The Joy of Mother's Day Through The Eyes of a Thirty-Something Mum

Mother's day comes with many happy moments, but the most heart-warming part of the holidays always seems to be the opening of the presents. Oh well, preparation and receiving presents has their good sides, too, but let's face it, all the thrill around the whole arrangement is not to the taste of everyone. In fact, I am one of the people who actually likes being involved in planning, but there is nothing I enjoy more than a warm cup of milk & cocoa near the fireplace with sweet…

The Banana Boat Ride

wantwhat34234



As a parent, I've often found myself doing things that I wouldn't dream of doing on my own free will --  cleaning poop off a wall, catching puke with my bare hands, dining at a germ-infested Chuck E. Cheese.  But the hellacious thing I got roped into doing last week on vacation?  Well, that should earn me fabulous…

My Struggle with Infertility - The Beginning

I wanted to share something that is a very personal struggle and this is something not tons of people know about me. It is kind of in-depth so I am going to break it up over a couple posts. I don't want to bore you to tears :). This is not meant to be a depressing post in fact I hope it will help some people, people I know even, who have or are currently going through this.

Here is my story from the start. When I was 14 years old I went into my OBGYN's office because of pain. That’s…

The Great Toy Debate

This last week, as part of Big M’s in home therapy we all gathered the room full of toys together and sorted through them.  The goal was to organize the toys to be easier to find, sort through them and pick ones to donate or discard and to set up a new toy system.

I am quite excited for this new toy system! We broke everything up into small bags and buckets. They get one bucket of toys in the living room at a time. Before they can get a new bucket out they must pick up and put the…

The Polarization of Mommies...

In the wee hours of the night, as I rocked my littlest guy to sleep, my mind began to wander and I started to think about how things have changed since my oldest boys were babies.  See, I'm a pushin' 40 Momma again to a baby - with an 8 and almost 12 yr old...and, let me tell you - A LOT has changed.  The gadgets are cooler, safety regulations are completely different and everything is more expensive.  But, as I rocked and reminisced, I realized one of the biggest differences…

Summer Fun as a Family

The taste of ice cold lemonade, the feeling of the cool grass between your toes, the sounds of children laughing, the smell of sunscreen and chlorine, and seeing your neighbors in their yards… ahh, summer time is finally here!

For our kids it is the break they have been looking forward to since New Year. For adults, it reminds us of our own youth and how carefree we…

"The talk"

 So I had THE question asked of me by my 6 year old daughter. You know the one, the one that turned me into a awkward and uncomfortable teenager. "Mommy, how does the baby get in a Mommy's belly?" She asks me while we are drawing at the art table. Her brothers were napping, so this Mommy and daughter bonding just took a whole big turn.







I panicked, what do I say? What is age appropriate? I want to give her the right…
