An Ordinary LIfe...

This past weekend was my one year anniversary on Thoughts.com. I'd like to say that it has changed my life forever and I am a different person, the truth is, I am the same old me. I will admit that I have learned a lot about the cross of humanity...

The Princess and The Pea....

In my daycare I have appoximately 300 children's books. The children randomly bring books to me for me to read to them individually. Usually, I will start a book with one child and a group will gather around us. In addition to our daily group reading...

The Dream...

I just woke up from another dream about my mother. To me, dreams are so realistic and sometimes so calming. This dream of course had no truth to it. Like a really good story where the names and dates were changed to protect the innocent, the places and...

Sleeping with the Enemy.....

This morning I wanted to  tell you about my and R.J.'s last dispute. Mind you it was not a major dispute, but one we seem to repeat over and over. At some point I expect this issue to come up and instead of the hours long heated discussions we have...

The Gift You Are...

Noone tells you when you have children how your heart will stretch and grow and take up enough space in your body, that all of your other organs go on strike to make your heart...get out of the way already.  Noone tells you how you will hold your...

The RUT .....

Some time ago, I realized I was in a RUT, a life rut that is. Slowly but surely everyday of my life I walk in a circle and that slow methodical walk, has created a rut. Some days the sun is at my back and it warms my way. On these days, life is...

How Dyslexia Affects My Son...

The other day, I mentioned that my son Charlie Brown has dyslexia. He is an extremely intelligent young man, who has learned to learn in a way that is all his own. It has been a struggle for him, and heart rendering for me, to learn how to read with...

The Instinct to Nurture...

Yesterday in the daycare I snapped a picture of sweet little M reading to a tiny little bear. She had the bear sitting in this really tall doll house chair. The bear was less than an inch tall and she had this blanket covering him up that was long...

I'll Just KISS My Washing Machine..Thank You!!

Yesterday A's mom came running into the daycare with her digital camera, very excited. "Look" she said and held out the camera. Now keep in mind A's mom just turned 21 and is just a sweetie, she shows me a picture of a washer and dryer, front loading...

Hump Day Anyone??

Today is Wednesday, no doubt and it is pouring down rain. The children are so hyped up and hopping and bopping everywhere. I do wish I could bottle their energy and drink it every morning as soon as my feet hit the floor. It amazes me the energy they...

Forgive Me Whilst I BRAG......WOW!!!!

If you are a parent, then one of your important jobs is attending parent-teacher conferences with your child's teacher(s). I have had a child in school now since 1993 and I promise you, I have never missed a parent-teacher conference. Why? you might...

Taxes and FAFSA.....YuCk!!!

So, I visited my nice Tax Lady Saturday and we discussed our year since we have seen each other. Funny thing is, we live in the same town, and I never see her anywhere, save her office at tax time. Anyway, taxes were completed and we did okay. We made...

TAX DAY....YiKeS..

Today is Tax Day for me. I have an appointment at 4 to see my friend P to have my taxes done. Woot!! I met P when I was 18 and working in a Child Care center in our home town. She was single with a beautiful boy named Josh. She was dating another...

What a Day!! Party Over..Woot!

So, today was one of ThoSe DaYs, a yucky one. First of all each child came into the daycare all hopped up on: It's Valentine's Day Party Day...yep, they did. YUCK!  Secondly due to my sore throat/allergy problem this week, I was behind on the sweet...

Happy Valentines Day Eve!! :D

It's Friday already and this week flew by fast. Today is the day before Valentine's Day and in my world this is a huge cut and gluefest day. The children will make Valentine's bags to put their little valentines in and to drop their little candies in...

I Feel Yucky!!!

So, I went to bed late last night and had difficulty falling asleep. About 3:30, I woke up with the worst sore throat and both ears hurting. It is probably just allergies, but this very second I feel yuck. What I'd really like to do is climb in the bed...

We all STAND ToGether.....YEP!

Whilst browsing through youtube tonight I found this old video from way back when. It is a song about Love and Family and Making it through tough times. The song is by Paul Mc Cartney and the cartoon is Rupert and the Frog Song. This song is...

48 RANDOM THINGS:

48 RANDOM THINGS: 1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?  I was named after my mother's only sister (first name) and also her very best friend who sadly passed away from bone cancer the month I was born (second name). 2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME...

So..I'll Give You a POPSICLE...

Today, I thought I would spend a little time talking about the joys of working with children. My daycare is in full swing and somedays are just delightful, peppered with a side of "HOW SWEET".  Some days I think I might hang the children up on the art...

A New Kind of Normal...

Did you ever notice how the weekends seem to fly by...while the work week seems to drag on and on. This past weekend was no exception...it flew by..yep!  Saturday was a quiet, restful kind of day. C.B. was out in his Outlander making the rounds, and I...

The Trouble With Words...

I have always known that words are our most important tools. With the coming of texting, chatting and e-mails, words have taken on a whole new meaning. The trouble with these forms of communication is tone and a sense of how the person is feeling, when...

What a Day...

So folks, it is Friday and what a day it has been. We went to the car dealership and purchased the Outlander for C.B.  I had one of the parents who is a substitute teacher, come and sub for me while the children slept. All went well and the purchase...

Friday Finally....

Last night was a busy night for me. I took C.B. to drive the Outlander one more time with R.J.  The dealer had the front end aligned and that took care of the shimmy, woot! So today at 12 noon, we will go purchase this vehicle for our son, it has...

Praying Out Loud...

It has been a busy week in our home, and now we have come to Thursday. R.J. has been busy as a little bee swooping around cleaning, running errands and getting in my face. It is a funny thing, the energy level of a man who is used to working all day....
