Step Back or Forward?

Last night was my fourth night at weaning Izzy from the middle of the night nursing. On the third night there was no crying or asking for the boob she just had a little trouble falling back to sleep. I was hoping, praying and crossing my fingers that last night would be at least the same or better. I was sadly mistaken. I recently put my foot down to wean Izzy by her second birthday which is less than a month away. The only times she nurses is before bed, before a nap and during the night. You… Continue

Why you should let your kids snack

I am a big believer in snacking.  It all started when I was pregnant with my little girl I've continued to keep up that eating style and found it really works for both of my kiddos.  Less mood swings and tantrums equals a happier family overall and it helps me get them to eat more food groups over the course of the day.



But I know that not everyone is as mad about snacking as I am.  Some people think that it takes away from eating balanced meals and adds a lot of uncounted calories to… Continue

Two More Days...But Who's Counting?

Two more days until the girls go back to school.  Less than 48 hours in a summer that hasn’t been very much fun. 

It has been the summer of RADishes, a three month struggle to help our daughters maneuver through the trials of reactive attachment disorder.  At times, it has been a nightmare.

J is Afraid Of His Room...

I remember as a child lying in my room with my covers up to my chin, just staring around at the darkness. I was afraid of the dark for a long long time. Not sure what prompted the monsters in the dark fear, but it was there and still to this day, if I watch a scary movie, my mind moves to the worst possible scenario when I'm turning out the lights for the night.



My son, two, hasn't ever been afraid of anything. Not a lot of toddlers are unless something tells them to be afraid. Many… Continue

"My House, My Rules" - My Mother's Philosophy

I was just having a conversation with my mother today about her philosophy, "My house, My rules." I have had the privilege of being on both sides of that fence. As a kid growing up in her house, I dealt with having to live by her rules as most of us have while living with our parents. Some rules I agreed with and others I didn't, but it didn't matter if I agreed or not because I was living in herhouse with her rules. Now I'm a mother living in my own home…

High Fives To My Husband

 

Unlike the back-assward days of the 1950s, I, for one, do not always believe that Father knows best.  However, as much as it might pain me, I've gotta give credit where credit is due.  And sometimes, every once in a blue moon, my husband actually comes up with a semi-brilliant parenting strategy.

 

Like many households, getting our kids ready for bed at night…

How to Be Summer Ready

As summer finally begins to make itself known around here (I know, everyone else is experiencing record highs, right?), last week I found myself feeling outsmarted again by our stuff.



"OK, everyone outside."

"Wait, where's your hat?"

"Do you have sunblock on yet?"

"I don't know. Where IS the sunblock?"

"Who used the sunblock last?!"



I've said it a million times. But here it goes again. My job description oftentimes feels like it must read: 50% SAHM duties /…

Maria's Random Rants - What The !@#$%^& Is Going On Here?

I’m a warrior, a road warrior. Well, among other things. Really. Just hear me out.



Being a family of six limits our options when it comes to travel. Heck, being a family of six limits us financially in several respects, because as you can guess six times any dollar amount usually equals much more than most people can afford.

 

Hence, over the last few years this family has become a band of road warriors, trekking it across…

Maria's Random Rants - The Price We Pay

The dictionary defines guilt as “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, or wrong, whether real or imagined.” Real or imagined, that sounds about right. Might even be more accurate, at least helpful, if they added a footnote, “Warning: Duration of guilt known to last several years. Atonement not guaranteed.” Now that’s the kind of guilt I know. Come to think of it, I didn’t know there was another kind.

 

It’s taken me a while, but I’m fairly proud of…

Sometimes Money CAN Buy You Happiness

 

When your kids are eerily quiet for any extended period of time, nine times out of ten it's because they're trying to burn your house down.  But every once in a blue moon, the stars all align, and the pip squeaks somehow actually manage to..... *gasp*..... play quite nicely together.  Sure, you might have to pay them for that momentary bit of peace and quiet, but we…
