Swimming Pool Safety Tips to Keep You and Your Family Safe This Summer

I always loved summer time as a kid, it meant spending time at the pool and hanging out with my friends on the weekends.  While I was growing up, my mom would often invest in a small wading pool for us so that we could swim in the backyard.  A wading pool is a small pool that is usually a few feet deep and can fill it up with water so that you can swim…

Prevent Heat Related Car Accidents This Summer

Each summer I always cringe when I hear sad stories on the new about parents or daycare workers accidentally leaving a child inside of a hot car, in some cases the child was only left alone few minutes.  As a mom, I always wondered how and why these kind of things happen to an infant or child.  I know that I personally make sure that my kids are out of the car…

Summer 2012 Favs - Skincare

Although there have been a few “summer like” days, officially summer 2012 has come to a close. With the summer at an end I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my summer favorites. Being the product junkie that I am, and in true to form the list is rather long. Breaking down the list seemed easier and gives the illusion of not being the product junkie that most assuredly I am. There will be a…

Take it Easy

The beginning of the school year has brought about  lot of changes my entire family has been having to adjust to. I'm still not waking up quit as early as I would like to be. I haven't read a single chapter of my beloved historical fiction novel. I can't go shopping at nine at night and expect it to still be daylight outside with the neighbor children still running and shouting outside after a one hundred degree day. My family and I just added a new addition to our…

Holiday weekend brings thoughts of daunting fall schedule ahead

It's a holiday weekend. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and I have the day off.

I should be ecstatic. Instead, I'm fighting the blues. It's silly, I know. But end-of-summer time always does this to me. I absolutely love summer. I love the sun on my face, I love my little flower garden, and I love the lazy, slower schedule.

Tomorrow, the kids go back to school. And that means it's back to packing lunches, helping with homework, volunteering in the…

Things I've Learned This Week

** Inspirational quotes do nothing but piss me off when I'm in a crabby mood.

Look Out -- Dad's in Charge!!!

When I put my husband in charge of getting the kids somewhere, I can generally expect for at least a handful of important things to be completely forgotten.  Try as he might, he just doesn't run through any sort of mental checklist before he races out the door.  In fact, he's done this ever since the twins were little tiny babies, often leaving the house without so much as a…

Our No-Media Family Vacation (Complete with campfire recipe!)

Last week, we took our official annual family camping trip. Each summer, we take one trip to a California State Park that I deem “official”because it is with kids and without cell phones, laptops, or iPods. The only media we allow are cameras and Kindles (for capturing memories, and because we can keep all our books in one place). What I discovered on this trip was that three days of no Facebook updates, no check-ins, no Tweets and no notifications can actually be…

Thank God for Summer Camp

I am more than grateful for the genius who came up with the idea for summer camp.  Cause if my kids didn't have somewhere to go each and every day?  They would surely have killed each other by now.  However, as much as I like the idea…
