Summer's End #PoetryCollaboration

Welcome to this month's poetry collaboration! Last month, we chose the theme 'Wacky and Weird'. This month, we chose the theme 'Back to school'. Hopefully, you enjoy my contribution! Don't forget to check out all the other contributions, using the links at the end of my post!

Poem 1 (School):

Stressing out.
Chemistry, Calculus, Computer Science, Choir.
Hitting the books nightly.
Outstanding performance during gym.
Ogling your crush from afar.
Learning all you can.

Poem 2 (First Day):

It's the day I have been dreading since you were born.
Your first day of school.
The first day, of me leaving you, and you not needing me as much.
The day your independence truly begins.
You will learn so many things.
Your brain will be filled with knowledge.
Your future will start to form.
Your teachers and your friends will become important figures in your life.
I will no longer be the most  important person in your life.
Soon, I will no longer be your best friend.
You are full of excitment and I am full of worry.
I know this is great for both of us.
I just will take more time to adjust than you.
Don't get me wrong, I am very happy for you.
I am just a bit sad too.
I am so proud of you.
My little girl is now a student.
Soon, your nights will be full of studying, and less time to play with Mommy.
Soon, you will be graduating, and leaving home for college.
Soon, you will be a young woman.
So, for now, I will cling to you being little, as long as I can.
Just know, I will always love you, and I am always here for you.
If you need help with homework, or help studying for the big test, come to me.
If you need to vent about your friend not wanting to share toys with you, come to me.
If you need advice about boys, come to me.
If you need your mommy, just know I will always be here.
Long before you were a student, you were my baby.
No matter how grown and smart you become, you will always be my baby.
So, happy first day of school.
Happy first day of the rest of your life.

Now, go see what poetry these other blogging poets have for you:

Karen of Baking In A Tornado
Dawn of Spatulas On Parade
Diane of On The Border


  1. So bittersweet, those milestones. First day of school will be sad and wonderful, you captured both emotions so well.

  2. I remember the first day of school for each of my kids like it was yesterday, and it was a LONG time ago. It is bittersweet but such a joy to watch them grow and learn.

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.

This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
