Really, I Am Going To Keep My New Years Resolution...

I know, I know.... Who still makes New Years Resolutions and actually takes them seriously?



Well, in my attempt, no, "journey" is a better term... In my journey to find and maintain my recently distant, pre-parenthood sanity, I have made a firm commitment to develop and succeed in my New Years Resolutions...



This is a big deal... This is the first time, ever, that I have made a decision to develop a New Years Resolution and seriously commit to it. In the past, I simply made…

The Last Goodbye

On May 3rd 1992, my son Eric Miller was killed in a one car collision. He was home visiting with family in Louisiana. My family and I visited Louisiana very often. However, when my son began to insist that he spend some time in Louisiana with our family, I reluctantly agreed.

After I received the phone call telling me that my beloved, beautiful and kindhearted son was killed in a car accident; I slowly began to understand why going home was so important to him. It seemed as if I was…

Daily Family Planner

I tend to have a one-track mind. Once I start something, that's it; everything else kinda gets put on the back burner until that thing is done. I've always known this about myself, but every now and then the reality of my blinders hits me. The most recent focus of my time and energy has been my blog. I get up in the morning… Continue

My Precious Angel Of A Child Is Testing Me!

It is inevitable that sooner or later, our "precious angels" will challenge our authority and power as their parents. Little do they know, we are usually always a step ahead and have the benefit of knowing them better than they know themselves...



My recommendations are to not force or use intimidation to "control" their behavior. Remember, even though we are parents, we still don't have the God given ability to "control" another human beings behavior and attempting this with a…

I Only Took One Picture...WHAT?

Yeah, with all the craziness yesterday I used my camera once to take a family photo and I wasn't even in the picture. Bummer. I didn't even get J digging in to his Thanksgiving plate, actually he didn't eat one thing on his plate, he just wanted cheerios or crackers. I tried hard to get him to try a spoonful of mashed potatoes. J was dressed in a cute little corduroy pants, turtle neck sweater vest thing and I didn't take a picture! ....(read… Continue

It's so easy to get caught up on the materialistic aspect that seems to come hand-in-hand with the upcoming holiday season. Seriously? Thanksgiving? I think more people are excited about Black Friday. But let's pause for a moment and really think, what are you thankful for this holiday season?

Teach kids About Money At An Early Age

Many would argue that the first 5-years of life are the most developmentally important years in a persons life, both physically and mentally. Of course, as adults, we continue to grow and develop and become the teachers of the younger generation. The earlier argument is based on the idea that no matter how much education and experience you gain as adults, there is something about the teachings from those first years that have been imprinted on our DNA and is difficult to alter.

Our Grandparents Are Our Angels

I am my mothers, still, I am very much my grandmothers child. I was willed this sense that elders are our angels on earth. I would walk behind my grandmother in the pouring rain carrying an umbrella if asked.

Subway Sandwich

Yesterday Ashlyn started rolling around on the carpet whining about her

stomach hurting. She seemed pretty uncomfortable so I decided to let her

do what makes everything better...watching the magical story of

Cinderella.

We were headed down the stairs when she started coughing and then made a

small gagging sound. No sooner had I asked "Ashlyn are you going to

throw up?" when the flood gates opened. I think her vomit sailed through

the air for at least a foot… Continue

Teaching Your Kids How to Be Thankful

This time of the year, I always feel that it is a struggle to keep the focus on families and counting our blessings (opposed to what we want on our Xmas lists, who we're hosting for dinner,etc...)

This is something I'm trying at our house this year:
