After a very stressful week this is just what the girls and I needed…



The lights on the Ice is what caught my eye first as I held the hand of my two year while her big sister showed us the way to our seats. Counting as we went down the stairs that I thought would NEVER END! I say this not because it was inconvenient because normally it wouldn’t be but after the x-rays this week on my broken foot and the whirlwind of a nightmare I seem to have found myself in… Those stairs were a bit of a hike but SO worth it.

The ice was shimmering and the show was about to begin, we had made it there just in time. As the hockey “players” entered the rink I saw some of my children’s new movie characters. Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness present the show with many appearances throughout. Isabella and Elleanna have seen this movie a few times though sadly I have not with my busy work schedule; I found myself so entertained. I felt as if I were a child again; my mouth may have been open in “Aw” as well as the children’s.


As different memory balls bounced out the Inside Out characters grabbed a nice red one… Nice? Ehh no it was an angry memory which brought Beauty and the beast to the stage. From the classic Be Our Guest song to the love that tamed the Beast we were charmed.

“Why, we only live to serve. Try the grey stuff it’s delicious! Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes.” -Be Our Guest by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman


As Mickey did his magic with one of my childhood movies, Fantasia; I saw my girls and brother in-law become more bewitched as the brooms showed off their moves. Their short but magical performance kept us wondering who would be next. Doc, Sleepy, Grumpy, Bashful, Happy, Sneezy and don’t forget Dopey took the ice with Snow White and the Evil Queen.


Many of our favorite classics such as Jasmine and her Prince Aladdin, Meredith, Prince Eric and Ariel as well as Tiana along with many more glided across the ice with grace. We watched the many different princesses arrive on the Ice; creating such a magical experience  as the children’s eyes lit up.

“Mommy, Mommy! Look! Look!” Pointing at all the Princess’s that I was unaware would be making appearances, Isabella looked at if she was the happiest little girl in the world. Until we had our intermission break, I don’t believe their eyes left the ice!


We jumped up. because every parent knows when you have a chance for a bathroom break you make a break for it and RUN! So back up those favorite stairs of mine we went for a bit of time in lines for bathrooms with the MANY mini princesses. As I limped back to my seat I wondered where my brother in-law, oldest daughter and mother in-law were at. Joel’s favorite part that he was waiting on was about to begin. But just like Dory our families had to remember how to get back to our seats and find one another.




Elleanna dancing in her seat and Joel mesmerized I felt a bit of peace. Happiness in my soul, again after this week… This show gave us all a bit of childhood memories from adults to our children and grandchildren; sharing in the moments of “Aw” while Princess’s did flips and twists on ropes, classic movies we grew up watching and the new favorites that our children are hooked on came to life.


We sang along many times but Olaf’s “In Summer” was a favorite… I found myself mimicking each line of Frozen due to the fact I’ve watch it a million times or more. (Maybe without children sometimes… hehe)

“Do you want to build a snowman? Or ride our bike around the halls?

I think some company is overdue I’ve started talking to The pictures on the walls!

(Hang in there, Joan)”


 As always I am blown away by Disney on Ice, am cannot wait until next year but YOU ALL have opportunity now. Make some memories, life is too short.

Confessions of a crazed mother: Where has time gone?

The twinkle in your eyes as you smile with mischievous intentions in your near future I wonder where my baby girl has gone. Already four years of motherhood, messy diapers, bath time fights and snuggles in bed I couldn’t imagine a time without her. We’ve been through many things and she’s been my best friend through it all; through the time outs and upsetting moments… Through the laughing hysterically and our “mommy & daughter time” she’s been the one to know my failures and seen my success. Isabella Marie was my first reason at being a better person, being the best mother I know how. Though at times many don’t see eye to eye with how I raise my children; I see the good in my children and who they are yet to become. I see the obstacles they have and will do my best to have them lessened then what I have seen. I will stand by my girls while they reach their first crush, heartbreaks and falls. But in this moment I will take in the four years of motherhood to this perfect angel Isabella.

I remember the moment I found out I was pregnant, so scared of what I would do… How would I take care of you. “Oh god what if I hurt her while I’m holding onto her tiny body?!” was one of my largest fears. As time went on the excitement began to build, setting up the nursery adding special touches of your name above your crib I couldn’t wait for you to make your arrival.

Your first car ride home.

I remember putting you in the car seat to carry you out of Winnie Palmer as everyone smiled at the bright eyed, bushy hair princess as we strolled by it was official after about 40 hours of labor, bouncing on a medicine ball… Walking non stop and being induced I was finally taking my Princess home. The best was yet to come… And the fears!

For a week long I was so worried about sleeping alone in my bedroom with you in the cradle I once laid in as an infant… We (Nana and I) spent one week hyped on caffeine and laying on the sofa and love seat, falling asleep with you on our chests or watching you in the cradle. Learning how to make a bottle, burp and keep your little butt awake for feedings. Tia Nay-Nay noticed that first hand, she saw my fear and my break down of crying wondering why my baby girl wouldn’t wake for eight hours to eat no matter how hard I tried. Bathing you, loud noises and making you “Fist pump” to music… You were as stubborn as your mother and gave me my first heart attack as a mother.

Visiting the Washington Monument.
Plane ride to Washington Dc. (Not even a year old)

I spoiled you… I still do just we share a bit more now with sissy (Elleanna). We took trips mommy and Isabella to Washington Dc to see Grandpa and MiMi.. We took trips to New York to see Aunt Dee and Uncle Dave… We visited Disney constantly; though it helped when mommy was friends with Nemo.

Aunt Dee bought your first Disney balloon.

I cannot express how much you have taken my breath away… From your first word, steps, rolling over to your first birthday…


You still seem to amaze me now, with the new words… New activities and how you crack me up. You are one of the greatest gifts that I’ve been given. An opportunity to better myself, my life and the opportunity to be your mother and best friend.


A year has passed again, with many new things… Pre-K3 and soccer… Becoming more of a big sister. Elleanna already looks up to you, I see the love between you two and hope that it never fades. She is in our best friend group and we’ll teach her all our secrets..


Always remember you are my Princess, my baby girl no matter the age and that I am always proud of you… But where has the time gone!?


timegone8How do you cherish the time as your little ones get older?

Do you make photo books, non-stop photos and matching outfits (shoes)?
