Time To Get Our Prayer On

There have been countless times during my parenting experience where I think we should really make religion more of a focus in our family.  Now, don't get me wrong -- I, by no means, am a Bible beater; nor is my husband.  However, little inquiring minds wanna know just who this "God" dude actually is and why so many people are always talking about him.

And…

Cheers to NINE Years!!!

It's so hard to believe that it's been NINE whole years since my uterus was housing those two little beings pictured above.  I welcomed them into this big wide world without having even the slightest clue how quickly time would fly.  Since then, it's been a roller coaster ride of ABC's, training wheels, boo-boo's, and temper tantrums.  They make me…

"Hunt"ing for Camp Runamuk fun!

Last Friday was the last day of Camp Runamuk (the affectionate name we call life at my house when the kids are off school and fun is involved) and I decided to host the First Annual Dugdale Trifecta Easter Egg Hunt.



Here’s what you get when you have 4 mommies + 14 kids + 225 eggs + 12 tons of sugar =



1)      Sometimes even the snails want some chocolate!  The eggs had been out for literally 10 minutes, and we had an attempted robber!
2)      If…

"How many of these kids are actually yours?!"

. . . was the question from the Dish Network installer at my house today as we were entertaining 14 yes, I said FOURTEEN, children.

Today we had Camp Runamuk, Day 2 – Gettin’ Dirty.  We made “mud” cupcakes, bird houses, paper butterflies and mommy made a sad attempt at a cardboard boomerang . . .

. . . and here’s what we learned:

A Tooth Fairy Called Wanda

As a parent, I'm trying REALLY hard to hold onto the whole believing in the Tooth Fairy thing for as long as is humanly possible.  So when a kid's tooth falls out in this house?  Well, I wanna be on top of that shit like white on rice.  Unfortunately, however, I'm not always totally prepared for the curve balls that motherhood sometimes throws my…

Memories Of Singapore

The very first time I went to Singapore with my girl was in March 2011. We took a VIP coach bus at 10pm and reached Golden Mile, Singapore at 5.30am. Never had we experienced such a tiring and exhausting night before, catching only a few winks on and off only.



 The bus stopped three times for the passengers to answer some "nature calls" and we finally reached the immigration around 4.30am. Imagine how sleepy our looks were when we were at the checkpoint! :) Thank…

Women and the Art of Play

 

We all know about the importance of play for the emotional growth and development of children. It can enhance their imagination, increase social skills and boost self-confidence. So why don't we place more value on play for ourselves? According to a recent study by the Families and Work Institute, ½ of American women don’t have enough time to spend on themselves and the activities they enjoy.

Early on, girls tend to be collaborative, communicative and caring – you can see it…
