Way back when, a long time ago, Henry started at a Montessori school where we lived in Macon. They had the most adorable class of 2 year olds ever. They became a very close-knit group. They all moved up together to Primary and stayed together for the next two years. In that group, was a […]

I’m Good With One

Sometimes I’m reminded that in spite of knowing I’m the mother to two children, I have become a mother of one. I don’t mean this in the “I’ve physically lost a son and only have one kid now” way. I mean this in the “I can’t handle more than one kid at a time” way. […]

Pep Pep PEPPY!!

I’m a morning person. I’d much rather be up at 6am than stay up past 9:30. I know. I’m an old lady. I’m good with that! Being room mom (yay me) for Henry’s class, I was invited to the PEP RALLY (use jazz hands, please) to kick off their big fundraiser, the Boosterthon. If y’all […]

Growing up in my house, there was a very well known event that haunted me. It was the Olive Sandwich Rite of Passage. I knew about this from the time I was small. In order to “leave home” for college, my sister and I would have to eat an olive sandwich. Sounds harmless, right? Wondering […]

Monday night was Curriculum Night at Henry’s school. I was nervous about it this year because I am *drum roll* a ROOM MOM. Don’t ask me what made me sign up to do it other than I’ve obviously lost my mind or I thought for some reason I’d be good at it. I don’t know. […]
