To Bond Is To Love



To caress tenderly .. to listen openly ... to speak softly .. these are the things we do so naturally when a child is born. That inner need to shower a baby with love and affection, protect and nourish them is so natural. Bonding awakens our keen ability to sense a wide range of discomforts, enabling a mother to understand when her baby is hungry, needing a nap or a diaper change. Bonding is priceless. Our little tots grow up way too quickly and… Continue

Parenting Truths Revealed…

Things “They” Never Tell You…

As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on…

DOES YOUR CHILD EVER DO SOMETHING TO MAKE YOU CRY?



The other day we were at the pool when my boys asked a little British boy to build sand castles with them. They weren't too long into castle building,

when the conversation acutely turned, demanding my undivided attention...

DJ - "Are you a Christian?"

British Boy - "What's…

Little Darlin' or Holy Terror

I just love this photo … As much as we may not want to admit it; there truly is a little bugger and devil in all our children. It does not matter how cute and adorable we think they may be at the time because we can't loose sight of the fact discipline is so very important when raising children. We all can attest a child's unacceptable behavior can get out of hand very quickly when it is ignored and not addressed immediately. They are extremely bright… Continue

Facebook Friends

Although I began writing my latest blog on the follies with which people use Facebook and they way some of them are vindictive towards one another, my writing took a different turn, focusing more on the childhood friends I was lucky to have found and reconnected with because of Facebook.


A fellow mom-blogger, I know how busy you all are, but I would love it if you visited my site and read some of my work. I focus a lot of my writing on empowering women and the multi-faceted…

Foodie Friday | Our Best Kitchen Investment Ever

Because we just attended a wedding…and because that makes me reminisce on my own wedding day ten years ago (geesh, that decade just flew by), today’s post is about a gift we received ten years ago that was most definitely our best kitchen investment EVER. (Not to say that a lot of other kitchen items are somehow not as good. But these have turned out to be simply indispensable in so many different ways.)



So…what is the ONE miracle kitchen item?…

Tuesday Thoughts | Ahem...Exercise

I remember when I found out I was pregnant with baby #3. Yahoo! Wonderful. So excited.



Oh, the commitments to myself. ‘Boy, this time I’m going to stay on top of things. I’m going to do plenty of exercise. Eat healthy. Lots of rest.’ You see, pregnancy #2 was full of rich, dairy cravings,

and with my first child just turning one, our walks were just about as

fast as a snail’s pace at that time. Not super-fat-blasting, if you know

what I…

Monday Muse | The Beauty of Buttons

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.



2010-05-31 - Monday Muse - The Beauty of Buttons



I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…

Leaders & Followers

For those who believe leadership is a trait one is born with — well, I disagree. I’ve seen my kids follow their own peculiar drum beat but I’ve also seen them emulate the traits of others they admire. They’ve vacillated between both extremes, exerting leadership traits when confident and relinquishing that role by choice when unsure of how to proceed. In these situations I’ve observed them follow their instincts and have been…
