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’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 …

How many times a day do I find myself asking my kids this very question?  Their little bodies sometimes crave one thing while their minds seek out something else.  Their body whispers “green beans” while their mind shouts “chocolate chip cookies”! One of my prayers every morning before I start my day is that God …
Today was one of those days that if I wasn’t looking for a muzzle to put on my mouth to prevent me from saying (or yelling) something stupid, I was looking for my foot to put it in afterwards. Everything my kids were doing or saying seemed to get on my nerves. Today was one …
I always dreamt of being a stay-at-home mom. For as long as I can remember, I hoped and imagined that when I had kids someday, I would be home to take care of them rather than working. I admit that I even judged some moms who worked rather than staying at home. I was convinced …
Today was a tough day. One of those days that tests you in every way. I woke up with a sore throat that continued all day along with a general malaise. I recently began staying at home with both my kids on my off days. I have found incredible grace to do this and praying …
