I just granted myself the time to read this, and I realized, I need to take more time for me. I know our kids will be in a different school next year. Hard decision for us, but I am certain for the short time we have been there, I have met some folks that I care nothing for and others that I will miss. You are one of those I will miss. I know that God let our paths cross for a reason, and I am truly thankful for his knowledge of allowing this to happen. May you have a wonderful New Year, and Thank you for your friendship.


sounds like a pretty good year to me. :-)


What a great post! I re-read some favourites and found a couple that I'd somehow missed.

I wish you a 2012 with fewer dramas, great health for all, continued progress with life's difficulties and time for you. I sense that less laundry would be welcome too!

I'm grateful that you continue to make me laugh and cry, and that by sharing so much of your own life, you make me realise that I'm not alone with the craziness that is marriage and parenthood.

Thank you for everything you've written in 2011, and I can't wait for all you will say in 2012! xx

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
