I always loved summer time as a kid, it meant spending time at the pool and hanging out with my friends on the weekends. While I was growing up, my mom would often invest in a small wading pool for us so that we could swim in the backyard. A wading pool is a small pool that is usually a few feet deep and can fill it up with water so that you can swim…Continue

Starting when Hana was a toddler, I’ve raised her to be very polite and respectful. Hana always uses please and thank you, excuses herself from the table, and asks before taking. Her teachers constantly rave about how obedient and helpful she is in school. I beam when people tell me how well behaved she is and how amazing her manners are. There had been no…Continue

The previous night Rascal had time to make a few bracelets and left a huge mess of beads behind. I decided to move him to the mantel so that the my baby or the puppy wouldn’t get ahold of him. Again, I placed him up on the mantel so that he can watch the kids. We have less than a week left with Rascal and I am already getting sad. He has been a great addition to our family and created a new tradition for my children.
Rascal was excited to go tell Santa Claus that he was able to…Continue

Terrific Tuesday - it is terrific to know solving hunger problems can help you solve life problems.
Today is is World Food day! That means it is a day set aside in order to make people aware of food challenges faced by people around the world. Oxfam has created a GROW campaign to help people who actually care about hunger issues do something to help. The lesson I learned from the Oxfam Grow campaign is that the lessons we learn about food and stopping…

As a parent, I have three jobs. My jobs are to love my children, keep them safe, and to teach them about life. I take my jobs very seriously. So when Hunter walks away from me in a parking lot, I grab her arm and jerk her back to my side. If my yelling makes her cry, maybe she can understand my…Continue

The dictionary defines guilt as “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, or wrong, whether real or imagined.” Real or imagined, that sounds about right. Might even be more accurate, at least helpful, if they added a footnote, “Warning: Duration of guilt known to last several years. Atonement not guaranteed.” Now that’s the kind of guilt I know. Come to think of it, I didn’t know there was another kind.
It’s taken me a while, but I’m fairly proud of…Continue

I'm sure that when many of us think of Mother's Day thoughts of personalized gifts for mom and Mother's Day cards fill our heads. And some of us are even thinking of all the party invitations to Mother's Day related events and dinners that we've received. Yes, believe it or not Mother's Day is a huge deal!! Honestly, I never knew how truly big Mother's Day was until I became a mom myself.
And no it wasn't because of the gifts, the cards or all the kind words I received from husband,…Continue
Recently, DJ got a chance to ride a mechanical bull. As I stood by, I realized it translated to life. Life's like a mechanical bull. It really is. You're on this thing you CAN'T control & all you CAN control is holding on for dear life. And then? Like the bull, you get kicked off sometimes, don't ya? And whatta ya do? Lie on the ground? Run away? Kick the bull? Or...maybe like DJ, we simply get back on. If life's got you riding a…
