Life Brothers

Sometimes you find a friend that sticks around for 5 minutes.  Sometimes you find a friend that will tell you they have your back until you realize they’re the one that stabbed you.  Not often enough in life we find that one friend.  That one that no matter how much time or distance life has put between the two of you, they still manage to be there when you need them the most.…

Do I have to eat this?

At the beginning of every month, I plan out all the meals that we are going to eat. For the whole month. I do this for a few reasons (meal planning, to ensure we aren't getting repetitive with our dinners, and to allow myself a few nights off from cooking each week). And I am painfully aware that as I plan out the meals there will be a number of dinners my son will not want to eat. Chicken tikka masala? No way. Pulled pork sandwiches? Not…

It's March!

Hey ya'll!  For the next few weeks I'm going to take a little break from the whole step mother and depressing topics.  I kinda bummed myself out a little.  I've got to throw some excitement in here every once in  awhile!  

March is probably the best month there is!  What normal person has a favorite month?  Well everyone if they choose their birth month.  March just happens to be my birth month.  Along with my mother's as well.  I think that's the reason we don't see eye to eye on…

It’s hard to believe our twins are already two. I have been eagerly watching them grow and hit developmental milestones, yet the graduation from baby to toddler is paired with feelings of sadness and worry. My babies are grown and it’s happening fast. Just as it did with Thomas. Days…

Let Them Be Little

Kids grow up fast, real fast. One moment they are sitting in the back of the car singing the ABCs, then next moment they are singing ‘hot line bling’. If you think about it, childhood is just small portion of life, not even 10%…I’m not sure who decided that childhood should be so short, but whoever made the decision, they totally got things backwards.

As parents, we want to raise our children to be functioning members of society. We want them to be good people, to know right from…

Family Traditions: Happy Birthday George Washington


This past weekend we visited one of our favorite historical parks, Washington's Crossing, to celebrate General George Washington's 284th birthday. This is the second year we visited the park for the event and, luckily, it wasn't 18 degrees with snow and ice covered grounds this time around (although the snow did make… Continue

He's Here! He's Here!

Sorry for my absence, but I've been buried in tiny diapers, toddler tantrums, and baby snuggles for the last week. Our little guy arrived last Tuesday morning at 9:31am and life has been whizzing by ever since!


This is Bowen James and he is 7lbs 1oz, and 20 1/2 inches long. I don't want to say he is the perfect baby, because I know it will bite me in the butt later, but he kind of is. He's the sleepiest, hungriest, cuddliest little babe and he is the perfect addition…

Breast Is More Than Best – It’s A Life Saver

The term "Breast is best" is tossed around often, and most people take that to mean that nutritionally, breastmilk is better than formula. But it goes so much further than that! How much further? How does “fewer infections, increased intelligence, probable protection against overweight and diabetes, and…

Whole Wheat Cheeseburger Pie

This recipe is an old favorite in the Betty Crocker Cookbook. My family and I have loved this for years. It was one of the first dinners that I made for my new husband, almost 8 years ago, and we have been cooking it at least once a month ever since. In the last year or so, I have been really trying to make my food a bit more “clean” and unprocessed. What I have changed about good ole Betty Crocker is making homemade whole wheat baking mix. You can find the recipe at …

As mothers we all know that the feeling we get the first time our child says "Mama" is pretty close to being on top of the world.  I mean... I don't know what being on top of the world feels like but I'm sure it's pretty much the same thing.  What about the first time your STEP child calls you "Mama".  GASP!! 

It could have been accidental.  You…

Family Traditions: Fat Tuesday & Lent

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, officially the last day of gluttony before we Christians  traditionally opt for a more ascetic lifestyle during the season of Lent, a period of forty days beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on Easter Sunday symbolizing the forth days Christ spent fasting and in pray before starting his ministry. During lent, we typically sacrifice something… Continue

Favorite Make-Ahead Meals

For once, our freezer is stocked. I still feel like it's not enough, but I have no room for anymore stuff, so I guess it will have to do! I've been making a few extra meals each week for the last few weeks to stock up on meals for when the baby comes. I've learned that anytime I make a casserole, to just make two of them and freeze the other one. It really doesn't take anymore time and saves me from cooking a meal on another day. It's so handy that I will continue to do it from now on to…

Mother Knows Needs Best

Do you have a child with special needs?  Does your family think it's a good idea to tell you what you're doing wrong?  

My son is four years old and has been fighting a rare allergic inflammatory disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis.  Yeah, I still can't say it.  Although he has had this from birth, we didn't recieve a diagnosis until Hugh was 16 months old when they found a penny sized ulcer inside his tiny tummy.  One of the largest ulcers ever seen in a child that small.  That…

No one is paying attention to you

This time it happened before breakfast.

My son woke up and started asking questions about how babies fit in the womb. So, of course, we looked at cross-sectional drawings of pregnant women and…

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
