A morning in the life of a Wrinkled Mommy

Some blogs hurt my feelings. You know the ones. The ones that make you feel less than productive. Less than super organized. Less than a good decorator. Just less than whatever you feel like you SHOULD be doing. I saw a craft room re-do on a blog a few days ago. It was gorgeous. The …

Hey guess what?

Several things are going on around these parts. First, I am happy to tout myself and tell you I am featured today over on BonBon Break. My mind does crazy things when I’m stressed and the gals at BonBon Break liked my weird mind so that’s why I’m over there today. Speaking of BonBon Break, …

These are the best years of your life

“These are the best years of your life.” My parents often said that to me. I didn’t really understand it. How could I grasp the understanding of something I had nothing to compare it to? I had no idea what it would feel like when I was 20, 25, 30, or 40. Life was then, …

The Circle Of Life

(disclaimer – serious post) It’s hard to know what is going on behind the eyes of a child. Behind the mask of laughter, arguing with a sibling, or whining because they can’t find their shoe. It’s easy to think that’s all there is right now…this little immature human who only cares about whose turn it …

All Things Girl

It’s fun to have girls.(Not that boys aren’t fun too!) However, my boys wouldn’t enjoy a tea party and a pedicure, which is what my mother and I did with the girls this past Saturday. There is this little restaurant called The Peg House Tea Room. It is actually an old house made into a …

Weekly Wrap Up

I’m too tired to do my weekly letters today. (sorry mom) Speaking of my mom – we took the girls out for lunch at The Peg House Tea Room today, and then for a pedicure for Zoe. She is six, all girl, and loves fancy toes. I’ll have pictures later after I Photoshop some wrinkles …

What is it about cars??

The kids are crazy,yelling with excitement, and barreling through the house like “The running of the bulls”…only they are the bulls and I am the crazy person running ahead trying to get out of their way. And then when you think they can’t possibly get any louder or any more active, you head down the …

Recommended Product: A dress made just for me!

I have never had a dress made for me based on my measurements and mine alone! I’m a buy off the rack kind of girl. Sure, if I had bookoos of money I would probably go into a posh store once in a while and have a designer make a dress just for me. That …

Be cool – buy a pluot

And that makes no sense but you will understand that title in a minute. But first, I have some catching up to do. My oldest son recently had a birthday. That’s a lot of candles on that cake. Some of those candles were a special kind with flames that match the color of the candle. …

The Challenge Of Gift Hiding

This Saturday night we are letting the kids open birthday presents. We didn’t plan a big party this year but of course David and I will do something for them as a small celebration. As in, we celebrate all four kids’ birthday together since all actual birthdays are in June and July. It’s just easier …
