My sweet little Super Boy is growing up so fast, it's making my head spin. He's 7-1/2 years old, and it happened in the blink of an eye, I swear. Being pregnant again is bringing back all sorts of forgotten memories of Super Boy when he was a baby, and a toddler, and a preschooler … Continue reading he’s growing up!
My beloved little Super Boy started second grade yesterday. :)He was excited, and a little nervous. He confided to me when I woke him up in the morning that he REALLY wanted JUST ONE MORE DAY of summer. I told him he'd get it on Labor Day. He was so cute, getting his carefully selected … Continue reading back to school
Today is a pretty significant day for our family. Well, I suppose I ought to include yesterday in this, as well. Let's say it was a pretty significant TWO days for our family. First off, yesterday: Super Girl graduated from 8th grade! Yes, folks. This means we have a high schooler on our hands. Lord … Continue reading a big day
I'm starting to feel like a broken record apologizing for not writing lately. I'm usually not a terribly busy person, but lately I've just had a ton going on!Just got off spring break. We went and spent one day at a waterpark hotel in Wisconsin Dells, and that was fun. Super Boy had never been … Continue reading so much to do, so little time

For the past two summers, I've struggled with the start of the new school year. One part of me is terribly excited for Super Boy to embark on another fun adventure of learning, apart from me and life at home, where he's becoming his own person. He loves school, loves his classmates, has a passion … Continue reading mixed emotions
I'm talking about Super Boy here. My little man is "Super Star of the Week" in his class this week, and he couldn't be more excited about it if it came with a lifetime supply of Hubba Bubba and every Lego Bionicle character ever made. Well, I take that back. He probably would be more … Continue reading You’re a Super Star, That’s What You Are…
This week happens to be Teacher Appreciation Week at Super Boy's school and, I've gotta say, I think our PTO does a really nice job of recognizing the hard-working, caring and dedicated teachers and staff. Super Boy has only been at the school for two years, and I've found this special week to be a … Continue reading Kudos to Teachers!!
Sweet Jesus...You will not believe what I did today. It's only, what - the second day of school? - and already I've proven myself to Super Boy, his teacher - and his principal - to be the world's worst mother. Today is Wednesday. And Wednesday is now "early release day" in our school district, for … Continue reading Officially the World’s Worst Mother…
