Wedding Fun – Mommy Memos
We had another fun Montana weekend, this time at a wedding.  It was kind of nice to be in a cabin with just the five of us.
I had one of those proud mom weekends.  Several people came up to me and said how well behaved my kids are, which is the nicest thing you can say to me...
Trying New Things – Mommy Memos
My oldest, Emma, is a great kid.  She has a heart of gold and is fun, kind, and compassionate.  She is also the kid who wants to try every sport...usually just until she gets the uniform, and then wants to quit.
What I am finding, is that she doesn't want to compete in any sports that …
Who’s The Boss – Mommy Memos
There's always one parent who is the "alpha," and I think we found out who it is in our house last night...and it's not much of a surprise.
I was upstairs getting ready for bed, and my husband Mike was downstairs trying, unsuccessfully, to get the kids to pick up, turn off…
The Joys Of Pregnancy – Mommy Memos
Our receptionist, and all around hard worker, Kelly, is VERY pregnant with her third child.  She was expecting to have given birth by now, and as all you Moms know, the end of pregnancy is 'slightly' uncomfortable.
She's been an awfully good sport with the 'you haven't h…
Taking The Week Off – Mommy Memos
My kids are at a day camp this week.  Monday through Thursday, from 10 to 4:30.  I have never done anything like this before.  I LOVE IT!
I have never had help during the day, and have always had at least one kid at home.  Babysitters are impossible to find during the day, and I j…
Mother-Daughter Fishing Date – Mommy Memos
I have three great kids.  Bear with me, I am going to brag a bit.  My middle girl, Gracie, and youngest boy, Matthew get a lot of attention from people.  They are sassy and funny and just naturally attract attention.
My oldest, Emma, is my rock...
Kids – Mommy Memos
I love spending time with my kids.  I think they are funny and smart and wonderful (proud Mama).  That being said, I have had a bit of a challenging week   Yes, I know it's only Tuesday.  My oldest, Emma, washed a load of clothes in bleach...
Hard Day – Mommy Memos
This is a tough one for me.  My sweet little Gracie cried herself to sleep last night.  She hasn't wanted to go to school, and won't tell anyone why.  I put her in my bed last night and we talked.  I finally got her to open up, and she said no one wants to play with her…
Watch And Learn – Mommy Memos
It turned out to be a beautiful day yesterday, so I picked my baby Matthew (age 3) up from pre-school and took him to the driving range.  We have a set of kids' golf clubs, and he was very excited!
It was his first time on the golf course, so I got him lined up correctly, showed him how to …
Mother’s Day – Mommy Memos
I have alot of pictures and lots to tell you about Jamaica and Beaches Resort, but my husband hasn't downloaded the pictures for me yet.  Yes, I am nagging him about it!  I will tell you this, I have never been so happy to see those three little faces as I was when I got home...
Five Bucks! – Mommy Memos
I have had sick kids for about a week now, and the house has been a disaster.  Today, I told the kids that if they cleaned their room, they could be done.
As I was cleaning, I noticed their door was closed (the girls share a room).  I walked in and Emma was cleaning up and Gracie was sittin…
