Halloween Hangover

Well here we are….November 1st. The holidays are looming ahead of us, most of the leaves have found their way to the ground, ready to be crunched under playful feet, jackets are mandatory in the early mornings and late afternoons and the daylight is growing more and more elusive. All of the hype and planning…

What comes next??

I have to admit that today’s blog is a little emotional for me and really puts me in a vulnerable place with my readers. But I’ve committed to blogging about my life raising my son and today’s topic is most definitely a part of that. So here we go…. Life seems to follow these natural…

5 Life Lessons we should all learn from our kids

It isn’t any secret that kids, especially young kids, rock at life.  They are generally carefree, happy, accepting, loving, and most importantly they let all the little stuff roll of their backs.  In watching my son, my nieces and nephews, I’ve begun to realize that they really do hold the secret to happiness.  If only…

Hail to the Stay-at-home-Parent

I’ve been thinking about roles a lot lately.  Our family unit is set up a bit differently than is considered “the norm”.  It seems to be a little more main-stream these days, but overall, it is still different.  I go to work, full-time, and my husband stays home to care for our child.  He is…

Reality…Sometimes you have to just face it

Ahhh, REALITY.  Don’t we all try to escape it as much as we can?  Movies, vacations, Facebook (ironically so, since you’re probably reading this through my FB post), etc, etc, etc.  I know that, for me, escaping reality is blissful, it’s so fabulous, it feels like peace. But for me, now, there is no such…

Yeesh…..people these days!!!

Please let me start by saying two things.  I know that you have probably seen this already because it is really making its rounds on social media right now, so I apologize for jumping on the band wagon, as it were, but I literally cannot help it. I am going to use a bit of…

So what if I want to brag about my amazing kid?

Picture yourself in the company of a group of women, specifically a group of mothers. You will most likely hear things like; “Oh my kid started walking when he was 11 months, he’s so advanced, it’s amazing”….”Oh really, my kid started      just like 3 days after his 10 month birthday, he’s so amazing”…..”Wow, well my…

“The Back-up Plan”…..SUCKS!!!!

So, tonight I was randomly flipping through channels and I came across a movie called “The Back-up Plan” with Jennifer Lopez.  I only watched about 20 minutes of the movie, so I have to clearly give up my realistic overall review of the movie. However, I firmly believe that the 20 minutes I watched were…

The Magic of a 2 Year Old’s Smile

Is there anything quite so terrifying/horrible/heart-wrenching than your child being sick or in pain?  You feel so helpless. All you want to do is take it away.  You’d take it into yourself if you could.  All those moments you spent as a child wishing you had magical powers so you could fly, be invisible, make…

Acceptance???

I’ve been thinking a lot about acceptance lately.  Acceptance is sort of a word that is thrown around these days, is it not?  Supposedly we’re all accepting of all types of people, all the time.  But is that really accurate?  I spent my evening with a dear friend who currently lives thousands of miles away…
