It’s the hip hop happenin’ thing, so I figured I would throw my hat into the ring with my own list of 10 things every child (in my house) needs to hear (CONSTANTLY.) If you’re looking for a deep and meaningful list, there are plenty out there and I don’t really want to beat a… Continue reading 10 Things Every Child Needs to Hear
It’s been a weird week. On Monday, my husband slipped and fell while working on his crane truck, and while falling is never a good time, he unfortunately wound up having his pinkie catch somehow as he fell and basically just destroyed it.

Just a quick pop-by say-hi. I thought I’d share something I came up with to distract my adorable monster Olivia (who refers to herself as both Olivia AND Monster so you know its legit) yesterday. She is pretty obedient, but of the school of ‘mom didn’t specifically say Don’t Climb Up The Side Of The… Continue reading Mission : Play With Your Food
It’s amazing to me that I don’t get paid just to write blog titles, first of all. Thirdly, I had the flu. (I skipped second just to be contrary, because it’s been that kind of week.) The flu bug only really took me down for about 24 hours, but that kind of overlapped with the… Continue reading Hey Howdy Ho Blog Title
