I’m a Fantasy Football wife. Not a wife that is any man’s fantasy because she buys brats and makes nachos every Sunday afternoon, takes the kids to the park during Monday night games or wears a team jersey and little else. No, I’m a wife who plays Fantasy Football, and let me tell you I’m no one’s fantasy once the games begin.
Thursday night the first NFL regular season game was delayed by a half hour and my first-round draft pick was playing. I actually got grumpy because a little…Continue

Many new dads don’t know what to expect during the labor and delivery process, especially, if they are a first time dad. If you have ever seen a tv show or movie that shows a woman giving birth, let me assure you that most labors don’t look anything like what you have seen on television. A woman typically labors for many hours before she is ready to deliver her baby and it…Continue

Valentine’s Day is by far one of my favorite ‘holidays’ but I’m honestly not sure why. It could be because of all the $1 crap I get our 2 little boys that excites them beyond words. Or maybe it’s the excessive eating of chocolate all day that makes my tummy happy. Or maybe it’s that I get to turn everything…Continue

My mother always told me to NEVER arrive empty handed when invited to a party. A bottle of wine, a box of fine chocolates and flowers are the old standbys, but if you want clever and unexpected gift ideas to woo your host or hostess and guarantee a repeat invitation, you have…

Recently, I finally surrendered to pains which have been nagging me for way to long. Much like the plumber with the leaky faucet, we, Doc families seem to be walking case studies of a plethora of ailments, aches, and pains - especially the adults. If something's hurting, I just wait until Doc H comes home, mention it in passing and wait for a response. Usually, I get no response other than a nod (translation: I have no idea. You’ll probably feel better in a day…Continue

Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to fall in love all over again with your significant other? As one of Michael Leunig’s quotes states, “Love one another and you will be happy; it is as simple and as difficult as that.” My husband and I say ‘I love you’ probably 20 times a day and although we mean it, we may have lost some of the passion in the words. Sometimes…

It’s Kindergarten time and we and when I say “we” I say that loosely as I rather mean “I” as Mom! Mom has had to deal with; lice, cold, flu, fevers, pink eye, growing pains, nightmares, teething, etc.
My husband works during the day so, I get it, I…Continue

I often wonder how we, as women, survive. I know that I am not unusual, but I spend the majority of my time worrying about what I have to do, longing to do the things I want to do, and guilting myself out when I don’t get things done, because I was doing what I wanted to do for myself.
Why do we do this to ourselves? Life is complicated enough without adding more and more layers of complexities. Somehow, society has painted a picture of what the perfect woman should be. She should…Continue

“Every day is a fresh beginning, Every morn is the world made new”
Today I am took my kids and my mom with me to visit the eFoods Global warehouse in Salt Lake City Utah. We need to see where the food is made! I think visiting the headquarters is important. (My kids groaned that it would be boring!) Even though I have already heard that eFoods is made carefully without hydrogenated oils and is of fine quality, I would like to see for…

So, here I am on the Mom Bloggers Club! Among my own kind finally! How fabulous is that? I would love to meet all the mom's and interview them on my show -- mom to mom! Sounds so fun! I hope you will consider it! In the meantime, here is a little news on me today. I was so excited to share my Power Mom Food Fund passion of feeding and funding families and it's so rare I get to see good news on myself that I am fairly brimming with excitement. I hope you don't mind if I share! Cheers…Continue

That's what I feel like doing as I think about how my day went. It was never ending, or so it seemed.
The littles were in full on crazy mode, Rian was not wanting to nap or be put down, and Levi was having a hard time with me paying so much attention to her. I wasn't even able to follow through with my plan to hand make Justin's Valentine's Day card.
I wanted so badly to go to the store and pick up something special for my man, but…
