It’s the Little Things Thursday

It’s the Little Things Thursday

I could really use a “Little Thing” this week.  The one that stands out for me happened this past weekend when Chloe headed off to spend the night at a friend’s house.  It was a last minute invite on Friday while we were eating dinner.  After Chloe got packed she came downstairs and told my(…)

It’s the Little Things Thursday

I remember the “Little Thing” post that I forgot from last week! Chloe does not like to write.  It is the one thing that I have left a little by the wayside, trusting that she will come around to it in her own time.  A few months ago I gave her a rhyming dictionary and(…)

The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ May 25th, 2010

Simple Woman’s Daybook FOR TODAY: May 25, 2010… Outside my window…the sun is shining brightly and the temperature on the thermometer is rising! I am thinking…about Chloe’s good friend Shannon who spent all night in the ER last night.  It seems as though she has broken her toe/foot and will see an orthopedic for treatment. (…)

Over at I ♥ Faces the theme for the week is the color yellow.  So the challenge is to have the color yellow and a human face somewhere in your photo.  Not sure what I am going to find for this one.  I have a series of photos that I took of Chloe on slide(…)

This week I was so touched to receive a poem, two actually, that were written by Chloe for me.  I had no idea she had done this for me!  She has been working on a book of poetry for months now, but it is mostly about the changing of the seasons.  She also wrote a(…)

I ♥ Faces ~ Celebrating Mom

I ♥ Faces ~ Celebrating Mom

In searching for a photo that celebrates “Mom”, many ideas went through my head, from pregnancy, to the 3 smiling faces of my children, to the exhausted not so fantastically flattering moments in my photo history and back again.  Since I am not for the not so flattering ones of me, I decided to skip(…)

It’s the Little Things Thursday

Over the years Chloe has always been disappointed that as the “big” sister, her siblings have not been all that responsive to her constant offers of help and support.  She could be so much help to me, in theory, but neither Jayden or Ava have really let her be of help to them. Recently, I(…)

Seeking Positive Gymnastics

Seeking Positive Gymnastics

Recently the weight of my actions as well as others at our gym has been weighing on my mind.  Throughout Chloe’s gymnastic years I have already made my share of mistakes.  From being that parent complaining loudly enough in the lobby for other patrons to hear, as well as staff, but not being the parent(…)

27 Don’ts for Parents of Gymnasts

27 Don’ts for Parents of Gymnasts

Someone from our gym found this article on the 27 Don’ts For Parents of Gymnasts that they were kind enough to share with us.  I am posting it here, first and foremost as a reminder to me, (and hopefully for other parents as well) to always be positive and supportive, and keep the long term(…)
