A Week In Mommyland (Week 19)

13 May

This was a fast and furious week of getting ready for vacation and preschool events.

By now I’m probably winging my way to Miami for a much needed (and I think deserved) girls cruise. I will be spending the next week on a Carnival Cruise Liner having some fun in the sun. Next week’s Week In Mommyland should be interesting.



I find myself getting sappier with every passing year. I got this in a fortune cookie and it really rang true to me.

Hey, I’ve never claimed to be normal.



Even though Bill isn’t on the course anymore Cameron is still so proud of his golf course heritage.



I’ve had it with the wacky weather we’ve been having. Aren’t APRIL showers supposed to bring May flowers? Cold, dark and rainy is NOT what I like in May.



Thursday was Logan’s Mother’s Day performance. It was too stinking cute!

Logan sang his little heart out for me and was so excited to show off everything he had done. He was so proud of the plant that he decorated the pot and planted himself.

How did my little baby become such a big kid?



Look out…I’m going to run not one but two half marathons this fall. Bill is going to run them “with” me, of course he’ll be a few minutes behind me.

He got us the 13.1 magnets for our cars to make sure we don’t chicken out. I’m not going to be a poser so that baby won’t go on my car until AFTER I finish.



We absolutely LOVE having Longwood gardens so close to home. Nothing to do on a Saturday afternoon? Let’s buzz on over to Longwood for a little walk around.

The cat is Logan’s favorite part and no visit is complete without saying hello. You can find the cat around the Dupont house and he’s totally chill with everyone. Tell me that cat doesn’t have THE life!



Cameron gave me this this morning. How cute is he? I love how he tried to draw actual lips instead of just giving me a smiley face. Look at my giant man hands!

Cards are great and I do enjoy them but this is something I’ll have hanging up at my desk that will make me smile every single time I look at it.

I hope all you mamas out there had a WONDERFUL Mother’s Day and it wasn’t just another Sunday for you.

See you next week with some photos of the cruise.

Have a great week.


How My Life Was Forever Changed On A Thursday Morning.

30 Apr

Bill and I have been married for more than eight years now and it’ll be ten years since we met this September.

I’d say I’ve grown accustom to the Turf Lifestyle, I don’t always like it but it’s all I can remember now. I’ve gotten used to doing a lot of things on my own. I’ve learned to love those rides around the golf course.


Ah, the rides around the course. It used to be just Bill and I. Then it was Bill and I with the dog. Then it was Bill, Cameron and I and sometimes the dog. Then along came Logan and the four of us rode the course together. Of course the boys love the rides as much as I do and would beg to get to visit Bill for a ride around.

I have so many wonderful memories that were made on a golf course…Yet have very little to do with the sport of golf.

A few weeks ago Bill resigned his position at the course to move his career (and our lives) in a new direction. Thankfully we will be staying on The Hill.

All at once our family dynamic has changed. The man who left for work before 5am somedays and often would not return until dinnertime is now working from the house. We’re now sharing an office with matching his and her work spaces.


Don’t get me wrong, I love having him around, it’s just different. The past couple weeks have really taken some getting used to on both of our parts. The man spent the better part of two decades on a golf course for goodness sake.

I feel like I always have to be up and doing something now that he’s home but somehow I’m not getting the things that need to be done completed. I feel like he’s always up in my business now and those phone calls with my mom (that sometimes happen multiple times a day) have become few and far between. I’ll admit it’s sometimes frustrating to have him working out of the house, having to keep the house quiet while he’s on a call or web chat is a challenge. It’s also hard to get used to the fact that just because he’s here it doesn’t mean he’s at our beck and call for things.

I have a feeling that the summertime will be a challenge when the boys are off from school and want nothing more than to play with their dad.

I’m excited to see where this new path will take us and I’m sure it’s bound to be an adventure.
