Finding Your Happy Place

So, today I'm beaming. Someone has nominated The Inklings of Life for the eCollegeFinder Top Parenting Blog award. This honor actually comes at an amazing time in my life, because I've been thinking of going back to college in the spring to pursue a paralegal degree. Funny how life works sometimes.



In my acceptance email, they asked me for a few words of advice for their student parents. Considering I've been giving thought myself to…

Paper Airplanes From The Heart

______________________________________________________________

 

Bedtime in my house is a huge, old never-ending pain in my ass.  I keep hoping and praying that we'll FINALLY turn the corner where my kids realize that, holy shit, sleeping actually kinda rocks!!  But, sadly, we haven't even come close to that point in our journey together. …

What Makes You a Mommy Master?

I often get asked what the definition of a Mommy Master is.  The answer actually lies within oneself since everyone has a different definition of what make them a successful parent.  Let me start off by saying that no one is truly a Mommy Master every day of their life. Some days we succeed at motherhood and other days, not so much.  There are times when we feel on top of the world because our kids ate all their vegetables, listened, napped and said please and thank you without prodding. …

Zombie Children Everywhere!

I want to start this post of with a disclaimer: I have not met your kids, I am not a doctor, this post is simply my opinion on the subject, and if it offends you, I apologize now, but it's how I view a topic that is very dear to me.  Now, onto the post.



I work in photography during the day; One of those cookie cutter portrait studios with the major advertising in every parenting magazine you pick up. I love my job, I do. I get to work with kids all day, I get to "capture…

THEE Answer to all my child raising issues!

One of the best things I learned that helped me dramatically through the years of raising my beautiful daughters and now helping with my amazing grandchildren is reiki (ray-key). In 1985 a friend of mine talked me into taking a Reiki I class. She convinced me that it would help the learning disabled students I worked with - so I took the class which was held at her home in Boulder, Colorado.

Well I can tell you that was a…

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…
