When my husband and I were in Las Vegas recently for our wedding anniversary, what we wanted most was a day by the pool. We picked Mandalay Bay because we heard it had a good pool and it turned out to be true. In the morning we laid out on lounge chairs and floated in the wave pool. After lunch we thought about…Continue

It's been a crazily long time since I blogged here... and I am feeling guilty. In fact, so guilty I am scared I'll be rejected...
Though please don't - I am nice really!
However, it has been a crazy time too. If I'm honest, probably the worst couple of years of my life. Not that you need to know about those.
And also the best too.
I have now published a novel, and I am really excited. You can follow links to find it if you so wish (it is warm and funny and…Continue

My eldest son's flatmate played a (not very funny) practical joke on him this week - he hid something which my son then frantically hunted for, not understanding how it could not be where he had left it.
When I saw him later that day he was distraught about his "loss" - so I offered to take his keys and look for it for him.…

It's an Indian Summer, Native American summer? Is that a thing? here for sure. Hot hot heat and unbearable humidity. Well hello, Ohio...you've surely skipped spring. Fortunately the heat and the small children give me a free pass to frolic in the hose like an overgrown hillbilly in a retro bikini (I'm sure Mod Cloth had an entirely different image for their product), but since the only beach in southern Ohio belongs to the muddy, chemical dump...a.k.a the Ohio river, I'll take the…Continue

Once upon on time I knew I could fly. If I closed my eyes,wished hard enough, and said the magic words, I could fly. I knew because Anton told me I could.
Once upon a time, I knew I'd be the best prima ballerina, an Oscar winning actress and a millionaire. I knew I could do it, because Anton told me I would.
When we were young, my uncle Anton was my life coach, my playmate, my teacher, my inspiration and my partner in crime. He assumed in the most nonchalant…Continue

For many parents, separation anxiety is a big concern - you know, the behaviour which involves the child clinging on to you and refusing to let go? Okay, maybe that's dramatizing it, but that's exactly what it feels like when you are trying to take a shower or eat dinner. Little Dude has spent most of his time with me, and I am what you can call an advocate of natural/attachment parenting, so he definitely has separation anxiety. I'm just waiting for him to grow out of it, simply…Continue

School is out! How will you keep your kids physically active this summer?

Could you feed your children on one dollar per child per meal?
I know it would be a struggle in my home with five kids and a husband. But millions of American parents may have to tell their kids “there’s nothing to eat tonight.” In this land of plenty, it's hard to believe this could happen.
Here’s a little background:
• Last week both the House and…

Yesterday was Camryn's first birthday. I can't believe I made it through a year of parenting! I feel so accomplished. If anyone had told me how hard it truly is I may have thought twice. We had therapy yesterday and celebrated her birthday there and after we took her to my husbands office to show her off. I can't believe we've been going to therapy for almost a year. We started when Camryn was only 2 weeks old. At this point I feel like her therapists are part of our extended family. Today,…Continue

Traveling with a toddler is brutal, especially alone. You would have thought I learned my lesson after this debacle, but apparently not. That's the thing with kids, you always give them second chances because you are blinded by love.
The last time I flew alone with my son, I swore I would never do it again. That was nine months ago. So he's changed, right? He would listen…Continue

I recently re-decorated my daughter’s bedroom on a TIGHT budget, and one of the biggest challenges I faced was finding curtain panels that were the right color/pattern AND budget-friendly. After scouring all of our local stores and spending hours searching online, I realized that I needed to adjust my plan. Unfortunately, I…Continue

I don't know about you, but mornings in my house are pretty busy. Between my husband, five kids, homeschooling, and house work I usually tend to forget all about breakfast. That is until around lunch time when I'm completely starving and ready to devour everything in…Continue

As I’m sure you heard, a devastating tornado blasted through Oklahoma yesterday, taking the lives of several and the possessions of many. One such person affected is a mom-to-be, due any day to give birth. And she lost everything in the tornado.
If you have any baby items that you no longer use and are willing to send her way, the address to send it to is:
