Finding The Girl I Used To Be! - Sky's The Limit

One day while I was sitting on the beach watching a group of girls frolicking in the ocean, a sadness engulfed me. It wasn't a feeling of sadness that would catapult me into a depression, but one where it felt like I needed a HUGE hug.

The girls were laughing and standing on each other's shoulders and doing back flips. This is what I used to do. By doing these flips, the girls had no idea what the outcome would be.  If they would receive the perfect score or hit the water with their face. There were many times where I would taste salt water for days.

The Higher The Ponytail - The Better The Day!

So all of us Moms can relate to this one definite thing - there will ABSOLUTELY be days filled with chaos and wanting to pull out your hair.  You will wake up with a knot in your stomach and think you can't get through another day.

You will wake up to a sink probably filled with dishes from the night before.  Too tired at the end of the day to load the dishwasher.  Let's be honest, the thought of housework after you have tucked the kids into bed (if they even go to bed) is not a turn - on.  You will avoid that dreaded sink at all costs.

5 Things You Learn From A Kid-Free Vacation!

So my husband and I went away for "Spring Break" to Punta Cana.  This is the first trip we have gone on in quite some time without the kids!  The last time I was away for "Spring Break", I unexpectedly entered a wet t-shirt contest.  Yes, that long ago.

I have absolute no recollection of that event and I don't even know if I placed or not.  To this day, my girlfriends tell me they swore till the day they die, they would not tell me what transpired.  Does not sound good, right?  LOL.

My Christmas Gifts To My Husband!

So with the holidays coming, my friends are scrambling to buy their husbands presents.  I watch the anxiety all over their faces and I just sit back and watch.

First off, my thought is, they buy what they need all year round.  And you really have the kids to focus on.  I am not a good multi-tasker and can only handle a few jobs at a time.

Open Letter To Parents Of Special Needs Kids

Dear parents with special needs kids,

I hope this letter will not offend anyone.  I have 2 boys - 22 & 19- and my oldest boy, Casey, is on the spectrum.  At this point in my life, I feel like I could pass on some knowledge.

The reason is very important - I survived and did not break!  It was definitely a roller coaster, which I so love, with ups and downs and turns you never expected!
