Red, White and Blue and what it means to me

As a naturalized citizen, I have the best of both worlds. I get to enjoy all of the liberties being an American affords and being born outside of this country, I have an acute awareness of how important they are. I don’t take any of the rights that I have for granted. At times when … Continue reading

New year, new attitude.

How to save a life!

Admit it. Your mind went straight to the song by The Fray. And then your mind went to Grey’s Anatomy. I digress. On to the business at hand. I spent 4 hours last week learning adult and child CPR. I have to say it was the best 4 hours I have spent in a very … Continue reading

My twins love to party

The family and I attended a fun party this weekend. And the kids, especially the girls, had a ball. It has been a couple of months since they attended a party as I tend to take my son alone without them. It just works out better. He has a better time and I am not … Continue reading

I am very disappointed at the comments made about Gabby Douglas’ hair. But I have to admit I am not very surprised. I am not sure about the extent of it, but it has made national news which is embarrassing. My children rarely have people who look like them achieve so much on such a … Continue reading

My quest for the perfect breakfast is over.

For me finding something that met all my criteria for a great breakfast (filling, convenient, tasty) was always a struggle.  I have the 3 kids plus I work so I don’t really have time to play around with a big fancy breakfast. Bars and frozen items work but they always left me feeling hungry and … Continue reading

Twin names are twice as hard!

Oh yay! The 2011 Security list of popular baby names is out. I have a thing for names. I think they mean a lot. I admit that I get a little picture in my head of people when I hear their names. So you can image when it came to naming my three children, it was a very … Continue reading

Hello world!

Hello world. Allow me to introduce myself. I am full-time working mom with 3 lovely kids and an adorable husband.  Full disclosure…I am tired. Always extremely tired. After taking care of everyone else, I often struggle to find the time for the things I really love to do or would love to try. This is … Continue reading

This is me!

Twenty fingers, Twenty toes
Plenty of work, heaven knows!
Four little arms to hold tight.
Four little cheeks to kiss at night.
