Mommy doesn’t feel good… Mommy’s tired… Mommy needs to lay down… Mommy doesn’t feel good… If you have a hard time staring at piled up laundry that needs to be folded, dishes that need to be put away, kids’ homework that needs help, bills to be paid, grocery lists, and objects piled up around the …
In this post, I share about the privilege of allowing my young son a preview of the dance between a woman and a man. Dear son, Wow. You are a son. What gives me as a woman the right to raise you, a boy? You were my second-born. When your sister came along, I could …
It is both a blessing and a challenge to raise kids of varying age ranges at the same time. I have the privilege this month of contributing to an exciting new series! It’s called “31 Days of Trusting in God”. Click “read post” below to get the link info. Click here to read my post …
It’s 8:30pm and my 3 year-old boy is finally in bed. I think. My 5 year-old daughter is already sleeping in her room. My day typically starts with this sweet little boy face and arms wrapped around Barney coming to our bed at about 6am. Some days he’s not totally in bed until 9pm. I’ll …
