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…

Welcome to Suburbia: As the Neighbors Turn (Episode 2)

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

College Bound Blues for Moms

It's August, let's talk about your child leaving for college. Yes, I know it brings up many feelings. One minute you're laughing with them at a Blue Light Special, the next minute you're dissolving into tears.



Leaving for college is a big transition for a family. For many parents it feels like a little death. In a way it is - death to the original family construct. Think about it, for years the focus has been researching prospective colleges, visiting them, talking about what… Continue

Earth Promise: Green Your Mama

Environmentally friendly gifts are all the rage these days, but with the economy still dipping, you can still show Mom how thankful you are. Here are a few ideas that will let Mom know you not only adore her, but Mother Earth as well.



First and foremost, keep in mind what Mom’s hobbies are. Does she like to curl up with a good book? Purchasing books from a second-hand book store is not only a financially great idea, but applies the reusing thought process. Like Netflix’s movie rental… Continue

The Climb

Like nothing ever happened, my week following Social Media Meltdown has been much more calm and serene. Back to my ol’ routine I find myself waking up earlier again and even though the light of dawn still brings bags under my eyes that are forever adjusting to gravity, hair that actually defies gravity and scuffing feet that barely lift one foot in front of the other, all may look like the heavily sedated depressed soul of yesterday, but I can tell on the inside… I’m different. I’m back. I know… Continue

Domestic Border Control

With my father firmly ensconced in another state away from internet access for a few days I can post this. If my brother in law is reading this I will ask him to stop now and wait for another post... (you should be working right now anyway) Today's post is a ladies only post.



For all of us moms who have been through the trenches of pregnancy, sleep-deprived motherhood, breast feeding, toddler-dom, preschool car line, and now early morning bus stop runs it can start to take a toll on… Continue

Caffeinate Me!

"Medium mochajava, half-caf, soy, sugar-free, no foam, no whip, 115degree, latte - double-cupped and sleeved."



"Large caramel, skim, decaf, iced, upside down macchiato."



" Small drip. "



Isn't it amazing that there is a whole culture and language associated with coffee? This coffee culture looks and sounds something like this:



Inhabitants enter their caffeine habitat and form a long row, each facing the back of the next. They stand in silence,… Continue

Is There Anything I Am Good At?

Boy! Some days I feel like I'm just not any good at anything!



This morning I woke up 45 minutes late. My kids in turn were running late to school. My house was (still is) a mess - didn't get the dishes unloaded last night or the laundry done or the miscellaneous clutter put away. As I picked up a friend to take to our Women's Group at church, I apologized profusely for the mess that my car was...and for being late. I over-scheduled my youngest daughter's activities for the weekend,… Continue
