Age 2 Part 2 | Lip Picking, Nose Digging, Sneaking Toddler & Poopy Diapers Flying


"I guess we're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy ..." ~ Seal 2 1/2 is a busy age with awesome conversations, play and a few bad habits! I have to admit that life has been CRAZY since he turned 2 1/2 years old.

Goodbye Red Bird ... Awkwaaaaaaaaaaaard :)


OUR LITTLE RED BIRD :) HE LOVES DRESSING UP IN THIS BIRD COSTUME. Dear Fuhu, Inc., Thank you so much for the wonderful commercial with the "Good morning red bird ..." song.

I imagined us singing(image)

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Breast Cancer Awareness Month This is the time of the year for an "in your face" reminder to get a mammogram and show our support to others battling breast cancer.

My Stepmother Died Peacefully Today | Cancer


Today, I received notice that my step mother - the woman I called "Mom" my ENTIRE life and did her very best to raise me as her own child - was just not strong enough to fight the cancer any more. I had been in contact with her up until her birthday and then she became very distant the past month and a half (did not return calls, commented briefly on my post, etc). I thought she was mad at me(image)

2 Year Olds Are Terribly Terrific | Time To Retire "The Terrible Twos" Cliche


Terrific 2 Year Olds | No Such Things As Terrible Twos One would think that we would have ditched the term "terrible twos" by now. I absolutely hate it and feel like I was brainwashed to feel this way with child #1, though just did not see it that way by the time my 2nd child turned two and I certainly do not see it with child three. I think two years old is the most incredible stage in a child(image)

"Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

Toddler OCD | Wordy Wordless Wednesday


Cars Turned In The Same Direction ... Always! I know this is Wordless Wednesday, but I am wondering if your 2 year old does this, too? This picture was taken a few weeks ago when I noticed that he was walking the cars over and facing them in the same direction. He has since graduated to lining the cars up against the wall with the fronts facing outwards or directly beside each other on the (image)

R.I.P. Zig Ziglar (November 6, 1926 - November 28, 2012)| Wordy Wordless Wednesday My jaw just about hit the floor when I read that Hilary Hinton a.k.a. ZIG ZIGLAR died this morning. It is was not the shock of death itself as this man has been blessed to live a long 86 years. Although I never met Hilary, I have been reading, watching his videos and quoting Zig Ziglar for years.

Toddler Baby Had 104.7 Temperature - 1st Flu


Our 21 month old has been sick for 7 days total :( The nurses said it was the flu, but it seemed like something else because he only vomited when he had a bottle of milk and it was just little bits. I was scared that it was West Nile Virus (we're in Florida) or Meningitis. Aside of running to the store and getting what he needed, we all stayed in bed with him for 72 hours. His temperature was (image)
