And Then She Turned Six

by MARIA on September 27, 2012

My sweet baby girl is six today! She’s given me six years of joy and love, and an endless supply of wet smoochy kisses. She makes me laugh out loud with her hilarious observations and her snarky attitude. She is helpful and polite and such a lovely little soul. She’s everyone’s friend, but don’t mess [...]


Stay At Home Mommy Limbo

by MARIA on September 16, 2012

The kids have been back to school for two weeks now and I cannot lie, I’m kind of lost Since having kids, I’ve been the main non-working parent with them at all times. My oldest is almost nine which means almost nine years of having at least one child with me all the time, every [...]


Back To School Shopping – Great Deals

by MARIA on August 24, 2012

I just finished the back to school shopping for the kids a couple of days ago (school starts September 4th here), and I was able to take advantage of some great deals. My kids have this funny way of outgrowing everything this time of year, so short of socks and underwear, we needed a lot. [...]

Our favorite stops included the Aquarium, the Museum of Science and the Museum of Art. The kids LOVED their first subway rides, and it was just a really fun [...]

We stayed at this wonderful resort called the Nonantum Resort – it was five minutes from several beaches, and a ten minute walk from Dock Square (the main part of town). We lucked out in every way – our room was perfect, [...]

Sex Ed At School In Grade Three

by MARIA on June 26, 2012

So this morning I’m putting my son’s lunch in his bag and see a notice from his teacher in his agenda that they will be talking about “Growth and Development” during the last three days of school. This means that he will learn: The basic changes in growth and development of humans from birth to [...]


Playing In The Rain

by MARIA on June 13, 2012

It was POURING last night and the kids looked at me with their “can we go outside” puppy eyes, and who am I to deny the puppy eye power? If I was smart I would stripped them down and bathed them a la Mother Nature. Next time.


All I Want For Mother’s Day

by MARIA on May 12, 2012

Mother’s Day is this weekend and that means that I will be spoiled and pampered and regaled all day Sunday. Probably not. I’ve been married a LONG time (11+ years) and a mom for 8+ years, and I’ve learned that the secret to a happy (LASTING) marriage and life is to LOWER ONE’S EXPECTATIONS. Now [...]


My five year old is CONSTANTLY drawing and yesterday she decided that would draw me. I think it’s dead accurate. By the way, I really am that thin. And my ponytail is perfection. I’ve never looked better!
