Wordless Wednesday

The Power Couple… Chris Brown and Rihanna… Until that fateful day.

Then, 2 days ago, Chris Brown re-appears at the BET Awards (Black Entertainment Television Awards) after going away for over a year, with an incredible Michael Jackson Tribute.

The Jackson Family has obviously forgiven Chris Brown, and requested him for the tribute on the one-year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death. He performed, then he broke down crying.

Summer Camps and Flood Gates

Sometimes I just feel so happy that I have a Blog. It’s become my little place I go when I’m feeling happy, sad, confused, angered, anxious and celebratory.

This morning I shipped two little boys off to camp. I know what you’re saying… “Day camp! Get over yourself, Mamma!” But really, I’m not over it. I’m totally still in it. And the flood gates haven’t shut off yet. If you’re a mom with a kid starting a first day of school, a first day of daycare, a first day of camp, or any place where you’re sending your child into the unknown, then I know you can relate. Unless you can’t, and that’s cool too. 😉

Living Through Tough Economic Times

I’d like to be able to say that our family is among those that have emerged unscathed by the economic hardships being experienced by many these days. Unfortunately, I cannot.

Denise Richards & A Call To Action

Denise Richards & A Call To Action

It all started with a Facebook status update. I had left my Facebook page open on our office computer Saturday afternoon, and my husband had just sat down to check the daily sports stats online. “Come quick” he said, “You have to see this.” He then pointed to one of the status updates in my account. “Look at this 7 month old puppy Golden doodle. He is going to be killed in a shelter on Monday if they can’t find him a home.”

The Wooden Bowl

I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson.
The old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered.

Lessons My Father Taught Me

Sunday is Father’s Day. A very special day for Dads everywhere. I wrote a Mother’s Day Tribute, so it is only fair to do the same for Father’s Day. But today, Dad, it’s all about you. I always Blog about mom, and rarely about you. But you have impacted my life more than you could ever imagine. I am where I am today because of mom’s nurturing, but your guidance.

Your Kids & The Line Between Being Assertive and Rude

Your Kids & The Line Between Being Assertive and Rude

We all want assertive kids. We all want polite kids. We all want kids with great self esteem and a high confidence level. I am sure no one is on the fence here. Where the lines get blurred, is how to raise an assertive child, to teach them to get their needs met, without being obnoxious and rude.
