The Sleepover

I've been having a hard time lately with this whole growing up thing that my kids insist on doing.  It's like every time I turn around, they're gaining an inch on me, wanting to run around town with their friends, and begging for a cell phone.  Seriously, what is the rush already??!!  I, for one, am not entirely ready to…

Mother knows best

I wanted to call this post I know best, but thought it might be a bit too presumptuous. So, I disguised myself as a Mother. Which I am. Since getting this honorary title, I have discovered it comes with so many responsibilities. The famous line of from J.F.K. comes to mind, somewhat altered though: "ask not what…

The Magic of the First Snowfall

As much as I loathe winter weather, there truly is something magical about the first snow of the season.  Those white flakes falling gracefully from the sky always bring an unexpected peacefulness in my otherwise chaotic world.  And being able to share that special moment with my kids makes it all that more memorable for me.

We got our first snowy dusting just this…

Three Cheers for the Sandwich Generation

 

 

July is Sandwich Generation Month, a chance to pay tribute to adult children who are juggling the demands of raising kids while taking care of aging parents. The number of Americans 65 and older is projected to increase from 40 million in 2010 to over 88 million by 2050, doubling the ranks of those experiencing this stressful combination of responsibilities.

 

We expect to take care of our growing children.…

The Tooth Fairy will be Coming Soon

The Tooth Fairy Will be Coming Soon!

On Friday Luke and Matt were eating apples.  Matt said "Ow, my teeth hurt!"



Uh-oh, I thought, he's finally going to lose a tooth!  As it turns out, BOTH bottom front teeth are loose and as I looked into his mouth I saw *gasp* that his big teeth are already growing in…

An Unexpected Sappy Post (You’ve Been Warned….)



So I got that old familiar pit in the bottom of my motherly stomach again yesterday.  It happened when I dropped my son off for his first day of Sports Camp.  Yes, it's that same ol' dreaded feeling I seem to get whenever I leave my timid little guy in a strange new environment.  You see, unlike his mama, he's quite the shy type, and it takes every bit of my willpower not to play the…

The Aftermath of the Sleepover

My kids are getting to that dreaded age where every flippin' weekend they beg for a sleepover.  As soon as school gets out on Friday, they start hittin' me up for a party in their pj's.  And I don't know about you, but I am not a big fan of the sleepover, mainly because it ends up biting ME in the ass the next day.

Now my son is not really the issue, since he…

Tame the Beast.

http://myteenagerandtoddler.blogspot.com/2012/01/tame-beast.html



manipulate - vb: to negotiate, control or influence (something or someone) cleverly, skillfully, or deviously.



My kids are masters at building manipulation tactics that work brilliantly when dealing with me. As many of you know, I have the man-boy, who is turning 18 in a few weeks, and the baby girl, who is a three-year-old toddler… Continue

Going on 13

...When people told me to enjoy the moments of her childhood because they grow up too fast, I rolled my eyes. As I first struggled as a single mother, then with her diagnosis of her reactive attachment disorder, there were many times her childhood couldn’t end fast enough.

Happy Fathers Day - Did You Grow Up Without a Father?

Happy Father's Day! It is a sentiment that I have rarely had a chance to express to my own father. He was in and out of my life for many years and when he was in my life, it felt strange to say it. Happy Father's Day seems like a special statement to be reserved for the most special fathers, you know, the ones who were around to change diapers, wipe tears, give great advice, lecture that boy taking me out on my first date,  and walk me down the aisle during my…

Teething! and other happenings

My little guy started teething and its the worst thing in the world. I dont know what to do sometimes and he gets so antsy cause I cant help him. I have tried orajel, teething rings and at times they work but

I guess its something we all have to go through and to be honest I am glad I am home to be able to take care of him and help him through this.

He is a true blessing in my life and I am blessed to he…

Emotional Momma

Whole story here..

Part of becoming a mommy is having to think for someone other than yourself. You have to think what's best for your child, how a decision will affect them now and in the future. I had to make a VERY hard (for both myself and Jaliyah) decision recently, which also contributed to my short absence.



One of the decisions, that I am sure many of us have faced, is whether you and your SO should… Continue

I'm Happy. I'm Sad.

Today was the day for my girls to return to school. I now have a 7th grader and a 4th grader.

Yes I'm happy to be back into the routine of a some-what quieter day (and I'm happy that I get the computer to myself!), but I'm also sad that they aren't here. That they are growing up... growing up so fast! 7th grade?! How in the heck did my oldest reach 7th grade already?!?

*heavy sigh*

I still feel like hanging outside their classrooms, waiting to see…

Bacon? No, it's a tooth!

On our camping trip this past weekend, a momentous occasion occurred: our 6-year-old son, James, lost his first tooth (it’s actually the second tooth that is missing. He knocked the first one out just before he was three). We were riding from our campsite to the pool when I hear, “I lost a tooth!” You did? ”Yeah! I thought it was bacon… Continue

My Baby Will Be In High School!!!

I'm not old enough to have 2 teen agers in high school. And yet, here I am... Barely in my 30's (by barely I mean pushing… Continue

The Trimesters of Life - SAHM Project - Entry Six

Pregnancy and I have a love/hate relationship.



I am not one to have an easy time with pregnancy in the first

trimester. I'm the mama with her head in the toilet, the trash can, the

parking lot of Target, the random grocery bag I find lying in my car.

It's just not a pretty thing. There is no beauty, no poise, no food

left in my stomach. But it is also during this time that I am most

excited at the prospect of this new little life inside of me.



My… Continue

How Boarding School Can Help You Parent a Troubled Teen

Parenting teens is hard enough, but parenting a troubled teen can feel impossible. Most parents simply don’t have the training in psychotherapy techniques, communication skills, and mentoring necessary to guide a teen through the troubled years of adolescence, especially when that teen is also struggling with mental…

Has Blogging Become One Big Chore?

Have you ever looked at your blog’s dashboard and whimpered to yourself, “Oh, I just cannot in any way, shape, or form write a blog post today?”

We have all been there, right? Or, is it just me?

After eight years of blogging I have whimpered that more times than I…
