My sister was right.

my sister was rightI’d never admit it, but my sister was right.

A few months ago, as I was purging out the excess from my closet, I posted a question on my Facebook page.

“How many pairs of yoga pants do I really need?”

My sister went off on me.

Not in a bad way, but she didn’t exactly mince words.  In part, she said [Read more…]

My Kids Make Me Laugh about Twins

My kids make me laugh almost daily, even when I’m not expecting it.  Like the other day when they saw twins.

As an adult, twins aren’t that big of deal to me.  I graduated from high school with two sisters who happened to be idential twins, and that kind of made twins seem normal to me.

I’d forgotten that twins fascinated me as a kid.

As a kid, I thought twins were cool.

I wanted a twin so bad.  Obviously, I could then go crazy and break all the rules and blame everything on my evil twin… all the time claiming to be a good girl. [Read more…]

How MOPS saved me

MOPS, if you don’t know, stands for Mothers of PreschoolerS.  Groups of moms with young children meet all over the country to chat, craft, and remember that they are not alone.  I would not have made it to potty training without them.

One of the things the ladies of my MOPS group taught me was the importance of saying thank you.  It may be belated, but that doesn’t diminish my gratitude.

As I shared yesterday, I became a stay at home mom when my oldest son turned two.  My younger son was a mere eight months old (24 -16 = 8).  It was the start of summer, and I quickly discovered that all the activities and clubs and support for moms with littles was a school-year kind of thing.

Top Nine Things I’m Learning At Blissdom

what i've learned at blissdom so farI’m learning a ton at Blissdom this week.  It’s huge and overwhelming and there are things I want to change right this minute.  But the conference isn’t even over.  I need the dust to settle.

I promise I won’t post endlessly* about my fabulous blogging conference and all the free stuff… blah blah blah.  I know not all of you are bloggers and don’t even care.

edited:  I’m continuing to post what I’ve learned at Blissdom.  The next post dishes on Jon Acuff’s #5club event.  Go look!

(but if i’m honest, i’m most excited about the new grape-apple flavor of GoGo squeeZ i’m bringing home for my kids.)

But if you’ve ever been ANY kind of conference, I think you’ll find this funny.  Honest.

(Since 33% of this list is about smart-phones, it means I really did do an entire week of posts devoted to my phone.  I bet you thought I couldn’t do it.)
