I’m Lisha (pronounced “Leee-sha,”) a working mother to three sons, embracing my midlife years and joyfully accepting the fact that I have turned into my mother. I live in the suburbs of New Orleans, where I enjoy an eclectic lifestyle that includes lots of laughter, good food, and wine. I have been blessed abundantly, and try to share those blessings whenever I can.

I am new here to WP so I’m stalking the comment sections of blogs I already follow to find new blogs to follow… that’s why I’m here!
Looking forward to gleaning from your wisdom!!!
Welcome to WP! We have quite a community here. Heading over to check out your site now.
Beautiful posts, great words. I am instantly connected.
Nominated you for “Inspiring Blogger” … just click back to http://lipstickandchaos.wordpress.com/2013/02/03/inspiring-blogger-thank-you-said-in-earnest/ Thanks for the great reads!!!
Well, I just answered my own question on your latest post. New Olreans! I was just there. I am in Lafayette. Sounds like you have a lot of blessings in your life!
Hi, there, LM! I’m giving you the LOL Award! I will be posting about it tomorrow, so please check it out, and enjoy. Thanks for sharing and writing such a terrific blog. 🙂 -SWM
I’ve been reading all around on your site and just love it! Your philosophy on parenting is spot on. I love your advice to younger mothers, as I, too, see them struggling with all the “nonsense” that they just need to let go of, but it’s a lesson they need to learn, just as we mothers of older children have learned.
I’m in the process of updating my blog, “Pause and Smile”, and I was wondering if I could add you to my blogroll. I love to share good writers with the followers of my blog. Many of my blog-followers are mothers of teenage children, while some are just starting out – they would definitely benefit from your writings.
Just let me know through a reply to this comment, or you can contact me at email@example.com , for now. Soon I will be adding a “contact me” to my site with a blog-related e-mail.
Wow! I’m blushing! Thanks for the kind words.
I’d love to join your blogroll. And tomorrow, I promise to hop over and surf around. 🙂
Thanks for your permission, Lisha; I’ll have you added in a day or two. Are you on Twitter? I have created a list of bloggers that I follow/and they follow me…. if you’re on, I could add you to that as well.
I’m not (yet) on Twitter, but I think it’s inevitable. 🙂
Wow, I love your “about” page. Super fun descriptions of what sounds like a terrific family! I decided to meander about your blog via Transitioning Mom’s suggestion, and so glad I did! I also read the “Boy Cave” entry, and I have to share, my daughter’s room looks just like ’em, except it’s pink, green, and purple polkadots, LOL. 🙂 Heading to the “Join the Party” button. Good job, LM!
Thanks!! I’m so happy you stopped by! Yes, those Boy Caves have been both the bane of my day and the joy of my day. It just depends on the day!
Dying to know what suburb! Are you in Metaire? River Ridge? Hanrahan? Would be so much fun to sit somewhere and write with you! 😉
I live in Kenner, and my kids go to school in New Orleans. I’m all over the place!
I am coming down to meet you! Can’t wait! I used to drive through part of Kenner every day on my way to work at MPCDS!
You have come a long way from good old Killeen Tx. I can’t believe you have three kids that old. You were so young and ready to tackle the world. Looks like you have done a good joy.
Loved your blog! Sorry it took me so long to read it. Your stories are great and easy to relate to.
Thanks. I hope you come back and visit often!
Lisha: Love your blog! Glad you have found your happy place! And you are so right – Moms need to stick together!
Thanks so much! Stop by again soon!
Thanks for stopping by my blog (yeah, a little bit ago; I’ve been reading yours, but hadn’t gotten around to commenting). Being called very clearly to be anything *other* than mother, I’m pleased that my writing reached you. More power to you and your y-chromo heavy household. And good on Perro for at least looking you in the eye. Kiwi (cat) mostly looks me in the eye when she’s pushing for something. Thank you for sharing your life so candidly and with great humor. ~molly
Thanks for the kind words. We’ve got a lot to learn from each other!
I could write, “You had me at hello…” but you didn’t write hello. 🙂
Love the humor, the descriptions of the family members (including Perro!) and that you’re a mom like me (also married to an Italian LOL!)–doing the best you/we can to raise “normal” kids into functioning adults.
I’m going to enjoy following your journey!
Thanks! I really am a Lucky Mom. 🙂 I might have to rely on you to give me some insight into girls!
Ha ha ha. I love the intro! My 2 boys are still young but I can totally relate, especially for you wishing Trailblazer has a kid like him. I am so happy I discovered another Lucky Mom!
It’s always great to find a kindred!

I love your descriptions of your family members! It is amazing to read the things of other’s lives and relate to the similarities of the chaos resulting from actual living!
It’s true. We have more similarities than differences. Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be by to visit your site, too!
Great as always. I would say you could also list yourself as a “Great Communicator”!
Wow! More validation! This is awesome!!!!
