Love Dare Challenge Day 2: Kindness in a skillet

Today's Love Dare was accomplished with a skillet of Hamburger Helper, which my husband loves, but which I find barely palatable. I consider myself an above average cook and am always trying out new recipes or creating new dishes, and while Steve enjoys most of my creations, I get the most satisfied reaction from him when I stick with the basics.



Today I made an effort to stick with the basics of love--patience and kindness.



I have… Continue

Love Dare Challenge: Love is patient, love is kind

I am participating in the "Love Dare Challenge," along with some other great women at OurLoveDare.com. I thought I would share some of my posts here.



I am not a patient person. So it stands to reason that I don't like to be late.



Several weeks ago, we were getting the kids ready for church and, as usual, the morning had slipped away and I was frantically trying to get the little ones ready and out the door so we would not… Continue

The bucket and the mop



(The names and dates in this post have been changed to protect the identity of Sophie's classmates.)



Today when I picked Sophie up from school I saw something no parent ever wants to witness: a bucket and mop outside of the classroom.



"No, no, NO!" I thought to myself. I usually walk to her class to pick her up and made my approach… Continue

Panty lines: The bane and bum of my existence

I just want to take a moment to thank all of the wonderful people that I came in contact with today that took the time to tell me that the belt from my long sweater was twisted inside my thong and that part of my left butt cheek was exposed.



First of all, some of you (especially my mom and sister) may be shocked to learn that I, a 41-year-old mother of three, wear a thong. I have struggled with panty lines my entire life--they are the bane of my very existence! I cannot stand the… Continue

My two-year-old's going to juvie



I am at my wit's end. My littlest one, Carly, is on a fast-track to preschool juvie! She has become what I have feared most--a bully! (At right is a picture of her in her panty do-rag, ready for lock-up.)



My daycare provider called me today to let me know that Carly was on a bullying rampage, taking out every baby who got in her way. After being sent… Continue

WV moms combat bulky coats with innovative outerwear: Babycapes





No responsible parent would ever knowingly put their child in harm’s way while traveling in a vehicle, but this winter, many parents will do just that merely by dressing their children for cold weather.



Martinsburg, WV, mom, Elizabeth Hostler, was shocked to learn that she was putting her daughter, Andy, at risk every time she put her into her infant… Continue

The carrot, the egg and the coffee

A dear friend of mine emailed this little story to me today and I thought I would share it...



The Carrot, the egg, and the coffee



A carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee...You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again.



A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up, she was tired of fighting and struggling. It…

Back where you belong

I want my boobs back.



I have been either pregnant or nursing my entire marriage--a little more than seven years. My youngest is 28 months old and she's still going strong.



My friends always told me that most babies will quit nursing on their own--lose interest, usually between nine and 16 months. My kids apparently missed that section in their handbooks. I think my oldest would still be nursing if we hadn't had to put the kibosh on it when I was pregnant with my second… Continue

Does this phone make me sound fat?

In this age of blogging, email and cell phones, we're often left to speculate what the people we're communicating with on a regular basis look like. Blogger and other social networks are nice because you can post photos on your profile, but are those accurate representations? Take my photo, for example. I HATE having my picture taken, so when I come across one that is decent I tend to glom onto it and use it over and over. A photographer friend of mine took that photo of me--under protest--when… Continue

Breaking bread

Today I was a victim of produce abuse.





I still am trying to come to terms with the harsh reality of the events that occurred today, so bear with me as I work through this as the emotions are still quite raw...





I will be the first to admit that I have some--how shall I say this--anal-esque practices. (I can picture my husband reading this post and nodding his head vigorously.) Grocery shopping is no exception.





In my defense, I am a mother of… Continue
