Why I Dislike Television

I really dislike my television! Really, I dislike it so much that I am actually considering getting rid of the family television.

All About Me

My sisters read US Magazine and when in STL I will take a peek. They have a column called “25 things you didn’t know about…” and it’s 25 facts about a movie or pop or television star.

Upcycled Flower Jars

So, let’s go ahead and give some thought to May Day, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day flowers. I of course enjoy a store bought bouquet of lovely flowers anyday (right, honey?) – but I am going to encourage you to create something of your own. I am a huge fan of upcycling glass jars.

Surviving the First Mixer

As I mentioned in last week’s blog, my sixth-grade son attended his first “co-ed” mixer and I had mixed emotions. I wanted him to attend the mixer so he could meet kids from other schools before he heads off to high school and to give him a little independence.

The First Mixer

We soon discovered that one of the schools in our area was holding a co-ed sixth-grade mixer and that all of the sixth-grade students from the surrounding schools were invited to attend.

Finding the Miracles of Life

When I finished gathering the information about my son’s stay in the NICU, I realized that I wanted to share our story with others. Although our story is the story of pain, frustration and heartache, it is also a story of love, hope, and faith. It is this love, hope and faith that I yearned to share with others. This is why I decided to write the book Miracle Child.

The Birthday Party Debate

My oldest son turns 12 in a couple of weeks and my wife is already planning his birthday party.

Being a Role Model

I was humbled a couple of weeks ago when my son handed me a hand-made invitation to a “Role Model” lunch program. Although I knew he was talking about role models at school, as part of the anti-bullying program that had been incorporated into the sixth-grade curriculum, I had no idea that he had selected me as his role model. When he handed me the invitation, I was humbled, but I also felt a sense of satisfaction in my parenting.

Balancing Work and Play (An Early Life Lesson)

When we got the phone call Monday evening announcing that school had been cancelled on Tuesday, my oldest son immediately started making plans for the snow day. He started talking about the snow fort he was going to build, planned a sledding trip to “Suicide Hill”, and debated which friends he was going to have over for a snow ball fight.
