Mamavation Monday – I’m Back (Again)

September 26, 2011

It’s been awhile since I’ve shown my face around a Mamavation Monday. Earlier in the year I was kicking butt, dropping pounds and feeling great about myself. Then one day, something happened.

Child Passenger Safety Week – Seat Check Saturday

September 21, 2011

While my boys are all out of car seats and into boosters (and old enough to drive, as the case may be), child passenger safety is always an important subject to me. Though we’re past the days of the LATCH system and the five-point harness and into the phase of “Yes, you MUST sit in […]

Do You Know The Dangers of Button Batteries?

September 14, 2011

Some of you might remember a little over a year ago, when we had a frightening hospital stay with then 3-yr-old D. Unbeknownst to us, he had gotten ahold of a button battery and swallowed it.

What Is So Hard About I’m Sorry?

August 9, 2011

I’m sorry. Two words. Three if you expand the contraction. Occasionally, when it’s a minor infraction, you can get away with a one word “sorry.” Why does it seem to be so stinkin’ hard to just SAY it? I’m a chronic over-apologizer. I apologize for things that I do, that I don’t do, that other […]

What I Love

July 28, 2011

Last week, I joined in the inaugural prompt from Kick In The Blog and talked about Who Believes In Me. I had so much fun and wanted to keep the momentum going, so I’m jumping in on the second prompt that Jessica has shared there. The Million Dollar Question: What Do You Love To Do? […]

The Wind Beneath My Wings

July 22, 2011

Yeah, it’s me. I figured it was time to dust the cobwebs away over here and stomp on the cricket who’s been chirping loudly in the corner over there. Where have I been? Around –  working, tweeting, traveling, enjoying the summer. Why haven’t I blogged? To be honest, I don’t know. I feel like I’ve […]

Keeping our families safe on the road is a very important task that we undertake as parents. We drive carefully, keep our cars in tip-top shape, and make sure everyone is buckled in safely on each and every trip. Unfortunately, we can’t control what other drivers on the road are doing. We must rely on […]

True Friendship

April 9, 2011

Life gets in the way. What was once your number one priority gets pushed to the back burner. Friends that you thought you’d never go a day without speaking to drift off into their own lives, taking for granted the special bond you once had. The days pass and your new reality takes over as […]
