lovey dovey

I love my family!

I am a wife, mother of three beautiful boys, and a middle school administrator. At times, I have mistakenly tried to achieve perfection in each role. These attempts always fail miserably because there is no such thing as a perfect wife, a perfect mom or a perfect worker! I decided to relinquished my pursuit of perfection…I can say without guilt that my shortcomings are vast and my mistakes many. Embracing my imperfections and turning my life over to God has been freeing and led to a sweeter life. I found that when I quit trying so hard, that SOMETIMES things magically fall into place and for brief moments I am “Supermom.”

The Chicken Costume has Hatched!

Darn!  I had big plans for an elaborate chicken costume (Martha Stewart style), but Ryan, my 2nd grader, broke the news to me that the other chickens in the school play were going to have simple costumes.  He begged me not to make the "baby" MS inspired one posted below.  Rather than mortifying Ryan, I went simple.  So, the simple costume was a yellow t-shirt, a Chicken head mask & beak from Party Supply, red feather boa, Dad's "Tom Cruise" glasses, and yellow rubber gloves for the feet.  He did look pretty cute.  The Barnyard Moosical was a success!  I think the chickens performed the best w/their Funky Chicken Dance.  It was all caught on video to later pull out for Ryan's future girlfriends! 
The gloves fit perfectly over his Nike Sandals. 

Two Funky Chickens! 

Chicken Little (brother).  He just had to put the costume on.  I had to show waist up, because he refused to put clothes on and the Transformer underwear didn't go with the chicken attire.  :)


  1. Excellent, just been told my son will be a chicken in this years naivety and your idea is great!
    Thank you for posting this because all other chicken costumes I've seen are very elaborate, the glove feet are the best!
