If today were three months ago, I would have said “I’m so happy to find so many moms just like me.”
Today…today I can’t say that, because it saddens me. Two weeks ago I wrote a post about the big blogger butt blues.
I won’t lie, I’m happy that so many commented, but I’ve got to tell you, at the same time, reading through the comments, breaks my heart.
So many women, dwelling in the land I lived for 4 years. A land that where everyone but me came…Continue

I am in love with my new Bella Cucina donut maker. What is it about donuts that we love so much? That sweet shape promises us something sinful. In this case, it's not so sinful. It's just waffles but the kids think it's a special day when we have donuts for breakfast.…Continue

I was in the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and I over heard a conversation between a mother and her (maybe) 5 year old son. They were standing next to a large display of asparagus in the middle of the produce section. Here's what I heard:
Boy: Mom, what's that?
Mom: It's Asparagus.
Boy: Can we get some?
Mom: No, Asparagus is yucky.
This small interchange really stuck in my craw. It took all my will power to keep myself from rushing the asparagus…
