Madness and Bacon!!

When I took the pledge to become a Mom, I had no idea what my brain was about to be subjected to. Really, this is motherhood, no wonder I’ve avoided it like the plague for so long. Our day begins with an abundance of screaming and sniping.  It’s not enough to get the wranglers rolled out of their bunks and down…

A Grand Mother’s Day!!

Could Mother’s Day have gone any better? Nope, Could the weather have been any nicer? No way! Could the wranglers have behaved any better? Probably not! What more could a Mom ask for?

One Step Forward, and Two Steps Back!!

The old saying, “One Step Forward and Two Steps Back,” can surely be applied to Spring this year.  Just when we think we have nailed the perfect weather, mild 70 degree temps and sunshine, here come the storms, clouds and cooler temps.  Actually this statement is appropriate when raising kids, or trying to, that’s what I’m attempting to…
