MmmHanson...I mean Bop...I mean Hop

Mmmmmm Hanson. Okay, okay, yes, I'm married. Yes, I'm happily married. No, I don't really have actual crushes on any Hanson boys...okay, they're men now, but c'mon. I KNOW I'm not the only one who still gets chills and a little giddy when I hear MmmBop on the radio!    My six year old obviously does not. He said he wanted to come to the Hop Jam with me on Sunday and this is what he did in the car. Granted, we were not actually listening to MmmBop. SURELY he couldn't have slept through THAT!     This past weekend turned out being totally crazy and we missed out on Mayfest, Blue Dome Arts Festival AND Spring in the Square, all fantastic events I totally wanted to go to and blog about! However,...

Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Prepare yourself for the massive amounts of fun you are about to witness in this blog post.    This past weekend, Broken Arrow celebrated its 83rd annual Rooster Days celebrations. My littlest little, Alec and I went to the parade and carnival on Saturday and had the time of our lives. Why did I only have one of my four kids with me, you ask? Well, my husband Marc decided to go fishing and we gave the kids an option of who they wanted to go with. Everyone else chose fishing.    Too. Bad. For. Them.   It was SO much fun to have quality one-on-one time with my little guy. It so rarely happens, and this was such a treat.   The weather was PERFECT, sunny and warm with a nice breeze. The parade kicked off the day and...

Don't Forget to Play

Don't Forget to Play

I've been reminded a lot lately about the power of play, laughter and lightheartedness. I get so wrapped up with life and the pressure (often placed by myself) to parent perfectly and discipline and use every moment as a teaching moment. When your life is as busy as mine is, as all of our lives are, the time you have that isn't spent working and tending to the stuff of life often feels limited. It's easy to spend what little free time we have checking out, watching TV and barking more orders at our kids. When what they really need is to play. And breathe. And move. And explore. It's too easy to become irritated with the thousands of hey mommy, mommies and respond with a frustrated, "Whaaatt?" I am finding it makes a huge difference in the...

On April 12th, several Tulsa families gathered at La Fortune Park to celebrate Cesarean Awareness Month at a family picnic hosted by ICAN of Tulsa and Tulsa County BirthNetwork (TCBN).  Some came prepared with fancy picnic packs with coordinating baskets and blankets! Others grabbed whatever they could find on the way and joined the fun. There were plenty of new and seasoned mommas, and lots of squishy babies! Several childbirth professionals and childbirth advocates joined to support one another and help raise awareness for the one in three women who give birth by cesarean delivery in our country. "ICAN's mission is to raise awareness about the rising cesarean rate in this country, the unique needs of cesarean...
