My son's birthday just passed. Since it's the beginning of the week and we'll be celebrating on the weekend, we knew we still had to do something ON his birthday so I baked a cake and cooked dinner. We always eat food at the same time, which is whatever time I finish cooking, but we eat in different rooms. My kids eat in the kitchen, I usually eat in my room while watching one of my favorite shows and my husband likes to eat in…Continue

Trying to plan a birthday party with 3 kids running around is rough. Today, I am sharing my planning methods that help me to be stress free and enjoy the planning process!
My daughter is turning 5 this December. I plan birthday parties months ahead of time because I get everything done without worrying about spending too much all at once, not finding certain decorations or anything I need at our local stores, making sure I order what I need with enough time to get here and send back…Continue

My birthday is this weekend. And I'm going to celebrate. All. Week. Long. (Maybe even longer...I haven't decided yet.)
When I was growing up, I didn't truly enjoy my birthdays. There was a bad incident with a clown on one birthday, and for the others, I was a bit shy and didn't like being the center of attention. My parents tried to have parties for me, but I didn't…Continue

Cue the red carpet, marching band, and fireworks, y'all, cause today is my birthday! Yippee! But let's be real here, people -- I'm a mom, and we all know what that means. I'll be schlepping screaming kids from Point A to Point B, scrubbing skid marks out of little undies, and turning to my friend Google to help…

Have I mentioned previously how much I love Pinterest? I went on there to create a board for Pirate theme goodies just so I can have an easy place to keep track of things I found. After searching their site for additional ideas, I came across much better ideas than I originally had. Things I can do myself, which means I can save money (yay)!

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.
If you've recently celebrated a landmark birthday, you may be thinking about the milestones in your life. Crossing from one personal decade into another is a significant event and takes on a life of its own. Connecting with friends who are also making this transition can help focus on what you've gained over the years – memories, perspective, wisdom – rather than on what you've lost – agility, some energy, your youth!…

I've always believed that everything happens for a reason. And though we often don't ever know the reason, sometimes, we get lucky enough to find out just why things happen the way that they do. I LOVE those little "aha" moments. They help to restore my faith and to reassure me that something greater IS actually in…Continue

I cannot be the only one…whose weeks are so full of things to do that they fly by fast and whose weekends fly by even faster. Time has a horrible habit of getting away from me (notice how I don't take the blame for simply having bad time management skills) and before I know it it's Friday afternoon and I have so much yet to accomplish. This past week was no different then the rest and we had quite a few things going on per usual.
It was a gray and chilly day…Continue

I know I have been MIA for the past week. I have been busy with the usual, driving kiddos around, homework, mediating sibling quarrels, repeatedly cleaning up the same messes (if I had a quarter for every piece of dog food that doesn’t make it into our dog’s mouth I would be halfway to a millionaire!), etc. And in my free time (I just made myself lol! Free time, what is that!?), let’s be honest, it is more like on my in-between drop-offs and pickups I run into stores that are on my route (I…Continue

Wow, I can’t believe it has been two years since I was impatiently awaiting for you to arrive. I remember when I was on my way to my final doctors appointment, I didn’t know that it would be my final visit as a pregnant mom. I had a previous history of low amniotic fluid during my previous pregnancy and she order the ultrasound to ensure that I still had enough fluid…Continue

It's hard to believe that ten whole years have passed since I was squeezing my legs together like a freaking vice so my twins wouldn't be born on my birthday. Yep, call me crazy, but I did NOT wanna have to share the same b-day as my kiddos. I mean, seriously, moms get so few days of recognition as it is!…Continue

This weekend I went to PrideFest 2013 and saw one of the women there selling jewelry. Really different pieces, including earrings made out of guitar picks. Not what I'm accustomed to buying, but that's what caught my attention.

Our little guy, Rocco turned 5 on March 10th and being that his latest obsession is hockey & ice-skating, it was only fitting to throw him a hockey/skating themed party!
But here’s the catch. I delivered our 3rd baby boy 2 weeks before his birthday so this party was thrown together last minute! Why…Continue

I signed up to bring Fresh Fruit for Roman’s pre-school class and when I showed up with this tray, I had signed up for the WRONG CLASS! Wouldn’t you know, the wrong folder was on the counter at the wrong time when I scribbled our names in for the 21st of March. Thankfully, Roman’s sweet…Continue

Our little guy, Rocco turned 5 this past Sunday… 5!!! A WHOLE HAND!!! I seriously can’t believe it.
At Rocco’s pre-school, the kids are allowed to bring in a special birthday snack for the class. So, in true ‘I’m going to try to be a crafty mama‘ fashion, I immediately…Continue
