One More Month of "Normal"

Last November, we were living in NC for about a month and a half as Richard worked on his helicopter license. I started attending a MOPS (Moms of Preschoolers) group while we were there. It was very encouraging for me during that time and I met a lot of great women. One very sweet youngContinue reading “One More Month of "Normal"”

What I Learned from Finding Nemo

What do you do with a two-year-old when it\’s storming outside? Why, you curl up with a bowl of popcorn and watch \”Finding Nemo\”, that\’s what! That\’s exactly what Elliott and I did today while the earth soaked up the much needed rain pouring from the skies.

From the Archives: Confessions of a Not-So-Super-Mom: Part Uno

I\’ll be posting Part Dos soon so wanted to re-post this one as a refresher before you hear more details of my awesomeness as a mom over the last year 🙂 I would say that I threw away all my parenting books, but the factContinue reading “From the Archives: Confessions of a Not-So-Super-Mom: Part Uno”

Thankful Thursday: Laughter

Yesterday was a pretty obnoxious day. My computer has been down for two days at work and that means I\’m stuck scanning literally dozens of folders….. uuuggghhhhh. Boring.
