Lasts

Have you ever noticed that parents tend to focus a lot on "firsts"?



We celebrate the first time our baby lifts his head.

The first time she rolls over.

The first word, first tooth, first step.



Then as they grow older, it's…



His first boy-girl party.

Her first dance.

First date, first zit (devastating!), first time behind the wheel of a car.



The other day, I was cleaning out my planner pockets and… Continue

A Mother's Day Retrospective....

First off, I have to thank that fabulous word weaver, Allison, for having entertained the masses so well!! There’s always a place for you here in Crazy Town baby! As for me, I decided to spend the time I freed up (by suckering her in to doing my post today) to catch up on my own reading, & I made the rounds of many of my fave blogs. Imagine my surprise to hear one story after another of Mother’s…

Will Work For.....Peanuts? My Sanity?

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

My Mom Is Stalking You On Facebook!

….just so ya know, ya little punk! Thankfully, I’ve done a few things right as a Mom, one of which is to keep my kids talking. I make a real effort at ensuring they feel comfortable coming to me, because one of these days, it just may save their life. Granted, it’s a fine line between parent & friend, & I know damn well it won’t get any easier. But if the day ever…

My Mom Is On Facebook!

HOLLA!! What a fantastic success for only our second week of the Friday Funny. I laughed with old friends, made some new ones, & can tell by the response that this concept is going to catch on, & turn that mind-numbingly dull FF in to a wildly enjoyable journey aboard the Crazy Train! So a big shout out to all of those crazy beeyotch’s who came along for the ride, & for…

Transitions

I've started going through pictures of my daughter from infancy up till now. Eighteen years worth. I’m doing this in preparation for the graduation party video I was going to create (now she is), and for the surprise scrapbook I'm making for her to take to college with her. (No longer a surprise because I accidentally mentioned it and now she keeps removing any pictures where she thinks she looks the least bit funny. Like this one: …

My Best Baby Food Making Tips!

Riley Eating Baby Food I thought that maybe on this Toddler Tuesday, I would travel off the beaten path of cute baby pics and

videos, to bring you a few tips regarding making your own baby food at

home. You see, somewhere along the way I got it into my head that I

would never serve Riley any store bought baby food. I had always heard

how expensive that stuff was and how easy making your own baby food

really is. Also, I…

Easter Product Review ~ PAAS All-In-One Fun Easter Egg Decorating Kit

Hosted on Mommy Living the Life of Riley!



In true Easter fashion, I am writing a product review for the PAAS All-In-One Fun Easter Egg Decorating Kit. My daughter, Riley, is 17 months old and so basically, this is her first "true" Easter. My

husband and I decided to let her have a little fun decorating her own

eggs this year and of course, the name…

How to Build and Use Tables in Your Blog!

Blog Tables As promised in an earlier tip, I wanted to write a post dedicated to creating tables in your blog. You would be surprised at how much I use this valuable tool to

get things to look just right and maximize my space on sidebars, footers

and even in posts. What you can accomplish with the use of tables is

amazing and I think it is a tool that every blogger should be familiar

with...so here we go! (As a matter of fact, I used…

I wanted to write this post tonight because it is a question that I get from a lot of my readers and it is a great tool for any blogger to use. This is a very convenient way to squeeze as much content onto your

site without having a blog that continues on FOREVER! I want to try

and explain in a few steps how you can turn your sidebar into…

It's Official...I'm the Mother of a TODDLER!

Riley and Mommy Yesterday, a funny thing finally occurred to me…my baby is officially past the baby stage! It is a melancholy realization for me because I think all parents hang on

in some form or fashion, to that tiny, precious, helpless little

creature that you helped bring into this world. I know that, to me,

part of my daughter Riley will always be that little baby, no matter how

old she gets. But, where do you actually draw the line between a baby

and a toddler? Some…

Banning the Dictionary

I read a story a few weeks back about a school district in California pulling all copies of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary from its libraries because a parent complained the dictionary was being used to look up "age inappropriate" words by students. When I read this story I literally laughed out loud.



Banning the dictionary? Really?



Let me start by saying, I'm all for keeping things age appropriate. When our kids were younger, we were some of those weird parents…

Driving Lessons

It sounded like a good idea at the time.



I had read an article about these super-cool magnetic bumper stickers, CAUTION NEW DRIVER, and thought to myself. What a brilliant idea! Whenever I'm having my newly permitted child practice driving skills, I'll just slap it onto the back of the ol' van. Then all the other kindly drivers will be instantaneously aware and think to themselves, "Oh, look. How sweet, a new driver. I'll give him a nice, wide berth so he has plenty of room as he…

For the rest of you, if you recall, I left off in my story with the hand model who had just moved in behind us.



Well, I noticed whenever my hubs was outside working in the yard with the kids, the hand model would always come up to the fence for a chat or bearing an invitation to a pool party she…

Scholarships

Once our daughter's high school play finished up in the fall, she tried unsuccessfully to get a job. You'd think retail shops would've at least been hiring temporary help in preparation for the holiday season. But, no.



So we decided that instead of looking for a job, her new job would be applying for college scholarships. Ideally, she's devoting around 10 hours a week—the same hours an outside-the-home part-time job would require—applying for scholarships.



Initially we… Continue

Need Advice - Content Balance on Your Site - Your life vs Product Reviews/Giveaways

Recently, I posted a product review and received several posts from my readers that they were either leaving or not happy that I was posting so many product reviews versus posts about my life. Thats why they were there to read about my life.



I admit that I did not start my site to get free products or get invited to events, it just evolved organically that I began getting invited to do these things.I admit that the events/products review did seem to be taking up more of my posts… Continue
