A Terrorist Plot Unveiled…

It’s a tragic story. A community up in arms, frightened for their children, as one small body after another turns up. Flattened like pancakes. Stiff, furry tails sticking straight up in the air, a grim marker of a senseless death. You see them every day, littering the streets & sidewalks, while mothers scurry past shielding the eyes of the innocent children in tow, hoping to protect them from such a horrific sight. Along the grassy boulevards, little furry sentinels keep watch, like an…

Back to School and Back to Blogging!

What a crazy, CRAZY month September has been! Almost 3 weeks ago, my daughter finally started Kindergarten and, can I just say, that I don't think I have ever been this busy, nor have I ever second guessed myself more in my life than I have now?



It all started with some busing issues (courtesy busing cut due to state budget cuts. Had to pay a $398 fee!), and then between fundraisers (more payouts. Eek!), and helping Raelyn adjust to going to school 5 days a week (never mind the BOTH… Continue

The Golden Rule…

I’m no stranger to the wonderful world of Kindergarten. This is my fourth foray in to the realm of refrigerator art, trips to the farm, & agonizingly annoying Letterland characters. And as many of you know, I have not taken kindly to having to send my last wee baby off to school this fall. Aside from the obvious reasons that any mother can relate to, there is another, far more compelling, reason as to why I was loathe to put her in the hands of the educational system. Those bastards…

Mom vs. Herself…

The biggest thing I’ve learned as a parent, is the biggest thing I struggle with the most as a parent. Because it demands that I engage in a constant inner struggle with the very fabric of my being. Here’s the lesson…BEFORE I give in to my immediate reactions, stop & ask myself: are MY opinions/actions/decisions what’s best for THEM?? It’s usually not…thus the struggle. Having to back down, bite my tongue, stay out of it, go with the flow, often requires a massive dose of happy pills…

I'm Happy. I'm Sad.

Today was the day for my girls to return to school. I now have a 7th grader and a 4th grader.

Yes I'm happy to be back into the routine of a some-what quieter day (and I'm happy that I get the computer to myself!), but I'm also sad that they aren't here. That they are growing up... growing up so fast! 7th grade?! How in the heck did my oldest reach 7th grade already?!?

*heavy sigh*

I still feel like hanging outside their classrooms, waiting to see…

Belted Freedom

Hunter is having a little problem with her daily bus ride. Evidently she doesn’t feel the need to sit in her seat while she is on the bus. Since the girls both ride the same bus everyday, we gave them permission to tell us if anything happened on the bus…it wouldn’t be considered tattling. I don’t like tattling.…

My Bad…

It’s not in my nature to apologize. I rarely see a need for it, when I’m always in the right. But as I once again find myself spiralling down in to the second gaping pit of depression to tear open the streets of Crazy Town in recent months, I’ve simply found it far too difficult to type while clinging for dear life on the edge of the precipice. Frankly, I can barely maintain my tenuous grip on my sanity, never mind my keyboard. This, of course, means that I have sorely neglected my Mayoral…

Why I chose public school

Last year at this time, I was tearing my hair out, in tears trying to figure out where Isaac was going to school for kindergarten. He had just come out of an amazing integrated preschool, where he had been for 3 years. I wasn't handing my crazy boy off to just any school. I had only a few weeks left to make a choice. I had options for Isaac to go to private school, public school or even… Continue

Moms transition into back to school mode- Are you ready??- Previous Post

Yes it's that time again...Back to School. In some parts of the country like mine, kids returned to school as early as August 2nd. Needless to say I home schooled last year and it was a neat experience

but this year the kids returned to traditional school. Both my kids

have been actually really excited and today I walked my son to 3rd

grade. His teacher seems nice, and my daughter went to 8th grade and we

almost got lost finding some of her classes.

Moms.. I don't… Continue

Lessons to Mom

It is a goal of mine to teach my children to be nice. To be kind to others, respectful of others and accepting of others. I want them to say please, thank you, your welcome, and yes sir officer, I know I was going too fast. I have always believed that a person goes a lot further with a kind word than a snide remark or sarcastic blathering.



I said I believed it, not that I practiced it!



I will say, head hung in shame, that that I am not the best example to my children on… Continue

Back to School/Back to Frantic? Here’s help in the kitchen… Six Ways to Get Kids to Try New Foods

For most parents, finding ways to encourage their picky eaters to try and enjoy new foods is a top priority. In fact, a recent survey showed more than 68 percent of registered dietitians who counsel new parents frequently receive questions about getting finicky eaters to eat at mealtime. And now, faced with a new school year, busy parents need more help than ever to ensure a nutritious, fast and convenient solution.



To help parents conquer mealtime battles,… Continue

Losing Control of What Your Child Eats

I took Elle and Bunny to the doctor the other day for their annual back to school physicals. Both girls are healthy and Bunny spent 20 minutes entertaining her pediatrician with her unique style, all the while lounging on the exam table with a paper gown draped around her like a sarong...this by the way has never happened before, I have never… Continue

I Really Do Love My Husband, but Sometimes He’s Just an Idiot

My husband is a pretty bright guy. He nearly pulled a 4.0 getting his MBA, he’s pretty knowledgeable on world finances, political issues, economics, blah blah blah, and he’s the only person who managed to finally explain the game of football to me so that I could actually understand it.…
