My life is hectic, finding balance is key. I’ve come to love the chaos that surrounds me and wouldn’t have it any other way. Check out my blog here or at http://blissfullychaoticlife.com. Paola Deininger Blissfully Chaotic Life

I read a post back in December about a woman who was harrased by a Target employee for breastfeeding her child while out Christmas shopping.
A friend turned me on to this blog, The Happy Wives Club, and I can't get enough of it.
I remember my first time using a computer. I was in kindergarten and the one we used (although it was very high-tech at the time) is what we now consider the "stone-age" version of a computer. Yes, the ones with the black and green screen. I still remember the so-called "game" our computer teacher used to teach us the proper keyboard positioning. I was pretty good at it!

Ok, so we've all had our fair share of crazy neighbors to deal with in our neighborhoods. It's unavoidable, they're everywhere no matter where you go. Last year we moved from a beautiful and luxurious apartment, which to this day I still miss and wouldn't have left if the bloody commute wasn't so long, to a nice little townhouse near my parents house.
I came across this fantastic article written by Erin from TheSkinnyScoop.com and just had to share it with you!
I'm sad to say that the blame game has already started in our little household. Maybe spending so much time with my younger siblings has set a bad example on my little munchkin. In a house jam packed with teenagers, there's bound to be plent of blaming going around, especially when it comes to dishes being left out, clothes left on the floor, an unwatched TV flashing away in an empty living room... the list goes on and on. This has been what my daughter has been exposed to for the past two years of her life.
Please don't read too much into this post title. When I first saw it in my email I was horrified and had to read it to see what would make a person write something like that. I'm very glad I did.
You know it's bad when you 18 year old sister no long wants to raid your closet for her upcoming date night or your husband asks "is that what you're wearing tonight?" when you're about to head out for dinner. That's exactly what's happening to me now. I'm not saying I've always been the most savvy dresser or that I wore the latest trends, but once upon a time I did know how to put together a decent outfit or two. So what's happened between then and now? Here's my answer - I became a mom.
Ever since our daughter turned one, my husband has been ready to start trying for the next one. I was a little reluctant at first, wanting to get more one on one time with Hayden. When she was 14 months, I finally came around to the idea of having another child.
I was just reading Vanita's post "Where did my feminity go?" and felt inspired to follow up on that topic. As mothers, we tend to put ourselves on the back burner while tending to the needs of our family. I know I'm guilty of doing that more often then I should. Just recently I got promoted to a higher position at work and needed to make some changes to myself for this promotion. I've let myself go a lot since I had my daughter...
If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that the past few nights have been really difficult for me. My daughter has been having a difficult time sleeping and I haven't really been able to narrow down what's causing this... until last night.
I love my little girl to pieces and one of my favorite things about her is her love of entertaining people. It doesn't matter if we're home, at a relatives house, or at our local Starbucks. It doesn't even matter if there's music playing, she'll make her own! She's only 21 months and already she can carry a tune and follow dance moves pretty well for a kid her age. I swear, she's a dancer in the making. Read more...
