We took some video footage of Sam last night in his “nursing” mode. I had just finished nursing him and he was “done.” George was in the front room with him and called out for me and said “I had to come see this.” I came out and grabbed my camera. Here is what he [...

In our family, my husband LOVES spicy foods, but I have a hard time eating them, as do my kids. Often times, he’ll add Tabasco or Tapatio. On Rachael Ray, she gave a great tip I’d never heard of. You buy some spicy salsa. You have spicy salsa for the person who likes it spicy. […]...

Boys, boys, boys. You won’t see any baby dolls, barbie dolls, or my little ponies laying around my house. Just Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, cars, and superheroes! I grew up as the oldest of 4 girls and let me tell you, there was lots of emotions going every which way! Boys are different! They ...

I was reading through Dr. Laura’s blog recently and came upon this article called “Children ‘Forgotten’ in Overheated Cars.” I really had a hard time understanding how this could happen. How could someone “forget” their child in the car and why would a parent...

I love to enter contests and rarely win them. However, I thought it might be fun to hold a contest and give something away to somebody else. If it works out well, I might continue to do it in the future. I am giving away a copy of the book, “Superfudge,” by Judy Blume. It […]...

I’ve decided that since things can get very frustrating with little children, I am going to focus on the positive aspects. I’ve decided to think of the positive things of parenting, motherhood, and children – the ABC’s. The first letter is “A.” I love that my 4 yea...

For anyone out there reading my blog, I have a question for you. My 4 year old whom I dearly love has been going through a phase recently. He talks back to me. If I tell him to do something, he says “no.” Now keep in mind, he does not always do this, but does […]...

For those who aren’t aware, the city of Seattle is trying to impose a 20-cents-per-plastic-bag tax and are now selling reusable bags at many stores. The bags cost anywhere from $1.00 to $4.00 in price – you can buy “trendy” ones on the internet and spend a lot more. I bought 2...

Both Brian and Dallen took a binkie or pacifier when they were babies. Brian took it for 6 months and was done with it. Dallen took it for 3 months and was done it. Sam wants NOTHING to do with it. He actually gets mad if I even offer it to him. George was able […]...

I love the Fall, but along with it comes the cold weather. I don’t mind the rain or overcast skies so much, but the cold is not great. Dress in layers is my number one recommendation when it comes to the cold. Yesterday, September 22nd marked the first day of Fall. Things are going to […...

Brian had his first soccer game on Saturday. Before we left, George pumped up Brian’s soccer ball. I was in the front room getting the kids ready. Brian had all of his gear in a workout bag George gave him to use. All of a sudden, we heard a loud pop! What the heck was […]...

There are a few blogs I check on a regular basis. My favorite is “Tales of an Ordinary Housewife.” If you want to click on it, you’ll have to find it in my blog list because I don’t know how to do a link to it in my post. She is a friend we met […]...

Every house has what I call a “crazy maker.” This is someone who just likes to “stir the pot” a little bit. In our house, that would be Daddy (aka George). On Saturday, I told him it might be a good idea to start teaching Brian how to “sight read.” Sight reading, f...

The other day I went to Costco with a friend (thank you Jill) and bought a big package of the frozen meatballs. We had Spaghetti and the meatballs the other night for dinner. This wasn’t made from scratch, but was super easy and yummy! I heated the meatballs in the microwave in my Pampered Chef...

I see some similarities in the tv shows “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Friends.” 1 – You have the couples that everyone wants so badly to get together – meet Derek and Meredith and Ross and Rachel. 2 – You have the other couples – meet Erica and Callie and...

George and I just watched “Made of Honor” tonight, starring Patrick Dempsey, Michelle Monaghan, and Kevin McKidd. I thought it was a really cute movie and really enjoyed the ending. Patrick Dempsey is easy to watch in most anything (aka Grey’s Anatomy – which by the way has it...
