How To Avoid Sketchy Online Daters

The dating scene can be a pretty slippery slope, and most people with dating experience would gladly vouch for that. However, when you throw the Internet into the mix, the whole thing becomes even more sketchy. See, prior to the rise of online dating sites, the entire dating process took place in person with the exception of blind dates. It usually happened in a public place like a coffee shop or a park.

I literally had to bite my lip, […]

Siblings at their Best, Worst and Most Amusing Moments

Sometimes I sit back, watch and listen while my kids interact, more so with my two sons. My boys are 2 years and 6 days apart, both being born in August and they are extremely close.

It’s the most amusing time of my life watching as my sons continue along in their close brotherly bond. I never had a brother, just a sister who is four years younger than […]

Sharing my Queen Size Bed With Little Four Year Old

For some reason my four year old is really having a difficult time being alone anywhere. If he realizes I have left the dining room, he is on the mission to find me. He will whine because he is just so scared yet can not really formulate a good reason why he is scared to be alone. He is scared of his bed. Scared of his shadow. Scared of his bedroom. Scared of his closet. The list could go on forever. I honestly have little problem with him waking mid night and sleeping in my bed or sometimes even he […]
