Out and About: What Mommy and Daddy Do While the Kids Are Away

The boys are hanging out with Nana and G-Dad {my parents} for the week. 
My Mom will offer to babysit the boys throughout the year, allowing Greg and I the opportunity to spend some quality time together. We love it! It's like a mini vacation! And judging by the pictures she sent me this afternoon, I would assume that the boys aren't missing us terribly, either. …

The Book

My girlfriend Eti has been telling me for years that I need to write a book. In my mind it would read like "Sex and the City". I have never asked her to compare it to a TV show, but I'm pretty sure it's along the same lines…with a little "Friends" thrown in.

My life today is more like "The Flying Nun". I fly about all day every day working, caring for my kids, caring for my house… The nun part I'm…

Enriching The Mind Of A Curious Child

What good questions did you ask today?” was Albert Einstein’s mother Pauline’s greeting to his genius son as soon as he gets home. This one question may not have been the lone reason that shaped the genius that he was but there is a great possibility that it contributed a lot.…

Video Games from a Gamer Parents perspective

 So, my almost two-year-old has shown a lot of interest in video games recently. Probably because they are on more than TV shows in our house. Yes, we are the dreaded gamer parents. I mean, it kind of had to happen, and there are more and more all the time as all of us 90's kids start having kids.

And I have to admit, I haven't really got to any of the hard stuff yet, like really explicit or violent games that she plays or wants to play but she's… Continue

3 Girls, a Texter & The Park

I think we all know how easy it is to get pulled into technology. A phone call, a text, twitter, blogs, Facebook- They all beckon to us with their allure and charm. I think that the stay at home parent may be especially susceptible to this due to the lack of social interaction in our daily lives. So, noticing my draw to text, talk or type I set up guidelines for myself. I try to do time consuming tasks during nap time or night time when Dad's home. Although texting in front of my girls isn't my… Continue

Rediscover Your Inner Bombshell

Josephine Baker

“I feel like crap. What I need is really hot guy to lust after me. I’m not interested in cheating. I just want to know that some seriously good looking guy has the hots for me.”  I’m talking to a good friend of mine catching up on life, career and the kids. Are you kidding? I…

I'll take the extra pounds.

I’m pulling my hair out.  Literally.


I’ve reached the postpartum stage where a woman’s hair begins to fall out.  Yay.  If you know me, you’d know that I cannot stand loose hair.  It disgusts me.  I’m not quite sure why, but I just know it’s not for me.  I’m the friend who will pick loose hairs off of the back of your shirt.


During this part of my postpartum period with my firstborn, I was pulling out handfuls of hair in the shower every day for a month.  I’m…

Funny Places I’ve Nursed

Today I realized I’ve been either nursing or pregnant for the last 38 months. Yes, 38 months of either my daughters growing inside me or happily sucking on my breasts while they nurse. That’s pretty much summed up my life. The umbilical cord may have been cut (after it stopped pulsing of course), but my babies are still in need of what I can give them nutritionally through nursing. This made me think about all the places I nursed over the years.

Juggling Life

Juggling my roles as a Mother, wife, woman, housecleaner and cook is sometimes overwhelming. On some days it’s an accomplishment if I’m dressed before noon and the kids have been fed. Those days are the days where I can’t seem to get the baby to sleep long enough to manage getting clothes on, breakfast made,…

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…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
