Vlogging Mommies - Mushy Love Stuff vs. Guys

Image
This week we are starting a series on love! Tell us how you show love to your family, when they aren't "mushy love stuff," kind of guys. Meaning my son just told me to not hug him at the bus stop...how do you say I love you in front of your child's peers? When my Grandfather was alive he was never overly affectionate, but I kissed him on the cheek any way. How do you tell someone or show your family I love you?

{CLOSED Giveaway} Send Hallmark Valentine's Day Greetings Across The Miles

Image
Congratulations to Kelly D. who was randomly selected as our winner, thank you to all who entered!


This year, Hallmark is honoring all kinds of relationships – even across the miles.

We generally think of Valentine’s Day as a time for romance…a chance to tell our sweethearts how much they mean to us (and vice versa!) And while that’s certainly true, love comes in many forms – none of which is greater than the love a mother has for her child. Parents show (and tell) their kids how much they mean year-round, but Valentine’s Day provides a special opportunity to shower little ones with notes of adoration and share gifts they’ll love now and treasure for a lifetime.
My Mom lives in the Midwest, and we live on the East Coast; she was so excited by the Until We Hug Again Bunny and Bear! She loved the idea of recording her voice, with a special message, that my boys will hear every time they give the plush a hug. The process was so easy, just a press of the right foot, record your message, and …

How Do You Say Good-bye?

Image
I consider myself very fortunate to still have two Grandmothers who are living. We will not talk of their ages, but I can tell you I am fascinated by the stories they have shared and the way that they lived in the prime of their lives.

My Grandfather is in his last stage of life, and I am struggling to say good-bye. I consider myself lucky enough to have bonded with him over home style lunches, and many years of bowling. Although he is not my biological Grandfather, I have known and loved him since I was six years old. The amazing thing about this man is that from the moment my Mother married my Stepfather, Grandpa adored my Mother. As "outsiders," we easily could have been the black sheep of the family, but this was never the case! I will never forget the nicknames and true affection that this man showed my Mom from day one. (I cannot tell you my Mom's nickname as it is their story to tell, but my Mom has always taken it in stride and 26 years later, it is something the…
