Thankful for a parents-break, as my daughters enjoyed their grandparents for the weekend.
Thankful for quiet time to imagine…

So as I am sitting here checking my email I started thinking "I feel like I forgot to do something today?" Baby boy fed, bathed and asleep...check. Laundry started...check. Dishes done...check. Dog walked...check. Alright, then what is the problem? As I sat trying to figure out why I feel that I should do something, I notice my shirt. It's a tank top actually, blue in color and I think "I don't remember putting this shirt on today?"...

I feel super duper worthless this week. I swear I only work to bring home a paycheck – would be nice to work because I felt needed. Like the whole company would fall apart without me. My last job was like that – even my first job at Cracker Barrel was like that. Come to think of it – all my jobs have pretty much been like that. I was treasured…

My makeup bag contains one very old tube of foundation (because I only wear makeup on the rare occasions when my husband and I go out for dinner) and a few other dried up objects. I resorted to cutting my own hair when Mirabelle was a baby (because it just seemed easier than trying to work out a time when I could go to a hair salon, given she was BF and refused… Continue

The British Journal of Psychiatry has published the findings of a new research study from the Australian National University. After studying 1,241 women, scientists concluded that women's memories remained as good during and after pregnancy as before. Prof Helen Christensen who led the study said "women need to be less automatic in their willingness to attribute common memory lapses to a… Continue

As the due date rapidly approaches (5 weeks and 3 days at this posting), it's getting close to deciding what kind of family we will be.
Are we going to be a Huggies or a Pampers family? I used to think a diaper is a diaper but I now know this is not the case. In the land of "You get what you pay for", diapers seem to be a force to… Continue

I am the first one to say parenting is serious business. After all, I’m not only a mother and a grandmother, my work as an author is based on parenting as well. And like most parents, I focus on how and what my children learn, especially during their formative years. The formative years are the most important years in terms of the characteristics and traits they obtain and carry into their adult lives.
Parents place an enormous amount of energy on their children’s academic education,… Continue

Stork parking was an exciting thing when my husband and I first found out we were pregnant. We couldn't wait to go to Babies R Us to finally park in the coveted "Stork Parking" spots. Granted, we first parked in it a few days after we found out we we're pregnant and I was only about 5 weeks along but fast forward 7 months later and I have realized what a difference… Continue

It's quite fascinating that we're able to say the baby is only 10 weeks away. It's just around the corner! The 30th week was quite a week for us. We had our monthly visit with the baby doctor and got to hear his heartbeat again. We love hearing his little heartbeat! She had everything looked wonderful and we would even get one… Continue

Although I am still in beautiful Singapore with my Daughter “the Gymnast” and “My Rock”, I thought I should communicate with you prior to my return.
First, Singapore is beautiful and we are having an amazing time. I am so blessed that I can travel and take my children with me. We have decided that we will take each child on their own trip– so this was Gymnasts trip. My other two children also had their “on their own trips” It is a whole other world… Continue

When the stresses of Motherhood become more then you can handle, where do you find refuge? Some might take a long bath when the husband gets home or hand the kids off and go for a run. Some might steal a moment to read the Bible to draw strength from The Almighty, while others will turn to drinking, perhaps to wash away their thoughts. I myself find it difficult to do any of these. Why, you might ask? Well, I’ll tell you why…
First of all, the most obvious choice would be drink… Continue

As the school year is underway and our schedules are HEAPING with more than the year before – how do you make time for what is important? Determining what is important will be different for everyone, but I can almost guarantee that when we stop for a minute and truly think about what is important, it won’t be getting to the grocery store (unless your frig is completely bare!) cleaning the bathroom or watching Dr. Phil. I bet spending time with family… Continue

Since I am a custodial step-parent, my perspective is from that point of view. My stepkids
live with me full time, but that isn't the case for many step-mothers. Many of you are
probably spending a lot more time with your stepkids than you are used to doing. This
post is dedicated to those of you that might be experiencing a difficult transition from
part-time to full-time stepparent. Here are my suggestions for an enjoyable extended stay
for your… Continue

I just finished taking a bath. I don't mean just any bath. I mean a big girl bath, one without any kiddos. For those of you with kids, you know what I am talking about.
First, I go in and turn on the IPod to Choo Choo Soul. No wait, I said NO kids. I can listen to anything I want. My choice, Michael Jackson Dangerous album. Next, I turn on the water to lukewarm, pour in tearless baby wash and pull out the color dots. Wait, Wait.....tonight it can be scalding hot clear water with the… Continue

I was singing like a bird yesterday morning with everything moving like clockwork. It was going to be my first day spent without the children. Coffee was brewing and pancakes were steaming. Axel and Brevitt woke up early so that they could get to Mountain Boarding camp on time and Tucker had gone to sleep talking about the Bouncy House that he was going to jump on all the next day. I looked outside and it was sunny for the first time in months and my bike was sitting outside waiting for me to… Continue
