    “What Not to Wear”- The Husband Edition

    Being empty-nesters, there’s often a lot of free time on the weekends. Sometimes my husband and I get a little lazy about doing anything that involves more than walking the dog, reading the paper or changing the channel, but every so often one of us will feel inspired to want to do something a little more interesting than walking the aisles at Costco/Ralphs/Target. This past weekend it was my husband who decided to suggest something a little different. READ MORE

    I’m A Mom

    I’m a mom.

    I’ve been hit, bitten, kicked and slapped. I’ve been spit up on, peed on, pooped on and puked on. I’ve had tears of sadness, sickness and anger on my shirt, arms and cheeks. I’ve had snot wiped on my legs and my face. I’ve held tantrums, fevers, Roseola, stomach flus and common colds. I’ve been sassed, told no and pushed away. READ MORE
