Skye and I want to rip out the Berber carpet that we had installed in the basement years ago when my mother-in-law briefly lived in what is now the mancave. We want to replace it — the carpet, not the mother-in-law (Hi, Shirley! *waves at mother-in-law* You are irreplaceable!) — with the tile we have leftover from the home improvement project we still refer to as the DIY that almost dissolved our marriage.
Skye: “I thought you knew what you were doing!”
Me: “I thought you… Continue

Knee pain is common, especially when beginning the soccer season. Children frequently have pain over the front of the knee in sports with running, jumping and cutting. Taking time to adequately stretch the muscles in the front and back of the thigh will help prevent this condition. Knee pain lasting over three days should be evaluated by your child's physician.

Hi dear Moms,
In my younger days I thought I could control change. I learned, and not quickly I would add, that no one can control or stop change anymore than one can hold back the tides or halt the autumn leaves transforming from green to gold. This brings me to today's topic of change and how to understand it and accept its daily invitation.
First, change is inevitable. Think of those individuals you know who, despite painful adversity, have been able to go on even after… Continue

, has conducted a National Mom’s Survey and we thank those of you who have taken the time to complete it. The idea was/is to learn more about you, as moms and to design the most resourceful site to fit your needs. What we learned from a large majority of you is that GUILT is the number one obstacle preventing you from returning to work. In response, we asked Julie Potischman, Butterfly's resident psychotherapist the… Continue

People say alot of teen mothers are very unfourtante to have a better future. I say no, I think if we can have more postives sources and programs to help us understand a better way to get out of a situation, then we would turn out to be a doctor or a lawyer. Alot of young single mothers never get to really work on their carrers especially if you aren't getting any help. For instance I've been on public assistance for almost two years since my 2 year old daughter Jayla been born and within those… Continue

I take on too much. I know that about myself, can't help it and then I pay the price. I push, push, push and eventually I push too far and the world starts spinning and I don’t mean figuratively. I mean I wake up in the middle of the night and feel like I am on the Teacups at Disneyland. Every time it happens I react like Redd Foxx. This is the big one and grab at my chest while quickly running through all the people who will wake up the next morning to hear the news. Not you people of course,… Continue

Most of us are all aware that we should get an annual mammogram on top of doing our own monthly self examinations. Do we all do it? Of course not, there are times when us moms forget where we left our head at because we all have so much on our plate as is. All kidding aside, this is one real serious topic ladies and gentlemen (yes, men can get Breast Cancer too).

10 Tips for Teaching Kids to Spend Less:
Shop from a list. Before you go into any store, make a list of what you need. Don’t stray from your list and don’t let your children stray from their list. This is a key strategy for reducing impulse buying. It takes discipline and discipline is essential for reining in spending. When your child asks for an item while you’re at a store ask: “Is it on our list?” If not, don’t buy it.
Do product comparisons.… Continue

We went to the Mountain's today, it is always nice to have a meal like chicken and dumplings.
My sister tells us a story, she heard knocking on the door and went to see. It was her two chickens, they were pecking on the door. We said, they wanted more okra.
We did say you are a real Hillbilly when you have chickens knocking on the door. We love our Hillbilly heritage.

Dude, when did going to the movies become something you had to save up for? I know that bitching about the cost of movie-going these days has been done, but I can't help it. Everytime I go, I wonder how the people that run the theaters and/or the people who run the concession, are able to get their A.I.G. on and continue to charge consumers prices for things like candy and soda that are so clearly robbery. Oh, and now, not only are they continuing to violate us in the most base and lube-less of… Continue

A bit of history: About a month ago, a friend of mine decided that she was going to have her IUD un-installed. She thought she was "ready to start thinking about trying to come to a decision about" getting pregnant. She knew the consequences. We both knew the consequences dammit but that didn't stop us from throwing caution to the wind and then watching it fly right back and smack us in the faces with the sound that I imagine liver makes when dropped from a great height and lands on the… Continue
