How Can I Support Her?

I did have a different topic to blog about tonight, but that one will be saved for another, happier day. As I’ve mentioned before, I think, I’m the matron of honor (ok, maid of honor — I’m not old enough to be a matron!) for a friend’s wedding in May. I called her earlier today to see how things were going, and she mentioned that the other bridesmaid was supposed…

Thank God Moms Don’t Have a License Requirement…

I’ve joked in the past about how there should be a parenting test to try to weed out those who really shouldn’t have children. I realized this afternoon that I hadn’t considered one portion of the test that really would need to be included in this day and age. Needless to say, I failed it. Lucky me, today is a day off school for both my kids, so of course…

Grace, That’s Me!

As I was getting up to go to bed last night, I somehow tripped over the Swiss ball that was next to the coffee table. You mght ask why I have a Swiss ball next to my coffee table. Well, I’m in a wedding May 3 for one of my best friends, and we’re wearing satin dresses. I think that’s all the explanation anyone needs. And yes, I’m currently bouncing…

It’s Time to Redecorate

What’s a mom to do when your children bring home artwork? It’s cute, and you love it, especially when they’re in preschool. For the first month. Then you start to realize that they bring home at least one new piece of artwork every single time they go to preschool. If you’re really lucky, your kids head to daycare after school and make more art there. Add in additional children, stir,…

Ewwwww! You like *what*?

Sometimes, as moms, we know what we do is going to backfire. The fun is figuring out how exactly it’s going to backfire. I’ve been pretty strict with my kids in making them try new things. Our rule is that if Mommy makes it, you have to try it. It’s ok if you don’t like it, but you have to put a bite in your mouth, chew and swallow. You…

New Neighbor? Then you must want a scone!

First off, I’ll admit to using any excuse to bake. I love to bake, but I don’t like eating the finished product, especially not day after day. Granted, DH and the two wee ones definitely help out, but they don’t need the extra calories as often as I enjoy baking. But there are times when I can finagle ways to ahem have my cake and eat it, too. I live…

I Jinxed It!

So around the new year, I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Because I Said So (http://mom2my6pack.blogspot.com/) where Dawn was talking about new years resolutions and how she wanted to lose weight this year. Well, duh. Do you know a woman who doesn’t want to lose weight? So I kept thinking about it. And yep, I decided I wanted to lose weight, too. And yes, me being me, I…

Don’t Ignore the FFFFFFT Sound!

First of all, a disclaimer. Yes, I know today is Saturday. Yes, I know I’m posting about something that happened much earlier in the week, but it took me this long to be able to laugh about it, so you’ll have to deal. Trust me, if you were in my shoes, you may not be laughing yet. Last Sunday, I was exhausted. I have two kids, ages 2 1/2 and…
