How Many?

How many days do I have left until school starts for my soon to be second grader? 22. Why am I counting down the days? Well boredom is running rampant in this house. Boredom = Sibling Fights. And my three kids are antagonists. They cannot be the same, think the same or do the same […]

When Little Boys Say Big Boy Words

When Little Boys Say Big Boy Words

Dear Mini Miner Dayton – The Soon To Be Five Year Old, I know us girls are very overwhelming. I can feel your frustration level when the girls start dressing up, playing make-up and convincing you to play “Marry The Princess” with them.

Trip One

A friend of mine, on her blog, made a list of memories. It was really neat to read and I myself am going to do one. Of course, my memory is fading faster the older my children get. I think there is a name for that. Anyway– because I do actually have a ton of […]

Make It Stop!

We went to the river this afternoon with no crankiness, no nothing. I got to see Tristan dive and it was awesome. Brodie practiced her diving skills and Dayton and I went looking for buried treasure. We didn’t find any. Damn. But Dayton and Tristan did take off their swim suits (with the built in […]


Last night, Dayton stayed away. He spent his first full night with his Uncle. No phone calls for me to come get him. No tears when I left him. Nothing. Nada. When I picked him up this afternoon all I got was a, ‘Mom, I’m not going back home. I love you, but I don’t […]
