Where would you sit? How to Let Go and Live Life In the Front Row

live, life, laugh, fun, exciting, laughter, excitement, rides, women,

 

Where are you seated on this roller coaster ride known as life?
Do you often throw your hands up and squeal and live life to the fullest?

 

Or do you complacently sit around, with out much outward expression?  Do you hold yourself back from taking a moment to enjoy the little things in life?  Are you closed with your emotions?  Are you more reserved?

If you prefer the back row, why not take a ride in the front seat for a change? 

Give it a go! 

You won’t regret it, I promise. 

 

If you want to but aren’t quite sure how to let go keep an eye out for my How to Let Go and Live Life In the Front Row Blog series soon to Premiere.

Where ever you may decide to sit, we’re all together on this ride, called life. 

Please leave a comment in the comment section of this post so I can keep you updated to the first segment of this series.
Thanks!

Pancake Hair

So Eden, my daughter, wants to cut her hair to her shoulders. While we were on a walk I asked her if she was sure and why she wanted to cut her hair and she simply said ” because then when I turn to talk to someone when I’m eating pancakes, my hair won’t get all sticky and syrupy from touching my plate.” 8 year old logic at its finest.

What are some funny and humorous things that your kids have said!?

Open When…

Relationships and communication with our young people, no matter the stage of growth they are in, can at times seem daunting and confusing.

One moment our children want our love, cuddles, encouragement and support and the next it seems that no matter how we try to approach our children they will have nothing to do with it or us.

Just when you think you’ve mastered the steps of their new and complicated dance the music suddenly changes and you are left feeling left footed, unprepared and clumsy all over again.

A little something-something on the side.

ribbon, mom of the year award, 1st place

I have this imaginary game I play with myself called Mom of the Year and every time I do something I know will ‘wow’ the kids I give myself some imaginary ‘points’ and this gets me excited!  I love that the only person I am competing with is myself.

This will give me points even after they’ve left home!

I came across a web site with these fantastic recipes for convenient meals that you can prepare on the weekend.   Weekdays you grab a meal out of the fridge or freezer and throw it all in the crock pot.   It takes the worry and stress out of a parents concern on whether your family will be eating healthy meals at night especially with the many unforeseen time hampers during the busy workweek like unexpected stops at the wine store.

Since I currently stay home I don’t have much of an issue with this.

What it did get me thinking about is my many teenagers that are soon to embark on moving on with their lives *tear* and attending college and university (some of them will stay close’ish’ to home – an hour or 2 car ride away but still wanting the ‘full college experience’ aka freedom, aka dorm, aka big bucks *tear*) Continue reading

When was the last time you made a new friend?

Don’t you love it when you meet someone that you really click with?  You know, that friend that you meet and you just know that you are going to hit it off with a fondness that will last for many years to come.

 

But don’t you love it even more when your hubby or significant other hits it off with their significant other too?  It’s so fantastic since we all know it isn’t as easy to have the couples hit it off and it sure as hell is much easier to make time for friends when your partners hit it off too, am I right?

But the icing on the cake is when you have children, approximately the same age that also completely hit it off!! Continue reading

The little crook

How dare he

Trip me

Mock me

His behavior shocks me
