Smiling into September

Sept 2013 2

Do you ever have one of those days, weeks, months where if you didn't have photos of it you almost wouldn't believe you actually got to experience it first hand?  That's how I felt about these past five days...they were that good!  Greg took Friday-Tuesday off to get in some family time and to celebrate our 8 year wedding Anniversary.  This time together was the best gift he could have ever given ...

DIY Behavior Chart {to help keep Mommy in check too}

Behavior Chart

While looking through Pinterest last night I came across this behavior chart.  It really stood out to me as something that I thought could work well with Nathan.  Lately I have been trying to come up with a solution for his constant request for things....Mommy, after school can we go to the mall and get a Lego Police Station?  Mommy, after we go to your store we can go to my store and I'll get ice ...

Nana flew ... [ Read More ]

Where’s my Spring Break?

Can we please get a moment of silence in honor of....a moment of silence.  A rare, fleeting, millisecond of the day that you can finally hear yourself think for the first time.  When you can sit down, close your eyes and take your first deep breath and let your brain catch up with your body and your body catch up with your brain. I don't know if it's the time change, teething, nap schedule ... [ Read More ]
