It’s Time To Grow Up – Jaclyn’s Open Letter to the Haters in Online Public Forums

When I got settled in at work this morning, I had an email from a listener. Here's what it said:

"I'm not sure if this has been addressed or noticed but you are taking one heck of a beating on (a forum/chat website)! I was just wanting to let you know before it gets way out of hand! So if you would take a look ASAP and hopefully you can say what you have to say! This is Owensboro and I know how one rumor can ruin your whole career and/or life!"

Now, I think most of us can guess what site this ridiculousness is on, but I don't promote adolescent behavior and I won't start now.

Needless to say, I am not at all happy about this.

Carsyn’s School Practices In Case The “Bad Guys” Show Up

When I picked Carsyn up yesterday afternoon, I went through our normal daily questions: How was your day? Did you get a treasure at school? Did you apologize to Mrs. Roby for not listening in music class last week? What all did you do at school today? What was your letter of the day?

Her answers were pretty normal until she started telling me about something new that they did. She said, "Mommy, we went downstairs and hid, just for pretend Mommy, in case the bad guys come to my school."

Cousins Are Our First Friends

This weekend, Carsyn and I went to Tennessee and to my Mom's in Marshall County to visit with the family. Right around lunchtime when I was trying to get my mini-me to gather up her things so that we could get on the road and head home, all she would say is, "Mommy! I want to stay for just five more minutes to play with my cousins!" Needless to say, I gave her way more than five minutes. They were all having so much fun, I just couldn't pull her away.

On the quiet ride home (she fell asleep before I even pulled out of the gas station, ha!), I started to remember all of the fun times growing up in Milan with all of my cousins. That's when I realized... "Cousins are our first real friends."

Things To NEVER Say To A New Mother

Yesterday at church while I was waiting to check Carsyn into "Sunday School", I noticed a new mother in front of us in line. She was holding a very new baby, I'm guessing she couldn't have been older than 6 weeks or so. While I was admiring that little bundle of preciousness (and praying that Carsyn didn't go straight for her), I witness not one, but two women ask this new Mom a question that should never be asked! Now, as my inner-redneck struggled to explode on these women, I started thinking about questions and comment that you should NEVER say to a new mother.

One Mom’s iPhone Rules For Her Son

This is one of those pictures that has shown up on my facebook feed just about a million times. So, at notification 11,576, I finally clicked on it and read it through. It was about a Mom, Janell Burley Hofmann and her 13 year-old son. You see, her son received an iPhone for Christmas. But, what's interesting about this story is what went along with him receiving that iPhone... a set of rules, 18 rules to be exact. And, if I'm being completely honest with us both, I know a lot of adults who need some of these rules... including myself.

Some of my favorites are: "#11Turn it off, silence it, put it away in public. Especially in a restaurant, at the movies or while speaking with another human being. #17 Keep your eyes up. See the world happening around you. Stare out a window. Listen to the birds. Take a walk. Talk to a stranger. Wonder without googling."

Want to see the other 16 rules?

Dad’s Reaction To BCS Championship Game Tickets [VIDEO]

I'm back from my Mom's from Christmas festivites, so I've naturally gotten back to my normal activities. Get a snack and turn on Sportscenter, ha! They showed a video of a Dad receiving tickets to the BCS National Championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama and his reaction is priceless!

I'm pretty sure everyone liked the gifts that I gave them, but I definately didn't get any reactions like this one!

Forgotten Christmas Traditions

I have heard a lot of people talking lately about Christmas traditions. From the music they listen to, how their family gets together for the Holidays, the movies the watch, and what they eat.

I started thinking about some of the traditions my family has and realized that some of these traditions have changed over the years

Toys Donated In Memory Of Lane Goodwin [PHOTOS]

I think it's safe to say that people all over the country were extremely touched by the life of Lane Goodwin. We all watched he and his family fight the monster of childhood cancer. We celebrated during the good days and our hearts were broken when he passed away in October.

In lieu of flowers or a balloon release, the family requested sentiments be in the form of gift cards to certain stores. They planned to purchase toys for the children being treated at the Vanderbilt Children's Oncology Clinic. A few weeks ago... that's just what they did!
