I thought I would dedicate a post to my son seen as we celebrated his 7th birthday yesterday. All the little quirks he has that my daughters don't and the constent excuses I make cos he is just a 'little boy'!!

I have today published the above post on my blog. It is about how difficult life can be living with a teenager. From experience I would say pick your battles. My daughter and I have been going round in circles for the past year or so yesterday I decided to call a truce with her....I dont know how long its going to last but until we start working…Continue

For those stay at home moms that feel like a failure, you are not alone. I think it is part of the job description that no one talks about. So let’s talk about it and how to make you feel better about yourself and even enjoy your time with the kids.

In our daily lives, we are exposed to a startling number of chemicals from the pesticides sprayed on the produce we eat and pollutants in the water we drink to the industrial chemicals found in the air we breathe. Although we do our best to reduce the amount of chemical exposure we experience in our…Continue

Being a great dad can be tough work! Between long hours at the office, keeping up with projects around the house/yard, helping the kids with homework or that perfect pitch and taking turns shuttling the kids to afterschool activities and games, there’s lots to do! So what better way to make sure they…Continue

I would have to say that the months of the year, that bring the flowers and green back out into the open are my favorite simply because they allow for amazing family time! Because we live in the Mid-west and experience winter month with ice, snow, and cold, it is difficult getting out to do winter activities. Sadly most of that reasoning is due to me not liking cold or being cold! LOL! So I try to let go of my “hermit” ways during the nicer weather and venture out of the house with the…Continue

After the last few days, this momma needs a massage! LOL! I can't believe how quickly this week has zipped by, any more than I can believe that we are almost through June and July is just around the corner. Of course, when the week keeps you busy, it is no wonder that it has flown by. I still find it funny that even after five months, I still have not managed to establish a routine with my days, which before long will make me absolutely crazy! Though I spent so many years living by the work…Continue

Yesterday I was offered the opportunity to guest post over the The Wondering Brain with the wonderful Jessica Dy. I have included a bit of an update from the original, marked by an asterisk below.
Protecting our kids is a full-time job in today's society, with threats around every corner. As the mother of three, ranging in ages from 10 to 19, I know that the internet is a huge draw for kids nowadays. My kids, like most, know almost all there is to know about online technology. There…Continue

Post originally shared as a guest post at The Wondering Brain
Books provide access to an unimaginable adventure. One of my favorite hobbies has always been reading, for as far back as I can remember. As a kid, I spent a lot of time with my grandma, and every week during summer break we would ride our local city bus to our local public library. I would of course make a bee line to the children's section to select my books. I had…

What is a blessing? Wow, what a loaded question, right? It amazes me to think of the things in my life that I consider to be a blessing. I am sure that it is a list that could vary slightly from some and majorly for others. I have really only even started thinking about and realizing just what I have to be blessed about, in the last maybe ten years. I am not sure if it is something that most kids even consider, and I think if you had asked me at any point during my teen years what blessings…Continue

I would like to say to my dear hubby...Happy Father's Day! As I write this on Saturday night, so that it will be ready to post for Father's day, I think about how much he always wanted to be a father. During the time when he was married to his first wife, that dream could never be realized, since she could not have any more children. Of course, when he and I got together, I was able to still have kids. Now, while I of course wanted more kids, it was not something that I wanted to jump right…Continue

I have noticed all of the post's lately about the upcoming Father's day and of course that comes with a Father's day tribute. Father's day, is really a day that I don't give a whole lot of thought to. Now that is not to say that I don't cook dinner for the hubby, and get him stuff from the kids, and maybe even a card from me. But otherwise, I don't really give it a lot of thought. This will probably be a hard post to write, only because it will be rather matter of fact, so here goes.…Continue

I swear sometimes I totally feel like the Energizer Bunny and I have to just keep going and going and going. LOL! The other night, as the rest of the house was in bed and it was just before one o'clock in the morning, I was sitting here at my computer with my headphones in and the melodic voice of Myles Kennedy blaring in my ears accompanied by either the guys in Alter Bridge or Slash and The Conspirators, finally with a few moments to wind down from the last few days. There is nothing…Continue

Well this holiday weekend at Corntassle Cottage was filled with various adventures. Most of the weekend was wrought with storms, and some of them included heavy rain and wind. We even had a few branches blown down onto the neighbor's house. Luckily they were not large enough to cause any real damage, just a scrap on the siding and a dent in the A/C casing, for which I am thoroughly grateful. We even managed to be able to grill out steak's for dinner on Monday evening; there is nothing better…Continue
