My Reasons for Kids Later Than Sooner….

Being an older Mom is more than a pain in the neck somedays. I’ve spoken to Moms who had kids in their twenties and thirties, but I don’t know anyone personally who has produced actual offspring in their 40’s.Of course there are the Hollywood ladies I’ve read about who have postponed childbearing into their 40’s and most of them…

Midwest Weather Roller Coaster!!

We had six inches of snow last Sunday and once again, hauled out the weary snow shovels. One week later, today, we set a record, a high of somewhere in the 90’s with huge wind gusts.

Wranglers! The flowering pear trees are now covered in snow and we think we saw Rudolph this morning. So…

Adventures at the St. Louis Zoo!!

What I’m really thinking! “Oh, how I long for the good ole days! When I used to run wild and didn’t have a care in the world.” The St. Louis Zoo is a wonderful place to visit, and it’s free! I think my kids really feel a connection to the zoo, and I did notice some similarities between the wranglers and the…
