Grandma’s Day Out at the Movies

On a recent Saturday morning, John was golfing, and I was not. The grandkids were busy, and I was not. I was bored and went through the different options I had. After some consideration, I decided to walk to the neighborhood theater and take in a movie.

What We’ve Learned Together This Year

This marks the last week of our oldest daughter’s freshman year. While at a graduation ceremony this past Saturday, I couldn’t help but think…in three short years, she will be walking across the stage receiving her diploma.

Thank Goodness Kindergarten Is Over

I hate to say it, but thank goodness kindergarten is over! This year has been rough to say the least. As I have mentioned before, Cohen has always been my good kid. He is caring, respectful and super helpful. But this year, something changed—and not for the better.

Are We Done Having Kids?

Growing up everyone always asked you, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” My answer: I wanted to be a mom. Sure, I went to college, graduated and got a full-time job, but I knew I was put on this earth to become a mom.

Words of Grandparent Wisdom

Sleepover at Grandma & Grandpa’s House

As our grandkids have gotten older, there have been fewer and fewer times we’ve had the pleasure of hosting overnight stays.

Babies & Toddlers

In addition to the time I devote to being a mom, I also work full-time outside the home, which means my day is hardly ever as simple as nine to five. With an all-too-established schedule, as soon as I walk through the door, my day doesn’t end, but rather just begins. It’s a balancing act, especially with two children, but being a mom is one full-time job that I never want to quit!

K-12 & Teens

My husband and I have three kids. Our oldest is a freshman in high school, and our youngest is in second grade. Like most families, our calendar is color-coded with practices, games, school activities and concerts, and I cannot forget to add monthly professional meetings. Yet all of these bring me such joy. My heart is full watching our kids do what they love.

Grandkids & Grandparents

I have four grandchildren ages 14-17. In some ways, I’m a very typical grandma, always proud of everything the kids do and wanting to help support them in whatever way I can. In other ways, I’m not very typical. My goal as a blogger is to share my thoughts and experiences that I think are funny and meaningful as I adventure through grandmahood.
