Thoughts From My Teenage Daughter

Thoughts From My Teenage Daughter

“Boy, when you’re dead, they really fix you up. I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a god damn cemetery. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you’re dead? Nobody.” – The Catcher in The Rye Honestly, this quote makes a lot of sense to me. Mostly…

Ramblings of a Worn Out Mom

Ramblings of a Worn Out Mom

What am I thinking?  I am thinking that I have no idea what to write about this week.  I have been sitting here, in m living room, lap top open for an hour now, and I am at a loss. I could go on and on about the kids going back to school.  I don’t really want to write about the hottest backpack, clothes, uniforms, shoes, and must haves for this school year.  Those topics have been written about so…

Guilty!

Guilty!

Guilty. Guilty. Guilty. I am guilty! My lovely, crazy teen sent me this link a few years ago.  “11 Things I Never Do As A Mom,”  and I am guilty! Let’s pick this article apart as it pertains to me. Article: 1) Play with my kids Are you horrified? Flabbergasted? Well, sorry, but it’s the truth. When I had but a mere one and even two children, I played with kids aplenty. All morning, I’d drop whatever chores I had…

Prepping for a Cat. 5 Hurricane

Prepping for a Cat. 5 Hurricane

How does one prep for a category 5 hurricane with kids?  There hear about it all over the place.   We live in south FL and have been preparing for the storm for a week now. The kids were very scared at first when the weather forecasters said it is a category 5.  We talked about what that means, what destruction it can do.  We had the kids make lists and start packing what means the most to them as…

No Bake Ice Cream Cake

No Bake Ice Cream Cake

have made this twice with my girls.  They loved helping to make the ice cream cake and the loved eating it.  My local grocery store did not have the already crushed oreos and I just don’t have the time to sit here crush them myself.  We used the Reese’s peanut butter cup chips that you can purchase in the ice cream topping section at your local store. Here is the link to the website I got the recipe from. Ingredients 1/2cup…

Trying Out For The Team

Trying Out For The Team

You hear so much about kid’s soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, football, and volleyball teams.  Sports are great for kids.  Sports are jot only fun, good learning experiences, but great forms of exercise as well. How do coaches choose who makes the team and who doesn’t?  What reasons do they have for choosing one child over another. A lot of the time it is who you know, unfortunately.  Some coaches choose kids they know over someone who is more skilled.  The…

Kids, Cars & Pools

Kids, Cars & Pools

Another touchy subject.  I have to wonder… 17 Month Old Found in Pool   I saw this on my local news this evening.  The parents of this poor baby are able to walk around, go to the store, go to work, and continue living as best they can without their little one.   18 Month old Left in Car Parents get arrested and charged for accidentally leaving little kids in cars.  However, parents who neglect to watch their young children…

I saw a story on Facebook today.  Yes I know, don’t believe everything you read/see on the internet.  But I can really relate to this particular story, and I think many of you moms out there can too. You may have seen the story about the young mom, who happens to be the same age as me.  She wore a bikini for the first time since she had kids to the beach.  A couple of grown men came upon her…
