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… Continue

My daughter had her first piano recital this past Saturday. She did an awesome. We were so afraid that she would end up chickening out or mess up and start crying on stage. Friday night hubby started talking to me about how he thought she shouldn’t sing – just play the piano (to make it easier on her). I was like, great – thanks for waiting until the night before to express your feelings.

Since I’ve been on the receiving end of a snarky comment today – I thought I would contribute a blog post to “Miss Snarky”.

I no longer have a nursling. I was very lucky to be able to continue nursing my youngest as long as I did, just over 2 years. YAY. I do have mixed feelings about it though. Nursing definitely wasn't something that came easy and I haven't always wanted to nurse my babies. Continue
With my first our nursing relationship was a…

My second installment of Sibling Sunday is about my daughter – the second oldest. I’ve posted about her a couple of times talking about how sensitive and smart
she is, but this post will be more lighthearted.…

I’ve talked about how sensitive my daughter is before, but she’s also very intellegent. They say the smarter you are the crazier you are. I think it’s true in her situation...

I was reading San Diego Momma's blog this morning and her post really resonated with me and got me thinking. (Thank you, Deb for inspiring my post today).
Deb's blog was about boundaries and not being able to set them. Not being able to say no. She also wrote about the inability to stand up for herself when a man had gone too far. This is the part that… Continue

I've erected a Christmas tree, added some lights, and even some colorful ornaments, but I cannot seem to get it like Momma's tree use to be.
Find out why I cannot get my expensive Christmas tree to stack up to Momm'a Goodwill version by reading the "Christmas brings back dear memories of Momma

I'm not embarrassed to say it, "I love the 80's!" I'm sure I have a diary entry somewhere that reads "...when I grow up I want to be just like Coco (ya know, Irene Cara's character from the film, Fame)." I think it was a combo of my young age, the music and the fashion. Truth be known, I listen to 80's music all the time. In fact, my I-pod is loaded with tunes from Culture Club, Madonna, Donna Summer and The Go-Go's. And as much as I love me some 80's fashion I did make a promise to my husband… Continue

how hard being a parent really is. When you are growing up and you tell your parents, I will never do that to my kid...almost 99% of the time...you are lying to yourself. You find yourself doing the same things to your kids as your parents did to you. It sucks...cause it isn't fun. But now I have that much more respect for my parents. It takes alot to raise children these days. Protecting them from all the evil in the world. Trying to show them right from wrong. Teach them about life and death,… Continue

Love Basketball? Wanna Take Center Stage in MSG at Half-Time?
When I was growing up in Westchester, NY in the 60's, my brother was regularly asked by my dad to go see the all-star, championship NBA team, the "New York Knickerbockers" (aka Knicks) play. Yes, those were the days of Walt Frazier, Dave DeBusschere, Earl the Pearl, Willis Reed, Senator Bill Bradley and other "dream-team" players of all time. When my dad would ask my brother, never considering that I would find basketball… Continue

My mum arrived exactly a week ago and as always the rollercoaster has had as many highs as lows in the last 7 days and 5h09 min... I love her more than anything and she truly is my best friend. I have always had that sort of amazing relationship with her. The sort of relationship most my friends envied with passion. She is my confident and the shoulder to cry on, even miles away. We have always been able to tell her everything, I mean EVERYTHING. She knew all our little secrets as well as my… Continue

The Tale of the Dung Beetle
By Pamela Victor
My daughter Sierra, her friend Hope (oh! how this name foreshadows our tale!) and I were walking the dog early one summer morn. The weather was, for once, lovely. Not too hot. Not too cool. Not too buggy even. The girls brought a carrot each, a treat for our neighbor's fine equine companions. Birds chirped. Wind whispered. Girls giggled. All was well in our little piece of the world.
My little nature girl, Sierra, cried out… Continue

From birth, I tell my children how smart/sweet/handsome/pretty/amazing and miraculous they are. Constantly. This is the result:
Lily, you’re so pretty I said yesterday, as I made sure she was buckled in her booster seat.
I wish we looked alike, I sighed, staring at the daughter who inherited not one of my physical traits, save for the freaky double jointed thumb. Wouldn’t that be fun?
Noooooo!!!! She vehemently responded, without missing a beat. Because then I… Continue

What can I say about the most wonderful woman on this planet. Other than I am so VERY grateful that she is mine. She will be turning 75 this September, and whats so funny is that its taken so much time to see her as anything but what I remember her always being. Its been a tough 4 years, but the progression continues. One more time, God shows me that he won't give me anything I can't handle. She has lived a pretty healthy life so I haven't had the experience of taking care of her. But she has… Continue

About a month ago my mother came to visit me. She lives in a relatively small town, so her trips to the city consist of us doing a lot of shopping. Recently, her favorite foundation had run out so we happily made our way down to the expensive department store for a new jar. Due to the birth of my daughter and the lifestyle of a mom with two kids, I had not been using my foundation so I had not actually been to the store in over nine months. Little did I know that they had completely renovated… Continue

Gee, thanks to everyone who has so warmly welcomed me to the blogging world! You are all very gracious and I am excited about sharing on here.
I'll start off with a little about myself and my daughter.
I am a single mother (though I am in a serious relationship with a guy who has a son). I work as a teacher at a middle school here in Ohio. I love Ohio (HUGE BUCKEYE fan), but I hate the cold weather. I enjoy watching my daughter play whatever sport she is playing at the… Continue
