Spring Has Sprung!

This is how I know that spring has officially begun: Soccer season begins!

My Big Fat Beautiful Family – I Love This Kid!

I miss this kid like crazy! One year ago, he left our home to join the Marines.

My Little Girls’ Big Day at the Salon!

Today was an exciting day for Autumn and Alexis! About twice a year I allow them to have their natural hair professionally blown out at the salon.

Do I Live in the Hood?

Do I live in the “Hood?” I’m not sure.  And what exactly is the “Hood” anyway? For years I’ve been trying to answer this question, yet the answer has eluded me.  I need to know!  I have my suspicions, but I need facts; the cold, hard facts! Jonathan, my teen son, often comments that we live ... [ Read More ]

Ring Worm Girl?

About a week or so ago, in this post, I shared that Autumn Joy caught ringworm.  I was pretty okay with that since ringworm is easily contracted and easily treatable.  No stigma needs to be attached (yeah right) as many kids in school catch it. - One week after treating her ringworm with ...
