See this kid?
He had an incident about a week ago. It all started with a fruit and nut bar sample at Costco. I didn't think much about trying the sample, seeing as Buddy has been exposed to about every nut under the sun. At almost 4, I naively thought we…Continue

The snow is falling outside and all I can do is long for the Spring-like weather of last week. The weather was so mild that I donned my new shoes and went hunting for the signs of Spring in my garden.…Continue

I feel ashamed to admit how often I lose my cool around my children. In all honesty, not losing my cool at least once during the day is a rare exception. Not only do these kids know a great deal about how to push my buttons, but they are also extremely irrational. The combo of the two is a sure fire way to bring out what I call "Mean Mommy."…

If you've been following my blog for any length of time, you know by now that Goatdog and I have a love/hate relationship. Sure, he may look cute and all, but don't let that fool ya for even one little second:
He is the Tazmanian Devil disguised as an Airedale. You'd see just what I mean if you were to watch him in action when someone approaches our front…Continue

I was just having a conversation with my mother today about her philosophy, "My house, My rules." I have had the privilege of being on both sides of that fence. As a kid growing up in her house, I dealt with having to live by her rules as most of us have while living with our parents. Some rules I agreed with and others I didn't, but it didn't matter if I agreed or not because I was living in herhouse with her rules. Now I'm a mother living in my own home…Continue

I think of myself as a pretty creative person, decent at crafting and creating. Apparently my crafting niche does not extend to the making of gingerbread houses however. First, I made the icing way too thin, so it took me 3 days and lots of strategic propping to get the house to stand up. I decided not to even attempt to prop up the chimney, so the kids and I put it aside ate it. Then, I made the decorating icing too thin so most of our candy decorations were…Continue

Do you ever feel, that as the centrifugal force of the house, that mommy’s mood sets the tone for the the whole family? This Blog post came to me a couple of weeks ago, when my girlfriend said, “Can you Blog
about how when we are not good, the rest of our family never feels good?
And how we can pull ourselves out of these slumps?”
So really, what happens if mom’s not happy?…Continue

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named, Bunny. Her parents moved her to the country, without a thought to asking her if she wanted to go, and made her live in a house that had no neighbors to play with, no paved streets to ride her bike on
and that had an army of bugs always on the ready to attack. When she moved to the country, she was
afraid of dogs and horse, but her parents felt the need to fill the house, yard
and pasture with a lot of these…

When I was growing up, my Dad had a rule in our house, when you move away after college; you have to live outside a 500-mile radius of home. OK…don’t ask, but I will say
that when I eventually did move away from home, I did manage to move just
outside the 500-mile radius. The
funny thing was, as soon as I did, Daddy asked me when I was going to move
home. So much for house rules.
