Just when you think things couldn't be better.....

Have you ever noticed that no matter how great your life is going, something is always going wrong? Kind of like that song, "Ironic" It rains on your wedding day or the plane crashes just when the guy gets up the nerve to take his first flight. It seems to be almost a guarantee in my life.  To the point that I can not be truly happy because I just know

Van Battle Royale

*BING!* *BING!* *BING!* The seat belt reminder light on the dashboard of my semi-new-to-me Toyota Sienna flashes faster and faster. I think... You can't tell me what to do!! I will put my seat belt on when I am good and ready!

I have somehow gotten into an ongoing battle with my bossy van and though I may have already started driving, I can't bring myself to

Love Thy Neighbors

I live in a neighborhood of middle class, middle sized families. The neighbors on either side are older, retired and there are families with school aged children across the street. For some reason, they are all very friendly only when walking by. They will  wave and say Hello but there is only one family that will invite us in and that is only because their day home provider happens to be my best friend. There no kids playing outside on our street.  What happened to street hockey and bike riding? I remember a time that neighbors would

Mommy brain Monday

I didn't have a major mommy brain moment this week, I did have a bunch of little ones. Hmmm maybe my brain is coming back! One can hope right? So I thought I would give you a run down of the funny moments this week.

An on going one is that I seem to not be able to turn when I need to. I get into autopilot while driving and end up following a route that is familiar but is no where close to where I need to be. My friends and husband all have just started

Mommy Brain Monday

So the other day, I was picking up my step kids from school. I was waiting in the van in the school parking lot for my son to run in and get them. It was a warm day so I had the window down and was enjoying some sunshine when another mom pulled up beside me, jumped out and ran into the school.

I sat there for a minute or 2, checking my email, facebook, twitter, ect. When I realized

What the TARDIS?

My husband has been watching a bunch of Doctor Who episodes recently. Sorry for all you Doctor Who fans out there, while I find the show mildly entertaining, it doesn't capture my attention for long. That being said, one thing I have noticed is that the Doctor's companions will go to another time and occasionally leave messages for themselves or others.

If a TARDIS had access to you and you could go back to an earlier time, what message would you leave yourself?

There have been many instances in my life that I made choices that

Such a big girl!

Today Mommy took me back to that place! The one where everyone was so rude! This time they poked me 3 times! I got weighed too and the nurse says that I am a big girl! I am on the 85 percentile for my BMI.

Guess what!? I can sit up all by myself now! I still fall over if I loose my concentration and I can't get back up but I and working on that! I love to

Better stock up on Giant Marshmallows!

We haven't been on vacation in over 2 years. The last time, we took all the kids camping in Drumheller.

 I think.

When I was working, we had 2 weeks vacation time every year that we had to take. I was in no position financially to go anywhere. I had just gotten out of school,  had recently left my husband and was trying to keep 3 teenage boys fed. My vacation time was spent

All Grown Up?

Everyone tells me that I don't look old enough to have a 20 year old son. I am sure they are right, since EVERYONE says it!  I had a guy ask me once if my oldest 2 boys were adopted. I get ID'd at the pub all the time. I was not a teenage mom, I had my oldest 2 months before my 20th birthday. (I know, I know, that was young and technically, I was a teenager, but I also had taken Early Childhood Development in college.)

I am flattered that people can't tell I am pushing 40. And a little annoyed. For the simple fact

Mommy Brain Monday

I thought it might be fun to have a day set aside for my mommy brain moments. Heaven knows I have enough of them!

So here is the Mommy brain Moment of the day.

The other day I was up late at night, tweeting, of course. I mean, what else would I do at night? Definitely not sleep when Cadadoodle is fast asleep. That would be weird.

I am new to Twitter. I am not sure I understand how people connect, it seems very egocentric to me, a bunch of people

A Bunch of Firsts

Sorry Mommy and I have been MIA this past week or so. We had a very busy weekend and then on Wednesday Mommy got real sick. We had to take her to the hospital cause she fainted and now has a big bruise on her cheek! We were real worried about her but the doctor said she just has a virus.

On Tuesday, I got to try some cool stuff! First, Daddy gave me a bottle of something white, like booby juice but it wasn't booby juice. It tasted ok, but I like my booby juice better.

Then later at dinner, Mommy gave me
