Christmas Doesn’t Have to be Perfect, right?

The tree is up. No mice fell out of it – thank goodness! The box was slightly open so there was a possibility of a mouse hiding in the branches. The Elf on the Shelf has been found. I forgot her name for a few minutes. It’s Belle. Well, that’s what it said on Instagram.Continue reading “Christmas Doesn’t Have to be Perfect, right?”

School has Come Back to Life

It’s back-to-school time: do you love the start of school or dread it? I thought that I would be so happy to see my kids go off to school.

When Your Daughter becomes a Fire Breathing Dragon

This is my daughter. She used to be a sweet, loving little girl. Apparently that has changed. I get it. People change. Life goes on. The little girl we once knew is no more. She used to make cute drawings for me with bunnies and hearts for Christmas. I still have them in a frame.Continue reading “When Your Daughter becomes a Fire Breathing Dragon”

So lunch happened without any tears. I forgot to bring bowls so I ate my ravioli out of this pretty martini glass. Keepin’Continue reading “Moving Sessions: #thestruggleisreal”

Becoming Anne Bancroft. #MidLife Memories: Daily Post

Which good memories are better — the recent and vivid ones, or those that time has covered in a sweet haze? I’m still trying to convince myself that I’m 40. Am I really in mid-life? Honestly, I will take any memory that I can get. I love them all! I remember being four years old. It might haveContinue reading “Becoming Anne Bancroft. #MidLife Memories: Daily Post”

Psssst. . . . I have about Ten Minutes of Quiet Time Left . . . .

Summer vacay is here. For the kids. They are having a wonderful time. This week, they’ve only whined about two times apiece so that’s 6 instances of whining. I will take it. I really only have about ten minutes left before they wake up and take over the universe aka the Internet. It’s ok becauseContinue reading “Psssst. . . .

if we were having coffee: roller skating, shopping & ice cream with the birthday princess

If we were having coffee, I would be so happy to see you and have an adult conversation. It doesn’t mean that I haven’t had a really awesome day with the birthday princess aka Little Sister #2. I just haven’t really talked to a grown-up beyond introductions (“Hi. I’m her mom. It’s her birthday. IsContinue reading “if we were having coffee: roller skating, shopping & ice cream with the birthday princess”
