A little insight into who we are and who we were..."BMK"
We have a new set of letters around our house. Much like the average person has LOL or TTYL we have BMK. That means Before Macaroni Kid. Our husbands will often use it as a timeline...was that BMK or After?...when you used to be home every night, dinner was on the table when I came home, or the laundry was caught up on all the time (who am I kidding...those things didn't REALLY happen).
We may have less time to make dinners and ...

Some resources that have PARTIALLY helped calm me down... for now...
Am I the only one that is in a complete panic about their child starting Kindergarten next year?? Will she be ready? Will the kids and teachers like her? Will there be enough tissue in the huge pack I bought at Costco to make it through the day…. for me, of course, not my child!! For me, it feels like the first big test of whether or not I’ve prepared my child for this momentous milestone. Before I had children, I was a teacher…. and I even taught Kindergarten ...

Are You Prepared?
The number one topic of conversation with all of my friends this week has been the violence in local areas. The overwhelming sentiment is the reality that none of us seemed exactly sure what to do if put in that unthinkable position or better yet, how to avoid being in that position. Although I do not think we should avoid going outdoors or live in fear, I do believe this has started a valuable dialogue and started everyone thinking more about our personal security. We have compiled a few web ...

Why Choose This School? Debby's Take.
I looked high and low for a dance studio for my youngest, now 4, to attend. I had had several experiences with some local area dance studios with my eldest years ago and to be quite honest, I was never impressed. I was actually pulled aside in one studio when my Emma decided that she would rather be break dancing than doing tap of ballet.
When Peyton began asking to " do ballet." I was kind of at a loss and internally rolled my eyes.
Where in the world was I ...

Finding My Family. Discovering a local talent.
These are SOME of my beautiful family pictures taken by Ginger Hites of Frames Of Infinity Photography.
I choke up looking at this moment below. It's just so "raw" and "real." How Peyton is smooshed into Steve's arm. How Emma is the center of his world. How Mady is nowhere to be found, because she's throwing a tantrum. It's the epitome of all that I love in this world. Captured in a lens.
Most times when I write a review I have to delve into my ...
