Life After Child Loss: Four Months Later

This weekend, I went to the wedding of our friends. It was a beautiful wedding, full of life and laughter and love.

But something struck me as I watched Lisa’s mom be escorted to her seat at the front of the church. Followed by Lisa, in her beautiful gown, her dad by her side.

I’ll never see this for her. My little girl won’t get a wedding. We’ll never have a chance to talk about dresses, or flowers, or guest lists. Hell, I won’t even know if that’s what she wanted – the big…

The children are watching

Ever think about the things your child may say or do, or even the personality they develop over time. How much of that do you attribute to genes? How much of that do you attribute to learned behavior or learned response? When people say, “you got it honest,” in reference to…

Top 5 Things I Learned in My First Year of Blogging + GIVEAWAY!

My Rose Colored Shades Turns One

It's hard to believe that it's already been a year since I published my very first post on My Rose Colored Shades. Technically, this past Friday marked my first year of blogging but it felt more appropriate to celebrate it today. I still remember when I started out, I knew next to nothing about blogging. I just knew that I had a myriad of thoughts and ideas in my head and in my…

Playdate IQ: Tips for Planning the Best Playdates for Moms and Kids

One of the biggest reasons why I left the “office” world to work for myself was to have more opportunities to spend quality time with my little guy. I love having the best of both worlds – being able to get tons of work done (and feel like a really productive mama) while still planning super fun days with him. And one of our favorite things to do on our days together is to plan a playdate with a friend or…

Good morning friends,

So today, I am going to do something different. I could sit here and write about how I spent the weekend cooped up in the house, with the kids, because hubby was working. I could go into detail about how I made massive progress on my writing and how I started a new book.…

Getting him to his "tipping point" to apply what he has learned to other situations.

A few years ago there was study that concluded that if a certain percentage of an audience stood up for a standing ovation, then the entire audience would follow. I did some really brief research…

Baby’s First Instrument

Occasionally, parents ask me a very important question: What instrument is the best one to be a child’s first?  You may be surprised to learn, the answer is not as straightforward as it appears.

As a voice teacher and kids music performer/teacher I always recommend a piano in the home.  The reason I make this suggestion is that having an instrument especially a piano in the home and/or visiting a weekly class where your…

A Sad Happy Birthday

Today I am wishing a Happy Birthday to somebody very special.

My cousin, Christopher.

He was a large piece of my life growing up and he was a big part of everybody heart.

Notice the word "WAS." See, Christopher is no longer with us. Not since 2003. In January 2003, somebody cut his life short by coming into his house and murdering him in the night with a knife. I can still remember being taken out of my class in high…

Tame my Curly Hair please!

This is a subject I know tons about and got through with little to no stress, why? Well because I learned from my mother's mistakes.

Managing my daughters soft, full, thick and curly hair.

Hair is always such a stressful thing to work with.

I was looking through some old pictures and decided to share a list of all the tools I used to get my mornings off right, stress free and fun when I did my daughter's hair.

No tears, no struggles, no…

Spin Master - Zoomer / Shadow 2.0 Review

My kids are always excited when a new toy shows up on our doorstep. Especially when they see it advertised on television, and they can say, "hey, I've tried that!"

Failure to see social cues gives him a unique kind of honesty.

In yesterday’s article, I mentioned how our son has a difficult time with evaluating situations in a middle ground, not just one and ten, good and bad, black and white. It can be a source of…

My Year of Weight Loss Struggles

Sigh. The past 12 months have made up one of the hardest years for me mentally, emotionally, and physically. It's tested me in ways that I can't wrap my head around. You know those years that you think, "I could totally do that year over again, knowing what I know now, and it would have been completely…

Family Fun Day at Medieval Times

I know it's been VERY quiet over here these past few days, and I will get into all of that on my next post. But before I went on blogging hiatus I had planned on writing about our fun family trip to Medieval Times. My husband and I decided last Friday (September 5th) to take our daughter for her first trip to Medieval Times as a special treat before she became a big sister.  We didn't tell her anything about it until we were in the car...and boy was that too early! For the next hour…

I’ve been debating on writing this post, but I also keep telling myself that when I started this blog, I was going to write differently, I wasn’t going to be afraid of being open and honest..Things are different this time, and I need to stick to what I promised myself.

Many of you know that a few weeks ago I quit my job of many years to peruse the beauty of being a stay at…
