I am trying to get better at not doing things for my son.
For example: He likes to cook, so twice a month, he has to cook dinner for the family. While either my wonderful husband or I will act as his sous chef, we make sure he does the bulk of the work. This gets hard if he claims he has had a "long day"…

Before we get to laundry hacks…
You’ve heard the expression “going postal?”* It means suddenly erupting into an unprovoked fit of rage. A long-time postal worker friend once told me that the reason “going postal” was an occupational hazard was that the mail never ends. You’re never completed the task. It just keeps coming.
Kind of like the laundry. Why is it that the mom of the house typically becomes the CEO of laundry? As if growing humans inside of our bodies, birthing them,…Continue

Although it is not easy to diagnose a problem with the eyes, it is even harder to do so with children, as they tend to pretend as there is nothing wrong with their eyes, or they are too afraid to say anything as they feel ashamed. However, if you notice that they are squinting too much or if they rubbing their eyes frequently, it could be an early sign of something more serious going on, and you should immediately go see a doctor to diagnose what the problem might be.

It seems crazy to me that I always say... I wish my boys would go to sleep so I can clean in peace.. Yet once they are asleep.. I am lazy and want to sit and catch up on Tv. I cant help that I enjoy peace and quiet and no kid cartoons for an hour. Oh what a mom to do?? Especially considering I have work all weekend so I have to find the drive to clean and prepare my kids for the weekend. Working mom jobs are never done! I will rest when Im 90 and my kids are taking care of me!

I'm a people watcher. I always have been, and I absolutely love it. You can learn so much about people by just sitting back and watching them, how they interact, their mannerisms, etc.
In a non-stalker way, thank you. I have no restraining orders... yet.
I took the kids to the pool last night, and while they enjoyed the pool fun, I sat on the sidelines with a book and relaxed. I quickly found that the book was a decoy for the people watching that was about to go down. There…

My oldest child, & only son, is about to turn twelve. That “lazy”, apathetic thing is starting to set in, particularly around the house. As the hormone levels rise, so too, does my annoyance, & I find myself feeling rather pissy about the situation. Now, I’m an intelligent woman, & I’m well aware that tweens & teens are a whole new breed of jackass….just ask my…Continue
