All Good Things Must Come to an End

Today marks the end of what has been an incredible week spent with my baby brother. As I mentioned in an earlier post,  his visit was a surprise Christmas present for my parents. He lives in Dallas, TX and had told my parents that he wasn’t going to be able to make it home from Christmas. [...]

Identity Crisis

I need help…. with WordPress.  In June of last year I created a WordPress.com blog for a soapbox race that I was promoting – www.Hopeboxderby.com.  Later in the year I moved my personal blog from blogger to WordPress.org. For some reason the Hopebox Derby avatar shows up everytime I post as Mommy Bits to another WordPress blog: I’ve tried [...]

Letting Go…

It’s no secret that I am a little anal retentive when it comes to keeping things tidy around the house.  Today in the spirit of the season, I am letting go (you have no idea how hard it is for me…) and letting the boys have free reign over the living room.  Seeing how much [...]

Tis The Season….

This morning we headed downtown to see Santa at Macy’s.  The boys had been eager to share their lists with him.  This was our first year visiting Santa downtown and I have to say I really liked it. Rather than charge you a zillion dollars for a photo, at Macy’s you take your own photo [...]

It’s not always fun being the grown up

Tonight I had one of those parenting moments where you make the right decision for your child, but you still feel bad about it. After work I’d had a client happy hour so I was out later than normal. I ended up getting home around 8:00p.m., just in time to play with the boys for [...]

CPSC Recalls Toy Dinosaurs for Lead Paint

As I’ve mentioned before, I am on the toy recall email list for the Consumer Products Safety Commission. This evening I got an alert about a recall for toy dinosaurs, something I am VERY familiar with as I am sure many parents with boys are (not that girls don’t like them too….). The dinosaurs have [...]
