Mommy Brain

After searching and searching all morning for my camera, I just found my camera in the refrigerator and the cream cheese where I keep the camera, up by my desk. It’s official… I’m losing it! My friends call this “Mommy Brain” which is connected to losing brain cells after you have children. Sure… I’ll say […]

Confession: I’m in love with the UPS man

Why does the UPS man always come during nap time? Why does he always have to be all crazy and ring the doorbell multiple times like a toddler with a new toy? Surely he knows that it’s naptime for the kiddo’s in suburbia. Is he trying to disturb their peaceful slumbers on purpose, which in […]

Help me spice things up with the hubby!

My sweet husband is constantly asking me what I want for Christmas. Even though I give him a suggestion or two here and there, he never seems to remember (or write it down, for that matter). The other day I was browsing the Smitten Kitchen blog and was oooohhhing and ahhhhhing during the tour of […]

When I grow up…

The kids and I were out this afternoon at a local grocery store. We were happily going along doing our grocery shopping when Jacob all of a sudden noticed someone painting a new display on the front of the store windows. It really was fascinating to watch, but I didn’t realize we’d have to drop […]

I Don’t Like Santa Claus… but he has nice shoes!

Our church had its annual Breakfast With Santa on Saturday morning. This is the perfect opportunity for kids in our parish to have some festive fun decorating cookies, playing reindeer games, and of course… sitting on Santa’s lap to convince him you’ve been a good kid and that he needs to bring you all the […]

Going Commando?

Our neighborhood holiday sleigh ride was last night. The holiday sleigh ride takes place every year in our subdivision and is a big hit with kids and adults alike. Santa comes, there’s plenty of hot chocolate and cookies, and everyone takes a ride through the subdivision on a horse drawn sleigh. It’s one of those […]

Games Required

Whenever we have friends over, it’s a given rule in our household that games are a must. I love to play games and don’t get to play them nearly enough. My husband groans when I head towards the game closet… he likes to play card games and strategy games. Games like Scrabble, Pictionary, etc. aren’t […]

Mommy Doesn’t Do Snow

My prayers for a sudden heat wave coming through Kansas City didn’t happen, so as predicted, schools were cancelled. This lead me on a quest to keep the kids entertained all day without going crazy. By 9am we had alredy played Candy Land 4 times, followed by several games of Ker Plunk, and then even […]

Ice Storm

It’s 5:02 pm on Wednesday evening. I’m looking out the window watching the traffic creep by on the icy roads. Ice… one of the things I don’t like about Kansas. Snow is one thing, rain is another, but ice storms are a completely different beast. Am I worried about the drivers? Yes. Am I concerned […]

Christmas Memories

As I was shopping for my kids today, trying to find the perfect Christmas gift, my mind wandered to my days as a child and what I remember from Christmas morning. Three presents come to mind when I think about my childhood. One of my favorite presents, although I don’t remember ever asking for it […]
