Perhaps the alternate title for this post should be something like: why your preschooler doesn’t take a coat when it’s cold outside. Although I don’t have children yet, I’ve been around enough of them to know that they often do not follow the directions or precautions you give them, no matter how many times you repeat yourself. So why is that? Are they just choosing to ignore you? Or is there something different about the functioning of their brain that makes it difficult for them to plan… Continue

I'll be honest, I've been following Moms Bloggers Club on Twitter, and thought I'd join. I have no idea what I've just joined....so bear with me. What have I done? What am I doing? Where do I go from here?
Like everything else in life...I'll just stumble through it! =)

Started potty train Little Sprout ( Nickname Juan Juan) last months when she was 18 months old. Here are some of mama's plans:
1. Start putting her on pants instead of napkin during daytime.
2. Placed a few potties around the house, easy for Little Sprout to reach out.
3. Showing her a good example of peeing in the toilet bow.
4. Praise her, give her a hug and kisses when she pees or poops in the… Continue

What a great day! (Except for the black ant invasion that greeted me this morning in the kitchen, ugh… Do you think 8 traps will do the trick, fast?) I got so much done, it’s beautiful outside, I had a massage . . .
I made a phone call, finally ordered some new contact lenses, and paid some bills this morning, so I got that out of the way. After playing with the babysitter for two hours, Landon took an extended nap (with the help of more… Continue

Today, I did something I thought I would never do, but knew it had to be done...eventually.
It had been something on my mind to do but at times I never had the change or the extra hamburger.
After seeing CJ and hearing her nag about me not eating (she could tell I was loosing a lot of weight quickly), I stopped by McDonalds. I ordered my Vanilla ice cream cone and 2 cheese burgers. The young man in the first window gave me my change back. The dollar bill looked to much… Continue

Four years. I have forgotten how it felt to pee without any interruptions. Four years. That is how old my daughter is.

This situation doesn't seem to be going away any time soon.
I had CNN on for about an hour yesterday afternoon and it's a good thing I wasn't playing a "Swine Flu Drinking Game", they repeated the phrase so often I would have been drunk off my rocker after 10 minutes.
This morning they say
the best way to avoid this strain of sickness is by "social distancing"; closing schools, churches, and social gathering spots. Heck,… Continue

I've just posted a new post to my blog ChitChatMom.com
about being a work-at-home mom. My hubby and I have decided that I'm going to make the transition from working girl to stay at home mom when our baby daughter arrives this summer. After a six week break following her birth I'm going to resume my previous life of freelancing. I know it will be challenging, but I also know it's the best decision for my family.
If you get some time check out… Continue

Going to school full-time and being a mom, geez I have had harder things in my life but this is just too much at times.
I got married at 22, had a baby at 23 got divorced at 25 and now I am going to school at Misericordia University in Dallas PA. I am in a special program that allows single mothers to go to school full-time and have their children on campus with them, it's a blessing that I will never regret.
I have to admit though this is my first semester and things… Continue

reposted from here.
When I first got pregnant, I was scared to death. Not of the birth itself, like most normal people, but of what was to come after the little gummer was out of my body. I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t think it was going to be horrible, but I knew it wasn’t going to be a walk in the park. I’d heard stories from women saying that they bled the entire time until their six-week… Continue

Well yesterday i did something that hasn't been done for a while, my poor dry as straw, unstyled, pony tail clad hair was cut! I haven't paid much attention to my mop for a while, my normal hair routine consists of a wash then being allowed to dry naturally because i don't get the time to dry it, a quick brush (not always daily i admit) and being slung into a pony tail with any bobble i can find (normally 3year olds's coloured ones).
This was a real treat for me, I did… Continue

As a technology person, I was excited to hear about President Obama appointing Aneesh Chopra as the U.S.’s first chief technology officer
. I like to think of him as the first chief technology officer for us, the people. With so much talk in the past about how backwards and behind our government is in the technology space, this is a breath of fresh… Continue
