Blogging Mom Shellie Loses Little Son to Drowning Accident

A few days ago, a little boy died. He wasn’t even three years old, and apparently he died by drowning in the family’s pool, right in front of his mother’s eyes.



I am sick to my stomach about this. I don’t know this family, I don’t know the whole story, but as a mother I can’t even fathom what his mother must be going through right now. Her life will never be the same. Instead of judging her or this tragedy in any way, I am sending only compassionate thoughts her way.



I… Continue

From Frumpy to Fabulous

Don’t you hate it when you run the grocery store, bolting out of the house just as you are, in mom mode: hair frazzled, clothes askew, and no makeup on. Of course, Murphy’s Law kicks in and you run into your boss, ex-boy-friend or arch nemesis from that group of perfect/pretty moms.

More often than not, I find myself underdressed and less made up than I was before kids, and even though I wouldn’t change a second of my mom life… I do kinda wish I… Continue

A Vegas Mom Vacation at Mandalay Bay

I landed in Las Vegas after catching the red-eye flight for a long weekend with some of my friends. I left home in the middle of the night, already feeling tired from being up with my three year old daughter for the past three nights due to a fever. I felt some remorse about leaving her with her dad to go to Sin City, but I knew she was in good hands. I arrived in Vegas feeling pretty tired and didn’t know how I was going to survive in the city that never sleeps.



The last time I had… Continue

Paper,Bills,Clutter Oh My!!

You’rwoman-billse a busy mom; you have to shuffle school work, doctor notes, work papers, bills, etc… Papers, papers, papers!!! I want to focus on one section of your many papers… “your bills”. When you get your bills what do you do with them? Do you put them in a box, bin, desk or the nearest open space? Pick your poison, and I did them all, then would sort them, mark due dates on calendars, and then file them in designated files. Ideally this would look nice and neat, but did I forget to… Continue

Road Trip Revelations

Recently my hubby Chris and 15-year-old son Josh took a road trip across the state together. It was a long drive, and at one point Chris said to Josh, "I'm getting tired here, I need you to talk to me for a while."

Josh dutifully unplugged himself from his iPod and asked, "What do you want to talk about?"



"I dunno," Chris said yawning. "Um…why don't you tell me the first thing you'd like to do when you get your driver's… Continue

You have a voice. What are you going to do with it?

from my post on Mom Spark...



When tragedy hits, people band together, but when times are uneventful, people gossip, backstab, and hate. It happens in the workplace, families, and, of course, the blogging community. I often feel discouraged and disappointed from it all, and often wonder why we indulge in tearing others down?



The blogging…

Confessions of a Breast Feeder

I have wonderful things to say about breastfeeding. In fact here are my top 5 reasons why I like breast feeding



•It lets you bond with your child

•It is cheaper than formula

•You give your child the antibodies they need

•It is the perfect food for your child

•It helps you lose the baby weight





You see … nothing but great things to say. Of course my sister in law holds the record … between her two children she has been nursing for 5 years… Continue

I Write Love Letters and Save Them

I write love letters to my sons. I save them after they’ve read them, in the back of their sock drawers. They resurface when it’s time to do laundry and get buried again when we put the clothes away.



I file away artwork. The large pieces are in a suitcase in the basement, up off the floor in case the ten-year old hot water heater decides to blow, or the plumbing explodes while we’re out of town. I’ve heard about that happening. It only happens when you’re not home.



Their… Continue

The Field Trip

A field trip to Publix (grocery) and the Fire station (I’ll talk about the Fire Station in my next post) didn’t sound like too much fun. But I volunteered to go and help out. I go at least 2-3 times a week to Publix what could my children possibly learn? First stop, get your plastic bag for all the goodies that publix had for us. We started in the pharmacy and this lady had 2 large prescription bottles. She asked for volunteers and then asked the first child to try and open the cap off of the… Continue

I Love To Laugh...At Everything...

I'm always looking for that place I can go to feel supported, cared for and happy. Who doesn't want that? But I work from home. I live in a town that is not very accepting of outsiders. I've only lived in KY for 4 years. I don't know many people and don't have a lot of friends here. I have friends back in my home state of California, but they are very far away and very busy.



So I thought I'd take up a quest to find a group of supportive friends online. Thinking about what kind of… Continue

How the routines had helped me win my daughter back

This post is actually a part of my blog on how I win my daughter's back from her attachment to her nanny.



As a Career Mom, I only have about 45 minutes in the morning and 1 hour at night to be spent with my daughter. During the day, she spends more that 12 hours with her nanny.



At first, I was so… Continue

“Be The Media” And Make a Living Doing What You Love!

Are you an entrepreneur, artist, blogger, musician, or writer who wants to make a decent living? You can! I already blogged about how I heard David Mathison speak about using social media to market what you are passionate about and to use social media to your advantage. His book, Be The Media, goes into much detail about how you only need 1000 true fans to make a decent living. That seems entirely doable!



Be The Media is one of those book you want all of your family and… Continue

A Star is Born on the Internet...Literally!

Have you heard about the woman who's going to give birth live on the internet? That's right, according to Boston.com, Lynsee (that's two "E's"), a 23 year-old teacher from Minneapolis, is going to bring forth her 1st child live on camera for the whole world to see.



Am I shocked? Not really. Grossed out a bit, but not shocked. She's going to famous. Really, really famous...for like half a day...maybe longer if she goes for the Petocin. Now who doesn't want that?

Halloween Tricks and Contest Treats

Halloween falls on a Saturday this year- what a bonus for working moms! No need to race home from work to take your children door to door. No need to feel guilty that you can't make it home until past dark. Halloween is on Saturday this year- what a wonderful thing! My son is of the age where he thinks it's hysterical to dress up like a cheerleader and actually convinced me to buy him the outfit. Pom poms and all. My daughter, on the other hand, had her mind set on being Hannah Montana which… Continue

Devastating News

I just received some devastating news. My son informed me he is not going trick-or-treating this year! It was bad enough when my daughter stopped.



I’m having déjà vu. This reminds me of how I felt when my daughter was 2-1/2 years old and I learned that naptimes didn’t last forever. Ridiculously, it had never occurred to me that my child would actually grow older and not require that down time any more—regardless of the fact that mommy still… Continue

I Was the Last to Know

You know what’s sad and funny at the same time? It’s when you discover that something you believed to be true about yourself, beyond a shadow of a doubt, isn’t true at all. It’s especially funny when that thing you believed was flattering, like a special talent you thought you naturally possessed, but, in fact, was non-existent. What’s worse is once you discover the unspeakable truth you can’t help but take inventory, remembering all the times you shared that “talent” publicly. The feedback you… Continue

Top 10 Reasons You Couldn't PAY Me to Have Another Kid

This post could very well get me unfollowed on Twitter. Mommy bloggers all over are going to read this (this assumes, of course, that I have that many readers) and say "See? It's women like that who don't deserve a child." Look, I'm just one of those women who knows her limitations. I have one very awesome daughter and absolutely no wish to roll that particular set of dice again. Nope. I know when to fold and walk away from the table. And don't ask me about these gambling metaphors either.… Continue
