I’m in a strange place this summer, caught between excitement and nostalgia. My only baby will start Kindergarten at the end of August. The public school world of bus schedules, room parents and milk money awaits (among other things). I have many questions. Maybe I’ll ask the veteran moms across the street to spill their
Suck the life out of every day. Leave no opportunity undone. Do things you are afraid to try. Just touch the whale spit!
Despite what you might be thinking the title of this blog post is implying, I can assure you that I am not planning to sell either one of my beloved children. Not today anyway. However, ask me again tomorrow and you may get a different answer (yes, of course I’m kidding). All jokes aside though,
Two years ago, CTWM blogger Elise blogged about having a “Yes Day” with her son, a special day where she said “yes” to his requests, no matter how crazy they sounded. It planted a seed in my mind of something I’d like to try when my sons were older, but like so many other ideas

I am sure I had no idea why Klinger was dressing like a woman and that I didn’t even wonder. I remember browsing my parents’ 1984 encyclopedias and seeing a
I’m really lucky that I’ve been blessed with incredible in-laws. My father-in-law (FIL) and mother-in-law (MIL) are awesome and my grams-in-law was too. Unfortunately grams passed away this past Thursday and we laid her to rest yesterday. I was inspired by many of the posts here last week about remembering loved ones and the importance

So, I got my daughter’s baby book done this weekend. Pretty impressive, considering she’ll be three in May. Whoops. I have made two scrapbooks / memory books prior to this one. Full disclosure: I am a bit embarrassed about my love for scrapbooking supplies and pictures, but I had to give in to the unbridled
