Recently my youngest has developed a phobia, to bugs, bumble bees specifically. I know what your thinking, what’s wrong with being afraid of bees, most people are. That’s fine and I think it’s sound advice to encourage kids to stay away from bees if they see them. Is this a stage or a sign that I should be looking for a good therapist? What do you think?…

Funny how special occasions like weddings and funerals and birthdays cause you to reflect. My oldest daughter is turning 7 this Saturday. There's nothing really significant about 7. It's not her first birthday. She's not entering her preteen years or sweet sixteen or eighteen, none of those significant age markers. But somehow this birthday seems to be having an impact on me.

I have an old towel. It's ripped and old and I would never use it. But still it sits in my hall closet. I can't throw it out because it makes me laugh every time I see. Not because it's ripped and I'm laughing at my insanity for keeping it. No, it makes me laugh because of the story behind it:
I'm guessing I'm not the only one who has a useless item at home… Continue

I think I've been cursed. I made a comment on another mom bloggers post about her bad day and here I am. Can anything good come from parking tickets, computer tantrums and a floor full of toothpicks?
Let me know I'm not the only one slogging through some days.

My daughter turns 7 this month and somehow she's convinced me to host her party at our house. This may not sound like an odd request, but considering all our previous birthday parties for her were held off-site, where someone else did most of the work.
Step one: Planning the party:
Now this work falls on me. Any suggestions or tips to get through this? Any… Continue

Like most moms, I'm use to receiving requests for project supplies from teachers. In most cases this is for stuff we use and have laying around the house, like toilet paper rolls or egg cartons. But what happens when the teacher asks for something you don't have:
