Grand Military Parade is Grand Waste of Money

Grand Military Parade is Grand Waste of Money

Now President Trump wants a “grand military parade” to showcase the “might of American’s armed forces”. Ugh. Let me give you a few points about my political opinions first: I am always anti-war. This doesn’t mean I don’t understand that the way our world works and that wars will continue to happen, big and small. But my take is always peace, love and diplomacy first. I am not anti-military personnel. … Continue Reading →
Graco Buyer Beware – Click Connect and Classic Connect

Graco Buyer Beware – Click Connect and Classic Connect

A quick cautionary tale if you are planning on buying a Graco stroller and car seats for yourself or as a gift for someone. Graco has one collection of seats and strollers called “Classic Connect” and another called “Click Connect”. These are not interchangeable. I’m not sure why they would name the lines so similar though. Unless you are really familiar with the Graco products you probably would just remember … Continue Reading →
Yes, I am here still!

Yes, I am here still!

Yikes! It has been over a week since I have posted anything here on the blog. I’m so sorry. I promise, I am here still. Life has just been a bit crazy though. Everyday I say I am setting aside this amount of time to blog and then something happens and I don’t do it. Ugh. I used to be able to stay up late to work, but now, with … Continue Reading →
The Courts Make Non-Criminals Feel Like Victims

The Courts Make Non-Criminals Feel Like Victims

Okay, another rant today. This is again about all my son’s stuff that is happening, but from a different angle. First, my son has done all the things they have said he has done (to the best of my knowledge) and it is his fault for getting in trouble. I am not blaming the courts and criminal system for his own actual actions. I do also understand that ultimately it is … Continue Reading →
Sadness on Mother’s Day – What’s Happening in My Life

Sadness on Mother’s Day – What’s Happening in My Life

So today is going to be a bit of a rant and an emptying of many thoughts in my head about what is happening in my family lately. I’m just warning you ahead of time. Another warning is that this is *MY* story. Yes, it involves my family, especially my son, but even so these are things happening to me that I need to get out and I want to … Continue Reading →
No Pajamas in Public Please

No Pajamas in Public Please

UPDATE: Well DUH on me! I just realized that the sign I made above sounds like I’m saying if people are NOT wearing pajamas they cannot get service. That’s not what I meant LOL. The other day I posted on my Facebook wall about the need to add “no pajamas” to those no shirt, no shoes, no service signs. Apparently I am not alone in this feeling. I may have … Continue Reading →
No Disturbing Videos During the Cheerios Hour Please

No Disturbing Videos During the Cheerios Hour Please

I have a rant inside me that just needs to get out. Everyone has different opinions and I am happy to have you share yours in the comments as long as you are respectful in doing so to others. So, every morning during the week I watch the Today Show. I am a fan of the show, have watched it for years, and will continue to do so. That does … Continue Reading →
Why Herman Cain Is Like a Mom Blogger

Why Herman Cain Is Like a Mom Blogger

Let me preface this by saying I am not a Republican – I am (as my regular readers know) a pretty liberal minded person. However, paying attention to all the people vying for the presidency I feel is important to all citizens. Also, this comparison has nothing to do with the types of accusations made against him as a womanizer. This afternoon I watched the press event where Herman Cain … Continue Reading →
This is ABUSE not discipline

This is ABUSE not discipline

This story has been in the news today and it just is so upsetting. I’m sharing the video so you all can judge for yourself. The girl is now 23 and released this video that she secretly recorded when she was 16 years old of her being beaten by her father, who is a JUDGE in Texas and presides over cases involving children. The gist of this was that she … Continue Reading →
Really?

Really?

  I watch Toddlers & Tiaras with my jaw hanging open most of them time at how outrageous these parents are. Yes, I know some of the kids act horribly, but honestly it is because of the parents at that young age. Last night though I was SHOCKED to see that a family had dressed up their little girl as a PROSTITUTE! Really?!? Yep, outfit of choice category they put … Continue Reading →
