Surrounded By Beauty

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

 

I used to live in San Diego, California, quite possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world and without question the most beautiful place I have ever lived.  My life then was lazy and chaotic, rocking Uggs and flip flops, exploring mountains and deserts and beaches.  But the most central part of my casual life in SoCal…

When Your Child Hates You

. . . I sit there with tears in my eyes and my heart breaking. I love these girls. All I want is the best for them. How can they hate me? How can they turn against me for the sake of "hanging out and dating"? It's not easy to dedicate your life to someone's welfare. I struggled so much for them. True, they didn't… Continue

Raising Healthy Kids

  • Introduce good eating habits early in your children’s life.
  • Pay attention to your children’s weight as he or she grows. Be sure to discuss your children’s situation with your pediatrician or other healthcare provider.
  • Let your children learn to respond to internal hunger cues rather than learned social ones. Don’t worry if your kids don’t eat as much as you think they should.
  • Encourage your children to be physically active. Remember that not all physical…

The Surprise Baby

People say that I’m brave for having six kids. My take is that it’s nothing compared to those crazy mamas whose kids are out of the baby stage when they go and immerse themselves right back into it. Imagine ditching diaper bags, sleepless nights and poopy bottoms only to return to them several years later. At…

Family Unplugged: The Results Show

It is now 10 p.m. on Sunday evening. I have officially been "disconnected" for 24 hours, and I am ready to once again join the virtual world.



In case you missed my previous post, I was inspired by the Australian mom who made her family disconnect from all electronic devices for six months. So I made my family unplug for one day. We were not allowed to watch TV, play video games or use the computer all day. I… Continue

Dinner is Done! Meal Assembly Kitchens

The meal prep/assembly shop concept has been around for a while. But I had personally never experienced it before. Why would I, I thought? Our family understands the value of family dinners and we do all sit down to dine together at least 4 times a week. And I know how to cook and – most of the time – enjoy it. Why would I ever need a meal prep service?…

How Can I Help?



And in desperate times, you look to older siblings for help!



With the recent death of both grandpas, I was left feeling like I needed a bit of help and support. I had six jetlagged kids up at random hours (some with fevers),…

Attention Children: The Bathroom Door Is Closed

Please do not stand here and talk, whine, or ask questions. Wait until I get out.



Yes, it is locked. I want it that way. It is not broken. I am not trapped.



I know I have left it unlocked, and even open at times since you were born, because I was afraid some horrible tragedy might occur while I was in there, but it's been 10 years and I want some PRIVACY.



Do not ask me how long I will be. I will…

For All Moms

We are sitting at lunch when my daughter casually

mentions that she and her husband are thinking of

"starting a family."



"We're taking a survey," she says, half-joking. "Do

you think I should have a baby?"



"It will change your life," I say, carefully keeping

my tone neutral. "I know," she says, "no more

sleeping in on weekends, no more spontaneous

vacations...."



But that is not what I meant at all. I look at my

daughter, trying to… Continue

Whats Important

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, When 24 hours in a day is not enough; remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.



A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and start to fill it with golf balls.



He then asked the students if the jar was full.

They agreed that it was.



The…

Word Art

As crazy as the holidays get, one thing I really enjoy doing over the winter break is collaborating with Munch to make art for the family. This year I was inspired by the "subway art" I've seen in many DIY blogs.



I began with this- one of several paintings Munch did a couple of summers ago when she was just beginning to explore with paint. I never cared for the muddiness that came from the brown and was just waiting to paint over it.… Continue

How to Breathe LIFE Back into Your Marriage

Does your marriage feel like it needs resuscitating? Maybe it’s time to breathe some LIFE back into your relationship:

L = Laugh. Your husband still wants to have fun with you. Take time to do things together. Enjoy one another. Smile. Laugh.

I = Intercede. Couples who pray together stay together. The rate of divorce drops to less than 1% among husbands and wives… Continue

Flying with kids- What goes around comes around

In the past week I have read a few stories about traveling with kids and the disparity between those who travel with them and those who don’t. Of course the latter group is highly against the former being anywhere near them when they're traveling, especially flying . We parents know that most kid-less travelers wish our families would take a kids-only airline somewhere or better yet, stick to the back of the plane with a sound proof partition around us. We get it. They’re looking for a…
