    Seven Hours Later...

    Leia, Liv, Liesl, and Jack had a GREAT time at our friends' pool party down the block yesterday. They went to bed completely exhausted last night, but so very happy!

    We are all diamonds in our own different ways.

    Make Them Think...

    The best thing you can do for your child is make them think on their own.
    You'd be surprised at how creative and logical their answers can be. 
    Ditch the spoon-feeding and allow them to grow.

    I love black. Even my workout clothes are black! Is that bad?

    Such a cute picture! I just love this!

    A wet blanket is never useful unless someone is on fire.
    Time to ditch the negative people who always try to pull me into their storms.
    I need more badasses in my life and less Debbie Downers.

    It took me years to demolish the walls that took me years to build. Never again.
    Demolition can be quite cathartic, but not without collateral damage. 
    I believe I have finally arrived.
    Is that even possible?

    Always Believe In Yourself...

    If you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.

    The Devilish Dali...

    I wonder what Picasso said about this.

    Let It Go...

    In with the good shit; out with the bullshit.

    The Ones Worth Keeping Around...

    Oh, yes. Sometimes it takes a long time to figure out who's worth keeping around
    and sometimes it's crystal clear from the very start.

    Front Row Seats...

    Life is too short to stop yourself from having fun. Be daring!

    Pool Time Finished...

    I came home from work yesterday to the sight of Liv and Leia passed out on the couch. This is what happens after they go swimming two days in a row. It wasn't even 3:30pm when I took this photo!

    What did our parents do before hand sanitizer was invented? Nothing.
    And guess what? Kids weren't sicker back then. I'm just sayin'.

    Happy Father's Day, Dad! I miss you.

    Full Strawberry Moon...

    I'll be watching the night sky tonight. Will you?

    My Jewels...

    Nothing compares to the arms of my children around my neck and the sound of
    their running feet as they greet me at the door each day I come home.

    OMG! This is totally something I would do! LOL!

    This is so very true and quite disgusting!
    I'm so thankful my kids don't ask for that crap!

    How true this is! Silence can be very powerful.
    Sometimes the best thing you can say has nothing to do with your voice.

    Thursday, June 05, 2014


    Oh, yes! At the end of the day, I am more than happy to
    whip it off and throw it across the room. LOL!
    It's like being freed from your straightjacket!

    I am humored by this because it is so accurately true!

    Looks Like Fun...

    Yes, I tried it. Yes, it works. 
    I had Liv try it, too.

    End of the Year Tired...

    Unless you're a teacher, you have absolutely no idea.
    Everybody picks on teachers because we get our summer off, but I don't know ANY other profession that packs in a year's worth of work in ten months. And even then, we STILL work in the summer; we just aren't paid for it.
    Yes, that's right. I do NOT earn a paycheck in the summer.
    So fuck everyone that thinks what we do is easy. We earn every penny, but deserve much more.
    Don't get me wrong; I love what I do.  I'm just ready for a break.  I have thirteen more work days left.
    And that is all I have to say about that. Carry on.

    The Way I See It...

    I couldn't have said it better myself, Temple.
