Perfection

Jack is the type of kid who doesn’t like to do something unless he absolutely 100% knows that he can do it perfectly. I made this realization when he learned to walk. There were no practice steps for him. Every once in a while he would take one step away from the couch, but immediately he would fall or go right back to the couch. I figured eventually he would start taking more steps and then work his way up ...more

Disney World: We’re Going to Disney!

We’ve been back from our trip to Disney World for 10 days and I’m just now getting around to working on some recaps.  What can I say? It’s been insane.  We were actually in Disney World for Xander’s birthday.  We returned home and two days later it was the boys’ birthday party, followed by running the Great Race and finally Jack’s birthday two days later.  Not to mention the whole returning to work at month-end thing.  So now that things ...more

Book Review: Matched

  I am relatively new to reading Young Adult books (well, I read them as a young adult, but that was YEARS ago).  Since I’m new to YA books, I’m still trying to find authors that I like so when I got the chance to read and review Matched by Allie Condie, I jumped at the opportunity ....more

Moving On Up

Every where I look I see the signs of back to school. You can’t turn the tv on without seeing commercials for back to school sales. Every store that I walk into has some type of back to school promotion going on. Although we still have two years until Jack starts kindergarten (Woohoo for the fall birthday! Momma gets an extra year before she has a breakdown about her baby starting school), his preschool program has a formal start to ...more

Recipe: Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp and Feta

It’s a well documented fact that I am a Pinterest addict.  If love pinning new crafts, foods, or clothing ideas.  While I love finding new things, every once in a while, I’ll stumble upon a recipe for a dish that I’ve made before but that I’ve totally forgotten about.  This is one of those recipes ....more

Asthma Strikes Again

It was just over a year ago that Jack had his first wheezing episode.  We were quickly introduced to the world of nebulizers and breathing treatments.  Over the next eight months, Jack would often wind up wheezing when he would get a cold with a bad cough.  I lost track of how often it happen, but it’s fair to say that it was at least 4 times in that 8 months.  Then in March, a bad cough hit him hard ...more
