No not me. This chick, Amy Glass.
This article popped up on my newsfeed this morning and as Luke was tossing his bananas and cereal onto the dogs back I thought, what a lovely morning read, lets see what she has to say...
One paragraph in and I was both giggling to myself at the stupidity of it all and just letting her words fuel my hate fire for her…Continue

There’s lotsa chat these days about the anti-Facebook movement. People are leaving in high numbers, high schoolers could care less about it, google + is the way of the future, and Instagram and Twitter are here to stay. I confess, I am probably on instagram 10x more than any of the above, it’s where I post the most pictures, and interact the most. I am an insta-holic.
I’m always looking for new and interesting people to follow. Have a cute kid that you do cool things with? Yea, I’ma…Continue

We are expecting baby number two by February third!
My husband works for a machine sales company and I graduated with my paralegal degree last spring and worked as a paralegal for a very short time…Continue

As I mentioned in my previous blog, we have had an increase in calls to our Family Support Line related to children refusing to go to school. If you did not read the previous blog, it would be a good place to start regarding general information on heading off school avoidance in children.
What is school avoidance? The website, Human Illnesses, defined school avoidance as “when children and teens repeatedly stay home from school or are repeatedly sent home from school, because of…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who, as a working mama, associates school holidays with a mad scramble to find someone to watch their child; making phone calls calling in favors, while dropping discreet reminders of something you did for that person in the recent past. Harboring hopes that the person you decide to ask will offer their assistance before you have to resort to begging and making future promises of your services when needed.…Continue

We have had three calls to our Family Support Line in the last month related to children refusing to go to school. It occurred to me that this might be a good topic to address in the blog. In the twenty years that I have been working with children and families, I have noticed that school avoidance seems to rise around the holidays. I believe there are a few reasons for the peak in school avoidance around this time of year. The first is that the semester is finishing up and the stress…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who sometimes gets lost in her daily routines, so lost that when the frenzy finally calms down for the day, and she thinks about the world outside of her harmonious home life, she isn't really sure where she fits in anymore. I dream big about the ways I am going to put myself out there for the world, let my talents shine, but then something happens. I pull back at the last minute telling myself I am still trying to put my thoughts in order and I should wait to…Continue
The biggest challenge and struggle in my life right now is not letting my work mess with my head.
I am working full time and although the job in itself would not be that bad, the environment and people make it the wickedest experience. Quite often I ask myself it this all worth it?
Life has evolved in such a way that it’s become a chore. Is the purpose really to spend our life laboring away, (contributing to) producing a surplus of products/services…Continue

If any of you happened to see my Facebook status on Monday you know that I faced a motherhood dilemma.
Scenario; I had asked our kindergartener ½ a dozen times if he placed his lunch in his backpack and to which he replied, yes, each time. So, I drop the kiddos off at school. I get home and go to the fridge to get our 3-year-old a snack and guess what I see in the fridge? His lunch!! Mind you, I asked him like ½…Continue

August is not only the month that most children return to school, but it is also unofficially National Toddler Month. So it seemed appropriate to blog on something related to toddlers this month. Toddlers are defined as children between the ages of one to three. This is my favorite age group. They are those magical creatures that find awe in everything! Everything is new and exciting to them. They are working on figuring out how to assert their independence, but also want to know that they…Continue

What items do I need to pack in my hospital bag when preparing to have a baby? Most new moms tend to over pack their own hospital bag and most of the items that they take with them are safely tucked away in their bag and are not used. Most of the time the hospital will supply your basic supplies such as soap, lotion,…Continue

I am definitely having one of those days where just one cup of coffee just won’t do! Having two kids two and under has its challenges and its blessings. I am still in the process of teaching my toddler how to be gentle with his sister. Its almost like he loves her TOO MUCH! Its a good thing, but I am still teaching him boundaries with his baby sister so that he doesn’t hurt her! …Continue
