Dog Needs vs. Kid Needs

Dog Needs vs. Kid Needs

4 Basic needs of a dog: 1. Feed me 2. Let me out to “whiz or poo” (the dog trainers vocabulary I’m learning) 3. Take me for a walk 4. Show me some love (pet me, rub my tummy, play with me)   4 Basic needs of a kid: 1.  Feed me, but not that vegetarian lasagna you made the ... Read More »

Barren to Bonkers: The Dog Years

Barren to Bonkers: The Dog Years

Introducing the newest memeber of the Rasmussen family: We brought home a new puppy last Friday. He is a 12 week old Labradoodle! I have found there are two camps of people, those who say, “Oh my gosh what are you thinking!” and those who say, “Ohhhh, that is so great, a new puppy!” Yeah, I get it. I know ... Read More »

Welcome to Seattle (without the ocean views)

Welcome to Seattle (without the ocean views)

What the heck is up with all this rain?  We waited forever for winter to end (just put the winter coats in storage last weekend) but now we are swamped with torential rains day after day (good news, it is supposed to rain tomorrow too, followed by showers on Wednesday and storms on Thursday).  There have been so many cancled ...

Go Unicorns…Beat the Popsicles!

Go Unicorns…Beat the Popsicles!

Welcome to the world of Girl’s Kindergarten Soccer.  Our team name, after much debate and a simple vote, is the Unicorns (I know fierce).  But the team we played tonight were the Popsicles so maybe it’s not about making the other team afraid of their opponent.  Since we don’t keep score and we don’t want to hurt anyones feelings I’m not sure ...

“Worm Poop Grows Stuff.”

“Worm Poop Grows Stuff.”

To the gracious funders of the OLC (Outdoor Learning Center), just want to let you know that my six-year-old came home and informed me that “worm poop grows stuff.”  Well, I guess, that is true.  The excrement of worms can be used as fertilizer (in very, very large quantities of course) and in the grand circle of life that probably is ...

O-Target

The twin girls are at that fun stage where they are starting to read everything.  They notice words everywhere.  Yesterday when we went to Target Cassie asked, “Why is there an ‘O’ in Target?” “There’s not Honey, why do you ask that?” She pointed to the Target sign and sure enough when you look at it there is an “O”. ...

Welcome to my New Website!

“What do you write about?”  people ask. “I write about becoming a mom and being a mom.” I answer.  I want to give hope and compassion to those who are struggling with infertility and loss, but I also want to provide light-hearted encouragement to those who are now moms.  I have decided to combine my two blogs (Barren to Bonkers! ...

What Every Mother Wants to Hear

What Every Mother Wants to Hear

We’ve been discussing getting a pet at our house.  Cat, dog, fish…rock.  The conversations have been going on for a while and we (the parents) are just not quite ready to pull the trigger on any big decisions.  So the other day we were driving home from church and I overheard the kids talking about getting a kitten. Child 1: “Oh, kitties are so cute we ... Read More »
