When did that happen???

I am not sure when it happened. I guess it was over time. A slow and steady process. I must have missed the signs. I don’t know when it happened. I wish I had been told. A secret no one tells you. Oh when did I get old??? *** Sorry I was just feeling rhyme-y […]

The world outside.

There is a weird thing that happens when I am sick for a long period (or in this case my son is). I don’t venture outside. Not to say I don’t go to my mail box, I do. But I don’t leave the property on which my house sits. I don’t go to the store. […]

No sense, no pain.

Today Cam decided he knew better then mommy and after being told repeatedly not to stand on the living room chair he did any way and fell off hitting his head on the corner of the toy book. Of course the first thing he did was start to cry. I having had a long week […]

He’s thankful for what?

Tonight was parent teacher night at Cameron’s school. When I first arrived I was nervous. I wasn’t sure how things would go since Cam has been having a lot of problems with accidents. So I hoped for the best but was prepared for the worst. It turns out all the worry was for nothing. The […]

Why do they call it spring cleaning?

Today I got in to a weird cleaning mood which as those who know me can tell you, it doesn’t happen often. So I decided to tackle my kitchen pantry which is no small task. It is actually 4 very large cupboards plus two very large shelves. Well after about 5-6 hours of cleaning I […]

My son Nate. The rock.

I was just awoken about an hour ago by a screaming Cameron. He went to bed with a tummy ache and woke up throwing up at one in the morning. Poor guy was covered so I had to bathe Cam.  Then I stripped down the bed and even had to wipe down the wall beside […]

A Wii bit of fun.

As a child and still now as an adult my favorite game was and is Mario. So this evening Rob and I played Wii games with the boys. They were excited to play Mario for the first time and were suprisingly good at it. I love sharing the joys of my child hood with my […]
