The dreaded topic...

That topic would be death.

It is unfortunately going to happen.

The only thing keeping us from dying is the fountain of youth and finding it is a must for that to work.

To prepare for death *shudder* we have Wills in order to get our finances and burial requests in order.

Now what happens to our networking sites like Facebook? Do they get deleted? Do they stay in order for people to post well wishes?

There is now a site that takes care of this, This site allows you to name an heir to your Facebook page.

Go to to learn how to get your Facebook taken care of.

At first I thought it was a little morbid. I mean name an heir to my Facebook?

I mean I won't be able to see it once I'm gone.

However, when reading what the site has I thought it would be nice to know that people would have a page to do the following:

  • A Life Status Indicator on your Facebook profile

  • Real-time death notification to all connections

  • Dedicated tribute page with memorial service, donation information and guestbook
It is hard to think about our untimely death, but it's always better to be ready for the unknown!

When the kid you becomes the adult you...


Child Version:

You go out to eat. You get your kids menu and crayons. You color and try and get into the adult talk. It's boring, so you get back to coloring. You get your food first. You are so hungry you shovel your food in your mouth. In five minutes you're done. You look up and see the adults have eaten only a bite of their food. They are spending more time talking than eating. You tell your parents, "I'm done. I want to go home. Can we go now? I'm done and bored. Please, can we go now?" Parents tell you to stop whining and that we will go when we are ready to go.

Adult Version:

You go out to eat. You make sure your kids have a menu and crayons to keep them busy, because you forgot to bring toys. They color, they are content and quiet, and you can finally engage yourself in adult talk. You enjoy the light-hearted conversation. You see your child get restless and are thankful the waiter brings out your child's food. Your food comes and resume talk as well. After five minutes of eating your child starts tugging your arm. They keep complaining they are bored and want to leave over and over. You now wish your babysitter had come through.

I have been the main star of both versions. When I was younger I always wondered why adults could just sit and talk for hours and not be bored. I thought, "Don't you just eat and leave restaurants?"

As an adult I do everything to keep the chicks entertained, so I can talk that little bit more. Adult interaction comes at a minimum when you become a parent. Of course my kids have become that ever dreaded child version and I have somehow become the adult version that wishes the chicks would be those who were okay with being seen and not heard at restaurants.

Fears of a Mother

All parents have fears, but I believe a mother has more.

Yes, I know fathers have fears, but we are women and we have hormones aka estrogen.

I fear many things with my chicks.

Here is my list:

Mean girls

Lack of self-esteem

Eating disorder



I would love love love to stick my chicks in a bubble to protect them from the real world.

Of course that is not realistic.

So for us momma chicks all we can do is teach and hope they learn from our lessons.

Since I am needing a push into coming up with ideas I thought what better way then to take part in this 30 Day Blog Journal that is hosted by Legally Brunette.

I know most of you taking part in this is at day 27, or well close to the end. I figured it's better late than never right?

For those almost done lets take a trip back to day one. The topic for this first day is...

Your Favorite Song:

This is a hard one because there are many songs that are my favorite. They are all favorites for different stages in my life. Some remind me of good days and others remind me of bad days. For this installment I will choose the song that is dedicated to my wedding day. This song is We Can Last Forever by Chicago.

Baby Chicks new friend

See this picture?

Isn't that just the cutest potty you have ever seen?

It's a frog and a potty rolled into one! It would make any toddler want to potty in it right? Right?

Well not my baby chick.

Went to Target (my home away from home) and got baby Chick this potty.

I showed it to her and she LOVES it!

Well she loves it SO much that she will not go potty in it.

The first day we had it she tried to bring it in the bathtub with her. I guess she needed another friend to play with in there.

That night she picked it up and put it in bed with her. Yep in bed.

Now it is just sitting in our living room as another toy.

Lesson learned: Do not get a potty that looks fun. Always go boring!

Sundays are meant to kick back...

BWS tips button

and relax!

This momma chick is really trying to get back into the swing of blogging more consistently. What better way than to take part in Relax and Surf Sundays. This is such an easy way to blog hop and meet new Chicks, and well maybe some Roosters who also take part in the blogging world. I am always up for browsing new blogs. How easier can it get than relaxing on a Sunday and surfing the blogging world? Fun right?!
