La La Land Mommy: Why I Decided Not To Buy Sweets On My Last Grocery Trip

Last Sunday I went on my normal grocery shopping trip. I made my usual rounds. I stopped at the produce area of the store. I was looking over the fruit and vegetables. I always grab whatever fruit and vegetables are on sale. Then I buy my kids a box of oatmeal pies. They are very close to each other. I headed to that area and looked at the box then I looked over my shoulder and noticed that they had some apples on sale. I had to make a decision.

La La Land Mommy: 5 Ways Music Changed Tyler

About a few days after school started my son Tyler came home with the biggest smile on his face and announced to me that he had joined the band at his school. Now I have to admit that at first I didn’t have the best reaction. I was more focused on the fact that he didn’t ask permission. Then he explained how the band teacher came into his class, explained what band was all about, and then asked who was interested in joining. Once he raised his hand his teacher changed his schedule and he was in band. Continue reading

My daughter and I share the month of April for our birthdays. This makes the month of April so much fun. In fact the month of April is pretty busy for us.
