The “No Swings” Initiative

Swings should be taken out of all parks.  As much as I may love the upper body workout as I stand in the dirt, in the sun, dodging kicks in the head, hearing “Higher Mommy, higher!”  I need a break.

My Homework

Guess what! I had homework for the first time in years last weekend. Sunday night at 8pm I had my scissors, tape, glue, stickers, pictures and markers out. I was attempting to finish writing about my weekend with Chocolate Banana Bear (CBB), my daughter’s class bear.

Chocolate Banana Bear's Fishing Trip

Morgan had been telling me about CBB for weeks. She was so excited the day we brought him home. It was finally our turn to take CBB everywhere with us all weekend long. I have to admit I was excited too. I had never done this sort of thing before so we were on this journey together. Together, together, together… alone.

Things You Should Never Have Said

Everyday I find myself saying things that I really shouldn’t be saying.  In fact no one should ever say these things.  I bet, if you are a mom you have said them or, if you are not a mom, your mom probably told you. 

I’m not talking about your typical “Don’t’ eat what has been on the floor,” “Wash your hands after you sneeze in them,” “We don’t hit our friends”.  No, those are daily sentences.  I’m talking about the ones you say and then you can’t believe that sentence just came out of your mouth.

Redshirting Morgan

To My Little Morgan,

I love you so much! You are such a smart and fun kid.  You have Daddy’s determination and attention to detail.  When you were just a few months old you lined up all of our shoes by style and size.  You amaze me!  I love how you color your pictures with the entire box of crayons in “rainbow style.”  Speaking of rainbows, right now you and Emily believe that if you see a rainbow you will turn into a fairy.  Emily is your best friend (most of the time).  You have lots of friends in school and enjoy making friends wherever we go.  You include everyone but you also want the security of your family when you approach new friends to play.  Sometimes you say “Mommy, will you go with me so I can talk to her?”
