Inconsiderate Mom Award

Posted by idawrites on May 19, 2011 in All Moms, Children |

I’ve had a huge mental barrier about writing this post. I know that we, as normal people, hate to make ourselves look bad and open up our less than attractive traits for the world to see. However, this has been clawing at me to get out and onto “paper” since it happened. Mother’s Day is […]


My Perfectly Imperfect Mother’s Day Morning

Posted by idawrites on May 8, 2011 in All Moms, Children |

On the one morning a year that my family would like for me to sleep in (so THEY can sleep in) and lounge about while they dote on me, I (of course) woke up at 5:30 am and couldn’t get back to sleep. I played some solitaire on my phone while lying still and trying […]


Who’s Your Momma?

Posted by idawrites on May 8, 2011 in All Moms |

I know everyone has their own spin on Mother’s Day. For my friends and family members who’ve lost their moms, this is one hell of a tough day. Brad and Jeremy, please know that my thoughts and love are with you today. If you come from a large family, a close knit community, or a […]


Last Week, You Learned To Walk

Posted by idawrites on April 26, 2011 in All Moms, Children |

I have no idea how time passed so quickly. They were laying you in my arms for the first time ever, just a few short months ago… surely it couldn’t have been longer than that. And wasn’t it just last week that you were learning to walk?   And making everyone fall in love with […]


Of Music and Dreams

Posted by idawrites on March 21, 2011 in All Moms, Children, Getting It All |

There was always music in our house growing up. No matter where we were or who we were with, music was always a part of our daily life. To say that I had a diverse exposure to music would be putting it mildly. Granny taught us to sing as little children from old church hymnals. […]


Fair Weather Friends

Posted by idawrites on March 1, 2011 in All Moms, Friends |

Over this past weekend, I realized that I’m a really crappy fair weather friend. I know that people generally see the term Fair Weather Friend as a negative… someone who is only around when times are good. But what about the friends who only make time for you when times are not? Is that just […]


Cobb County School Board – Common Sense is DEAD

Posted by idawrites on February 22, 2011 in All Moms, Children, education |

Today is a rare occasion… when my political opinions intersect directly with my parenting opinions and my PTSA President opinions.  In Cobb County, GA (where we live) the school board held a vote last week and 4 to 3 voted for a 2011-2012 school calendar that went against the (VERY VOCAL) wishes of the parents, […]


My Summer Vacation – By Ida Davidson

Posted by idawrites on August 11, 2010 in All Moms, Getting It All |

Whoa this thing is incredibly dusty! Let’s see if I can remember how to work all the knobs and switches. Remember when you were a kid in elementary school and the first week of school you had to write about your summer vacation? Where you went, what you did, what you learned while you weren’t […]


Before I Was A Mom

Posted by idawrites on June 10, 2010 in All Moms, Transitions |

I read what a lot of other Moms say, every day. Some make me think. Some make me laugh. Some make me weep. Some make me remember what my girls were like when they were tiny. Today, they’ve made me do some of each… most of the articles were all on the same topic: Before […]


17 Reasons My Teens Aren’t Jerks

Posted by idawrites on June 3, 2010 in All Moms, Children |

Yesterday I wrote that my teenagers are scarily normal people and haven’t been abducted by aliens. I’ve been planning to write about this for a while but, over the weekend I asked the girls WHY they weren’t asshole know-it-all teenagers. I got very different answers than I was expecting, but I’m still happy to know […]
