Our Parenting Curve Ball – Part II

Our Parenting Curve Ball – Part I was about the waiting game before taking our girl for an MRI. I was actually a wreck. No matter how much you focus or keep positive thoughts, there’s a reality check that goes through your mind when you are faced with a test like an MRI. At least…

Our Parenting Curve Ball – Part I

Sometimes life throws a curve ball and you have to figure out whether to swing or drop the bat to run away. We all  handle things differently, don’t we? Since my sister passed away almost 5 years ago, life curve balls are a bit harder for me to swing at. That was a pretty huge life…

5 Tips for the Traveling Mom

Do you remember Leave It To Beaver? Those  episodes of a boy who went off to school while his mom stayed home making dinner and after school snacks for her boys. Dad went to a 9 to 5 job and the issue presented during the 1/2 hour show is wrapped up with a pretty bow by the end….

How important is the routine for your kids?

It’s An “S” Day

The Meltdown

The day started out pretty normal. It was a Sunday and my hubby made us breakfast. He likes to make sausage and eggs for all of us on the weekend. We love it, too. As we eased into the afternoon, nap time was the same as usual with no surprises. Later in the day, my…
