Jack loves music. At any given point in the day, the spunky three year-old is humming, dancing, singing or tapping his fingers and/or toes to the rolodex of melodies running amok in his mind. To watch the child is to witness first-hand the saying “mile-a-minute” because that is the speed at which his brain is […]
Can’t Make It One More Step…
We had an exhausting but wonderful weekend. God granted us some beautiful weather and the kids took full advantage of sunshine and warmer temperatures. Avery and Jack, both, spent the entire day on Saturday playing sidewalk chalk, swinging from the tree in the front yard, riding bikes, scooters and harassing neighbors. It was truly blissful. […]
The Contents of a Girl’s Purse
My daughter recently discovered that frenzied panic experienced by a woman who has lost something that is oftentimes more important than her car keys, favorite lipstick or (gasp!) most comfortable bra. Her purse. I have made no apologies for my unnatural but ever-so-real infatuation with purses. I always have to be carrying one and covet […]
Happy Friday! Is everyone ready for ‘normal’?
Well, here we are. Quickly approaching the first “non-Holiday” weekend for what has seemed like months. Here’s the problem with that. I don’t know what to do with myself. I feel like I should be buying something, baking something, decorating something, wrapping something, unwrapping something, eating something, drinking something or watching a gigantic ball drop […]
Top 5 reasons I’m glad school is back in session.
Christmas break is over and Avery is back on the school bus. Hallelujah! I love the child and to be quite honest I have really enjoyed the extra time we’ve been able to spend together but it will be nice to get a little bit of structure back into the household. As you may already […]
Three more days…
Honestly, I really can’t believe that it’s almost Christmas Day. And I’m kind of sad about it.It may be a little bit silly to already be upset that something is ending, when it hasn’t even happened yet, but anybody who has been eagerly anticipating this specific morning for 364 days understands the inevitable letdown that […]
Christmas Tree…an Update
Well, the tree went up yesterday and today was the day for decorating! I always look forward to this part of the holiday season because I think there is such joy in sorting through ornaments of past and present. The kids love hearing stories about each ornament and then creating their own stories as we […]
Kids and technology give me the heebies.
Halloween is upon us which brings all things”spooky” to mind.I was trying to think of something to write about in keeping with that theme. I racked my brain conjuring up images of blood and guts. Nope. Not spooky enough. I’ve had two babies. Once you’ve seen your insides taken out and placed on a table […]
He’s gone too far…more potty training woes.
In case you haven’t been following my blog (in which case, you and Ireally need to have a talk)I have been attempting to potty train my little man, Jack, for the past several months. It hasn’t worked. He could care less. I think he actually likes peeing his pants. I’m in big trouble. But,he recently […]
I found myself defending my choices to a first-grader
Prepare yourself to be very impressed by my obvious uber-generous personality and willingness to sacrifice myself for the greater good. Are you ready? Okay…I volunteer for 90 minutes every week in my daughter’s first grade class. I know. My propensity for servitude knows no bounds. (Sarcasm intended.) And this Thursday during my weeklymission for mankind […]
