I Spy!

For a moment I was upset, but then I thought better of it. I SPY with my Little Eye...everyone in the World. All at the same time, and all in their own little world, thinking they are safe and secure behind that webcam. On that cell phone. Not so...

Rolling with the Flow...

How do I explain to you where I am at in this moment of my life? So many things going on, and all at once. Wonder if I have enough words to give you to paint a picture of clarity that you will recognize. I shall try.   Let's see.   In 5...

Dear Holy Roly

Is it all that imperative that we teach four and five year old children that the devil lives under the earth and has a fiery pit for all the non-believers, or would be bad doers in the world? WHY? Why would you tell that to a child who is afraid of...

For Women Only...

So if you are a woman, and this blog is titled for women only so I hope you are, you are going to totally get this post. If you are a man, exit left already as you are uninvited. Thanks! Well I've had a blissful few months with no periods and I...

Well there all that is...

Sometimes I need to just shut my mouth. Well a lot of times. Even when I think I am helping, it doesn't always help. I forget that when typing on fb, or any other social media, my heart felt emotions don't come through. Sometimes it seems I am...

Adventures Galore...

I took two Benadryl last night at 7:30 and went to bed. Since I don't get up till 6:45, I slept what? 11 hours and 15 minutes. Because I slept and woke up so many times, I had several dreams. None of them had anything to do with the other ones. How...

The Truth

There is this basic truth in life, and it is for everyone the same. Though we don't all come to appreciate it at the same time, or for the same reasons, it still remains the same. What is it pray tell? Just this: WE TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO TREAT US! ...

Paybacks are Hell, and Then Some!

One week ago yesterday my first grandchild was born. I swore I would not be a hovering grandmother, and that I would give his mom and dad time to bond with him unmolested. Well fast forward to today and I must confess it is killing me. I just want to...

I am Angry, Again!

Dear Parents, If you have more than one child, please please do not refer to your youngest as "the baby". When your child is still crying over every little thing at age 4, please do not tell me 'Well she is the last one". Say what? Will this be your...

My Huge Mistake...

I made a major parental blunder yesterday. Yes it is true, even I the parenting guru makes mistakes. Pray tell what did I do? Pull up a chair. It is complicated, but a mistake none the less. :/ Charlie Brown turned 22 yesterday, and the day before...

I am a Grammy!

Well it finally happened. At 9:37 p.m. last night I became a grammy. My son who turns 22 today is now a father. I think he is way too young for such a responsibility, but no one asked for my perfect opinion. We received a text yesterday morning at 4...

So It is True!

We are Finally Empty Nesters! I wanted to inform you all that it is TRUE that the children make all the mess in the house. Since the children moved out, we have used one towel, and our entire linen closet is overflowing with clean towels. Used to be...

Finally...

So today is the day. My son and his girlfriend/fiance blah blah move out. They have found a house, and he has saved up enough money to move. I am super excited for him, and for us. We have so much of their stuff sitting everywhere and I am so looking...

Responsibility..Get You Some...

It is no secret I own a daycare in my home. I have been in business for over 30 years, and very successful I might add. I think one of the reasons I am so successful is that I am caring, overly careful, and I know my stuff. That is right, I know all...

All this JoY, All this SoRRoW...ur

So its been a while. A long while in fact. So many things have happened that there is no way I can catch you up to date. No way! There is this though, I can tell you where I am today, and let you fill in the blanks with that active imagination you...

The Fake Christian Beside Me...

I have a HUGE problem with fake Christians..HUGE!  I have an aquaintance, I will not call her a friend, who squawks loudly about what a great Christian she is, then posts the most offensive material on fb.   She constantly puts up Bible verses...

Just Frustrating...

People exasperate me! They just do. Particularly the parents that I work with. When I take a child into the daycare, I always have an interview with the family. In this interview I lay out my philosophy, and my expectations, and I also lay out what...
