Sometimes my mom let us eat cake for breakfast. (Maybe "let us eat cake" is the wrong phrase. Maybe I should say "turned a blind eye while we devoured leftover cake.") It wasn't often, but it's something I have vivid and fond memories of from my childhood. (Now that I think about it, I am pretty sure she was eating that cake with us. So, thanks, Mom!)
So, I think of that…Continue

I cannot be the only one...whose family is not known for being list makers, no to do list, no grocery list, and absolutely, positively no Christmas lists. I know this sounds silly, how could we possibly expect to receive any gifts we really love if we don't let people know what it is we want, but we never take the time to sit and put pencil to paper to create a list. My family's aversive attitude towards holiday wish list is going to have to change because I have somehow become the PR…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who hates to sound like a Scrooge, but sometimes when a thought gets in this old head of mine I have to go with it, no matter how curmudgeonly it is, such as my displeasure with Sonny Boy's school holiday boutique. I am sure you are wondering how could something as genial, warm, and inviting as a kid friendly holiday shopping event be annoying, we'll let me explain.…Continue

As a mom, I constantly rely on my cell phone to stay in connected with my older children especially when they stay at home alone, with their friends, or while they are participating in their own activities alone.

Are you need some great gift ideas for your baby this Christmas? As you know babies don’t need very many toys, especially during the first four months. Once your baby turns 4 months old, he or she will need to begin spending time on their tummy to help develop their motor skills and strengthen their core muscles. Even if your child isn’t quite ready to play with the toys, babies are always interested in looking around and exploring objects around them. Playtime is also a great way…Continue

Shopping last minute has it's downside. Last minute shopping at Wal-Mart is just plain horrific. This is my story about December 23rd at a local Wal-Mart. I saw shoplifting, child abuse, butt cracks...

I can only imagine that every member of my family just read the title and clicked on it so fast thinking I was writing a post about them! Slow your hearts down… I’m writing to all the mamas and friends who have written me over the course of this month. I’m at a stand-still right now with nothing to do. That’s right… NOTHING. It feels odd and I’m a little out of place. I have nothing to bake or cook, nothing to wrap, nothing to clean and only 1 basket of laundry to fold. SO I guess, as…Continue

This is a very difficult post for me to write. But I am hoping that if any of my readers is facing a similar situation, you will know that you are not alone. My heart goes out to you. 25 years ago today, I received a phone call at work that would forever change my life.
This day started a four day ordeal of doctors, nurses, specialists......and tears. Buckets upon buckets of tears. My almost 11 month old baby boy was gone, one week before what would have been…
