

I am a fan of the Duggars. I admit it. I love this show. Don't know why I just do. I think in some ways they are seriously nuts. But in other ways I admire them so much. And if you are not familiar with them you can read about them on their website The Duggar Family. And of course their TV show on TLC "19 Kids and Counting". I am going to write…Continue

Grrrrrr! No matter what my alarm is set for, my "body" clock betrays me and wakes me between 6:15 and 6:40 a.m. I've been tracking the deceitful acts. Why? Why? Why? Worst part is...there is no one for me to be angry with!

Yesterday’s wildlife sighting tally: three deer, four wild turkeys and two, TWO owls! I grew up in these here parts, and I never remember seeing more than a field of cows back in my day. Of course those cows are long gone. Their grazing pastures replaced with partially completed subdivisions [fuck yeah, real estate market!], and I presume those cows have moved on to other meals...like my girls’ McDonald’s Happy Meals.…
