Sooooo ready for summer…

Our whole house--seriously, summer can't come soon enough!! My son is ready for school to be over & getting him up in the mornings is getting to be more of a chore. My daughter is eagerly waiting for the beach. I'm just ready for a break from the daily grind. We planted our flowers weeks … Continue reading Sooooo ready for summer…

Mother/Son Night…

So, Dex & I went to our first Mother/Son night tonight through his school. My goodness, it was crazy!! I seriously felt like we were at a rave for kids. There was laser robot dancers, a crazy strobe light dance floor with a dj...laser tag, a Mario Party truck, trucks & k9 dog attacks. All … Continue reading Mother/Son Night…

Letting our kids grow up…

My son started kindergarten today. I'm both happy for him and heartbroken, scared, etc. My husband & I met with his teacher, the school psychologist & principal yesterday to go over what the plan is for him and the evaluation for an IEP.

I still … Continue reading Let’s talk about money…

Just a few questions I ask myself daily…

How do other parents deal with their kid's temper tantrums? A lot of my son’s meltdowns happen just because he doesn’t get his way. He lectures my husband & I constantly about how we’re being bad parents because we don’t do what he says. We try not to let it get us down most days--we … Continue reading Just a few questions I ask myself daily…

This is where we start…

So, this is all new for me. I’m not someone who usually shares much about my life--unless you happen to be close family/friends. My Facebook profile consists of a few updates on my kids each year--today’s equivalent of the lengthy Christmas letters my mom used to get when I was a kid. Other than that, … Continue reading This is where we start…
