In second grade we were all encouraged to create a secret code word so that if our parents ever sent an intermediary to pick us up from school, we would know it was safe to leave with that individual. (I can't remember if my word was kitten or Strawberry Shortcake.)…
I decided that I wanted to think back over the past 4 years and come up with 27 things that I have learned about being a mom.
Some are silly, some are serious, and some just aren't right!
Why 27 you ask? Well, simply because today is my birthday and I am 27 years old! Makes total sense right?!?

It was one of those days that you start off wishing you could just stay in bed and sleep and skip the next couple of days because you KNOW they will be hellish. My car blew up the night before. The coolant emptied and I drove it while it was overheated. So it didn’t technically blow up like an…Continue

I always loved summer time as a kid, it meant spending time at the pool and hanging out with my friends on the weekends. While I was growing up, my mom would often invest in a small wading pool for us so that we could swim in the backyard.

Starting when Hana was a toddler, I’ve raised her to be very polite and respectful. Hana always uses please and thank you, excuses herself from the table, and asks before taking. Her teachers constantly rave about how obedient and helpful she is in school. I beam when people tell me how well behaved she is and how amazing her manners are. There had been no…Continue

The previous night Rascal had time to make a few bracelets and left a huge mess of beads behind. I decided to move him to the mantel so that the my baby or the puppy wouldn’t get ahold of him. Again, I placed him up on the mantel so that he can watch the kids. We have less than a week left with Rascal and I am already getting sad. He has been a great addition to our family and created a new tradition for my children.
Rascal was excited to go tell Santa Claus that he was able to…Continue

Terrific Tuesday - it is terrific to know solving hunger problems can help you solve life problems.
Today is is World Food day! That means it is a day set aside in order to make people aware of food challenges faced by people around the world.

The lesson I learned from the Oxfam Grow campaign is that the lessons we learn about food and stopping…

As a parent, I have three jobs. My jobs are to love my children, keep them safe, and to teach them about life. I take my jobs very seriously. So when Hunter walks away from me in a parking lot, I grab her arm and jerk her back to my side. If my yelling makes her cry, maybe she can understand my…Continue
