#FF: Mother-Daughter Date Jar

Photo Prompt by Pryia Bajpal

Mommy and Zivah sat, tearing construction paper. They were prepping a Mother-Daughter date jar, while laughing about snorts. Freshly baked snickerdoodles and hot choco were within reach. They loved one-on-one time, together, and the weather would be nice again soon. There are so many date ideas, this jar brings a bit of an exciting surprise to idea. Mommy is so excited about the months to come and the memories they’ll make.

Making Christmas Ornaments🎄

3/4 cup of water

1 cup of baking soda

1/2 cup of cornstarch

Warm over medium heat until it starts to thicken and looks like mashed potatoes.

Remove from heat and let cool.

Use rolling pin to roll out. The instructions said about 1/4 in thick but I didn’t bother to measure.

You can add design then paint later or design as you go.

Bake for an hour on 175 degrees. Turn over at roughly 30 mins.

#CFFC Tuesday #3

Theme: Things people play with 


This is a free play area for kids at one of many Metro Parks in Cleveland. These puppets are awaiting kids at Rocky River Nature Center, along with blocks, a huge turtle shell, fish to view, and more.

Cleveland has really impressed me with how well kept they’ve managed these parks. In addition to the cleanliness, I’m so impressed with the whole set up. Big cities usually struggle to keep nature close by ; not Cleveland.

Top 10

Reasons I Love My Daughter in School :

  • She makes new friends.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the importance of friendships. I truly wish I realized this, that my parents nurtured this idea when I was my daughter’s age.

  • I see other parents.

Suddenly I don’t feel so alone in the ” sometimes” struggles that feel like suffocation.

  • I hear others parenting.

This morning, I walked past an older woman of whom I’ve spoken to before. She had a small child with her, and she was instructing, “You always let the girls to first.” Way to go ma’am. That’s chivelry this world’s forgotten. Continue reading “Top 10”

Day 14: Mommy Needs a Time Out

Good Morning:D It’s a grey and bleek Thursday morning here in my part of Ohio. I believe rain is to visit, periodically, this morning. While I had plans to invest some quality time into blogging, my daughters needed entertainment.

I knew there was plenty for them to do. Something about mommy pulling out toys with a few added words sparks their imagination much more quickly.

Growing up, I had 3 sisters and 4 brothers. I hated sharing toys. I hated when my mom would get impatient and tell us to go play. Now, I get it! Sometimes, every momma needs personal space. Sometimes, she just needs a 5 minuet time out.. to herself… So she can recollect and feel some sense of control in her life.

While I’m working on my thing, taking a little time for me, here’s a peak into the world of Zivah & Calandra 😀

Day Four

Prompt: What would you include in a truly epic gift basket?

Epic? Gift means give to someone. Hmmmm… I would say, then, this depends on to whom it’s going.

#7 Well Done Meal

With the humidity here in Cleveland, I’ve lived on salads, sandwiches, and finger refrigerator foods. It’s awesome to know it’s healthy, and my body appreciates the sentiment. It’s just calories make me feel a bit more me and much less like Dracula! 😂😂😂 (Insert any Snickers commercial here..) This evening, I managed to bake chicken breasts covered with ranch dressing and Italian breadcrumbs! It was AMAZING!! The meat was super moist and loaded with flavor! I made Spanish Rice and a small veggies and cheese combo side! Collectively, everything complimented one another and was delicious! My girls weren’t interested in having any so I even got to enjoy it HOT!!

“Yay for happiness on a plate😂😂😂😂”

Letter to My Momma💗

Dear Momma:

Happy Mother’s Day Darling! It’s so incomprehensible that I am older than you were when you passed away. It’s not fair. I’ve needed you dozens upon dozens of time over the last five years… But, life isn’t fair.

Though you’re not here, I feel you live through me. I am your only daughter with children of her own. Zivah was born 5 years ago, and she’s named after you. Calandra was born 2 years ago, and she’s compassionate beyond a normal person.

Many times I question if I’m doing this Mothering right. I question if I’m too strict. I question if I’m too Lenient. I worry every second that I’m not allowing them to simply be children. Am I robbing them of their childhood? All these questions answered, the reassurance that I’m doing a good job, a tight hug simply because that mends all wounds would surely feel incredible.

I’m sorry you’re not here momma. I’m sorry that someone wasn’t paying attention and hit you. I’m sorry if you felt any pain… or if you feared dying. I’m sorry if you felt alone and lonely… I know you often felt similar feelings with 5 young kids.

Momma, I wish I could squeeze you and tell you thank you. Thank you for trying. Thank you for not aborting my siblings or me. Thank you for loving me enough to give me up. Thank you for giving me a unique spelling of my name, and for doing the same to my siblings. I’d say Thank you for doing the very best you could with what you had, where you were.

I would look at you and say I know you wanted to give up. I know you wanted to escape to the bathroom and just sob, because I’ve felt just that. I would tell you I love you so much because mothering two little kids is a challenge, I can’t begin to imagine five hungry babies with wet diapers. You are my hero.

This Mother’s Day, I want you to know that I admire, love, and am so proud of you momma. Despite every challenge you faced, you kept going… and despite your decision to move to VA, and what your intentions were, you believed we children deserved more.

Momma, you understood sacrifice… and that’s what motherhood is all about. Please watch over my sanity momma, I tend to lose it once in a while. Please watch over my babies, your gorgeous granddaughters, I ache for them to know you. I love you endlessly momma, and you are my hero always!


Your Beloved Daughter

Good Morning

Hello Everyone=}

It’s Monday! How is everyone feeling? Positive? Hungover? Chipper? Whatever you are, remember that you are alive! That’s a gift. Some individuals are fighting to stay alive.

I’m super excited because today will be a “First” for Zivah. I bought her a ticket to see Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure in the nearby theater. I’m thankful that she and I are able to so this, as mother and daughter. Memories, like this, are ones I wish I had. I wonder if she’ll like the seating and the big screen. I’m curious if she’ll be ok sitting still long enough to watch the entire movie. There’s so much new about this, and it’s exhilarating.

Once we’ve finished with our movie, there’s an event close by with music and kids. The weather is looking beautiful for an event filled day.

I hope you have a wonderful day and always remember how much you are loved.
