What Are You Hiding Behind Your Mask?

Teens By Tags: , , , , 4 Comments

It’s been a long while since I participated in BlogHer‘s NaBloPoMo – 5 months to be exact. But, this month’s “Mask” theme caught my eye and I figured that I would end the year the way I started it… by committing to writing here every day.

…they’re really just suggestions! Monday’s after school consists of Songsters for Sydney and tutoring for Cassie. Bell rings at 2:45 to let them out, so we’re there to pick up Cassie, shuttle her to the tutor and then back to the school to get Sydney by 3:30.

Lifestyle By Tags: , , , , , 12 Comments

We’ll always be best friends. You know too much about me. Ahhh… there is so much truth in that cute little statement. Your besties were there long before the man was and definitely before the kids were there interrupting your phone conversations. So of course they’re the ones you reach out to when you’ve got good news to share, bad news to…

Teens By Tags: , , , , , , , 6 Comments

Okay, maybe they’re not quite love notes but still… I love finding the little random notes that my girls leave around the house. Some are meant to be found, others not so much.
