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!!!



Does that look like the face of a High Schooler??? NO! Of course it doesn't. He's not OLD enough to be in high school! He's just 1, damn it! He's my baby! How can he be going into 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

Kids Are Amazing: What Has Your Child Done Lately?



Hunter is 16 months old now, and I'm simply amazed at how fast he's growing, learning, doing.





No longer does my little man wake up crying. He now sits up and carries on baby babble conversations with his favorite cushy -soft stuffed animal, Winnie the Pooh. This morning I decided to hang out in bed to listen to him for a few extra minutes. I was shocked, to say the least. Out of his mouth, clear as day, came "Winnie the… Continue

Huge Veggies!

Just wanted to share this with others, these are coming from my Dad's garden.

A 2.5lb tomato and a 19" zucchini, anyone top that?



I hate to say it, but I'm sick of eating squash and tomatoes. LOL

Happy Summer.…

Rewards of Motherhood: A Mother's Day Edition

As it’s getting closer to Mother’s Day I am doing a lot of thinking about motherhood. Just as with the stages of pregnancy, it changes and shifts as we move through each new stage and phase of our fetus/infant/toddler/child/tween/teenager… ah heck, baby’s life.



I have recently come across two books on UrbanBaby.com that echo my own parenting style: Rattled! by Christine Coppa and Bad Mother by Ayelet Waldman. They are both written by witty, honest women who openly share the full… Continue

My Mother...

What can I say about the most wonderful woman on this planet. Other than I am so VERY grateful that she is mine. She will be turning 75 this September, and whats so funny is that its taken so much time to see her as anything but what I remember her always being. Its been a tough 4 years, but the progression continues. One more time, God shows me that he won't give me anything I can't handle. She has lived a pretty healthy life so I haven't had the experience of taking care of her. But she has… Continue

And then what did you think?

Taylor's favorite phrase to say to me, is: "And then what did you think?" Well that, and the phrase: "No Mom, I don't want to do that right now. Here's the plan, I'll do what I want to do first and then I'll do what you want me to do. Okay Mom?"



Which brings me to my first point.



I used to think I was patient until I had kids. But now...



Well, I find it's my struggle every single day. I have to BREATHE. Sometimes very… Continue

The Morning: Sat. Nov. 29th 2008

This morning my son Stephen woke me up... I love it when he wakes me up...

I noticed I was actually having a real conversation with him... It was great! My little man is growing up. His vocab is getting so much bigger... He even said the word “Classified”...



Holy cow! I thought, what an amazing sound coming out of a 5 year old.



He is becoming more and more independent... It scares the life out of me... But I enjoy it all the same.







Today is a… Continue

The One Where I Write My Own Eulogy

It’s been a long week, folks.



Jimmy’s service, Grandma’s service and reading the stark words of a fellow blogger who’s just been diagnosed with cancer, I realize that staying positive is more than just a rainbow and kitten-nose outlook on life. It’s really freaking hard work!



I watch the way others cope, not in a judgmental way, but more in a “if that works for them, would it work for me?” introspective way. At… Continue
