9.11 ~ Ten years later

Posted by Christine on September 11, 2011 in relationships

A lot changes in one decade. For me, I divorced, moved back from New Jersey, met and married the love of my life and had two children. My life couldn’t look more different from the outside. Instead of living in a 600 square foot walk up, where at the top of my street I could [...]

Posted by Christine on September 8, 2011 in Kids, Learning

So we are on week three, or the “third week” as Sean refers to it of Kindergarten. This week is a bit of a short week as we were off for Labor Day on Monday and then there was a student holiday on Tuesday while the teachers had an in-service day. We are (were, before [...]

Crafty Thank You Cards

Posted by Christine on September 2, 2011 in craft, obsession

I am a complete sucker for all things paper. I am also a sucker for Starbucks. So, when the two come together it is like a taste sensation! I like to send a thank you note to my kids’ teachers following their first week of school. Mainly because I like to customize the card with [...]

Today’s Parade–August 22, 2011

Posted by Christine on August 22, 2011 in Kids, relationships

Dear Sean, Today you started Kindergarten. Your first day of school. I can’t believe it. The time has flown so quickly.

auf Wiedersehen Uncle

Posted by Christine on August 16, 2011 in relationships

I have always associated different places with smells. Maybe my nose is more sensitive or maybe for whatever reason my brain just seems to associate memories more with smell than one of my other senses. For example, my children’s room and my parent’s home have certain smells that I always associate them with. Some smells [...]

The Pre-Cation

Posted by Christine on July 19, 2011 in Kids, Learning

As a type A, I find it very helpful to go on a “pre-cation” prior to a vacation. The objective of the pre-cation is to figure out what the travel/hotel needs are for the kids at that particular time and to have some fun. As the kids get older, their sleeping and eating needs change [...]

And the 41s have it!

Posted by Christine on June 28, 2011 in Kids, obsession

We have finally settled down from “Mavericks fever” here in the Kless house. Sean, who loves every sport, was entranced with the NBA playoffs and finals. Of course having our hometown team the Dallas Mavericks in it made it so much fun to watch! For Sean, it doesn’t matter who is playing, he loves to [...]

Take Me Out To The Ball Game (over and over and over again)

Posted by Christine on June 1, 2011 in Kids

You know how kids, and I guess some adults too, can get stuck on something. Like a song. And they listen to it over and over and over and over and over again? Well, that would be my kids with a CD we got with a book of “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.” [...]
