That said, not all of Red Stick Mom’s mom hacks, tips and tricks are about fixing food or mom’s self care. Maybe you are looking for a better way to store your family’s precious photo memories. Have you ever wondered what to do with the cupcakes that your kids inevitably didn’t finish? You haven’t really lived until you’ve tried “recycle cake.” We even get intimate with other topics like why every mom should try period panties and the value of a nursing cart when there’s a newborn in your home.

Mourning a Dear Friend :: Crystal Welch I'm mourning the loss of my dear friend Crystal Welch, whose passing has left a gaping hole in my life and the lives of those who loved her. I have yet to tell her nephews. In the initial stages of grief, I'm struggling to come to terms with the news, feeling numb and disbelieving. It's hard to accept that someone so full of life and joy could be gone so soon. Crystal was more than just a friend; she was a loving aunt to my sons, a constant presence at every milestone, and a force of nature who embraced life with enthusiasm and passion who also loved snow boots. As the reality of her...

Dating After 40

Dating After 40 When I was 16 I had my first crush on Johnathan, who became my boyfriend. We were so cute as a couple. We stayed up all night on the phone, held hands in class, ate together for lunch, and then it happened, my very first fantasy.

We were so in love, and no one could tell me that we were meant for each other, then a tragic accident happened, and he passed away before we graduated. The fantasy never went away, as I got older it became a desire for me to get married. Throughout...
A Letter to My 8th Grade Graduate August 2015, you gave me one last hug and bravely walked towards the door of your Kindergarten classroom. You turned back slightly to smile at me. Then, you confidently returned to find your seat, never looking back again. You got through that day and all the days that came after. I was a mess knowing you were growing up. You are a sponge for learning, soaking everything up; you never cease to amaze me! I am so proud of you for always putting yourself out there, trying new things, and discovering your passions.
