Back to School Mommy Dance

Well, well, well friends, it’s finally arrived, that day that so many of us have been waiting for since the second day the kids were off for the summer. It’s the night before the first day back at school!! Mothers everywhere can be seen scurrying around finishing up laundry (making sure the one and only […]

Jalapeno Recipe – Healthy and oh so good!

Jalapeno Recipe - Healthy and oh so good!

Today hubby and I enjoyed a slow, quiet afternoon as the girls played outside with friends. We decided upon an appetizer style dinner, which is a frequent event at our home. We LOVE appetizers, and frankly I am not the best cook…..GASP! Yup, it’s true and I admit it openly. Since the accident I cannot deal […]

My womb ached

My womb ached

This past Saturday we had the pleasure of taking my friend Krista’s wonderful children for a sleepover. Zack is 4 and his sister Charlotte is 8 months old. Krista has gone above and beyond for us since my accident in Feb/10. At the time of the accident Hubby worked evenings and Krista was here at our home […]

What we do as Mothers

What we do as Mothers

Have I mentioned how much frogs gross me out? Why do children love them so much? Once upon a time, my lovely family went for a stroll to a seemingly beautiful pond. There was a fountain, sunshine and pretty lily pads. I sat far away, upon a pretty white bench and watched my two daughters with […]

Saying goodbye to my enemy

Saying goodbye to my enemy

“Julie, you are your own worst enemy!” If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard that in my life…..OK I wouldn’t be rich but I would certainly have a healthier bank account balance. This morning I was reading a post over at Being Sober where the author spoke about feeling like she was slacking. […]

Family Secret - EXPOSED

Today I’m coming out of the closet…..I have a sock basket. There I said it, it’s out there finally! When Hubby and I were together before kids there would come a time when we would notice a sock going missing. Because there was just the two of us, it was a very quick discovery. In […]

Fathers Day

Fathers Day

This past Sunday was Fathers day and I’ve been reflecting on the journey my hubby has been on becoming the father he is today. Today he is wonderfully patient, kind and loving with the girls. He has a quirky sense of humor and easily understands the kids sense of fun and adventure. It began with […]

Road Trip with the Kids?

Road Trip with the Kids?

When the words “road trip” are said to parents of children under ten there is a segment of the population who cringe. Visions of irritable children, squeals of “are we there yet?”, “I have to pee” dance in our heads and immediately we’re glad we aren’t stuck in that vehicle. And yet at some point […]
