Dance Mom’s giving us a bad name!


Most of you have probably heard of the show Dance Mom’s. I have danced for over 30-years and to be honest, it took me until season 2 to know that this show was out there. Being a “Dance Mom” I figured…”awesome…I will watch it!” Well let’s say I TRIED to watch it, but, it  gave us dance Mom’s a bad rap!

I could not believe how awful and horrible those Mom’s AND the teacher are. Holy cow! Honestly, what Mom, with a real brain would allow their kids to be put into that situation? What parent would stand for that kind of environment? I know the reason… Continue reading

MEN…If you are not going to keep it up, then don’t do it, in the beginning. What am I talking about?

Sometimes U just have to take charge…stand up for URself!

For many years I have spent more time then I am willing to admit angry at my husband. He is very good at remembering the first day we talked on the phone, the day we meet, where we ate and things like that, but he does not keep a schedule of his daily events and he is constantly making plans, even after I tell him we have plans.

When I have confronted him before, many times, he just says, “I just forgot, what do you want me to do about it…it is what it is?” After many arguments and bad feelings towards the situation I have come up with something that so far seems to be working…most of the time. Continue reading
