Thrilling Thursday- today I am thrilled because I am giving myself permission to take a bubble bath.

1. What's the best and worst thing thing about growing older?
The best thing is knowing what I know. I know people come and go. I know true friends stick through thick and thin. I know that life is short, so enjoy it while you are here. I know that I am not perfect. I know that life is more beautiful through my kids' eyes. I know to…

Because baby cheetos are super delicious and nutritious! Um...
Well, it depends on who you ask. I like to use the term baby cheetos for those small baby puffs that you can find in baby food aisles in just about any store these days. If you hop on a forum like babycenter.com or ivillage.com, there will be someone who asks about feeding them to their child, and subsequently many…Continue

So, I accidentally shut the car door on Mgazi's fingers the other day. I am POSITIVE that she was more scared than hurt. Regardless, there was a lot of crying, comforting, and apologizing. She was crying. I was apologizing. She finally calmed down and said, "Mommy, I just don't understand WHY you would do that to me."
I said, "I didn't do it on purpose, Gaz. It was an…Continue

Today I actually left my desk at lunchtime to run some errands. I passed by a nearby child care facility where some toddlers were playing outside. They were chasing their teacher around the courtyard, giggling and squealing the entire time. I smiled to myself, knowing how my kids would likely be in the thick of it if they were there. Then I noticed her. A petite, chubby-faced little girl wearing a floppy hat, standing in the corner near the building’s entrance. She was smiling, enjoying…Continue

I'm compared to an old person a lot, because my favorite thing for breakfast is hot cereal. Maybe it's because I was never big on drinking milk- nonetheless have cereal with milk or something. But I was happy to have some Cream of Wheat, instant oatmeal, and stovetop grits. My parents were too busy for pancake and bacon breakfasts, so my family is really lucky I love them and make them a must for weekends (no bacon for me, turkey bacon for the boys). I rely on this instant oatmeal during…Continue

I do. I love Emily from Emily Jones Design. (Do you know of her? If not, you must check her out as she's an amazing mommy blogger!) Of course, we've never met. (Emily Jones & I, that is.) But, I am pretty sure if we did, we'd be instant besties. First of all, she's a graphic designer, too. And she even designs stationery and invitations (like me!) And she's super-duper fashion forward (OK, I strive…Continue

Why a random 14 day challenge in the middle of the month?
It hit me that I was getting slack. The passion and uumph had for DWP was waning because of outside distractions and setbacks. I’ve decided for 14 days I will do a something small, but significant to focus on being a woman of purpose and motivation. I encourage you to join in…Continue

Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!
We went on a treasure hunt to find Buried Treasure Cups using treasure maps that I had made earlier (see below on how to make the maps). We wore pirate bandannas, colored some pirate themed coloring pages (see below for a Pirate Ship Coloring Page), read …

Over almost the past year now I have been pushing myself to do more and to get my life back on track. Part of that, ok, a BIG part of that has been losing the weight.
I am very proud of myself and as of this writing I have 2.6lbs to go to my goal for a very near total of 65lbs GONE!
People ask me how I’ve done it and how I keep doing it and I tell them quite honestly what I do, which for me is Weight Watchers, but how I keep doing it is through motivation and a very stubborn…

Blatant rip off of Jerry Seinfeld here, but what is the deal with those online security questions lately?
They used to be so easy, so straightforward, like what’s your mother’s maiden name, high school mascot, or favorite pie?
But now these questions have gotten strange. Either the website designers are trying hard to foil the hackers or, as I suspect, they’re just really, really bored. What else could account for these bizarre questions?

No matter how much we try to shield them, kids today are bombarded with so many harmful influences.
The truth is that we can’t live in a bubble, nor is that ideal. Despite our best efforts, they will be exposed to dark and negative things.
The best we can do is to strengthen their immunity and give them tools to fight dark influences.

Have you ever noticed that by a certain age the greeting you get from friends and family is quickly followed by "Don't worry, we'll find you someone soon"? I could understand this if I was having a whiney day and complaining about my semi-permanant singledom, but when I ask if you'd like a coffee and your reply is "we'll find you someone" that's just weird!

Wonderful Wednesday - it is wonderful when our children do unexpected acts of kindness.
Each Wonderful Wednesday throughout the month of September I will be celebrating unexpected acts of kindness. This week I am celebrating unexpected acts of kindness from my children.
The first unexpected act of kindness was done by my teenie bopper when she was six years old. My husband and I had been married for twelve years at that point and he took me…
