Happy Meme Monday: Black Friday in America

Have you heard of ‘Black Friday‘? This is a day when stores all across America offer ridiculously low prices on items, such as toys and electronics. This happens in November, the day after Thanksgiving. While some are willing – and others not, to spend time with their families on Thanksgiving and then go straight to their favorite store – yes, at night! And yes, they’re camping out in front of a store. They will wait – some all night, until that store opens the next day, to ensure they are first in line and get the item they want at the low price being offered. I know, you’re confused, so am I. I’ve never understood this.

Happy Meme Monday: Parenting + The Hunger Games

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about parenting is not to judge someone else’s parenting –¬† speaking about toddlers especially. Have you heard the saying, ‘terrible twos’?! Yes, they were wrong, there’s the terrible twos, threes and fours. Maybe even beyond, but who am I to judge?!

Have you been present when a mom – or dad, is clearly struggling with their child, you know, and then you see the parent trying to kneel down to the child’s level, whispering in the child’s ear, all in hopes the child listens, only to land on deaf ears?! I know the feeling. I’ve seen that, I’ve experienced that, and it all can be a bit brutal!

Happy Meme Monday: Let’s Compare Headaches

If you or someone you know has¬†Chiari Malformation¬†or any other illness that is followed by chronic pain, you know the hard task of having to explain the illness to people. That dreaded moment of having to explain how you feel, how it affects your life,¬† sometimes even after you’ve told these same people that your illness has no cure – multiple times! Not to mention trying really hard to tell them about your pain levels, headaches and what you have to live with, in such a way that won’t scare the Jesus out of them!

It doesn’t stop there, because even after you’ve explained the type of pounding headaches you have, they then proceed to tell you about their headaches. Because they think it compares to yours and how sharing that with you somehow will comfort you – yes, this meme is for you!

Happy Monday.
