The Funny Shorts Story

The Funny Shorts Story

My son threw his shorts up onto the hall light. I know he didn’t mean to, but it happened, and I couldn’t help but laugh. My kids enjoy their baths together. For now, at least. After all, I do have one boy and one girl. […]

The One Thing Having Kids Taught Me About the Human Body (That I Probably Should Have Known)

The One Thing Having Kids Taught Me About the Human Body (That I Probably Should Have Known)

I love that my kids are always learning and exploring and teaching me new things all the time. Their endless questions keep my brain working and Google functioning. Now, I know the human body must grow as the child ages. I know they can’t stay […]

I’m a Stay-At-Home Mom and I Sit and Eat Chocolate More Often Than You Think

I’m a Stay-At-Home Mom and I Sit and Eat Chocolate More Often Than You Think

It’s true, and I blame my daughter. The stereotype goes that stay-at-home moms sit and eat bonbons all day. And sometimes watching soap operas gets thrown in. When I was a mom of just one, I would laugh. My son was constantly on the move. […]

Smile: My Miscarriage Story (Repost)

Smile: My Miscarriage Story (Repost)

As October 15 is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, I am reposting my miscarriage story, which was originally posted on March 26, 2018. My son was born 4 years ago, before “rainbow baby” was a commonly used term. I certainly hadn’t heard of it […]

Looking Forward to Break Time

Looking Forward to Break Time

The days are long for a reason. We parents all know the saying. The days are long, but the years are short. Well, I’m starting to think the days are long for a reason. It may be tough, but every moment can be filled with […]

An Apology to my Cat

An Apology to my Cat

Dearest Xena, My fluffy baby kitty, I am sorry, but I have introduced chaos into your life. I have given you not one, but two screaming siblings. When you first came home with me, it was just us: you, me, dad, and sister hamster. It […]

Sleep Deprived Dreams

Sleep Deprived Dreams

My daughter seems to be teething non-stop these days. While I’m glad she has more than two teeth, it means she sleeps very fitfully. Any noise will wake her. She’ll take an hour to settle down. She’ll just want to be held for an hour. […]

Instafamous or Blissful Obscurity?

Instafamous or Blissful Obscurity?

I saw a shirt in a children’s clothing store that read #instafamous. Perhaps you’ve seen it, too. Perhaps your child even has it. I’ve seen at least one toddler wearing it already. But it made me stop and think, and what better day to ruminate […]

What Day Is It?

What Day Is It?

I never know what day it is. The sad part is I have a giant calendar hanging on the wall (that I change every day), a planner, a phone that gives me the day and date, a computer, a tablet, and a TV that tells […]

“What Did You Do to Your Walls?!”

“What Did You Do to Your Walls?!”

Earlier today I was reading  Harold and the Purple Crayon to my kids. It’s a cute classic from 1955 with a lot of purple (of course). While I enjoyed Harold’s creativity and hope my kids pick up on it, as an adult I wonder if […]
