I've finished my classes for the day which means spring break starts now! I am so excited to have a week off. I still have some work to do, but it will be significantly less than normal. Most of my homework involves watching movies for my film class, putting the final touches on my presentation, and… Continue reading Thursday, March 30, 2017

Toddlers and Bad Dreams

Last night was a rough one in the Marsh household. Cash woke up around 2 AM and had locked himself in his room so he couldn't open his bedroom door. He had turned off the sound machine and turned on the lights. So of course, Tate woke up. Tyson tried to go into their room, calm… Continue reading Toddlers and Bad Dreams

Before Having Kids

What was your life like before having kids? Was it something you are proud of? Did you travel? Did you go to school? Did you invest time in your career? Did you take time for yourself? Did you learn about yourself? What did you do with all that extra time? The reason I am writing… Continue reading Before Having Kids

Stop Caring!

***Warning***Foul Language Ahead***Warning*** Ahahaha This is mostly for my own amusement, and for my parents so they don't have to read my sassy mouth if they don't want to. 😉 As I was scrolling through FB today I saw this great article that I had to share with everyone. The article is all about not… Continue reading Stop Caring!

Follow Up To Monday’s Post

As a follow up to my feminist rant on Monday I wanted to post some of the great replies to the original post got. There are so many strong, independent, kind, and intelligent people in the world it makes my heart smile! ❤ From Boozilla: "Somehow I think you are missing the point, although much… Continue reading Follow Up To Monday’s Post

Most influential dead people

I previously posted about the 10 people I thought were the most influential alive today (you can read that here) and decided I needed to make another list of influential people who have passed away. Again, these are in no particular order. Mother Teresa Martin Luther King Jr Coretta Scott King Walt Disney Steve Jobs… Continue reading Most influential dead people

Feminism: Are We Supposed to be Delicate?

I know I usually hold these posts off for Feminist Friday but I have to break the mold today because something has come up. I was scrolling through my emails and saw something that caught my eye. WordPress (the site I use to blog) sends me emails when someone I follow posts a new blog… Continue reading Feminism: Are We Supposed to be Delicate?

Family Circle

I really like this idea of “Family Circle.” We would have to start our discussions out as pretty basic and simple ideas; such as family, friendship, kindness, bullies, hitting, etc. I think Cash would really enjoy this, and I know Tyson and I both would. Tate wouldn’t be much of a participant yet, but he could listen and get the yummy snacks. 🙂

World's Okayest Mom

  • Every week we try to do a “Family Circle” discussion, where we sit around the coffee table, talk and do stimulating activities, to teach our kids (they have taught us a few things along the way in turn) lessons they may not learn in school, or that school may not expand on, that we see as necessary knowledge.

    We’ve done so many topics, I can’t remember them all. Here are a few:

    First Aid
    Money Management
    Stranger Danger

  • Friendship and Kindness
  • Controlling Anger
  • (and a few touchy topics, that took some seriously careful planning)
  • World Religions and Atheism
  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • and Human Rights

    Some idea’s I have for the future are:

  • Politics & Political Parties
  • Parenting
  • Marriage
  • Taxes
  • Future Career Paths
  • College
  • and Going Green

Usually we have a snack, turn on background music to keep the energy up, and start with explaining the topic and…

The Time Has Come

I'm super excited to announce that I am getting my boobs done! Tyson and I went to my pre-op appointment yesterday to discuss sizing, procedure, post-op, and go over any other questions we had. This is something I have wanted since before I had Cash and felt even more strongly about after I had Tate… Continue reading The Time Has Come

Our Sweet and Sensitive Boy

Last night we were relaxing on the couch watching some random show that Cash chooses on Netflix called Beyblade: Metal Fusion. The show was terrible. It's basically like Pokemon but with spinning tops. Awful, but Cash liked it so we can suffer for 30 min to make him happy. That's what parenting is all about… Continue reading Our Sweet and Sensitive Boy
