"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…

Cutting the cord - one snip at a time

I'm watching the back of my son as he rides away from me. I can see him wobble a little on his bike, but the training wheels take up the slack. He starts to turn the corner and he suddenly looks very little to me. He picks up speed, as he heads down the block. He races by the fence, and is now out of my eyesight.…

Where did you go?

I feel like I blinked and my daughter turned into a toddler.  It made me think about the reasons why people have children.

Where did you go?

It's Time to Wrap it Up

I cannot be the only one...who knows that the old saying, "when it rains, it pours," is as true today as it was when the first person uttered those words (probably between sobs and woeful wails).  We spent this past week getting knocked around by strong winds, the Sonny Boy took a vacation, and the Hubs and I got to spend a little alone time together (sounds great, right? Well...keep reading for the plot twist).

 

Southern California is a beautiful place to live, we have…

Reviewing the Week

I cannot be the only one…whose weeks are so full of things to do that they fly by fast and whose weekends fly by even faster.  Time has a horrible habit of getting away from me (notice how I don't take the blame for simply having bad time management skills) and before I know it it's Friday afternoon and I have so much yet to accomplish.  This past week was no different then the rest and we had quite a few things going on per usual.

It was a gray and chilly day…

Why he'll always be my baby

"I'm not a baby. I'm a little boy," says my son. Often. And he is right. He is growing up so quickly (seriously...who knew time traveled this fast?). And he has every right to remind me that he is more boy than baby.

I may think of him as my "baby boy" often, but evidently, it's not entirely my fault.…

Winding this Week Up

I cannot be the only one…who is very excited to put this past week behind them.  It has felt like nothing but holidays, holidays, holidays the past couple of weeks, and as lovely as it has been I am ready for the good old hum-drum of the work week.

We rang in the New Year and hit the sheets about fifteen minutes after the ball dropped in Times Square on the eve of 2014, but the Hubs and I still felt exhausted (and just a tad hung over)…

100 Posts - Just checking in before the year checks out

So, today I've reached my 100th post on this blog. Not too bad for a hobby I only started in late July. Instead of my usual ramblings about the latest news parents could use, I thought I would take this opportunity (right before the new year) to check in:

Everybody ready? (This could be bumpy.)…

Falling in Slow Motion

I cannot be the only one…who has watched their child heading for imminent disaster, opened your mouth to call out a warning to them, but knew perfectly well that fate’s plan was for them to fall.  This was exactly the scenario Sonny Boy and I experienced on our precarious neighborhood walk to scope out Christmas lights yesterday afternoon.…

Putting This Week To Bed

I cannot be the only one...who is relieved that this "holiday" week is over (and isn't afraid to say it).  Between my part time job, shuffling Sonny Boy around, and the hubby off work for two extra days this week, I am ready for it all to go back to normal.

Here are some of the highlights (I use the word highlights loosely) from this past week of vacation:

While driving Sonny Boy to and from places, in between my driving to and from places for work, I wondered…

Trying to Keep My "Cool"

keep-calm-and-never-grow-up-102

I swear it wasn't that long ago that my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING with me.  But lately, I'm starting to realize that maybe I'm not quite as cool as I once thought I was.  (*What the hell?!!*)  Fifth grade is bringing on a whole new desire for independence, and friends are…

Take The Mystery Out Of Your Technology: Read Up

It-is-terrific-to-know
 
 
It is terrific to know that you can take the mystery out of your technology by reading up on it. Some people are techno geeks who seem to know everything there is to know about every piece of technology that comes down the pike. Other people have not purchased a new piece of technology since the touch tone land line phone. Then in the middle of those two extremes are a myriad of other people many of whom want to know about technology but have…

Until you become an adult, you never really understand that your parents really WERE looking out for your best interests when you were a kid.  As much as you thought they were unfair and totally out to ruin your life, they really did kinda know what they were doing (most of the time anyway).…

Milk the Moment

With life constantly throwing reminders at me that my kids are, in fact, growing up (cell phones, sleepovers, bike riding to school -- EEK!), I often get swept up in the everyday craziness of just trying to keep up with it all.  Half the time they don't want to talk to me, let alone listen to me, and,…

Eavesdropping: One of the Few Benefits of Driving Carpool

When I'm driving around a carpool of screaming ten-year-old girls, it's sometimes hard not to wanna drive the car straight into Lake Michigan.  Seriously, these girls are capable of some severe damage to one's hearing (not to mention one's sanity).  However, one of the benefits of driving them around is that I get to…
