We don’t get too worked up about a little mess at our house
My friend Emily over at The Motherhood recently asked me to co-host an online discussion about how to “unspoil” your child. Due to a scheduling conflict, I couldn’t participate, which was disappointing for me. I find spoiling kids to be a particularly annoying habit of many parents.
I started… Continue

Friday afternoon, I took care of some long over due errands. Along with me were my three girls, plus one of Lexi’s friends. You know, back before the babies were born and it was just Lexi, adding a friend to the mix meant 1 kid + another kid = 2 kids. Now it’s 3 kids + 1 more kid = 5,734 kids. Mothers out there with three plus kids, I can’t decide whether I should admire you or send in the US Army Reserves to aid you between nap-times.… Continue

Tis the season...the season for heavier and carbier foods. As soon as the weather gets cooler and I add my extra blanket to the bed and dig out my favorite fuzzy pink slippers, my body starts to signal that winter is near by berating with cravings for all things carbs! Seriously, like bears, I swear it's some biological need…

If you are a helicopter parent
, you probably already know it.
Many parents are proud of it. But for those parents of teens that think
they have escaped that label, why don't you see how many of these
questions you answer yes to.
10 Signs you are a Helicopter Parent to your Teens
1. Under no circumstances will you ever turn off your cell phone, unless
all your kids are with you. It doesn't matter how old they are or where

Most fliers hate kids, or something like that. I'm preparing to record a podcast on traveling with baby and came across a reference to a Skyscanner
poll from August. I should probably save my horror, disgust, and terror for the podcast episode, but Halloween is near and those adjectives deserve their own post.
I'm less horrified/disgusted/terrorized by the actual poll than by the comments to the… Continue

Life seems repeatitive. Life seems long and dramatic. Life seems unfair and
at times unbearable. Life seems to be a series of games. One day you're the winner and the next you're being played. Life is...
It's being what everyone else wants you to be. It's being what is acceptable. It's hiding the real and showcasing the mask. Life is...
Life is all of that…

For as long as I can remember I have loved anything that came with double breasted buttons. I have been drawn to them and if given the choice- I will always choose the garment that has them. When my best friend in high school joined the Navy when we graduated, he obviously had to buy a Pea Coat as part of his uniform. That is where my obsession with the Pea Coat began. They are so… Continue

As the sun abandoned the world of the living, the line that separated the dead became unseen and the darkness interwove two worlds. The unnerved, masked in disguise, displayed carved gourds to deter the haunts; while others lit candles and placed treats near the road to assist loved ones back to the spirit world. It was a night that predictions about the future were clear, summer was laid to rest and the cruel winter began; October 31st marked the ancient Celtic… Continue

Lately, I have really been trying to be mindful, and have a mind-body connection because I feel disconnected inside. Logically I know stress can kill, but I put so much of myself into others, most days I often run on empty.…

*THANK YOU FOR READING! PLEASE COME CHECK OUT MY NEW BLOG DESIGN!*
Sarah is my middle daughter. She just turned 3 years old and is my short, sweet, and loving second daughter. She is well spoken, clever, and creative. Her kisses are sincere, her arms wrap tightly and squeeze lovingly with hugs, and her smile melts every person's heart that meets her.
She is a precious gift, there is no doubt.
But I may not survive her.
She has got to… Continue

Recently the internet world, as opposed to the real world, has been abuzz with studies showing that couples with kids are less satisfied than those without, that kids are (gasp) expensive, and that women with university educations who take a few years off (or more) to raise their kids experience a "motherhood premium." Although these are all interesting topics, I tend to place these findings into the… Continue

You heard me say it. Politics these days are stupid and the more we get closer to voting day the more these stupid TV ads get well....even stupider. Does it every remind you of the high school blame game and the rumors written on bathroom walls? Political ads these days are all about how you can make your opponent look bad. I have yet to see 1 add where a political candidate simply states what they will do for you without bashing their opponent in the process.
