I Thought That Was Only in the Movies…

You know when you see kids do gross/strange things in movies and  you’re like, “pff, that doesn’t really happen…”   I put Gwyneth down for a nap a few days ago and heard the usual singing that occurs before falling asleep. Except  instead of silence after a few minutes, I heard screaming and crying and a […]

Done With The Boobs….(just about)

Nursing our babies was both challenging and rewarding. My goal in nursing both of our children was to make it to a year. My pediatrician recommended a year, if possible, so that was the goal I set for myself. I realize this is not possible for every mother and whatever is chosen for each situation […]

Being Alone

My husband had to suddenly leave town for about five days a couple weeks ago, which of course I dislike. In fact, it just downright sucks. I start to think crazy things when it is just the kids and I at night and I can never fall asleep until pretty late. What if someone were […]

WHERE are all the socks!?

  While folding laundry I am guaranteed to be left with at LEAST one pesky sock that doesn’t have a match. But, where does it go? It’s not in the dryer, it’s not near the dryer, it’s not under the bed, it’s not on the floor… where is it!? And this doesn’t happen with just […]

I am going to tell you a story. A few nights ago I was at the grocery store doing a little child-free shopping and once finished I headed for the shortest line to check out. A few seconds after I chose my line a young man got in line behind me. I glanced over my […]

Shots and Cones

Baby Cal recently had his one year checkup. This usually means waiting in the room for quite a bit while we wait for the doctor.   The actual checkup goes pretty quickly, and our little man checked out just fine. The absolute worst part of the visit is of course, the shots. Somehow I have […]

What Went Down as a Vendor at My First Craft Fair

Come See Us at the Spring Boutique Craft Fair Today and Tomorrow!

It is no secret that I LOVE craft fairs. Finding unique treasures that people have created themselves makes me happy and when I find something special that I can bring into our home I gladly support the local artists, vendors and crafters. This weekend is the Spring Boutique Craft Fair here in our town and […]
