The Perfect Holiday Cookie

The Perfect Holiday Cookie

My daughters and I were invited to a holiday cookie exchange. I had read endless blogs and articles about holiday cookie exchanges, and they seemed, well, complicated.
Mom Humor: Cleaning & Grinning

Mom Humor: Cleaning & Grinning

My announcement that we were cleaning out the closets and toy shelves was not met with the enthusiasm one might imagine. Okay, fine. I’m not sure which one of us might imagine that cleaning closets and toy shelves could be done enthusiastically, but I was hoping that someone in my house might be enthusiastic about the task.
Mom Humor: The Great Pumpkin Scheme

Mom Humor: The Great Pumpkin Scheme

Last October (yes, a year ago), I bought several pumpkins at the local discount store. I do not buy the biggest or most expensive for this reason alone: The Daughters will each design a pumpkin, begin carving, get grossed out and then Brian and I will finish the job just in time for the neighborhood kids to steal it and smash it in the street. Call me an Orange Grinch, but I won’t spend big bucks on pumpkins.
What's This 'Alone Time' I Hear So Much About?

What's This 'Alone Time' I Hear So Much About?

My sweet husband, knowing I’d had a rough week, promised that he’d quietly get our daughters out of the house on Saturday and let me sleep in. Y’all? Sleeping in is my nirvana. He didn’t have to tell me twice of his plans before I popped a melatonin, put on a sleep mask and drifted off to dream.
Making the Most of the Pick Up Lane

Making the Most of the Pick Up Lane

I find the pick up lane to be quite long. And tedious. And hot. And, most of all, boring.
Birthday Party Priorities

Birthday Party Priorities

I love birthdays but maybe, perhaps more than that, I love birthday parties. Before the second blue line was fully across the pregnancy test, I was planning my future party animal’s first birthday party.
The Summer that Boredom Busted Me

The Summer that Boredom Busted Me

Last summer, I made the Boredom Boxes. You know, like the ones that made their rounds on Pinterest. I repinned them and actually made them. That makes about four pinned ideas that I have actually followed through with. Four, y’all! That’s a personal best for me.
Becoming a Health Nut: Emphasis on Nut

Becoming a Health Nut: Emphasis on Nut

Approximately twelve weeks ago, I made a resolution that I would be healthier in the New Year. I read that people who made small goals and worked to achieve those small goals were more successful at keeping their resolutions.
Sign Me Up: Imagining Momma Camp

Sign Me Up: Imagining Momma Camp

At Momma Camp, there would be no washing machines and there certainly would be no dryers. When we had dirty clothes, we would wad them up into balls and shove them in the corners of our suitcases. And, if we wanted to wear the same black yoga pants and gray Bon Jovi T-shirt every single day of camp, no one would judge us. In fact, we’d probably be complimented on our great fashion sense every morning when we strolled out of our cabins looking well-rested and refreshed.
Flying the nest: surviving spring break

Flying the nest: surviving spring break

If ya’ll will excuse me this month, I’m feeling very verklempt. My older daughter, my first born, my baby girl, is packing almost everything she owns in preparation for her week away (from me). This will be the first time that the child who made me a mother will be away from me for an extended period of time. Those two nights that her Nana kept her while my husband and I celebrated our anniversary at a bed and breakfast just two hours away don’t count.
