Bedtime Routine

Bedtime routines are important and also special.  I know as a parent there are some nights that are not as easy as other nights.  I try and remind myself before I know it they won’t want me to tuck them in bed and read them that same story book we have read 10,000 times.  There are those nights when I am tired and…

Get On Your Spicy Funk

It Is Time. 


Ben got me a pack of Starbucks’ Instant Pumpkin Spice Latte, so I can have this bad boy at home. And I’m good.


If you have ever met a poet, you will either notice that they are stupidly euphoric, or a bit on the…

Case of the. . .

Mondays. Glorious start to the work week. It took two hours today and I needed someone to approach me wearing their blue cornflower tie (Fight Club reference, I know) to put the cherry on the cake. Within two hours I have been peed on and then as I jumped back because a sudden warm flow still startles me, toddler cried. He used to laugh with delight when he got one of us. Now, I am afraid he is becoming self conscience about his potty moments. In the same time span, he used his limited…

Teenage Angst At Age 2?

Original Post:


Do not judge me for what I am about to say. It may sound horrible, but when I was pregnant, before finding out the sex of our daughter, I really wanted to have a boy. I did. I am sorry. Of course I knew that I would…

Two Under One

When I first found out that we would be having two children under the age of one; I will admit that I freaked out! And what does a mother do when she is freaking out?? Of course we go to the Internet and do a quick search, which inevitably leads to a complete panic.

That night, however, I didn't find anything. There is no advice for having two kids under the age of one. Perhaps, this is because they are both under one for a relatively short period of time. When my oldest turned one… Continue

My nighttime routine and two different babies

Earlier this week I took my girls in for their four month checkup and fifteen month checkup (I love when I can get them in both in the same day.) It blows my mind how fast time goes when you have babies. Both girls are healthy as can be and growing like crazy (they are super tall). Happy momma here!


For the past week or two, though, we have been struggling… Continue

Why It's So Important to Have an Efficient Digital Marketing Strategy

Most traditional business owners don’t have a full understanding of why it’s so important to have an efficient digital marketing strategy. As recently as the 1990s, it was not standard for all businesses to have a presence online, but today, an efficient digital marketing strategy has the power to make or break your business.


Think about it. How many mom-and-pop organizations in your area depend on the foot traffic that walks past their front door? For example, I grew up in…

Ricky’s Birthday: Cowboys, Ponies and Trampolines Galore

So I went a little all out for Ricky’s birthday this year. Given how difficult the spring and summer were – and the fact that we barely had any barbeques this year – I just wanted to have a fun little celebration for my little guy turning two.

So…I may have ordered some ponies. But just for the day! Not to keep. Much as my husband would like to have a pony in the backyard.

And yes, that’s true. A hobby farm is definitely on his bucket list. But that’s a story for another…

Rustic X Console

Sorry I have been missing in action.  It has been a crazy month. I just finished my latest projects for a customer.

She wanted a Rustic X Console table for a small area.  This is what we came up with.

It turned out…

Pregnancy Brain Strikes

Anyone who has had a new baby in their house knows about baby brain. The inability to remember things until you have already left the house or store, and the overall fog that takes over your entire thought process and makes coming up with an idea for dinner a Herculean task. I think that we also need to address Pregnancy Brain. As I sit here 20 weeks pregnant with my 5th child, I find that my grey matter has…

Why 'Mommy Sanest'?

During my daughters first year of life, I made the decision to step back from my old blog. I was struggling to manage new motherhood and this writing-on-the-Internet hobby I loved for so many years had become something I was failing to do—like all of the other things I was failing to do. So I quit.

But the siren song of blogging proved too much to resist.

By the time Emme was 20 months old, I was giving real thought to a new blog. I knew it was time to move on from A View from…

Five Reasons Why Adolescence Should Be Renamed The Art of Compromise

I have a 12 year old. He is not quite a “teenager” but for all intents and purposes, he acts like one (which is not all bad by the way – I happen to very much enjoy teenagers). I am deeply aware that I am firmly entrenched in early adolescence with my boy. Yesterday morning, he…

Cooking With Pumpkin


Except for a Halloween display and its use in Thanksgiving pies, pumpkin is rarely served in the US. On the other hand, Italians, who grow a great deal of pumpkins, serve it in a number of ways. Cucurbitaceae, the genus that includes pumpkins, squashes and edible gourds, has nourished people for centuries.

Of all of Italy's gastronomically diverse 20 regions, none utilizes the pumpkin…

Excuse me, but what is a fraction?


I was recently discussing curriculum with other "educators." I've purposely put the word educators in quotations, because an educator is one who teaches and teaching implies learning. Although educators deliver daily facts and other bits of information to their students, the delivery and curriculum combo may be the…

Our First Fight

We were married in May of 2003.  We were both twenty one years in age, looking back now we were so very young, my thinking then why wasn’t I married sooner.  It is amazing how you age and grow and until then have no clue of what adult life is like even though you think you have it all figured out.…

The Balance of Independence

As my Birth Day month soon draws to a close I wanted to sit for a moment and recap to myself what I thought were lessons I had learned this year. In the past just before my Birth Day arrives I review myself and my year and I give myself a grade.

Did I accomplish what I set out to do? Did I stick to my plans? How did I handle changes? Did I learn anything new? Did I help others? Did I make new friends and did I close any chapters in my life that needed…

Lessons from Star Trek I apply to being a parent of a child with Autism

I have been a Star Trek fan since it went into syndication in the late 1960’s-early 1970’s.  I remember watching it from when I was about four years old and have never stopped. Those days were exciting…

Amazon Fresh- Worth the Hefty Price Tag?

I love Amazon, we have been Prime members for years and we recycle an embarrassing amount of Amazon boxes each week. When I heard the Amazon Fresh program was available in my area I immediately signed up for the free 30 day trial, unsure if the program was really worth the hefty $299 yearly fee. After a few deliveries, this is what I’ve found.


-A nice assortment of shelf-stable items that are competitively priced to other grocery stores in my area. They carry the… Continue
