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". I told myself to hold it together this morning…no matter…

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…

One of “Those” Bloggers….

For the past couple of weeks, I have turned into one of “those” bloggers. You know…the bloggers who take the time to update their own blog but do not go and visit all of the blogs of those who make comments. I really believe that it is important to frequent the blogs of those who…

Meatballs Need Friends

  Why is it that all that I can think about when writing this post is the You Tube video of Faith Hill recently telling off a concert groupie for groping her husband? I know, I have the mind of a 5th grader, don’t I? We went to an Italian restaurant a couple of years…

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. I watched her original show and the follow up show afterwards and was immediately hooked. I wanted to learn more. Next, I bought…

My Baby

  For some reason it is really hitting me today that Ella is a toddler. She is no longer my little infant baby. She’s walking all over the place, full of joy and laughter, and she now has an attitude to match her sister’s. I wish they could stay this little forever. I am trying…

Resource Revisited

  Awhile back, you may have read my review about the summer edition of EAT magazine.  I am coming back today to rave about this magazine. Things have been crazy in our house this month and as much as I love cooking, it is one of those things that is getting pushed to the back…
