That time I got burnt by a sparkler

As the Fourth of July arrives, I am filled with childhood memories of summer: going to camp and catching fireflies, of riding bikes and when Dad fired up the grill because it was too hot for Mom to use the oven every night. I can even remember the one summer there was a lunar eclipse and I was allowed to stay up and watch it.…

You gotta stick with your lie

My son is not a good bluffer. Every time we play UNO, he lets out shouts of  "yes!" and "you guys are going down!" in reaction to the cards that he is dealt. And when I do catch him in a lie, he has at least a dozen little fidgety facial ticks and moves that gives him away.…

Why you are your mother

Somewhere in the ever-growing list of apologies to my Mother, I am making a point. (It's subtle, but it's there.) The point is that my Mom knew what she was doing when she was raising me and that she showed me lots of love and support every day. Those are just a few of the reasons I find myself incorporating some of the things she did into…

Tying the emotions to the memory

Right now, my son remembers lots of stuff. He remembers what we did for his birthday last year and he remembers being in his Nana's wedding when he was two. He remembers games we used to play and trips we've been on. But, he doesn't remember what he had for lunch at school.…

Helping boys remember

A few weeks ago, I thought my memory could use some work. But after talking with some friends about my memory gaps, I've determined that I have a pretty good memory. I can remember little details around my childhood; lectures that I attended in college and loads of details about my time with my wonderful husband.…

It's 3 pm, and I can't remember what I'm supposed to be doing

For months, I've become interested in my son's memories: What will his first long-term memory be? What memories from this age will he retain?



But at some point, I've realized that I've started losing some of my memories. I…

The Way We Remember

After I posted 50 Facts, a friend mentioned to me that she didn't know if she could write one herself. And it got me thinking in tangents about things I thought about writing here a while back when I had little time to blog but plenty of inner-chatter to chat out, if you know what I mean.



I explained to her that truthfully, that list of 50 took me a few years to complete. A little idea jumping out here and there on occasion, and…

The childhood memories that fade

My son is telling me a story. It is a story about a day he spent just with me because Daddy was on a motorcycle trip. He tells me about the fun that we had during the day, including doing yoga together, making some blueberry oatmeal bars, cleaning the house, playing some board games together and then reading a new book together.



There was nothing special about the day - it was just a normal Saturday, but here's the thing: It's accurate. All the events he describes to me were…

Uploading history to the family cloud (Or, that didn't happen to you, honey)

My husband and I have been together for 17 years. And during that time, we've shared a wonderful son, a collection of amazing travel photos and a series of shared memories. We share those memories even when we don't mean to.…

I'm afraid to leave this room

So, I am afraid to leave this room before I finish writing up this blog post. I am afraid that leaving the room will make me forget what I am writing about. But more on that in a moment.…

Things I've Learned This Week

** Cramps and mammograms are just two of the many perks (*ahem*)  of being a woman.

** I'd rather be a wrinkled mess than pull out an iron.

** Kids and husbands have very selective hearing.

** Getting in bed early to read a book didn't kill me after all.

Things I've Learned This Week

** Judging from Beyonce, Manti T'eo, and Lance Armstrong, fake things apparently happen in threes.

** The media sure knows how to beat a news story to death.

** My ass is eternally grateful for the genius who invented seat heaters.

** Women supposedly look their ugliest at 3:30 PM on Wednesdays.

** The people who…

The True Meaning of Christmas

As a kid, it's hard to see the big, wide world outside your own tiny bubble of existence.  (Heck, it's not easy even as an adult sometimes!)  That's why I've made it my mission to try to teach my kids to help out people in need.  And one of my favorite holiday traditions for our family is to help fulfill the Christmas wish list of a child in need.

For the past…

Snake in the Grass

I took Henry to our family farm this weekend so Dada could have some

"quiet-time" and so Papa could have some time with his grandson. Two birds with

one stone. Excellent.



The truth is, I love to see Henry, decked out in

his ripped & torn "barn jeans" and John Deere-green hat that says "Future

Farmer," trudging down the lane between the farmhouses or stalking across the

hayfields.

He's just so determined to "help" on the farm and I love how he…

Hey You, Whoever You Are....





As I've said before, I'm convinced that motherhood kills your brain cells.  It's certainly done a number on my memory cause I can't seem to get anybody's name straight in my household.  I don't know how the hell that Duggar family does it when I can't even keep track of the four of us!

Back when I was a teacher, I was…

In Memory of My Mother I am Going to Plant a Tree

My mother suddenly passed away four years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her dearly. Losing my mother, even though I was in my 40′s, felt like I was being abandoned. I felt a sense of loss that was so paralyzing. I was left unable to take care of myself or make a single decision on my own. I could not fathom that she was actually gone. I would often pick up the phone on Sunday to call her, since that was our standing phone date after my father passed…
