With three boys I am daily reminding them to keep their hands and feet to themselves. They like to wrestle, jump on each other and someone daily seems to be making unwanted contact with the other.

My kids have always LOVED commercials. Maybe it's because their dad works in advertising, or maybe it's because, unlike me, they never ever get tired of hearing the "Flipeez" theme song that seems to play on repeat between shows. Whatever the case, when an ad pops up on the screen, my twins are completely riveted. So when a totally inappropriate commercial was shown during a KID movie on…Continue

My parents doing what they loved most, cooking a good meal.
Like many adult children, the older I get, the more time I spend reflecting on my parents' life and the many traditions they passed along to me and my siblings. Raised in Chicago, my parents were Italian-Americans who grew up with the same traditions that have been passed down in…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who has noticed their child has started to show signs of real independence; whether buttoning up their own shirt or washing their own hair in the tub, the small things that can be done without Mama, are being done without her.
This realization came to me the other day as I was attempting to complete a set of sit-ups (attempting is the key word there) while the Sonny Boy was scrubbing away in the shower unassisted. …

I come from a home where ‘ I ‘ was celebrated, ‘I’ was made to feel important and ‘I’ was special. I had a wonderful childhood not because of the things I had but because of the way I was made to feel.
God created each child to be a wonderful unique individual. My oldest is spirited and he loves all the attention he could possibly have. He loves to play with automobiles and planes. My second is calm (now moving on from there) and independent. He loves to play with pots and pans. My…Continue

So this weekend I went to a friend's baby shower. I met a lovely couple who is three years into dealing with a custody battle. They said the were hopeful that they would be done with it soon. It was nice to talk to people who had a VERY similar story to my own. Boy, I didn't have to look too far.
When I am through with all of the legalities I will be blogging in detail about my experience. I don't want other mothers to have to go through what me and this other couple have gone…Continue

Finding half-siblings for my kids has been very important for me, in truth it is why I started blogging, in almost every post I would put our donors number (BGM 9581 by the way) and it is why I joined the DSR (Donor Sibling Registry) before my first was even born. I feel I have been lucky enough to find two half-sibs. One on the DSR, and one because of my blog. I know that there are at least 25 reported births as of earlier this year, but…Continue
