Sickies have Fallen Upon the Household

My six year old has been sick for a few days now, he seems fine at end of day but during day he has horrible sickies. A tummy ache and when he got to school yesterday he threw up so he is home and it’s been a change for sure. Yesterday was my one day a week I can work all day but Mom duties called me so while the boy stayed with his Dad for the morning hours I worked my butt off, have to pay them bills. Then afternoon hours he napped so I worked in office around […]

I Became Guilty of Being Somewhat Lazy

I guess using the word lazy isn’t really fair when you think about being Mom to three kids and working from home, but it’s the only word I could really think of to describe the habit I got into for a long time. You see, over the years my daughter‘s Dad just sort of handled everything. I got into the habit that he was great at being in control so why bother? Then as my daughter got older and we formed a closer bond of communication, I found out that she didn’t really want me to take the “back burner” […]

A Celebration fo Love and Marriage

Saturday was the day. February I believe is the month it all started … marriage that is. My Mom remarried for the first time since her and my father divorced when I was a little girl. The new step Dad seems nice but we hadn’t really gotten to know him nor his family too well since they have been together. August 25th was the date, the date to get to know my Mom’s new in laws, or like I call them, the new family editions. There was food, laughter, entertainment, horses, champagne and kids. I met my new step sister, […]

And the Schedule Changes Again

When Summer vacation started I had to go back to working nights, meaning that my thinking cap had to work after a long, busy day with kids rather than at the start of a day leaving me some alone time after kids went to bed. Now it seems with Summer I do not get that alone time as often as I did during the school year but that does not mean I am not having fun. This week Summer school begins for my middle child, so that means a new schedule to get used to. The good news is that […]

If Only the Big Bad Wolf Was Real…

My three year old son is obsessed with the big bad wolf, if you ask him he will tell you he “isn’t scared of anything, not even the big bad wolf”. Then he will proceed to tell you that he will just punch him in the face. This kid has a mouth on him the size of Texas, no joke. Since he will be in preschool soon, hopefully, I am working on figuring out how to properly redirect his amazing imagination with a less mouthy touch. It’s. not. working. yet. The other night I needed to cook dinner because the […]

Flying Is Me, Off to Type-A Conference #typeacon

Today is the day, I am hopping onto a plane and flying to Type-A Parent Conference. I will arrive in NC one day before the conference actually starts which will give me time to settle in and get used to being away from my sons. I have a feeling I will cry like a baby when I say goodbye to them, as I am scheduling this blog post before I leave so who knows what reaction I will have. I am used to being away from my daughter, after all this weekend is her weekend with her Dad so I […]

Best Buddies

My sons are two years and six days apart, they are always together and as Fall comes when the oldest of the two will head to Kindergarten, I wonder if the little one will miss his best buddy. I love moments watching them bond, they are either hugging or hitting each other but it never fails at the end of the day they love each other and call each other best buddies. I love these boys! Growing up I had a sister, I never had  a brother. Okay there was this one time back in the day when my Dad […]

Enjoying Grampa’s in Vermont

The boys and I headed to visit my Dad last week and while I went to upload some pics to share with you in this post I happened to find another pic of the two boys from March 2010, so a little over a year ago while we were out and about visiting Dad at the farm in Vermont. It’s funny how you don’t think about how much your children have grown when you see them every day. Here is a picture of the two boys last week at the farm… They have grown so much, you see in this […]

Happy Tuesday

Oh my goodness it seems life is just flying by for me lately, where did yesterday go? Although I am excited for time to fly by because it is Winter in NH and let me tell you what, I do not “DO” cold. I love the view of snow from my windows but that is about it. I refuse to drive in the snow unless I have to and I just quite simply dislike dressing up in super warm clothing, all those layers just to feel comfortable in negative temperatures simply is not my thing. I have a lot going […]

e.p.t “Moment You Knew” Story Sharing

Welcome to my post about e.p.t Moment You Knew blog tour! Today I get to not only share with you  my personal story of how it went down when I first found out I was pregnant with my first born child but also hear a bit more about what e.p.t is up to.

I received a cute little keepsake pocket just like picture above, which you will see a semi-blurry picture of […]
