Proverbs 22:6 Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
A common scripture that Christian parents of small children cling to. I write this post as I'm listening to the cries of my two year old in her bedroom. She made it until just over two years before we converted the crib to a toddler bed. But with her new realization that she can now escape her imprisonment, my security (IE climb out of… Continue

I am thinking about having a giveaway!!!
Exciting isn't it?
I'm not sure which way to do it...do I have my giveaway at 100 posts or 100 followers?
As of right now I have 52 followers and this will make my 65th post. Maybe I should make it a "whichever comes first"? It's a chicken or the egg kind of toss up.
I also need thoughts on what to giveaway!

In time for Halloween, I am here hoping to repost my real life experience with the unknown that had me screaming, running and breaking in cold sweats. They used to tell me that I do have this THIRD-EYE that one of my grandmother have as well. I I can have it developed so I can talk to spirits and dead people…WHOA WHO WOULD WANT THAT?! Well, not me!
Still, I had my share of these hair-raising experiences that I would be so glad not to experience again. JUST CLICK ON EACH HEART… Continue

Ever since Munch was a baby, we've made a trek out to Dixon to a great farm where we go on hay rides and pick a pumpkin off the vine-
it's the same place we head to chop down a Christmas tree

Halloween Candy Buy Back
Local dentist offices buy back Halloween candy from neighborhood kids for $1 per pound, then send it to the troops overseas! What a great way to brighten the day of an American soldier.

A study released this week* proved that participation in formal swimming lessons cuts the risk of drowning for children ages 1-4 by 88%. Remember the first time you gave your new baby a bath? That rather concerned look on their face when you lowered them carefully into the water and then that flicker of recognition, ‘oh yes, water, I floated in my warm and comforting cocoon for the previous 9 months before you ejected me in a rather forceful manner’. I remember that my two quickly came to love… Continue

Halloween falls on a Saturday this year- what a bonus for working moms! No need to race home from work to take your children door to door. No need to feel guilty that you can't make it home until past dark. Halloween is on Saturday this year- what a wonderful thing! My son is of the age where he thinks it's hysterical to dress up like a cheerleader and actually convinced me to buy him the outfit. Pom poms and all. My daughter, on the other hand, had her mind set on being Hannah Montana which… Continue

There is great concern, bordering on hysteria about the swine flu/ H1N1 virus spreading across the country and beyond and the battle over who should and shouldn’t get the vaccine. Pregnant women are getting mixed messages and several hundred (already suffering) kids have passed away from the flu, as they do each year. Rightfully so, everyone is worried about the children and what they should do to protect them.
There is great concern about child abduction. There have been terribly… Continue

Men probably dream about racing a car or making money or traveling all around (for free) while women (me, generally speaking) dream about falling off the edge of a plank, losing a loved one, getting trapped in a place that I am unfamiliar with and, more recently, dreamed that buildings were crumbling like crackers all around me...and I stood on the only last remaining solid building in the whole...whatever that was.
Things changed for… Continue

When we went up to Pismo a couple weekends ago not only did Easy get to ride a horse, we also visited one of my favorite pumpkin patches. It was pretty much a weekend to kick start Fall. It was the first weekend of cooler weather, bonfires, pumpkin pie, first fire in the fire place of the season, and visit to the pumpkin patch! Such festive fall family fun!!! OMG...check out Easy at this farm last year HERE! Such a little sweet guy!…

As a freelancer there are terribly long stretches of time when I’m not working and others when I’m working like a banchee. Most recently I missed my girls first day of school while I was away for work. (Continue)

Ok, so here’s the deal. I’m not exactly as vigilant as I should be about what my kids watch. I tend to watch something, get seriously into it, and then when it’s too late, notice my kids are with me watching it, and it is TOTALLY inappropriate. Bad news. Well, this bad habit has come back to bite me in the ass in a somewhat disturbing, yet totally hilarious way. %

I belong to a few social networking sites like this one, and I am often asked about where stepparents can go for support. I created The Step Sanctuary to fill that void. It is a 4-week facilitated support group that meets via conference call once a week.
To learn more and to sign up, please check out my website at http://www.blackwellfamilyresources.com/step_sanctuary
But hurry, space is limited!

I won’t say the name of this organization because then I can speak more freely, but there was a meeting last night that my son and husband attended. It was a meeting for kids. Boys only, to be specific. While I say this with complete and utter respect, compassion and understanding, women and girls have no place at these meetings. Trust me. [more HERE]
