Does Emma really call you "Mother"? That's hilarious! I wish I had thought of that when I was 11...MOTHER! DUH! just has so much more ring to it.


This would have only been more perfect if she came home and then bragged to her siblings that her trip to DC was better than theirs because the adventure was greater.

And also...knitting? You knit now?


Hooray for adventures!! And Moms on the other end fixing things. Good Work Mom!


I only wish my parents were that enthusiastic about spending quality time with their grandchildren. They are only 40 minutes away. My two kids are the only grandchildren in the state. But their idea of a "fun" day includes taking them to local art fairs, maybe taking them to a museum, but it must be educational, so they are treated to multiple lectures from their Poppa. And sugar? Forget about it. They somehow failed to ever hone their "fun" genes, if they ever had any. Fortunately, I discovered mine once I moved out of the house, and have worked it hard, so my kids can't wait for me to be a grandma!!


Oh my! I'm so sorry I'm so behind I didn't get to read all about this. What a day! I'd probably be upset too, on all ends.
Mom's worry, I'm sure as much as you were worried ab out your Daughter? your mother was worried about her daughter handling her granddaughter.

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.
