In the U.S., they mark certain months and/or colors as “awareness” for various causes. October, is known to many as “Breast Cancer Awareness” month. In accordance with that, many companies sell “pink” (the color signifying breast cancer awareness) items, and donate a percentage of the proceeds towards breast cancer research. Why am telling you this? Because it’s the preface of my latest “OMG did my 5 year old REALLY just say that” story. (Sadly I take many of the over the top remarks that she makes as a sort of flattery.) Continue Reading
It’s been over 2 weeks since I’ve blogged, and I apologize. It was nice to have a comment: “where are you Megs? I need a laugh!” Well I’m back. And here’s your daily laugh… as always: at my expense. Continue Reading
I’ve had this piece in my Drafts folder for a week now, and have rewritten it at least as many times. It started as factual and sappy, and I’m hoping it settles on enlightening, funny & sincere with only a hint of sap. What caused so much drama in my life that it took me a WEEK to blog about? It was the milestone of my youngest kiddo Aria graduating Preschool. Now pick your butt off the floor and stop laughing! I’m NOT (exactly) mourning the end of preschool.

Look, I dislike them so much that I even put it in my sarcasm font: morning people. See. The only exception to that rule is that if I stay up without going to sleep at ALL then yes, I WILL be a morning person.

It seems that The Daily Post has a knack for kicking me in the inspirational feels. At first when I saw that the word of the day was ‘breath’, I started singing the stalker anthem: “Every Breath You Take”, by The Police (Sting), but I promise I won’t be analyzing that song. These blogs were supposed to be all funny, but today life got me in the feels…but I’ll do my best to keep it light. I was struggling at figuring what to blog, and then as usual it hit right in the middle of disaster. Continue Reading
I was awakened by my little 5 year old at 6:30 am by a persistent “Mom. Mom. Mommy.” When the darling hubs (who KNOWS I am USELESS in the morning) tried to help her, she just kept “mom”-ing and we knew something was up.
