Picture a Day – My Sons in a Collage

My sons spend a lot more time with me due to their Dad’s work schedule. You see, my daughter’s Dad doesn’t really work per say or whatever he does, I have no clue but it leaves him having more time with Ki which means I barely see her some times, she hates that. A girl needs her Mom at this stage in her world, but explaining that to a first time parent? Have fun … so here are pics of my boys during their times with their Mama and together… they have an amazing bond that I admire and enjoy […]

Happy Birthday to My Mom

Today is Father’s Day but it’s also my Mom’s birthday, so I decided to write a short happy birthday post for my Mom because I can.  I also wanted to write a post because I thought of my Mom the other day while putting eyeliner on my daughter. Funny how the oddest moments can trigger some memory that really has little to do with what you were doing. For me, the memory was quite simple. I will start with this; do you hide presents during the holiday season for your kids so that they do not find them? Well I […]

Personalized Gifts for Valentine’s Day, Super Bowl and More

I am a sucker for M&M’s, aren’t you? I personally prefer their peanut M&M’s candy, slight crunch with the chocolate-ness yummies! As Valentine’s Day approaches and heck even the Super Bowl, it seems many may be looking for that special personalized gift idea. With a personalized package of M&M’s, your guests or loved one can enjoy their gift without having received something to collect dust on the shelf. While I understand the amazing love behind a personalized gift that you can cherish forever, I would much prefer a gift I can use, such as enjoying the flavor of M&M’s with […]

Dr Laura On YouTube Topic About Father Who is Now Loving Grandpa

I love this topic because I think it’s something that comes all too often for many of us. It seems sometimes parents are better at being grandparents than they were at being parents. Once we have children our kids are number one and we are no longer first on the plate, this is okay and actually wonderful. I am thankful for the words my father said to me when my daughter was born …. my father said something to me along the lines of “I may not have been able to figure out the father deal but I know how […]

What Kind of Gift Do You Give For Father’s Day?

Father’s Day is just around the corner and the question comes to mind, what do you normally get your loved one for Father’s Day? I must admit I am not big on spending money for gifts, I am more the “home made gift giving” kind of person. I usually will have the kids make their Dad’s a nice Happy Father’s Day card and sometimes my daughter even creates a “book” style card for her Dad on this special day. After we have made our gift cards I will take the kids to a local store to pick out something that […]

Father’s Day Watches

Okay so every Father’s Day the topic of watches comes up, seriously. I don’t know if I am not creative or what but the watch idea always comes to mind. Maybe it’s because I think men just can’t make places on time or are always late, who knows. Whatever the reason is there is a great watch idea for the special father in your life and that is a Tritium watch! You do want a manly watch for your father on Father’s Day, which by the way is coming up on June 19, 2011. I never keep up with dates […]

Home Depot Totally Rocks

I don’t think I ever told you that my daughter goes to those Home Depot workshops that they host once a month. It’s like the first Saturday of every month where your child can go in and create a new something or other. I know she created both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts last year at this Home Depot Workshop.  I love those workshops, I should start taking AJ as he is four now and would totally enjoy them! What I didn’t know was that Home Depot actually has Free Workshops for adults! Yes, yes it is true! You […]

Summer Vacation Weekend Fun

We had some weekend fun last weekend!! The kids enjoyed having aunti over for the whole weekend.

The kids, my sister and I spent the weekend between our Mom’s house and the pool at our Dad’s house, aka Grandpop! We had a blast swimming in the pool after spending some […]
