NinaMy name is Nina, but the little people running around my house call me Mommy. :) The MAN and I have been married for almost 9 years and it hasn't always been easy, but it has been FUN!! Together we have 3 kids, 3 dogs and 2 cats. So yeah, we're busy. I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, taking pictures of my kids, gardening and just generally spending time with my family. I love blogging about my everyday life as a Mommy and wife. There is never a dull moment!

Life……Not Always The "Ideal Situation"

Tomorrow is “D” Day, and I should be sleeping, but instead I thought I’d blog, get it all out so to speak. When some people ask me about the divorce and I answer honestly, they’re surprised. Surprised that I have already moved on, that I am actually looking forward to the divorce. What most people…

Irrational Mommy Fears…..Part II

I’ve talked about irrational Mommy fears here before, but now I have a whole new set of irrational fears now that Lex is in full-time school. When I drop him off he has to walk all by himself to his line outside his classroom door. That’s when I stand there and wait until he walks…

Potty Training….Also Known As Hell In My House

Well, it’s time. It’s time for Miss. Lo to get with the program and kick the diaper habit. I am a firm believer to let your kids tell you when they’re ready, but Lo is head strong and also not a fan of undies. She’s a diaper fan. If asked if she wants to sit…

Feeling It Now…….Fear

I hate that word: fear. I’ve never been one to “fear” anything (other than spiders), but with the divorce finally starting to become real – we’re getting ready to file papers as soon as we can figure out what the Hell most of it means – I’m realizing that I am going to be on…

The Laws Of Teenagers And How They Can Effect You

Raven is 15 years old going on 5. Granted, this whole divorce thing has turned her world upside down and flipped around, but still…the girl is the biggest drama queen. I had actually thought of just not telling her and letting her think her Dad was abducted by aliens and is allowed to come home…
