Recently, my best friend asked me what my favorite color was. Mind BLOWN! And I know what you are thinking, "What a bad friend!" WRONG! The reality is, I, super duper capitalized and emphasized I, didn't know the answer. If you ask my daughters about their favorite colors, they'll shoot an answer back to you … Continue reading My favorite Colour…
Most nights are pretty predictable at my house. I get home after the gym. Eat a quick meal while the kids do some last minute running around, screaming and playing hide and seek with their baby brother. Get the bottles of milk ready for baby David, or Toddler David, I don't know really it sounds … Continue reading Routine Prayer
We've all heard the tired cliché, "Wait until you have kids of your own; then you'll understand." Usually, we get this from our parents with whom we've had some disagreement or misunderstanding, or yes, even a full-fledged screaming match (e.g. with Mom...again). ::rolls eyes:: But how often do we think about when we are old and … Continue reading Adult Kid
A Happy Meal?
Several months ago, I took my daughter to Mcdonald's after a doctor's visit. (Probably NOT the healthiest option, but it made her smile after getting some routine bloodwork.) It's not called a Happy Meal for nothing. She unpacked her happy meal, chicken nuggets, fries, and a cheeseburger with no pickles. Using the fries as teeth, … Continue reading A Happy Meal?
Recently my daughter's teacher asked me if we go to church? My son and daughter attend a private Christian School, and I wondered hesitantly if she was asking because one of them had done something wrong. But then I thought, I do go to church everday. Every morning when I wake up and thank God … Continue reading Church

If you utilize any form of social media, then it's very likely you have encountered the Grumpy Cat meme. But...I bet you've never seen the Pity Cat meme... Ok. That is a really cute, sad kitty, but we all KNOW a Pity Cat. They thrive off your pity and NEED your attention. Yet, rather than … Continue reading Pity Cat
"Mommy, can I ask you something?" Sofia begins 5-6 conversations a day with that question. "Sure," I say, quickly pondering what outrageous interrogation will ensue. "Is it hard to be a Mommy?" This was the second time in the past week that she had asked me. The first time, I responded with a lot of … Continue reading The Jackpot
Quality versus Quantity
Every morning, without fail, my two year old asks, "Mommy, you going to work?" She looks up at me with those big brown droopy eyes, and frowns with genuine concern. It breaks my heart every time I answer, "Yes, Vicky." I feel guilty to leave her when she pleads: "I wanna stay with you", "I … Continue reading Quality versus Quantity
I don't remember who decided to go on strike, but most of us jumped on the bandwagon pretty quickly... Who, in their right mind, enjoyed the Hot-Lunch at school? It was always corn-dogs, green beans, apple sauce, or less-than-thoroughly-cooked pizza, that was more tomato sauce than crust. It didn't matter what it was, the stagnant … Continue reading Hot-Lunch
