Protests in France...They are not a stereotype!

This past weekend I saw yet another two protests. I was going to write

about them, but it would have only been a small excerpt since combined

they consisted of about 50 people. In front were the Women’s Rights

people talking about abortion and tacked on (literally) to them were

the communists. I didn’t really get what the communists were

demonstrating about. They really just looked like they had organized a

handful of people to follow the feminists around. Perhaps… Continue

The Things I Wish I Knew When I Became a Mom

1. That a 2 year old is perfectly capable of dead bolting the front door (this I learned when left stranded outside after getting the mail, in sub-zero temperatures with no jacket on). Also that it would take 20 minutes to talk said 2 year old through reversing the process and unlocking the door (accompanied with lots of tears and cries of "I can't do it!")… Continue

To Cut or Not to Cut . . .

Ok. So maybe I'll find some comforting advice . . .or not. I have a dilema. Status: healthy, married, 26 years-old, pregnant with my third child, and 100% absolutely sure I don't want to have anymore children. So, what's my best option for birth control?

According to my doctor, mother and even husband it would be to sterilize. Now, none of them are pressuring me into doing it, just giving me arguments to consider either way. The biggest one, and most recurring is that if I feel I'm…

Synchronicity is More than a Coincidence

Have you ever had an experience where you said, "Wow, what a coincidence." Maybe it was more. Maybe it was a synchronicity. Let me explain through a Jungian perspective.

Carl Jung, the prominent Swiss psychiatrist, believed synchronicity meant 'more than a coincidence.' Jung, the thinker and founder of analytical psychology, connected synchronicities to the bigger world: the collective unconscious. These were not just assumptions on his part, Jung believed the collective unconscious… Continue

The Long Awaited Spontaneous Trip

John and I are planning a trip to Hawaii sans children and I am soooo excited!!! We've never gone away by ourselves in the 9 years we've been married (I hope I still know what to say to him). I've always talked about going to Hawaii and I've been planning the trip for 14 years (ever since going there the first time) but despite all of that, this actually came out… Continue

Best Crockpot Brunch- Check it Out!

One thing that's always hard is coming back from church on Sunday morning and having to cook brunch. I hear a lot of complaints about hunger while I'm whipping up muffins and eggs (and sausage). I tried this sausage and hashbrowns recipe in my crockpot on Sunday, and it is delish! Let me know what you think... :)… Continue

My Battle with PIMPS

I don't know about the rest of you, but I for one am done having kids. I say that, knowing of course, that my resolve will only hold so long as all women I spend any significant time with are also done having kids. You see, I have found that I suffer from a rarely talked about syndrome…

Why taking a break from your kids is important

Do you remember the first time you found out you were pregnant? You probably experienced all sorts of emotions ranging from joy to fright. But then you had 40 weeks to adjust. Although some of those 40 weeks were probably laced with nausea, back pain and all other discomforts that accompany pregnancy, you were still in a peaceful environment, living a quiet life with your partner. Then the labor pains began (or in my case, the c-section was scheduled) and somehow you…

Crazy Smart

I’ve talked about how sensitive my daughter is before, but she’s also very intellegent. They say the smarter you are the crazier you are. I think it’s true in her situation...

Whose Playtime is it Anyway?

Right at this very moment, I am sitting at one of those play places where the kids can eat (only the establishment’s food…no outside food allowed) then run and climb and go crazy. We came here specifically so the kids could go crazy at a place other than our house.

I brought my computer to take care of a few things, but couldn’t help but observe the dynamics of a place like this and write about them. After eating their lunch (kind of expensive for what you get, by the way), they were…

Heaven on Earth

“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” ~ Henry D. Thoreau

Although I’ve heard the expression ‘Heaven on earth’ many times, it was only yesterday that I realized how easily we misinterpret its meaning.

While I buy into the concept that to get to the light at the end of the tunnel one must first go through the tunnel, I also feel that the road has been particularly long and rough this year – with sub-freezing temperatures almost everyday, and a pale sun… Continue

Guidance vs.Control

“Give people enough guidance to make the decisions you want them to make. Don’t tell them what to do, but encourage them to do what is best.” ~ Jimmy Johnson

A few days ago, I had a conversation with my daughter’s preschool teacher. Her concern was that even if Morgan scores exceptionally well on tests, she rarely follows directions, and prefers instead to follow her own mental map.

After hearing the same things over the years about my boys, her observations didn’t… Continue

Lessons from a Daffodil

“Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.” ~ Voltaire

Yesterday was a dreary day. With temperatures in the forties and a steady, icy drizzle, one felt more motivated to buy warm chestnuts and candy canes that the Easter eggs and colorful bunnies displayed on the shelves of a nearby drugstore. A month away from Easter, winter is still ruling the land.

Yesterday morning, one of the posters on my blog mentioned seeing her daffodils… Continue

When the Wind Blows

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on.” ~ Robert Frost

When I was a young girl, I found it mind-boggling how older people never seemed to really worry about anything. As for any teenager worth her salt, a small stumble was enough to devastate my world.

One day, one of my mother’s friends came over to see us. She looked terrible – her face was etched with deep lines of worry, and her eyes lacked the spark I was accustomed to see… Continue
