I started this blog as a place to put the "mommy stuff" that just doesn't fit over on my other blog.

I became a first time mom at the age of 43 so this blog is written from *gasp* an older mom's perspective.

I love being a mom to the funniest little girl on the planet (check out the scroll over to the right ---> for some of her gems!) and I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures together!

Wordful Wednesday - Let's go to the park!

Topic of the Week
Empathy with an awareness of the interdependence of all things,
and the strong desire to alleviate suffering.

Today I felt a few words were needed! 
I was away all day and eager to see my family so I gave them a call to say I was finally at home. They were in the car.
Daddy said, "Mommy's home now.
Sweets says, "I still want to go to the park.
Daddy to Sweets, "Isn't that like throwing mommy under the bus?" 
She thinks about it, "NO! It is only a LITTLE BIT throwing her under the bus. Let's go to the park!"
(Looks like a little more work on COMPASSION may be needed!)
