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… Read More One Moment, Please
Suck the life out of every day. Leave no opportunity undone. Do things you are afraid to try. Just touch the whale spit!… Read More Seize the Day, Make Memories, 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,… Read More For Sale
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… Read More Celebrating Summer with a YES Day!
So many times I find myself trying to cram so much into my spare time. I mean, who doesn’t? We have such little free time.

I feel alive in the woods. I feel comfortable in the woods. I feel peaceful in the woods. My favorite way… Read More Take a Hike
I think it’s so funny to think about the little memories that I cherish from my childhood. I remember sitting on my dad’s lap watching M*A*S*H. 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… Read More Making Memories One Cheese Ball at a Time
Like my fellow blogger Elise, I love Valentine’s Day because I love telling people I love them! I just love the love. I’m also a bit sappy and cheesy so I take full advantage of this special day. I tend to get a lot of craft and activity ideas from my fellow bloggers and Elise… Read More Making Valentine’s Day Memories
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… Read More Better Late Than Never
Tomorrow is a big day for me my daughter. It’s picture day at school! If you know anything about me by now, you know I’m always prepared for events like this. Hahaha! Ok so back to reality. I don’t even know if she has clean clothes to wear to the pictures! Since I have to run out… Read More It’s Picture Day!
