It’s hard to believe that it’s already December, isn’t it? Before we know it, we’ll be ringing in 2017! Ack! How is time going by so quickly? I don’t remember it doing that when I was younger. Ok now that I’m feeling old, let’s move on! Since everybody has eaten dinner, the dishes are done, […]...

My husband (who works in the field of technology) had attended before and had a little better idea of what to expect. While there was a lot to get out of it, I don’t really feel I was prepared as much as […]...

I love to write! As a blogger, I depend on my writing to help make a living for our family. Sometimes it’s just really hard to think of what to write or how to get my thoughts onto paper. We call that Writer’s Block (or in the blogging world – Blogger’s Block). When suffering from […]...

It’s hard to believe that 6 years ago, I started The Mommy-Files.  I was married at the time and had a family blog, but wanted a blog that was all my own.  A blog where I could talk about motherhood (both the struggles and joys), connect with friends and family, and share my experiences through […]...
