Does a Teen Need a Birthday Party??

February 10, 2010
By

Movies theaters cost an arm and a leg. My teen did not want a birthday party this year. I am very relieved. I offered to host a party for her. We talked about a few ideas. Our top three: A sleepover for a large group. A movie outing with a small group. Something else....

And Theeeeeyyyyy’rrrreeee Back!

January 19, 2010

The Musings from Me family is now under one rooof. The Lancaster crew got back in last night. The teen and I had a leisurely night and day of peace and quiet before the Richmond group came running in to the house. The house went from “you could hear a pin drop” to “Ow, Ow, my...

#Volleyball

January 18, 2010
By

Another weekend, another volleyball match. This weekend the teen didn’t just practice she played and played and played game after game. Infact the preteen played as well. How nice to have two kids playing volleyball on the same weekend. Only one small teeny tiny insignificant problem. The girls played in two different states. Neither...

Why I Am Not Going to Disney Social Media Moms Conference

It seemed so straightforward. The 5 of us would head to Disney for the Disney Social Media Moms Conference February 10-13. I would do the conference while Coach Dad took the kid, the preteen, and the teen around the parks. We would meet up at the events put on especially for families. I was looking...

Sick Teen or Not

My teen complained yesterday about feeling sniffly. I was not really listening to her. Actually, I couldn’t help but listen to her whiny voice, but we had a fun family day planned so I was preoccupied. We were going to brunch at IHOP (thanks to a gift card from @KidsMealDeals), a showing of Where the...

Putting the Positive Back in Sports

July 7, 2009
By

As a mom of three sporty kids, I am constantly driving from soccer to volleyball to swimming and back to volleyball with a pitstop at soccer. Well, you get the idea. My kids play lots of sports. To my husband and I, it makes sense. Coach Dad was unable to play sports in high school...

This Post Was Brought to You by…

June 22, 2009
By

I was looking at the last 7 or so posts. I’m a little horrified to see that all of the posts are giveaways or product reviews. Nothing against giveaways and reviews…it is just that I have lost the blogging about me/Musings from Me mojo. My excuse…end-of-the-school year shenanigans, end-of-season mayhem, beginning of summer swim...

Reading Is Queen

Reading Is Queen

Reading is king in our house, or queen — I’m English, my husband is American, though. In England we are all about the Royals even if some of us disagree with the amount of money they get from the state. When my oldest was a tiny newborn I was alone with her from about Day...

Swim Team Teen Style

Swim Team Teen Style

My teen has been on the swim team since a teeny tiny 2nd grader. She wore almost the same size swim suit as her 5-year-old sister. Then and now she is skin and bones. Hates cold water. The swimming pool on an afterschool afternoon in May swim practice is not her idea of fun....

The Sleepy Teen

June 9, 2009
By

I’ve got a kid who needs lots of sleep as he is up at the crack of dawn. A preteen who needs slightly less sleep, but is still up with the dawn chorus. And a teen who is taking after her Mommy with her capacity to sleep the sleep of the dead. Serious sawing...
