The Traveling Working Mom Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of my Traveling Working Mom series! This week I have my second overnight trip away from Teagan. This trip will be a little longer and kicks off four consecutive weeks of work travel. Yikes!



To say I'm anxious is an understatement. As I mentioned in my last post I absolutely love my job, so when I'm gone for work I'm easily distracted, but Teagan is always in the back of my mind and the guilt of leaving my husband to be a single dad is ever…

Planning Ahead, Birthday Edition

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…

The day I met my second daughter

DECEMBER 2012

I spent the whole month of December praying that Baby S would be late. I was dreading the newborn stage. Plus, we did not know her name at this point (I wanted Scarlet, Eric wanted Fiona, neither of us liked each other's favorite name [I did not want my daughter's name to invoke the image of Shrek!! Like anyone would really think of stunning Fiona from…

Moms in Boyland

For those moms of boys, there is a camaraderie among us. We are the moms who have grown accustomed to rough-and-tumble play, checking pants pockets on laundry day for small critters, stepping on Legos with bare feet (and trying not to let your son hear you curse…

My Heart Of Stone

I'll freely admit to you, right up front, that I believe in fairy tales. Sort of. What I mean is...I believe that two people in love can live happily ever after. I believe in the power of things unseen. I believe there is more to this world than just what we can pick up with our five senses. I believe in miracles. I have no choice in the matter. I have seen miracles, I have heard of…

It's Not Your Mama's Fault Part 2

Okay, so where were we? Oh, that's right...I left off right at the point where I was officially 'emancipated' at the age of 16. Whew. Heavy. Just sitting here recalling and writing this stuff takes me back. My teenage life had been a whirlwind of changes; from living in a house with 9 bedrooms and six bathrooms with a…

Guilt -- It's A Bitch Alright

 

Kids sure have a way of (figuratively) punching you right in the gut when you least expect it, don't they?  Their unassuming words can wash a blanket of guilt right over you in nothing flat.  And before you know it, you're feeling like the suckiest parent in the world and saving your pennies for the future therapy that your kid will inevitably need thanks to…

The difference between 9 and 10

My daughter turned 9 last week. This is the child who lives and breathes all things pink and all things Barbie.

 

As I decorated the house for her upcoming birthday party, she came up to me and announced that she had something very important to tell me. I stopped taping pink and purple balloons to the fireplace and sat down to listen to her. I looked into the serious brown eyes of my daughter as she announced that this would be her last single digit birthday. Single digit? Who…

The Princess Movement

When I had my first daughter, I vowed to never ever subscribe to the ever popular princess movement!  I have been against it through and through.  The whole princess thing has been a pet peeve of mine. It brings to mind images of obnoxious, entitled, spoiled little girls.



I have to tell you though that I… Continue

Daddy's Little Girl!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/daddys-little-girl.html

I have never called myself Daddy's Little Girl, but somehow, I have always felt like I am!



And, even though I'm all grown up now, my Dad's 'Leo' strong, positive influence still plays a huge part in my life, just as it did when I WAS a little girl.



I can still hear Dad telling my sister and I that drugs and cigarettes will kill…

Drama mama....

As a mom of two girls, I often wonder what drama their teenage years will bring. What will our relationships be like and how do I avoid the pitfalls that my own mother and I have experienced? The recent visit from my own mother made me stop, reflect and realize what an evolving and ever changing relationship mothers and daughters go through.…

GirlMogul.com - Boosting Tween Girls' Self-Esteem

Andrea Stein started Girl Mogul as a t-shirt company in 2007 when she realized that today’s girls needed an alternative to diva and princess tees. The company’s popular blog has since grown to become an online community dedicated to encouraging tween girls’ (ages 9 to 12) success. The site – and the community encourages our daughters to dream big and reach for the stars.



As the parent of a now 13 year old daughter, I can tell you – from very recent experience – that the tween years… Continue

The Gift Of A Daughter...

My third child, & second daughter, is turning seven today. As she rejoices in being one step closer to getting out from under me, & having the ability to wear, do, say whatever she wants, I will be rejoicing in all she brings to my heart & my life. You are the burst of fresh air, the whirlwind of energy, the fierce, strong, independent child. You have never needed me the way…
