Birthday Party, or not?

As the boys Birthday’s are drawing closer, I am starting to wonder if I actually want to throw a party or not. We have thrown Birthday Parties for the last 7 years. A few have been at our home, and a majority have been at other places. Here’s the thing: When did it become mandatory to throw these shindigs?! They are expensive as all get out!

We have attended a couple of parties here in our new town and, um, they take it up a…

What I Learned While Running Errands with the Kids

What I Learned While Running Errands with the Kids

I had dropped my older daughter for a play date and needed to run some errands.

With my son and toddler in tow, I decided to take on the aisles of SAM’S CLUB.  As I was rummaging through the fruit…

5 Things My Italian Parents Taught Me About Food


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…

Help Your Kids to Choose New Year’s Resolutions

The making of New Year’s “resolutions” has been a time old tradition for many. Most families start doing it when children are young and then when they grow up and have kids of their own they too do their resolutions. The great thing about making resolutions is that they can be for anyone and they can involve anything. You can read more about this on Kids New Year's…

Your Child Could Be Missing Out!

Your Child Could Missing Out!

As I spoke to my five, almost six year old, daughter yesterday after school, she proceeded to tell me how her day had gone. It appears, according to her, no one plays with her at recess. When asked why, she explained to me that she simply waits for someone to come up and ask her to play, and when no one does, she gives up and plays alone. Now, as a mother, I feel just terrible and want so badly to make the other children play with her, but as a theatre…

Talk to the fist, 'cause the hand won't listen!


The other day, when I asked my six-year-old to go brush her teeth, she told me to, talk to her fist! 

Every day is a new opportunity for her to wield her impetuous powers... And wield she does. From the time she calls room service to…

Amazing Family Time!

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…

This Momma Needs A Massage! & Group Giveaway!

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…

Protecting Our Kids *W/ Update

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…

Books...An Unimaginable Adventure!

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?

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…

To My Dear Hubby...Happy Father's Day

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…

Catching Up On The Day To Day At Corntassle Cottage...

I have been so busy these last few days, that I am just now catching up on the day to day, so her I offer a few days worth of ramblings. Last Saturday, my bestie, our girls, and I went out to our local farmer's market to see if we could get any fresh goodies. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, there was not much left, other than some plants and a few Amish Goods. Plants I don't need at this point, but I happily grabbed several different jellies, since the hubby commented when we made our…

A Father's Day Tribute...Of Sorts

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.…
