Mommy's Make-up

When it comes to make-up I am no stranger. I’d say I exercise a reasonable restraint in resisting daily usage, but at the same time I enjoy the perfecting powers of foundation and blush on my tired mommy complexion. I never thought of my usage to be excessive or that it would have a negative influence on my daughters. But when my toddler started running up to me freshly done up with the make-up she took from her teenage Aunts room asking if she was “pwetty” I couldn’t help but wonder…. Was…

MamaBlogger365 - Kim Jennings, Remembers to TUNE IN!

I decided to write myself a letter – a forgotten art – as a way of kickstarting myself into the new year.


Dear Me,

I’m so sorry I’ve been so out of touch. I know you know I’ve been busy, and I know you say you understand, but really, I have no excuse for having neglected you most of this past year.

I thought so…

Scars of my Cesarean

During my second pregnancy I wrote about my first birth experience and how the previous cesarean effected me. Writing these feelings down really helped me to deal with my fears of the upcoming birth (an attempted VBAC).…

My Cesarean Prayer

When I gave birth to my first Daughter I had an emergency Cesarean. I honestly thought it  would be my final act to bring her into this world and this poem sums up the prayers I made during surgery.

MamaBlogger365 – Keeping The Faith by Leticia Valasquez

I was taken aback when the ophthalmologist told me I could have a uveal melanoma in my right eye, near the optic nerve, and that removing it (which might be necessary to save my life) could destroy the vision in that eye. I was paralyzed with fear, in my…

Join Mama w/MAMABlogger365 initiative ~ Gwyneth Paltrow, Stress & Strategies, raising awareness for M.O.M.

It’s so easy to turn inward when we think about motherhood and what it means and how we do it every day. But even celebrities are not immune to trying to do it all – of course, their circumstances and list of daily to-do’s are different, but in essence, maybe not so much, as evidenced by…

Another Turing Point....My New Year Resolution

SAVEDBYLOVE

 



1 You have searched me, LORD,



and you know me.

2 You know when I sit and when I rise;

you perceive my thoughts from afar.

3 You discern my going out and my lying down;

you are familiar with all my ways.

4 Before a word is on my tongue

you, LORD, know it completely.

5 You hem me in behind and before,

and you lay your hand upon me

6… Continue

Back in The Game!

Motherhood and marriage sometimes brings you to the point of no return. Brings you to a place where you think, where has the time gone? and do I get anytime for myself?



In an attempt to force myself to workout and stay in shape, which is so hard to do when you are juggling life, I decided to join an adult Field Hockey League. Field Hockey had been my life for so many years and an escape from so many stressful life events. So, after months of debating and encouragement I did it. Now… Continue

Must.Clean.House

I get up this morning, head for the coffee maker, pour myself a cup of liquid energy and turn around to survey the surroundings I let me family live in.



It's bad, people. It's really bad.



The dishes in the sink smell like the failed dinner attempt I'd had the night before, the counters hold the tools that failed me so and something sticky and - ewww icky - is taunting me, daring me and Magic Eraser to give it our best shot. I feel my arm muscles spasm in… Continue

Motherhood





The role of motherhood is constant, it is never ending. We never retire, nor can we resign from our “job” of

being a mum. There is no role in life more essential than that of

motherhood. I feel so blessed and humbled to be fortunate enough to be a

mother.



There is no one perfect way to…

Who mothers mom when she's sick?

After spending the weekend down-for-the-count with Strep Throat, I realized that when it comes to being sick this mom's on her own. http://bit.ly/9QoFMq

Wacky Cake

I am making sure that I bake with my girls at least once a week this Summer.

We tie on our aprons, thoroughly wash our hands and get to work.

It is math and measuring. It is reading and comprehending. It is together time and it is love.

This week we made Wacky Cake. Possibly the richest and bestest chocolate cake ever.

Said cake was devoured within hours of frosting.…

A Mother's Body

Ben and I went out for dinner Saturday night. And, in an effort to notch things up a bit, I let out my ponytail and changed out of my sport bra.





While I was in the shower I thought about what I’d wear, and decided on a pair of jeans that I’d purchased years ago, two pregnancies ago, in Chicago. And people, these are the kind of jeans that require you to bring your A-Game whenever you try them on. The kind that CANNOT go into the dryer,… Continue

I have flaws, but so do diamonds.

I have a love/hate relationship with my job. The company I work for, in general, is excellent. My coworkers are some of my favorite people. The pay is wonderful, the work is easy (typically easy- there are anomalies), and the benefits are plenty. While I could do this job in my sleep, it can become tedious and frustrating.

I work at a contracted call center of a government agency responsible for reasearching and disseminating information about…

The Bonds of Friendship and Motherhood

I just finished reading a book that touched me on so many levels that I was compelled to write about it. This doesn't happen too often. This book left me laughing and sobbing uncontrollably at the end. It's a story about… Continue
