Happy Mother's Day!


Happy Mother’s Day! Today is Mother’s Day – that special day set aside as a national holiday in the US by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. And I’m so glad he did! Between you and me….I love the pampering. Isn’t it amazing how after having children just being able to sleep in until 7 o’clock can feel luxurious? Our oldest daughter just ordered that I “do no work today!” Trust me there will be not rebuttals from this chair. While we all may be at different parenting stages as a mom, you are special just because you exist. After all,…

Tom Hanks' Toddlers and Tiaras


So…here is the funniest You Tube clip I have seen lately. It’s a spoof on the show I watch from time to time “Toddlers and Tiaras.” I can hardly bear to see my 6 year old wearing lipstick so I don’t think I will be a pageant mom anytime soon but, with that said, I am sure it is hard work! Looks like Tom Hanks plays the part well. Enjoy! Tom Hanks Toddlers and Tiaras

A new perspective on resolutions


I read an article this morning about making a “shipping list” so you can look back on all the things you have finished up and “shipped” out over the past year rather than just planning ahead for the things you hope to accomplish.

They will be spayed and neutered and up for adoption locally in Nashville, TN at PetSmart in a few weeks. For now they are still nursing (but also eating lots of food). It’s a joy to come home from work and have them all run to you for playtime. My daughter loves them but knows it’s just that we’re “babysitting” them until they find a home.

New Journals Here!


Wow! The New Handmade Mommy Journals are here!…. thanks to Patricia Terry’s hard work at Eskimo Cards despite the fact that her little one was sick–so she recruited more family to help. That’s multitasking team work if you ask me. They will be available on the site very soon…until then just be thinking of Mother’s Day….baby showers or one just for yourself. I have one and I love it. “List books” coming soon. The Journals come with 2 laminated bookmarks…one to keep and one to share! Also available in blue and brown.
