Finding homeschool co-op friends.

As I’ve started to dip my toes into the homeschooling experience I’ve found myself swarmed by an extremely kind and generous community. Long gone are the days of isolation for homeschooled children. Homeschooling friends old and new seem to be coming out of the woodworks, and I feel like soon enough, we’ll know just as… read the rest.

Chapter 2| The Red Carpet (Read Chapter 1 here) “Do you like the red dress or the gold dress?” I asked my sister in the dressing room at Macy’s. It was a day before my flight to LA for a movie premiere and red carpet event. Nothing like last-minute shopping. “I like the gold,” my… read the rest.

Week after week my heart was breaking for parents facing terrible tragedies. A split second is all it takes for an accident to occur. A child to falls into a gorilla pen. A toddler is captured by an alligator. A child is forgotten in a car on a hot summer day. A babysitter gives a… read the rest.


Some tips for straightening curly hair for the first time

After years of wondering and putting it off I finally agreed to let my daughter get her hair straightened. Don’t freak out, we didn’t do anything permanent. Just a blowout and flat iron appointment. We did give it a try about a year and a half ago while we were on vacation. But without the proper… read the rest.


Should you take your 3 or 4-year-old to see Finding Dory? Here's a 5-year-old's review on Finding Dory.

Last night my 5-year-old daughter and I screened Finding Dory. This girl was READY. I’m talking countdowns, was dressed in blue when I came home, with her “talk like a whale” pinned to her top. The only movie we’ve been waiting this long for is Moana, and we still have a lot of waiting to go…. read the rest.


The BFG Movie red carpet premiere invite

CHAPTER 1 | The Invitation I climbed into bed before 11pm. This was early by my standards. But it had been a long day of shuffling the kids to and from school, and my daughter’s kindergarten graduation was the next morning. I leaned over the side of my bed and reached for my phone charger…. read the rest.

I don’t talk about him here much, but it’s not for lack of caring. Did you know my husband is a drill sergeant? No, not really, but here at home in the late afternoon can turns into one. “Let’s go! Time for a family workout!” My husband barks the words and the kids go running…. read the rest.


Deciding home school

This summer I am deciding if I’m going to unenroll my daughter from public school and homeschool her next year. But if you were to ask me for my answer today it would most definitely be yes. Yes I am. I’ve told a handful of friends and my husband and the first question is always… read the rest.


I got my ancestry DNA testing reviews results and they weren't what I expected.

I’ve always been a little envious of people who know their heritage. People who can trace their family tree back to a specific country or region, or know when and how their family immigrated to the states. My grandmother on my mom’s side has done a lot of genealogy and can trace our roots back… read the rest.

Lil’ J and I went to see Alice Through the Looking Glass earlier this week and her opinion was not what I expected. If you missed it, here’s my take on the movie. I thought she would be scared and confused or maybe even a little freaked out, but she actually liked it. Here’s an… read the rest.
