About FairyTaleMom

My name is Mom. I live in Fairy Tale Land with a Pirate, a Fairy and the Princess. My job duties include: head cook, Chief Executive of Laundry Operations, Vacuum Maintenance Engineer, Chief of Picking up Random objects and Primary Sherpa. I spend a great deal of time carrying sparkly, sequined, glitter covered tutus and miscellaneous dance shoes for the Princess. I long for moments of quiet and a mani/pedi. Trying to strike a balance between being a grown up and being a good mom.

It’s all over, until it starts again.

School is out. The plans for summer vacation are (mostly) made. I’m all done with waking up a cranky kid to get her ready for school. Summer is my favorite season. I love the heat and the sunshine. And, I really, really love that we are officially done with dance season….For 2 whole weeks. The […]

Lessons From my Grandfather

I won’t pretend that I knew him well; what I know of my Grandfather I know from stories. He did live into my adulthood, but we were never close, much to my regret. Recently my Mother relayed one of his teachings: “You always make time to visit the sick and bury the dead”. I always […]
