Christmas is chaotic!

It's amazing to me that we spend all year gearing up for one day, Christmas. I realize some of you reading this don't celebrate Christmas, and quite frankly...I'm a little jealous. No, my religion is important to me and I enjoy having this time of year to celebrate "The Reason for the Season" (I think I saw that on a billboard somewhere), but once you have children, the reason becomes how many toys Santa brought them! Man oh man, was our day filled with total chaos! We opened presents from Santa at our house in the morning, then we went to my parents house where Santa apparently thought my children were deprived! They tore through the presents like a tornado, and then went down into their basement to see how they all worked. For about 10 minutes, before all of the fighting began, there was actual peace! My parents and I sat and looked at each other like we had just been robbed! We were robbed by three little boys, who on the outside remind us of such sweet children, but then give them a box wrapped in decorative paper, and forget about it. They are not as sweet as they look. My oldest son Jack said to me yesterday, "Mom we 364 more days until Christmas!" Oh my gosh, that's all I have?!?!

OnTray, Wholesale!

I have a couple of sales reps that are carrying OnTray in their line of offerings, and I have OnTray available at few stores, and a few online stores too. I'd love to see OnTray available anywhere and everywhere (well maybe not anywhere or everywhere, but you understand). Where would you like to see OnTray available? Maybe there's a small grocery store in your home town that I've never heard of, or maybe a great little children's boutique that carries unique items like OnTray. In any event, shoot me an e-mail at, or just reply to this post. I'd love to hear what you have to say!

I'm sitting here at my desk, and there is a bulletin board right in front of me. I had to laugh, because everything on it (except for a news clipping of Chad) is either an inspirational quote, a horoscope I cut out of the paper, or notes of encouragement from friends and business associates I've met along the way. Things like, "Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow' ". That was sent to me from another Mompreneur I've met throughout my journey named Jordon Golomb. She sells fantastic items on her site, Another card says, "Be patient, stay hopeful..." or one of my favorites, " last the ladder, which had been built slowly, slowly one hope at a time, reached to the clouds. And the dreamer began to climb." I know it sounds silly, but words like these help me. They put things in perspective. Words mean so much to me...they always have. I am so up and down with having brought my idea, my dream, to fruition. Knowing that people care enough about me to say things to me, send me notes of encouragement, or telling me to keep going, just reminds me how blessed I am. This product is not my only offering to the world, but I love that I am surrounded by words to pick me up when I am down, or keep a smile on my face when I am up.
