Did you Read to me When I was a Newborn?

My youngest is my mini Curious George, that is what I call him most days because he has such an inquisitive mind. The questions my dear son comes up with always amaze me, while also taking me back for a moment where I am at a loss for an answer. This is the child who has encouraged me to be more creative as a Mama and to have a more open mind about the life we live. K-man never allows this family to have a dull moment, and today I am going to talk about this one particular conversation we […]

What Does a Person on State Assistance Look Like?

There was a recent blog post spreading around Facebook about Food Stamps and that is what encouraged me to write this blog post. The post was about how judged a woman felt about using food stamps, because the man behind her uttered something negative about her using food stamps to pay for her groceries. It really is so sad that there are many entitled, judgmental people in this world that they think they can judge someone on a simple first glance of that person. I don’t think any of us  owe an explanation to anyone about our life nor our […]

Where Did People Come From Mama?

I am a huge advocate of showing our kids the various beliefs in our world, to the best of my abilities, so when we were sitting down to read our bedtime story and Aj asked; “Where did people come from? Like how did the first person get on this Earth, Mama?” I paused. Then I had to figure a way to answer, “well buddy, there are a lot of different beliefs. Some believe God created the first humans, but others feel it’s more science based.” Aj says, “yeah like we started somehow from little bugs, but how does that happen, […]

Such Wonderful Progress and Gold Star Person

I am a human that thrives on seeing results from any of my actions. Meaning I am that “gold star” type personality more often than not. I don’t need praise, but I do like to see that anything I am doing is helping someone, somewhere, somehow. I feel blessed to know that in the parenting world of my life, I am constantly rewarded for my decisions and parenting style. My kids are such amazing children, they make it easy to love and adore them, while they make mistakes, they are always somewhat ready to accept that mistake as a learning […]

How Much I Love My Children

I love my children so much that; I allow them the distance to make mistakes. I love my children so much that; I teach them to accept not everyone will like them. I love my children so much that; I allow them an open forum to speak their opinions freely & openly. I love my children so much that; I grew to be the example I want them to live by. I love my children so much that; I encourage them to try  new things by overcoming any anxious feelings. I love my children so much that; I allow them […]

My Daughter Being Silly Singing her Made up Song

This past weekend we had a blast with family time, more posts about our trip on Saturday to Chuck E. Cheese’s coming soon but for today I share with you the video of my daughter singing a song that she just started singing aloud. You see, we were all seated around the dining room table playing with pretend clay when my daughter started making fruits, then a taco and a plate of spaghetti out of her modeling clay. Apparently that was enough inspiration for her to start singing this little tune … Can you tell that she is my daughter? […]

Inspired, Proud, Happy: A Sister Turned Mom

My sister is four years younger than me, since I am going to be 32 in October I do believe that means she just turned 28 in July.  My sister had been told most of her teenage years and adult years that she would not have a baby, the chances were so ridiculously low that she pretty much accepted that she would never mother a child. My sister made a fantastic auntie to my children, but, as most are aware, nothing is the same until you have raised a child of your own. Something about giving birth to a child […]

God Creating Mothers

I read this somewhere and just had to share because I think it’s beautiful… “When God Created Mothers” When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of “overtime” when the angel appeared and said. “You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on this one.” And God said, “Have you read the specs on this order?” She has to be completely washable, but not plastic. Have 180 moveable parts…all replaceable. Run on black coffee and leftovers. Have a lap that disappears when she stands up. A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to […]

When All Else Fails … Color

Here we are on Tuesday and it’s really a Monday, I have a full day of work now with the exception of a lunch break to meet for my youngest son’s school drop off. I hope to get a lot of work done today, but as usual I am juggling many things at once. On days like today it’s so important for me to look back at pictures of my family and happy moments to remind myself what it is I truly am blessed to have …. love! This picture above is one I colored with my six year old […]

Loving People Just To Love Them

The day you are born into this world, you have this unconditional love at first sight moment with your parents. After that first bond with your parents, the extended family come to visit and eventually you learn to love them for who they are. Not one moment, as a baby or even a young child, do you ever question loving these people nor do they question loving you. It’s all very simple from the beginning, but I have to ask, where at what point does loving your family unconditionally stop? It does stop. Not for all, but based on conversations […]
