When Murphey's Law Failed

So in our quest to have the perfect weekend with a barbecue with the in laws....it didn't turn out that great...at least not for my husband. Well the barbecue turned out great thanks to my sister in Law and Her Husband who brought over their grill because ours would have exploded. (Read More)

Chasing Jaydon

His nose wrinkles as he grips the head of the elephant toy. Then he rips the head off and says "Ah Oh". He looks down at the headless corps in satisfaction, then up at me with pride in what he had done. (Read More)

Tredding the Waters with My AquaTot

This summer, I'm taking another round of "swimming" classes with my toddler. For her, it's a way to get comfortable in the water; I know she will not master the art of the backstroke but she will learn to float on her back.

But for me, it's a lesson on what not to wear, what to bring and what to really do in the water with my tot! (Yes moms and dads, if you want your child to blow bubbles in the pool then you too must insert face in water!)

Come share…

Parenting Truths Revealed…

Things “They” Never Tell You…

As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on…

Little Darlin' or Holy Terror

I just love this photo … As much as we may not want to admit it; there truly is a little bugger and devil in all our children. It does not matter how cute and adorable we think they may be at the time because we can't loose sight of the fact discipline is so very important when raising children. We all can attest a child's unacceptable behavior can get out of hand very quickly when it is ignored and not addressed immediately. They are extremely bright… Continue

Terrible twos Jungle

We are deep in the Terrible Twos Jungle. Just a few days ago we passed the half-way mark much to the relief to the majority of us who are on this safari. We would have celebrated that momentous occasion

but just as we passed the mark the Two Year Old decided she had an idea

of her own: a temper tantrum. Why? Mommy dared to shower.

Mommy tried to explain to the Two Year Old that it was fine, that although Mommy was a bit stinky, the idea of having a waterfall in the middle of…

Here's How To Help Expand Your Child's Language And Vocabulary Skills: Introduce Toddlers And Preschoolers To Musical Games

Research shows that participation in musical games has many positive effects on kids.



When kids sing, they organize vowels and consonants in a rhythmic pattern which helps to build language and vocabulary skills.



Musical games also help to develop kids' fine and gross motor skills, resulting in better coordination. Putting movement and music together uses both sides of the brain.



Of course there's other reasons to introduce music into your kids' lives: It's just… Continue

Should Playgroups be Structured?

Some playgroups like to structure their time. Some moms enjoy planning activities and learning opportunities while others appreciate the time to chill, watch the kids play, but otherwise stay out of their way and have some “mom time.” Which is better? It’s not really a matter of better, but there is something to be said for unstructured play. Scienceblogs.com recently featured an article based on a study published Development Psychology. The study found that unstructured playgroups found a… Continue

Parenting Help: 9 Slip Ups to Avoid in Toddlerhood

The best parenting help in the world would be if each toddler came with an individual owner's manual to assist parents in the trying times of toddlerhood. Sure there is plenty of helpful advice out there from other moms and dads and professionals, but every child is different, with a different temperament so usually parents end up on a trial and error basis when using parenting help to assist in raising their toddler. Much of parenting is trial and error and not giving up until you find the… Continue

Momnesia a Myth?!?

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

Truthful Tuesday; February 23,2009!

OK, Truthful Tuesdays....once again, we are gathered here to expunge our psyche's of all of this unnecessary bullshit that we've been

carrying with us in tortured silence and not so silent misery.No

judgment, no ramifications, just support and love from those of us who

are exactly where you are....the brink of insanity, the end of our

rope, a not so high ledge. No matter the circumstances, we are with

you. Today, I'd like to confess…

Fleeting Moments of hormone laced Insanity

It's that time again, yes, everyone around me is either having a baby or anticipating trying to have a baby. I know, didn't I just post about

this? Anyways,there are two things that I have come to know as my

truths..they may even be universal. The first is that apparently I am

still on the fence about a third child because no matter how many times

I tell myself, I am done and I want to move on with my life, every

single time one of my…

Mothers; No matter how old our children may get, they will always be our "babies'

Today, I had an amazing realization. I used to hate when my Mom or my Mother in Law would call and ask all kinds of questions, or try to tell

us what to do, how we should be behaving or spending ( rather saving)

our money. It used to drive me crazy, back when I was in my 20's,

before I had my own little precious gems.And now I know, now I

understand fully...Now, I also realize I will be 10 times worse! We…

49 Stairs

That’s a lot of stairs for little toddler legs. That’s a lot of

stairs for long mommy legs, but since my buttocks have spread a bit

more than I was initially hoping for at the beginning of the pregancy

and the dimplage, creases and loss of muscle tone makes me avoid the

many mirrors that have popped up in my new house, I am trying to view

said 49 stairs as a blessing in working off my extra mini-snickers a

day craving rather than an evil.

Yesterday as we…

Truthful Tuesday's 2/9/10

Good morning, my lovelies! It is once again that time of the week. The

day that we can come to our safe haven and expunge all of the wreckage

of the week from our souls! Don't be afraid, we won't bite. Just take

your load and dump it here! Happy Tuesday! I'm sure tomorrow will be

better!

So, that being said, here are my 3 (yeah its been that kind of week)

for the day; I wish so badly that my 2 year old could wipe her own

little butt. It's not that I don't like… Continue

Never expect Silence when Children are awake!

I know that it is crazy to expect to have a moment of peace and quiet

to myself. I know that there are sacrifices to be made when you have

children. I am on board with that. I was not so oblivious to think that

my life would remain unchanged. I thought there would be changes. I

knew things would never be the same, but I was not prepared for the

magnitude; the depth and breadth of it all. When they were newborn, all

my time was spend occupying their time. My life… Continue
