I learned to Slow Down and Blog in 2012

Posted on January 2, 2013 at 3:51pm 0 Comments

This post was originally published on my blog, Mom on the Make, on December 4th, 2012.

Blogging takes the mundane happenings of every day life, and makes them special.

It is through sharing our stories and photos that the beauty of our lives shine. Before my blog, I was not clear on the significance of journaling and writing in our daily quest to stay sane as Moms.

Now, it is crystal clear.

The truth is, as Moms, we are crafty, resourceful, …


Halloween 2012 in our house

Posted on November 2, 2012 at 2:21pm 0 Comments

Halloween 2012 with my little ones.

So another Halloween has come and gone.

Costume decisions, Halloween crafts, pumpkin carving stencil choices, trick or treating plans, and costume parades at school.  So much excitement for the elementary school age set.  And so much relief when it is OVER for the parental set of said kids.

I don’t know about your kids, but the discussions about what to dress up as for Halloween are too numerous for anyone’s own good.

We are to…


Fainting over Ice Cream

Posted on October 11, 2012 at 9:45pm 0 Comments

I'm spending time each week recounting childhood memories in my posts.  This particular memory involved fainting and my favorite flavors of ice cream........

When I was about 9 years old, I fainted at the local Thrifty store.

I had just finished my softball practice in the blistering summer sun, and my Mom took me to our local Thrifty store, so that I could grab a cone of double chocolate malted crunch and pistachio ice…


The Breezy Park Morning

Posted on September 14, 2012 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

I am sitting on a redwood bench in a local park on a perfectly sunny day.

The bench is painted a chocolate brown color.

The large screws that hold the seat to the base are painted over with the brown paint as well.  This must be an older bench.  It appears to be on its third coat of paint at least.  It is secured to the cement ground by large steel legs.

In front of my bench is a large expanse of beautiful, perfectly manicured green grass.  The shadows from the…

Bamboo? That is a great idea - so creative! The fact that you have drawings vs. photos really makes your blog stand out.  I can tell from your writing that you are a very creative and expressive person.  I love that you provided the info about James Patterson's 'Read Kiddo Read' website .  I am a literacy teacher and am always looking for more resources to pass along!

Thank you so much Melinda!  I am so happy to hear that message resonated with you!  I am dying to know about your pictures.  Are you the artist?

Hi Melinda! It looks like we have a lot in common.  I take my iphone or ipad into the washroom to write in peace because I, too, find it therapeutic!  I started my blog in May 2012 and have two kids (11 and 14).  I'm guessing you are an artist?  I come from a family of artists.  I'm heading over to your blog to check it out!


Take care,

Ida Mae
