- In (Not So) Perfect Balance
- Our life is full of wonderful, chaotic, blessed, hysterical, insane, magical, sad, scary, sweet, mind boggling, moments. While balancing life with 3 cherubs, parents, sisters, BIL, In-laws, 1 teaching career, and many good friends; I find that our life is moving far toooo fast. It is important to cherish and record the moments as we consistently try to balance our scale (God forbid I make a photo album)! MB

Waste Not Want Not
A weird world. We buy our kids new backpacks every year. I tried to offer my kids money to put in the bank instead of spending it on new backpacks. Not biting.
After going to four stores with three kids to find a darth vadar backpack I give up. I am spending more on gas and whatnots that we end up buying. So...online I bought cherub's 2 & 3 backpacks today. Why didn't I think of that a month ago (to save me the shipping?)
We are going to start some serious money lessons this year. New backpacks every year? I mind as well throw my money away.
