The Son is always shining, regardless of the weather

My Son Has Skills!

Posted under LOL, My Kids Make Me Smile, The Unexpected - Aug 14th, 09 - 2 Comments

The following is a conversation that my 6-year-old child (talented son) had with me (amazed mom) this morning: Talented Son: “Mom, do you know what I am really good at?” Amazed Mom: (turned to face son) “What?” Talented Son: “Well, I am really good at picking things up with my feet,” (He gave an honest […]

“I Lost Over Half of My Blood Volume…Normally, That’s Fatal!”

Last night on an episode of “Shark Week” (NetFlix), I heard the following quote: “I lost over half of my blood volume…normally, that’s fatal! I shouldn’t be alive!” The slightly insane man that said this, was attacked by a bull shark while trying to show the world that bull sharks “normally” won’t bite you. This […]

Another birthday…

They say you shouldn’t run from your problems, but face them. Lately, I have been running for my problem (the problem being…I’m out of shape), and I am really feeling better…maybe even younger. I was thrilled to get new running shoes for my b-day. BC and I went to my 20th high school reunion a […]

Boys Crying “Wolf”!

The other day, my six-year-old son purposely tried to scare me. He let a red Skittle melt on his finger, and came running to me like he hurt himself. I fell for it. He quickly told me he was kidding. However, the boys have started “playing wolf”, just to see my face! Now, I am […]

My Mind is Running With Thoughts on Running!

As I approach my 20th high school reunion (and 38th B-day), I have felt the need to run (fight or flight, huh?) . So for twenty dollars a month (our first time to join a gym—ever), BC and I rundrive over to the gym and get on the treadmill. We only go there together, and […]

I Am a Fan of Chic-fil-A!

What is black and white and red all over? Our embarrassed family walking into Chick-fil-A dressed like cows! Yesterday, we made total cows of ourselves (in more ways than one)! It was National Cow Appreciation Day at Chic-fil-A, and so we dressed the part and had a moo-valous time! We were supposed to dress “head […]

Grace’s Fall Revisited—5 Years Later-Happy 12th!

Where did I miss (in my extensive reading of parenting books) that 7-year-old children are prone to gash their legs on glass aquariums? Please, if you are a parent, be sure to warn your kids not to tip over your aquarium (used for terrarium, or “home for outdoor Roly-Polies and lizards”), and especially…NOT to stomp […]

Boys Are Different…

Boys are different… I remember talking with a friend who had boys, when I had my first son, and telling her, “So far so good. I don’t seem to see too many differences between them.” Then at about nine or ten months, I called her and said, “I am starting to see their differences. He […]

Blown Away at Relay 2009

Highlights from this year’s Relay For Life… I was blown away by the money we raised…$70,000. Is that awesome or what? Even in a tough economic year, we surpassed our goal of $50,000. Also, this year we became a “Five-Star Relay”! Our chair and co-chair did an excellent job. Everyone on the committee did everything […]

My Dad Makes Me Laugh!

Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday! In honor of this wonderful man and awesome dad, I have to blog about a funny story that happened awhile back. The story I’m about to tell you has made me laugh so much over the years (and anyone who knows me, knows that I love to laugh). Okay, let’s […]
