It's more than just being testy after a bad day. As moms, we've all experienced days that go something like this: The morning starts off with spilled milk and sticky crumbs on the kitchen floor, progresses to tomato juice dumped on the carpet, includes a stopped-up sink and a visit to the emergency room, and finishes up with the dog meeting a skunk. Throw in a call from your husband telling you he's bringing company home for dinner--"just something casual, hon."
That's a bad day, and… Continue

A few days ago I received an alarming e-mail from a friend about another mom’s little daughter who got very sick and was hospitalized after ingesting hand sanitizer. This is not the first time I have heard about this, and I want to urge everyone, parents and grandparents, to be very careful with these products or not to used them anymore at all!
This little girl, four years old, was very lethargic and incoherent in school, and when they got her to the hospital, she had an alcohol… Continue

Just the other day at an intake with a new client, a desparate mom asked, “Is there any hope in getting Will organized?”. “Yes, of course Will can get organized. It may take him longer than some of his peers but it can happen,” I said. Apparantly Will’s mom didn’t like my answer since she commented to me,”Well that was a very passive answer!”. General maybe but passive, no.
Parents who seek my help are usually at the end of their rope in helping their child become organized. As I did… Continue

This week, on Thursday to be exact, Kayla will be getting tubes in her ears. During our appointment with the ENT specialist last week they hooked her ears up to a machine that tests pressure and fluid levels.
She failed miserably.
Both ears are still filled with fluid, her left ear being the worse than the right. I feel so AWFUL for her. Her poor little ears have not been fluid free since OCTOBER! That's 5 solid months of fluid and on and off again infections. I can't even… Continue

Gardening can be super fun for the children and the adults. Hard work does pay off when you use some little mommy techniques. I did alot of gardening for my mom when I was young and the work was awful.
When I grew up I thought Id never put my kids thru that. Then two years ago I decided I wanted a garden. I wasnt gonna make my kids work in it though. That year I learned alot.
There are many things about children and the most thing I can think of is… Continue

We all love witnessing our children’s milestones. Be it their first step or their first home- run, watching our kids try, accomplish and succeed is always a rewarding moment. Recently we have adopted a new mantra with our kids, “teach not tell”. With our four- year-old doing things daily to challenge both us and his curiosity, I see my husband and I often “telling” him how to proceed. We sometimes forget he is only four and allow our impatience or… Continue

I posted this over on my Mothers Moon blog at www.MothersMoon.blogspot.com
Perhaps I was having a bad day. Perhaps I was frustrated with the same questions, the same concerns that weigh on the minds of many of us from time to time, having to also weigh on the mind of my seven year old. Perhaps I was tired of him asking the same questions over and over again that I have no answers to. Whatever the reason, when he asked his question this time I launched into a long monoluge, my voice… Continue

Recent visitors suggested I try to market our guest house to parents of Autistic children. Their child loved the animals and whole atmosphere of the farm. The parents were able to relax completely in the guest house and cook and do things whenever they wanted. They had been searching for 'hands on' activities for their child. He was able to feed the cows, visit the llama and bond with the goats. If anyone has any ideas how to target such an audience, I would greatly appreciate it
. Or if… Continue

About a month ago we were shocked to hear a story about an eight year old being charged with the shooting death of his father and another man.
Yesterday in Arizona, coincidentally, the same state as the eight year old, a 12-year-old boy who fatally shot his mother after an argument over his chores was found guilty of premeditated murder.
Prosecutors proved the boy acted intentionally and with premeditation when he shot hos mother eight times on August 1st. Mother and son… Continue

This afternoon after church, I found that most of us were sitting on our couch with our computers. As I looked over to Luke, who was also typing on his computer, I thought about how fast Christmas vacation went by for him but for me also. He desires to go back to school a few days early so that he can work at his job. Why? He may be asking a special girl for her hand in marriage and he would like to save for her engagement ring. Can you believe that this little boy who named himself "Pastor… Continue

You know the words to that christmas carol don't you? Well, if it wasn't for my son coming home from college from Michigan tomorrow, I would be singing that song with joy! Don't get me wrong, I love the snow and looking out the window right now, we have a bit added in with more ice and my candles in the windows are glowing gorgeously with the backgroundsnow. But boy, I sure miss my son. I have not seen Luke for a few months now since he went back to college. He is a pre-seminary student and… Continue
