I am a pen addict. I love pens of all kinds. Ball point, ink roller, glitter, fountain, colored, black, blue, fancy, cheap, and even markers, too. Each year (okay, a few times each year), I buy a new set of multi-colored pens or Sharpie markers to color-code my calendars, lists, and my life. My husband teases me, but accepts that he has an easy out anytime he needs a small gift to give me.
I was beyond excited when I recently found a multi-colored five…Continue

A couple of weeks ago I began blogging about 5 Keys to Contentment - a list written by Ella Speers that has meant a lot to me over the past few years. That's not to say that I have by any stretch perfected this - quite the contrary, but I am trying.
The first key was never allow yourself to…Continue

Bebe Sounds baby monitors can provide peace of mind for new parents. And Angelcare Monitor is fully aware that there are many things for parents to take care of when they bring their child home. They need to make sure the baby’s basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing are taken care of properly. However, the safety of your baby while they are sleeping is also a major concern.

Shandra over at "A Pause On the Path" has begun "On Your Heart Tuesdays". So far I've managed to eek out one post, but quite frankly, I didn't have anything on my heart last week other than "LET ME SLEEP" - that was what was on my heart all week. (blushing)

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.

Why does Lisa grumble when it is time for her to go for her piano lessons?
How come Johnny abhors the sight of his skates now? After all, these
children were very enthusiastic about the programs when they started off.
What happened? Parents are often confused by the disturbing and often…

School is starting next week, so it is time to start getting ready for lunch packing...bleck! Sorry, but I absolutely detest packing lunches...not sure why, but I do. One morning during the last school year, when I was packing Kate's lunch, I realized that most of the items I was putting in her lunch box were ridiculously processed. It's actually one of the reasons that I started this blog. I decided that I needed to do a better job of making sure that I feed my children healthier foods,…Continue

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 /…

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…Continue
