Making More Time for Things That Matter

As a Mom who decided that sending my kids with a school lunch from home was a more feasible and healthy option, I have found some nights that I simply do not want to make these kids lunches.

I had a dilemma, I wanted to continue to make home school lunches for the kids, but I didn’t want to be spending hours every night making all three kids lunches. What is a Mom to […]

Flour, Sugar, Butter, and Pure Laughter

Last night my son’s weren’t too happy about the lack in after school snack upon their pick up from school. You see, my sons get out of school ready to eat their arm off because they are just so hungry. I usually grab something quick and this particular afternoon, I used some change to grab them each 2 munchkins from Dunkin Donuts. Wrong choice. Total meltdown over not wanting such a treat. I was in shock, figured they would have been excited to have a random small treat. Nope. They were upset, but using my Mom skills they finally accepted […]

{Mama and Son Time} Making Pizza with my Boys

I used to have a tradition that every Friday we would make pizza or at least have pizza for dinner. I really miss this tradition, but while money is tight for now with the new home purchase, we will attempt to do our best to make it a once a month event or maybe twice a month for now. I purchased pizza crust from Market Basket, pizza sauce, shredded cheese and some pepperoni slices earlier in the day. I set up the crusts on pan as well as sauce and cheese in two bowls so that the boys could have […]

Trying to Eat Healthier as a Family

My family and I are really on this “eating healthier” kick, no we are not going all crazy but we are trying to eliminate the easy boxed meals that were predominately our world up until a month or two ago. Sure we still have an occasional boxed mashed potatoes mix or the hamburger helper packages from time to time; I don’t believe we will ever be 100% anti-boxed meals. With that being said, we are trying to be about 65 – 70% healthier with our food choices. I haven’t ever been the parent who buys chips or sodas by the […]

Celebrating Turning 11 Years Old, 11 Days After Birthday

This past weekend my daughter had her 11 year birthday celebration! Some family came and her friends came. There were snacks, music, fun and laughter – cake and ice cream and presents. Miss Ki got all dressed up in my skirt and an old shirt I had given her as she waited for guests to arrive… My little girl isn’t a little girl anymore … I can’t believe she is now 11 and that next year she will be in Junior High. Sigh. After Miss Ki got all dressed up she proceeded to the backyard to ensure her birthday picnic […]
