Good People, Make Bad Decisions

Good People Make Bad Choices

I look all over the Internet from Twitter to Facebook to Alexa hot list of links each day, every single day. One thing that I am seeing a lot of is this finger pointing. Did you know that when I was 18 years old that I got a DWI? How about my drinking of alcohol that started well before I even want to admit to anyone, because I know someday my children may read this and they do not need to know an age I started. My children do know that I started drinking alcohol and had sex way too […]

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 […]

Parenting Autism – The Cold Hard Truth, as He Sees It #autism #parenthood

Raising my son who has high functioning autism brings on a lot of jaw dropping, “did he just say that”, type of experiences. Sometimes, Aj can come off hurtful but really he isn’t meaning to be that way. At times Aj’s comments can be hilarious, but do not giggle at him, because then he will either act out at you angry due to being hurt, or he will be telling you with tears in his eyes “that isn’t funny”. It’s hard to parent a child who sees the world more simple than the rest of us do, he is part […]

Every Mom Needs A … Moms’ Night Out DVD Giveaway

I recently received a DVD copy of Moms’ Night Out and let me tell you what, I loved this film! I sat down for our movie night, popped Moms’ Night Out into the DVD player and laughed my butt off while I sat back in the recliner. I found myself relating so much to each of these Moms featured in the film, but in varying ways. I can totally see me behaving in such ways as each of these Moms in the film did from time to time in my own life. Moms’ Night Out is one of those movies […]

Separation Anxiety is a Pain in the Bum Bum

I love my children. All of them. Everyone knows this. You can see it in how I write about them, talk about them, and share moments with them. Sure. I adore my children and I adore being a Mama.  The only problem, thus far, out of all I have experienced up until this point of parenthood is that I cannot handle separation anxiety. Sure I can be tough on the outside and even trick my gut instincts to feeling secure with dropping a crying kid off for the day for school, I can do that. I have to do that. […]

My Boys Turned 6 and 8

So August was a busy month; in between preparing for Summer to be over and the kids to return to school, we had the boys birthdays. My son Aj turned 8 and my other son K-man turned 6. It seems like my kids are growing way too quickly, soon enough my daughter will be 12 and she is already 3″ shorter than I am. Sigh. The boys spend their actual birthday with their Dad, this allows each of our sons to have one day a year alone with their Daddy. So on K-man’s birthday I had the day with Aj […]

Time flies too quickly to not cherish every moment, […]

I Won’t Let Them Suffer for Any of my Insecurities #motherhood

It was that time of day, my 9am to 11am shift at Moms.com was over, it was a sunny, warm Thursday morning and the boys had been so patient, entertaining themselves while I worked for two hours within the same room as them. I knew I had to do something, but we have been to the family pool nearly every day this Summer, I didn’t want to pack up and drive over to Vermont, I wanted something different today. The boys deserved to go out and have fun, because four week days this Summer they will have to endure me […]

Because Sometimes Having Kids Makes you Go – Just Go Girl

This post is sponsored by the Role Mommy Writer’s Network but all opinions are my own! I recall having a discussion with one of my elder relatives as a teenager, it seems when we start having children that our bladders grow weaker. It only make sense, having all that weight shoving on our bladder for each pregnancy. My grandmother had four children and my mother had two. I … have three. As many have read, I do work out on a regular, as regular as I can with some drop outs in between. Working out, after having children, can cause […]

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, […]
