New school year, new Mom outlook

The end of summer … the beginning of a new school year. For so many of us these are exciting times. I still remember those feelings of Labor Day Weekends gone by when we couldn’t wait to wear our new clothes for the first day, regardless of the fact that it was still summer and our long sleeve shirts and corduroys would be a bit warm in a building with no air conditioning. It was about looking good, not feeling good!



Many years later, I still get that nervous feeling in my stomach.… Continue

I have never seen my daughter happier! Me? Mixed...

When you have children there are aalways new milestones and not all occur with big fanfare. Some sneak up on you when you aren’t expecting it and those can be the most celebratory of all.



Last night I witnessed several with my daughter. We headed into the Time Warner Cable Arena to see the Jonas Brothers as she is obsessed with these boys and just can’t decide which one she will marry FIRST! Yes, I am working on that … she is not understanding that we marry for LIFE not til the next… Continue

Under Construction But for Now ...

The Childhood Cancer Awareness page of my blog is under construction but for now I will mention that Philosophy.com is donating all proceeds from their Oatmeal Raisin Shower Gel to Cookies for Cancer.

Worry, vent, release

Today was not a great day. Nothing severe or life changing happened. Just not a great day. I am sure most of it had to do with the date, August 18th. This would have been our 19th wedding anniversary if my first husband had beat the cancer that eventually took him and left me a 29 year old widow. Then I think about how blessed I am to have had two chances with men who have loved me so much. I would never have been blessed with the three little people I am Mommy to now.



This is how… Continue

This year September 12th has been recognized as Childhood Cancer Awareness Day. I am telling you now so… Continue

Can you teach your child to be empathetic or kinder?

Driving along today I over heard a conversation from the third row of the ‘Burban that sums up so clearly the difference between my three children…



Greg: “When I am an adult I am going to build houses for Hobos that are worth less than a cent so they can have somewhere to live.” (I am assuming he means “affordable”.)



Julia: “I am going to do that too, but first the Hobos have to give me the box they’re living in. Then I will give them a house. Then my kids can have a fun… Continue
