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 […]

According to the website, it’s a Leadership Mentoring program that promotes: “These universal ethical principles apply to anyone, anywhere, anytime:” Respect Integrity Self-control Courage Humility Excellence Compassion Enthusiasm Teamwork Honor In a school that is known more for […]


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 […]


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 […]


Two Words: Panda Converse

Posted by idawrites on March 28, 2011 in Children, Shopping |

Last week, I told you that I did the unthinkable and patched my daughter’s shoes with cardboard until we could shop for a suitable replacement pair. Sierra and I set out on Saturday morning to do just that. On our way out the door, Mark asked if she was going to get another pair like […]


Is it still being cheap if it isn’t about the money?

Posted by idawrites on March 22, 2011 in Children, Frugal |

My husband officially thinks I’ve gone “Too Far” on my quest to save a buck. And really, if it was to save money, I’d have to agree. But this time, my skinflint ways are not about money at all. Two days ago, Sierra (who is now 15) came to me to tell me that her […]


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. […]


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, […]


Forever Changed

Posted by idawrites on February 8, 2011 in Children, Humor |

Occasionally, when you’re all alone and the house is quiet, you have blinding moments of realization that your children have infected your brain in ways that you can’t even comprehend. If you ever wanted to know what really goes on in my house when nobody is home but me… it’s this.  Just now… on my […]


Ida TV – FSH

Posted by idawrites on February 4, 2011 in Children, Faitha, Humor, Ida TV |

There are so many things I’ve wanted to share over the last few months but have hesitated to put “pen to paper” and write here. I didn’t want to post and then look back again in 6 months and kick myself for not keeping up with it. But you know what? That’s just my internal […]
