Tonight I noticed my feet are dirty. Little Buddy has dirty feet too. It's summertime! I can barely open the front door to get the mail before LB tries to slip past me and out to FREEDOM. That's my nature boy for you. We pass the time away by running through sprinklers and playing in a $10 plastic kiddie pool ...

Turning the big ONE!

On 07 July 2011 , tags: mothering 1 Comments

Turns out that a one year old birthday doesn't have to be that big of a deal. Well, not for us anyway. You see, I had it all planned in my head. Then I replanned, and planned again. We were going to have a big birthday bash with all of his closest friends. Then we weren't. Then we were. ...

I just found out a couple of months ago that I can't do it all. Yes, I am admitting it....I am human. I can do a lot of things. In fact, I am doing a pretty darn good job and being a part-time working mother and wife if you ask me. But, my mom likes to say "just because ...

His Biggest Cheerleader

On 25 May 2011 , tags: mothering 0 Comments

"Yay, Little Buddy!" "Such a good boy you are!" "Way to go!" "Just a few more seconds!" "Doing such a fantastic job!" These are just a few of the phrases that I can be heard saying (in my high pitched voice) when it comes to brushing Little Buddy's teeth. You see, I dropped the ball....hard. When it comes to the oral health for my ...

Living the Mommy Life

On 22 May 2011 0 Comments

The irony about writing a blog about mothering is that sometimes I am TOO busy actually mothering to write about it! So what have we been up to? : Organizing toys. Our elderly neighbor sadly passed away a couple of months ago and her family had a garage sale last week. We bought a wonderful toy bin (must have been ...
