Kids can’t sleep because light is streaming through the curtains? Can’t afford blackout curtains? Check out these two hacks that I’ve found extremely useful:
1. VELCRO THE CURTAIN TO THE WALL
Using one half of the velcro sticker on the curtains, and…
lly and I wanted to do something special for Daddy, just to show him how much we love him. We sat down to brainstorm a couple ideas of what to do and finally settled on making a collage for Daddy. The collage would contain things that he really enjoys and something that describes him. Although our Daddy is one who likes to wrestle and roll around on the floor, he also really enjoys dressing up and looking nice!
Check out our finished picture and see how you can make one…Continue
Our family cat is 15 years old. She has been "retired" for the last five years and is no longer required to kill any bugs that creep into our home. She enjoys a life of relaxation, attention on her terms and pampered quiet.…
I have some memories of doing my homework when I was little: The phonics workbooks at the small table in the kitchen while my mother cooked; math homework with a friend where we didn't understand what we were doing and later found out we did the homework completely wrong; studying spelling words alone at my desk in my bedroom (that last one never worked out for me).…Continue

I have single friends who like to tell me how busy they are or how tired they feel during the day. I also have Mom friends who do not work and who have nanny services who like to tell me how rough it is being a mom.…Continue
Our dinnertime conversations have become quite formulaic: We talk about the events of our days and if we are close to a weekend, we share any upcoming plans. (If it is slow going, I will tell a fanciful story about my day that features a dragon just to see if anyone is paying attention.) Some nights this goes better than others. We ask a lot of specific questions about our son's day, but we find that he doesn't have a good recall for the…Continue

I frequently find it difficult to come up with dinner ideas. I get so bored having the same meals over and over. Brandon doesn’t very often have input on dinner, so he is of very little help. To my surprise he came to me the other day and said….
Brandon: Hey mom, I really wished we could have those noodles we had in Colorado with Dad at that one…Continue

Well-meaning friends and family members always have questions. When you start dating someone for a while, they want to know when you are getting married. When you get married, they want to know when you are going to have a baby. When you have a baby, they want to know if you are going to have another baby. (And, if several years go by, they really want to know if you are going to have another baby. If you hedge at all, they are…Continue

I like Dial body washes so much that when they're on sale, I stock up! It's affordable and it's something that local centers can appreciate when you donate a box to them! Who wouldn't want to feel clean and smell good?

It seems as my son has gotten older it has become harder for us to make family time. I think back to the days when we would take weekend getaways, family trips and even day trips to local attractions. I have so many good memories of those days and miss them as well.
Even when my son was in high school and playing sports, my husband and I looked forward to attending all of his games and supporting him. We enjoyed traveling to new places to…
