I mentioned a couple weeks ago that my little guy turned 6. As is our tradition, I decorated up a cake for him. I decided that I’d be brave and attempt a 2-layer cake, which I haven’t done in AGES. With good reason. But not being one to shy away from a creative challenge, I [...]

Happy Birthday to Mommy’s little snuggle bug. Yup, my little guy is now 6 years old. That sounds so old…and yes, I can hear those whose ‘babies’ are 17 years old laughing at me. But for myself…6 seems very old. It’s probably because he’s smaller than average that it’s especially difficult for me to grasp, [...]

I was motivated to clean up my craft area because my mother-in-law wanted me to help her with some scrapbooking. I haven’t had my area in a workable state for some time. My husband got these leftover cubicle parts from work so we now have 2 cubbies in our basement office. While he was setting [...]

…but I take leave to disagree. I have thrown down the gauntlet and suggested an “Ugliest Bird Contest”. So look at my ugly bird photo. Then go look at Nancy’s ugly bird photo. Then vote by leaving a comment on the post which you believe has the ugliest bird. That means coming back here to [...]

I have been told that I should add this bit of the story. I thought I had humiliated myself enough in my previous post and could safely leave it out, but full disclosure has been requested, so here it goes. Yet another reason for your kids to be glad I’m not their mother. Okay, so [...]

Somehow, I don’t now how, my older son turned 7 yesterday. I’m sure it was only 2 or 3 months ago that I held my first baby in my arms and decided I’d like to keep him there forever. And surely it was only last week that he was learning to walk and talk. It [...]

I think I just got another ‘life lesson’. I was out earlier today spraying Roundup on anything that didn’t look ‘grassy’ to me. As I was in the backyard obliterating noxious weeds, I spied the straggly bush in the corner of the fence. AHA!, I thought. I can spray that thing and get rid of [...]

We’re a pretty tech-savvy family. We like the latest gadgets and gizmos and haven’t really felt the need to shun modern technology. Don’t get me wrong, I love history – I just don’t want to live in it. And our children are right here with us. My 6 year old is a computer whiz. He’s [...]

Well, it was bound to happen sometime. I know this happens to other people, but so far it hadn’t happened to me and I could be rather smug about it. But that’s all over now. First of all, let’s just get it out in the open that I’m not a great housekeeper. I hate cleaning. [...]
