Advocate for the Worms

Advocate for the Worms

What are you passionate about?  What bumper sticker is on the back of your Crossover?  For Callie it is worms.  You know the creepy crawly thing that come out after the rain (we’ve just had 35 days straight of rain, or something like that, so we have had lots of worm exposure.) So last week we were ready to go ... Read More »

O-Target

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”. ...

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 »

On the Stage

Last Friday was the 4th grade Family Breakfast where all the fourth graders come in before school with their families, have breakfast and put on a short concert.  It is always super cute, they do it for every grade, and even though this was the sixteenth family breakfast I’ve been to (one for each kid, each year for the last ...

Christmas Crafts?

“Can I have the scissors?”  Cassie comes asks me while I’m eating my breakfast.  “Can I have some tape?” She asks a few minutes later.  I can tell she is busy at a project in the other room.  Based on her past track record with tape and scissors I’m a bit nervous, but I haven’t finished my Cheerios yet and ...

Dalmatians at Thanksgiving?

The other night we are all sitting around the dinner table and Cassie gets up, all of a sudden and disappears.  She comes back in a few minutes dressed in her Halloween costume, the dalmatian.  She goes about eating her dinner as if nothing happened. The upside is we have definitely gotten our moneys worth out of Cassie’s costume.  The downside, ... Read More »

Johnny’s Play

We went to the theatre this weekend…at the middle school.  Johnny was in the production of “Adventures of a Comic Book Artist”.  It was a really cute play about super heroes.  Johnny played one of the four super heroes that comes to life after the comic book artist uses a magical pen.  His character was Triple Time (a really fast ...

Parenting Advice from my Frozen Lasagna

So I went to put in a frozen lasagna (usually I make homemade lasagna but life got in the way tonight) and the film cover that you’re supposed to remove ten minutes before it’s done was printed with one sentence, highly researched quips: “Kids who have regular family dinners may get better grades.” “Kids who have frequent meals together may be more likely ...

Top 5 Signs Your Child Might NOT be Ready to Use Scissors Unsupervised

  I know, I know, you’re thinking what on earth were you doing while your kids ran around the house in a crazy cutting frenzy?  Well, these are cumulative findings that have been discovered over the course of time, however I am baffled that at my kids’ ages these still occur.  I don’t get it.  But maybe it’s like the urge ...

Family Photo Flop

In August I bought bright-colored sundresses for all the girls and bold colored polo shirts for the boys for our family photo.  I thought I’d haul everyone to a local garden and get some great shots of the family.  Now it is late October, it was 39 degrees and a picture of our family huddling together with windblown hair is not ...
