Nice Things You Say That Annoy Me

When we have our babies, it is natural to transform into “mama bear”, stopping at nothing to defend and protect. For the mama who has a child facing additional challenges, this instinct goes into overdrive. Having a child with autism has made me respond to certain comments irrationally. I can be oversensitive – even when comments are said in kindness or without any intention of harm.

That is my disclaimer. If you’re curious about what common…

Interview: Baby Cuisine Cookbook 6/3

Thursday, June 3rd I was able to sit down with Shane and Chantal Valentine, founders of Alina’s Cucina, and ask them about their new book "The Baby Cuisine Cookbook". It’s a beautiful book with a lot of recipes the whole family will enjoy, as well as babies from 6 months old. I tried their hummus and it was actually tasty with the olive oil, garlic, salt, and lemon.

My Bad

Can you imagine saying something mean to that cute face? I did and it didn’t feel good.

Mornings around our house are always hectic. The other day, my five-year-old woke up excited that the long awaited kindergarten trip to the fire station had arrived. The best part – I was going along as a classroom volunteer. She is a real mama’s girl, so that was a pretty big deal in her little world.

This particular kid is a bit of a fashionista.…

prom queen





I am looking forward to summer vacation this year! Not because it signifies my children's cognitive advancement or because the weather is warmer and the hours are better. I am happy mostly in that it means I have survived my daughters first year of homecoming, prom and Christmas formals.…

The Not So Perfect Mommy Moment



I'll admit when it comes to parenting I strive for perfection. I try very

hard to give my kids the best that I can. I send them to a good school. I

make sure they eat right. Physical activity is also a big part of their

lives.



Sometimes I work too hard at becoming the "perfect mom," and it backfires. Last night was a… Continue

It's My Birthday and I'll Blog If I Want To!

I am home when I should be at work. My son is sick and he should be at school. This isn't the birthday of my youth (good weather, parties to attend, new clothes to wear...) more like what a birthday is for mothers!



I'm taking it in stride though, vacuuming, reading Facebook and blogging! Enjoying this impromptu day, hoping for a quick recovery!

Update to "Battle Royale"

Let me update you on all the baby momma drama that’s going on in our lives at the moment. It’s relatively quiet after the last fiasco. She hasn’t pulled more shizit.

The latest court date was scheduled for last week, but a big case came through and bumped hubby’s case from the docket. Good thing the lawyer told us this before 6 a.m. that morning so I didn’t stay up until 11 p.m. the night before looking for hubby’s 2008 tax return paperwork – or not.

Contest for a free membership in FamZoo - Fun Financial Management for Families

I have previously written about how important it is to prepare our

children, especially once they become teens, to money management
.

Since schools don't teach this, we must. I recently tried out a new

program called FamZoo and think it is a wonderful way for parents

and their children, tweens or teens to work… Continue

Giving Kids What They Don’t Want

I posted a blog recently about the value of saying “No” to kids. The gist was:

1) Your kids will be fine if they don’t get what they want all the time.

2) If you’re going to say “No” then be sure to follow through – unless you like to lead the double life of parent and white noise machine.

I just discovered another good time to say “No”– when it comes to buying them nice things. Ya know why? Because they don’t…
