I remember when Will was learning to talk. His first word was appropriately 'ball' as we constantly played ball with our puppy and the only toys the 10 month old liked were 'balls.' He soon said 'Dada' changing the last syllable to '-o' within a week. All he said were those two words, and a barking sound that resembled his grandparent's beagle. I remember telling Daddo, 'He's never going to say 'Momma.' But he assured me that one day he would eventually pick up more words and most likely… Continue

When was the last time you felt rejected?
Rejection can actually take many forms:
- Asking for something and not getting it
- Someone devaluing your work, thoughts, or opinion
- Someone not returning a phone call, email or text
- Someone ignoring all the nice things you’ve done…

If your kids are past infancy and you've never had a bad mom day, I can't be friends with you. I just can't. It will never work. You are not from this planet, and I think it's best for my kids if I don't bring extra terrestrials around.
I mean every sane person has a bad mom day.
If you're here on earth, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Sometimes it starts from the moment you wake up. Other times if creeps up on you around noon. Everything everyone is saying is…

Ever have one of those days where every-freaking-thing seems to go wrong? And no matter what you try to do, it all just turns to crap? (If you haven't, then it's safe to say that I kinda hate you, but I digress....) Well, yesterday was one of THOSE kind of days, where if I would have looked up, I…

Some people would say that the cost of silence is free. Those people are not mothers. There is always a cost. Like when your toddler is having a full on tantrum during the 2nd hour of a 14 hour trip so you give him the remaining ½ of a chocolate bar knowing full well that it will leave the worst mess on him, the car seat, the car, etc. but your sanity and that of your husbands is well worth the mess. Or maybe you plopped junior in front of the TV… Continue

My son is very, very angry with me. He shouts at me and stomps his feet. When I don't react to that, he narrows his eyes, lowers his voice and says, "I hate you, Mommy." Continue
I have his school to thank for that.…

Have you ever slipped and said a tacky word in front of your child? I know that I am guilty of this of accidentally saying something I will regret later or said something that wasn't appropriate for my children to hear. I have always tried to be aware and watch what I say and do in front of them. I want to make sure that my kids aren't picking up bad habits. Believe it or… Continue

Unfortunately, we hear on the news all the time about parents full-out losing their shit on the sidelines of their kids' sporting events. A bad call can somehow turn supposed "adults" into the biggest meatheads on the planet. It's both despicable and embarrassing. And I thought I'd seen some pretty horrific behavior… Continue

L's friend R had her 5th birthday today. Both girls were invited to the party. Before the party took SB out to sell her girl scout cookies. Sold 6 boxes in an hour. Not too good of a sales day for a Saturday. Last house we stopped at ended up being a girl scout leader. We were informed in polite terms that we were trespassing on another's territory. To my way of thinking if a girl hasn't gone out and sold in her territory halfway through the cookie sale then watch out. … Continue

If I'm the self-proclaimed Queen of Attracting Stupid Situations, then my husband is without a doubt the King of Attracting Stupid Situations. (Not sure what that says about us being attracted to each other, but anyway.....) I swear, between the two of us, we are an accident waiting to happen at any given moment. The latest case in point? This past weekend when… Continue

My husband always tell me to tell it like it is so hear goes....We have 4 young children and as they are developing I realize more and more how important our choices are for them. Not that we are always making the right ones but at least trying to get it right is better then just not doing anything.
When our first child Luke was born we were like any other parent so conscious of everything. Is he breathing? Is he to hot/cold? Wanting him to hit every milestone 2 months ahead… Continue

I'll start with the conclusion to a very long story. After an ordeal (story below), we are now the owners of a red, veil tailed Betta named Cole. Buddy insisted on that name. I wanted to name him Bernie. He's a frisky little fellow and regularly engages… Continue

I feel ashamed to admit how often I lose my cool around my children. In all honesty, not losing my cool at least once during the day is a rare exception. Not only do these kids know a great deal about how to push my buttons, but they are also extremely irrational. The combo of the two is a sure fire way to bring out what I call "Mean Mommy."…

My GP said this to me this morning and it's not yet certain whether she is extremely insightful or some type of witch doctor that cursed me because the rest of the day so far has confirmed that the light everyone refers to at the end of the proverbial tunnel is in fact a train about to run us down.…

As you may know,
me and Husband are about to have our first baby girl.
In less than two months from now.
Some weeks ago, Husband was surfing the net and found on a friend’s Facebook profile some interesting pictures.

Imagine a scene from Footloose and you have a basic idea of what my high school prom looked like…without the grain elevator, without the cakes and pies, and without the fighting. But, there were plenty of pastel colored long dresses, and ridiculously pastel ruffled tuxedos. Roses and baby’s breath abounded and everyone was on their best behavior.
