Branded. Some More Than Others.

I like to believe that I’m a reasonable parent. I love spoiling my kids on MY terms, not theirs. When they ask for something, sometimes they get it. If they ask for two… they get none. Doesn’t matter what it is or where we ...

Skateboard Fun without the Injuries

This past summer, Miss M learned to skateboard.  She’s only 7 so I was in awe… it’s something that I NEVER learned how to do.  I enjoyed skiing and ice skating, but put wheels under me and I was a mess. DH, on the other ha ...

Fundraiser… boring. iPhone… fun.

If you’ve read my blog before, you have some idea that Miss M is a tech-geek while Miss K is a girly-girl. Miss M could get lost for hours and hours in a video game if we let her. Miss K, on the other hand, would play dolls, dress-up ...
