Share Button

My little dude is soooo onto me when I try to give him greens with dinner. It doesn’t stop me, but he never eats them. With breakfast we offer a fruit, which he usually eats, and with lunch and dinner we also offer a fruit and some kind of veggie. But he never eats them! […]

That’s When…Little Moments That Make The Hard Ones Worth It

Share Button

Two nights ago Lucas woke from his sleep and asked me to snuggle him. I tucked him back in bed, and wrapped him in my arms. He let out a huge sigh, interlocked his fingers in mine and whispered “Mama” in that sweet angel baby voice, that at 4, has almost been replaced with his […]

Wow, the day has come and gone. I have an 18 year old. When my sister came to live with us at 12, I was 26 and Jon was 27. We had been married for 4 years but Jon and I have been together since we were 19 and 20, so he knew Anastacia since […]

We just got back from a mini family vacation. Jon’s parents took us to the beach for three days and we had a suite next to theirs, right on the beach. This girl was in heaven. It was especially nice because the kids would just head over to their suite to hang out, eat cookies […]

Summer. We have looked forward to it since January. We planned this year, saving a nice chunk from each check to maintain bills through August (wow did it hurt!). And now it is here. And we are enjoying it. This is the first year since Jon has been a teacher (8 years!) that he has […]

Getting In Mommy Snuggles

One of my favorite things about being a mother, the one thing I cherish most – snuggles. I can’t get enough. Every day I MUST snuggle my kids several times. I do it while playing with both of them, and I do it when I get that special individual time. Usually Liam sleeps longer than […]

Been MIA – Here’s Why

Share Button

I have been MIA for sometime now, and when my hosting renewal came, I almost let this site go. I was thisclose. Back in October I wrote a post about being the mom my mother wanted to be. I have never been more clear-headed about my relationship with my mother (or lack there of) nor […]

So I have been MIA… Again. The problem is this – I work online for a living. I do content management for a few celebrity and parenting sites and then I also run my Social Media Consulting and web design business, which we are just starting and trying to build. I work hard but I […]

Individual Dates: Mommy Blurb

Share Button

Today Jon and I each took Lucas out for a little special time of his own. He loves Liam and is a great brother, but we could tell he needed some individual attention. He has been having a few more meltdowns than usual, which could just be his age, but it was clear that he […]
