One of the things that I love most about the book club I belong to is the huge diversity in books that I’ve been exposed to (my second favorite thing is the hilarious and wacky conversations that are largely off topic). Each month one of our members gets to select three books they’d like to read and then the group votes on the one that … Continue reading Book Review: Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman
This week’s Tuesday10 is all about things handwritten. How often do you write something by hand these days? It is amazing how little I find myself writing by hand compared to when I was a teenager passing letters with my friends constantly or even back in college writing poetry and studying for tests. I find myself wondering if my children will ever really need to … Continue reading Tuesday10: Handwriting in a Digital World.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already time for the first Nightstand post of 2013! I’ve been having a pretty good reading month since the New Year and have just finished reading my third book of the year. That’s sort of a record for me, so to all you ladies with your time for reading more than one book a week, shhhh, don’t ruin it … Continue reading Nightstand 2013: January 22nd
1+1= Most of my days look like this lately. Blurry, grainy snapshots that show a lack of sleep as I struggle to keep up with this little lady. She is all attitude, a hundred miles a minute, totally working her own agenda, always. My schedule is perfectly tailored to her needs, with the added requirement that we get home in time to get Big Brother … Continue reading Mother Math: Mommy & Me Monday: January 21, 2013
BB: “Mommy what are you eating?” Me: “Pasta, what are you eating?” BB (with full on eye roll): “Peanut butter and honey… How many times do I have to tell you???” My 3 year old just set me up. ps: yes, I know I am reusing an old picture and that if you scroll down just a few days – there it is again. I’m … Continue reading The set up.
I’m one of those people who go through bursts of serious productivity and then long, languid hours of sitting in my bathrobe watching ABC family or playing Facebook games. I have serious aspirations to be That Mom who crafts with her kiddos all the time, cooks healthy and varied homemade meals, is a domestic diva and wears high heels but that vision only comes through … Continue reading Kiwi Crate is making me look like Mom of the Year!
This week’s Tuesday10 theme is Professions I Wish I Had. Being a SAHM this is something I actually think about often. If I wasn’t doing this wonderful, amazing, mothering thing, what would I be doing with my life? Surely I’d have some traditional type job in which I am compensated for my time and energy with something other than sticky kisses and manic hugs. When I … Continue reading Tuesday10: I wish I was a…
Sometimes life gets busy – too busy to blog. I feel like most of yesterday was spent in a car, trying to find a parking spot. I also drank copious amounts of coffee, ate a couple of cookies, wrangled with seat belts, bought my daughter more dresses than I currently own myself, bought myself one pair of socks, watched the Golden Globes (so sue me, … Continue reading a day late and a dollar short: mommy & me monday: january 14th
“Now I’ll take a picture, mommy!” “Now you take a picture, mommy, like this – ca-clickkk!” “Now you take a picture of me taking a picture of you mommy, say cheese!” Continue reading one moment: ca-click!
