Mom Spotlights

Being a mom is hard – no matter what stage you’re in.  It bothers me when seasoned moms make light of new mom struggles. Just because you mastered it, and you’re looking at that period of life through your now-rose-colored classes doesn’t mean that it wasn’t hard when you were in the midst of it! […]

Parenting Teenagers is Hard.

I love my teenagers.  They are fun, and I love spending time hanging out with them.  When it comes to parenting teenagers, there’s a learning curve.  I’m still the parent.  And I still have the responsibility to protect my children and provide guidelines for them that help them make good choices.  Soon, though, they will be on their own […]

The Dreaded “D” Word – Dating

So, I pretty much do not have this parenting thing figured out.  Just this morning all three of my teen/tween daughters were upset with me before 8:00 a.m. so you can take any advice from me with a grain of salt. My daughters are at the age where they are noticing boys… and boys are […]

Monday Musings

So, I may have mentioned I have a full time job now.  While I do love my new job, it’s been a big adjustment.  Obviously, one of the things that shuffled to the back-burner was the blog.  It’s feeling a bit neglected even though I think of things all the time that I should share. […]

My Latest Stitch Fix

So, the first time I tried Stitch Fix, it wasn’t the greatest.  I did get a sweater that I liked (that has since disappeared – hmm), but other than that, the items either didn’t fit well or at all, or just weren’t to my liking.  This time, I took more time leaving some notes for […]
