15 Books Your High Schooler Should Read Before Graduating

I have a high schooler (cry, weep, pout!) who is going into 11th grade this upcoming school year! I'm absolutely amazed at the lack of required reading anymore. I talked a couple weeks ago about how summer is creeping up on us and low and behold, summer vacation is officially here. At least for our school district. I think I've already gained at least 30 new gray hairs in the past 2 weeks. My kids are at each other's throats and I'm resisting...

15 Books for Your Middle Schooler to Read this Summer

Summer is creeping up on us parents. Go ahead, scream, you know you want to! I've already started a countdown calendar for when they go back to school. I love my kids… I do! I love my sanity just slightly more. Okay, possibly a whole lot more. Every year we set out to have the boys pick out so many books to read and they have to write at least one essay on the book. Every single year, I (yes me) drop the ball and forget about the essay....

So I have tried to be more like my mother, but it's hard. Especially when you've stressed to your children how...

The First Mother’s Day Without My Mom

The First Mother’s Day Without My Mom

Up until a few years ago, my mom and I had a love/dislike relationship. She loved me and I disliked her way of thinking so I stopped talking to her many times. We had a huge blow out the night before my husband and I got married and even though she was at my wedding, I avoided her a bit. She really pissed me off about changing things at my wedding for decorations after we had discussed and agreed on things. It was more than just the...
