Things I Wish I Was Better At

I think everyone has something that they wish they were better or good at. The other day I was doing a Halloween diy and I was getting a little annoyed […]

Rainy Day Entertainment For Kids

This last week was a bit dreary. I think it rained for nearly 2 days, seemingly nonstop. I don’t mind the rain, though, it can make me feel lazy.  Pickle […]

Surviving me

I can feel the darkness approaching again. Thoughts are trying to consume me. I know when a spell is coming because I get angry, lazy, and quiet.  If you haven’t […]

What Am I Watching?

It is 11pm and everyone is asleep. I could try to sleep too, but sleep doesn’t come so easily for me. Not only that, but did you read what I […]

Attitude Adjustment Needed 

People always talk about the terrible two’s. In my old blog, which no longer exists thanks to that website, I talked about parenting a “three-nager”. Yes, it is exactly what […]

I just want to diy

I have always been a hands on type of person. I guess that is why I like arts and crafting so much. Creating makes me happy. I wish I had […]

Today I Am Cranky 

Sometimes I think my blog is like the content of a vlog, without all the noise.  Last night I went to bed “early”. Early, for me, is anytime before midnight. […]

My child, the liar

If you know me, you would know that my biggest pet peeve is lying. I don’t see a point in lying.  I have known that one of the values I […]

Parenting struggles 

As a parent, one of our main obligations is protecting our children. It is said that the urge to protect our offspring is instinctive. We go through great lengths to […]

Invest In Yourself Everyday

As a mom, it is easy to put yourself last on your list of priorities. The other day I posted The Time Is Now about putting myself back in the forefront.  Normally, […]

The Fitting Room

Please Help Support A Child In Need!

I do know this family personally. I cannot fathom how they are feeling and what they are going through. No child deserves to go through this. Please donate if you […]

Preschool Update

We have almost made it through the first month of preschool for Pickle. A couple of months ago I expressed my Preschool nervousness about him starting school. I wasn’t sure how well […]
