How About “Dadsense”? ~ Because the men feel left out…

After my husband Joe watched the “Momsense” song, he found another Anita Renfroe video about “Dadsense“.  Now, I have to chuckle at someone even putting DAD and SENSE in the same sentence let alone in the same word!  I wonder to myself, how many mothers out there feel as though the fathers in the family(…)

Total Momsense

Total Momsense

Chloe and I  spent the afternoon at one of her friends’ houses for a birthday party this weekend.  Her mother asked me if I had seen this comedian on YouTube who does this funny ” Momisms” song.  Since I had not seen it, she pulled it up for me.  It is Anita Renfroe doing “Total(…)

One of Those Days

I am having one of those days where nothing seems to go my way.  In fact, I am having a whole week like that!  I am so irritable that my senses are on overload.  My hair that falls in my face like a mop makes me want to pull it out, or back, or shove(…)

Reasons Why We Home School

Reasons Why We Home School

When people ask our children where they go to school, and get the response back from them, “We are home schooled”, we often get that questioning look.  The look that says, “What planet are you from?”.  Believe it or not we consider ourselves to be pretty mainstream.  We did not choose to home school for(…)

Spending scheduled time with my “Walk and Talk” buddy Shana and her boys has been such a joy over the past months.  I look forward to getting out and sharing a piece of me with her, and getting to accept all the wonderful pieces of her she has to offer me.  Shana, I know you(…)

Simple Woman’s Daybook…January 25th 2010

Belated 2010 Resolutions

Belated 2010 Resolutions

I have recently been catching up on my blog post reading, and came across multiple writings on resolutions for the New Year.  Resolutions are not really my thing as I always have this image of dusty treadmills and weight benches used as clothing hangers!  Anyone who knows me realizes I could stand to loose about(…)

The Schwa Sound

The Schwa Sound

Apparently I am NOT smarter than a third grader!  Today I stumbled upon something that not only had I not heard of it before, but I thought it must have been a typo by the program creator.  Jayden has been doing a grade 2 spelling program, but the words are too easy.  I did not(…)

New but “Destructed” Clothing

So my friend Shana and I were doing our Wednesday mall walk and we stumbled upon something that I just knew would drive my dad nuts!  Since we did not have the kids with us this time, we wandered into Old Navy.  Our intention was to check out the $7 Jingle Jammies.  Due to the(…)

Computer Fest & What it Means to Me

Computer Fest & What it Means to Me

There is this lovely, (not really) little, (not really) event that Joey has to deal with at work every year called “Computer Fest”.  Like Joey’s job itself, I don’t know too many details about the whole thing, just that he is a “computer geek”!  I do know that it comes every year at holiday time(…)

The Dreaded Family Photo Shoot

The Dreaded Family Photo Shoot

Those of you with little ones will feel my pain.  I dread the holiday season every year, knowing we will have to get a reasonable photo to send out to all those that never see us, so they think we are the perfect family!  Seriously, who came up with this hair brained idea?  The last(…)
