Unoriginal

  I am so unoriginal. I know that many of you out there are great creators of recipes. Yes – I throw things together and create some yummy meals, but when I do that I never write it down or would not be able to recreate exactly what I did to perfection. I have always […]

We Made It!

The first day of Kindergarten came and went and we made it. Jacob walked into the school and together we walked all the way down the long hall to his classroom. He hung his backpack outside of his room and by the time I turned around he had walked right inside his room…without even saying […]

Anticipation

  If it wasn’t completely obvious by my last post, I had myself all worked up about Kindergarten over the weekend.  In my mind, I had imagined every "worst case scenario" and had cried buckets of tears stressing about the "First Day of Kindergarten Event".

Comfort Me

My baby starts Kindergarten tomorrow. At one point recently, I did not think that Kindergarten was going to be that big of deal. The school we go to still has half day Kindergarten, so I get my boy back every afternoon. As the time has neared, and as we have gone to the Kindergarten Round-Up […]

Less is More?

  The concept "Less is More" and I just don’t see eye to eye. Did you know that when you are shampooing your hair if you cannot get the shampoo to lather, you need to add more water, not more shampoo? I’m always piling on more shampoo! Oh – and those concentrated cleaning products where […]

Good Hair Day

  If you are anything like me, how well your hair behaves for you in the morning can be a great predictor of how your day is going to go. If my hair falls limp and is unmanageable before I even walk out of the bedroom, I know the day ahead is going to be […]

Bubbles

  It is less than one month before school starts. I cannot believe how fast this summer flew by, and I know that once Kindergarten starts, the next 14 years will go by just as quickly. Jacob got the "green light" from his doctor to get back outside and to be active again after his […]
