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 […]

The Secret

  I will admit, I was one of the millions of people who jumped on "The Secret" bandwagon after Oprah had featured the author and other life coach professionals on her show.

Beat the Heat with Kool-Aid Slushies

My son had his tonsils and adenoids taken out this week. Because of that, and because of the major heat wave sweeping across the state, I have been on a mission to make treats that are soothing to a sore throat as well as cool and refreshing enough to help beat the heat. We have […]

Get Well Soon

  Jacob went in to Children’s Mercy hospital on Monday morning for surgery. He had his tonsils and adenoids removed, a hernia repaired and the veins in his nose cauterized. Talk about a triple whammy! He was really out of it on Monday, as can be expected, but yesterday he was back to his normal […]

Alpha Mom vs Slacker Mom

Alpha Mom – a modern mom who is confident and in control, a well informed decision-making multitasker. Hip, educated, technologically savvy, type A–personality mom. I know that this is completely against all things good about the feminist movement, but I have always wanted to be like June Cleaver, or our modern day example, (minus all […]
