Rebel Visit to the OBGYN

Rebel Visit to the OBGYN

Every Sunday night I carefully review my calendar for the upcoming week to make sure we have all appointments and activities covered. I cringed a little when my eyes fell on Wednesday’s first entry – “8:00 OBGYN appointment.” Mental note to self – shave legs Wednesday morning. My rebel moment While driving to my appointment […]

Stumbling Toward the Last Day of School

Today I was taunted by a box of tissues. Not even Kleenex, mind you,  but generic Target up & up™ brand tissues. The tissues sit in a bin in our utility room next to a disgustingly dirty backpack and mock me by representing the memory of “enthusiastic August mom” while laughing at “stumbling toward the last day of school May mom.” […]

Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor’s Babysitter

Our subdivision participates in the Nextdoor website. For those unfamiliar, Nextdoor is self-described as “a private social network for your neighborhood.” Recent posts have included requests for recommendations for a lawn service and a handyman, and photos of patio furniture for sale. And then this post caught my eye last Tuesday: Anyone have a babysitter they would recommend? […]

#Back-to-School Picky Eater Lunch Packing Blues

It’s back-to-school time – that time of year for lots of great blog posts with suggestions for making healthy school lunches. Pictures accompanying these articles run the gamut from ultra-Pinteresty to simple suggestions for quick and healthy lunches. And for just a fleeting moment, these posts make me feel … hopeful. “This year will be […]
