Mommy of Many™ Show #60: Here Come the Holidays

It’s Thanksgiving! This week I talk about getting it all together for Thanksgiving and answering the question of Santa. We ended up with a bright and beautiful San Diego Thanksgiving Day. I got to start the day with a bike ride to the beach and then iron everyone’s clothes so we could head out to [...]

Mommy of Many Show # 59: Happy Easter

Happy Easter! I’m exhausted from a day of beautiful weather and enjoying the family.  The prep work to make this day happen has caught up with me.  After 4, separate, dress-shopping trips and countless trips to various stores for basket fillers, I’m happy that the day was enjoyed by all.  But now I’m listening to the [...]

Mommy of Many Show #58: Recovery

It’s been much too long since I was able to TALK about what’s happening around here!  Recovery has taken more of a toll on me than I thought it would, but I’ve been listening to the cues my body has sent me and I’m feeling more “normal” and able to jump back into the routine [...]

Mommy of Many Show #57: Changes and Blessings

This has been quite a week!  I thought I was going to have lots of time between scheduling my surgery and actually having the surgery.  In the short time between finding out that I will be going in next week and now, I’ve come to realize that the time frame is a blessing in disguise. [...]

Mommy of Many Show #56: Moms and New Babies

This week I talk about being a new mom who’s made the decision to breastfeed.  Even though there are a ton of books that have been written on the subject and a wealth of advice and knowledge that comes to new moms from family and friends, I find that there are still some basic questions [...]

Show #1 Back up and Running

A few days ago I asked for some patience from everyone while I get everything back up to speed with the shows.  When  I changed servers, only about half of the shows moved.  This means I have  A LOT of manual work to do.  It’s going to take me awhile to have it all going [...]

Mommy of Many Show #54: Merry Christmas from the Lang Clan

It was a peaceful Christmas at the Lang house. We were all together and kept it simple. We open gifts on Christmas Eve which makes it easier for us to get to church on Christmas morning. After church, we headed home and I cooked while the kids enjoyed some games and old movies. I gathered [...]

Mommy of Many Show #53: Getting Ready for Christmas at the Lang House

With less than two weeks left before Santa’s big night, I can’t help but look around and feel like I’m not quite ready. There’s still plenty of shopping to take care of, Christmas cards to be addressed, the tree to be bought and trimmed and all those holiday cookies to be made. The key is [...]

Mommy of Many Show #52: Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful to have all my kids together for this holiday! Everyone is safe and healthy. It’s been a good year.

Mommy of Many Show #50: Taking Care of Mom

In the fast-paced, busy world of being a mom it’s easy to lose track of yourself. After 7 months of focusing on the kids and the house and another month of getting used to having Clay back, it was time for me to remember that I need a little “me” time. I was able to [...]

Mommy of Many Show #48: The First Week Back

Mommy of Many Show #47: Homecoming!

This week marked the end of Clay’s deployment! He and all those who were with him returned safely. The kids got to watch the helicopters come into the squadron and run out onto the flight line to greet him. Now our family is in a period of readjustment as the kids get used to having [...]

Mommy of Many Show #46: Learning Lessons #8-Saying “I’m Sorry”

Saying “I’m sorry” can be a powerful tool. There are those days when parenting can get the best of us and we raise our voice or put the kids off or become unfocused. Going back to the kids and simply saying, “I’m sorry” and “I love you” can make all the difference. Thank you for [...]
