My Baby

We attended our first open house to evaluate kindergarten this morning. I cannot believe my little man will be starting school next year. It's been said a million times, but those years fly by so fast.

When my little guy was born, I was a huge stress ball. I suffered from PPD, was scared to cut his fingernails, carry him anywhere alone or leave him behind. It's amazing not only how much a little person grows in their first years, but also how much a mother learns in those early days, weeks and months. You learn to trust yourself, to trust your intuition, to stand behind your beliefs and that nothing is more important than your little person and your little family.

It really is amazing that something so little can change life so much. In a good way.



  1. Look at his little sweater vest! I think you are raising my future child :)

  2. What a cutie...and yes they grow up so fast if you just blink it seems like you miss something major..Enjoy them while there are young because before you know it they will be bringing a baby home to Grandma....

  3. Such a sweet baby to a handsome little man. I know when it was time to visit schools it was a hard decision for me. Prayer worked wonders for me and I have never looked back.

  4. Quack! Quack!
    I love the pic with him in his lil' yellow shoes!!
    Awwwwwww!!! How cute :)

  5. Oh he is just so adorable... I can't believe how fast they grow, before I know it we'll be doing the same thing!! My girl turned 3 this year, eeekkk!


  6. Your son is soooo cute. It is amazing how quickly the years go by. My son is in first grade this year, and I just can't believe it.

  7. hi,
    Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.
    To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

    I have added you to my blogroll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
