Don’t believe the hype
Posted April 24th, 2012 at 8:06 am
UGH....it's a dreaded standardized testing morning. I'm singing very loudly, "Don't believe the hype" in my best Flava Flav voice. It's Day One of two days of testing for my boys. I hate that the school pushes all of that testing anxiety into my home! If left up to me, nothing would be different. My kids are on a schedule and get good sleep every school night. I make some semblance of a hot breakfast daily! So why all of the pressure pushed down to them to do so many extra things in prepa...

It's funny how life has a way of taking you down paths you'd never expect to travel. I never expected to go through a divorce after 14 years and 3 kids. But I did, and I made it through. As someone who at 38 had NEVER lived alone, payed bills or been responsible for running a household, I never expected to be able to that either.
Low and behold....I am finally growing up. Next month I will turn 39 and I am still experiencing many firsts. After our divorce, I was faced with the terrifying real...
Random conversations with a 9 year old kid

Its a quiet Monday evening, full of endless sibling rivalry jabs. Ironically, donned in one of my favorite maxi dresses bearing black and white stripes...I was fully primed to be a referee....or serve 25 to life. And with these kid it can easily go either way lol!
As my taco meat was simmering (don't hate on my Monday night complex cooking skills) I was having a sweet bonding moment with my oldest son. We are sitting at the kitchen table sharing a Coke and he asks, "So mommy, what inspired...

Dear readers, supporters, like minded crazy mommies, supporters, cheerleaders, dads and those who generally enjoy my random bloggy musings,
I never imgained when I launched this blog on March 1st that things would start falling into place so quickly for me.

I would have never taken this leap of faith with...
