"Make the waves go away, Mommy" said the little voice next to my ear. It was a surprising request, considering a minute before the little girl attached to this voice was having the time of her life, laughing and romping in the Atlantic Ocean. But, that was then and this... Continue reading

I am not good at conflict. There. I said it. I get all shaky and hot and blushy and flushed and embarrassed and then I get irritated that I feel that way so my tone gets all salty and angry and sarcastic, and words come spilling out of my head... Continue reading

Whew! It's been a while since I've dumped the pictures off my phone! We had a busy Spring Break week. I took the older kiddos Letterboxing one day. I had a lot of fun hanging out with them- watching them have fun, using their brains, working together, conquering fears. We... Continue reading

10. Ignore what people say about packaged and processed foods. Tell yourself "everything in moderation", then proceed to make those things the sole focus of your diet. 9. Eat your pain. When you feel sad, alone, depressed, angry, frustrated, lonely, irritated, eat "comfort food". Don't bother to explore your actual... Continue reading

I'm a yeller. There. I said it. I yell all the time. At my kids. At my husband. At random drivers on the road. Anyone really. I don't even have to be angry or in a bad mood. I just snap and yell when something doesn't go exactly the way... Continue reading

I love April. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of winter, but when April rolls around, I get a little happy. It probably has nothing to do with the fact that it's my birthday month. Nope not at all. I'm sure it has a lot... Continue reading

I have a heavy heart this week. Thinking serious thoughts about serious things. Saddened and confused by this world that we raise our children in. I often think that I would like to build a bubble around my children and raise them there, never letting the bad things touch them,... Continue reading

I stopped for coffee today. There is a little coffee shop downtown that makes a plain, nonfat latte taste thick and creamy, so I decided to splurge and go in on the way to preschool drop off. My early morning hadn't gone very well, starting with my husband jumping out... Continue reading

Monday ended up a snow day for us. We live in an area where even an inch of snow cripples everything, so we are quite used to several days off for what most areas would call a light dusting of snow. Since everyone was occupied by various electronics, I used... Continue reading

I'm jealous of your spring! It snowed here just yesterday. Sigh. Mimi is an adorable nickname! And thank so much for the pattern shops. I am not a seamstress, but my mom is. I'm thinking I can get Granna to make up some clothes for my girl;)

A lot of pictures this time- we had a packed end of week/weekend. Thursday started with all of the kids back at school after a two day hiatus for the three olders, so I took the dogs for a nice long walk with a friend of mine. It was freezing... Continue reading

The day started pretty good. Some sun. Blue, cloudy skies. Noticed the trees preparing to bud. We were happily on the way to school when, smack! I went into the car's rear end in front of me. Puts a huge damper on your day when that happens. Luckily, no one... Continue reading

I've recently started reading your lovely blog after finding a link to one of your embroidery kits on Pinterest. You have such a gorgeous baby and as a fellow Knitter with a daughter, you have inspired me to make more knitted objects for her. Thanks for sharing your beautiful life! :)

It's raining today. Again. I know in the long, hot, dry days of summer I will regret saying this, but I am kind of tired of precipitation. Everything is wet. Not just wet. Soaked through. My hair is permanently in a ponytail, because blow drying and straightening do no good.... Continue reading
