    Donut Tradition

    One morning, a long time ago, I drove with the midnight dew still clinging to my front windshield, on my way to buy a bag of chocolate sprinkled donuts. After all, it was his big day. Nate was starting Kindergarten so I treated him that morning with one of his favorites.   The Chocolate Sprinkled Doughnut.  There is something special about eating sprinkles for breakfast as a kid.   It makes one feel like they’re getting away with something that is normally considered to naughty to eat for such an important meal. As each year has passed, on the first day of school, I wake up with the roosters, drive to…

    Serenity Prayer

    Remembering The Serenity Prayer God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will; that I may be reasonable happy in this life and supremely happy with Him, forever in the next. Amen

    A Weighty Issue

    It’s no surprise that when a woman becomes pregnant six weeks after she had just given birth to her second child; she would gain weight.  Not only would she gain weight, but she wouldn’t work out for nearly two years.  Not working out for two years and stuffing your face with all sorts of pregnant induced cravings, and then giving birth for a third time…let’s just say that her body would not be in the same shape. If you’re guessing who this woman is; it’s me.  Good ole, Liz.  I kept telling myself: I’ll lose it.  I did on my first one.  It won’t take long.  HAHAHA!  I wish I…

    Smell Blind

     Any of you ever watched the movie, Walk Hard: Dewey Cox Story?  There is a scene in the beginning where Dewey Cox goes smell blind as a kid.  I couldn’t find that scene which would have been PERFECT for this post, but this clip is a close second.  It will make more sense toward the end when he is smelling poop. Video Source: mojo69monkey @ youtube I don’t know how or why it happened, but as a youngster, I went smell blind.  ::True story::  I can’t smell much.  I can’t even smell poopy diapers. In fact, I’m so smell blind, that I am the butt of many jokes in my…

    Having A Child With Multiple Food Allergies

    My middle son, Scout, has multiple food allergies.  We found this out last week…sort of.  It’s a long story really, and I’ve failed to really explain most of it to others.  I’m not just writing this post for the friends and family that are close to me, but I’m writing it for other parents who are just discovering their children may have a food allergy and suddenly they realize that they have to think three steps ahead at all times. I guess I should tell you what he is allergic to:  Milk, Eggs, Nuts, & Dogs    What does that mean for us and him?  A lot.  But I won’t…
