How I Was a Better Parent Before I Had Kids

I was talking with my husband as we were driving home from a family event and I told him I was a better parent before I had kids. It was SO much easier back then! As I am a list maker, I made a list of how I was a better parent before I had kids

1. The house was ALWAYS clean before my husband came home from work. I made sure to clean up after myself and never left dishes in the sink.
2. I was VERY involved in my child's life and didn't need to take breaks. When I was pregnant with Ben, I even brought him to work with me. This was sometimes hard work, but I was very dedicated to rethinking and rearranging my priorities.
3. I established and set rules in the home, AND didn't break them. Things such as eating on the couch, peeing in the bed, finger prints on the wall, just didn't happen.
4. I never would allow naked-ness to go outside the house, and sometimes follow me down the street when I am getting the mail.

A Day at the Spa for Mother's Day!!

What a wonderful Day at the Casa de Cluff Spa I had today. My treatment began this morning, around 7 with a hydrotherapy treatment, courtesy of my dog licking my feet to get me out of bed. I really felt this helped to and remineralize my body first thing in the morning. I was then quickly blessed with a special aromotherpy session. Asaromatherapy is believed that the sense of smell is very powerful and directly connected to our brain, and therefore, to the hormonal activity in the body. Based on this logic, we can balance our hormones using essential oils (Though I am not sure if a poppy diaper counts). BUT I am sure that it hit all of those special requirements. Viola! I was refreshed and ready to start my day, I headed downstairs to…

Love Notes to My Husband

Gosh, my husband starts his last semester of school today and I am so sad he is gone. So I jotted down some love notes for my husband....

I love the way your socks look on the carpet but I think they’d rather be in the draw

Darling, you have a lot of hats for someone with only one head

Sometimes you are like aching feet, difficult to live with but even harder to live without

The four most important words in our marriage..."I'll do the dishes

Marriage is like jogging through a puddle of industrial strength rubber glue. You can work hard and make it through the struggles; however, you usually leave your bobby socks and sneakers behind along the way

Nobody will ever win the battle of the sexes.There's too much fraternizing with the enemy in our house.

Marrying you was like buying something I've been admiring for a long time in a shop window. You may love it when you get it home, but it doesn't always go with everything else in the house ;)

Love is the answer, but while we…
