Middle School is rough, don't be

Middle School is rough, don't be "THAT" girl....I was her!

Posted Apr 17th, 2019 in Family

We all remember "that" girl or "that" boy. You know what I am talking about. You remember the ones who left the lasting impressions. OMG! Guess what mine was? My mom had me cut my hair real short. I was awkward the way it was, I had glasses and back then glasses were not cool like they are today. "D.A." they nicknamed me. Short for "Ducks Ass."

Mom, Tell me!" Silently I am saying to myself, can you just stop talking please. STOP. Just STOP! For the love of god and everything that is holy, PLEASE STOP!

Lose weight eating pizza everyday! Would I lie to you?

Posted Apr 10th, 2019 in Family

Hey Mama! I love pizza! I mean I LOVE PIZZA. Good pizza. Not fast food delivery pizza or frozen pizza. My hubs and kids love pizza. But what I really love is the cheese and the sauce. Ok, maybe just the cheese. I figured out a way to have cheese almost daily. I gave up meat but there is no way in hell I can ever give up Mozzarella, Ricotta or Burrata! Not happening!

Verbalizing Feelings....you, you right there mama, read this SHIZ!

Verbalizing Feelings....you, you right there mama, read this SHIZ!

Posted Apr 8th, 2019 in Family

Picture it...  You have something to share that means a lot to you, something you feel is important and the response you get is immediate and dismissive. You then shut down.  You know if you respond it can get ugly. You were never taught the skills to have an adult, mature conversation. You cave. You hate yourself for doing it! The cycle never ends.

"Mom, I am not smart, I don't have Anthony's brain. I can't do it!

Posted Mar 27th, 2019 in Family

First of all, when I hear one of my monsters say , "I can't do it," I want to physically shake the hell out of them. This was instilled in me when I was child and if you ask my father the story he will tell you over and over again how he yelled at me when I was a Diamond Ski Slope and crying I couldn't go down the mountain and he about lost it! (Mind you, I was around 4 years old.

"What you need to know when your daughter gets her period."

Posted Mar 24th, 2019 in Family

Everything I need to know I learned in Kindergarten. BULL! Lies, it's all lies! No one tells you the ugly stuff. No one warns you about hormonal tweens. No one tells you that the Exorcist enters your house and on any given day her head may or may not spin around.
