Love Letter to Child

Dear Child,There is something I want to share with you today. No, this is not a lecture it's more of a life lesson. You may not be receptive to it now but all I ask is that you store it in the back of your mind. And when the day comes, trust and believe the day will come, all I ask is that you remember this lesson. Life is a…

What I Found When My Son Moved Out!

Have you ever wondered what you may find in the room of your teenage son if you mustered up the nerve to go through his things? Too afraid the findings may tarnish the sweet images of your little boy? Are you daring enough, brave enough, can you handle the truth of what your discoveries may say? I wasn't sure if I could either. I think this is why it took…

Being a Military Parent

If you would have told me twenty years ago that the choices my children make as an adult will impact my way of life, I would have said, "No, it won't!"  See, before I had children, I thought all you had to do was provide undying love, nourishment, install values, redirect, correct and then let go as they grow up. After having children I realized there is so much more…

LOVE Without Using Words!

There comes a day in every mom’s life when she realizes no matter how old her children are they still need her. It may not be the kind of need you are accustomed to giving but it is a need, never-the-less. And if you are like me…we will take it. So, the other day, my oldest daughter was kind of hanging out in my work space. You know, the kind…

A Mother’s Rant

"You have how many children?" First of all, it is none of your damn business how many children I have. All five of my children are a gift from God. You do not know the prays, tears, and work that went we went through to have these blessings. I do not need your permission and no I do not need your monetary assistance. Our kids, our blessings, our family. Thanks!…

Back to the Basics

I woke up this morning with an urge to get out and have some fun with the kids. Chuck E Cheese? Children's Museum? Sky Zone? Western Bowl? These are a few of our favorite places to visit. However, I had an amazing idea to challenge myself. I wanted to know if I could plan an outing that would entertain a three, five and fourteen year old. Oh yea...and without spending…

Where is Spring?

Spring is just around the corner and I can't wait. Here in Indianapolis we have been teased a few times with warmer weather. However, for the past few days we have been reminded winter is still here. With temperatures lingering in the mid to upper 30's, it feels like we will never get to put our coats away. C4 and C5 got brand new bikes for their birthdays and cant…

Family Fun at Walmart

So, you hate shopping with toddlers? I know many parents think it is hard to shop with toddlers. Believe me this has been my fight for years. Do I wait until the husband comes home? Do I stop by the store at 7:30am after working a twelve hours shift and have to go through the self check? Ehhh, NO! Where is the "win" for me? What is a momma to…

No Touching

This rant is one of my favorite. I am not sure if it is because the hair is getting bigger or taking on a life of its own.... It really does not matter. It is not okay to put your hands in someones hair without asking. I repeat, it is not okay to touch my hair! I am not a pet! I know it is wild and probably really tempting,…
