My teeth felt fine BEFORE going to the dentist!


Well hey there everyone!  I am slowwwwwwly lifting my head up and returning to the land of the living after a few weeks in dental hell. Let me catch you up…so last month I went to a new dentist because my previous dentist of 20 years recently retired. New dentist came highly recommended and had […]

Potty Training Tips – What Worked For Us


Potty training my daughter was such an intimidating task and one I had been dreading and avoiding. But I am happy to report that things are going very well! She’s still wearing a diaper at night but I am breathing a huge sigh of relief that we seem to have turned a corner on potty […]

Make It Happen


I’m a big believer of the “Make It Happen” mentality.  If you want something bad enough, you go for it. It’s completely on you to make time for it, make a plan and MAKE IT HAPPEN.  I really dislike listening to people complain about wanting something but never actually taking the effort to find a […]

We Started Potty Training and It Totally Sucks


I know everyone says this, but I really cannot believe how quickly my daughter is growing, changing and developing. She turns 3 next month and has been showing signs she’s ready to start potty training for a while now. That being said, I’ve been procrastinating. She’s been showing all the signs of being ready to […]

Old Friends Are Good for the Soul


Motherhood can be draining. There are days when it feels like the work doesn’t end, when everything has gone wrong, and you are just trying to make it until bedtime. The phrase “If Mama Ain’t Happy Ain’t Nobody Happy” is funny because it’s true. Everyone generally looks to mom to keep the family organized and functioning […]

OMG My Hard Drive Crashed!


It has been quite the interesting week for me…my work computer crashed!!!  Last Friday I woke up to find my laptop humming and a blue screen of death. This little blue screen popped up stating something had happened to my hard drive, and then it went black and appeared to come up in DOS mode saying […]

Grocery Delivery: I May Never Take My Child to the Grocery Store Again

When my daughter was a baby, I managed just fine taking her along with me to the grocery store. As she has gotten older, taking her with me to the grocery store is okay, but it’s not very time efficient and the constant begging for me to buy her something gets on my last nerve. Last […]
