Let's Color Together with Gymboree

The oldest of our little boys is getting ready to start school.  I can hardly believe that he is old enough for head start.  Where does the time go?  I know he’s ready to go though even if I’m a little nervous about sending him off. Thanks to Gymboree for sponsoring today's post with some [...]

I’m not doing ok today.

I can't "be ok" today. It's not happening. Grief is bubbling out of me like a fountain today and I cannot fight it.  It needs to flow. The reality that both my parents are gone is just overwhelming me. The reality and the pain. The heartbreak. It sucks. My dad died on April 12. I [...]

I was talking to my sister a few weeks ago and sharing my feelings (whining)about our end of summer meal rut. It happens every year, but usually if I say something to her, she'll remember something she made when her kids were younger and be like "oh hey! my kids used to love...." and then [...]

Get Kids Out to Play

I grew up outside- probably one of the last 'generations' to do so.  Most of my childhood memories are with neighborhood kids, climbing trees (I always went higher when I got scared and couldn't get down), playing in the old coal bin, and making forts in the forsythia shrubs that seemed to be in mass quantity [...]

Just Say It and See It With The XFINITY Voice Remote

When I was growing up, we still had black and white televisions! We were one of the first families who had a color TV. We had these big bay windows in the front of the house with beautiful breezy white curtains adorning them. The kids from the neighborhood would come up on the front porch [...]
