Did you know that Buckwheat is gluten free? Yes, it is true. Even though wheat is in the name don't let that fool you. Buckwheat is very high in protein and a good source of iron. It has a slight nutty flavor. It will give your baked goods a light brown color similar to baking with whole wheat. It is generally mixed with other flours for best results. It is a healthy alternative to the dreaded "white" flour pancakes.…
Is it just me or does it seem to you that mean girls are increasing exponentially? Sure, there have always been mean girls. No doubt, even during the stone age there was one cave girl who was giving another Cro-Magnon chick attitude about her sub standard fur pelt. I mean wearing a brown bear hide in spring - how prehistoric. When I was in…
Well on day 29, I'm finally going to take the Bloggy Moms August Blog Challenge, "Fall(ing) from Fashion}"
Truth be told, I have no fashion sense these days. As a stay at home mother I get up and put my hair in a pony tail, put on something appropriate to greet Mom's who always look amazing since they are going to an office. Their hair is done, their make up looks perfect, and I am make-up less as I brush my untamed bangs out of my face or pin them back with barrets and flash a… Continue

Play dates, as we all know, are a way of life. The lucky mom is the one with their kid at someone else’s house. Ah - it’s a few more hours of precious freedom and you don’t have to play after school snack bingo.
I have been a full time stay at home mom. I have been a full time working mom. Although I felt fulfilled doing each (tired too), I also always felt judged by the women standing on that thick green grass over there.
When I was a full time stay at home mom it
felt as though there were working moms everywhere I went. They
made me feel less of a woman because I was at home all day. I must…
Mother's Day is poignant for most of us. We all had a mom and we are moms. Hopefully, our moms were good moms though I do know from drying the tears of many women that not every woman had the mother she needed. And for that, my mothers, I'm sorry, because it’s a pain that stays a long time.
My mother was a good mother but she made mistakes. As a bossy first born I was quick to point them out whenever the mood fit me.…
I'm feeling a little overwhelmed lately and it's my own doing. I have become one of those over-scheduled moms who tries to do it all plus some...we have an activity for almost every day of the week, belong to a local mom's social group, play groups, I do laundry twice a week, keep a fairly clean house, and have this blog.
Now I have a job interview tomorrow. Yes a job interview. I have been considering going back to work for some time now and sending resumes but with this… Continue

In our newly released WhyMomsRule.com poll, 80% of Moms will make some type of sacrifice to ensure their families have a vacation this year. Cost is still the primary concern for Moms, with their view of the economy tempering how they spend the household budget. However, Moms…
I try to keep up with the postings here, but I don't get the chance to post a lot (kids, homeschool, ACTs, etc). I wanted to invite you all to my latest series of postings on my other blog at http://myvidamocha.com . This set of postings is called "The Truth Series." It's all about things we may not want to hear but are definitely the truth - things that if we take to heart, can change us or someone we know. Please stop by and take a look. Thanks and keep up the… Continue

When my children were little I started a craft business called Creative Crafts. I taught arts and crafts classes to children ages 4-11. Each 6 week session we explored many craft techniques including: making collages, black and white, color studies, faux painting,book making, we even baked and created"food art". I then hired other moms to teach sewing classes and sketching classes for the older children.
During the summer my mom and I held a music and art camp and incorporated… Continue

I never really thought of being over 40 as an issue.
I've just been doing my thing for the past 20 years and haven't really noticed anything was different.
After college I married and had my career. Then came the kid thing. I gave up my career to be at home with my kids. Yes, I found small part time jobs and other methods of making money. Being home when my kids were home was my personal priority and something I've never regretted, even though I don't have the nicest car or… Continue

Yesterday was great! I received a nice email from a very happy member/customer.
She's is probably http://www.mykidsregistry.com/ biggest fan. Her daughter's birthday is coming up and she used used our einvite function to invite party guests, she created a wish list and ordered her party supplies through http://www.birthdayinabox.com/. She saved a tree and saved gas & time by ordering party supplies. Sharing her daughters wishes through a wish list was just an added… Continue

No...I obviously don't. I think my bed is in a tiny room upstairs. It was last seen at 7:00 a.m. this morning, wearing a king size comforter, sage green, and my beloved remote controls lay on top and oh yes..the clean laundry from yesterday still in need of a home all lay on top of the bed!
BTW, have I discussed with you my poor relationship with laundry? We don't get along. We've had this on going battle for a few years. I think it heightened when the kids arrived. I've actually… Continue

I started training again, marathon training that is. It was a tough decision. I was getting used to having more time at home to chill out after ten days skipped. But I ran the other day, and then again today. Beat the heat and got my butt out there before sun-up.
And then, second day back, I saw tracks. Uh, huh. Tracks. Not little bunny rabbit tracks. No, the maker of these tracks would have had that little bunny rabbit as a… Continue
