Mother's Day is poignant for most of us. We all had a mom and we are moms. Hopefully, our moms were good moms
though I do know from drying the tears of many women that not every woman had the mother she needed. And for that, my mothers, I'm sorry, because it’s a pain that stays a long time.
My mother was a good mother but she made mistakes. As a bossy first born I was quick to point them out whenever the mood fit me.…

It is the Friday before Mother’s Day and I am reflecting on all that makes me a mom, especially a mother of internationally adopted daughters. I am a typical mother, Continue
I make sure my kids are well fed, with as little sugar and processed food on
the table as I can manage…although I tend to lose the candy game with their
Dad. I make sure they have clean
clothes and that they started out matching when I bought them…not always
successful on the fashion…

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed lately and it's my own doing. I have become one of those over-scheduled moms who tries to do it all plus some...we have an activity for almost every day of the week, belong to a local mom's social group, play groups, I do laundry twice a week, keep a fairly clean house, and have this blog.
Now I have a job interview tomorrow. Yes a job interview
. I have been considering going back to work for some time now and sending resumes but with this… Continue

Parenting drama (trauma??!!) aside for the moment, I’m relieved to have the chance to pass off the reins tonight & let someone else amuse you with their own parenting journey! As the calendar turns to May, many of us turn our thoughts to Mother’s Day, & with four kids of my own, I know the struggles of motherhood first hand. This is why it was important to me to embark upon May Mayhem, in… Continue

I'm always better about resolutions when they are written down.
So here's my post about my Earth Day resolutions...
Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, everyone!
In honor of Earth Day, I would like to talk about one of my favorite green products of all time - Shaklee's Basic H2 concentrated cleaner. For over 50 years, Shaklee has been green, even back when it certainly wasn't the popular thing to do. I love how they were the first company that was certified climate neutral and all their products are made in harmony with nature. … Continue

…..You’re all a bunch of idiots! Thankfully, more than one billion people in over 190 countries around the world will be taking part in Earth Day 2010 today. This is an opportunity to spread awareness & take steps towards making retribution for the state of our planet. As we celebrate Earth Week, every citizen needs to come to an understanding of the terrible atrocities being inflicted, &… Continue

Well the Day is upon us, are you getting pinched today or are you pinch proof and wearing green? If not then it might be a little too late but if you're anything like me you're always seeing ideas and saving them for planning for the next year so this is my little posts of ideas to do next year for St Patrick's Day.
I really wanted to make these to take to the monkey's class today but she's been home sick with a virus and well momma did good to make her a bow so… Continue

So as my challenge progresses I realize how lazy I actually have been! I just finished my second “workout” with the Your Shape and I am feeling it. (Not that that is a bad thing.):) My back is killing me and so are my abs, butt and legs. I know this is a good thing right now, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it!...

I've always hated holidays that smack of forced gaiety and commercialism - New Year's Eve, for example - and Mother's Day, after all, was created by the greeting card industry. But I couldn't help being touched by those grade school projects, the macaroni necklaces and coupons for services the kids never really meant to render ("one foot massage" "24 hours of no arguing"). And of course I always send my mother flowers and a sappy, totally heart-felt note that is as different as possible from… Continue

"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path." - Agatha Christie
To all my fellow and future Moms out there, I wish you a fantastic and beautiful Happy Mother's Day!
As a tribute to this day I have included a picture of one of my favorite paintings(above) by Mary Cassatt, The Child's Bath, c. 1891.,… Continue

Happy Mother's Day to all you blogging mamas. I hope you all have wonderful, relaxing days with your families.
I've just posted my daily blog on ChitChatMom
and decided since it was Mother's Day it was a perfect opportunity to write a little open letter to my mom.
Have a great day!

Okay, this whole blogging thing intrigues me greatly but I've been a little hesitant about putting up my picture. Call it procrastination or fear of losing the anonymity of being able to speak freely knowing that I will never be recognized in the grocery store as a famous mom blogger. Since there are literally tens of thousands of blogging moms in cyberspace I guess I shouldn't be worried about becoming the latest internet celeb and endangering mine and my families privacy as the paparazzi… Continue
