The Alzheimers Nightmare

In: Mommy Musings

I must have forgotten to take my anxiety medication today and not realized it. I rarely miss a dose like that, but when I do, I have really crazy dreams and night sweats. It’s happened before but never like this. Tonight I had the most realistic and strange nightmare. It started simply with me coming [...]

Winter Storm Work at Home Day

In: Mommy Musings

Today is the first of what I’m sure will be 2-3 “snow” days for the girls. At the moment, it’s raining…just raining! However, they’ve predicted snow and ice so we are all home from school. Since Luke is out of town, I’m on duty for the next few days – working at home. Working at [...]

Cultivating Our Many Talents

In: Mommy Musings

My children have so many talents that it’s hard to keep up. Hailey has swimming; Fifi has soccer; both are wonderful artists. Of course, some talents are forced upon us, like when Hailey had to make a turkey out of multiple materials. She really did an amazing job with it – actually planning and executing [...]

Celebrity Status

In: Mommy Musings

Hailey finally made it to Player of the Day on First in Math today. She played a lot yesterday when she was too tired to do much else. I called her a celebrity today, and she said, “what’s that?”. I guess I should be happy that she didn’t say, “I feel like a Kardashian.” One [...]

You Haven’t Lived…

In: Mommy Musings

…until you’ve spent the night sleeping on the floor in a room with 50 Girl Scouts. Now that is a treat that is reserved for only the bravest (or craziest) Mothers in the world. What you see above is one-eighth of a giant conference room at the Zoo where all of us slept together in [...]

Kitchen Dreams

In: Mommy Musings

Hailey is on a kitchen kick. She loves to cook. Loves it! We have been super supportive and let her watch MasterChef Junior every week. We love it. In fact, she had the super amazing privilege of visiting a restaurant and having a private lesson from the owner.

Back to Reality

In: Mommy Musings

Tomorrow is the first day of school for both of my little munchkins. So, it’s probably time that I also get back to reality with the blog. I unofficially took the summer off (as you may have noticed). When I finally get around to posting about the summer, you’ll understand why I couldn’t possibly fit [...]

Back to Normal

In: Mommy Musings

We are back from the Orlando trip this week, and it’s been a bit of a rough transition. Unlike me who was excited to be back in my own bed, the girls used the opportunity to develop another fear of the dar. Maybe I should say “fear of the dark” (in giant quotes and asterisks) [...]

Triumphant Return

In: Mommy Musings

I know I’ve been a slacker on the blog lately. And, frankly, I’m not going to make excuses or even catch you up on our ever-so-interesting lives because that is not the point of the day. The point of the day is to celebrate the birthday of my wonderful, beautiful, spirited child – Sophia! Today [...]
