Funny Farm, Husband, Letters to my girls, Marriage, Momma, Parenting


We've hit this stage in our parenting where boys are starting to take notice of our girls. We were out to dinner one night and I noticed a boy "do a double take".  I put my head down and giggled.   Hubby is SO NOT READY for this stage. He said they can date as… Continue reading Entrust

Letting Go

Around Christmas, our oldest was invited to a youth group all-nighter. When I told my hubby that she was invited AND wanted to go, his response had me laughing so hard I was crying. He said, with all seriousness, "Why does she want to be with her friends instead of us?" To which I replied,… Continue reading Letting Go

Hubby, Before you turn 40

I think it only appropriate that since I wrote "letters" to my girls telling them what I wanted them to know before they turned 10, that I write one to my hubby before he turns 40.

He used to eat it in Kenya when he was a kid,… Continue reading Cereal Killer

Annual “Get Dad” Days

Over the summer months, the girls and I plan a surprise day for their dad. At first it was a day for fun and to let him know that we were thinking of him and wanted to do something special.

Housekeeping vs Home-Keeping

I am blessed with a wonderful husband who notices when things are piling up around the house that I can't get to. He will enlist the help of our girls and the three of them can bang out, so it shouldn't be a shocker when I walked in the door and I see that the… Continue reading Housekeeping vs Home-Keeping

Happily Ever After / Invested Forever After

Another letter to my girls.... Your dad and I met at church when he came here to the States to go to college. The first time I saw him walking his Nana into church, I thought he was really cute!

How to stop the “MALE SPOUSE SNORE”
