As moms across the world finish up celebrating their ONE sacred day of the year, I was inspired to blog about the 'dark' times that not only flex our true mommy muscles, but often outweigh the fond memories! In all honesty, it is these memories that actually provide laughter for years to come - both … Continue reading Madder Than A Wet Hen!
Get ‘Er Done!
The 'goal' of parenthood is to keep a steady pattern of strong vitals. The 'plan' has changed numerous times, over the course of history. Some super moms just keep it together and continually one-up themselves, only to be unfollowed or unfriended in our vast social networks. Or at least fuel the fodder in the social … Continue reading Get ‘Er Done!
God Doesn’t Break The Molds..
Those of us with more than one child have no doubt that the heavens spoke loudly in the form of our last child. In fact, it's probably God's way of population control. I mean....how many times have we admitted that if "he was our first, he would have been our last." Not that easy could … Continue reading God Doesn’t Break The Molds..
Summer Is Just Another Fresh Hell!
OK...so I haven't even looked at my blog in months....even forgot the web address. I decided to delve back in and saw several posts that apparently, I was too lazy to post. Here is one! Some may mark the beginning of Summer with the completion of testing or school or even the hotter temperatures and … Continue reading Summer Is Just Another Fresh Hell!
Worn Slap Out!
Well, our clan has just completed our annual vacation and so we are absolutely worn slap out. All of us....however, the energy exerted on these annual vacations is not equally divvied up and therefore, the whining shouldn't be either. Since my bunch doesn't care what I have to say, I am putting it out there … Continue reading Worn Slap Out!
Thoughts from a Deranged Homeschooling Mom!
Some say that February is the hardest teaching month of the year. As a homeschooling mom, I tend to agree. All the built-in breaks of the holidays are over, with no end in sight. As a homeschooling mom, we hope to recoop lost time from the holidays and this battles with the kids being overwhelmed … Continue reading Thoughts from a Deranged Homeschooling Mom!
Thoughts of this Deranged Mom at Christmas!
My thoughts for the Christmas season: To celebrate my hubby's payday, we bought the good trash bags and a box of wine. I wish I had the money to buy wrapping paper to wrap them. Good gingerbread houses are one of the things required by Facebook to remain in the good parenting network. Good gingerbread … Continue reading Thoughts of this Deranged Mom at Christmas!
I Am As Nervous As A Long Tail Cat In A Room Full Of Rocking Chairs.
So a few months ago my Facebook news feed was overrun with pictures and celebrations of little angels receiving numerous school awards. This week, it's overrun with first day of school pictures. Facebook has led us to a point that we broadcast every praise bestowed upon us or our little petite ya-yas. We are a homeschooling … Continue reading I Am As Nervous As A Long Tail Cat In A Room Full Of Rocking Chairs.
That Dog Won’t Hunt
It's that time of year when us homeschooling moms sit down with our computers, laptops, paper, pencils, laminators, sticky notes, highlighters, etc and plan a new year. We do research, we poll our friends, we beg guidance from strangers, and we contemplate our sanity for pursuing yet another year. We design lesson plans, calendars and … Continue reading That Dog Won’t Hunt
Parenting in Review
Today, I have been working on my next eBook, Mountain Notes to Parenting, and so I have been reviewing some of my prior posts on parenting. I came across this post and laughed all over again - especially, since it's that time of year again for our family vacation! Lord Willing And The Creek Don't … Continue reading Parenting in Review
