I was able to surf the website T-shirts.com to see what shirt I may want to review on my site here as a way to introduce you all to these funny, vintage, band and other cute t-shirts that T-shirts.com offers. My choice? After looking on T-shirts.com and thinking about what shirt I wanted to share with you all, I finally chose Thing 1.

Upere Wedge Sneakers for Tween, Mom and Woman #stylish #review @upereltd

Product provided for free. All opinions are my own. My daughter is at that age where style is important, the thing is that she isn’t meaning style as it pertains to outsiders, it is style as it pertains to her unique personality and in all honesty that may mean the girl has high chunk platform boots on with sweat pants type shorts and a fancy tank with her big sunglasses to boot. It’s something that makes peoples heads turn for sure and makes me wonder why in the world I encourage her to be creative, independent and unique.  The daughter’s […]

School House Rock Live Jr at Opera House

My tween is in her first show, a real show. Not that of a school play but a real life Opera House production … School House Rock Live Jr and the shows are this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That means … she has five shows over a three day period of time. Not to mention the endless evening hours she has spent at rehearsals. It’s been an experience for her and me, to say the least. I am happy to say that once this show is over, she has firmly stated that she is not to do any activities […]

A Parental Test of the Tween and Four Year Old

God forbid I want to wear my own dang boots in the middle of the snow storm we got hit with yesterday. God Forbid that I do not allow my daughter to wear said boots because they are 1) mine and 2) not hers. Good point, right? Not clearly enough for this tween. I was all impressed, got up on time with my alarm clock. Boys both got dressed when I asked them to. Both boys got their shoes on. Their coats on. They ate breakfast. They did their mouth rinse. They listened very well and even had extra time […]

One, Two, Tween

I have such a wonderful time with my kids, each moment they are home, they are my world. My one priority, all of my attention is put on the kids when they are home. Now that I have the most amazing man ever in my life, I have sort of taken in two more children. Now there are five. Mind you, my sons are the youngest which means they are their own little “team” together, while the big kids play with the boys and interact, they are still sort of in a little kid league of their own. Meet the […]

This is What I Get to Look Forward to #blendedfamily

The boyfriends daughter is 11 and my daughter is 10, they get along just as good as their parents do. The boyfriend and I hit it off immediately, being so much a perfect match that we didn’t think twice about moving forward together. The kids matched up so perfectly that we, again, were caught just rolling with the punches. Nothing has been had to be planned with us, for the most part, other than we have to find a rental for when Spring hits. The kids are insanely happy, I am insanely happy – everyone involved in our new Happily […]

Proud Mom Moment – I Think I am Behind the Scenes

My daughter is extremely talented, she has a love for so many things. Kiara reminds me of how I was and still am, a woman of many talents and passions. Most recently Kiara auditioned for a part in Schoolhouse Rock Live Jr, which is a broadway production all cast by kids, this means the whole production is run by kids. The kids do the costumes, the props and the acting! It’s such a wonderful experience and since we adore School House Rock, it was a no brainer that my daughter wanted to audition. The audition was private, meaning I did […]

The Overachiever Child and Proud Mama

My first born is your typical first born child who exhibits qualities of leadership, the need to succeed and is known as Mom Junior around the home. I am found constantly reminding Kiara to not grow up too fast, to let me worry about the adult things in life and just be a kid. I want so much for all three of my kids to enjoy being a kid, to do their best and when making mistakes to learn from them. My daughter is the best ever, she excels at everything she puts her mind to and has many talents. […]

Walking Down Memory Lane with my Daughter

There is a new thing I have been doing with my daughter to help us have more mom/daughter time and that is each night not only do I continue with our normal bedtime routine we have that involves stories out of one of our Chicken Soup for the Soul books, bedtime kisses and a song sung to her, but now she gets 10-15 minutes of unlimited ramble/talk time. Having three kids, two of which being young boys that require a lot of my attention can make my oldest and only daughter feel as if she doesn’t ever get time with […]
