Proud Mom Moments: Spelling Bee

My daughter is such an overachiever, I think she is much like me in that we get our mind set on something and refuse to do anything but our absolute best. Sometimes my daughter really thrives to be perfect, and that part of her personality can drive me bonkers at time. The fact that Kiara always wants to succeed but is now more accepting of knowing that she should be proud to have done her best is great to see.

{Random Thought} I am Obsessed with the Word Awesome

I don’t know if it has anything to do with the fact that I was born in the 80’s or if it’s just because I truly think I am awesome but I love the word awesome. I love this word so much that my middle child is often called “Awesome AJ” because of course both words start with A. I say the word awesome so much that my three kids have picked up the word and use it quite often as a definition for something they love or something I did to please them. Granted, I am happy that the […]

My husband has the option to do this on nights too, I have told him he obviously can get away too, the problem is apparently I am the only one who wants to be out of the house ALONE. My husband would prefer to go […]
