Yet Another Reason Why I'm THE Queen of Embarrassing Moments

I think we've all learned by now that I am THE queen of embarrassing moments.  Lord knows I've certainly had way more than my fair share of 'em.  And if I hadn't figured out how to laugh at myself a long, long time ago, well, I'd sure as hell be living in a ditch somewhere with a bag over my head by now.  Luckily, though, I just dust myself off and move on with the show,…

Forgotten Lunch

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…

Driving the Facebook Minivan

With Elliott’s birthday and her attaining the magical age of 13, we finally let her have a Facebook account.

According to her, we were mean parents and made her wait until she “legally” could have an account.  This made for some mad feelings on her part because all of her friends had accounts and she…

5 Things to Learn from a Mama Cat

Recently, Zombie Kitty became a mom to 4 beautiful Zombie Kittens. The runt ended up dying after a few days, with left us with 2 ginger kittens and a black and white kitten. I've been watching Bones with her babies for the last few weeks, and realized that there's much to be learned from a Mama Cat.

  1. When the kids are hungry, feed them. I have watched the Zombie Kittens run up to Mama Bones and tackle her to the ground to nurse. At first she used to fight them for a few…

Myth Buster: The Perfect Balance

Balancing work and home life is what we all strive for: we multi-task, we organize, we cut to the chase, we learn the tricks.  But you know what?  Having that perfect balance is an urban myth. 



 

Let’s think about this for a minute.  Balancing by its nature is risky business.  Tightrope walkers balance, gymnasts balance, window washers balance.  This isn’t for everyone.  Sure most…

Children Learn What They Live

 

Sometimes as adults we get caught up in the busyness of everyday living and children can take this very personally. We may notice that suddenly, there are behaviors that we can't explain. Sometimes 'bad behavior' is merely a way for children to tell us they need some quality time with us.

 

Here are some…

I'LL BE THERE: What Lesson Should Be Learned From The Life & Death of Michael Jackson?

As we watch Michael Jackson’s family walk into the courthouse during the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, we are again reminded that our hopes and dreams are often wrapped up in our children…all they will do and all they will achieve.  How proud we’ll be.  The problem is that we’ve gotten so wrapped up in the infinite “checklist” of what they are doing, or should be doing, that we don’t really know HOW they are doing today, let alone who they’ll be and what they’ll be doing tomorrow. “My kids are…
