I have had it with excessive toy packaging!



I promised you the story and the pictures of opening the packaging of a new toy for Landon. Don bought him this noisy backhoe that came in the most ridiculous packaging I have ever seen. It was tied down by tiny screws, of all things, and it took us 10 minutes to open it! We were fuming and poor Landon had to be so patient. After we finally got it open, I took care of the noise by taking out the batteries right away, there was no way I was going… Continue

Busy Moms, Treat Yourself to a Massage!

What a great day! (Except for the black ant invasion that greeted me this morning in the kitchen, ugh… Do you think 8 traps will do the trick, fast?) I got so much done, it’s beautiful outside, I had a massage . . .



I made a phone call, finally ordered some new contact lenses, and paid some bills this morning, so I got that out of the way. After playing with the babysitter for two hours, Landon took an extended nap (with the help of more… Continue

This is why I STILL breastfeed!

I am breastfeeding a 2 ½-year-old toddler, and I have no problem doing it in public. In fact, I am so proud and glad that I am still breastfeeding that I have a breastfeeding counter on the bottom of my blog page! You would expect strangers to give me looks, but I actually have to justify my choice to friends and family more and more lately.



Why do I still breastfeed? Because Landon still wants to and asks for it, I love the bond we have through it and the convenience — and most… Continue

Confessions of a Former Exercise Fan!

Okay, I am getting fat. This is going in the wrong direction — summer is upon us! Aaah! My weight is okay, but I am just so out of shape! I am wearing the same four pants over and over again because I refuse to break out the box with the size 8 jeans, yet I just can’t bring myself to work out. I have no interest. What happened? I was the spinning queen before I had Landon; I even went spinning with him in my belly until I got so big that I was hitting it/him with my knees (I figured that was a… Continue

Decision-Making Made So Much Easier — 10-10-10 By Suzy Welch

I had the pleasure to review a new self-help book written by Suzy Welch, 10-10-10 — A Life-Transforming Idea. This book is all about helping you make decisions in life — the small ones and the really large ones. By asking yourself three questions — “What are the consequences of each of my options in 10 minutes, in 10 months, and in 10 years?” — Suzy Welch believes you can make much better choices in your life.



I have always been someone who figures out decisions by herself,… Continue

Thoughts About My Blog and Entrecard.com

Since I want to reach as many readers as possible, I am always glad when I find something free that I can use to promote my blog. When I learned about Entrecard a couple of months ago, I was exited to join. As everyone in the blog word knows, they recently changed their format and are now featuring paid ads, which will be displayed on your blog if you approve them. A lot of mom blog writers I follow are really upset about these changes and are stopping to participate. Maybe they have been with… Continue

Easy Potty Training - One Their Own Terms!

I have no clue how to potty train Landon, I have never really “trained” him—he is learning all by himself, on his own terms! When he was about 2 years old, I went to Toys-R-Us with him and bought him a potty. I had done extensive research on Target.com and read a lot of reviews before I bought the Graco Soft Seat Potty Chair, which is great (see picture above). I made a big deal about it and explained to him what it was for, that he is a big boy now and that he has his own potty. At home, we… Continue
