My Son is Like ESPN

My Son is Like ESPN: All Sports, All the Time.

I swear if he doesn't get a scholarship to college one day (preferably UNC of course) I will be shocked.

Current sport obsessions are baseball and lacrosse. Mike and Walker play baseball in the backyard every evening (while mommie has some me time) and are beating up his room playing lacrosse. His nicely decorated room has become a bit of a mess - what better excuse to redecorate, right?

I've put a moratorium on basketball inside the house, moving them to the back deck.

My kitchen and living room are covered with balls, as is the backyard.

And I'm seriously thinking about adding a trophy wall somewhere in the house. We've got three already and he's only five!

But of course, I wouldn't have it any other way. What about you?

  1. I know what you mean! My son is 6 and the same way. We have a basketball room on our 3rd floor with 2 baskets, one at each end. He loves it. Last year, we added an outside basket too. Looking ahead, any sort of college scholarship would be awesome, you know?

  2. What a little MVP! Sounds like he may be a Tar Heel yet. :)

  3. Love it! It's so great when kids have a true passion for something. For my son, it is baseball. Even our cat is named after Pudge Rodrigez (the old Detroit Tigers catcher). Looks like you better get yourself a comfy fold-out chair!

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 …
