I Did What I Said I Wouldn’t Do…….

I did it. I bought my son a cell phone. I have a really good reason though!!! We don’t have a home phone, so if something happens my kids have no way of getting in touch with me. What could possibly happen?? Their dad watches them while I work, he’s almost 50!! Anything could happen!!…

Artwork Display

Now that The Younger has started kindergarten, I am overwhelmed with papers. I figured out that each person in the house needs a bin that they are responsible for checking if they’re missing paperwork or to see if they have mail (this is mostly for the 6’6″ child in my house), but I was struggling…

Yeah, That

My Summer Project

“Okay, Bob. Good night. See you in the morning.” “Wait, Mom? Can I get a drink of water?” “Your water is right here on your desk.” “Okay. Good night. Mom? Don’t we need to get new soccer shoes?” “Yes, Bob. Now it’s time to stop talking and start sleeping. Goodnight.” “Mom, one more thing.” “What,…

Organizing Stuffed Animals

The Younger loves stuffed animals. She refuses to part with any of them, and that leads to messes like this: The rooms in our house are pretty small, so any sort of clutter immediately looks like a disaster area. We pick up our rooms almost daily, so it gets frustrating when no matter what you do, you…
