Mamakat: And That's The Way It Was

Mamakat's prompt:  This year in blog posts…choose a favorite post from each month of 2011 and share. I had fun looking back!  The pictures are random.   I posted something every day in 2011, which was actually a New Year's resolution.  Yay me!


I liked this post  about the benefits of ruckus raising.  I would like to see a candidate add this particular plank to his platform.  I'd vote for them.


This post  is alllll about my feelings about Valentine's Day.  Although chocolate is always appreciated on any day of the year.  


I got deep about Robert Frost in this post.  I was in a mood. Having a T. Rex in your backseat will do that.



I jumped right into the A to Z Blogging Challenge with both feet, and felt very accomplished.  This post was for the letter E  and probably could have also been used for the letter P(for phobia!). 


I had some new experiences with parenting, and decided that my son and I are not going to be BFFs.


Nobody ever believes me when I mention the number of times I've set my kitchen on fire. Actually, even I have trouble believing it.


I firmly believe that the word "can't" should be erased from our language.  It is a bad word for kids to use!



I am still looking for this chair, dammit!  If you see it, please let me know.


One of the hardest parts of being a parent is letting kids climb their own mountains.


I shared my visualization exercise with the folks at Write on Edge.  It was challenging to put it down on paper after so many years in my head. 


I wrote about how some women compensate for perceived social shortcomings.


I celebrated my child's interest in pushing past every boundary, even if it's my job as a parent to rein him back in.



  1. Scary! T-Rex in the back seat I mean. ;)

  2. I love the Ruckus Raising! What's wrong with kids being kids?

  3. My son would LOVE that T-rex - hilarious photo!

    Happy New Year from N Ireland.

    (Feel free to correct my spelling - it's probably all wrong as I spell the UK/Irish way!)


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
