I just had the BEST, BEST day with my 6 year old. She’s about to head into Grade 1, and we hit the mall for some back to school shopping together.
Do you look forward to back to school shopping or is it something you dread as the school year approaches?
I love shopping for anything or anyone, but I’ve learned that shopping with 3 kids can be a challenge… each waiting for the other to try on different items. Eventually the boredom sets in and it’s hairy-scary…Continue

One thing about me is that I'm cheap. No, not cheap. Frugal. No, careful with my money. No, no, careful with God's money. Yeah, that's it.
I've been this way for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, I would get hand-me-downs from my older cousin who bought brand name clothes. I always enjoyed getting her Gap and Banana Republic outfits because I figured I wouldn't be able to afford such fancy items. Then when I started shopping on my own, I realized you can get super cheap…

I'm so rarely ahead of the curve however just last week some 28 yo friend of my youngest sister was hollering at me on Facebook about "my alleged parental indignation" over not being ALLOWED to take my kids to see a Harry Potter movie, at ten in the morning on a summer's day. My sister had gone to a movie theatre that had a bar and reserved seating and was gushing about drinking cocktails at ten am while watching Harry Potter with nary a kid in sight. Her friend chirped in, "I hate kids and…Continue

It's an inevitability that every parent has to experience. A rite of passage, the "supermarket shakedown" is one that indeed shakes your maternal/paternal resolve to the core. This unique meltdown of sorts is atypical in that it is usually precipitated by the perpetrator's viewing of candy-coated confections, promptly followed by an unequivocal "No!" http://bit.ly/pp9UhB

Now, who couldn't use that?
Christmas is days away people. DAYS.
I know this because my 12 year old is counting down every single bloody day.
Has she told me yet what she wants? Nope.
The girl has everything she could ask for, including an awesome mom, so this year, she really doesn't know what she wants.
Know what she's going to do? She's going to leave it up to me and then 3 days before Christmas she'll have her heart set on something that I…Continue

I picked up these earrings a few weeks ago at The Limited while Lexi and I were out school shopping. They were on sale for $6.99, which I easily covered with the $23.00 of The Limited in-store credit I’d been carrying around in my wallet for the last ten years. TEN years. I can only imagine the look on Whitney’s teacher’s face if I were to mention that, I know I promptly misplaced that bright, yellow…Continue

I woke up this morning to a 13 month old with a slight cough and a refusal to eat. Had to be the Swine Flu I thought. We've been out and about so much lately she must have gotten sick from the thousands of strangers who approach us daily, because for some reason people love babies. They especially love to touch them.
