Let it snow!

Christmas brought our first whisper of snow here in southern MA. It was just that though, a whisper, nothing stuck. All the while El Paso TX, once our home had inches to play in. Why oh why did not more of the country have a white Christmas?  Very few places in America saw snow this […]

This is how they advertised Lego with girls in 1981. Way to go Lego!  These days though not every company is so respectful our our children, or childhood.  These days this is the kind of thing marketed at our young daughters. (Photo Went Missing!) While the one of the left at least is not too […]

If breastfeeding is sexual, than a bottle is a Dildo!

Once again ignorance raises it’s head, this time in a Target store in Houston TX. A mother needed to nurse her hungry baby while shopping and went to find a quiet spot in the store to do so, she found a less populated area and did the natural thing, fed her baby. However she was […]

Loved

Was there something in your home that was gifted to one person but others can’t keep their hands off it? LOL This seems to be the case with many items here. The first time on Christmas that it happened was with this scarf. Our oldest daughter made it for her brother who was so happy […]

Did your husband need a doula too?

      Everyone I know who has hired a doula for a birth has raved about the benefits. It is so common these days that I do not think I need to go into all the supportive things a doula does in a birth for the mother and baby. A new question though is now […]

Sugar Glider Cage Set Love

   This is our sugar glider cage. Inside is the newest no sew cage set. It is all fleece and safe for the little loveable fluff balls. Normally I would sew cage sets, but alas, both my sewing machines are broken and have been for a while now, so I had to get creative, and […]

Shiny!

One of the gifts I adore! Mystic Topaz! It is hard to photograph, for this amateur at least.  It is not as blue as the top photo on most light but the second photo does not catch all the colors either. This stone has a lot of purple in it and teal and a bit of other […]

What do I get a nurse for the holidays?

   I am lucky enough to know more than my fair share of fantastic nurses. If you know me well, you also know I like nurses a lot more than Drs and I am often asking them their opinions on things because I find they pay attention, that they do so much, that while they […]

Is the UK winning?

    When it comes to trying to save the planet is America winning? We like to think of ourselves as the best at everything right? Maybe not. Goodness knows we are proud of our country, and will good reason but is planet recovery something we can be proud of at this point? Are other countries […]

Do you like rugs?

   Rugs are nice to walk on, nice for baby to scrawl on, and I think they might even help keep the house warmer. However…. they are a pain in the butt when it comes to keeping clean when you have 4 children, a very old dog, a cat, and a military guy with military […]

I win!

   I am competitive with my husband. I admit it. Sometimes I just have to win. He is brilliant, has gotten more handsome with age, and he has this out of the house life that I don’t. Sometimes I just have to be better at something than he is. We play a lot of game […]
