Words are powerful

Throughout life everyone will face adversity.  WE each have a choice with how we handle it.  Words are powerful.  Negative words will eat you up inside if you choose to let them.  Or you can choose to leave them behind in the past.  Step over them like a break in the road.  They are not […]

Expectation and discipline

My oldest child always ceases to amaze me.  As long as I lay a plan ahead of time for him, he responds very well.  So for him, I always try to set the expectation.  I started him on ABC Mouse when he was two and he now is a wiz on the computer, or for […]

Rainy Day Aftermath

Growing up as a child, do you remember it raining and just playing in it?  Getting completely drenched…how about the rainy day aftermath?  You aren’t just drenched, you are muddier than muddy can be.  There is nothing like it but the cringe of a parent as they see their child covered.  The mind races how […]

One on One Time

Having three children, I lose sight of the fact that they still need individual attention or one on one time.  I always try to keep us together when doing things because I want them to appreciate their family and siblings.  But I also realize, they just plain need to have your full undivided attention too.  […]

15 month old never forgets

I laughed so hard.  My daughter, who is 15 months old and apparently never forgets, was tired and hungry.  All of us were playing in the basement, hanging out so to speak, building tracks, playing music, coloring, everyone was doing something different.  When all of a sudden, my 15 month old decided to crawl up […]

Pot of Gold

Today I took the kids to a park.  We ended up looking for a pot of gold, a rainbow, and a leprechaun.  I love it!  It didn’t start out that way.  I always bring my children to the park and have them run the bases on the baseball fields, or play basketball on the courts, […]

Sick Children

As a mother of 3 children, there is nothing worse than when they all get sick.  But of course, it never happens at the same time.  Whether it is minutes, hours, or days apart, it is a tough battle for any parent.  Most of the time, they don’t want to take their medicine and they […]

Hot Summer Days with Water

I absolutely love summer.  We even recently put a pool in.  Having three children and a pool, well that is a little scary to me.  I remember as a kid having a sprinkler and I loved it.  You can even get all these crazy new sprinklers that throw the water everywhere.  Kids love these!  So […]

Diaper Wars loved by infants played by kids

Kid’s love pulling things out of bags, buckets, toy chests, you name it.  So, why would I think diapers would be any different?  Not only are diaper boxes handy, apparently so are the bags diapers are stored in.  Or, anything else  you use to keep diapers organized in for that matter.  When my oldest first […]

The children are finally asleep, phew!  What a day! 

Evening after the chaos of the day.   The children are finally asleep, phew!  What a day!  I am relaxing with a piece of cheesecake and my favorite uplifting television programs, talent shows.  These people are so inspiring.  Its these people, who I see face their fears and overcome hardships, who make me strive to […]
