Once again, it is my dear friend Jennifer from Another Jennifer who reminded me about doing this important campaign before August, and therefore #Blogust has ended! Shot @ Life is an amazing movement to protect children worldwide by providing life-saving vaccines where they are most needed. In the month of August they are partnered with bloggers and Walgreens – every day during the month of August, the Shot@Life blog has shared a personal story about Happy and Healthy Firsts. For every comment or share of the Blogust posts, Walgreens...

Unlike our horrible, terrible, no good first day of Kindergarten, and a rough start to first grade, second grade is smooth sailing so far!   ...

If you had to choose a super power, would you want to be a truth reader, a healer, have magical powers, or be immortal? As I read the book Cephrael’s Hand, this is the question I asked myself. In this truly spellbinding epic fantasy, there are characters with all of these powers and more. I wish I had some of these powers in my daily life… Cephrael’s Hand: the story of 1 man trying to save the realm he swore to protect, even if it...Click To TweetPowered By CoSchedule Cephrael’s Hand is the story of one man trying to save...

Rest in peace Robin Williams. I truly mean that. I hope you have finally found the quiet you desperately needed. I pray that your desperate action will help and save countless others.   I couldn’t sleep last night. My mind just could not stop thinking about that moment in “Dead Poet’s Society” when the boys climb on their desk in support of their teacher, who was played by Robin Williams. “Oh Captain, my Captain” they stated. It was a scene forever burned in my brain. The moment when people decide...

I never talked to anyone about how sad I was after my first child was born. Looking back on it, I’m sure I had post postpartum depression (PPD) and I didn’t realize it. We had feeding/nursing and sleeping issues, all very normal new mommy issues, but ours were compounded by extreme external events. Within three months of my son being born, I out-processed from being active duty Air Force, packed up all of our belongings, and moved from Germany back to South Carolina. We were homeless, jobless, and I had a newborn. That summer...

I would guess that NO MATTER WHAT your stance on any issue out there – be it breastfeeding, working, guns, school vouchers, and so forth, all of us moms can agree that child abuse sucks. We can also agree that child endangerment, of any level, also sucks.  We want our children to be safe from harm, wherever that harm may come from. And as we learn once we have children, there is danger lurking everywhere, from choking hazards, illnesses, and sadly, even from people they know and love. Y’all know that I am a passionate advocate...

I must admit, my kids really like this Katy Perry song too. But nothing compares to the reaction this baby has when she hears this song. This might be the best 38 seconds you ever spend watching a video. You’re welcome! Share the love! ...

I need more Mommy Energy! I met Lizzy through my blogger friend Kerry at Breadwinning Mama. She and I have a lot in common. We both have three kids almost the same ages. She’s also an author and I learned that she had recently published a book for moms – Igniting Mommy Energy – and was conducting a blog tour. I immediately asked to be a part of it. I just got my copy in the mail yesterday, and I can’t wait to read through it, cause the good Lord above knows, I am lacking in the Mommy Energy these days. Once I finish...
