Parenting – A Double Edged Sword

All three of my kids are now in school. Giving me freedom throughout the day to lounge or accomplish something. I don’t miss them. I don’t count down the minutes until they are home. It’s my time and I am going to bask in the silence. I am going to enjoy the fact that I […]

What Is The Dating Age

What Is The Dating Age

When I was younger the rules were simple, I couldn’t date until I was 16. Being a kid I knew how to skirt the rules, find loop holes and generally disobey my parents. That is our job as children right?! To give our parents gray hair prematurely. When I had my kids I figured the […]

Pulling An All Nighter

A couple weekends ago I promised the kids ice cream. I then promised them after ice cream we would find something on Netflix and watch it together.

The Blame Game

When I was a little kid there was a couple things I remember my Mom teaching me.  The first thing, right from wrong. When I thought it was right to color on my wall with red “whipstick” (lipstick in my brothers language as the older brother), my Mom made me scrub it off. When I […]

Keep A Positive Attitude

For the past three mornings this week when I drop Brodie off at school, her schoolmates are holding signs in the school driveway with sayings. Things like, responsibility – be to school on time. Responsibility – eat a good breakfast. Responsibility – do your homework. I think today at least was responsibility day. But yesterday […]

It Has Begun

A couple weeks ago Tristan finally made the leap to stay the night at a friends house. She has stayed the night at her Uncles, Grandparents BUT never a friend. Never without a family member be it a cousin etc that she was used to. I dropped her off and lingered awhile. Waiting for her […]

Quit Yer Bitchin’

I’m in an unusually pissy mood tonight and somethings are just rubbing me the wrong way, such is life right? Well here is the deal, the very basic way for me to put it? Quit your bitching and find a solution. Seems simple enough eh? Wrong again. It’s much easier to offer that negative commentary […]
