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 […]

Then afternoon hours he napped so I worked in office around […]

Sometimes Wednesday Late Afternoons Suck

Now I am a positive person and I have semi-thick skin when it comes to my kids and the things they do or say, however, on Wednesday when my four year old spends the morning with his Dad then goes to pre-k in the afternoons, I sometimes schedule work and meetings as it’s the only full day I get each week to put forth towards work. Working from home takes a lot of motivation, dedication and you have to give n take. That means, as much as I would love to be there when the K-man is dropped off to […]

A Visit with the Dad During Sheila’s Visit

Sheila and I went to visit my Dad on my birthday, he wasn’t there right when we arrived so she was able to bear witness to those who frequent the farm. It was a good time, happy that someone besides me was able to witness just how friendly the farm is. Always welcoming, no matter who you were and where you are from. Sheila was joking with me about how she needs me to write down my family tree because when it comes to that side of my family, I call almost everyone uncle, even those not blood related. After […]

Happy Birthday To My Dad

Today is my Dad’s birthday and ever since I turned 30 in October he realized that this day was coming when he would turn 50 years old. I love him dearly and think he will forever be a big kid. Today is my Dad’s special day and I hope everyone wishes him a Happy Birthday! There is this one quote that always reminds me of my father and today I will share that with you all: He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. ~Clarence Budington Kelland Happy birthday to the man […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
