Joy of Luck #7: My Rainbows

Today is the last Joy of Luck assignment, and it ends on a high note.  We are to consider (and photograph) our own personal rainbow, in a metaphorical sense.  What will bring me luck in the future?  What blessings do I have to look forward to?  That one was pretty easy for me, since my family is such a blessing and I can only consider myself lucky for having the people and babies in my life that I…

Bibbiddi Bobbiddi Boutique at Disney World

The Bibbidi Bobbiddi boutique at Disney World was an awesome experience. I went into it thinking it wouldn't be worth the money but when it was all done I can not wait to take my daughter to do this again someday, if she wants to.

We got the Crown package,… Continue

Sugaring

This weekend I was initiated into Vermonterhood.  I did something that every true blue Vermonter considers just another day, yet I had never done it before.  Our family, plus Nana and Papa and some friends of theirs, went to a sugar house and tried some fresh maple syrup, literally fresh out of the tap.

Defrosting

We're defrosting up here in the extreme northeast.  Up here in the boondocks.  We are quickly approaching the fifth season of the year.  Oh?  You thought there were only four seasons?  Oh, right.  You must live somewhere other than Vermont.  I use to think there was only four, too.

 

Welcome to Mud Season.

My Life (and Death) with Laundry



By Kristin Fast, Lifestyle Editor and In-House Wit-Cracker

With the rare exception, I do a load or two of laundry everyday… every. Single. Day. We are a family of 5, with two of those five being teenage boys… (teenage boys will wear three shirts in one day, but the same pair of pants for a week) which I am sure makes it clearer why I am engaged in a…

The Here Today, Gone Tomorrow Dad

As a mom, especially an overprotective mom, I have that need to shield my teens from anything and everything that can hurt them. Broken glass, boxes of twinkies, school bullies, drunken drivers, burning buildings, pubescent boys who only have their penis and girls' boobies on the brain. But how, how do I shield my teenage girls from their father?



How do I…

Trying to "Have it All" and Feeling Guilty About it, Too

When I started this blog recently, my first post was about the quest that many women go on in order to "have it all."

What exactly does that mean?

Well, for the most part, it means that http://bit.ly/gsU2EN

Snow Day

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

Monday was an unexpected snow day.  After a weekend of rain and temperatures reminiscent of spring, winter came back to rear its very ugly head.  So ugly it destroyed our grill with one gigantic piece of ice leaping off the roof onto our deck.  (Must have done something to do deserve that kind of karma, Grillmaster…

Laundry Hell

I have been relegated to Laundry Hell for all eternity. Or at least it seems that way. Perhaps "Hell" is not the place where I find myself. Perhaps it is a Laundry Limbo of sorts; at least with this option there is hope of future salvation. http://bit.ly/h2SqeW

"Run Them Like Dogs"

I was very pregnant with my twin boys, when Dave, my neighbour at the time, offered some unsolicited yet very astute advice.



We had run into him unexpectedly at our local neighbourhood bakery on a cold January afternoon.When hearing that my babies-to-be would be identical twin boys, this wise man, a father of two boys himself, imparted the following advice in getting through the rearing of these children: "Feed them lots of meat and run them like dogs." … Continue

Parenting 101: Bribery, Negotiation and (sometimes) Threats

They don't tell you the truth. It's a carefully kept secret that those in the parenting club keep under wraps until you too are bestowed the title of "mom" or "dad."
Shrouded in mystery, this key to success and relative calm as a parent is rarely shared with those who have not yet crossed over into the world where chaos is the norm, and calm (or relative quiet) is the perennial but not always achievable goal.http://bit.ly/es94te

These Kids Are My Whole World

And that is why I am going to post a gazillion pictures in this post!  And you will love them all, just as much if not more than I do.  Okay that was a lie, but I think you'll like them. A lot.



Levi has an obsession with shoes. He loves any kind of shoe, especially boots.  He's wearing my little sister's faux Uggs.…

While having spring fever seems to be all I talk about lately, there is also another recurring theme to our winter days:  Jax wanting to be just like Daddy.  Whether it is shoveling snow or fixing an outlet, Jax is right there to shine his flashligh or offer a…

Who needs a therapist? It's amazing what a little retail therapy can do to soothe the soul!

So, it's one of those rainy days in sunny San Diego.  I'm holed up in the house with two little girls and bored out of my mind.  What do I do?  Well while my two daughters partake in a PBS-feast, I log on to the Internet and start checking out some "sales."  Dangerous?  Yup.  Especially when you can find some great deals, i.e., no added costs (taxes) and free shipping.  But what else?  How about finding even more… Continue

Do you ever have Mom failure moments?

You know, the times where you feel like you messed up, or forgot something really important about your child or their schedule? 



I just got a call from the Children's Hospital reminding me and giving me instructions for Levi's MRI appointment on Monday. Come again?  MRI? Monday?  Uh, okay...if you say so...wait, why wasn't I notified of this earlier?



Apparently I was notified, back in January. Just a few days after his two week post-op appointment.  At least that's what…

Know Where You Came From - The Genographic Project

National Geographic and IBM joined forces in a global research project to chart the migratory history of us humans. The purpose of the project is to gather DNA from people around the world (like you and me) to study how our ancient ancestors migrated to where we are today. How cool is that!
