When Life Throws You Lemons...Declare War!

I had this writers block this morning, couldn't figure out what was on my mind, but felt the need to type out thoughts....then I'd just hit the delete key and start over, then it had to wait until after an appointment I had, that I hoped would go well. Sometimes life just throws you crap you have to deal with and even when you think of yourself as a well balanced person mentally and emotionally, sometimes it all just catches up with you in the end, leaving you with a box of tissues on the couch… Continue

MamaBlogger365 - Kim Jennings, Remembers to TUNE IN!

I decided to write myself a letter – a forgotten art – as a way of kickstarting myself into the new year.


Dear Me,

I’m so sorry I’ve been so out of touch. I know you know I’ve been busy, and I know you say you understand, but really, I have no excuse for having neglected you most of this past year.

I thought so…

Spaghetti Squash Bake

This recipe will take a little bit of time to make but it is definitely worth the effort, especially if you are trying to watch bad carbs and need the taste of some comfort food along the lines of mac and cheese.



The first thing you need to do is to prep the squash.



Directions for the squash:

Cut the squash lengthwise…

My Rant about Nap Time

My little monster never (rarely) takes a nap for me.  She loves her mommy so much that she doesn’t want to close her eyes at all when I am around.  Nevermind the fact that I enjoy quiet time and I can accomplish a lot more when she is down for nap.  No, she parties hard when mommy’s around.

This semester, for the first time ever, I am taking day classes because I have to (budget cuts, lack of classes, last semester for B.A., etc.).  So I go to school at 1:00.  Guess what my little one…

Can Divorce Really Affect Children?

Yes it can affect not only children but also parents. Your child will start showing signs of insecurity and discontentment with his/her surroundings. He/she knows someone will leave the house and depending on the child’s age most children think daddy or mommy abandoned him/her. Children often think that the world revolves around them so everything that happens is one way or another related to them. In many cases children even think that it was their fault his/her parents got divorce. They…

Having an "aah" Moment

I should be bouncing for joy.



I should be performing cartwheels through the aisle of the study room.



I should be getting strange looks from people because my goofy grin falls to close to the line separating normal and abnormal.



Instead... I'm subdued on my first day with time to myself. From about 10AM to 2:30PM, I have no commitments on Tuesday and Friday. My emotions are cut short of full-blown joy as a mixture of guilt, anxiety, and stress coagulate my… Continue

My 40-year old Confession

They say when you turn 40 you start to reflect on life and experience a bit of self-discovery.  They also say that 40 years old is a good time to assess current friendships and to rid oneself of any toxic energy. I am not quite sure who “they” are but, I do confess (keep it low), I am turning 40 this February and it appears as if I have some work to do! My wonderfully, shorter than me, husband threw a celebratory…

Scars of my Cesarean

During my second pregnancy I wrote about my first birth experience and how the previous cesarean effected me. Writing these feelings down really helped me to deal with my fears of the upcoming birth (an attempted VBAC).…

Lately

Lil' man has pretty much been a ball of energy since the moment he discovered his fingers and toes.


 


When asked where he finds all of his energy, he responds,



 


"In my room!"



 


I've looked, and looked for some extra energy lying around…

Ghostly Prisoners - Guest post by Becoming Mommy

I have lived in old, historic American cities most of my life.  I’ve always wanted to see a ghost or at least something unusual.  Despite being an exceedingly practical person with a scientific mind, I *WANT* to believe in the paranormal.  But despite trips to old plantations, Spanish forts, and Civil War battle grounds I only have one experience which might—MIGHT—have been paranormal.

But ... these maternity clothes are pretty

I was trolling through Target recently when I noticed a few of the maternity clothes on display. No, no, I'm not in the market. But I still couldn't stop staring. Because these clothes were actually pretty. Flattering, even.

Wow. No fair.

When I was pregnant - and it really wasn't that long ago - that's not what I was seeing. I found a lot of designers who assumed that pregnant women enjoyed dressing like sailors, with blue and white blouses with bows and jaunty collars. Ugh.…

Getting Better

So I'm definitely gonna try to update this A LOT more than I have. 

Last night was my MOPS potluck.  Only about 10 of us showed up, but it was ok.  Nice for me to get to know some of the girls that I don't usually talk to.  I hope to get more involved as my time in the group continues.  I just started in November, it's great to have a little time with…

Do you trust your instincts?

What does it take for us to trust our own instincts?  Does having the confidence to pose a question mean that we have the guts to advocate for what we believe is right?  Asking questions is probably the first step in trusting ourselves.  It shows we value what we think. 

But what does it take to trust ourselves?  Experience.  There's two ways to get that- the hard way- actually go through it or the easy way- learn from someone else.  I think that's why stories can inspire us.  To the…

Family Unplugged: The Results Show

It is now 10 p.m. on Sunday evening. I have officially been "disconnected" for 24 hours, and I am ready to once again join the virtual world.



In case you missed my previous post, I was inspired by the Australian mom who made her family disconnect from all electronic devices for six months. So I made my family unplug for one day. We were not allowed to watch TV, play video games or use the computer all day. I… Continue

High School Sucks...And Then It's Over! Mary's Story

Yesterday, my daughter Mary, who is 22, and I took Sandor out to play tennis. I've always wanted a child to play tennis with and now my hopes lie with my youngest boy.

 

  As a pre-teen, Mary tried to play tennis, and several other sports, but they were all miserable and almost embarrassing failures.  We laughed and had fun on the court but she was a beautiful, smart, spaz who refused to even…

Have you ever looked at your blog’s dashboard and whimpered to yourself, “Oh, I just cannot in any way, shape, or form write a blog post today?”

We have all been there, right? Or, is it just me?

How to Get Your Kids to the Dentist Without Tears, Tantrums or Throwing

Growing up, you might remember a time in your life when the only thing scarier than the boogeyman was your dentist. Over the years, you grew to appreciate your dentist and his or her service to your dental health, however, it did take you some time to grow into that mentality. Give your kids a…
