Fall Pinterest Fail

Damn you, Pinterest. Damn you. You’ve sucked me in and helped to create some craftiness in my life. Unfortunately, I have had many Pinterest fails. My latest one goes something like this: I re-pinned a Melted Crayon Pumpkins onto my Kids Projects board.

Some wonderful, beautiful, probably rich (so I have no way of knowing this, but in my mind, she is) mom of 4 did this activity with her children and it came out perfect. I couldn’t wait to try ours! Seems simple enough. You put a bunch of broken crayons on top of pumpkins and sit them in the sun. Fool proof, but apparently not Ashlen proof. READ MORE

    Confessions of A Late Bloomer

    I am a late bloomer.

    I always have been. Each year on my birthday I receive a phone call from my mother to remind me of how long it took to get me out of her uterus. “Oh, I remember where I was [fill in the birthday blank] years ago!” she clucks. “Enduring 10 hours of labor trying to give birth to you! God, I thought you’d never come out.” I thank her for the call and suggest she send an ecard next year. READ MORE

    Facing The Tough Questions

    In my fifteen years of being a mom, I’ve had my share of tough questions.

    The ones that induce the reddest blushes have to do with sex.

    What is sex? Do you and daddy have sex? When do you ever find the time to have sex? These are the tip of the iceberg in a long line of questions from my three kids that I’ve fielded over the years. Usually while we are all at the dinner table and my mouth is full of tea or pasta. READ MORE
