The Glass Is Half-Full Of Delicious Snow Cones

The last three or four weeks have been tough — between the days and days of kidney stone pain and the surgery not being successful then my Nana passed away. Although I’ve had a hard time and cried a lot since Nana died, I’ve never felt like my life was bad or somebody was out to get me or anything like that. I even said I was thankful the kidney stones came the day after my daughter’s birthday party and grateful I was recovered enough from my surgery to spend Nana’s last good day with her before she passed ....more

My Sister’s Wedding: Happy One Year Anniversary!

Between my sister’s birthday and her one year wedding anniversary is the perfect time to FINALLY post about her amazing Southern wedding. (Seriously, she’s been featured in like eight magazines.) My first worry was my kids being able to stay up late enough for auntie’s big day (weekend!) especially since we were...more

Spring Break For Kindergartners Is No Joke

I really didn’t think I’d take a week off of writing. Then again, I didn’t realize I’d agreed to the 5-year-old version of Cancun. For N’s Spring Break, we painted pottery, shopped, ice skated, went to the children’s museum, did arts & crafts, took 20 books out of the library, saw Cinderella (the movie not the princess), shopped again, rode a train, bowled, won 7 rubber duckies at the arcade, saw every other family member in a 200 miles radius — all while getting in our regular reading, writing, drawing, and playing pretend ....more

Are You Mom Enough To Distinguish Your Baby’s Cries?

One of the worst question I have been asked as a new mom — and even as a seasoned mom — is: Can you distinguish your baby’s cries? What? Can I tell if my screaming, squirming baby wants to eat or sleep by the pitch and tone of noises he...more
