Creative Ways to Spend Time with Your Children

In this day and age, where children and their parents tend to be quite disconnected from each other, either because the parents work long hours or the children spend more and more time online and using social media, making time to spend with your children is becoming very important. Planning quality time and activities…

Update: Rabbit, final

The Great Rabbit feud has ended. JM and her roommate had it out Saturday afternoon. JM discovered that the roommate was upset over something that had nothing to do with a rabbit and over something she didn’t even do.

The silent treatment tactic apparently is just how she deals with conflict. What a waste… a week lost over a misunderstanding, when a little conversation could have fixed it immediately. JM even asked her numerous times what the real problem was…

A letter to E



Dear Ellie-



You are a wonderfully happy and cheerful child! I am very happy that you are so smart and fun and silly. You always make us smile with your curiosity and the odd things that you do. like wearing your shopping cart or trying to call all the things that have Princesses on the them at the same time. I love it when you climb up in our bed and get under the blankets and say "covers, covers!"



Could you do me one little… Continue

American Music Awards, In front of my TV, 2007

We got home last night a little after seven from picking up the kids, only to turn on the TV and find full-on naked mannequin nipples in my face. Right as I registered what I was looking at I heard shrill screams coming from my bedroom where I had just sent the kids upstairs to gather up their laundry, where they naturally turned on the TV only to find the very same nipples.

All I could really hear beyond their screams were the years of carefully placed parental shielding being…

My name is Tara, and I am a bibliophile

Hello, my name is Tara and I love books.

Hello, Tara.

It’s not just that I love books, I buy books, lots of books. I don’t like the frailty of paperbacks. Most of my books are hardcovers, so this is an expensive habit. I don’t like to get my books at the library because sometimes I have to wait for the ones I want… and I want them now, even if I won’t read them for weeks.

I always have a book with me, in my purse, in my car or on my desk at work. If I…

Perspective

i've found more reasons to be thankful throughout the day. the most poignant reason is a blog

that i have stumbled upon. her husband died. it seems it was sudden

from her posts. she has children and is trying her hardest to keep it

together. i so feel for her. for me, even to think about being in her

position is too much for me to take. i can't fathom what it would be

like. i could raise two kids by… Continue

Thankful

i've been feeling very thankful lately. not that i am ungrateful ever,

but sometimes things just make me feel more thankful. this usually

happens when i have a bad day. like when i look down and see a stone

missing from my engagement ring, or walk into ellie's room and can

instantly tell that her diaper has failed us. or when i am totally

ready to go to bed 10 and avery wants to stay awake until 1am. or when

i keep getting hospital bill after hospital bill.… Continue

Did you forget we aren't rich?

When I ask my kids what they want Santa to bring them for Christmas this year, why do I get a mile long list? Not only that, why is every single item on my kids lists, not under the $100 mark?

Money is of no object to them. They have no concept of finances. They believe for years, thanks to their father, that there was a money tree out back of the house that I went and plucked whenever I wanted some cash. ( I joked to hubby that this year things have been so rough, that its only…

Have a fat and happy Christmas

He had a broad face and a little round belly,

That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,

And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself

Clement Clarke Moore wrote these immortal words in 1822 and forever established the image of Santa Claus. It was this description that advertisers used when creating the commercial stereotypes of Santa in the early 1930s.

Making Santa P.C.

OH NO! Say it isn't so! Is Santa another misogynistic male? Apparently

controversy over his use of the " Ho, Ho, Ho " greeting has broken out

in Australia.



The furore erupted after recruitment company Westaff suggested its Santas swap 'ho, ho, ho' for 'ha, ha, ha' because the traditional term could

be viewed as derogatory towards women and could…

Update: Rabbit

As of Friday, JM made it abundantly clear to her roommate that she does not want a rabbit or any other sort of live pet in their dorm room. She now has to deal with a petulant child that will either repeat everything she says back to her, turn her back when JM is talking with her, or simply not say anything. She actually ate dinner in their closet because she didn’t want to be in the same room with JM.

Class was out on Monday in observance of Veterans Day so JM had the room to herself…

Tell a soldier thank you

Sunday was officially Veterans Day, but today local businesses, schools, banks and government offices are closed to mark the commercial observance. My husband and son have the day off from work and school. I came into the office as usual.

Parades marched down area streets over the weekend, and ceremonies are being held at several Veterans Memorials and cemeteries. One restaurant in town is offering veterans and active military free dinner today.

I say it’s just not enough.…

Flu Shot Party

Flu Shot Party, My house, 2007

My arm hurts so bad I can hardly lift it. I keep telling myself that suffering the dull ache of my throbbing arm is way better than waking up with the cold sweats, teeth chattering, body on fire, scalp aching, can't leave your bed for 5 days, influenza. That and compared to my ass, my arm is a dream. The huge tetanus shot which was leveled in my nether regions the day before my flu shot hurts so much worse that I can't really complain about a slight arm…

Getting Beyond The Anger

On the first day of NaBloPoMo, I stated that I would primarily focus on the subject of single motherhood for this month. Well, I often struggle with how far I should go when posting about my personal life. Since my blog is not anonymous, I don't reveal too much. But I'm wondering if there are single mothers (or fathers) reading who can relate to my situation. My story is all too common, and it's really… Continue

Twaddlers and Tweefos and Tweens... oh my!

It's really happening, Mama!

She's changing right before your eyes. The little girl that used to run around with hair all fuzzy from somersaults and a Pull-Up all squishy from--well, we won’t go there-- but your little princess is turning into a young woman!

Gone are the pudgy little legs that used to run with abandon. Chubby cheeks have been replaced by a softly sculpted jaw line and cheekbones. The round little tummy you used to blow raspberries onto is giving way to a…

Roommate Drama

Here is one of those situations where the kid is more than four hours from home, she is having a crisis and wants to handle it herself. I’m incensed and want to help, but also want to give her the opportunity to see it through alone.

Gotta love college roommates.

Puppy Seems JM’s roommate is a little lonely so her boyfriend offered to get her a puppy. A puppy the roommate believed she could hide from the Resident Assistant by putting it in a kennel under her bed. I…
