Last year at this time, I was tearing my hair out, in tears trying to figure out where Isaac was going to school for kindergarten. He had just come out of an amazing integrated preschool, where he had been for 3 years. I wasn't handing my crazy boy off to just any school. I had only a few weeks left to make a choice. I had options for Isaac to go to private school, public school or even… Continue

Now, all you have left to do is begin the glorious journey of educating your children at home.… Continue

Last week I wrote about how the food Blue eats is a primary concern for me. I want him to eat nutritious, well-balanced meals, made with food that is safe for him to eat. The latest food recall has really made me think about the kinds of foods he eats and how to makes sure the food I am giving him is safe to… Continue

There are moments as a mother that make it all worth it. That you look back at all the struggles and decisions you have made to date; all the unattended soccer games, all the struggling to wrangle them into hockey gear, all the torturing moments and tears at swimming lessons-- and think to yourself-, "I made the right decision", or "I did… Continue

Does anyone else dread sending their husband to the grocery store?
Yesterday I said "I have green peppers but I'm almost out of tomatoes."
What did he bring me? A huge bag of green peppers...I think there might
have been a tomato or two in there somewhere but you could barely see
them through all the peppers.
He also gets on these "kicks" where he's really in the mood to eat a
certain item and he obsessively buys it. These items are always the same

My corn crop was not a rousing success this year. Being from Illinois corn country, I had a higher set of expectations than I probably should have. I am a corn snob...you can read about it here. The sweet corn that came from the fields surrounding my house was the best in the world. Little… Continue

This morning started early…or I guess it felt like yesterday never ended. Payden kept waking up all night for some reason and the girls were awake by 5:30 am. Honestly why do kids wake up so early? Why can’t they just
get up at 8 am?? What is so horribly wrong with getting a little extra sleep??
I have a plan when my girls are teenagers and love to sleep in on Saturday’s
that I’m going to set their alarms for 5:30 am just as pay back….ahahaha!…

Yes it's that time again...Back to School. In some parts of the country like mine, kids returned to school as early as August 2nd. Needless to say I home schooled last year and it was a neat experience
but this year the kids returned to traditional school. Both my kids
have been actually really excited and today I walked my son to 3rd
grade. His teacher seems nice, and my daughter went to 8th grade and we
almost got lost finding some of her classes.
Moms.. I don't… Continue

I’d forgotten how much easier a summer without a child in diapers can be. I imagine this also applies to diaper wearing adults, as well. Not trying to deny any one particular groups’ hardships here, I just don’t know any diaper wearing adults. As far as I know, my friends and family all enjoy control of their bladders and colons. And chances are when one of them becomes incontinent, they’ll update their Facebook profile status to...… Continue
