My son often tells me that when he grows up he wants to come and work at my job. He has plans to sit in the cube next to mine and be on my team. He also wants to help distribute candy when the team needs a little pick-me-up on rough days and have lunch with me every day.…Continue

I'm annoyed with Valentines day. It just is too dramatic for my liking. The worst part is that it's dramatic in multiple ways. Whether a person expects a thoughtful gift and high level romance or the HATE VALENTINES DAY, IT'S A HALLMARK HOLIDAY.. blah blah person.. Or that you are single 364 days out the year. Yet if on Valentines day you don't have a date, it's some how the worst thing ever?
If you are only affectionate or thoughtful to your spouse 3 days a year. (Valentine's…Continue

As adults, we realize “that kinda love” doesn’t come until much later in life. Do you ever think about your first crush? Being 5 years old and being around that person or persons that made you giggle and feel…Continue

To eat and exercise right will benefit the rest of your day. Mornings begin by turning a light on. And what I do for the rest of the day can keep the light on or burn it out. Giving my morning a generous head start keeps my energy and attitude more positive for the rest of the day. I’m a morning person, but a LATE-morning person. I don’t do wondrous things first thing.
After I wake up, I make a sleepy, quiet trek across the house to the kitchen to start breakfast. I stay in my sleepy…Continue

Jesus said we should become as little children in order to be admitted into his Kingdom. Do you think his directive included a free pass for unbridled expression regardless of our age? Can you imagine if, as adults, we could speak out exactly how we feel unhindered by…Continue

Last weekend’s blizzard was a time of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and self-reflection. Social media provides us with beautiful pictures, exercise demonstrations, inspirational sayings to motivate us to get our sweat on in our baddest, beast mode each and every day.
This weekend I enjoyed posting away while…Continue

I stepped over several books, a Hot Wheels car, and a toy horse to get him there, but I gently laid my snuggly little sleeping boy into his bed and settled the blanket over him. He didn’t even notice, although he did roll over and cuddle down into his pillow a bit more in his…Continue

It has been forever since I have done a flash giveaway. Why a flash giveaway? Because I am overcome with so much gratitude, I need to share the love. Why? Well, this morning I lost my temper with my little Grinch (it is Spirit Week at my kiddos’ school and today is Grinch day in his classroom) because in all his excitement he managed to get green face paint all over his coat, shirt, my bathroom towels, etc. (Yes babe, if you are readying this it was a horrible idea,…Continue

When I found out I was having a boy, I cried. Not beautiful, happy tears, no. I cried ugly, horrendous tears of mourning. I cried because I was not having a girl. That's right: my baby hadn't even left my uterus, and I was already the worst mother in the world.
Before you can comment on…Continue
A lot of mom posts and my posts as well.. are normally about how crazy mom life can be.

Let's take a break from all the craziness today.
First off- a lot of you may know because I've…Continue

The generation gap that exists between parents and children often leads to bitter arguments and fights. Parents don’t often understand the mindset of their children and vice versa. It is important that you show your kids how much you adore and love them (unconditionally) every now and then. Parenting is not an easy job when children want freedom to do whatever, and parents want to keep them safe.
Children are extremely emotional and sensitive.…Continue

Growing up my mother, sister and I were true moviegoers. Every Saturday, we were at the movies and to this day I watch a lot of movies, but not at the theaters as much. Well, I go to the movies, but it’s generally to watch a kids flick. You know how it goes, you have kids and things change. Thankfully, there is the Library(my #1 source), pay per view, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV and so many other outlets that make movies available quickly.
One of my favorite movies is …Continue

Almost every time I visit the beach I stop at Target on the way off the highway. I can see the sign from the exit ramp, and even if I really don't need anything the sign reminds me it is there, so I go.
I go for a few reasons, the first one being snacks.
Things do not stay fresh at the beach for a long time. Yes, I have plastic bags and Lock n Lock boxes, but never enough. My intentions are to find a snack after my long…Continue

It's safe to say that becoming a parent changes things; specifically a marriage. Nine years together, four years married, and two kids later. We argue more than we should, about things that we shouldn't. We go to bed angry at times. A whole day can pass without kissing or hugging. And somehow, we don't have a real conversation for days. But, in the midst of the overflowing laundry, the oatmeal stained faces, the abundance of toys, and the daily tantrums--I still see you & I need you to…Continue

Ever since March 30, 2013 at 12:56pm, our world completely changed. Ella, our first child, had entered the world and has been our little firecracker ever since. I remember having such a hard time in those first few weeks home from the hospital. One of the recurring questions in my mind, and often whispered out loud to myself was, "what the hell did I get myself into, how am I gonna do this??" I thought I was prepared. I truly believed that besides the typical sleepless nights that came with…Continue
